Earthy, Raw & Sophisticated

Those three words came to mind when I saw this space. With a predominantly warm grey colour palette and an injection of blonde timber, makes for a very stunning and inviting space.

Coastal Chic

Looking for a modern twist on beach side living?  This kitchen oozes style, sophistication and coastal living all at the same time.

When you are renovating or building a new home, consider keeping the colour palette to a minimum and introduce a combination of natural and man-made textures to create interest.  In this home, internally the Dulux Lexicon white walls have been complemented with natural elements such as the timber floors, stone work and hardwood floors.

Also, consider using a feature colour to create contrast and interest.  Be bold and add colour to more than just one wall at a time. In this home we have used Dulux Raku both on the external and internal walls to bring continuity and rhythm.

Get this look with:

  • Polar White cabinets
  • Caesarstone Oyster benchtops
  • Dulux Lexicon on the walls and glass splashback 
  • Dulux Raku feature wall
  • Hardwood timber floors
  • Feature glass pendant lights

Creative Kitchen Design in a Small Space

A client has given us a small space of 5m x 2.4m to plan a kitchen and dining space. Whilst planning these rooms we needed to consider the rear door of the property along with the lounge room which is adjacent to the space. Good design is all about creating a functional yet stylish space that meets the clients day to day needs. We are really happy with the final plans and 3D vision for this room and hope that our clients are too! What do you think?

A new laundry

Well is seems that it is not Easter weekend at my house unless we are working on some part of our house. And this year is no different, it appears that some termites have raised their ugly heads within our laundry. The up side of this is that I get a new laundry, so I have been busy drawing up some floor plans and elevations! The down side is that I wish it was my ensuite:)

Bathroom Decorating Tips

When building a new home or renovating. Consider these tips for your next bathroom. Try a wet room, where the shower area blends into the greater bathroom space, this will make the bathroom feel larger and you will have less glass to clean!  This is always a winner for me.  However do make sure that the drainage has been fully considered as you don't want to see water falling and pooling outside the shower area.

A wall mounted cabinet will increase the sense of floor space and also ''lighten'' the visual bulk of the bathroom, therefore making the room appear larger.

Why not hide the storage unit above your basin by using a wall mounted shaving cabinet that is recessed into the wall. You gain the added benefit of the mirrors which help to reflect light and storage that is at eye level and easily accessible.

Ceiling mounted showers give a heighted felling of space. They can however be some what impractical for women. Therefore why not consider a Twin Shower, you gain the benefit of a dual shower, height and a touch of opulence at the same time.

Install a niche (or two) in your bathroom.  They are a great way to store your favourite bathroom products and also add a little wow factor to the space.  Try a long horizontal niche running the full length of your shower wall or above your bath.

Finally, your bathroom should not only be functional but should also be a space to retreat from the world and become a bit of a pamper zone.
