Colour Forecast

We are here to guide you in finding the perfect colour combination for your new PJ Burns Builder home. Let’s do it!

Dulux’s four forecasted styles for 2019 are all about creating your happy place and living your best life. When the world is so busy and the influences so many, these beautiful colour palette’s will help you filter out the noise and focus on what matters.

Breathe and simply be in the moment with Dulux’s wholeself palette

Do you feel like your brain is in constant overdrive? It’s time to switch off the smartphone and clear out the mental clutter. Wholeself helps us to create a calm, distraction-free zone where we can dial back the volume and reconnect with ourselves.

Create a timeless and elegantly styled home with Dulux’s legacy palette

What is the legacy we leave behind? Every day we tread the tightrope of time, pulled forward by hot, new trends and futuristic technologies. But there’s no ignoring our past, the ultimate symbol of elegance and time-honoured tradition. Legacy brings the past and present into timeless harmony with an eclectic mix of influences.

Dulux’s identity palette empowers you to show your true colours

It’s time to break out of the mould and show us the real you. Identity speaks to the radical, non-conformist in us all. It empowers us to live on the wild side and express our true inner creative. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

Heal our rifts with nature with Dulux’s repair palette

Repair helps us revive our relationship with nature and embrace a more holistic and ‘circular’ way of living. Our comfortable, carefree existence begins to fade into the past, as we adopt a wabi-sabi sensibility that appreciates the beauty in faults and flaws.

5 ways to bring your new home to life!

We have created a list and narrowed it down to five things that we encourage you to consider, when designing and planning each space of your new PJ Burns Builder home.

Number One: Let light in.

There are so many styles of windows + creative ways to let light into your new PJ Burns Builder home! Exposed trusses with a feature skylight will enhance your living space and provide so much character, while lovely louvre windows are hard to pass with their so many benefits #feelthebreeze!

Remember, thoughtfully positioned windows will give your home a feeling of space + connect your internal living areas seemly with the outdoors + your natural surroundings.

Number Two: Bring in the natural.

Adding a touch of natural fibers instantly brings natural warmth and texture to any space. Think Timber, Wool, Leather, Linen, Cotton and Metals in a fresh colour palette. Organic pieces of handmade furniture are beautiful additions, not to be overlooked and can be incorporated as coffee tables, light fittings, hanging chairs, bed heads or even lounges.

Designer Tip: Visit our ‘Hanging Chairs’ Blog Post for more design inspiration to incorporate organic pieces into your new PJ Burns home.

Number Three: Utilise your walls.

If you are short on floor space, utilising your walls not only adds interest, it also improves the functionality of your space. Depending on your style, consider a feature brick or cladding wall to add texture + character to the room.

Designer Tip: Frame your cherished photos and arrange them on your walls. You can create a gallery wall with a combination of memories + artwork or simply hang one or two statement pieces.

Number Four: Add something green.

This season is all about styling your home with lots and lots of greenery, bunches of flowers, hanging plants or potted plants, the options are endless.

Greenery can be incorporated into your new PJ Burns Builder home design by adding a custom made shelf or two to your bedroom, or some open shelves to your kitchen instead of overhead cupboards, the options are only limited by your imagination, and budget.

Keep in mind, not only do plants improve air quality by removing toxins, they instantly add warmth and soften an internal living space.

Number Five: Focus on flooring.

When it comes to deciding on the flooring of your new home, we are noticing a push towards Vinyl Plank Flooring, and it is not hard to see why. Durable and stylish, our clients love this standard PJ Burns Builder inclusion and appreciate the variety of modern colours to select from when it comes to making final colour selections.

Designer Tip: A rug can dramatically change the look and feel of a room and can give that instant warmth by defining the space. A rug can be the finishing touch to bring a room to life, or you might use it as a starting point, working cushions and artworks back, whichever you choose, with so many options you will find a rug that suits your style and lifestyle. Remember, proportion is everything when selecting a rug to fit your space.

Style Files – Industrial Style

One of the most exciting parts of building your new home is selecting your design & style, for some people this comes really easy & others it can be a little more difficult. Whichever side of the fence you sit on, we have a team of experts here to guide you through the process.

One of the familiar styles we are seeing continuing on into 2018, is the every evolving Industrial Style. With its versatility to suit different styles of homes & ways of life & the option to go all out soho loft style or just incorporate certain elements into your home decoration, it is easy to see why this trend is carrying on.

Industrial style is fun & really easy to accomplish, for example, the exposed beams. Using non structural ceiling beams for appearance only, or exposing your timber trusses, transforms the interior & provides an added warmth to any space. You can paint them contrasting or even use a metal beam to add Industrial character.

Adding a face brick wall as a feature to your kitchen is another way to give the Industrial feeling of order and disorder, or think creative and paint your walls in a Concrete Wall Treatment, like Matt & Kim from The Block, who applied the polished concrete using a cement glassface product, or alternatively a specialist concrete look paint finish can be applied, which doubles up as a work of art!

Our Sales Manager, Courtney Burns who’s style is Industrial (and as much of it as possible), has incorporated a few different elements into her Sunshine Coast beach home, see below. We caught up with Courtney, who describes Industrial Style as.. ‘In a world of aiming to be perfect, the raw finish of the industrial style is refreshing, I compare it to imperfect perfection, where organised clutter is acceptable.’
