Cre­ate in­ter­est with a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als

For­get min­i­mal­ism, it’s time to mix it up for a mod­ern look that’s invit­ing and sets the scene for your home

The Courier-Mail - Home - - LUST HAVES | ON TREND -

The smooth, min­i­mal­ist look is out and a mix of ma­te­ri­als is in, ac­cord­ing to Perry Homes mar­ket­ing man­ager Kaye Durre.

Perry Homes have used a mod­ern mix of ren­der, tim­ber, cladding and stacked stone fea­tures to cre­ate an award­win­ning dis­play home in Stock­land’s Sov­er­eign Pocket com­mu­nity in Dee­bing Heights near Ip­swich.

Ms Durre said the con­tem­po­rary ‘mix­ing it up’ trend was in­creas­ingly be­ing used in­ter­nally and for the ex­te­rior of new-build homes.

“Mod­ern mixed fa­cades are be­com­ing very pop­u­lar,” Ms Durre said. “Home own­ers shouldn’t un­der­es­ti­mate the im­por­tance of their ex­te­rior home de­sign – it sets the de­sign style for the home you are cre­at­ing inside.”

Ms Durre said the key to the lat­est look was to use a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures with light colour changes to cre­ate in­ter­est­ing fo­cal points.

“Inside, two-toned kitchens are highly re­garded with buy­ers at the mo­ment who are opt­ing for sharp con­trasts in colour. Stone bench­tops are a must,” she said.

The ‘mix­ing it up’ style also ticks boxes in terms of af­ford­abil­ity.

The Dee­bing Heights home is the win­ner of the Mas­ter Builders Queens­land 2017 state award for the best dis­play home un­der $250,000.

“We’ve demon­strated that styling this home in this man­ner is a really cost ef­fec­tive way of cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful look­ing home that won’t hurt the bud­get,” Ms Durre said.

Sov­er­eign Pocket at Dee­bing Heights of­fers a stylish range of house and land pack­ages fea­tur­ing the lat­est in de­sign and in­no­va­tion from some of Queens­land’s most awarded home builders.
