Image from Arkhefield Architecture
While reading the Saturday Courier-Mail, I spotted this house in the Space section of the Qweekend. It was a brief article regarding the renovation of a 1930s cottage in Toowong, completed by Queensland architectural firm Arkhefield. You can check out the project brief here if you are hard core (like me).
I am sharing this image with you purely because of the exterior colour scheme. This is what we have decided for our house. White with minimal dark, almost black trim. (The trim looks like 70 per cent Lindt chocolate brown if you think food analogy). I haven't seen many pure white painted Queenslanders with dark trim (but I don't get out to the more salubrious suburbs), so I was very pleased to see this photo.
I think our house would look great like this. Nothing like a photo to get one inspired! As I've said before,we need to lose the heritage colours and the rendered Tuscan apricot look we currently have. I believe Tuscan apricot and heritage are words which should never to be uttered together.
Also, you must congratulate me on Fun and VJs' first year anniversary - a blogiversary! One year of consistent blogging about all things house related.
I've been very fortunate to have such a lovely community of readers/lurkers and a great band of gracious commenters who are a lot of fun! The gold comments I receive are priceless. Thank-you everyone!
