For the love of a Queenslander

View back onto my Queenslander

Just putting it out there; I love to stage a Queenslander. I would be a happy home stager indeed if I could specialise in staging this fabulous type of house.

I grew up in a modern house, as did my husband but we’ve spent our married life in period properties – firstly in London and now in Brisbane, Australia.  When we moved to Brisbane 8 years ago it was my husband’s dream to live in a Queenslander on acreage complete with ride on mower and to drive a Landcruiser. Living the dream!!

A Queenslander is an often sprawling wooden house with a pitched iron roof,  wide covered verandahs and beautiful internal features such as lead light windows and breeze ways. A great commentary on the Queenslander can be found here – you may even decide to build one!

When I stage a house my aim is to highlight its features. This is a joy to do in a Queenslander as there are so many to choose from – timber floors,  high ceilings, lovely verandahs, french doors – the list goes on. A Queenslander can also ‘take’ a variety of staging styles from traditional to colonial/tropical to more modern.

Here are some of my favourite Queenslanders that I’ve had the pleasure of staging.
