WORK WE'VE DONE
01 B A T H R O O M R E N O V A T I O N
We completely gutted this bathroom and started again: We made the window smaller, (it overlooks a dull courtyard) swung the toilet around so as to hide the waste pipe, added a stylish new vanity with caesarstone top and modern basin. We ditched the old bath and replaced it with a walk-in shower. Then for the final touches: painted the walls a light shade of grey, upcycled an old mirror, added a stylish fabric blind and accessorised with photo frames, a small ornate wall shelf and some glass bottles

Do you have a playroom that needs organising?
Are you always looking for clever storage solutions for all that clutter?
We've always believed in the discipline that unless there's a dedicated place for xyz, it will remain on the floor! Especially with kids toys, books and stationery. Give us a call for a playroom consult where we can help you rearrange, declutter and advise on the best room layout for a workable space.
For this client's entrance hall we filled in the archway, (and made a pantry entrance around the corner) smooth plastered the walls, (wallpaper can only be adhered to smooth walls) removed the unecessary handrail and then added this high-impact wallpaper. What a transformation!
03 ENTRANCE HALL
04 TEENAGE BEDROOM
This teenager wanted a room filled with drama and glam....and so we wallpapered a section of the wall behind her bed, used black accents (in the pinboard and bedthrow) and made up some stunning scatters in a bold black and white floral. To finish the look we added a silver blanket box at the end of her bed (perfect for storing sports gear), some interesting bedside lamps, and a shag silver rug. The end result just blew her away!
05 BABY'S ROOM
This mom was so delighted to be having a girl that she wanted "all out" pretty. We made up stunning eyelit, blockout curtains in a soft stripe, added in sweet florals for accent scatters and compactum cushion, a mozzie net for that girly feel and some custom-painted canvases to match a gifted quilt.
06 KITCHEN MAKEOVER
This dated kitchen needed a quick-fix. So we painted the doors (yip, you can paint formica, provided you use the correct primer) And replaced the cupboard handles with modern brushed stainless steel ones. And there you have it: what looks like a brand new kitchen in 2 days!
07 L I V I N G R O O M MAKEOVER
We were asked by this bachelor to help make his living area more "liveable". And so we added eyelit curtains to his north-facing sliding doors (made up in a plain linen fabric with blockout lining to minimize the glare) and a dramatic NY street scene wallpaper to the main wall. We finished the transformation with a lower tv unit (so that more of the wallpaper was visible), sidetables and some cool scatter cushions.
08 G U E S T L O O
By far one of thee quirkiest bathrooms we've ever created!
The walls are wallpapered with photostats of the family's choice of magazine articles...everything from Vogue to Sports Illustrated. Shiny black enamel touches, checkerboard black & white flooring and a glorious chandelier help finish off the look with some hot ppink accessories!

This little boy was moving into his "big boy" room. The brief was to create a room that was playful but at the same time, would last a good few years. We started with sturdy furniture and using an existing double matress, made up a bedframe with a clever pull-out underbed (perfect for sleepovers) We used a lime, blue and white stripe wallpaper for the feature wall, added a white bedside pedestal with a lamp (which we put on a dimmer switch) and added some fun bedlinen including a personalised name scatter which all kids love. We provided a neat storage solution for big toys - with pull out drawers and some hand-painted canvases by our clever artist. The kids craft table and chairs provides a seating area for colouring time. We used a well-priced plain blue denim for the curtains, with a blockout lining (for late sleeping, hopefully!) The end result was met with loads of joy from both child and parents.

This newly divorced mom of two wanted something more "girly" and whimsical in her bedroom. She adores roses and so we sourced this wallpaper mural of larger-than-life roses to adorn the main wall. We reupholstered her headboard in a silver vinyl, added some luxurious grey velvet scatters and crisp new white cotton bedlinen. On the opposite wall we hung a beautiful venetian glass mirror which reflects the sheer delight of the wallpaper while she rests up!

This young couple hated their existing kitchen but didn't have enough budget to completely redo...so they called us in and we: used all their existing kitchen carcasses (the insides of the cupboards) and painted the doors in a light stone colour then added funky new handles. Our team stripped the old tiles behind the stove and retiled with easy-to-clean glass mosaics. We added a cooker hood, new stovetop and oven and new updated taps at the sink. And last but not least new caesarstone counter tops - maximising workspace. They were absolutely stunned and delighted with the end result!

This young girl chose her paint colour all on her own and then it was left to us to makeover her room. We painted the main wall in a slightly darker shade of the turquoise, gave her a new headboard, double bed, new linen and scatters to snuggle into while reading (her favourite passtime) We made up fabric blinds in a sophisticated stripe fabric for a sleeker and more grown-up look. A blanket box (with a lid and hidden internal storage - perfect for winter clothes and blankets) was custom-made to fit a recess. Our artist decoupaged photos to make up a heart canvas as a once-off work of art. And then we had a custom desk made up for her with enough space to fit a laptop and shelves and cupboards to hide clutter.

We were fortunate enough to be involved in this livingroom transformation: we added new curtains, a stunning wallpaper (that looks like vintage wooden strips) reupholstered the sleeper couch in a durable vinyl, added more comfy seating and a fabulous rug...[even the dog loves his new space!]
