A monthly series from local Melbourne architect, Barbara Yerondais, sharing 5 of her favourite things.
I’ve always enjoyed seeing other people’s favourite things, it gives me an idea of who they are and what type of design style they’re attracted to. I know I could get lost for hours and hours just browsing through photos of products and ideas. But there’s something always missing from just looking at an image; it’s the story of WHY someone likes things. Is it the colour, the texture, the shape? Is the the light, or perhaps even the lack of light?
It’s all of these elements (and so much more) that I consider when I’m meeting with a client for the first time. They become like clues that will help me piece together exactly what clients want and need from the project I’m designing for them.
This week as I thought about how clients share with me the ideas they love and the things they like, I decided it would be great to share some of my favourite things so you can see my where my design influences start and get to know some of my quirks.
Not only does my passion lie in designing and improving personalized spaces for my clients, but just like any other woman, I love to ‘window shop’! realestate.com.au is my one stop shop for a lot of potential developments, as well as information I require for my clients… And lets face it, once the work is over, I cant help myself to just have a browse
Lump Lazer Cut Metal Screens
There is nothing more exciting than after the design and build process, we can get to the decorating! Decorating a house or space is the opportunity to add your own personality, and one thing I absolutely love are the Lump Lazer Cut Metal Screens, they always add a nice touch to any space.

I am certain any person you could ask would agree, when something works… it works! That’s why we choose colorbond roofing for all of our projects, and we are yet to be dissatisfied with the results.

Blundstone Steelecap Boots
In my industry, presentation is key, and with that I not only pride myself in my work but also my personal presentation. But unfortunately, like everything, sometimes safety comes first. When going on site I need to make sure I always put safety first, and although it may not be the most fashionable, Blundstone Steelecap Boots are definitely the most comfortable!
Even though sometimes I need a break and to get away, work unfortunately doesn’t stop for a ‘beach day’, but thank god for my iPad, allowing me to work from anywhere on the go. It’s even there to be a nice little escape from the work day and to just scroll blankly through my apps.
