Styling tips from our Truganina display homes


We’ve really enjoyed sharing styling tips from our display homes at our Clyde and Mount Duneed in recent blogs.
This week, we’re inviting you to join us at Westbrook Estate in Truganina to step inside two of our most popular home designs – the Toulouse 43 MK2, and the Banyan 29. 

Toulouse 43 MK2

Style: Modern Elegance 

Characterised by its warm and sophisticated aesthetic, the Modern Elegance style is built around luxurious textures like velvet and leather. A timeless design style, Modern Elegance balances bold accents with soft finishes for a classic look with a contemporary twist.

Tips to recreate this look: 

  • Opt for a luxe colour palette that centres around jewel tones like navy and ruby red, complemented by gold and black accents 
  • Play with contrasting textures in your decor to create moments of softness – a chunky, upholstered bedhead in the master suite adds comfort, pairing well with sheer curtains 
  • Add warmth to tiled areas with dark timber grain joinery or furniture
  • Keep bathrooms minimal, letting your fixtures and finishes make the statement  
  • Create the feeling of separate zones in open plan spaces with a large, chunky rug in the living area

Banyan 29 

Style: Modern Comfort 

The perfect low-maintenance style, Modern Comfort takes a pared-back approach to decor. Championing natural textures and neutral tones with pops of colour, this design style will stand the test of time.

Tips to recreate this look: 

  • A relatively neutral palette throughout the home of white, grey and black will age gracefully and allow for you to change up your decor over time 
  • Greenery also pairs well with this palette and softens your home 
  • Build off natural timber flooring and 100% wool loop pile carpet by adding other natural materials and textures, such as tan leather armchairs or boucle cushions
  • Introduce bright colours through artwork or cushions for accents that don’t overpower the overall look 
  • Timber cabinetry against timber flooring can sometimes be too much – break up the look with a grey laminate to your base cabinetry or island, and use timber for your overheads 
  • Keep the kitchen light and bright to make the most of natural light, maximised in this home with a clever skylight
