Powell St, South Yarra

Jun 13, 2015

Recently sold at Auction, the owners of this property in the heart of South Yarra are longstanding clients of South Yarra Painting. Over a period of several years, the property has had several facelifts to optimise the living conditions of a growing family. We were contracted to paint the entire interior and exterior during this time.

The clients of this magnificent double storey Victorian near the Botanical Gardens were looking to restore their four verandah decks, windows and balustrade’s on the North and East Elevations before Christmas with plans to entertain over summer. We managed to survive the pre Christmas heatwave and finish the works as scheduled on Christmas Eve. Below are before and after shots of the rear North facing decks finished in Intergrain Merbau.

We have just completed the exterior of this property in this beautiful tree lined street in Malvern East, with the interior soon to follow in mid 2015. Many of the homes in the area are slowly being transformed from the creams and greens of the 1990’s into modern contemporary colours that will last well int the next decade. The body of the home was painted in Dulux Ecru Quarter and all the trims in Resene Masala. Very happy clients!

After recently completing another property in arguably the most sought after street in Melbourne, the heritage listed St Vincents Place, we were engaged to transform this unique property on the southern side.

Independent colour consultant, Julie Mirabile selected Resene Half Craigeburn for the main body of the house and Resene Friar Grey for the trims. A miraculous improvement and an extremely happy client!

Here are some photos of the completed project…..

Another weatherboard!…this time in a beautiful tree-lined street in Camberwell. This freestanding home on a steep allotment has recently had an extension to the rear of the house and most of the weatherboards replaced. The builders, Prolifica Building Group engaged us to paint the whole exterior.

The clients have engaged a color consultant from Dulux and the painting is currently nearing completion.

This home was recently purchased by a young family with a little 2 year old girl. Looking for more space after selling their renovated single fronted Victorian in Balaclava, they found this five bedroom home in Grant Street. We were contracted the paint the whole interior and exterior. Below are a couple of photos of both the interior and exterior before painting started.

The previous owners hadn’t painted in years and the house colors seemed very outdated. Clearly it was in need of some fresh, contemporary colors. The job took a total of six weeks for four painters.

Once again in consultation with independent interior designer, Julie Mirabile, the clients chose the following colors:

Roof, Gutters, Facia – #ColourbondWallaby finished in #Dulux Weathershield Semi Gloss
Low Facia/Bargeboards/Posts/Railings – Dulux Hasst finished in Dulux Weathershield Semi Gloss
Weatherboards/Plinths/Picket Fence/Front Fence – Dulux Hasst finished in Dulux Weathershield Low Sheen
Windows – Dulux Natural White finished in Dulux Weathershield Semi Gloss
Fretwork – Dulux Natural White finished in Dulux Super Enamel High Gloss
Front Door – Dulux Black finished in Dulux Super Enamel High Gloss
Decking – Intergrain Merbau finished in Ultra Deck

All Ceilings – Dulux Vivid White finished in Dulux Professional Ceiling Flat
All Walls – Dulux Natural White finished in Dulux Wash & Wear Low Sheen Acrylic
All Woodwork – Dulux Natural White 1/2 strength finished in Dulux Aqua Enamel Semi Gloss

More and more clients are choosing to finish their woodwork in #AquaEnamel (aka water based enamel paints). From an applicator POV, they are easy to apply, quick drying and little or no #VOC’s. From a client’s perspective, they can live in their #homes comfortably without fumes and the paint does not ‘yellow’ like conventional oil based enamels.

Equally one of the largest residential re-paints we have undertaken, this property in arguably the most sought after street in Melbourne, the heritage listed St Vincents Place.

Initially contracted by interior design firm, Corn & Celeste, we painted the entire three level residence throughout December and January. The clients were overseas on business keeping our team extremely busy throughout the holiday period.

The interior colours selected by independent colour consultant, Julie Mirabile were: Resene Half Pearl Lusta for the Ceilings, Resense Pearl Lusta for the Walls and Resense Pearl Lustre 150% for all the woodwork.

Here are some photos of the completed project.

What a transformation and contemporary look for a Victorian single fronted freestanding with modern extension at the rear in one of Armadale’s most sought after locations.

The client, an architect was very clear on his colour choices and instructions.

With some difficult to reach areas, we had to hire a 34ft knuckle boom to access these surfaces safely.

The previously unpainted render clad walls had a 3 coat application using a sealer undercoat and then 2 coats of Dulux AcraShield Matt in Dulux Night Sky/Black. All the trims were painted in Dulux Natural White.
