2 Storey home design 2015: The lounge room

Posted February 28, 2015

Your living space is the centerpiece of your home. As a double storey home builder in Perth, we understand how important it is to create a beautiful and functional lounge room in your home. Your living space should be aesthetically pleasing but, most importantly, it should provide a comfortable area for your family to relax in! At Novus Homes, we have a talented team of in-house designers who have researched some great living area design trends for 2015!


Continuing with colour trends of 2014, beautiful and sophisticated basics like clean whites, smoky neutrals and shades of grey help to create a warm and elegant space. Think about creamy, white walls enhanced by a bold, colourful art piece. Or a gorgeous, grey plush sofa with bursts of orange and blue injected through the use of cushions and a throw.

Natural Inspired Features

Patterns and textures derived from the natural world, such as fossil shapes, wood grain, floral patterns, bone, and bark help to create a calming and relaxing space. These beautiful natural materials combined with more industrial materials such as metals or concrete look elegant and stylish. Think about pairing polished wooden floors, a teak coffee table, a woven rug and metallic accents, such as copper pendant lights, to create an absolutely show-stopping space.


Handcrafted items are making a huge comeback! Items made by skilled craftspeople are prized for their handcrafted nature and “authentic” feel. A few items traditionally or exotically crafted by an expert can make a great centerpiece for your lounge and can also be an excellent conversation starter.

Go Green

Green design and construction that is environmentally conscious is currently very popular, and for good reason! As more people decide they want to be more eco-friendly, they’re getting rooms and houses insulated and constructed in different ways that conserve energy and resources. One of the benefits of building a home in Perth is the ability to use current materials and construction techniques which maximise energy efficiencies!
