How to Prepare for your Style Studio AppointmentPublished on May 16, 2018
- First Home Owners,
The location of your dream home has been chosen, the preliminary plans are done and now it’s time for the really fun part of the building experience – your Style Studio appointment! Whether you’re into rich, bold colours that make a statement or a soft, organic look to create a relaxing escape, at Hamlan our team of expert style consultants will help make your vision a reality.
At the colour consultation at our head office, our style consultant will be on hand to guide you through the options for the internal and external finishes of your new home – including colours, fittings and fixtures. Here, you’ll see samples of many of the products that you could soon be seeing in your own home.
This is where the fun begins! Perhaps you’ve always had a clear idea on what you want or maybe you have NO idea. Do you want to follow the latest design trends? Or maybe you want to go for a more traditional, timeless look. Doing some research on the different trends and styles can really help you find clarity.
Visiting display homes is one of the easiest ways to determine what look appeals to you. But if you don’t want to leave the house, jump online. Browse sites such as Pinterest and Houzz to save photos of furniture, colour combinations or beautiful rooms that inspire your style. There’s also countless, blogs and websites on home interiors to browse – all you need to do is look.
Find inspiration anywhere, whether it’s at a homewares store or at your favourite cafe – take a photo to build your own mood board.
If you’re not tech-savvy, magazines such as Real Living, Inside Out and Home can give you great ideas on colour and style.
Another great source of inspiration is furniture – whether it’s something you already own or key furniture pieces that you’ve got your eye on. Take into account the colours, tones, textures and materials used to make those pieces and apply it to the colour palettes and materials you could use in your new home. Whether it’s a table, chair or even a lamp – furniture can serve as a hero piece that helps determine the character of a room or even an entire house.
Armed with your vision and our interior experts, you’ll be well on your way to walking into the home of your dreams. For more information, call us on 1300 426 526.
