inspired exteriors

From Habitat plus - decorating and colour trends 2021

We've been seeing more and more pops of colour being introduced to home exteriors, adding refreshing curb appeal among oceans of neutral weatherboards

Whether it’s a section of creatively-coloured cladding, a front door in an eye-catching hue or a collection of freshly painted pots lining your front walkway, it often doesn’t take much to make your home a standout.
