’m sure there are many people who love their homes but, given the opportunity, would like to change a thing or two. I’m one of these people. You see, our ensuite has the potential to be so much more. The large space is under utililsed and could do with a little styling. The double sink is great, but needs modernising in the tap department. Updating the showerhead and eventually installing a double shower is also in the plan. It’s one of those projects I’m yet to get around to doing. This is why I love this month’s four-page bathroom feature story. Sunshine Coast stylist and renovation queen Danni Morrison has shared her top 10 tips for updating your bathroom. From style through to remodelling advice, she has got it covered. Also this month, we take a look at what’s hot in homes (we love the organic green trend) and also have gardening tips, style advice and take a look at the 2017 Colour of the Year. If you have a renovation project underway, feel free to share your story with us. Email: cholznagel@ myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY //

WHAT’S HOT? Renovating your home? These six trends are the ones you will want to familiarise yourself with. From kitchen design to technology, these are the looks tipped to emerge as the favourites for 2017, and into the future.

Bricks This age-old building product is making a come-back, but with a modern twist. Architecturally speaking, we will see more exposed brick walls internally and in courtyards that can be viewed from inside the home.

SMART AND SAVVY We will see more integration between appliances and smart technology. Built-in docking stations and home automation such as lighting systems will continue to increase in popularity.

Moss matters Architectural and interior designs have been greening up for some time now but the next 12 months will reveal a strong push towards an organic style. This look goes beyond a living green wall. Drawing on the strong green global movement, designers are incorporating natural elements, materials and living structures into major projects. This will filter down into home design.

WE LOVE! This stylish kitchen is timeless and elegant with a blend of white and dark timber.

Yesteryear The Zillow Digs Trend Forecast says wood panelling, or shiplap, painted in white will pop up more in kitchen splashbacks and ceiling features. This Hamptons style is timeless.

Tuxedo kitchen cabinets Tuxedo or two-toned painted cabinets were huge in 2016 and the style is set to continue, according to Zillow Digs Trend Forecast. We admit, it’s a risky design move but if you get it right, it looks terrific. The key is to choose complementary colours such as navy blue and soft grey or beige. The traditional combination of black and white is also a favourite. For more kitchn trends, see pages 14 and 15.

BATHROOM //

BATHROOM REVIVAL Sunshine Coast interior stylist Danni Morrison knows a thing or two about renovating. In 2015, she and her partner purchased an 18-year-old classic that was in need of some love. With hardwood floors, high ceilings and a tranquil location, the couple are transforming the home into a Hamptons-inspired masterpiece. She has also previously renovated a Warana beach house, and works alongside clients to create beautiful homes. Here, Danni shares her top 10 tips for bathroom renovations and styling.

1. Research and budget If you’ve never taken on a renovation before do some research into the relevant costs associated with the project. From there create a suitable budget (allowing an additional 10–20 per cent extra for incidentals) and stick to it. Whether you’re hiring a builder to commence and complete the entire project, or bribing your tradie mates with beer to help you on weekends, I recommend creating a spreadsheet with all forecasted costs. 2. Select your trades wisely This relates to your builder or your designer. Renovations can be painful especially while you’re still living in the space. You’ll have a demanding relationship before and during the process, so clear communication and mutual respect is key.

NEED ADVICE?

3. The design process Think about how your bathroom is currently utilised, who uses it and what’s important for each person. Using this information write a list of things you like about your existing space and a list of things you’d change. Discuss this information with your designer and builder to create a practical and functional space that you love.

Imagine... NO 4. Plumbing If it’s possible, keep the existing layout of the bathroom for a more cost effective renovation. While it still may be necessary to rework some pipes to suit your new fixtures, like a vanity or cistern, it’ll still work out less expensive than completely redesigning your layout. 5. Compromising and overcapitalising Be rational and reasonable with your decisions. I know you may feel that you absolutely must have those expensive European-inspired, Italian marble tiles because you love them so much. If you have a large budget to fit, go for it. However, think about each choice. I tend to allocate big expenses within my budget on the items that require quality such as taps and getting the plumbing spot on.

within the design process to update a tired bathroom that still does justice to the interior and exterior of you home. 8. Choosing a style: Always think about resale Whether you plan to sell your home in 10 months or 10 years, it’s important not to follow any current trends that will date in time and generate a need for a renovation sooner rather than later.

