Kalinga Renovation – Thats a Wrap!

Kalinga Renovation

And thats a wrap! We’re so thrilled to have handed over our beautiful Kalinga renovation recently. The client’s words on handover day:

“Thank you for helping me realise my dream for this house. You made it so easy!”

This is why I do what I do – helping my lovely clients who are so busy with family, work and other commitments, that they just need someone who can make it all happen for them.

My Old Queenslander Project

My client at Kalinga has a beautiful old Queenslander home that needs a little love and TLC. Now Queenslanders can present themselves in a number of different ways. Some people love the Hamptons look with clean and crisp whites, some people love the Traditional look with heritage features and some people love a little bit of everything to reflect their eclectic lifestyle.
In this home, we were aiming to mix a little bit of Traditional Heritage with a little bit of eclectic to really express the character and personality of my client.

Green is featured predominantly in this design. In the Kitchen the client was adamant on having a green oven that creates a stunning centre piece for the open bright kitchen, a contrast to the small dark interior of the original kitchen.

In the bathroom, a gorgeous cast iron claw foot bath takes centre stage that stands out with its calming green colour, tying in to the subtle green subway tiles that surround the bathroom walls.

Kitchen Transformation

Here’s a little sneak peek of the kitchen with the incredible transformation that was centred around my client’s surprise purchase of this stunning SMEG freestanding cooker and matching rangehood in Olive Green, paired with the pretty celery green subway tiles we selected from The Tile Mob Pty Ltd.

The project brief for our client was to design a kitchen that’s light and bright, a little bit country, a little bit eclectic with solid timber benchtops, a large farmhouse fireclay sink, and give me more storage!

And the before photos at the end are a must! If you have any questions about the features of this kitchen, please ask away!

I’m so thankful for my amazing trade and supply partners involved in this kitchen transformation.
