HOME Home is Toni’s little jewel By Lea Parkes

As Toni Burt sat reading her copy of Australian Country, (a contemporary country lifestyle magazine), she found herself thinking, my house is as nice as the ones featured in these pages. So having undertaken a significant renovation of her Glass House Mountains property when she moved in five years ago, she decided to send the magazine editor an email with some photos of her home that she is clearly very proud off. Apparently the editor agreed entirely with Toni and contacted her back arranging for a journalist and a photographer to come out to see her, so they could feature the property in their magazine. While Toni is a university qualified Interior Designer the look and feel of the property clearly has been an act of love and features

a lot of her own personal style. This is the seventh property that Toni has renovated, however previously the properties were in the city and had a stronger contemporary feel to them. Toni describes her Glass House property as her own version of Shabby Chic and has named it Le Petite Bijou (which means the little jewel in French). The whole renovation took only six week’s including all of the external painting. Toni explained that working in a project management role in corporate and commercial design meant that she just applied her professional skills to her

Original bedroom own property and had mapped out the project into four hour blocks. After seeing the before and after photos you can see that the whole house has been transformed from a well maintained and loved home, all be it one that’s interior was quite dated and included a 1950s style pale pink kitchen and bathroom, with red polyester carpet. While Toni has kept some of the original timber walls, she chose to freshen up the interior by painting the majority of the walls a creamy white. This alone made a massive visual change to the house without all of the rest of the refitting, and remodelling rooms she undertook to improve its functionality. Toni kept herself on a tight budget, doing the tasks she could herself and also by purchasing many interesting decorating pieces and furniture

New bedroom now on eBay or in second hand shops. She then tweaked and customised them to her tastes, and the overall effect is just amazing. Toni’s advice to anyone wanting to undertake a significant renovation to ensure things run smoothly time and budget wise is careful planning. 1. You need to talk to the trades people and understand what order they need to be booked in. 2. Have everything costed out in advance so you know exactly what the project will cost you. 3. Be organised, Tony purchased all of the materials for the project in the 12 or so months before the work began. 4. If you haven’t got the skills to project manage yourself, make sure you get one of the tradespeople to take on this role.

Richard Giles runs the Home & Health Consultancy Feng Shui advice service. Ring and ask about an assessment of your house or workplace using the Feng Shui system. In the 9th century AD two Chinese scholars wrote down the first systematic approach to working with landscape features using the phrase Feng Shui, literally meaning ‘wind and water’ two common elements making up any landscape. Richard was active in the environment movement for two decades and moved to study Feng Shui in 1998/99 in Australia and China. He’s done further studies in recent years including Geomancy (Earth dowsing). He uses compass, number cycles, birth dates and rules of arrangement to design the best personal situation for you. Most consultations run for around five hours on site and he then takes details back to prepare a full written report. He needs birth dates, the age of the house and building floor plans. Richard also uses the dowsing art, Geomancy to examine earth energies on site. Phone Richard on 5435 0158 and have a chat about what he can do for your home and land. Email - ricgiles@powerup.com.au or check out www.richardgiles.info He also publishes a 30 page guide book ‘Your Personal Guide to Feng Shui: How To Make Your Home Work More Harmoniously for You’ ($19.00 inc postage and handling – call Richard to make your order).
