I was very excited to be taking on this project as it allowed me to start with a blank canvas. Megan was well underway with gutting her home and was ready to start looking at paint, lighting, furniture and finishing touches.
For the most part we were buying new furniture, with the exception of a few important pieces I would be bringing into the new design.
This project started 8 weeks out to Christmas and finished right on the 23rd December, in time for Megan’s first Christmas party.
Here is a run down of the idea process, time frames and costings as well as lots of photos.
In the first meeting Megan we discussed what was important to her, what she wanted to keep and what she was happy to part with.
Using this information I came up with the below designs to show her at the next meeting. Megan’s home is an open plan living, kitchen, dining space. We also complete a design for her bedroom and started on the office.
Kitchen/ all spaces combined
Megan approved my designs, so I was off to the shops.
I purchased most of the furniture from At Home in Osborne Park. This included the custom made lounge and arm chair. Both of which were made locally.
My lighting is sourced form Home Decor Windsor in NSW.
The ETU was custom built by Sheer Cabinetry.
For the walls I chose Dulux Antique Linen for the doors and skirting we used Dulux White on White, this was also used for the kitchen cupboards.
This project took 8 weeks and cost under $20k, including my fee. This $20k furnished the living, dining and bedroom. It also covered all lighting and finishing touches ( cushions, rugs, plants etc)
This project was a great experience as I got to work closely with Megans’s builder and my contractors to get this ready in time for Megan’s deadline of pre-christmas.
Above is Megan’s existing coffee table, I added a smaller table to compliment this. The coffee table its self was too small for the space, but instead of not using it I added a table for size and it added an interesting element to the room. I am also showing the rug and fabric colours in the second photo. In the third it shows the flooring with the arm chair fabric.
