All things FNQ (Far North Qld) were implemented to bring the interiors of this plain old building to life!
The project was completed in time for the height of the pineapple craze! It was as appropriate as it was fun to incorporate quirky tropical, pineapple printed fabrics, pineapple lamps & pineapple ornaments into our interior scheme. Enhanced further by some sensational coconut feature wall paneling, a pendant light resembling an indigenous fishnet, splashes of fresh apple green and deep-sea blues then furnished with a combination of natural-looking fibre elements, tribal hand carved coffee and side tables plus the use of strappy leather curtain tie backs really added some ZING!
The original fit-out was quite stark, so flat plasterboard walls in the living rooms were given a touch of nostalgia by way of introducing VJ panelling reminiscent of a traditional Queenslander. This softened the entire ambience and made the spaces far more inviting!
“We followed through with woven cane baskets as bathroom storage to add to the authenticity,” says Kierah Richards – Senior interior designer at IDI. We truly enjoyed the process of customising the fabric design to perfectly fit the overall scheme on this job too!
