The colour scheme

September 1, 2010

After a really quick attempt on photoshop I've come up with this...

Monier traditional "Barramundi" roof tiles, Jasper render over garage with a Surfmist garage door.  Dulux "Orange Wood" render on the portico.  Jasper front door and windows.  Surfmist gutetrs and fascia + main render.  "Delhi Bronze" stacked stone to the front projection.

We've chosen the surfmist render to make the stacked stone feature POP rather than blend.  This is all $$ dependant of course.  If the stacked stone is too exxey, we may render the projection in orange wood, replace the surfmist render with jasper, the front door to surfmist and the windows to white.

Here's our kitchen colours...

Cupboards on island bench = Wenge.
Benchtops including waterfall edge to island = Osprey.
All overhead cupboards & far wall cupboards = white, including perspex feature overhead.
Splashback= Orange Wood
Walls = Lexicon 1/2
Floor = brushbox laminate boards

And bathrooms in varying themes of...

Powder room with bench in Espresso with the feature tile framing the mirror.
Bathroom with a Wenge cabinet, white tiles to all walls including the bath hob with one shower wall in the feature tile.
Ensuite with the benchtop in Espresso, cabinet in white, shower walls white, a feature strip behind the taps on the shower and continued as the splashback through to the spa.
The floor tiles for all wet areas is a dark chocolate (the image of it is yuk!) which wil be taken up the bath hob, so that room should look really lush.  Hopefully the dark colours won't dominate.  It does have a huge north facing window and the walls will be Dulux Lexicon 1/2 which is almost pure white.

We'll bring the orange through to this rooms with towels and accessories too.  Subtely though!!

Love your colour scheme Reinsey. You are so much further advanced in selections than I am, but hey then again you are going to start before us!!!!
Still frustrated about that! So many new people joining the forum now, it will be a hell of a party! So jealous!
