colour 2017

If you’ve ever designed a logo, approved a brochure or had a business card printed, you’re probably familiar with the name PANTONE – a company which has built its reputation by developing colour matching formulas. Well it is in fact PANTONE ”Colour Forecasters” who research colour popularity and trends, based on that they predict what colours will be popular up to two years ahead. Designers and manufacturers of all kinds - fashion, interior, furniture and more tend to base their collections and new ranges on the PANTONE forecasts, which is why you see the same colours in all the stores. So what are the colours for 2017? Many of the hues for next year echo the colors of nature, both muted and earthy and vivid and bright and, from Hazelnut, a…

nautilus

Occupying four lots on the foreshore of Burraneer Bay with 3,950m of roofed area set over six levels, just the sheer scale of this home is quite extraordinary. Add to that the extensive list of exceptional amenities that include 7 bedrooms, 2 separate guest pavilions, 20 bathrooms, 6 kitchens, a commercial grade bar and bowling alley, a gymnasium, a cellar, an underground tunnel and music room all built on a sloping block to exacting and luxurious specifications and you start to get a very clear picture of how truly deserving this home is of it title. Named after the winding feature staircase at the entry of the home constructed with millimeter precision to resemble a Nautilus shell, this home was destined to be a winner from the outset.

a modern classic

Entering the home through a covered portico beside a grand, gated driveway, looking at the external finishes, it’s easy to imagine the luxury that lies inside. Cedar lined eaves, under-lit for a warm glow, slat roof tiles imported from Europe, copper guttering and a sparkling mosaic tiled pool combine to give you a feeling as though you’re entering a luxury resort rather than a suburban Perth home. Internally the home has been finished to the exacting standards that have built Spadaccini Home’s reputation as one of WA’s most prestigious luxury home builders. Throughout this exceptional 620sqm home the sophisticated neutral palette is a blend of luxurious natural materials that include heated marble flooring throughout and a stunning feature stone wall that houses the elevator shaft for the glass lift and a…

landmark home in yowie bay

Judges comments were … “the waterfront property leaves nothing to the imagination” and from the moment you enter through the custom made two meter wide entry door below a stunning porte cochere of two perfectly parallel panels that angled upwards - reaching for the sky, it’s clearly evident that this home is very special. The owner’s dream was to build something that would make people smile and be inspired at every turn and this has certainly been achieved. As expected of a home of this calibre it has been completed with state of the art appliances and a central Cbus system but aside from this nothing in this home is ordinary. With furnishings by Sally Taylor Design and interiors designed by Michael McCann of Dreamtime Australia Design every aspect of this home…

luxe lodge

Start with the setting, perched on a mountain top, surrounded by 200 acres with far-reaching views of the Glasshouse Mountains, Moreton Bay and Brisbane. Next, add a discerning client who desires a home that not only represents the highlights of their own travel experiences, but that provides a feeling of wellbeing that surpasses their stays in some of the world’s most glamorous hotels. The result? Luxe Lodge. Almost every element of this high-end luxury hotel-esque ‘weekend retreat’, (yes this is just the owners weekender), was custom designed by Mark Gacesa of Ultrapsace who worked on the client’s main residence located in Brisbane. And with an area of around 900sqm this home boasts so many unique features they’re difficult to mention. The project has been awarded over 30 design awards, including the HIA…
