    Description

    Hi my name's Tanja, I live alone and I have a four bedroomed house with garden and pool on the Gold Coast. The house is very central with a walk to the beach and the shops, HOTA, the art centre and all that the Gold Coast has to offer.

    I recently moved back in to my house having been away for the past 7 years, primarily sailing in the Caribbean.

    The house was rented out and was somewhat neglected, but it is starting to look good and happy again :)

    I am now looking for some help to create a beautiful, tranquil "zenified" outside area and a wonderfully happy, peaceful environment inside

    I speak 5 languages and have traveled extensively myself.
    it would be good to meet and exchange experiences and ideas.

    Hi!

    My name's Tanja, I live alone and I have a four bedroomed house with garden and pool on the Gold Coast.
    My home is very central with a walk to the beach and the shops, HOTA (The home of the arts) and all that the Gold Coast has to offer.

    I recently moved back having been away for the past 7 years, primarily sailing in the Caribbean.

    The house was rented out and was somewhat neglected, but I am happy to say that it is starting to look good again :) I have nearly completed painting it internally and now am going to start on the outside.

    I am now looking for some help in creating a beautiful, tranquil "zenified" house inside and out- a wonderfully happy, peaceful environment

    outside I am looking to
    create a beautiful serene zen area - a relaxation/meditation/yoga/reading area
    further the vegetable garden
    reestablish my water feature
    modify my shed
    move a fence
    add some fly screens
    paint some areas - back wall, window sills, and possibly the zen area and shed

    Within the house I am looking for ideas and help on how to modify and make the rooms more comfortable, inviting, calm, relaxed; whether that be by rearranging furniture or in redesigning,
    I am also looking at adding an additional bathroom and toilet

    I also need some help with computers, setting up play lists and organising files and photos etc

    Your contributed help, ideas, feedback to these project are welcomed.

    I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to my home
