Brisbane Home Tour: Tarragindi

A few weeks back, I joined forces with Trina from Sandpearl ID to style some homes.

One of them was the eclectic, crafty space in an old Queenslander at Wooloowin and this one was quite the opposite; a new, blank canvas.

It was great to transform this newly renovated home with a few simple additions and I love getting back to my roots, shuffling around with the styling and propping for this shoot while Trina worked her magic on the camera.

Brisbane House Tour: Tarragindi

This home is very much in touch with nature as it backs on to a bushland reserve and is perched between the trees with green views from every window.  Something that I personally love in a home!

In it’s former life, the home was affectionately known as ‘The Boat House’ thanks to the lifebuoys that hung from the front verandah pre-renovation.

Though they are no longer there (except in the old black and white photos serving a reminder on the walls) the home still has some coastal inclinations with a bright, white beachy feel.

Extensive renovations have given this older home a facelift and it now houses a new kitchen with a huge walk in pantry, bathrooms, shiny timber floors and bright, white walls.

If you look closely, you can see the black and white framed photos on the wall showing the home in it’s pre-renovation condition, complete with lifebuoys!

Thankfully, the owner was happy to let us move things around and rummage through her fridge for props (as you do!) to show you a different kind of Brisbane ‘mini’ home tour and also to showcase Trina’s amazing photography.  You can see more on her website.

Have you done a major transformation on your Brisbane home?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
