Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Uncategorized


I saw this house the other day at my friend Julia’s blog, Hooked on Houses, and I even told her that I had to show this to my daughter. As soon I did it, my little one was begging me to buy this home. I told her it was too far away, in Australia and that got her even more excited since “The Wiggles” are from there. My 5-year-old daughter’s favorite color is purple. Once you take a look at this house, you’ll understand why she thinks this is the “ultimate” home. But remember: She’s only five!

This house is located in the South Eastern Victoria region of Australia and it was just sold. The asking price? $590,000, which is about $625,000 USD.

When I see a house like this I always imagine the owners to be really fun people. I can’t picture boring people living with so much color! Can you? I can picture opening the door of this house to meet a very cheerful woman that loves to wear colorful outfits and always has a friendly smile on her face.

Please take a look and tell me what you think of this cheerful house. Cool or Fool?


Come On In!

You notice all the patterns, colors and everything in between.

Purple Living room

Oh, so much to look at in this room! Love Zebra? Got it! Love chandeliers? Got It! Love ceiling fans? Got it! Oh, you can have it all, baby! Or can you?

All in One

You know what I’d love to do here? I’d love to go “shopping” in this room! There’s some great elements here that are hard to find. Balance is always the key, my friends!

Color Me Kitchen

This kitchen has great space and so much potential.


How would you design this space?

Whatever You Want it to Be

Tell me one thing, what would you call this room? Family room? Dining room? Whatever it is, it’s a bit too much, once again!

Master Bedroom

What? You didn’t think purple wouldn’t make it to the master, right? You’d be wrong!

Master Bathroom

I actually really like this bathroom. The color should be much lighter and that purple-ish/blue curtain should go and then you’d have a charming bathroom!

So, are your eyes hurting yet or did you actually enjoy it? I simply can’t wait to hear your thoughts! Is this Australian home Cool or Fool?

What are your plans for this weekend? Relaxing is at the top of my list, but who am I kidding, I’ll probably help my husband assemble something for our baby’s nursery. Time is flying! I can’t believe we’re in middle of September already! This remind us to enjoy life and really take the time to spend doing whatever we like and being with the people we care for.

Try to do the same during this weekend. Try to do something you really enjoy and haven’t done for a long time. Try to be with someone you really like but haven’t seen or talked to for a while. Call or be there.

Be happy and safe during this weekend and thank you so much for dropping by every day. I never get that for granted.

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

  1. I am totally speechless!!! I almost fell over in my chair is this a joke? OMG……NO THANK YOU, FOOL ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!

  2. Marie said,

    These people have good taste, but no restraint. They are fearless!! Would love to have them as friends, with their energy and exuberance for life!

  3. Teresa S said,

    This house does have good bones! What is with all the accent wall painting? I think there concept was not bad, they just didn’t execute it well!! It would have been better to paint all the walls and then have the white contrasts.

  4. Plush Rugs said,

    Oh..my…goodness. Fool. That is for sure, which is sad because it has so much potential!

  5. Carmen - Achados de Decoração said,

    oi querida, bom dia!!! tudo bem? Sabe que eu adoro esse “cool or fool”? adoooro! dou umas risadas com isso. Hoje, amei o rosa – claro!!!! beijos

  6. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    The decor is too…. busy!! Too much things everywhere.

    Como esta, amiga?? Quanto tempo. Estou saindo daqui a pouco com o maridao para fazer hike. Outono ja chegou aqui, friozinho…
    Quando o quartinho do nene estiver pronto, mostre fotos para gente.
    Aproveite seu fim de semana tambem.

  7. Julia @ Hooked on Houses said,

    Whoever decorated this house really liked purple, that’s for sure! Have a great weekend, Luciane! 🙂

  8. Marianne {Style For Living} said,

    This one is making my eyes bleed! I think that sums up my opinion pretty well! Wishing you the best weekend. xo

  9. Sandy Nelson (Sandy Nelson Art) said,

    Oh, my! As an artist, this color just goes against everything I know about harmony. Not bad in themselves, but saturated and overwhelming in the space and nothing to balance them…not sure it’s bravery as much as lack of education…they needed a decorator!

  10. Taylor Greenwalt said,

    My mother taught me, if you don’t have any thing nice to say, than don’t say anything at all!……….

  11. Jano said,

    O-o-o-kay…who else thinks Rainbow House exists in a parallel yet opposite universe as Gothic Twilight House? http://www.homebunch.com/cool-or-fool-the-perfect-house-for-twilight-2/

    Looking at both of them is like straddling the line between light and darkness. From the overembellished interiors to the sculptural centerpieces ensconced in both of the driveways, they also share a fool rating with a bonus eerie factor.

  12. kristin said,

    Oooh Luciane, I get goose bumps and not in a good way 🙂 I really can imagine what the owner of the house looks like!! A person with a really big hair and…I’ll say no more. Hope you have an amazing weekend yourself!

    love, Kristin

  13. Karen said,

    all I can say is, look beyond WHAT IS to WHAT CAN BE….I hate the colors and furnishings BUT I know I could create a sanctuary for my family in this home…..

  14. Marie @ Sally Lee by the Sea said,

    FOOL!!!! eh gads ;o)

  15. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    No, please no!

  16. Gloria said,

    Yes, my eyes are hurting! LOL!
    Goes to show: to each his own! I’m sure if those owners saw my house, they would not like it – it would definitely be too small and plain for them!

  17. Victoria Athens said,

    I couldn’t — not even for a minute — not even for a barrel of money — be in this house. I am sorry to say, but it makes me physically ill. No offense, you understand, but no.

  18. Alexandra Brooks said,

    For once I have no words…

  19. SizzleandZoom said,

    I couldn’t live with that much pruple/lavender and the pink is too bright. I didn’t see the chandeliers till I read your note cause the purple is so overwhelming. It’s fool for me. Sorry I wouldn’t even want to have dinner there.

  20. Manderley said,

    Uffff I don’t like nothing… totally fool!
    Have a good week, dear.
