Colour Selection

We completed colour selection on Friday 27/3. After our colour browse the previous weekend we thought we were fairly well prepared. Flew through the selections for everything... except the bathroom... it has been so hard to decide how to so the bathroom (partly due to the fact I don't really like beige... chocolate is alright and maybe a bit of cream... but not beige... ). Anyway it turns out I didn't really get my own way with the beige thing but I think it should look alright.

So now for the choices!

Bricks - Boral Mocha (*UPGRADE*)
Mortar - Offwhite (*UPGRADE)

Roof - Sambuca in Elabana profile (Basically black in the curvy profile)
Gutters/Fascia/Downpipes/Windows/Meter box - Jasper
Render to the BED2 robe projection feature wall - Dune
Garage Door - Dune (Madison profile)

  1. omg, this is a stunning colour palette, well done!

  2. Thanks Annie :)

    Have made a couple of changes since. Our laundry now has 'green tea' wall tiles with white overhead cupboards and benchtop. Underbench cupboards are burnished wood. Got the inspiration for 'green tea' from Jo (doghouse on the forum).

    Still have second thoughts about colours almost every day!! Mostly the bathrooms. Not really a fan of the floor tiles we chose, would love charcoal coloured tiles, but I'm sure it will work out fine :)
