n another life I would love to be an interior designer. Creating innovative, smart and beautiful spaces can be a lot of fun. It can also be hard work, and something that takes a lot of skill. I think the lovely Shaynna Blaze sums it up when she says, for her, interior design is about creativity, freedom and beauty. To Shaynna, being an interior designer is also about changing people’s lives. This month, we profile the TV personality and find out what it takes to create the perfect space. Turn to page six to see what advice she shares with home renovators. Also in this edition, we delve into the world of innovative building products to get you thinking about unique design. You might be surprised to lean about what products are available. It just takes a little research. In this jam-packed issue we also take a look at the growing trend of using mixed materials such as concrete, timber and colour to create a contemporary kitchen, and also get you thinking about the beauty of using green in home styling. Enjoy, and until next time, happy renovating.

COVER STORY //
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT When you get caught up in the hype of current building and design trends it can sometimes mean you sacrifice your own personal style. Stand out from the rest by incorporating unique elements into your renovation project. My Renovation explores some innovative building materials…
SCYON MATRIX If you are looking for a way to give the exterior of your home a modern finish, consider using Scyon Matrix cladding. The product has a contemporary geometric, expressed-joint look, which can be painted to achieve any style. The experts from international building product manufacturer James Hardie have provided us with useful information about the Matrix material: WHERE CAN YOU USE IT? The product can be used in residential and medium-density applications wherever a modern or industrial design is required, including external walls in composite construction, upper-storey, ground-level extensions and internal feature walls. HOW IS IT INSTALLED? It’s relatively easy. The cladding sheets are installed with Scyon cavity trim battens. The expressed joint is created easily using a 10 millimetre packer. Sheets are sanded
smooth and pre-primed for paint application and a high-quality finish. WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? A variety of looks can be created thanks to the availability of square and rectangular panels. You have the option of creating horizontal and vertical stripes right through to geometric patterns. Sanded sheets give a flat, smooth finish and digital printing can add even more design options. The cladding’s resistance to cracking, warping and swelling means it can be painted in both dark and light colours. WHAT IS IT MADE FROM? Matrix cladding is made from Scyon, a lightweight cement composite with heavy-duty performance. IS IT EASY TO WORK WITH? Yes. It can be gun nailed and is easy to cut, just like timber.

ARChitectural Inraw This James Hardie product is a finished panel with a high level of application durability. It is characterised by a natural raw concrete aesthetic. The panel offers a double shield of durability in a range of commercial interior dry wall and ceiling applications. Talk to your builder about sourcing the product, or one with a similar look, for your residential property.
GET THE LOOK Released earlier this year, the RT25 decking from Harvey Norman is an innovative outdoor product. It’s cost effective and has a 25 year warranty. It comes in a range of stains and as standard five metre lengths, making it easy to install.
DID YOU KNOW? Talk to your local paint supplier about the availability of tinting exterior paint colours using heat reflective technology. The process increases solar reflectance. This means colour is less likely to fade and will have a longer life span. What’s more, the paint assists in reflecting heat from your home, which means you may save some dollars in the cooling department.

PRODUCT ALERT Have you heard of epoxy flooring? It’s not a new product but it’s one that is growing in popularity. This flooring material is durable and a long-lasting solution, perfect for garage or shed floors. The team at Sunshine Coast business Custom Flek say that epoxy floors offer a wide variety of both variant base and flake colours. Visit one of your local suppliers to find out more.

meet: SHAYNNA BLAZE
he is known as one of Australia’s leading interior design gurus, and for good reason. Shaynna Blaze has built a solid career educating the nation on what makes good home styling – and also, what doesn’t. Following November’s wrap up of television series, The Block – on which Blaze is a judge – the reality queen took time out from her busy schedule to chat with My Renovation about all things beautiful…

What are you working on right now? I’m halfway through filming series 10 of Selling Houses Australia, the last two episodes of Deadline Design, and I have three great private client projects in commercial and residential. Then (I’m) working on a rest. What life lessons have you taken away from your successful career?
Persistence is everything; if it isn’t working try another angle. My career has zigzagged and many times I thought it was too hard but by being persistent, and having the right people around you, you will eventually get there. What do you love about the interior design world? Creativity, freedom, beauty. I love the fact it is not just about pretty things but solving problems, changing people’s lives and exploring all types of styles and budgets. Where do you draw your inspiration from? It is a little cliché, but everywhere. You can’t single it down to suppliers, nature or people as each project is so different and has its own specific needs. I have to

look for inspiration in a multitude of places if I am wanting them to all have their own unique look. What advice can you share with home renovators? Do your research, refine your budget and make sure you, or the builder, is project managing and keeping it on time and on budget.
What is your favourite home styling colour, product and theme? I am a huge fan of the cool palettes of blue and teal and mixing with strong whites. I don’t have a favourite style and I constantly am mixing styles. I do love the base architecture of Victorian details. My favourite styling item is artwork, it can add colour, character and set the look for a room.
I love the fact it is not just about pretty things, but solving problems, changing people’s lives.

