Design Smarts Unlocked

Your look is everything. When it comes to your new Smart home that is. Sure, structural integrity, sustainability, location, and investment potential are all important too, but hey, our other smarties are onto those things. We’re here to talk D-E-S-I-G-N.

Knowing what looks good is one thing, but designing an entire home from scratch? Tough. Perfectly matching colour combos and fixtures? A mystery. Selecting one of the Portal’s 10 pre-curated looks? S-M-A-R-T … and super fun.

Our design smarties have spent endless hours putting together ten ultra-stylish selection packs. What does this mean for you? Your fave aesthetic at the click of a button – Coastal Hamptons your vibe? How about Native Outback or Rural Retreat? Maybe minimalism is more your style with our Simply Scandi and Mod Chic curations. #endlessinspo

How does it work?

Well, all the design heavy lifting has been done for you – a selection of (approx. 45)  colours, fixtures, and finishes have been meticulously chosen to match each of 10 pre-curated looks. Your job? Login to your Smart Portal and explore them. Then, chose the one that feels like you.

 

Annnd, then what?

Once you’ve selected ‘the look’ for you, run through the remaining selections – these will be the ones missing the green tick – so they’re 100% #done. Making all of these important choices now will ensure your Prestart meeting can be a Prestart party! And by that we mean, as fun and easy as possible. Which is why we always say, preparation is everything.Speaking of, don’t forget to visit our supplier showrooms to select flooring and tiles, visit our showroom BGC Home, and mark up your electrical plan with any changes you may want before prestart.

What’s my lewk?

Not sure which one is so, so you? Give them all a looksie. We’ll give you a breakdown of each one so you’ll be clued up in no time. Smart tip: trust your first instinct – this is where you want to feel comfortable (while evoking as much friend-envy as possible), so if you can imagine living life amongst the design, it’s the right choice.

1. Coastal Hamptons:

The timeless architecture and crisp, clean interior style is inspired by white sandy beaches, clear powder blue skies, and dreamy natural light. You could say the Hamptons style is ideal for the coastal Aussie lifestyle. In fact, it fits like a (neutral, white) glove.

3. Industrial Warehouse:

Featuring standout elements such as exposed brick, moody colour palettes and edgy concrete floors, industrial-inspired interiors are designed to make a statement from the moment you step inside.

5. Native Outback:

From balmy nights spent enjoying Aussie sunsets with fam & friends to cosy days indoors bathed in natural light, the Native Outback collection fills everyday with beaut aussie outback vibes.

7. Simply Scandi:

A palette that offer stylish minimalism, keeping it simple, fresh & welcoming with its interior choices. Simply Scandi design is all about simplicity and minimal consumption because less really is more.

9. Oceanic Bay:

Encapsulating the sand and sea, Oceanic Bay beams with an abundance of natural light and a coastal colour scheme of blue hues, grey tones and crisp whites, providing an easy-breezy energy to reflect the beautiful coastline.

2. Biophilia:

Referring to our love of nature and the importance of wellbeing & self-care, the Biophilia style envelopes the sensation of being part of the natural environment in an increasingly urban landscape. It’s the perfect palette for warm climates and focuses mainly on bringing the outdoors in.

4. Modern Chic:

A palette that ages like a fine wine, offering a truly elegant style & oozing a sense of sophistication. Starting with a blank white canvas – let bold tones, gold accents and luxxy artwork do the talking.

 

6. Rural Retreat:

Get the feel of a wildlife sanctuary in your own home, inspired by calming colours, rustic materials and elements. It’s a perfect way to create an idyllic Palm Springs-Esque escape.

Chic yet understated, this design adds a sense of allure through the way of black-on-black shades. Monochromatic design is effortlessly chic and very bold, offering a simple way to make a statement.
