Lisa, QLD

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

When Lisa and her hus­band, Nigel, bought this clas­sic Queens­land prop­erty, the house was in need of plenty of TLC. Along with ren­o­vat­ing the in­te­ri­ors, the couple built decks at both the front and back as well as an art stu­dio for Lisa. “The large rear out­door deck is our best ad­di­tion,” says Lisa. “We of­ten sit out here with a cuppa and watch our daugh­ter play in her cub­by­house.” Ac­cessed from the house via tri-stack glass doors and lead­ing on to the art stu­dio, the deck has lou­vres for pro­tec­tion from the weather. “When it rains we close the lou­vres and drop the bistro blinds and it be­comes an­other sit­ting area,” says Lisa.

OUT­DOORS TO IN Lisa and Nigel built the cus­tom bench seat, with stor­age un­der­neath, and had it up­hol­stered. Lisa says the bench is a “fab­u­lous spot for an af­ter­noon siesta”.
