"Verandah House Interiors" ~ Judy Elliott ~ Congratulations!


Happy Friday everyone ~ today I am so excited to bring you the beautiful home of interior designer, Judy Elliott of Verandah House Interiors in Brisbane!  Judy is featured in the latest edition of  Home Beautiful April Edition and it is breathtaking.... I have always known Judy's work to be exceptional but this was inspiring!  Her use of colour, pattern and texture on a white background is extraordinary .... when I picked up Home Beautiful looking for some inspiration I found it!  It seriously made my day .. and I felt in awe of such talent ...



Judy's house in Brisbane is shared with her husband, Paul and daughter's, Alexa and Lily... and they have basically done it themselves from the ground up ... a stunning piece of work amidst much adversity ... they tragically lost Paul's 17 year old son, Nathan,  in a car accident which changed their lives forever ....... their courage is an extraordinary tale and I salute them .... 


This is one of my favourites ... drooling right now!  The bold use of Designer's Guild wallpaper is a triumph coupled with the white linen fabric piped in navy ... cool, elegant and sophisticated with a touch of whimsy for the backdrop.  The plaster mantle was added by Judy and I actually used the same mantle in our bedroom as we wanted that extra architectural detailing and it adds such depth to an interior. The use of glass reflects the faux white bamboo coffee table ..  my favourite though is the painted white floor ... gorgeous!




Brave new world indeed .... congratulations!


Judy's gorgeous daughters, Alexa and Lily have fun playing cards in the reading room .... 


Love the use of subway tiles in the kitchen ... classic and timeless ....


The powder blue bamboo dining chairs are a fabulous contrast to the warmth of the antique dining table ..... The Stroheim wallpaper adds an exotic touch to create the mood ... but notice it doesn't overpower .. above picture rail height is all white ... fresh and crisp ..


I just have to show this view of the drawing/lounge room ... this is on Verandah House website ... this shows the faux mantle ....


the blue and white porcelain is so elegant ...





Chanel artwork ... perfect ... love the silver framing on the ice blue walls ..... 



Stunning ... white painted floors ... art deco chandelier and mirror ... freestanding double ended french slipper bath with  traditional hardware .... this could be a bathroom for Coco Chanel herself!


Welcome to Queensland ... this is our lifestyle .... verandahs ... relaxing... casual style ..





I think I will take this chair and settle in for the week-end!  Congratulations to Judy and her lovely family on a stunning home!  Visit Judy and her eldest, daughter, Jess at www.verandahhouseinteriors.com.au
and if you are in Brisbane then you are lucky because Judy and Jess can help you with all of these beautiful pieces .... I am in awe of a great talent!
Happy Weekend!!!!! Now I am off to cuddle my daughter, Georgiana, who is home from camp and busting with stories and of course we have to have Maccas tonight!  Special treat for the intrepid traveller!!!!

Lovely home. You left me a comment on my MA teacup on my blog. I got it from boutiques Musee de France and one I picked up in gift shop at Versailles a few years ago. I do not think they have them now I do not see them on line. It is pattern by Raynaud Petit Trianon MA's traveling set.I am obsessed with MA and 18th Century France yes I think we are a lot alike! I am going to France this year hope to find a guide at Versailles who knows background info on court customs etc have you taken a tour like that? I am researching now.

What a fabulous home - love all of the attention to detail and the bamboo chairs in the dining room I adore! Would love to have my morning coffee on the porch...wonderful!!

It looks fabulous! It's very much the kind of interior I would have imagined in a place with a much hotter climate than the UK. It looks wonderful because it works with the light and the weather (that's what I think anyway) and I know that most of it would look completely out of place over here...

Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog! I hope you're well and wish you and your family and very happy Easter. Love from (freezing) London xo

A lot of these items would go really well on a verandah. I should see if anything would match my house. I have many different style going on that would change the whole mood of the place.

While the price quote that you receive from a contractor is a best estimate, you should anticipate unexpected costs that can inflate the costs of your home renovation.
