JAMES TREBLE Interior Designer
Making all the selections for your new kitchen can be overwhelming as you want to make this part of your home a great success. It’s a space you will spend so much time in and usually flows on to living areas or other entertaining zones so getting it wrong can be detrimental to how your home functions.
Kitchen Culture specialise in quality kitchen designs that reflect the latest in bench tops, cabinetry, splashbacks, door handles and everything your dream kitchen needs. Renowned Interior Designer James Treble says that the standard kitchens offered by Kitchen Culture for Eden Brae homes are brilliant with plenty of choice ensuring your brand new kitchen looks good and works well for your household. Of course you can also upgrade to really personalise this room and make it perfect for all your needs. Perhaps you would like extra drawers or added height to your cupboards or a discreet pull- out bin. Ask yourself how do you want the kitchen to work for you? Are you an avid cook who wants lots of storage space for your various appliances? Or perhaps you want a generous island bench so you can prepare dinner whilst supervising kids with their homework. After all the kitchen really is the heart of the home and deserves more consideration than any other room. James Treble strongly advises to do your homework when it comes to the kitchen. “ Visit display homes, look at magazines, Pinterest and other sources of ideas” says James. The great advantage of visiting display homes is that you can get a real feel for how a specific kitchen design works and what if any changes you would make. You can walk around the space and imagine preparing a meal or making a morning coffee. You can see for yourself whether you like cabinetry in high gloss, matt or even a grain finish. Maybe you like funky door handles that are distinct features or no handles on your cupboards at all for a fluid and sleek look. Display homes help make all those decisions a little easier even if it means deciding what you don’t like. The Eden Brae Display homes are a fabulous resource. Visit them. Have a look at the various kitchen layouts and you will no doubt have more confidence when it comes to your own selections. Finally, discuss your kitchen wish list with the dynamic team at Kitchen Culture who are just as committed as you are to make your dream kitchen a reality.

Healthy Living STARTS IN YOUR NEW HOME â€“LITERALLY Creating an allergy - smart home is increasingly becoming a serious consideration. With 2.3 million Australians living with Asthma and one in three with allergies, creating a healthy home is and should be high on the list for anyone building a new home. Everyday triggers including pollutants, mould, volatile organic compounds and dust mite allergens can set off symptoms. Australians spend about 90 percent of their time indoors so the quality of the air we breathe is important. Pollutants in indoor air typically occur more frequently and at a higher concentrations than outside air and todayâ€™s home tends to be more air tight and built with materials that can contribute to indoor air pollution.

Condensation as a result of inadequate ventilation can also lead to mould. Not only is mould unattractive but also poses a serious health risk. Effective ventilation in the home is essential to keeping condensation and mould at bay. What’s great about building a home today is that innovative products and materials make it possible to live in a healthy home. CSR Gyprock Sensitive is one such product: 10mm plasterboard that offers superior moisture and mould resistance properties. Mould thrives in bathrooms where increased steam and humidity provide ideal conditions so the Gyprock Sensitive is the ideal solution for wet areas. Alisha Mykytowycz, Marketing and Communications and Brand Manager at CSR Gyprock explains that this product “is mould resistant due to a powerful but gentle antifungal agent throughout its core which penetrates the paper and subsequent decorating coating” It’s the only residential plasterboard to be approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice program as a better choice for those living with asthma and allergies. Ventilation is also helped by window choice. Take Stegbars Louvre windows. They allow you to control airflow and breeze strength. When opened they act as air conditioning and closed, a solid barrier against water and wind. Stegbar also provide functional and stylish double hung windows and equally impressive bi fold doors and windows that provide open spaces to maximise ventilation. Stegbar windows and doors have been tested and comply with the Green Building Council of Australia’s guidelines on indoor Environment Quality. Choosing products to build your home with that are actually conducive to good health is not only a wise and smart decision but one that will have enduring benefits for your whole household. 16 Gallery MAGAZINE

