Inspired by the calming cues of the natural environment, our inhouse Design Consultant recently compiled a stunning mood board called ‘A walk through nature.’

 

Worthing Homes Design Consultant Kimberley Worthington crafted a flatlay with popular COLORBOND® steel colours such as Dune® and Surfmist® to demonstrate just how well a range of contrasting materials from nature can come together to give a pleasing aesthetic.

COLORBOND® steel has played a key role in the design of many homes, being an iconic brand for building materials not just nationally but worldwide. Loved by many Australian builders, architects and home owners, COLORBOND® steel have awed us all with beautiful homes for well over 50 years.

Kimberley says, “With a mix of calming colours, rugged textures and raw materials, the juxtaposition of all design elements is in focus. The contrast between the hardness of the stone and softness of the fabric is much like a walk through nature – a peaceful yet contrasting experience.”

“By using a neutral colour palette to create a calming environment and bringing together smooth and rough surfaces to develop a flora-inspired palette, we can mimic nature in its truest form. Natural lighting and impactful finishes play a huge part in this.”

A home is much like nature, in that it consists of multiple rooms and living spaces for different purposes. By incorporating the same elements of nature – timber, stone, flora and yarn, we can bring nature into each element of the home to make it a warm and inviting place.

 

Designing a home is both science and art

Having an eye for colour and design involves knowing how to blend together many different colours, textures and shapes in a way that’s cohesive. Considering there are over 4000 elements involved in building a house, it can be quite a feat to help the client visualise exactly how their new home will look.

This is where the expertise of our designers come into play. From the floor plan to the façade and interior design, our team of experts are not afraid of trying new things. While designing the structure of the house is a standard practice, determining the look and feel can be more experimental.

Kimberley adds, “A home is much like nature, in that it consists of multiple rooms and living spaces for different purposes. By incorporating the same elements of nature – timber, stone, flora and yarn, we can bring nature into each element of the home to make it a warm and inviting place.”

After all, that’s exactly what clients want in a dream home: a place that’s inviting for all. Whether you love neutral palettes or bold and brash hues, we can help you come up with an individualised colour scheme for your home.

We also guide you through the selection process, from the roof materials, bricks and garage doors right down to electrical fittings, carpet, door handles and tapware. With a high-quality range of inclusions to choose from, we’ll present something that is unique to you.
