Cara first realised she wanted to be involved in interior design when she was about 15 years old when she would help her parents with styling tips while they were renovating their house.
She thrives on providing expert guidance to our clients because homes are where we spend our lives – and she’s passionate about creating spaces that people love coming home to.
Rebecca has completed an Advanced Diploma of Interior Design and is currently working towards a Bachelor of Architecture. Her favourite room to style is the bathroom, as she loves how tiles let the homeowners’ personality shine through.
She loves to see how excited people get when encouraging them to embrace what they love to create what will be their dream home.
With an extensive background in building and interior design, Hannah is the perfect person to lead the Colour Showroom.
Hannah offers great advice for new home buyers, “Enjoy the process! Try to remember the feeling you got when you decided to build – that giddy excitement, keep that alive throughout the process.”
Here’s a few of our interior designers favourite styles that they use to help guide our customers through the colour selections process.
Simple, pared back and contemporary, the modern industrial scheme is popular for a number of reasons, not least of which is its versatility. Architectural design and modern polished finishes combine in this mostly monochromatic scheme with timber flooring and neutral accents. This colour scheme is designed to allow the client’s unique style to shine through in their furniture, artwork and soft furnishing selections.
Prized for its sophisticated beachy feel, this scheme was created to appeal to the classic Hamptons-style buyer. Featuring soft greys and classic style floor tile and tapware, this design scheme conjures up visions of luxurious seaside holidays. Complement with textural furnishings and statement lighting fixtures for a relaxed home that makes you feel like you’re always on holiday.
Striking, modern, and slightly more masculine than our other selections,, the contemporary luxe colour scheme is characterised by simple clean lines and open, uncluttered space, appealing to those who are seeking a more industrial vibe in their home. This scheme is easy to adapt, with strategic colour substitution of lighter timber available to those wanting more of a Japandi vibe.
One of the most frequent requests we get in the Design Lab is for a home that feels ‘light and bright’. The architectural and design features in most Arden homes mean that this is a vibe that’s spectacularly effective, and quite easy for us as designers to help our clients execute. Light timber floors and cabinetry are offset by light, bright neutrals and chrome fixtures for a real Australian coastal feel.
