SURRY HILLS TERRACE

Having lived in her home for a number of years, my client had grown tired of its soft blue walls and said was done “playing it safe with colour”. She wanted to have more fun with it, to inject more of her personality into the home and to fall in love with it all over again. This project started off  with all new paint colours inside and out and a full bathroom renovation in the main bathroom. Then, the selection of a few new furniture pieces and of course those all important soft furnishings helped complete the new look, which I’m please report the client loved.

I worked with Laura when I decided to renovate my small terrace. Laura worked on my ideas, suggested lots of things I would never have thought of and chose paint colours, tiles, furnishings – all that have made a huge difference. In particular, when I wanted a particular shade of green for my living room and thought I had decided, she came back to my house with a different suggestion and her words of – I’ve been thinking what we chose was not quite right, this is better. And it is! It’s that kind of care and detail that makes working with Laura a pleasure. She chose beautiful things, that were exactly aligned to my style, but has also challenged me to think differently about some aspects. And it has really paid off. I love my house and renovations and wouldn’t change a thing. We’re now working on the styling and I’m enjoying every minute. Laura is professional and very easy-going, it’s a real pleasure to bounce ideas and work with her! ~ Elaine, Surry Hills
