Brisbane home tour: Wilston

The more I dig, the more I am uncovering some amazingly talented people who call Brisbane their home.

Once upon a time, there was a notion that nothing much happened here in Brisbane, but I think that idea is well and truly buried deep underground and Brisbane is home to oodles of people who are constantly doing and making amazingly creative things.

One such talented person is Brisbane photographer Hannah McCawley.

Today we are sharing some of Hannah’s work as she uncovered this glorious little home in Wilston, bursting with floral fun and cosy Nanna-style goodness and just perfect for a sticky beak with Walk Among the Homes.

Brisbane home tour: Wilston

Welcome to the Wilston!

Wilston is an area that has undergone a huge transformation over the years with many homes being renovated or demolished in favour of a more modern nest, so I highly doubt there are any other homes in the suburb that are as unique as this one!

Clearly, the people who live in this home are just as talented and creative as Hannah, you can just tell by looking through these perfectly curated rooms, full of vintage treasures and sweetness.

This home is fortunate to have escaped development and it displays so many original features, quite possibly even the paint colours, that are rare to see these days.
The VJ (aka tongue and groove) panel walls and ceilings are reminiscent of the days in which this big old girl was built and are still looking fabulous after all of these years.

The Walk Among The Homes low down:

Who lives here? 

A florist and an artmaker who love all things vintage and creative!

How big is it?

Our ‘pattern palace’ is a big old girl! She has 3 bedrooms and guest bedroom off the main bathroom, a large living room and spacious galley kitchen and dining area along with 2 large wrap around sunrooms.

What era is the home?

The old Queenslander home was built by a Greek shipping merchant in 1901!

What are your favourite features and why?

My favourite features are the beautiful light that floods the house, the space, the pretty pink bathroom and the views from the bedrooms and sunrooms.

Can you describe the home in 5 words?

Quirky, inviting, warm, light and homely.

Any quirky facts or funny stories?

Not really but we think we are two pretty quirky, funny girls who have loved living in this old place. We do hear lots of creaks and cracks and dream up horror stories that its haunted but most of all its a warm and inviting space and we love living there.