TIP For more information on the WaterMark Certification Scheme visit abcb.gov.au

9. Selecting décor I love walking into a bathroom and experiencing a sense of luxury like you would in a hotel. It’s easy to create this sort of look and it isn’t difficult to find the right products. Install a new floating shelf and stack rolled up facewashers for guests, add a pretty vase, a hand mirror and fancy brush. For that real hotel feel, fill beautiful glass jars with shampoo, conditioner and moisturiser. Pop

7. Choosing a style: Do justice to your existing home There are two important things to think about when choosing the style of your beautiful new bathroom. The first is the existing style of your home and the second is resale. For me personally, there is nothing worse than walking into a stunning, old Queenslander and seeing a brand new, modern, 2pac bathroom. There are always solutions

INDUSTRY NEWS //

It’s easy BEING GREEN

ntroducing the 2017 Colour of the Year – Greenery. Pantone, the global authority on colour and provider of professional colour standards for the design industries, revealed the choice prior to the new year. For years, the organisation has been

annually delivering colours that reflect global cultural climate. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that “evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying

attributes of Greenery signals individuals to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate”. Pantone Colour Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman says while the Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 – Serenity and Rose Quartz – expresses the need for harmony in a chaotic world, the latest offering provides hope. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape,’’ she says. “Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalise and unite, Greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose. “The tangy yellow-green speaks to our desire to express, explore, experiment and reinvent, imparting a sense of buoyancy. Through its reassuring yet assertive vibrancy, Greenery offers us self-assurance and boldness to live life on our own terms, during a time when we are redefining what makes us successful and happy.”

What Pantone says about Greenery for interior design and architecture: Open spaces in interior and exterior design and floor-toceiling windows allow the green outdoors to become part of a room’s backdrop and ambiance. Adding Greenery through living walls, terrariums, botanicallythemed wallpaper, paint, accent furniture and decor provides respite and breathing space. A Greenery-painted wall or piece of furniture delivers a pop of colour, with the added benefit of creating the illusion of nature indoors.

WE LOVE The soft pastel coral, blue and cream give this patchwork tile a sophisticated style. It’s perfect as a splashback in a vintage-look bathroom, laundry or kitchen.

B bright Be The retro-inspired pattern of the Lava cushion Th features an abstract print of fire and brimstone. fe It’s a great way to inject bright colour into your It’ living room. Visit domayne.com.au liv

MIX AND MATCH If it’s good enough for New York Fashion Week then it is good enough for the home. Mixed patterns made an appearance on the 2016 catwalk, and in true design fashion, they will soon be showing up in homeware stores. Here are some tips to help you achieve the look in a stylish and cohesive way.

Bold bathroom Transform your bathroom with these Italian-made mosaic patterns inspired by the modular design of wallpaper. They are from Domayne.

Our tips • Balance is the key. We suggest you opt for the 50/30/20 approach – 50 per cent of one pattern, 30 per cent of a second and 20 of a third. • Even though you are mixing patterns, use one key colour that appears in each piece to ensure a subtle coordination. • Rugs are a great way to introduce pattern into a living room or bedroom.

GET THE LOOK The Block printed rug mixes ornate blues, greens, pinks and burgundies on natural cotton durry with tassle detail. It’s from arrowhome. com. Source a similar style from local homeware and flooring stores.

Get creative Think about flooring as a way to introduce pattern. Geometric tiles or striped floorboards can set the tone for a space such as a dining room, alfresco area or bathroom. In this image, the designer has mixed patterns in the flooring, rug and decorative, oversized frame.

KITCHEN //

The year ahead My Renovation has scoured local and international stores, suppliers and stylist reviews to find the hottest kitchen trends for 2017.

tip Introducing décor accents is a great way to inject a little colour into a white kitchen without it being permanent. Citrus tones will brighten the room. Bowls of fruit, colourful vases or indoor plants look great. Coloured benchtops From sunburnt orange to marble-look laminate and bright whites, Australian kitchens have been styled on many different colours through the ages. The 2016 trend of blending colour with a neutral palette will continue this year. Toned down coloured benchtops or cupboards will be paired with white, black and grey.

