A modern take on a classic interior

The latest project by Windemere Interiors is this divine double storey display home in the Brisbane suburb of Rochedale.

The "Modern Classic" theme is a modern twist on the classic black and white palette, with layers of neutrals in various textures and colours with pops of black.

This light and airy family room features a two way fireplace with the alfresco. Layers of cream and taupe create a warm and inviting palette with pops of charcoal and chevron for depth and interest.

The charcoal floor tiles in the main bathroom have been laid in an interesting herringbone pattern, making the white freestanding bath and vanity pop!

The upstairs open child's retreat has a comfy lounge and entertainment unit…perfect for those lazy DVD days.

The gorgeous master bedroom features an ensuite, walk in wardrobe, retreat with plush layerings of soft furnishings.

A little girl's dream bedroom...

And one for a little boy….

For the teenager or overnight guest.

Want to see more? You can visit the display at 6 Hillcrest Street, Rochedale.

Ensuite Envy

This sophisticated and modern ensuite, one of Windemere's latest projects, is in an award winning display in Brisbane's West.

The ensuite is an open plan bathroom with double vanities, shower and WC. The space is located between the master bedroom and walk in wardrobe. 

Cool, monochromatic tones and pops of colour make this ensuite a contemporary yet timeless feature of the home.  Extra storage was created by installing shaving cabinets above each vanity. The colour scheme lends itself to pops of colour in towels and decoration creating a versatile yet timeless ensuite.

Large format 900mm X 400mm tiles on the floor and walls to the ceiling make the space feel larger and more open. The modern, concrete look tiles are clean and industrial. Feature “penny round” tiles on the shower floor are tactile and add a pop of colour.

Design Challenges - The ensuite is contained within a moderate space, however was modified from the standard plan to include an enclosed WC, feature recessed niche shelving to the shower and additional shaving cabinet style storage behind the mirrors.

Windemere's Urban Living Theme

Filled with warmth and character with pops of bold colour, Windemere Interior's  "Urban Living" interior theme has been a talking point amongst visitors at the "Cebel" display home by Adenbrook Homes in Port Macquarie.

Taupe coloured walls and warm timber look floors create a neutral canvas for the industrial inspired decoration. Layered textures of linen, sisal and canvas are combined with industrial metals and curved plywood to create a fascinating and stylish interior.

Designer Lindy Evans is the creative talent behind the Cebel's unique and eclectic interior. Inspired by modern industrial warehouse apartments, the theme has been modified to create a comfortable yet striking interior.

"The urban living theme at the Cebel is bold with many layers, creating depth and character, however it's an interior that can be easily tailored to any family's personal taste," said Lindy. "The eclectic mix is one that can be created from a fusion of textures and colours from natural materials, plastics and metals in colour drenched shades."

Pops of colour are evident throughout the home, from the vintage posters on the walls to the Aztec inspired colours in the cushions and rugs. 

The theme is clean and modern with pops of colour that suits the casual coastal lifestyle. With elements of upmarket style, the space is still practical and very comfortable to live in.

Retro Fusion

This theme is fun, with bright colours, wild designs and an overall sense of "flair" because retro-design requires such a bold approach. It also requires a certain personality to pull it off. There's nothing laid-back or casual about design and decorating with this theme. It is loud, busy and most definitely "funky".

Retro Fusion interior design incorporates bright colours and bold patterns. Clean, streamlined and modern, shiny materials such as vinyl & laminate also references to the past.

Furnishings are normally constructed with plastic, plywood, or moulded fibreglass. Lines are usually rounded or curved, in unique kidney or bubble shapes. Art and sculptures are typically bold and unusual, leaning more toward abstract pieces rather than simple landscapes and still-life. Windemere uses a blend of stark white, chocolate and bright orange to create this bold theme.

Retro Fusion will inspire you to create a look that combines classics and contemporary design. Past and present can sit stylishly together. Remember, everything is bold when you're decorating with the Retro Fusion theme so don't be afraid of textures and colour. The more the better.

Modern Classic - A new twist with white on white

Serene and stylish, Windemere's latest work is titled "Modern Classic".  A modern take on classic style, this serene and calming theme uses white on white for a space that is warm and inviting.

Interior designer Lindy Evans has used layers of neutral tones, playing on textures instead of colours and patterns for depth and dimension.

Classic furniture in clean, light timbers are paired with soft furnishings in textured neutrals for elegant and graceful style.

What do you think of the new theme?

Glitz & Glamour in Mackay

We love a bit of glitz and glamour here at Windemere! We've just completed the interior of a home in Mackay with this theme, definitely a standout in the North. We've had lots of fabulous feedback.

Plush pile carpet, designer Arte wallpaper and shimmery fabrics in tones of gold and copper create a decadent background for mirrored furniture. Warm, glossy hues create a luxurious atmosphere.
