With the onset of our latest display home soon to opening in Geelong, we are excited to celebrate our collaboration with local Torquay artist and proud Boutique home owner Jacqui O’Keefe whose artwork will be showcased in the new display.

Jacqui is a proud owner of art business Inkah Art as well as a Boutique Homes Barcelona 28, you can see photos of her beautiful home on Instagram paired with her art at @inkahartgallery

Inspired and mesmerised by her art, we just knew we had to collaborate and showcase her pieces.

We caught up with Jacqui to talk creativity, inspirations and why Boutique was ‘The One’.

Inspired predominantly by the natural environment, Jacqui draws inspiration from ‘stunning aerial views of the coastline, the movement and colour of the ocean and beautiful sunsets.’

‘Inspiration is abundant when you live on the surf coast’ she said.

Interior design and homes go hand in-hand, with artwork breathing life and character into any home.

To assist you in choosing the correct style of artwork for your home space, Jacqui offers a few great tips to assist in the decision-making process.

‘Artwork is the focal point of the room and will always draw eyes to it,’ she says.  

‘So it is important to choose something you really love as it's going to be something you look at every day.’

‘I would start by choosing artwork you fall in love with and building the room around it rather than the other way around.’

Appropriate sizing of the art is also something Jacqui says to keep in mind.

‘When choosing pieces keep in mind the dimensions and also the finish or type of art and consider where it's being hung,

‘For example, pieces framed behind glass or finished with resin can be quite reflective so if the wall gets a lot of direct sunlight then choosing a canvas piece might be more appropriate for the space’ she advises.

When asked about her decision to build with Boutique Homes Jacqui attracted to a few of the Boutique homes and ultimately fell in love with the floor plan of the Barcelona.

‘The quality finish of the homes is something that stood out, and Boutique also came out on top when it came to value for money as there was definitely more standard inclusions than with other builders’.