The metallic trend is possibly the new neutral. Metallic colours from rose gold to gunmetal have the ability to lift any colour palette. Metallics bring a modern sophistication and chic elegance to any space. Gold hues can be edgy and refined, a touch of silver can be understated glamour, bronze can add luxurious warmth and thanks to modern applications almost every colour can have a metallic tone giving you so many options for decorating. According to Vogue the use of metallics in décor is up by 423% and it’s not going away anytime soon. Metallics pair effortlessly with organic textures and materials from timbers to raw stone and marble and they soften rich woods and masculine leathers and glamour and luxury are making a comeback. The stripped bare, minimalist approach is being surpassed by interiors that evoke emotion.
ALABASTRI DE REX
EXTRA LIGHT CIRCLES
Metallic décor creates interest and shine while accenting natural light. Metallic hues in flooring help to bounce light around the room and produce multi dimensional visuals. Metallic tiles have a distinct and unique appeal and work well with appliances and other fixtures. Who better than Di Lorenzo to provide the very latest tiles in this trend that’s clearly here to stay. Gallery MAGAZINE 23
COTTO ETRUSCO: An exquisite handmade product. The ancient kiln used to manufacture the terracotta was discovered in an old tip of Etruscan origin. A relationship then developed between designers and master craftsman which allowed the manufacture to recover ancient production techniques and secret formulas of glazes to create what is a beautiful handcrafted collection of terracotta tiles. –all made of natural oxides with stunning metallic hues in aqua blues, navy, purples, greens, reds, lilacs, oranges, pinks… ALABASTRI DI REX: Onyx, naturally luxurious and known as an ornamental stone is not always a practical choice for the home but the Alabastri range is a full body Italian porcelain tile which has all the durable properties of porcelain but perfectly replicates the stunning translucency of Onyx. EXTRA LIGHT CIRCLES: Extra light mosaics are made from transparent glass. The shape is contemporary and the colour palette luxurious. With such sublime names as gold penny, silver mirror and moka you cannot go wrong. I FRAMMENTI: Is the world’s smallest mosaic. It is 5x5x5mm in size and made in a matt, gloss and glass finish. Its small size allows it to be used on curved walls. The glossy options in gold, silver and bronze are sure to impress
LUX COLLECTION: True to its name and inspired by the colours of precious jewels. Suitable for walls, the use of this tile will raise the bar of any rooms interior. VETRO: A remarkable choice. The glass is produced in Tuscany and tumbled in Sicily and made up of 90% recycled material with all natural colours and pigments used to create a sophisticated factor with an elegant shimmer. From traditional metallic shades of silver and golds and coppers to a smattering of iridescent pinks and blues this tile range is simply gorgeous.

MAKE GOOD TIMES EVEN BETTER WITH THE RIGHT LIGHTING This time of year is fabulous for celebrating and entertaining and lighting is a way of really making the most of your entertaining spaces whether they it be indoors or outside. Beacon has lights to suit every occasion. When it comes to bold lighting in the kitchen, brighter isnâ€™t always better. In fact you need to be particularly smart with kitchen lighting and take into account all the other selections you have made for this area. Over bright lights and polished surfaces can often lead to glare. You may find yourself squinting during food prep or blocking a bright light during a conversation with a friend. Consider where you will be preparing meals and make sure this this task lighting is switched separately and has the ability to be dimmed or intensified as required.

Layering lighting is a great idea for the kitchen. This technique has three basic different layers of light which included Ambient, Task and Decorative. You then have control over the appropriate light source you need depending on the situation. The ambient layer is overhead lighting in the room that will allow for safe movement in the space. Task lighting is for preparing food and other kitchen tasks and Decorative/Accent lighting is for highlighting focal points in this space and enhancing overall design. Beacon Lighting has an incredible range of innovative lighting options for your kitchen from pendant lights over your island bench to clever LEDâ€™s for under the kickboard and skirting to add another dimension. If you are entertaining in alfresco area and outdoors there are some great options. Festoon lights are perfect for decorating entertaining areas and combine the traditional look of bulbs with LED technology for a super stylish solution.

