Last month we opened the doors on two new single storey display homes at Harvest Estate in the Lower Hunter. The Quantum 23, a brand new design from the new Advantage Series, and the popular Livingstone 26 from the Smart Living Series.
Our designers have shared with us their colours, themes and styling hints for the interior decorating in each design.
“For the Livingstone 26, the ever popular Scandinavian style was chosen as the main theme when selecting all the furnishings. The furniture itself is intentionally simple and clean in white and oak which leant itself beautifully to the simple lines of this style. The upholstery and bed linen was selected predominantly in greys and whites with the accents of soft pinks and mint greens providing a fresh touch. The artwork, rugs and decorative items pull the whole scheme together keeping within the simple colour palette whilst providing the perfect amount of interest.”
Kitchen benchtops in Essastone “Dusk” and Cabinetry in Laminex “Chalky Teak 009 Natural finish” with matte white tile splashback and white & ash pendant lights combine to compliment the Scandi theme.
The Stockholm Squat Flair Pendant light and tray table both in natural wood and the use of Taubman’s Endure “Gazebo White” interior paint set the Scandi tone upon entry.

“A different approach was taken with the décor of the Quantum 23, the hard finishes here are fairly simple, so there was the opportunity to play with pattern and colour here to lift the finishes. A nod to the tropics and the eclectic style of the far east was used in this house whilst still keeping it contemporary. A mixture of woods in dark tones offset with white furniture was used to provide contrast and interest. The colour range of blues from indigos through to teals was used in the fabrics in a beautiful array of pattern. These colours and patterns were then layered with equally interesting artwork, rugs and linen that all aid in creating intricate layers of interest.”
Kitchen cabinetry in Laminex Burnished Wood and Pantry in Laminex Polar White. Kitchen benchtop in Essastone New Basmati. Southampton Light Pendants in Antique Black were chosen for the kitchen and meals area.
