Residential home in Ocean Grove / lounge area

Interior Decorating

This house in Ocean Grove was my first complete renovation and I must admit it has a special place in my heart. My client and I worked intensely together and it was an amazing journey in which the outcome was very satisfying. The house as it was needed a more modern look in which an overall casual, neat, light, relaxing and welcome feel was the aim. The lounge area looked out of date and the overall feel was dark. I created a modern lounge area with a casual feel, easy to maintain and suitable for all visitors. By painting the window frames the space looked more open and brought the outdoors really in. My client is really using this lounge area now when entertaining over a drink and nibbles, so mission accomplished. 

Beautiful space

When I arrived home from a short trip away I couldn’t believe my eyes as I entered my room. It was if I had walked into a different home and instantly fell in love. Everything was so thought out and specialised to suit my needs. The colours and ornaments fit my personality perfectly and the extra space created a completely new and open feel. I look forward to spending time in my room these days and love the simplicity in cleaning it up and maintaining my new beautiful space.


Place to call my home
