The aim of the apartment was to showcase the upcoming development to prospective residents and create a welcoming and colourful apartment with a contemporary feel.
Baptist Community Centre (BCS) are constructing over 200 welcoming and colourful apartments with a contemporary feel and a community centre as part of ‘The Gracewood Community’ development in Kellyville.
The brief involved designing a display marketing apartment within an existing house on the Kellyville site. The aim of the apartment was to showcase the upcoming development to prospective residents and create a welcoming and colourful apartment with a contemporary feel.
Resene Half Sisal (soft beige) is the general paint colour throughout and provides a neutral base to enhance the brighter colours utilised in decorative finishes and soft furnishings. Darker neutral tones in a custom colour match and Resene Cougar (warm taupe) were used in the lounge and bedroom respectively as feature colours. Resene Chalky, a warm sunshine yellow, was selected for the foyer, kitchen and marketing suite to create a welcoming feel for prospective buyers entering the display home.
Splashes of colour can be seen in the furniture, soft furnishings, artwork and decorative items throughout in midnight blues and grassy greens, while the kitchen and bathroom finishes are in neutral hues. A thick wool residential carpet was specified to create a feeling of warmth.
The end result is a beautifully furnished display apartment that will help prospective buyers visualise their future homes, and will greatly assist BCS in marketing and selling the Independent Living Units.
