Paddington House









Here are some pictures of a house I have been working on lately in Paddington in Brisbane. We painted the entire house {an old timber Queenslander} white and added colour in the furnishings we selected. We did a complete mismatch of scatter cushions on new slip covered sofas and armchairs and included some vintage pieces of furniture. Overall the client is extremely happy with her {new} 'lived in' family friendly look!!

I love this look... because it is NOT a look, it is a real room to live in. I adore the couch with it's soft down cushions and the mis-matched pillows. Very, very lovely!

It's beautiful. I think the white walls with colour in the furnishings is your signature. And I love it! Wish you could come to my house:)

LOVE the fabric on the sofa. Are you able to tell us what range the fabric is from? We have a little cottage down at Sandgate and our poor old sofa needs recovering badly. I haven't known where to start looking, but that fabric is calling my name. :) Thank you.

MABELLE said...

HI Anna! I just wanted to let you know how excited I am to see my fabric in such a beautiful home all the way in Paddington!! So cool! Thank you for choosing it :) Hopefully I can meet you in person at the Decoration + Design show in February!
