Stylemaster, IKEA & More as we enter February!

February 6, 2017

Hello and welcome to February. Yes, already! As promised, in this week’s Blog we’re going to be focussing on interior styling, particularly new trends for 2017 and where to source these products.

Whether you’re planning to build and furnish one of our houses for sale in 2017 or bring your current furnishings up to date there are a LOT of designs out there to choose from. If you’re looking for some ideas, real estate website has released its 2017 trend predictions with some slightly surprising entries: cork tiles anyone? Terracotta is making a comeback, with jewel tones and dark green the colours to watch. Apparently fiddle fig leaves are out (which is good as I didn’t know what they were but have learnt they are of West African origin) and olive trees are in, as in INSIDE the house…if anyone goes with this option I’d be interested to hear how it works out.

If you are planning a build this year but you’re not quite sure about the process then do we have a great tip for you. Queensland’s most awarded builder, Stylemaster Homes has a fresh approach to building a new home with the launch of the Walk Right In collection. A collection of 29 single and double storey designs where all you have to do is move in………. everything is done.

Jeff Piconi, Managing Director said, “Stylemaster has continued to take up the challenge of declining affordability. Having been awarded Queensland’s Affordable Housing Winner in 2015 and 2016, we have further enhanced the opportunity for new home buyers to gain a foothold in the fast-moving property sector with Walk Right In. It’s the no fuss solution to building a new home”.

  • All Walk Right In home comes with exclusive extras as standard:
  • Internal and external move in packs
  • Fixed site costs (up to H2)
  • Steel frame
  • Colorbond roof
  • Render and paint to front façade (where applicable)
  • Driveway, path and porch
  • Caesarstone kitchen benchtops
  • 1200mm wide X 2040 high hinged designer front door
  • Alfresco entertainment area
  • 2.0KW Solar PV Cells
  • The inclusion of carpets, tiles, air conditioning, dishwasher, light fittings, turf to front yard, letterbox, clothesline, flyscreens plus more………

Stylemaster will even assist to pay the rent while the home is being built and all homes come with the Quickbuild guarantee from 14 weeks to practical completion.

Working in conjunction with North Harbour, Stylemaster will be offering a vast selection of fixed price house and land packages for all budgets.

In addition, Stylemaster’s esteemed multi-award winning designer Sharon Piconi has offered her expertise and experience that has distinguished the company as the leaders of Style. Sharon has meticulously specified and prepared colour pallets and interiors that guarantee your home will be on trend and sure to maximise individual lifestyle requirements. The signature façade options will ensure your home has ultimate street appeal.

And if you do buy one of our new homes for sale you’ll be pleased to know that furnishing your home got much easier last year when IKEA opened a new store at North Lakes (15 minutes down the Bruce Highway from North Harbour).

IKEA has just released its new collection for 2017 which, as is their niche, specialises in clever ways to maximise space and save homeowners time. As they say, “IKEA PS is for the fiercely independent. For free-thinkers who refuse a work-eat-sleep-repeat life and who give convention a wedgie. Not asking for permission or approval. Choosing freedom and the possibilities that come with it.

“And that is exactly who this IKEA PS collection was designed for. Because who better to appreciate a folding sofa that can hang on a wall, or a pillow that becomes a quilt, or a self-watering pot that helps keep unattended plants alive for two weeks?”

Whether or not you’re interested in giving convention a wedgie you can view the 2017 IKEA collection here.

Something helpful IKEA also does is to offer their IKEA Family Members (free to sign up) free workshops and events, excellent for those interested in interior design. For more information visit the IKEA website.

Also at North Lakes (and Morayfield) is the newly impressive Kmart. Offering cost-effective furnishings to get your home looking fresh and fashionable, Kmart is hard to look past if you want that new look without splashing the cash.

And if you’d prefer to see this year’s trends enacted in person you can’t go past our many gorgeous Display Homes. We have 35 Display Homes from 14 local and national builders, each professionally styled. The Display Village showcases the houses for sale at North Harbour and is home to several award-winning designs.

We’ve had our first winner in our new promotion! As we mentioned last week, anyone who completes a Registration of Interest form in our Sales Office from now until Sunday 26th February will go in the weekly draw to receive a $100 Fuel Card to spend at BP. If you’ve previously visited North Harbour you’ll be aware that the local BP fronts our land on the Bruce Highway (between Exits 146 and 150) which makes filling up very handy.
