Refined Tribal Style

Domaine Design Series

If you’re familiar with the Domaine process, you would know that we like to make the home building journey as smooth and efficient as possible, and this isn’t any different when it comes to selecting the look and feel of your new home. After you sign your contract with us, you’ll move onto the colour selection stage where you will be able to browse and choose which design specifications you want for the inside and outside of your Domaine home. 

Because we know how overwhelming and indecisive this can be for many, we have curated 12 internal and 12 external colour schemes that you can choose from to make the decision-making a little easier for you! These colour schemes, as well as the finishing touches such as your doors, accessories and lights have all been assembled by our team of experienced interior design specialists and are constantly being reviewed so that our offering is in line with the current and timeless style trends. 

After the release of our new design specifications, we decided to sit down with our internal interior designers and ask them what studio selections they would choose if they were to build with us and wanted to share their best design tips with you!
