Panorama Home

Panorama Crescent encapsulates a respectful transformation of a traditional family home into a contemporary oasis. After working with the client on a number of previous projects, Tarlie B Designs was engaged to assist them achieve their desired vision for this property, beginning from the outside and then expanding to its interior.

The typical two-storey Queensland residence alludes to its revitalised state from the moment you approach it. The exterior of the home is a combination of exposed brickwork and weatherboard, a contrast offset by the timber being painted a deep yet bright indigo blue, and the garage door, horizontal outdoor screens and balustrades coated in crisp white. It feels at one with the surrounding landscape, juxtaposed against surrounding bushland and open skies. Through this thoughtful introduction of colour, Tarlie has created an uplifting and private facade that gives the home personality and blends with the existing aluminium window frames, while simultaneously disguising essential plumbing pipes.

Once the outside of the home was complete the client was eager to restyle the lower level indoors, which included their kitchen, dining area, lounge room, media room and staircase. Tarlie was committed to bringing a beige and outdated interior into the present.

Inside, the space is open plan, featuring an elevated ceiling with wooden beams and incredible views across the escarpment. To accentuate the home’s immediate connection to the outdoors, Tarlie chose a palette that responded to the exterior of the home. The same indigo blue came to adorn the wall of the stairwell, including rear panels of the shelving unit below the stairs. The dining room is softened by a feature wallpaper of moss green and off white horizontal stripes, also used in the media room, making both spaces feel rich with character. Tones of moss green, tan, brass and deep blue continue throughout in considered accents, artworks and furnishings, making for a cohesive transition between each area.  

The existing kitchen tones were accentuated with the newly finished white balustrades, cabinetry and remaining walls which all take advantage of abundant natural light while contrasting with the wooden beams across the ceiling.

Light is also captured by a feature light piece over the dining table and well placed mirrors. Having sourced all of the furniture for the level, Tarlie nurtured warmth through comfortable, tactile fabrications against the original honey coloured timber floorboards. From the outside in, Panorama Crescent is a calm, tranquil home that rightfully honours its original bones.
