Hallways, lounge and living room walls are amongst the busiest areas of any home, and as a result are susceptible to collecting dirt, dust, grease and finger marks. It is important that these surfaces can stand up to constant wiping, especially if you have little ones.

Taubmans Endure Interior is engineered with Nanoguard. It has an interlocking molecular structure that works to create a protective shield, so stains can be wiped away without compromising the quality of the paint or damaging the finish on your walls. It provides excellent mould and mildew protection throughout the life of the paint so you will have a cleaner and healthier home environment. This is why Taubmans Endure is the only interior paint with a 15-year guarantee*.




Most people think it's the weather that breaks down exterior paint. It's actually dirt and pollution that works its way into the surface of the paint, weakens it, and then the sun, wind and rain finish it off.

Taubmans Endure Exterior is engineered with Nanoguard that creates an interlocking molecular structure so dirt is less likely to stick and surfaces are easier to clean. It's tough, repels dirt and resists the elements such as baking heat from the sun, howling rain, and even snow, which is why it has a 15 year guarantee*.

John is a Visual Artist and Body/Mind Therapist, originally from the Philippines. He studied Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines before moving to Australia with his family in the mid 1980s where he majored in painting at East Sydney Tech and continued to explore his art and its impact on his personal growth and development. In the process, his vision evolved from an egocentric to a more ecocentric paradigm.

John lived the life of an artist, chasing the “vision” while struggling to belong to the commonly accepted rationale that was expected of a family man. He joined group exhibits, sold his works, illustrated books and literary journals while engaging in utopian pursuits that fitted in with his personal cosmology.

Much has changed since then as John continues to live and experience his dream.

Shaynna selected pieces from John’s most recent collection to help decorate the Darwin property.

Since 1996 we have committed to exploring and understanding the difference between House and Home. This started with the conscious decision to call our company Loot 'Home'wares and not 'House'wares.?

Your House is a structure built to shelter you from the elements and keep your belongings safe. Your Home is a quintessential member of your family. A living extension of your own personality, where you gather with your loved ones to celebrate all the best moments of your life, from a simple meal to the wildest of parties.??

Our aim is to provide our customers with the most powerful gift we could find - Choice.

Huge ranges of colours, sizes, materials and concepts. Allowing you to mix and match, to create your own palette, your own designer spaces, your own - HOME.?

14 years, 21 company-owned and 45 independent, owner-operated stores later, Loot Homewares is now considered to be one of the fastest-growing homewares companies in Australia and shows no signs of slowing down.
