Before we got our hands on this little ugly duckling of a house, she could only dream of squeezing a second bathroom into her 114sqm floor plan. But by punching out the side wall of the master suite, we managed to sneak in the perfect little ensuite. It may be small in size but it’s super pretty and really practical.Read More
Is it a boudoir or a bedroom? Whatever it is she's definitely got her fancy pants on!
Episode 2 takes the original dining and sun room turning them into a master suite retreat! We also add a mini extension off the side of the house giving us a few extra metres to build an exclusive little deck and ensuite with huge floor-to-ceiling window! And for a bit of added privacy, Bon has something up her sleeve that she's dying to show you #cool #icanseeyou #youcantseeme.

You’ll hear us bang on about just how much of an eyesore our latest house was. It legit needed a total overhaul to bring it into the 21st century! But, without many redeeming features, we knew we needed to go big on adding some charm.Read More

Renovating without a clear vision is like plonking yourself down in the swivel chair of a new hairdresser and saying, ‘Do whatever you want.’ Chances are you’ll spend a fortune, be forced to live with something you don’t want (bangs, anyone?) and it will all end in tears.
We start every renovation by creating a vision board. A vision board is just a glorified mood board, right? Wrong! It’s much more than that.Read More
Setting yourself up for a successful reno is all about how you manage the process. And hiring the right people for your reno is SO essential – it’s the magic that enables us to complete our renos quickly. Believe me when I tell you it’s a hell of a lot easier to spend extra time during the hiring process to find the right person than it is to get the wrong person to do a good jobRead More

We just can’t go past cushion queen Grace Garrett’s gorgeous designs when we’re styling our renovation projects. They’re like individual pieces of art on your sofa. I sat down with Grace to get the low-down on her talent with textiles.Read More
If you’re anything like me, browsing houses online is a favourite pastime, but there’s just something special about seeing a home in the flesh #realdeal #loveanopenhome
So, when I suggested to Bon that we invite our Reno School students over to her #moderncoastalbarn for a look-see, she hesitated …. And then jumped at the idea.
We had an overwhelming response and could hardly believe our eyes when we scanned the guest list to find we had students flying in from New Zealand, Perth, Melbourne, Far North Queensland, and …. even Singapore! Yep, just a 6,500km journey to view our latest project #commitment #humbled #loveourrenoschoolersRead More
Many of us are apprehensive about adding ethnic furniture to our space, for fear of things ending up too ‘boho’. In the latest Three Birds renovation, Bonnie shows us how adding some ethnic pieces, in a neutral palette, can take a room to the next level, and compliment a range of décor styles, especially her amazing ‘coastal barn’ home.Read More
The recent school holidays have got me thinking about my perfect holiday with the family. As lovely as a hotel can be #nocookingforme, with a brood as big as mine I prefer staying at a holiday home. Own it or rent it, you get plenty of space for the kids to run around and some places, like the Beach Shack, even let you take your pets!Read More
In a Three Birds Facebook first, Lana took to Facebook Live with one of our suppliers, Nick Walker, CEO of National Tiles.
Nick dropped into Lana’s forever home #santoriniinsydney for a chat about all things tiles. And yes, he had to take his shoes off and do the interview in his socks! #noshoepolicy #cleanfreak
Bonnie used National Tiles products throughout her dream home to create some amazing tile features. Nick’s faves are Bon’s dog bath and the curved ceiling in the main bathroom #greattasteRead More

We’re often asked for our best reno hacks, so here are a couple of really easy peasy lemon squeezy ones that you can finish in one weekend.Read More
Imagine a kitchen which is the complete opposite of Bonnie's kitchen? What would it look like? Small, black-on-black and with no room for an island bench perhaps? BINGO! That's exactly the kitchen we built at The River Shack reno. Despite it's small size, we used every trick in the book to make it as functional as possible and packed with personality. We wanted this kitchen to have a sleek and modern look, so stained the timber veneer cabinets black and teamed it with Vanilla Noir Caesarstone. And our favourite element of the whole kitchen is not what you'd expect - a piece of artwork which is as an eclectic combo of masculine and feminine energy topped off with a strong dose of cabin fever. A car burn-out never looked so pretty. #grittyprettyRead More
Wanna know a magic trick that will totally transform your home on a budget? I can’t promise you’ll be pulling a white rabbit out of a hat, but definitely a white house. Or a grey one, or black… #heypresto #takeyourpickRead More
Bonnie’s dream home is in the bushy Hills District of Sydney and while this means a gorgeous leafy setting, it also means a few extra building challenges. As if building a forever home of mammoth scale isn’t enough of a task, part of Bonnie’s site is a BAL 40 rated bush fire zone. And with that comes a long list of extra boxes to tick to satisfy council requirements.Read More
