At a loss with how to use colour in your new home or renovation? Brickworks Building Products has collaborated with editor in chief of Home Beautiful magazine and House Rules judge Wendy Moore to create a collection of inspiring mood boards. They are designed to help people understand how to use colour when renovating or building a new home, in particular the façade.

The versatile and contemporary palettes encapsulate Brickworks' building products, with ideas for every aspect of the build, from main and feature bricks to screening, paving and roof tiles.

“At Brickworks we continue to push the envelope in the building manufacturing industry with an unwavering dedication to innovation and forward thinking," said Brett Ward, the company's marketing general manager. "We are dedicated to creating materials that create beautiful environments.”

BLUE MOOD: This colour palette utilises reflective surfaces and dark shades to create a sense of glamour and is therefore ideal for more formal spaces.

The unique colour schemes include:

Naked Ambition

Millennial pink grows up with this soft and feminine style. The blush hues carry undertones of caramels and creams, with luxury arising from the warm metallic, pink marbles and soft terrazzo. This is a style that can form itself to suit any room and will create an inviting sense of calm in open-plan living or master suite.

Blue Mood

Designed to create a mood and atmosphere that is intimate and enveloping, Blue Mood is perfectly suited for formal lounge rooms and luxurious master suites, this colour scheme can be decorated with over-scaled furniture and aged timbers, where the grain is on show and fabrics such as velvet and natural linens play with the light.

GLOBAL PATTERN: While this works perfectly with blues, teals and aquas, it looks just at home with mustard tones, ochre and chocolate.

Global Pattern

International influences are now part of everyday life and Global Pattern has been carefully curated with a personalised approach, patterns and textures with soft edges, simple lines and accents in aged brass bringing a sense of style established across generations. 

The colour schemes are part of Brickworks' larger initiative, The Style Inspiration Project, which includes further inspiration, such as soft teals, deep marine tones and the textures of natural stone that work perfectly with the tailored settings of Hamptons homes.

Working alongside Australian trend forecaster Kim Chadwick, the collections of eight colour schemes unites hues that work well as a suite, making it more straightforward to choose colours that suit your home.

The palettes range from lighter, more neutral collections with whites and greys, creams and browns, all the way to reds and greys and a darker palette of black pewter and charcoal.

The colour schemes pair monochromatic and contrasting colours to help build an overall theme that can be used in any space.
