7 Ways To Add Personality To Your Home

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]1. Add Colour

The basic rule of using colour is the ratio 60:30:10. Which means 60% of a dominant colour, 30% of a secondary colour & 10% of an accent colour. But of course it’s your home so it’s totally up to you! You can add personality by adding coloured cushions, rugs, vases, artwork.. the list is endless. Choose different textures and patterns to create interest and character.

2. Share your Travels

Why keep your travel memories hidden away in the cupboard. Put them out on display for your friends and family to see. And I’m not talking about the tacky souvenirs that you come back with and think why did I buy this!? I mean the beautiful artwork, sculptures & artefacts as these pieces can create an eclectic style and become a talking point amongst visitors.

3. Wallpaper

Your New Living home will have the perfect neutral palette which you can add your personal style to. Adding wallpaper is a fantastic way to add colour, pattern and texture to your walls – eg the popular Seagrass wallpaper as seen on The Block.

4. Indoor Plants

They can make a massive difference in the overall look and feel of your home by bringing life into any room. Try large potted plants in entrances or blank corner spaces, small potted plants on side tables or benches and a current trend right now is hanging pots. Make sure you choose plants suitable for indoors. Flowers instantly brighten up a room, unfortunately, they don’t last long. Silk or ‘real touch’ flowers are a great alternative, you can find them online for a lot cheaper than at a homewares store.

5. Unique Furniture

Scouring the second hand/junkyard shops can be the best and cheapest way to find unique, antique or vintage furniture. You can keep your existing furniture and just add feature pieces. Re-purposing old furniture by sanding, painting or reupholstering is a great way to add a personal touch to your new home.

6. Create a Photo Wall

Choose your favourite photos of people and/or places and have them printed to the size of your chosen frames. It’s a great alternative to art and the perfect weekend DIY project. Printing black & white photos and hanging them in black or white frames can look very effective.

7. Lighting

Make a statement with lighting by installing pendant lights over your kitchen bench, dining table, hallways etc. Table and floor lamps are not only practical but can also be a style feature for your bedrooms and living rooms.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

We would just like to say a massive thank you once again for all your help with the house. We moved in on the weekend and we are loving it ! So thank you for being part of the team that made our dream come true.

Belinda, Jordan Springs, Acacia 4 Urban

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

Debbie & Brian - Jordan Springs 

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH. 

D.E, Marsden Park 

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -

Monika & Mayur, Elara