Affordable 2 pack Buy direct from the manufacturer

Black is the new white It’s hard to go past this twist on a timeless classic. It looks sleek, it won’t date quickly and the dark colour is easier to keep clean than traditional white. The key to using a dark colour is blending it with lighting, flooring and surrounding wall colours.

WE LOVE The use of a textured brick wall in this kitchen is the perfect way to take a nice kitchen to the next style level.

Concrete For renovators who love the urban, industrial or scandustrial designs, the kitchen is a great place to incorporate the theme. Concrete benchtops, sinks and floors continue to emerge as a favourite among designers. It is hard-wearing and stylish.

Rounded curves You read it here first. Kitchen benchtops are taking on a new dimension with round becoming the new square. Talk to your local kitchen suppliers for ideas on how to make the curved trend work for your home.

TIPS //

CLASSIC COLOUR Looking for a quick and easy way to brighten up your house? Painting the walls white will give a room a fresh feel.

Dress up the doors Haven’t given a lot of thought to your interior doors? Design features don’t need to be limited to walls, lighting and décor. Dress up a hallway, and create style, with a designer door. Intricate detail, vintage-look or a coloured variety will look great on a bathroom or bedroom entrance.

Reuse and recycle If your tiles are looking a little worse for wear but your budget doesn’t allow for a replacement, consider painting the existing flooring. Clean the tiles thoroughly before masking up and applying a tile and laminate primer. Paint the tiles once they are dry and finish by using a grout pen to draw in the grout lines.

Try before buy Concerned about choosing the right colour for a feature wall? Hang your favourite swatches on the wall, or purchase a sample tin and paint a small section. This way you can spend a few days familiarising yourself with the colours to select the best option.

DON’T REPLACE IT, REFACE IT! We can transform the look of your kitchen by replacing your doors, drawer fronts, benchtop and splashback.

1 LOW COST Pay a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen by keeping your existing cabinetry.

SAVE $$$$$ 2 HUGE RANGE

Choose from a huge range of the latest door styles and colours, plus handles and benchtops.

3 LOCAL BUSINESS

All doors and cabinets are made in Australia by Australian craftsmans and come with a 10 year warranty.

how to: LAY DIAGONAL FLOOR TILES

D

iagonal floor tiles have stood the test of interior design time. Not only do they look great, but the effect can create the feeling of space in a small bathroom or laundry. STEP ONE Like with many renovation flooring projects, the first step is to clean the floor. STEP TWO You will now need to dry fit the tiles to ensure they fit correctly.

SPRUCE UP YOUR OLD CONCRETE And add real value to your home 45 degree angle. Make sure you pencil around the tile so you have a guideline. STEP FOUR Once you are happy with the first tile’s position, use it as a guide to lay out the remaining tiles. Be sure to make an allowance for grout.

OUTDOOR //

Container gardening This gardening technique just never goes out of style. It’s easy to do, easy to care for and is a great solution for smaller homes and apartment-living. Here, My Renovation expands on reasons to take the container gardening road.

Potted colour Potted plants create a focal point and can dress up an outdoor garden, patio, deck or indoor room. Group pots or containers together for a colourful design. Even better, potted plants can be moved easily to suit renovations, gardening additions or changes.

Going up People are mistaken to think that vertical gardens are a relatively new trend. The concept is one that has been around for decades. A vertical garden is terrific as it can be used to cover an unpainted fence or wall. It will also brighten up a dull space.

Great ideas Container gardening lends itself to a lot more than pots and vases. We love this example of thinking outside the gardening square. A vintage bathtub can be painted any colour to suit your home and outdoor surrounds.

RENOVATION

DID YOU KNOW?

The renovation industry on the Sunshine Coast is big business, accounting for the majority of residential building activity in 2016. Published monthly, and the only publication of its type on the Coast, My Renovation is inserted in My Weekly Preview and distributed to 54,000 homes. It is a must if your business is targeting the many thousands of home renovators across the region.

Repotting a plant is easy. The first step is finding a container that is at least one half bigger than the existing. Add potting mix. Place the old pot inside the new one and arrange the mix. Take out the old pot, remove the plant and put it into the new pot.
