Now that the excitement of the past few days has died down a little, I thought I'd revisit my previous posts on Hamptons meets Queenslander style. I think both of these homes are just gorgeous, and I love the fusion of traditional Queensland architecture with that crisp, elegant Hamptons style. And while we're on the subject of
combining architectural styles, I thought it would be fun to combine some of my favourite decorative elements into a virtual design for this home.
I'd gather unique pieces
I'd take a leaf out of Meg Braff's design book
throw in a little of Collette Dinnigan's style
add an unexpected pop of turquoise
arrange a vignette or two
of course, I'd have to have the ubiquitous Queensland verandah
include some grass cloth wallpaper and custom cabinetry
and to top it all off, incorporate some Windsor Smith magic
Of course, each of us has our own personal style, and this is merely my interpretation of Queensland meets the Hamptons. I'd love to hear what you'd do - would you go traditional, or maybe contemporary? Mid-century modern or country cottage, or maybe something completely different? And the best part of this virtual design process - you're only limited by your imagination!
