Get the Look: Episode 1 Houses

From a coastal feel to French Provincial style, find out how to get the look of your favourite houses as featured in Episode 1 of 'I Own Australia's Best Home.'

In this first fabulous episode the team explore a variety of homes from the bush, to the beach, to the burbs. Tim visits a beautiful 40 acre property at Federal in the Byron Bay hinterland. Nick stays in a uniquely Australian ‘shed’ on the South Australian coast at Waitpinga and Gillian rediscovers gracious living in a sandstone mansion in Sydney’s Mosman.

- In a larger house, use little highlights of colour to accentuate different areas

  • Get the Look: Coastal Shed, Waitpinga, SA

- Keeping the interiors raw adds an extra element of interest.
- Plywood offers a warm and cosy feel to any room.
- Make the most of your views by adding a window seat. 

  • Get the Look: Sandstone Mansion, Mosman, NSW

- Use white paint to create a washed out, soft look.
