Editor’s note I
have a love for homes and the beauty they encapsulate in every aspect from styling, intelligent and sustainable architecture and quality construction. Lucky for me, this gig delivers plenty of opportunity to unearth and learn about these industries. Most recently, I had the chance to view some of the Coast’s best property projects as the region’s unique housing industry was celebrated at the HIA-iLandscape Housing Awards. The four winning renovation projects provide plenty of inspiration. Turn to page 22 for details. Also this month, My Renovation focuses on the beauty of colour. From glamorous bathrooms - which have me wanting to tear up my own white tiles and replace with a black high gloss variety - to beautiful jewel-tone interior design ideas, we have it covered. We can’t help but feel inspired following the release of Dulux’s 2017 colour trends. According to the experts, greige and deep blues are set to shape home fashion in the coming year. It’s time to get the paint brushes out. Until next month, happy renovating.

COVER STORY //
Dress it up Containers can be painted and decorated just as with any other part of your home. Add a splash of paint to brighten up your backyard with an outdoor entertaining room.
TIP As with any addition to your home, check with your local council about requirements and approvals.
BENEFITS OF A CONTAINER • Low cost • Environmentally friendly • Less time required than construction • Low maintenance
Thinking outside the box when it comes to home renovation design is a useful skill. Sometimes this can mean living in a box. The use of shipping containers in residential and commercial architecture has been a popular tool in America and Europe for some time. Now, it is becoming a growing trend in Australia. Containers are innovative, inexpensive and, unlike constructed additions, it takes no time at all to fit them out…
Container creations Shipping containers are low maintenance and can add additional floor space to your property in a number of ways. Here are some ideas how to use them: • Granny flat • Outdoor entertaining area • Pool house • Home office • Games room
Floor planning Work with an architect to create the perfect space. Like with any renovation, identify your needs and wants and share specifications with your creative and building team. Containers can be used for a simple, single addition or fitted together for a modular effect.

INDUSTRY NEWS //
trend: IT’S ALL ABOUT GREIGE It’s the event that shapes the next 12 months of the interior design world – the annual release of the Dulux Colour Trends. The team behind the 2017 report say design will be inspired by a focus on tactility, deep blues and the evolution of ‘greiges’. Presenting a collection of globally inspired hues, a cool palette as well as colours that promote tactility and warmth, the 2017 Dulux Colour Trends Antidote: A Colour Cure comprises four themes: Sentience, Chroma, Entwine and Construct. Motivated by the desire to combat the modern challenges we face in the digital age, the Dulux
Antidote aims to offer a gentle remedy for the senses through colour and texture. Dulux colour expert Andrea Lucena-Orr says there is an ongoing desire to create havens that cater to all senses, which will see the prominence of textures blended with muted hues. “Deeper blues and greens such as Dulux Deep Arctic are predicted to be the dominant colours in 2017 and we will also see a rise in the popularity of earthy greens such as Dulux Army Fatigues. “Greys and greiges which have evolved to feature subtle undertones will also be in demand.”
Sentience This palette promotes harmony through its subtle pastels and soft neutrals including new Dulux colours, Beige Mystery and Vintage Beige.

Construct The textural palette focuses on industrial influences and metallic using new Dulux concrete and metallic effects, as well as deep inky blues. “The combination of those blues, subtle greys and the rawness found in concrete with splashes of copper offers the perfect components to create understated luxury,’’ says Lucena-Orr.
Entwine Reds are also predicted to emerge as a trend in 2017, influenced by a mix of tribal and South American themes. Entwine reflects this trend with its earthy colours.

GET THE LOOK Black and white For a classically clean kitchen design choose a simple palette of black and white. A two-tone kitchen will look sharp. No matter your taste, these colours can be used to design a modern or more traditional style. For a modern take on the theme, incorporate timber, concrete and exposed pendants.
Inspiration Take inspiration from this design to create your own unique and sleek kitchen. By incorporating varying tones of neutral and grey in the mosaic tiles, partnered by the high-gloss benchtop, this kitchen is minimalistic meets modern. It’s the perfect combination.
For a traditional style opt for a black and white floor such as this one. Checkerboard floors are classic.

Celeb style Classic charm The popularity of Hamptons home styling has brought with it a resurgence in classic interior design. This traditional style is based on elegance, opulence and a neutral palette including bright and dull white hues. This trend is particularly influencing bathroom design.

Entertainer’s delight Vintage style trolleys are making a comeback in the home. Traditionally used to serve food and drink these trolleys are now being used to dress up the corner of a room as a permanent design feature. We love this concept.
Sit and relax If space permits, incorporate one or two stools into your styling. Seating promotes a welcoming atmosphere. The Pacer stool is from Dare Gallery.
Go retro Define your cocktail corner and give the space a vibrant background with a splash of paint or wallpaper. The area does not have to perfectly match surrounding décor and design. The idea is to have a corner that makes a statement – not one that gets lost in the background. You can incorporate a couple of elements so the separate areas seamlessly flow together.

