The owner has chosen a lovely colour palette with accents of blue/greys, sand and warm whites. This colour palette flows through the whole home giving a very upmarket finish and sense of welcome. This home has a lovely light feel that is also down to the large open rooms, that make the most of the light and view through the architectural joinery provided by Nulook Matamata Graeme is a big fan of Waihi Beach, which has a vibrant village, set alongside a 9km stretch of inviting white sand. When Graeme had the green light to start this build one of the key factors was indoor/outdoor living and making the most of the breath taking coastal views that span, many kilometres in both north and south directions from this property. The owners told Graeme they were big on having plenty of decking externally for relaxing at home or spending quality time with friends. This home has literally hundreds of metres of decking, made from Plantation Bamboo’s decking range of timber. Graeme states this is an exceptional product and its results speak for themselves. This is further born out by Graeme as he has used Plantation Bamboo’s decking product on his own beach bach, also at Waihi Beach.
