Gumdale House in AWW







Back in 2007, I was very excited when Sharnel & Perry Dollar asked me to help them with the interior of their new family home.  The latest issue of Australian Womans Weekly magazine features their alluring home.  It was lovely to look at the images and remember all the work which went into making it the special place that it is today.

Sharnel was a wonderful client to work with as she was very open to everything I suggested and recommended.  Catherine Shields & Simon Kenny's story certainly captures the ambience of the Dollar's beautiful family home.

Isn't it amazing how classic design and colour stands the test of time. A mere year or two can often render a 'wow' moment obsolete. You have a gift Anna. Well done.

HI Anna,
I'm a long-time blog reader on other side of the country to you - when flicking through AWW I looked at those pictures and thought it looked like your work from what I've seen on this blog - had to smile when I get back to reading the article to discover I was right! A beautiful home and great styling.