Splurge Nothing says elegance quite like a stunning light feature. The beautiful handcrafted Lola chandelier pairs natural Brazilian blue agate with a gleaming electroplated gold fixture. It’s from Vavoom Emporium and retails for $2315. Be sure to visit local stores to find something similar for your home.
Style file Take inspiration from this creation by Dulux. It features the paint manufacturer’s 2016 signature Future Past colour palette. Deep and decadent traditional hues are modernised with the addition of mustard, pink and purple.
LIKE A QUEEN Say goodbye to Fifty Shades of Grey and hello to teal. Not to mention hues of emerald, ruby, turquoise-blue and amethyst. Interior design experts from across the world have spoken and they predict, in addition to neutral tones, the year 2017 will be a time for colour – jewel tones to be exact.

INSPIRATION // GET THE LOOK The design of the outdoor entertainment area, which overlooks the pool and features a sand floor, is easy enough to achieve at home. Seek out local landscape suppliers to source sand for your own design. Use rustic furniture such as the kwila and wicker Salerno & Bronx setting from The Outdoor Furniture Specialists.
LUXURIOUS BOHO LIVING The global real estate industry was buzzing earlier this year when Hollywood heavyweight Johnny Depp listed his majestic French hamlet, Plan de la Tour, for sale. While the rumoured US$55 million ($71 million) price tag is unattainable for most, the estate – which comes complete with its own bar and restaurant – provides some unique inspiration
for those who favour the blend of provincial and bohemian design. Listed by luxury property managers Hilton & Hyland, the estate is set on 15 hectares and includes 1200m2 of living space including the main house, six guest cottages, two swimming pools, gym and painter’s studio.

MOVE OUT Before you embark on a renovation project weigh up how it will affect your living situation. If your bathroom or kitchen is undergoing a major remodel, chances are you will have to find alternative accommodation. Investigate your options early in the game.
Kitchen fix Dress up a dated kitchen bench by adding new stools. If space permits, opt for three stools as opposed to two or four. There is no hard and fast rule but stylists say that odd-numbered sets look better.
Let it shine The Australian Government Your Home website recommends removing trees or plantings that are blocking solar access to north facing glass. Also, ask neighbours to prune or remove such trees.

Pretty as a picture When hanging artwork – whether it be a canvas, painting or large photo – make sure it is at eye level. This will create the most interest and the work will be eye-catching.
Make it count How much thought did you put into displaying your street address on the mailbox or front fence? Think outside the box and choose a decorative style. One method that looks great is spelling the number out.

HIA awards: BEST OF THE BEST
our local renovation projects have been recognised at this year’s HIA-iLandscape Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay Housing Awards. The awards celebrate the region’s property portfolio and attract hundreds of entries across a range of
categories including innovative housing, kitchen design, affordable housing and renovation. Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay HIA manager Stuart Collins says the awards traditionally attract a high level of entries. “This healthy level of competition
ensures that new standards in design, workmanship and innovation are achieved across all award categories.’’ My Renovation takes a look at the renovation categories to find out what’s behind the creation of an award-winning project.

how to: PAINT A CONCRETE DRIVEWAY
f you are looking for a quick and inexpensive way to freshen up your driveway, you may find the answer in a tin of paint. While topcrete and similar products are long-lasting and look terrific, cleaning and painting the area can be a short-term solution. STEP ONE The first thing to do is clean the driveway. Sweep the area and then scrub it with a stiff broom and apply etch primer. Allow the primer to sit on the concrete for 15 minutes before hosing clean.

MAKE YOUR GARAGE AMAZING WITH
EPOXY GARAGE FLOORING unwanted paint getting on nearby garden edging, pavers or walls. STEP THREE Talk to your local paint and hardware experts about choosing the right paint product. Specialised driveway paint can be challenging to apply as it has a thick consistency. The experts at Bunnings recommend diluting some of the paint with mineral turpentine for the first coat. Mix 100ml of turpentine in for every litre of paint. STEP FOUR Bunnings recommends, painting all the edges with a paint brush. After cutting in, use a roller for the rest of the surface. Remember to allow time for each coat to dry – at least 15 hours.
EPOXY DOUBLE GARAGE From $1,699
TIP Keep in mind that once you paint and finish the driveway, you won’t be able to use it for around six to seven days.
Epoxy floors are seamless and extremely abrasion resistant. Making it the ideal concrete surface treatment when durability, resistance to heavy foot traffic and minimal maintenance is important.
