"We had been searching for the right antique bed for many years, luckily enough we found ours with Wallrocks. Being located interstate, Wallrocks kept an open and involved line of communication as they undertook the restoration and reupholstery process. We are very pleased with the full package that Wallrocks provided, and have complete satisfaction with our purchase. We consider our experience with Wallrocks to be first class. "

"My husband and I have been dealing with Jess and Nick Wallrock for the past 2 years. Their insight and expertise of all antiques is amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable and passionate and have no trouble sourcing items from all over the world. I have full confidence in all the items we have purchased for our home and I fully trust and respect their expertise. Wallrock's is like an Aladdins Cave that is my one stop shop for all things wonderful and beautiful They are the best antique dealers in Queensland hands down and I have no hesitation in any item that I purchase from them. We Hope to have a long ongoing association with them for many years to come. I love and value all the little treasures that I've brought from Wallrock's and look forward to acquiring many more. "

""Hello Jessica I just wanted to thank you ……I love the bed! It has surpassed all expectations. I am amazed at how beautiful it is. Please pass on this note to any who are considering buying an antique through “Wallrocks” It is encouraging to find people that can combine passion with their work and this was evident from the first time I stepped through the door at Wallrocks. Nick Wallrock’s qualifications and experience in sourcing antiques is demonstrated in the simple act of displaying the antiques in their natural un-restored state. Most insightful, as it allowed me to see the piece I intended to buy for what it truly is. Seeing restoration take place on site further bolstered my approval that the piece I bought would be given the respect it deserved. Lynden and Peter are truly gifted restorers as evident in the finished piece. I enjoyed talking with them and seeing their restoration work in progress. Visualising the finished piece in my home was an easy step to take with the assistance of Jessica Wallrock (Nick’s daughter). Jessica’s has a natural ability with style and taste. Jessica imparted to me that antiques are not only beautiful but also useful and easily incorporated into the modern home. I hope that your experience with “Wallrocks” is as rewarding as mine. To Jessica, Nick and everyone at Wallrocks…..Thank You. I look forward to dealing with you in the future.""

"Hi Jessica I have been meaning to drop you an email to thank both yourself and Nick for all your help with the bed and bedside tables. It has been a pleasure dealing with you both and I am just so thrilled with the bed and the tables. They both complement each other so well, I couldn't be more pleased. The restoration of all the items looks amazing and Nick's instructions for assembly were very helpful. It now feels like we are staying in a luxury hotel every night! I would have no hesitation in purchasing items through you again or in recommending you to friends. I am just so pleased with the purchase. I admit that I was somewhat apprehensive making such a large purchase on an item I had only seen on your website and I hoped it looked every bit as good in real life (it did!), especially given I hadn't told my husband about it! Thankfully he loved it when I did the big reveal. The photos were fantastic and your professionalism set me at ease. "

Creating a French Provincial Inspired Bedroom

French Provincial Beds

Never out of out of fashion, always elegant and classic. The French Provincial bedroom is one that rarely falls out of favour. For those of us led by classic and elegant design, there is not better way to go.  The relaxed design of French Provincial decorating is perfect for the Australian lifestyle. With it’s warmth and softness, this particular look is perfect for the bedroom. Read our suggestions for how to create that exquisite French Provincial charm.

FRENCH PROVINCIAL COLOURS

french-provincial-bedsWhen selecting colours, think gentle tones that bring a warmth & comfort. Whites are always an excellent choice, but rather than a stark, bright white, lean more towards the creamy tones like ivory or ecru.

When introducing other colours to the palette, take inspiration from nature – soft sage green, pale yellow, lavender, misty grey & dusky pink are all in keeping with that calming, elegant, French Provincial feel. Don’t be afraid of adding little pops of natural colour.

FRENCH PROVINCIAL FABRICSfrench-provincial-beds

Whilst we suggest keeping the colour palette fairly subdued, the French Provincial bedroom is certainly not dull. Layering fabrics with a variety of decadent textures brings added interest, and also assists in creating a room that is both comfortable & elegant.

When selecting textiles, turn to luxurious natural fibres such as linen and cotton – and don’t forget the finishing touches, such as a sumptuous woollen knitted throw for the end of the bed, and scatter cushions with a hint of pattern or texture.
