Jonathan VDK I can guarantee Katie won't like this. It's too woody.
1) The woody-ness is made more obvious because it's in massive contrast to the cold, white, hard floor (Natural timbers are "soft and warm"). So it's a bit bleurgh.
2) If you're going for this staunch traditional look, don't use a modern light, stool, tap fittings etc. It looks cheap.
3) Too Natural for Katie. The wood would have to have a super light stain on it, or painted. - stuart_mudd
Located high on a hill overlooking Brisbane city, the View House is a ambitious and bold extension to a pre-war cottage. Barely visible from the street, the extension captures the spectacular view from all three levels and in parts, from the cottage itself. The cottage has been meticulously restored, maintaining the period features whilst providing a hint of the contemporary behind.