ENGINEERED TIMBER FLOORING
looring is a vital part of any home renovation project. Choose wisely as it is the first thing people will see as they walk through your front door. Have you thought about engineered timber flooring? According to the experts at Harvey Norman, it combines a tough, real hardwood surface with multiple layers of plywood, which ensure further structural integrity. It is remarkably strong and resistant to moisture. Here are some things to consider before buying:

QUESTIONS TO ASK When doing your research into engineered timber flooring, ask yourself these questions: • What type of subfloor do you have? • What are the most important features you would like? Is it quality, price or scratch-resistance? • Which rooms are going to have engineered timber flooring and how much will you need?
and finishes available including oak, Australian hardwood such as Blackbutt, Jarrah or Sydney Blue gum, and bamboo timber varieties. HOW WILL IT BE INSTALLED? It can be installed over existing floors including concrete and vinyl. Some engineered floorboards must be glued to each other with PVA wood glue, while other varieties simply click together.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE Like with any flooring you will need to choose a style that is right for you. There is a wide range of colours

Quick makeover If you donâ€™t have a large budget and want to update your kitchen, replace cupboard doors and drawers for a quick visual improvement. Lighting is also an inexpensive way to modernise an ageing kitchen.
Tough tiling If you are looking for an easy-to-clean and durable flooring option for the kitchen, consider porcelain tiles. They are more likely to resist cracking or chipping.

mbellishing interiors with the latest home decoration trends is now easier than ever with the new range of Dulux Duramax spray paint effects. With eight new fast-drying Duramax finishes including Marble, Crackle, Copper Rose, Glass Frosting and Appliance White, uninspiring home accessories can be transformed into striking stylish pieces. According to Dulux Colour Expert, Andrea Lucena-Orr, marble has made a resurgence in recent times and continues to increase in popularity with many accessories and furniture now featuring this sophisticated finish. â€œAs marble is neutral and so versatile, combine it with pop colours and other decorating elements such as timber and metallics to create a stunning focal
point within the home,â€? Andrea says. Available in black or white, the Dulux Duramax Marble Effect can quickly achieve this look and add a touch of luxury to any room at an affordable price. With warm metallic accents also predicted to heavily feature in interiors in the coming year, new Dulux Duramax Bright Copper Rose is ideal for transforming pendants, furniture and home accessories to add stylish flair. Meanwhile, Duramax Frosted Glass Effect delivers a decorative semi-transparent finish that creates an etched glass appearance for privacy inside and outside the home.

GREEN WITH ENVY Could this living room be any more beautiful? We think not. The use of the colour green in interior design is something to be celebrated. From pea to lime and all the way through to gorgeous emerald, there are many tones to utilise. From vintage-inspired styling to a more modern approach, this colour will bring a touch of sophistication to your home.

how to: INSTALL A RECESSED KITCHEN SINK STEP ONE You will first need to cut a hole in the countertop for the sink to be placed. Pencil in the outlines before you begin by placing the sink face-down. Measure the depth of the lip of the sink and mark a second line inside the first, the whole way around. TIP You should install the faucets to the sink before it is secured in place.
STEP THREE Next, place the faucet into the hole in the sink and secure it. Install the hoses and waste assembly. For advice, or directions, speak to your sink supplier.
STEP TWO Drill a hole into the corner of the sink position, inside the inner guideline. Now you can use a jigsaw to cut around the same guideline. Always make sure to check that the sink fits correctly into the hole.
STEP FIVE Check again to see if the sink fits. If you are happy with the result, tighten the clips to the underside of the counter.
STEP FOUR If the manufacturer has supplied a seal you may not need to caulk around the hole in the countertop. Otherwise, complete this task before installing retaining clips around the edge of the sink.
STEP SIX Give the sink a clean before hooking up the faucets.

ow is the time of year to take special care of your lawn. Between the months of September to March, lawn grubs can become a problem in south-east Queensland. Simon Kay from iLandscape suggests the following tips for keeping them at bay: • To detect lawn army worms in your lawn, place a damp tea towel on the turf at dusk for around 30 minutes. Check to see if there are any grubs stuck to the towel. • To control an infestation, there are a number of options. You can leave them for the birds to collect or use an organic or chemical pesticide to control. • After an infestation it is important to fertilise to assist in repairing and aiding growth of the grass.

If you love a particular piece of art or décor, don’t hold back. Home styling should include some of your personality and a few unique touches. This weird and wonderful cow skull is from Innovative Furnishings & Décor.
SUMMER LOVIN’ It’s finally here – summer has officially started. The good news is that there are some great summer trends to suit everyone’s home styling tastes. Keep in mind that summer interiors don’t automatically equate to bright colours. If muted tones are more your thing, consider a pared-back design such as this coastal-inspired living room.

Turquoise, red, guava and white are terrific summer celebration colours.
