This design job was delivered and installed in early May 2022. When I say it was a big job, I am not joking.. 4 truck loads of furniture, 5 team members, and some enthusiastic homeowners = I am sure you will agree, one incredible result!!!
Keen to know more???
These proud homeowners came to Make Your House A Home for help furnishing their new home. It is their dream home and has amazing fixtures and fittings, but being so big, they were struggling with how to furnish it. They purchased the Couture for Living Furniture Package and entrusted us to help them.
I was brimming with ideas from the moment I entered their gorgeous home... I took a video of all the spaces, took some samples of the flooring to reference, and set to work. About the only request they had was for some colour, they had no particular colour/s in mind, so I took inspiration from the gorgeous artwork they already own.
We met at our showroom, where I ran them through the ideas, presented them with a mood board (pictured above) showed them samples of the suggested pieces, swatches of the fabrics (pictured above) and showed them on the floorplan the scale of everything. They were excited, loved it all, and said yes to everything!!! - dream clients, I know!!
Fast forward six months, and we were ready to deliver. The big furniture pieces were Australian-made, so due to their size, we had them delivered directly to the site on the day of delivery. A truck full of sofas direct from Molmic in Melbourne, a truck full of timber furniture direct from our timber manufacturer in Central Victoria, and two truckloads from Bendigo. To set the scene, here are some photos:

The empty entry area is waiting to come alive, and the main bedroom is prepared for the new custom bedroom suite.
Our clients have a motorised bed so the new upholstered bed made by our upholstery team, Furnish had to be slightly modified so the mechanics of the bed are completely concealed.
Fast forward a few hours and here are the after photos: featuring Molmic Dempsey modular Timber Co dining table with Loren dining chairs GlobeWest Tully coffee table, GlobeWest Hilton bar stools and Soma floor lamp

Some casual photos of the billiard room area with us all having a well-earned beverage after a huge day. Featuring Molmic Aston sofa Furnish ottoman Timber Co custom floating TV unitNotice how we have used the existing artwork in this room and displayed on the custom 4m long floating tv unit some artefacts and collectibles the owners already had.
A close-up of some of the custom furniture: We used American Oak for all the timber pieces to tie back to the existing timber top on the kitchen raised bar, which is also American Oak. The legs of the dining chairs were stained black to tie back to the legs on the custom 4m x 1.5m dining table (yes, it is a 16-seater). There are going to be some great dinner parties here!
We are still not finished though. The outdoor furniture for the Pool Pavilion is yet to come. It is expected to arrive later in the year, so I will post more pictures then.
New outdoor sofas, rug, coffee tables and cushions still to arrive..

Here is what the clients from this particular home have to say about the service:
"We were absolutely thrilled with the end result of our furniture. We still can’t believe it is our home. Lisa and her team at Make Your House A Home were outstanding from the very beginning. MYHAH was reliable, very prompt with responding to any communication and very excited about our job and clearly approached it like it was their own home. Lisa is amazing and inspiring to work with and we learnt so many little tips along the way. We would have stuck with safe choices but Lisa encouraged us to think outside the square and WOW. what a result. We highly recommend this business to anyone who is buying one piece of furniture or home decor to fitting out a whole house." - Deb & Todd
