There’s no better feeling than escaping to your very own rural retreat after a long day at work.

Being able to close the door and take time to relax and unwind is an incredibly rewarding experience, which our collection is designed to amplify. 

One of the hallmarks of this design theme is the use of rustic materials throughout, including exposed brickwork and feature stone walls. This can be used to great effect in the exterior design, creating a sense of prestige from the very first glance. To help the feature walls pop, dark tones such as Colorbond Monument steel in black, or Harmony roof tiles in Austral black are highly effective.

As a rural retreat, relaxation and tranquility is key – and this can be found in every room throughout the home. The soft Seasoned Oak Laminex flooring works beautifully with the Wattyl Moody White and Wattyl Scribbly Gum paintwork, with feature artwork and accessories helping to add colour and vibrancy to the space where needed.

The feature Laminex Seasoned Oak cabinetry sets off the Essastone Limestone Cape benchtops, while the feature splashback offers an attractive focal point.

The alfresco deftly combines concrete aggregate flooring with feature stone walls and wooden accents to add further colour and style. With the right combination of cosy accessories and standout greenery, it’s the ideal year-round space.

If the idea of creating an idyllic escape in your own home gets you excited, our Rural Retreat collection has so much potential to offer.
