    LOVE this room. Can you tell me the brand of the paint for wall? Thank you.


  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations

    Thanks! I think this may have been a trade brand of paint. Although to get this effect you can use any brand of paint from mid range to top of the line. All the mid to high quality brands these days will stay on your wall. The top quality ones will be whiter and will have better wash and wear properties.

    What color paint was used for the walls?
  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations

    The paint was 'white' straight out of the can. It doesn't really matter what brand (the main difference is the higher quality paints will give you a brighter white). Using white straight out of the can ensures there are no subtle hues that change with the light and it gives you that crisp 'art gallery' feel. I hope this helps!

    Would the mattress not ''slide'' around on top? Or is it fixed in another way? Love the design by the way! :)
  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations
    No the mattress doesn't slide. In fact it has just enough slide to make it easy to make the bed but it doesn't slide by itself. The mattress is quite a dense weight that is evenly distributed so it weighs itself down and stays in place.

    Corners and edges are always tricky with laminate flooring. We have used 2 different solutions in this property. On this wall we used aluminium angle but that worked because the edge was white plasterboard. In other areas - which might be a better solution for you - we used actual timber strips which we stained to suit the colour tones in the laminate flooring. If you can pick up the right tones the timber should disappear in the overall look. Another suggestion would be to not use one vertical strip of timber perhaps break it up into the size of the planks in the laminate flooring and that will help it disappear. Good luck with your project!

    It is literally any brand of paint and the white that comes straight out of the tin with no tint. Most paint companies have a pretty similar base white that they start with and as they have no tints in it they will give this effect. Good luck with your project!

    You can certainly keep this look with carpet in your room. The tones that i feel would work would be a light carpet like the colour of the rug in the picture or a deep warm grey. Although if you select your flooring for the wall first then match a carpet to one of the tones in that, then that will also work as you will have a connector between the two!

    Costs will always depend on the products you use and whether you have to pay for the labour. You can always get clever with materials! Work out the flooring cost per square metre for the wall and your labour costs if any per hour and that is a good place to start for your budget - Good Luck with your project!

    These floating night stands were made up by our team of carpenters. They are simply MDF board painted white. They are solid so can take any weight and also have a more natural texture look to them which works with the rest of the room. If you show this image to a handyman or carpenter they would be able to make them up for you.

  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations

    The process of secret nailing is that the nails are shot at an angle
    through the tongue before the next board is laid. The nail is therefore
    hidden by the next board. You also use glue to ensure a great solid finish. Our team use a nail gun for this process. I hope this helps!

    Standard doorways are 800mm, a tighter doorway is 700mm, a gap to walk through can be 600mm. Put something tall 60mm from a wall and you will see how it feels. If you can make an extra sexy look in your room and are happy with a tighter walkway i would go for it!

    We did have to treat the edge of the wall as I didn't want to see the edge of the boards. We used a very small piece of aluminium angle that neatly tucked around the flooring and gave a finished look to the edge. Using the aluminium finish ensured that the piece disappears - you don't even notice it. If you have a look at the photos of our South Coogee project, on the very last photo you will see a photo of the wall edge and aluminium trim. I hope that helps!

    It doesn't matter what colour you start with as long as you work with colours and tones around it that complement it you will get this result. Pick up a tone in one of the materials you are working with and then replicate that somewhere else in the room and you have created a connector. As you can see in this image there is actually a variety of tones in it, we have picked up the tones from various items in the room and used them again. This enables you to broaden your pallet but still create a connected easy on the eye room!

    This rug was purchased through a general rug retailer at a local supplier that isn't there anymore. It is a shag style rug although I did make sure that it was a very thick and soft texture as there are some that feel very 'man-made fibre'. Another trick we used for this rug is that we purchased 2 small rugs and had them sewn together to get the right size - it was cheaper than buying the rug the next size up. All in all it was a great result.

    The wall paint is white straight out of the can. I like the base white as it has that 'art gallery' crisp white. As much as you can create beautiful off-whites, the second you add a tint it will start to throw different tones in different lights. If you like a crisp white - then straight out of the can is a great solution for you!

    This is a "faux" fireplace. We wanted to create the feeling of a fireplace so we built the surround and found the perfect toned whitewashed pieces of timber to lay in it. We have also placed candles in glass jars around the edges of the timber so you can light them and they create the sense of a calming fireplace. The space has been a great success.

    This white is simply straight out of a can! When you are looking for that crisp "art gallery" white it is best to use "white" straight out of a can. Although you can create beautiful tones with tint, the second you add tint it starts to throw different colours in different light. Any brand will do - often the more expensive brands will have the crisper white, although if the budget doesn't allow it the trade and economical brands will do just as well.

    Honestly I wish I could remember which product our painter used, it could have been Dulux, it could have been Taubmans. Actually it doesn't matter too much because the quality of paint will be fine either way these days and the finish will look great either way. Using the premium brands like Dulux will give you a crisper white and will wash and wear better. But if budget is an issue, then the trade or home brands will serve you just as well. I love the crisp finish the white produces and will definitely use it again myself!

We make it out of an MDF base for the mattress and MDF box underneath that is large enough to support the bed and not have it tip, yet small enough to give the appearance of floating. Creating more visual floor space under the bed makes your room feel bigger! I hope this helps!

    Thanks! the big secret is that it is White straight out of the can! I like it as it gives a beautiful crisp white your furniture and decorations can play off. Once you add tint into white it throws different colours in different lights (which is great if you are looking for a tone). But if you are looking for a crisp white, then straight out of the can is for you ... it doesn't even matter what brand!

    We designed the furniture ourselves and had our team build it out of MDF. The bedding was from a local bedding store (a waffle style cover) teamed with pillows and a throw we had previously.

    For the best continuity it would be great if you could use the same product, although from a cost and ease of install it would be easier to use a laminate flooring. My only other thoughts would be to make sure the tile doesn't have a cold look/element to it as you want your bedroom to have a soothing warm feel. Also if you are going to use 2 different products just make sure they have elements/colours that connect them - they don't have to match exactly but they must have a connector. I hope some of these items help you work it out!

    Thanks Pippa! The fireplace and bedside cabinets are simply made of MDF and painted! I drew up my design and I had our team build it for me. The easiest thing to do is to get a carpenter to make it up for you. It is not expensive, it is the perfect fit and it looks great! The firewood inside is a nylon string line of Driftwood, you purchase them in set lengths, in different widths and colours. I found it in a homewares store but to give you an idea i found this one (albeit shorter lengths) on ebay at http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BALINESE-DRIFTWOOD-WALL-HANGING-HOME-DECOR-BEACH-7-/181172267269 for you to start your search. Good luck with your room!

    No it is not a real fireplace. I like to call it a faux fireplace! It has some beautiful timbers in it and some candles in glass to give it that fireplace feel!

    The ceiling was dropped as we had to work a way to get the reverse cycle air-conditioning into the best position in the room. Bringing the vents to this side of the room meant better cooling and gave us the opportunity to frame the bed. This photo makes it look bulkier than it is, most people think the bulkhead was part of the design with the bed not a functional bulkhead.

    The window is a commercial section aluminium frame with a picture window in the centre and 2 awning windows on the side. Any aluminium window manufacturer will be able to make these for you.
