When planning your dream build at Denman Prospect, the fun part is thinking about how the rooms will look, the colours and style you will go for. Building from scratch is your opportunity to create the home you’ve always wanted, while allowing the interiors to complement the stunning surrounds in the heart of the Molonglo Valley.

Show-stopping windows

When you’re gazing out to magnificent views from your new home in Denman Prospect, make that a feature with serious windows that show it off to its best advantage! Floor-to-ceiling styles will capture the outdoors and allow it to act as an ever-changing artwork. Choose from timber frames to break up the expanse of glass and add interest, or sliding bifold doors that ensure the outdoors feels like part of the room. You could also consider ‘framing’ the view with a dark or timber window frame to contrast with white walls, or vice versa if dark walls are your vibe.

Bringing in light from many aspects, this home uses windows as a focal point to bring the outdoors in.

The divine is in the details

The divine is in the details

Bringing in detail adds character and creates interest, and can be done at building stage or later on. Depending on your style, you can make a feature of coving and panelling, or keep it ultra modern by using wide architraves and skirting boards. Timber and other natural materials can be incorporated in unusual, sculptural ways, even as beams or columns to divide a large open-plan space or mark out different areas.

Be inspired by this breathtaking outdoor entertaining area, perfect for your future Denman home.

Keep it light and bright...

Scandinavian style is ultra liveable, fresh and clean, with uncluttered spaces and an abundance of natural light giving a peaceful feel. It’s the perfect backdrop to the greenery and views outside at Denman Prospect, with a feeling of coming home to a restful sanctuary. Scandi style is all about comfort, function, simplicity and clever use of space. Pale timber adds to the light, natural look, and windows are generally kept simple and bare, perfect for making the most of that view!

Industrial designer and Canberra local, Tom Skeehan, has mastered the fresh and functional Scandi look.

Layers of moody grey, deep navy, dark green and rich black are enjoying time in the limelight as a way to create a cocooning retreat from the world. Black kitchens and bathroom joinery is making a welcome change from all white, and it’s such a classic colour that we can’t see it dating any time soon. Black can be balanced with white or timber accents for a clean, modern look, and combined with darker wood tones, these deep, shady colours can create a soothing haven at home with a classic, sophisticated feel.

We’re loving this dark and moody kitchen from The Design Files.
