The site itself is a feast for the eyes but we highly recommend browsing through the blog. Emily Osmond is founder and editor of getinmyhome and loves discovering Australian designers and makers along with international design trends.

Paint Me White

We’re big fans of upcycling and so we had to recommend this blog. Sandy has a passion for upcycling old furniture. She is a collector, a treasure hunter and sees the beauty in what pieces can be rather than what they currently are. She loves beautiful things shabby, rustic, beachy, french and anything that is recycled. Check out Paint me White >


La Maison Jolie

This blog may have started as a labour of love but it’s now an amazing collection of great design ideas and tips.  Rani loves talking about design ideas, inspirations, DIY projects and interviews with unique and upcoming interior product designers from all over the world. Check out La Maison Jolie >


The Little Design Corner

Crisp and clean, this greatly designed blog is one of a our favourite. The Little Design Corner is committed to making interior design and styling affordable and accessible to everyone.  Their goal is to help people, no matter what their budget, create beautiful spaces that reflect who they are and how they live.

Carmel Home’s ultimate goal is to ensure a unique, luxury custom home for each client from start to finish. Whereas some builders make a business in building variations of only a few dwellings over and over again, each Carmel home is truly an original, just like you. Moreover, our service offering is unique and tailored specifically for each build and each client. At Carmel Homes, we walk the client through the full build of their new home and consider every detail.


Most importantly, Carmel Homes works with your own style and tastes, assisting and guiding you throughout the entire process, helping you to realize your unique vision for your custom home. Our quality materials and experienced trades people are hand selected to fit not only the superior quality standards that our clients can expect from Carmel, but to also match your discriminating and individual tastes.


We understand that building a luxury home can be both exciting and stressful and we go to great lengths to make building with Carmel an enjoyable and stress-free experience.  We recognise that great communication and customer relations are just as important in ensuring each projects success. As a family business with over 20 years of experience, you will have the same dedicated consultant from the beginning to end. You can take comfort from the fact that the person you deal with owns the business.


Clients love working with us because we make their project easy, our knowledge saves time, money and stress, our budgets can be banked on and our timeframes can be lived by.


Architects like working with us because they know that their projects are run by a solution based, experienced, highly organised, top quality, client focused company.


If you are looking to build and you want the job done right with the quality your project deserves please contact Carmel Homes.
