One of the best things to do for interior inspiration is to go look at show homes. They often have the highest-end additions included and luxe finishes which can help you look at design with fresh inspiration. Looking around these houses can also help you work out what you don’t like. But most of all, they can invigorate you to do something different in your home, like adding hanging wooden planks, bird-nest light shades or studded upholstered chairs to take restrained and plain to textile-rich and eclectic.
Here are some pics from my stroll around the new Insignia Estate in Ballarat – one of the many new planned neighbourhoods being build in the area.
