The first episode featuring The Veronicas has gone live, providing a glimpse into their New York loft-style apartment in one of Brisbane’s heritage listed buildings built in 1930.
The property features 12-foot ceilings, large windows, hard wood floors, an enclosed balcony and a sunken master bedroom, plus a rooftop terrace with views of the city’s iconic Storey Bridge.
Having grown up in Brisbane, Jess and Lisa love the feeling of coming ‘home’ after long stints touring around the world. They’ve styled their apartment as a sanctuary to relax and unwind in – although it has also seen some crazy parties along the way.
Jess says, “We’ve had some wild birthday parties, and elegant dinner parties! We also wrote and recorded a lot of our second and third album here.
“We’ve spent time focused on interior design, turning it into our bohemian creative cave. I’d describe our decorating style as temple in India meets warehouse in London.”
A true musician’s den, the apartment is decorated with vintage rock posters and houses the girls’ grandmother’s record player and piano, plus an incredible vinyl collection featuring everything from Pink Floyd and KD Lang to Aussie icons Kylie Minogue and John Farnham.
Lisa adds, “It has the charm of New York’s East Village and the convenience of inner city living. The Valley has a great music scene, night life and is a multicultural food hub.”
