A Koala in Kalinga

Terri and her family had spent several years living and working overseas and approached me to work alongside their builder to complete the renovation and furnishing of their three-story house in Kalinga so they could finally call Brisbane home again.

The initial phase of the project was spent via zoom and email to establish the overall scope of the project, until we finally met Terri and her family in person to present, what Terri said, “was nothing she could have ever imagined”.

Despite COVID, breaking my ankle on the final day of installation, and a bajillion delays with deliveries and lock-downs, it didn’t stop the successful outcome of this beautiful home. I feel very blessed to have worked with a brilliant build team, a very trusting and understanding client, and my gorgeous design team who literally carried me on the last day to hand-over.
