Our external colour selections will hopefully give the house a warm, modern look. There were a few developer guidelines that we had to keep in mind, but none of them restricted us from choosing the colours and materials that we wanted.
Bricks - Boral Horizon Naturals Brown Terrain (with rolled ironed mortar in off-white):
Roof Tiles - CSR Monier Horizon Profile in Barramundi:
Feature Render Colour 1 - Dulux Pale Earth:
Feature Render Colour 2 - Dulux Yarwood:
Rear Cladding - Dulux Snuggle Pie:
Gutters, Fascias, Downpipes, Flashing - Colorbond Monument
Aluminium Window and Door Frames, Flyscreens, and Garage Door - Colorbond Dune
Double glazing throughout (mostly to meet energy rating requirements).
Front Door (Double) - Corinthian Madison PMAD104 in Colorbond Dune with Translucent Galzing:
Garage Door - Gliderol with Tuscan Profile in Dune (sectional panel lift):
Balcony Tiles - Lifestyle Saltbush Textured 400x400 with Travertine Grout:
Some of our front facade colours together:
We really liked Brown Terrain so choosing our bricks was quite easy. We didn't really think about it much more. The other colours on the front facade were inspired by some of the display homes we saw. Yarwood is a very dark grey, it can sometimes look dark purple. This will be used on a feature of the facade so hopefully it won't look too dark. The lighter garage door in Dune should provide enough of a contrast.
I love the name of the rear cladding colour - Sunggle Pie. It actually is a very warm and fuzzy colour. We wanted the rear cladding (which covers the rear section of the top floor) to blend in nicely with the bricks, and Snuggle Pie was a good pick without making it look like we were trying to match the brick exactly but couldn't.
Hopefully everything works well together...
