MAKE YOUR GARAGE AMAZING WITH
EPOXY GARAGE FLOORING EPOXY DOUBLE GARAGE
elcome to 2021, the year of transformation. Last year, as we adapted to the constraints of living with a pandemic, our ‘at home’ time increased beyond our wildest imaginings. Suddenly, every move outside the house was restricted and there was no choice but to instigate dual living arrangements to accommodate our new lifestyle. In no time at all our home also became our office, gym, cinema, restaurant, farmers market and perhaps even a classroom. Then we were introduced to communicating via Zoom and our personal space became public property. Pictures of our dull, blank walls, an old vase, shabby blinds or messy bookshelf were beamed across to friends and colleagues as we sat in our ironed linen shirt and comfy pyjama bottoms. It was time for change and as the last months of 2020 flew by, our homes took on new meaning and in this first edition of 2021 we have filled our pages with products, tips and hints that reflect our new age of living – the multi-functional home.

2021 WHAT TO EXPECT Now that we have more time to spend at home, it’s time to re-imagine our space to suit our lifestyle. Trends this year move further towards a renewed appreciation for organic, earthy and optimistic. There is a natural pairing of solid backgrounds brought to life with big pops of colour, including statement wallpapers and florals. Alternatively, coastal casual elegance defined by simplicity and clean lines, remains a five-star design trend. Check out our 2021 style list and get ready to create your own world.
2021 themes FABRICS Natural, earthy, eco-conscious and easy to clean. The pandemic has put cleanliness into the spotlight and the easier it is to wash and dry, the better it is for our health and happiness. Think – hemp fabric, organic cotton, bamboo, linen or hessian made from the skin of the jute plant or sisal fibres – they are all easy to launder. FLOORING Now that we’re home more often, floors are getting a lot more use. This year’s advice is to stick to the traditional, tough and natural. Bring in the tranquillity of nature with wood floors and stains or ceramic tiles in plain or patterned. FLORA AND FAUNA This year as our homes fill with technology, it’s important to balance the machines with plants. Indoor plants don’t just look good, they absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. The addition of house plants to your home is a natural way to reduce air pollution and increase oxygen levels. House plants control the humidity in a room to within the optimum range for our health.
COLOUR OF THE YEAR This year, Pantone has chosen a pair of emboldening shades as the 2021 Colours of the Year. Pantone’s Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming shade imbued with solar power. Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation of resilience.
For over 20 years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design.

AUSTRALIAN ACCENTS/ GLOBAL THEMES JAPANDI Japandi is a hybrid trend. This new look takes on the modern style of Scandinavian design and combines it with the timeless elegance of Japanese aesthetics to create a style that combines the best of both worlds. It fits with the 2021 theme of simplicity and elegance. HAMPTONS The Hamptons style is classic yet casual, cool and contemporary. It’s up to you to style it from minimalist to glam. It’s is all about cool, calming whites with softening touches of neutral colours such as creams, greys, blues and linen tones. Shades of blue are most often found in Hamptons style homes, ranging from deep navy blues to duck egg blues.
MODERN BOHO Casual, artistic, worldly, colourful. It’s an eclectic mix of old, vintage furniture and decor pieces that might have been hand-me-downs or picked up from travels. Mix up patterns and prints and place plenty of tribal/Moroccan inspired cushions and throws.

tip A handy interior designer’s trick is to decorate about 70 per cent of a room in a particular style, then decorate the remaining 30 per cent in a neutral or completely different style so the room doesn’t look overdone.
On trend: art deco mirrors Mirrors are a huge trend for 2021 and so is the colour of gold. Give a nod to nostalgia and choose an art deco aesthetic for your focal point.

TIP Smart kitchen are connected via IoT (Internet of Things) technology, Bluetooth, or wifi and can be controlled remotely via a mobile app or a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa or Google Home assistant.
PRODUCT ALERT LG has revealed the 2021 version of its InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerator with the standout new addition being you can tell the door to open with your voice. LG’s range of smart fridges already had both Alexa and Google Assistant on board, so you can add stuff to your shopping lists, play music and use your fridge as a kitchen hub – but that voice functionality now extends to saying: “Open the refrigerator door.” As well as the upgraded voice smarts, the new 2021 InstaView model has a larger display window than its predecessors. If you’re not already aware, the screen on the front of the InstaView fridge is essentially a tablet running webOS, where you can do things like upload family photos, make notes or leave doodles for your kids.
2021 is here with a difference and if your wish is to shape up with colour and curves, then check out what Harvey Norman can mix up for you.

EXPERT ADVICE //
MAKING A SPACE YOUR OWN design dream With Cassandra Fenaughty Cassandra Fenaughty is a landscape architect with more than 20 years’ experience. She’s the founder and owner of an innovative new renovation design consultancy, creating photo-real renovation concepts for clients looking to visualise their dream renovation before it begins. For more visit cassandrafenaughty.com.
2020 saw incredible changes in the way we use our homes. Our home was our sanctuary, our office, our children’s school, a day spa, an eatery, exercise space, the list goes on! With all of these activities happening in the home, home organisation, functionality and creating a beautiful space that we really enjoy being in has never been more important. So how do we make sure that during these chaotic times, our home remains our sanctuary? There are a few tricks of the trade that can help you create a special place to relax and breathe: 1. TIDY UP AND LET GO OF CLUTTER Roll your sleeves up and get ruthless. Anything you haven’t used in the past 12 months can go on Facebook Marketplace or to your nearest op shop. A tidy home is a peaceful home, this includes your internal, external and yard spaces.

