A guide to our 2019 Styles with Sonia Simpfendorfer
Sonia Simpfendorfer, Creative Director of Nexus Designs, explores our nine Styles for 2019.
Building or renovating a home is a very personal journey. Your home is about you. Both inside and out – it can be a true expression of your style and aspirations, whether that’s right on trend, completely classic or somewhere in between.
Choosing the right building materials for your home is one of the most important decisions you will make. Durable, strong, and timeless in style, bricks are not only a superior and progressive material, but a versatile design tool available in a myriad of colours, shapes, textures and sizes. More desirable than ever, they allow endless customisation opportunities for contemporary Australian homes and building design alike. Choosing your bricks before the benchtops simply make sense. Surface materials, tapware and fittings, after all, are easy to swap out. Bricks remain forever.
Begin your journey with two important questions – what is my style, and how do I want to live and feel in my space? After all, homes are about the people who live in them, not just the materials they are made of.
PGH Bricks want you to embrace your unique personal style and bring it with confidence into your home.