Three Key Lighting Trends for summer 2018/19 Exterior occasional lighting such as the Dawson Lantern is IP44 rated and is DIY. Perfect for use as a lamp under an alfresco as they can be plugged into a power point or converted into a pendant to be hung from a low hanging branch or bough.
NEO CLASSIC: This trend is all about melding tradition and modern with brass being the key material. Beacon Lightings new Slavia chandelier range and Saville close to ceiling work so well with elements of brass and elegant cut crystal
LED Smart lighting gives you so many fun and creative ways to really add a splash of colour. You can match a party’s theme colour with your lighting: green and red for Christmas, striking metallic colours in silvers and golds for New Years and yes you can even throw a new colour onto a wall or even your front door. The possibilities are endless and entertaining has never been more fun.
MINIMALIST ZEN: Think clean lines, simple uncomplicated shapes. This somewhat masculine look is softened by accent colours of blue, white and grey. Check out Beacon’s Panorama ring, Lance floor lamp and Rand wall light
Don’t forget to fan it! Ceiling fans with integrated LED lighting mean you can have light AND comfort. Take note of the latest timber range in Ash, Koa and Teak.

URBAN NEUTRAL: This is a relaxed and casual trend that embraces soft textures and harmonious elements yet has versatile and modern appeal. Think shabby sheik meets urban rock. The Charlotte chandelier and Alvar Lantern lamps from Beacon echo this trend beautifully.

A FRONT DOOR SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE REST OF YOUR HOME
The front door is like the principal dancer in a ballet. It has a solo performance and must not disappoint.
Selecting a door from the recently extended Corinthian Blonde Oak Collection has just got even more exciting with 11 highly versatile styles now available. No matter what your personal style you will find the right door from classic and traditional to the very contemporary. Crafted from sustainable timber, the popular Blonde Oak Collection has clear and translucent glass panel options available across the range. The light American White Oak veneer acts as a blank canvas with the freedom to choose a light or dark finish, opening up a world of design possibilities. Interior designer, Sally Knibbs says “The Blonde Oak Collection has been created with purity in mind; the ability to develop a single, unified theme throughout your home. This visual consistency is crucial to interior design as it reflects a sense of calm - in turn, giving your home a more refined finish. The versatility of the new range means it can be adapted to honour any home style, now or in the future. The quality craftsmanship and materials mean that 50 Gallery MAGAZINE
your door will look great now and can be refinished to create a new appearance if you choose to renovate.” Here Sally opens the door to some of her favourite looks and how a front door can really make an entrance. MINIMALIST: Forget fussy fashions, ‘less is more’ has become a universal design concept. This look is typified by refined simple lines, quality finishes, neutral colours and clean-cut edges. Corinthian’s City pivot door adorns an almost sparse exterior, using vertical glass panels to give the illusion of height and a rich brown shade to the door becomes the understated focal point of a modern home. “People are often drawn to minimalist interior style for its effortless simplicity, but it’s actually the contrast of tones, proportions and lighting that make the look. Try experimenting with different glass panelling to cast defining shadows in your entrance, and if architecturally equipped, choose a pivot door for a bolder opening to the home.”
MODERN COUNTRY: Modern country inspired homes reflect a sense of warmth and light, by marrying warm colours like creamy whites and chestnut browns, defined by strong timber accents throughout the home. “The Corinthian Blonde Oak door collection has a true Country style offering. The American White Oak veneer frame harmonises with a beautiful stone facade creating a seamless experience as you walk through the door. An open panel of clear glass allows light to fill the entrance, creating a cosy atmosphere in the home. Alternatively, frosted glass offers privacy for homes with direct visibility of the interior”.

For a twist – try making a statement with a blue base stained door, drawing upon tones the sea and sky.” The Blonde Oak Collection is designed to be versatile enough for a range of architectural styles, allowing homeowners to set the tone of their home and creating a feeling of consistency. The range uses traditional stile and rail joinery techniques and meets BAL 12.5 requirements. Don’t underestimate the importance of the front door – give it the spotlight it deserves.
COASTAL: More than just a style, the coastal look is a way of life. Everything from the weatherboard, to the doors and windows take their aesthetic cues from the coastline and sunny skies. “Corinthian’s Blonde Oak Coastal doors reflect the beautiful Australian shoreline.
