Everything old is new again

I love a good renovation, and this one is pretty spectacular. Take one old Queenslander, work some reno magic and this is what you get.



love the wallpaper





As a departure from the more conventional white walls, the owners have chosen darker paint and wallpaper to create drama and interest. As well, the exterior has been painted charcoal with crisp white trim. It's not a  common choice here in Brisbane, and it really gives this home a point of difference. And how about those red and white striped blinds in the last image - love them!

Have a great day
