Our colour selections

So we have completed our colour and electrical appointments, after a lot of trawling through the homeone forum and display homes and interior design books and i think we have a pretty good idea on what our colour scheme is...earthy tones to then add splash of colour here and there...

It's not the best photo but here is our selection for the kitchen and bathrooms:

All cabinetry (kitchen/galley/laundry/powder room/ensuites) - natural finish burnished wood
All benchtops (kitchen/galley/powder room and ensuites) - Caeserstone in Osprey with pencil round edges and 40mm drop on kitchen benchtops)
Glass Splashback in main kitchen - standard glass with a raspberry red (Can't remember the exact paint name)
Tiled splashback in galley and laundry - cat 1 long gloss tile (sorry i can't remember the exact names as don't have the spec sheet with me.  I'll edit once i have them)
Floor tiling in entry/cloakroom/powder room/dining/kithchen/pantry/laundry/storeroom/living/ensuites - plateau matt (cat 1 tile)
Carpet in study/lounge/theatre and all upstairs bedrooms and hallways - inspirations range brown earth
Feature tile - the one in the top right hand corner is an indication of the colour only, it's a metallic shimmer brown/gold/silver, we chose rectangle shape as feature tile in ensuites 2-4 with 2 stripes in the shower and on the splashback. In our ensuite we have the bottom right tile (metallic deck 600 x 900) in our shower on all walls, splashback and on the bath hob. 
Wall paint - Flokati

Hi Mel, I noticed your link on the HomeOne forum. We're doing a knockdown rebuild in Mt Waveley, we loved the Waldorf but it was a bit out of budget in the end. I think (98% sure) we're building the Talise with Henley. Started out with another builder, should decide this week. Love your selections, especially the splashback, just gorgeous. is our story

Hi Kate!
Thanks for the comment!

The Waldorf ticked all the boxes for us and as we figured this is going to be the forever home now kinda went out on a limb money wise :(...hopefully it was a good gamble!

HAd some more movement on our block today so have to remember to update the blog.

Thanks for following and I'll add your blog and have a read too...we can compare knockdown frustrations...hehe...

I love your colour selections, your tile is a very warm coffee colour and the splashback will look amazing! Can't wait to see it completed.
