Home Living : June 12th 2012
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, June 12, 2012 MB ADVERTISING FEATURE UNIQUE SHUTTERS ARE A PERFECT FIT Details: Call 02 8858 0980, go to shuttersaustralia.com.au or visit their workshop and showroom at Unit 5, 9 Packard Avenue, Castle Hill. SHUTTERS Australia recently manufactured a very large set of exterior Rialto Aluminium Shut- ters for one of its customers on the Central Coast. The job was significant in sev- eral aspects -- the balcony was 15m above ground level and the fin- ished product was very large at 7.2m wide and 1m high. The custom-designed shutters were made in the company's Cas- tle Hill workshop and feature durable aluminium and powder- coated paint to cope with the exposed position at Umina Beach. ''Our customer specified they wanted a 22-degree louver pitch to allow some light in, but block the sun during the hottest times of the day, as well as stop bad weather,'' said Braydon Inwood, Proprietor of Inwood Blind and Shutters Australia. PRODUCT GUIDE THE PRETTY PAPERWORK Janita Singh Serenity now . . . Buddha screens Hydrangea tablecloth. Apple Heart has matching canisters. Paper-cuts use traditional methods. TODAY'S home decorating goes back to our love of nature. And why not --- with many of us pinching our pennies, extravagant living is a luxury we can't afford. But this doesn't mean compromising on style. Luckily, economic caution has inspired crafters to design beautiful, simple, and stylish products to decorate with, and most of them are inspired by nature. The blue sky, earthy and green outdoors and colourful flowers are forming part of home decorating and there are innumer- able ways of bringing nature indoors. Here's some inspiration. Paper-cutting is an ancient folk art which can be traced back thousands of years. Traditional paper-cut artworks were de- signed to evoke the happiness of festivals or lively spirits of children and animals, while demonstrating an affinity with nature. It contrasts with modern methods, which are now laser-cut or done by machinery. H&Cs (hardwick & cesko) signature Pa- perCut artworks expertly cut the finest rice- paper using traditional methods -- a scalpel, a human hand, love and patience. RRP from $79. Details: hardwickandcesko.com- .au or downthatlittlelane.com.au/sellers/ hardwick-cesko With a style reminiscent of Scandinavian designs of the 1960s, the Apple Heart range has universal appeal. These smart hom- ewares suit both contemporary and country style kitchens and pantries, and includes matching tea, coffee and sugar canister sets. RRP from $19.90. Details: 1800 65 11 46. If it's about creating serenity in your home, everyone seems to own at least one Buddha head, statue or painting.
