Keven & Sarah’s Story

Keven and Sarah had lived in their Brisbane Northside home for approximately 20 years but had never made it their own. With their children grown up and independent, they decided it was time to take the plunge.

They love their neighbourhood and plan to stay in their much loved family home for many more years. This was a major renovation project, both internally and externally, where I worked very closely with both Sarah and Keven to design their kitchen, bathroom, ensuite, laundry and powder room. They have a very busy lifestyle, so were relieved to be able to hand over all of the design, selections, and trade liaison to myself, where we transformed everything from the roof, window and external house paint colours to moving walls and opening up rooms to create much improved flow and natural light, to specifying new engineered timber flooring, all new window treatments and new furniture throughout.

Transforming the 1980’s “Aussie Colonial” into a stunning “Hamptons Colonial” home, it finally felt like they were “home”.

Their Feedback

Read what Keven and Sarah had to say about their experience working with me …

We worked with Verona on our house renovation for a little over 12 months from our initial contact meeting through to completion and beyond. It was a big step and investment for us, and we will forever be grateful for the design and project facilitation she provided us, which made the build a relatively low stress process for us with an outstanding result.

Verona was able to provide us with her valuable insights and experience, which enabled us to transform our house into the home we had always wanted.

From our first meeting onwards, we were filled with a sense of confidence in her ideas and understanding of what we were hoping to achieve. Verona kept us up to date at all stages of the project and ensured that the work was done professionally and with care responding to our questions and concerns quickly and efficiently. When changes needed to be made, she came to us with well thought out options which ensured that the project kept moving at a steady pace.

Most importantly we felt Verona was just as invested in our home as we were and that she would not rest until we had achieved the best result possible while at all times keeping our needs foremost in her mind. We cannot thank her enough for our wonderful new living space.

Running their own business, Dave & Liz needed help making decisions on things that just weren’t “up their alley” as they explained at our first meeting.
