Designers Oak and Orange combined various textures and materials to introduce a ‘resort style living’ vibe to a new custom designed family home in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, New South Wales.

Dream Home 5, the coastal inspired modern home on a half-acre property, features all the elements of resort style living, with Oak and Orange achieving a contemporary design that infuses an enduring holiday mood.

The alfresco and pool surrounds are designed for entertaining, with multiple seating and dining areas, and an integrated BBQ system complete with a built-in bar fridge.

QuickClick 25x25mm battens from DECO Australia were installed around the BBQ to create a statement piece for the outdoor living space. Oak and Orange chose DECO’s aluminium batten system, DecoBatten as it assured fast and flawless installation with minimal wastage.

The designers also selected the DecoWood Super Durable Natural Casuarina finish as it offered all the benefits of a marine grade and UV resistant finish that was perfect for an outdoor entertaining area. The powdercoated solid aluminium battens deliver a low maintenance solution that requires no painting, staining or oiling, ensuring relaxed, resort style living for the owners well into the future.
