House Post Renovations In Melbourne

As the year draws to a close, we look back and celebrate our best achievements for the Accent team. One of the biggest highlights has been our TV appearances— especially Channel Nine’s Buying Blind.

We were delighted to help bring three Australian families’ dreams to life by adding the special Accent touch to their homes, transforming the drab to dazzling and creating spaces to be cherished for a lifetime.


Dallas and Jenny’s home presented some unique design challenges due to Jenny’s brief, as well as the addition of a new family member to the household: Dallas’ elderly father, John.

It was therefore crucial that the Buying Blind team created a separate space for John while accommodating Jenny’s dream of a Scandi-coastal-boho interior.

Much to Shaynna Blaze’s chagrin, Jenny expressed fears over the colour black in the bohemian decor. Luckily there were no issues getting the client to trust the team’s expertise once the renovations were revealed with Accent’s classic black aluminium frames.

Ditching the original, dated cream window frames for black effortlessly complemented the relaxed, coastal interior. The final look was not only timeless, but helped to break up the sea of white throughout the home— something Shaynna was confident would stand the test of time.

A true testament to aluminium’s versatility, the black frames also provided a subdued feel for grandfather John’s very own space in the home.

Lis and Ali’s desperate search for their future family home truly demonstrated that even the most frustrating renovation process is worth it if you make the right design choices.

In desperate need of an overhaul that would turn their house into a home, Lis and Ali put their trust in the Buying Blind team to make the impossible happen. Luckily, Accent helped to achieve just that.

Monument aluminium frames provided a striking contrast to the home’s bright and whimsical decor, as well as the muted blue accents along the home’s red brick exterior.

The final reveal provided a huge emotional payoff for Lis and Ali, who were clearly impressed by Shaynna’s decision to anchor the home’s more playful features — such as the polka dot bathroom tiles — with Accent’s balanced black frames.

Cathy and Alex’s home had massive potential to begin with, but it required a few tweaks to bring it into the modern day and make it seriously impressive.

Dull and dated elements were given a new lease on life by focusing on a rich but neutral colour scheme. The home’s expansive interior and use of wood grain throughout was the ideal space to introduce Accent’s black aluminium frames.

The black aluminium door frames installed at the home’s entrance and back door made for a bold introduction to both the entryway and the outdoor entertaining area. Accent’s black frames also allowed the home’s windows to break up the white interior and prevent the largest spaces from appearing too washed out.

While the living room’s floor-reaching aluminium window gave the space some serious impact, the star of the show was definitely the kitchen. The awning window really tied in the marble island counter and steel accents.
