Lana’s Forever Home
The Luxaflex team were thrilled to be a part of what is another epic Three Birds Renovations makeover. Faced with the mammoth task of renovating Lana’s family home, the Three Birds Renovations trio pulled out all the stops to transform Lana’s family house of 15 years, into her dream forever home. Inspired by Lana’s beloved Bougainvillea, open plan living and the overall essence of tranquil Santorini, the Three Birds team took on what was their biggest challenge to date.
As could be expected the vision, budget and decision making criteria for this renovation, was notably different to previous Three Birds Renovations flip house projects. As explained in ‘How to create your forever home the Three Birds Way’ renovating to ‘stay’ is a different challenge to renovating to ‘sell’. The buying and decision making process for window coverings is also influenced by whether the purchase is for a flip or forever home renovation. Blind type, fabric and colours are best kept to a neutral colour scheme for flip houses to ensure they appeal to the broader market. The blinds selected for a forever home however, are typically less conservative, reflecting personal taste and lifestyle. Luxaflex Window Fashions has a large range of custom made solutions to suit any décor or budget with endless options from the Designer, Classic and Living series.
Check out Lana’s stunning forever home and the various Luxaflex window covering solutions chosen to suit the lifestyle of her and her family in their very own modern Mediterranean villa.
Luxaflex PolySatin Shutters were used in Lana’s Mud Room, Ensuite and Guest Bathroom. Australian made from a Polyresin compound, these stylish shutters are highly durable and impervious to moisture- guaranteed not to blister, peel or fade making them the ideal solution particularly for the wet areas in the home.
We love the sheer Roller Blind and Duette Shade combo selected for Ruby’s room. This unusual pairing shows you really can have the best of both worlds! The Duette Shade selected in Architella blockout fabric, offers complete privacy and light control of an evening, whilst the sheer Roller Blind creates a whimsical ambiance by diffusing the daytime sun.
Similarly, the pairing of blockout and translucent fabric opacities in Heath’s room will serve dual function and ensure easy light and privacy control.
The addition of PowerView Motorisation to the Luxaflex window coverings in Lana’s Media Room, grand stair case, family room and kitchen was an exciting Three Birds x Luxaflex first! The choice of motorised control will ensure Lana and her family enjoy ease of operation, precise light and privacy control, added customisation and convenience. This intelligent technology will also allow blinds to operate with a simple press of a button, tap of a mobile device or by scheduling scenes that will automatically activate throughout the day. With PowerView Motorisation, the perfect addition to any forever home, the Luxaflex blinds in Lana’s house are not only stylish but smart too!
Light control was a crucial part of the window coverings brief for Lana’s Master bedroom. For this room the ideal window covering solution would allow the natural light to come through during the day and completely darken the room at night (and of course for the occasional sleep in), all while being super easy to operate as it would be used every day.
Luxaflex Duette Shades was the ideal solution for this room as the Architella blockout fabric offers complete room darkening and zero view through when closed and the pleated fabric design meant they could be stacked tightly up into the headrail to allow light through when open. The choice of LiteRise operation means the blind can be simply opened, closed or moved to any position in between, and all by hand!
