Interior Design School for Your Home

Most of us know what we like but don’t know what it’s called. It’s a tricky catch 22 of design school being something that only designers have been to. All of us are able to walk into a space and know whether or not it appeals to our sense of aesthetic, and so visiting display homes can be a great way to get an idea for what you’re into. In the world of design there is rarely the idea of the wrong choice, it might just be a choice that only appeals to a small number of people. With that in mind, know that the best way for you to design your own interior is the way that feels the best to you. In this article we will discuss some current and age-old design trends that could be key to your home’s interior.


Minimalism in art and music appeared post World War II but as an interior design trend, it is as old as dwellings themselves. The minimalist style involves stripping everything back to its bare necessities. In interior decorating it is often represented and distinguished by the choice of superior materials that generate a feeling of modest luxury. It is about doing more with less and creates a focus on simple geometry and lighting.

Feature Pieces

Feature pieces are eye-catching and mood-informing components of a building or its interior. Feature pieces could include things like feature walls, where a single wall is painted an entirely different and usually quite striking colour while the rest of the room is neutrally painted. Other feature pieces could be a stained glass window or a piece of art presented in such a way that visitors and indeed residents cannot visit that part of the house without confronting it.

Sometimes a feature piece can be centred in a house such that every room leads you towards it in some way, or like a stunning sunlight, it could seem that every part of the house is born outwards from the feature piece.

Comfort is Everything

This is one interior design trend that is never going to get old. Some might say a person’s house is their castle, or their sanctuary, and many humans are certainly creatures of comfort and build their housing interiors accordingly. It can be extremely welcoming for guests to know that they too can take off their shoes and put their feet up when there are multiple foot  stools in the living room and comfortable lounges dotted inside and out. Other décor pieces that make a house homely are cushions, rugs and lamps.

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
