Colours Appointment

We went for our colours appointment and I was a little nervous even though I had most things worked out. The night before I sat with all the folder pulled apart on the lounge room floor writing down what I really liked. Our Interior Designer Lesa was excellent, she listened to everything and always gave feedback, she wasn't too sure about the colour selection for the outside of our house, she thought it might be too dark, until we showed her a picture and she quite liked it, she gave us advice on how to accesorise outside like the colour of the driveway. The Kitchen was the hardest decision we found, in the end we decided to go with what they had at the display home at Kellyville, we all wanted to have a modern "ish" house (well sort of), I love Country decorating but we all decided we wouldn't do it in this house as it really isn't designed that way. I was going to put in a Shaker Style kitchen but after talking to Lesa about it decided if your not going the full style it will look odd. We upgraded the kitchen a fair bit, we got the 40mm ceasarstone benchtop, the Polytec Thermolaminated cabinets and 2 banks of drawers with soft closers, and we picked the Baumatic Appliances. We had decided to get the dishwasher and microwave package but in the end we took that off, we will buy a dishwasher when we move in and we already had a microwave. Other upgrades were, 2 metre cupboard for the laundry, I'm so happy I'm getting it, I've always wanted a nice laundry, high ceilings, high doors and some of the main ones in the Lin 1 doors, lever handles, we increased the height and width of the stacker doors in the family and dining and we got the 4 LIN 1 doors (2 fixed) in the media room. So hopefully with all this our house will look very nice.

  1. Lovely neutral selections :) Your choice for upgrading the doors is a great one. It is the main thing I regret every day. Our extra ceiling height is wonderful, but the doors don't match in the standard height :( Can't wait to follow your journey and see the end result! Ash.
