Colouring In

I did a little bit of a reproduction of our front elevation so that I could bring all of our colours together and play around with some different combinations too.

I was able to find swatches online for the wall colour "Dulux Limed White" and the gutter and fascia, "Colourbond Ironstone", but had to do a bit of a guesstimate on the Kava roof tiles.  The roof colour here is pretty close I think, but they might be a touch darker.  On screen never looks quite right though.

The original plan was to have Ironstone gutters and Dune fascias, but it looks a bit busy that way and we've both decided to keep it all Ironstone.

Here it is.

When the Dune was still the fascia colour I also played about making the uprights for the portico Dune too.  Again, a bit too busy, and if we ever decide to make a feature of those in the future it's not too difficult anyway.


Covenent approval has come back

Contracts in and received and countersigned by Coral

Waiting on some contract variations which we should see by the end of next week


Organise final tile selection appointment

Organise finishes meeting

I think we are pretty much sorted on the finishes.  I know which timber laminate floor I like the best, need to go over that again this weekend with Stace.  We are thinking Beige Royal Half for the walls inside, but I saw a few pics online of Beige Royal Quarter and am wondering if the half is a little too dark.  Anyway, will most likely be one of those two.  Everything else I think we have sorted.

Stacey found a lounge suite she liked.  She told me it's called the Alyssa from Harvey Norman...

Here's what I can find....

This is the first time I have seen it and I'm a fan.  She said the one she saw though was in a tan leather.  From memory I think she said $1999 for the 3 and 2 seater which is pretty good!  Looks super comfy, and good legs, that I'm sure could be easily replaced with taller ones to jack the height of the couch up a little so that it's nice and easy to get on and off!


  1. Hmmm, that elevation looks right in the post, but when you click on it the roof and Ironstone elements kind of go green!?!?!

  2. House colours look lovely:) We have that exact lounge but in chocolate brown (needed to be especially kid friendly!) Excellent value for money!

  3. We have a 7yo and 5yo and a Jack Russell and have been thinking white the whole time, but I think we a slowly 'chickening' out!
