Interior inspiration to unite a natural aesthetic and a vibrant lifestyle

02 March 2023

A decision to buy into Lakeside is one that makes it easy to build in a way that draws inspiration from your own life and your love of modern architecture and interior design. 

At Lakeside, a Stockland community set within the lush surrounds of Gledswood Hills,  homeowners enjoy access to the finest builders to curate a beautiful home and lifestyle.

With the opportunity to create a bigger home, choosing timeless architectural features and quality materials and finishes can elevate your family’s comfort and pleasure.

Here we share insight into how to achieve that timeless quality, while applying some of the recent design trends to showcase your tastes and eye for design.


Natural tones and reclaimed materials

Natural materials and colours are being embraced more in recent interior trends, with a focus on sustainability and warmth.

It’s easy to be inspired by the natural surrounds of Lakeside and bring that emotional connection into your space to create a feeling of closeness.

From fixtures and fittings to statement furniture pieces, homeowners are selecting materials like reclaimed timber, recycled leather, and rattan, which is a fast-growing cane.

Diverting from the black matt finishes popular in recent times, handles and taps are using brass again. The imperfect look of textural ceramics, wool, and organic rounded shapes welcome a light, warm feeling to the home.

Natural colours like beiges, caramels, terracotta, and clay overlay different textures of throws, cushions, and upholstered furniture.


Long lasting quality is the backdrop for liveability

Hard-wearing and functional can also mean stylish and sophisticated. There is a raft of luxe materials now available that compliment this philosophy.

The most used area in any home is often the kitchen and bathrooms. By choosing tough materials that have a matt finish which are fingerprint proof, can make cupboards easier to clean and more resistant to scratching.


Lighting used as statement features

Lighting can work much like statement furniture pieces or architectural features. In fact, the two can work together.

Find your focal point in any room. Windows or a fireplace can draw attention as can a mirror or a favoured painting.

Pair those elements with lighting that casts the right shadows or encourages the eye. These can create a mood and make places more habitable.
