We were excited to again partner with former The Block contestants, Kyal and Kara Demmrich. Their latest project, 'Blue Lagoon Build' followed the couple’s journey building their dream family beach house on the NSW Central Coast. The stunning home features a COLORBOND® Ultra steel roof in the colour Dune®.
Kyal and Kara are loyal fans of COLORBOND® steel, having used COLORBOND® steel in the colour Windspray® for the roof of their Toowoon Bay renovation, and COLORBOND® steel Matt in the colour Surfmist® for their acclaimed Long Jetty Reno project.
For Blue Lagoon Build, the couple constructed a brand-new home on a property that they purchased 6 years ago. The style of the home follows their signature coastal aesthetic and COLORBOND® Ultra steel in the colour Dune® is the perfect fit for the design. Says Kara:
"We chose COLORBOND® Ultra steel in the colour Dune® for our Blue Lagoon Build for a number of reasons. The warm, pale grey works beautifully with the surrounding bushland and coastline - it evokes a sense of calm and balance that is fitting for our Australian family beach house.
Also, given that the house is less than 150m from the surf we used COLORBOND® Ultra steel which is especially designed for severe coastal and industrial environments - where there may be a smell of salt or salt spray in the air.
Plus, by using COLORBOND® steel we’ve chosen a product that’s been tried and tested in Australian conditions."
We sat down with Kyal and Kara to discuss what influenced their design decisions for Blue Lagoon Build, and why they selected COLORBOND® Ultra steel in the colour Dune®.
