In 2010, building works began on Mackay’s Caneland Central Shopping Centre to increase the size and number of shops to include MYER. As a result of these extension works, Flowers from Lisa’s and a number of other shops were asked to relocate. Formerly a shop with a floor, walls and ceiling, the challenge was to design a kiosk style shop. Coldroom storage was arranged elsewhere in the shopping centre and a new design was devised. This included lockable gates’ made from a decorative lattice. These gates gave security as well as the whimisical feeling of walking into a beautiful garden full of flowers.
2010 was the year of shopfitting for Flowers from Lisa’s. Not long after the new shop in Canelands was built, Lisa’s shop at Mt Pleasant was refurbished. Out with the old and in with the new. We used the same lattice panel from the Canelands shop and the walls were painted black to bring out the colour in the flowers. The black walls create the illusion that the shop is bigger. The counter was re-laminated and a pink lightbox similar to the Caneland shop was installed. New cantilevered timber shelves and plywood boxes completed the new look.

Our family purchased this home at the end of 1990 in the middle of one of Mackay’s most extreme wet seasons. Ever since then, we’ve been dreaming of renovating and expanding. We really wanted more space and a bigger deck. Every home in Mackay and North Queensland should have a great covered outdoor space.
We had lots of different ideas about how to achieve the most efficient layout and the most appealing look but in the end, it was the restricted budget that informed the final decision.
Before the Renovations began, the plans were drawn up, a builder was appointed and building approvals achieved. The next step was to start demolition works.
The character of the 1950s kitchen has been retained. And the lino has been removed to reveal beautiful Mackay Cedar timber floors under. We are very excited about this although the patterned lino floor is making a bit of a comeback right now!
