Last year we had the opportunity to renovate the main level of our home south of Brisbane. It was a true 90's bonanza when we bought it in 2016: A Teal and Terracotta Mansion.
Some of the most interesting features were:
- Peach tiles and matching corner bath in the main bathroom. Complete with water stains, filthy grout and mould galore.
- Teal laminate benchtops in the kitchen complete with matching kicks! Feature tile circa 1999 Mooloolaba Motel.
-Peeling wooden dresser vanities in both bathrooms
-Brass wardrobes alongside brass light fittings and shower screen edges
-Hot pink rooms, purple rooms, green rooms, blue rooms, a true rainbow house!
-TEAL window frames throughout the entire house (we still have downstairs to tackle!)
-Pastel brushtroke pelmets in the lounge-turned-dungeon downstairs (still intact)
-Matching teal swirly laminate laundry
-Blue painted concrete garage
-Apricot painted decking downstairs and concrete upstairs outside the front door
-Blue ballustrading, teal gutters and a maroon roof. Beautiful with the teal windows and dirty pebblecrete!
-Drummy cracked bone tiles laid in a diamond pattern throughout the main part of the house, with a border around each room to make each space look as small as possible
-Tongue and groove flooring in three bedrooms and the lounge, tiling most other places, damaged parquetry in two bedrooms
