Instagram has become a hub of inspiration for aspiring home renovators and new builders – here are some tips and tricks on how to achieve some most popular modern home looks online.
THE MONOCHROMATIC COLOUR SCHEME
With its monochrome colour scheme and elegant brass wall lights, Catalina Burradoo has the quintessential Modern Farmhouse look. Situated in the NSW Southern Highlands, the home was built by Tasker Constructions and has a striking black and white exterior synonymous with this style. Axon™ Cladding has been used for a simple, clean facade, painted in Dulux 'Snowy Mountain' Half Strength and Resene 'Black'.
THE SCANDINAVIAN BARN LOOK
This Scandinavian Barn-inspired home in South Australia, built by Aaron Martin Construction, mixes modern and traditional for an elegant and timeless look. Stria™ Cladding in Dulux 'Klavier' has been used vertically for a sleek, contemporary look, with a rustic fireplace and accents of stone, brick and timber adding warmth and textural interest.
THE MODERN COASTAL LOOK
The Modern Coastal look is designed to make the most of outdoor living, and this home in Dunsborough, Western Australia is no exception. Built by Phil Keller Homes, the look starts with Linea™ Weatherboard made for the classic coastal style, with plenty of spaces for alfresco entertaining including large sliding doors opening out onto a deck and barbeque area.
THE MODERN HAMPTONS LOOK
This bright, light-filled Queensland home has all the hallmarks of the Modern Hamptons look. Weatherboards are essential to any Hamptons exterior, and here Linea Weatherboard has been used in Dulux 'Mt Aspiring' to create a fresh, crisp white palette. The home was built by DB Building, who have maximised an outdoor lifestyle with a covered deck area.
THE MODERN MIXED MATERIALS LOOK
The Scandinavian Barn Look is brought to life with Axon Cladding - its smooth finish ideal for this modern style. A steeply pitched gable roof and light-filled interiors complete the Scandinavian Barn look, as well as a contrasting colour palette of dark and light. Warmth is introduced through minimalistic furnishings in natural materials such as timber, cane and rattan.
THE OVERARCHING MODERN LOOK
This Modern home in Melbourne, Victoria, combines cladding, brick and timber to create a one-of-a-kind facade. Built by Secon Constructions, the mixed material design incorporates the site's existing home, with Axon Cladding in Dulux 'Blackwood Bay' giving the exterior a modern makeover.
A COASTAL HAVEN

THE MODERN COASTAL

Constructed by Lime Building Group, the look starts with the long, clean lines of Linea Weatherboard in Dulux 'Monument' paired with Scyon Easylap™ vertical Cladding.
THE CLASSIC HAMPTONS
With its circular windows and charcoal door, this home in Brisbane, Queensland is a standout when it comes to the Classic Hamptons look. Built by Herringbone Investments, Linea Weatherboard in Dulux 'Endless Dusk' is offset with crisp, white trims that are synonymous with the Classic Hamptons look.
