Bec and her family have moved to China, where her husband works as a school principal. They were provided with an apartment as accommodation, but with limited choice on furniture and decor. The beige, beige and more beige was doing Bec’s head in (understandably) so she asked me for some help. (more…)
Well friends, it’s finally here. I have officially launched my styling and design business, New Henry Design. It’s been a while in the making, and somehow, all of the things I love and love to do, now make sense!
So far, I’ve got a few prints in the shop, (more to come!) and have artwork on exhibition and for sale, at a favourite little bar called The Scratch, in Brisbane. I am also working alongside an excellent property styling company called Signature Property Styling. This is the early stages of what I know will be an exciting adventure in the world of interiors and styling. I have many ideas, plans, and dreams that I am determined to get into, I feel like this is just the beginning, and would love you to join me on the journey.
Please like my FB page, and follow on instagram (new_henry_design), check out the website, and share it if you feel like it.
I love all of this. I so want to live in a beautiful inner city space, with some sort of a connection with the outdoors, brick and timber, big windows and gas cooking, storage abundant and close to all the things I love…city, business, ideas, culture, creativity, entrepreneurs, history, progress…. I don’t care for too much space. It requires more effort to maintain, and less interaction with surroundings. Just well designed and thought through, with enough space to play, cook, create, and have friends enjoy it too.
Repurposed and renovated buildings are some of my favourite streetscapes to look upon. To me, there is not much more exciting than giving new meaning and life to unexpected spaces around a city. In Brisbane, the Teneriffe Woolstore Apartments are a beautiful example of this. With due respect and highlight to history, blending modern architecture into the the authentic features of the buildings, Teneriffe is one of the most sought after areas to live in Brisbane. (more…)
I have been meaning to add more of the work I did last semester on this apartment project. Please find my materials board and why I’ve chosen some of the selections. I’ve also included my attempts to recreate some of the materials in the rendered views of the project in REVIT, although this program is fantastic, it was difficult to communicate how you really want the rooms to look and feel.

One of my dreams is to turn a beautiful old church building into my home. There are a couple of churches around Brisbane I have my eye on. The example in this article just encourages this dream even more! I love the idea of reusing buildings and turning them into something unexpected.
I would LOVE a new bed. I’ve had a wrought iron 4 poster bed with lovely flowing mosquito nets for way too long. I’m bored with it. Plus we are downsizing, so a new room is likely to be quite small. A four poster bed of any calibre overfills a room with regular ceiling height, and is a little bit dangerous when you’ve got a ceiling fan in there! I am also bored (but more annoyed) at having loads of stuff under our bed. There are blankets, tools, boxes of stationery all hanging out, and it is unsightly and downright gross. I’m done with that friends! So I’ve put together a collection of my favourite bed finds so far, with big dreams of obtaining something from this list sometime very soon, and decluttering for our new space. (more…)
