Paying for a Colour Consultation

I am not expensive, I listen to the Client and I take a thorough brief. I look at the orientation of your home, I take into consideration the natural light, your neighbour's homes and your neighbourhood. I am thoughtful in my colour specifications ... sometimes my head hurts thinking about it.

Base Paint

Take note .... Paint manufacturers have different base paints, then there are a range of bases generally 1 to 4 , then each manufacturer will vary the ingredients within their paint. So if you love a colour from 'UNREAL Paints' DO NOT get it made up by 'SUPER Paints'.

See the image below for variance in colour using different base paints .... uugghh. Just one coat of each and you can see the difference.   

 

Berry Gardens Festival

Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th of October

This is a favourite of ours. We love looking at what other people have achieved in their gardens. As Decorators we focus on the interior of the home & when it comes to the exterior it doesn't extend past a Colour Scheme. So snooping around in the garden is an absolute pleasure - we're never asked what should be done with a retaining wall, duck pond or garden path (thank heavens).   

The cost to see all 8 gardens is $20 {any profit is donated to local charities & other ventures of benefit in the community - after discussion with garden owners}

The 127th Annual Berry Show - woop woop

The 127th Annual Berry Show starts Friday 30th January for 2 days of country fun that includes cattle, horses, food, wine, The Berry Showgirl Competition - Good luck Heather - and soo much more. Click on the orange words above to find out more. It all ends on the Saturday night in a flurry of fireworks.

Below is a peek at 4 photographs that I have entered in the Photography Section 30. By the time you read this the Judges will have scanned their evil eyes over the submissions & awarded 1st or 2nd to the Entrants. I stress I have not entered to receive the $10 or $5 prize money ;) It's just for the fun of it. The relevant sections the photos are entered in are written below each photo. Our 13 year old will be entering the hay stacking competition with a mate - whose younger sister will have to climb the tower of bales!
