When you want to build a coastal home, but don’t live anywhere near the coast, it can be a bit challenging. But that’s where a pool can be your saviour. Not only will it keep you cool and provide hours of fun for the family, but it can also give you your very own water views!Read More

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
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

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
But wait, there’s more! We love that you’re such an inquisitive bunch, the questions keep on rolling in, so here I go again…Read More
So, we were chatting the other day and Bonnie went and dropped the BIG question. What’s my favourite room in her dream home? That’s a pretty tough one… like who’s your favourite child or what’s your favourite meal. Ask me next week and I’m sure my answer will be different to today! Hang on, make it pizza, cold pizza… even it’s bad it’s good.Read More
It seems that our Three Birds Gang have a bit of a thing for bar stools! Remember the timber and black ‘tractor stools’ we used in House 4? Bonnie picked them because the black legs complemented the black knobs and the tap in the kitchen. We had no idea that they’d become the most asked about furniture we’d used - EVER!
And then you guys nearly broke the internet, selling out Ziggy stools like the ones Bonnie used in her dream home, overnight! They’re the ones at the main island bench… not to be confused with the three other styles of bar stools Bon chose for her dream home! #nothingbyhalvesRead More
Artwork is such a personal choice. What floats one person’s boat isn’t always the next person’s cup of tea #whitewithoneplease. That said, I for one, love Bon’s choices of artwork in her dream home. True to her eclectic style she’s chosen different artists and a range styles but what they’ve got in common is that they all look amazing on those big white walls #bonniesdreamgallery #moveoverMOMARead More
I’ve always had a soft spot for the coast. Some of my fondest memories are of family holidays spent at the beach. And there’s no denying that those times had a big impact on my inspiration for my dream home. Even way back then I remember looking at all the big, white, coastal homes and thinking they were so beautiful. My dream home was always going to be white weatherboard, with palm trees, water glimpses and casual furnishings with pops of luxe.Read More
Choosing the colour scheme for your home’s exterior can be really quite daunting. Remember that your front façade is the first thing people see so it should set the vibe for the entire home. No pressure guys, but it could be the make or break of your whole vision! #somuchpressure!Read More
Landscaping’s always last on the long list of reno ‘to dos’ so it often bears the brunt of any budget blowouts. But there’s nothing worse than a gorgeous house with a ghastly garden. Or perhaps there is… a mud pit in the front yard ready for the kids to traipse through your newly renovated house 😱#cleanfreaksnightmareRead More
When it came to the exterior of Bonnie’s dream home, there were no prizes for guessing what material she was going to choose. She always only had #hearteyes for weatherboard. She’s dreamed about a weatherboard house for ever and this was her chance to bring her dreams to life.Read More
I have a confession to make, I have a crush on Bonnie’s roof. Don’t get me wrong, I’m really happy with my own roof and we have a strong relationship, but there’s no denying Bon’s new roof has caught my eye and knocked my socks off!Read More
