DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM HOME
My Dream home would be a beautifully restored Queenslander. Seeing past the old and creating a beautiful elegant functional home is an amazing feeling of achievement. Having done two of them so far – I may even contemplate a third to satisfy my love of Interior Design.
WHAT’S YOUR #1 TIP FOR MAKING A HOUSE A HOME?
Colour is my ‘Thing’. Starting with a neutral palette is the key, then adding signature pieces in colour, be it a feature chair, cushions that beg to be snuggled into, warm rugs and pieces of statement artwork that add interest as soon as you enter.
WHAT PATH LED YOU TO FURNISH AND FINISH?
Most of my life has been spent as a Real Estate Agent and my passion is colour, style and presenting homes in their very best light to allow buyers to feel at home as soon as they enter a property. Knowing how a buyer thinks, what is important to them, combined with a strong belief in the benefits of Property Styling led me to Furnish and Finish. It is still within the realm of Real Estate connecting houses with people – which is the part I love the most.
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?
In the people you meet, their stories, their homes and how and why they live where they do. Everyone you meet is for a reason and to assist in their journey is ‘Gold’.
