Maddren Homes’ showhome in Millwater, North Auckland, is a great example of how to mix colours and textures to produce a spectacular result.

Firth block webTony and Terena Anderson, Managing Directors of Maddren Homes, chose various materials and designs to create their second showhome – starting with Firth’s Manorstone block in Antique White.

“Adaleen from Firth had shown us the Manorstone White range of blocks and Terena and I thought that the Antique White block – in a rumbled, stack-bonded finish with the Dricon Antique White mortar – would suit the cathedral beam ceilings of the interior of the house,” Tony says.

Terena worked with a colour consultant and used black contrast joinery, downpipes, spouting and long-run roofing to create the striking result. This was finished off with a Firth black concrete driveway bordered with a Firth Forum Paver.

“We couldn’t be more happy with the final look of the home,” adds Terena. “The contrast of the stack bonded Manorstone block, the weatherboard and black and white colouring certainly makes the house stand out.”
