Now, I know its not strictly in Banyule but I did go to visit friends in Hurstbridge recently who have just bought a great little 60's weatherboard & stone house. So much potential!! The existing living room has a great bluestone fireplace, solid timber paneling - and some slightly less great mock timber paneling. The timber windows and beams have a strong architectural presence in the interior and some of the light fittings are really fun!
We chatted about furniture styles & layout, artworks and internal paint colours and I came up with two paint colour schemes for them:
|Option 1 - Leave solid timber paneling natural, paint mock timber paneling in a mid-tone & paint beams dark|
|Option 2 - Paint solid timber paneling in a dark colour, paint mock timber paneling & leave beams natural.|
