When it comes to luxury living in 2019, Porter Davis' Plaza and Vancouver display homes at Highlands are hard to compete with.

As leaders in interior design, Porter Davis World of Style experts share insights into why these houses offer home buyers modern, yet functional living on an impressive scale. 

Designed with families in mind, The two story Plaza offers buyers an open floor plan, with cleverly placed zoned living areas including family, kitchen, living and dining areas. This design taps into a top trend for 2019, which will see buyers seek homes that enable all areas of the home to work better together. Design experts are referring to this trend as streamlining, which both the Plaza and Vancouver offer.

Contrastingly, the Vancouver offers families a single story design with all bedrooms running alongside the right wing of the house, to ensure separation and privacy between day and night.  While open plan will continue to be popular this year, ‘zoning off’ distinct spaces - as the Vancouver does - is expected to be an upcoming trend for 2019, to achieve spatial division. 

Other impressive features of the Plaza include an oversized entertainers kitchen, which leads out onto an Alfresco area. According to Porter Davis, 2019 will see an increased focus on the flow between indoor and outdoor spaces, with outside no longer being considered separate, but rather a beautiful extension of the home.  Feature flooring, including Chevron and Herringbone patterns or large format tiles will aid this transition to help bring the indoors outdoors.  

A heightened luxury look and feel is set to become more prevalent in Australian homes in 2019. Both Porter Davis’ Plaza and Vancouver display homes set the benchmark high with a games room, walk in robes - in every room - at the Plaza and a family area, rumpus, galley and walk in pantry at the Vancouver.

With both houses, Porter Davis offers a range of facades, with exposed brick tipped to be a hot trend in 2019.  By visiting Porter Davis World of Style, buyers will get the chance to work with a team of qualified interior designers and choose interior design styles to match their taste.  The Plaza on display at Highlands features a Long Island theme, whereas the Vancouver boasts a Copenhagen theme.
