Through Veranda, Sharyn’s aim is to
give her loyal clients the tools to create
eclectic, inviting and beautiful spaces,
both inside and out. With hundreds of
suppliers and a team of helpful staff, as
well as a design consultant on hand,
she’s well placed to do so.
“Some people come in and they just
want to chat. A lot of people just want
advice on placement: for instance, ‘I’ve got
two old benches, should I get rid of them?
Which way should I put my table? Do I
need another flower in this floral display?’
“Others will come in with a picture
from a magazine and ask if I can help them
replicate that look,” she continues.
“With more than 700 suppliers I can
usually find what they want, and if I can’t
find it then I can get it made.” Inspired by
her clients, Sharyn recently began working
on Veranda’s exclusive range. “The range
features many key pieces that have been
difficult to obtain in Perth,” she explains.
“After many years of requests from clients
I have taken on design and am looking at
wholesaling the range. This will enable the
West Australian market to have access to
the renowned Veranda look.”
From chandeliers to water features,
faux flowers to tea sets, Veranda is a
treasure trove of home and garden wares
all stocked on one proviso: that Sharyn
herself loves them.
“I always say I won’t buy something
unless I like it. I don’t care how popular
something is. I have agents coming in
and telling me I need to stock something
because they’re selling lots of them, and
I’ll say no, simply because I don’t think