2. ZONE YOUR HOME It’s important to keep study and work spaces organised and away from your sleeping zones. Even if they are in the same room it’s important to create some boundaries. The boundaries may be as simple as a room divider, bookshelf, a separate
rug to divide the room or beautiful sheer curtain. If you have a large home make some family rules about keeping office or study rooms out of bounds during certain hours. Your dining space is for family time and really shouldn’t be burdened with devices or work paraphernalia.
Come and see us for all your DIY at home projects!

3. MAKE THE SPACE YOUR OWN Every family member needs their own nook or space to retreat to. Personalising this space is a great way to make it feel special and sacred to you and each respective family member. Children often need quiet time to recharge. Personalising their space can be as simple as creating a corner in their bedroom filled with their favourite things such as a display shelf, soft toys, or some cute throw cushions on a soft rug with their special blanket and book.
An adult retreat may vary from an armchair and side table in the bedroom to a hammock on the back deck, or you may simply have a favourite chair in the living room that you enjoy your bar of chocolate in after the kids have gone to bed. The act of styling your retreat space can be like a ritual in dedicating a small piece of the home to just you. Styling this space doesn’t need to be difficult, stressful or expensive. It doesn’t always have to be the same, it can be updated as
seasons or moods change. One great way to do this is with a vignette. A vignette is a small pleasing arrangement of pieces that tell a story about you and your home. Here are some examples of vignettes in different rooms of your home: BEDROOM: A bedroom vignette may consist of a decorative tray, beautiful vase and scented calming candle to relax with. LIVING ROOM: A featured floor plant in a wicker basket, a macramé wall hanging and textured rug. BATHROOM: A timber tray with bath salts, soothing candle and a small indoor plant for a pop of colour and greenery. VERANDAH OR PATIO: A whitewashed lantern, citronella candle and decorative garland beads next to your armchair or hammock.
Why not start the year creating your special space! This month we are giving away a $99 vignette package tailored to your home by Tracey and Kim from The Style Society Sunshine Coast, a new, local styling business launched this year. To enter please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. au or enquiries@cassandrafenaughty. com with your styling or renovation query. To take a sneak peak at this local boutique business go to thestylesocietysc.com.au or their Facebook page.

ORDINARY FOUR EASY-TO-GROW INDOOR PLANTS You don’t have to have the proverbial green thumb to have a home full of healthy plants. We have listed five indoor or plants that need so little, yet give so much back – increased d creativity, reduced stress and filtering of air pollutants. You will find these plants at Manawee Garden Centre. 2. DEVIL’S IVY thrives in pots, hanging baskets or will simply live in water in a vase/jar. It is suited to any position in the house as long as there is a little light. It can produce stems that trail to 2.5 metres or longer. Water deeply once a week, cut back to every other week in winter. You can place cuttings in glass jars of water to encourage rooting. Devil’s ivy requires a premium potting mix.
1. MONSTERA plants prefer a warm climate away from direct sunlight. Let the top 4cm of soil dry out between watering, as over-watering may lead to root rot. Signs of this are yellowing or wilting leaves. Monsteras enjoy moist conditions, so avoid artificial heating and cooling, Use a controlled-release fertiliser in spring and a water-soluble fertiliser every month from spring to late summer.

3. SNAKE PLANTS will tolerate many different lighting conditions, though they generally prefer to be partially shaded. They should only be watered once the soil is dry. You should also be careful not to get excess water on the leaves, as this can cause damage. It can be propagated in the spring months by taking a small leaf cutting.

POOLS // FRESHWATER POOL
Image: Pool Fab
A freshwater pool is better for the environment. With water similar to your household tap, a Naked Pool is best described as swimming in a freshwater stream, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after use. It’s perfect for those with allergies or asthma and has lower running costs. No need to wash swimwear or shower after swimming. Your equipment and pool surrounds will also last longer. It features crystal clear water that will make your pool look amazing.
COOL POOLS It’s hot on the Sunny Coast and one of the best ways to beat the heat is to cool off in your home pool. The pool is often a focal point, so make sure its design blends in with the look and feel of your whole property. When you come to building your pool, besides pool shape and size, think about landscaping, building materials, tiling, lighting, cleaning and perhaps a bold water feature.
Image: Pool Fab
Landscaping can make a big difference to your pool. Plants purify the air and regulate humidity, making them a great addition to any environment. For a green wall full of foliage, cascading plants such as various types of ferns, ivy, dichondra and wattle will do a great job of filling out the space. For flowering options, try a selection of petunias, sweet alyssum, begonias and geraniums. For something that’s even easier to maintain, opt for a succulent garden. Succulents are a great choice because they are resilient.

Hair, lint, leaves and insects that enter the pool and remain floating on the surface can be easily removed with surface skimmers. There are two types of surface skimmers: hand and automatic. The hand skimmer is simply a plastic screen or net attached to a long pole and should be used to remove the larger floating objects, such as leaves and grass. The automatic surface skimmer is a device which is attached to the filtering system. During the filtering process, part of the surface water is drawn through the skimmer and into the filter, carrying with it dust, small insects, and other fine debris before these can settle to the pool floor.
FOR STYLE and Security
POOL FAB’S WEEKLY POOL MAINTENANCE TIPS • Check the return flow of water to the pool. Add chemicals at this point to ensure effective mixing with filtered water return. • Test and adjust water for chlorine, pH and alkalinity. • Vacuum pool floor and walls (If you don’t have a Baracuda). It’s a good idea to do this on a Friday evening ready for heavy weekend usage. • Empty skimmer baskets. • Backwash filter monthly or as required.
