Two beautiful veins showcased in Sydney House Rules High Stakes reno

Featured Colour: Bianco Onix and Statuario Venato
Project Name: House Rules High Stakes – Suave and Sophisticated Masculine Home

As top scorers in the eco-ranch home renovation, twins from Tasmania Kimmy and Rhi received the advantage of choosing their zone as well as assigning zones for other teams to design and renovate in the western Sydney home of NSW best mates Laith and George. The twins chose no less than the kitchen and VIP lounge for themselves.

After consultation with cabinetmaker Balnei and Colina, Kimmy and Rhi chose Bianco Onix, one of the four new veins launched by Smartstone late last year, for kitchen island, back bench and splash back. Bianco Onix features a gentle, sweeping vein on a backdrop that glows as white as the hillside homes that inspired this idyllic Santorini collection.

Inspired by the house rule set by Laith and George to create a suave and sophisticated masculine home, the Tassie twins combined two dark shades for cabinetry panels, a subtle woodgrain brown-based coloured oak for the upper and island cabinets and a dark, cool-based, consistent grey coloured oak for the bottom cabinets and pantry. This dark palette complemented the black appliances, resulting a stunning contrast with the white-based, waterfall and shadow-line edged Bianco Onix island which was highlighted and illuminated by a black ring pendant that hovers above it.

In another zone, QLD couple Tamara and Rhys created a stunning laundry area by pairing black cabinetry with a benchtop and splash back in Statuario Venato, the most popular veined surface in the Smartstone collection. The fluid dark grey veins of Statuario Venato gave the tiny laundry space the impact it needed.

Both Smartstone Bianco Onix and Statuario Venato are in the Santorini Collection characterised by dazzlingly beautiful and versatile range of pure, perfect whites.

For the home renovation round, the teams were challenged to renovate another teams’ home in just 7 days.  Teams worked on assigned zones while adhering to the following House Rules laid down by the home owners:

1. Create a suave and sophisticated masculine home
2. Style with deep, heritage colours
3. We’ll be looking for the finer details and quality craftsmanship
4. Give us a VIP lounge fit for distinguished gentlemen like us
5.  Open up for family gatherings
