I just styled this gorgeous historic home for Country Collections magazine – it’s a beautiful old sandstone building, which is unusual for Brisbane, and is big and rambling with high ceilings, antique chandeliers and wide verandas. The lovely family who own it now are going to slowly re-decorate – how fabulous would that be?! What a beautiful home to work with. The Laura Ashley wallpaper was going to go but now the new owner has grown fond of it so will keep at least one wall – look out for the full story coming up in Country Collections. Have a gorgeous day – sunny and 30 in Brisbane – and I’m off to buy flowers for tomorrow’s shoot – which reminds me, if you have a home that you think might be suitable for a magazine shoot – let me know (doesn’t have to be this grand! Can even just be a lovely little reno but does need to be well-loved with lots of personality), I’m always scouting and would love to hear from you! – please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
