Picture this… a finely constructed and well-appointed abode—the kind built with oak framing and reclaimed slates; stocked with Miele mod cons, Catherine Martin upholstered chairs and an Android app-controlled lighting system — does this remind you of how you’d like to furnish your own home? If you only knew where they sourced all those design ideas…
Cue Grand Designs Live, the official home show of the hit Australian and UK TV series Grand Designs and Grand Designs Australia. The place to find all the inspiration and ideas you need for your ‘castle’ whether building, renovating or redecorating.
At this ultimate home show you get to tap into the experts from design, interiors, architecture and landscaping. UK Grand Designs host, Kevin McCloud, will be returning to Australia to launch the show in Melbourne along with Peter Maddison (his Australian counterpart).
In Sydney, Maddison will be joined by landscape legend Jamie Durie, along with Selling Houses gurus Andrew Winter and Shaynna Blaze.
There are 200 quality yet affordable exhibitors within four innovative quarters to explore: Grand Interiors, Grand Building, Grand Outdoors and Grand Kitchen & Bathrooms. You can also bring your plans along to seek advice from industry experts who will be offering free one-on-one consultations on all aspects of building and renovation.
Once you’ve gathered your plans, pull in favours left, right and centre from friends and family and together, take up residence in a caravan (optional), and set to task on your own grand design.
