Home design guide: Creating a timeless interior

Posted 8 November 2017

When selecting a new home design, one of the most fundamental requirements is making sure the home design will suit your family’s needs today and into the future.

To help make sure your new home design captures a timeless layout and style, here are some important traits to consider:

  • Open plan living

Virtually all of our display homes and Perth home designs embrace open plan living, as this design trend gives timeless freedom and flexibility. For example, our Taylor display home enjoys a beautiful open floor plan at the rear of the home, with an island bench and kitchen stools making sure the kitchen is always connected to the activity in the area.

  • Neutral colour palettes

Neutral colour palettes will give your new home design a beautiful sense of classic style. Think white painted walls and tiling that captures soft greys and creams. In our award-winning Tropicana display home, even the wallpaper embraces relatively neutral tones for long-term appeal.

  • Indoor / outdoor living

Our Mediterranean climate means the trend of seamless indoor/outdoor living is here to stay. Whether it’s supervising young children in the garden while you prepare dinner, or hosting decadent long lunches, indoor/outdoor living is something you embrace for a lifetime. Our Harvest display home integrates the living, dining, kitchen, home theatre and alfresco into one sumptuous free-flowing expanse.

  • Timeless timber

There’s something truly timeless about timber, so it’s little wonder our Perth home builders opt to utilise its warm, enduring characteristic in our display homes. For example, our Tropicana display home has an award-winning classic charm with bursts of timber throughout, from the timber-style kitchen cupboards and furniture to the timber decking, garden beds and bench seating outside.

  • Clean, classic lines

Crisp, clean lines give your home design a modern, minimalistic effect that will be appreciated across the passing years. Our Solace display home is a great example of how clean lines and elongated living spaces create a neutral, contemporary canvas for your family’s lifestyle.

  • Subtle quirkiness

Don’t be afraid to inject a little intrigue and personality when creating a timeless home design. There are sophisticated design features that can survive the test of time, such as the herringbone splashback in our Tropicana display home.

  • Classic comfort

As well as looking beautiful, a timeless home design must also be beautifully comfortable. Our Harvest display home invites you to stay awhile with plush dining chairs, gorgeous wide couches and a feature ottoman in the study.
