Austral Bricks new trends for 2017

Mark Bryson - Wednesday, March 01, 2017

New home exteriors in Melbourne this year are trending towards subtle colours with texture from raw and natural materials.

Austral Bricks is one of Berstan Homes’ preferred suppliers for exterior brickwork. The company has been around for more than 100 years, and is now in all six Australian states.

A new Melbourne range offers traditional character restyled for today’s modern homes. The range reflects established Melbourne suburbs, such as Brighton, Canterbury, Hawthorn, Newport and Windsor.

Current on-trend colours are sunrise shades, from Blush to smokey pinks. Cool greys dominate as a neutral palette with an accent of black. The more subdued tones for brickwork work well with lots of timber and concrete.
