Home Living : August 9th 2011
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, August 9, 2011 3 HOMELIVING Hitting the roof Colour in . . . shale grey roof. The roof is one of the largest fixed elements of a home and deciding its colour can be a challenging process. The profile and pitch of the roof, as well as the location of the house, should be considered. The roof style also affects the general impression of a home. A steep, gabled roof for example will have more aesthetic domin- ance than a skillion roof. BlueScope Steel colour consultant Janne Petrie says it is important to ensure the colour does not work against the building. ''Where the roof is a dominant feature of the home it is important to ensure the colour does not overshadow the entire aesthetic of the building, so it's best to opt for a mid- tone colour,'' she said. The second consideration is the home's surroundings. Ifitisinaruralarea surrounded by bush or green landscape then muted tones are the best choices. In a coastal environment, it's best to capture the seaside ambience. For inner city areas where heritage buildings are the norm, more traditional roof colours are required. And if the home is in a modern suburban area a more striking roof colour may be the best option. Once the colour has been chosen, to ensure it works effectively with the rest of the home, repeat the same colour in smaller amounts in up to three locations, such as the mailbox, garden shed or fence.

ANA TALDE HEAT your home this winter with the ultimate in gas and wood fireplaces from Cheminee. Cheminee Philippe's gas and wood fireboxes are solid cast iron with a classic, elegant and minimalist design to suit all interiors. Director Litsa Cremen said gas fires give a subtle heat, perfect for small areas such as sitting rooms. ''A brand new gas unit takes five to six hours to install, while installation of a gas conversion takes two to four hours,'' she said. Gas conversion fireplaces allow you to keep the original style of the house and offer the beauty of an open fire. Heat larger rooms with Cheminee's slow combustion wood fireplaces. These wood fireplaces are fitted with glass doors making them safe to use. Mrs Cremen suggests burning good quality iron bark wood as it does not produce any smell and lasts all season. For a stylish alternative to electric heaters, choose from Cheminee's range of VioFlame Occasional Fires. These freestanding units use an ethanol denatured alcohol -- a safe and renewable fuel. VioFlame Occasional fires create warmth, mood and ambience in any indoor or outdoor area. Details: phone: 9564 2694 or visit www.cheminee.com.au advertising feature Bld.
