These design styles are on display as they would appear in a home, so that buyers can get a real feel for what the inside of their home will look like upon completion.Porter Davis’ World of Style has opened at 358 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley. Picture: Resort-style kitchenThe aim, according to World of Style senior designer, Randall Pye, is to make the whole home decorating process faster, easier and drama free.Pye said while it sounded simple in theory, once home buyers had to start making choices about paint colour, finishes and appliances it could quickly become an overwhelming task.“The process is a really difficult process for clients,” he said.“We ask people who are not experts in interior design to pick their house from top to bottom, from colours and stone to tiles and carpet, and they don’t always have those skills.”The qualified interior designers at World of Style will help you choose colour schemes, fittings and finishes for your new home. Picture: World of Style, Fortitude ValleyAll of the World of Style staff at 358 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, are qualified interior designers.A lot of thought was put into exactly what needed to go into the centre, as well as where it would be.“The building has a nice feeling, a bit of history, a bit of architecture about it. It is on a really visible corner and close to public transport, the train station is out the back and it is close to James Street,” Pye said.“It is a bustling area and a growing design hub,” he said. “We are hoping that we will form part of the space emerging as a bit of a go-to place for design.”There was a a lot of consideration when it came to choosing what would be displayed at World of Style. Picture: Walk-in pantry from one of Porter Davis’ Resort kitchensThe World of Style concept started in Melbourne about 15 years ago at a time when many display homes had a fairly similar look and were, at times, poorly furnished..“We started trying to individualise our display homes and make them feel a bit different and unique so that as clients went through them they had a different experience in every display,” Pye said.World of Style has evolved as a separate entity that home buyers can visit to see what finishes and fittings they want in their homes. This includes having actual kitchens on display rather than just rows of appliances and tapware on shelving.“It became more of an experience centre than a showroom,” Pye said.At World of Style you can explore entire kitchens and bathrooms, rather than individual tiles and tapware. Picture: Contemporary bathroom“The biggest benefit of the space is that people can see what their house could be. Instead of walking into a major retailer and seeing a rack of ovens lined up side by side, we actually put a series of ovens in situ.“We are just trying to demonstrate different looks and feels and excite people. I think World of Style gives people an opportunity to refine what they want and makes the process a lot simpler.”Pye said home buyers could look at one of the Porter Davis themes and then receive advice from their interior designers about what colours schemes and appliances went best with them.“What we are trying to do is show people what we know works and what we know is popular.World of Style is about creating an immersive design experience for customers before building their dream home. Picture: Classic kitchen on display“It is a happy blend of getting what’s on trend and making sure you are showing people what’s fresh and new; we try to change out the space every couple of years and update the product.”Pye said his advice to homebuyers was to get into World of Style as soon as a Porter Davis home was on their radar.The World of Style centre will be open seven days a week, from 9am-5pm weekdays and 10am-3pm on weekends.last_img read more

Virus resurgence casts pall over France’s Ligue 1 season kick-off

Even if coach Thomas Tuchel has some remodelling to do with captain Thiago Silva leaving, it will take some special achievement to dethrone the capital side. Olympique Lyonnais, however, are hoping to mount a challenge after being deprived of any European competition when they finished the previous season in seventh place. Sports director Juninho said the club would “lose” talented midfielder Houssem Aouar and striker Moussa Dembele, though Lyon have plenty of home-grown talent, notably midfielder Rayan Cherki, who could step up this term. Coach Rudi Garcia, however, conceded the staff would have “some psychological work to do” to quickly focus on domestic duties and avoid a bad start after being eliminated in the Champions League semi-finals by Bayern Munich on Wednesday. Monaco, the only club to break PSG’s recent domination, hope they can find some stability after former Bayern coach Nico Kovac was appointed to lead the 2017 champions. read also:PSG suffer more injury woes after French League Cup final Marseille, runners-up last season, have found stability under Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas — who wanted to leave but said his players convinced him to stay. “It was very hard for me to go back on my word after I had exposed myself publicly. The players, and only the players, were the key in making me change my mind,” he said. Marseille, who are under the watch of UEFA after breaking financial fair play regulations, will hope to retain most of their top players after France winger Dimitri Payet extended his contract and agreed to a pay cut. And Rennes, who climbed onto the podium last season, will be hoping the prospect of their first-ever Champions League campaign can convince gifted teenage midfielder Eduardo Camavinga to stick around in Brittany. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas will have to wait for his team to start their 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign after four people tested positive for the coronavirus at the club. Olympique de Marseille were scheduled to play the curtain-raiser against Saint-Etienne on Friday but four confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus at the Provence club meant that the French League postponed the match. Girondins de Bordeaux will host Nantes instead as the LFP started to reshuffle the calendar before the first kick-off of the season. The 2019-20 season was cut short with 11 games left amid the pandemic. “I’m pessimistic. I don’t see this league happening in normal conditions. We’re not going to have so many dates for postponed games and soon we’re going to hit a wall,” Saint-Etienne coach Claude Puel said. More than half of the top division’s clubs have recorded cases of the disease — totalling some 40 players — jeopardising their preparation and causing the cancellation of many pre-season friendlies. One of those players is Nantes captain Abdoulaye Toure, whose side had recorded seven virus cases since the end of last month but will currently play the season’s opening match. Montpellier announced on Wednesday the club’s top scorer from last season, Andy Delort, became their seventh case of the pandemic, while Nimes’ opening match with Brest on Sunday could also be postponed after they registered four new cases this week. A 57-page medical and health protocol set up by the League is designed to limit stoppages and reduce contamination as much as possible. Players will be tested two to three days before each match and a game should be postponed as soon as four cases are found at the same club within an eight-day period. This is precisely what happened to Marseille and could happen to Nimes. Notwithstanding fears over the virus, some fans will be allowed to attend matches, with a government-mandated maximum of 5,000 people including the teams and coaching and organisational staff permitted to enter stadiums. However fan groups at several clubs said the rules mean they will not go to matches.center_img Loading… last_img read more

Golf star Tiger Woods announces plans for a new memoir ‘Back’

Since then, he has been reportedly battling injuries. And just like that, the 11-time PGA player of the year fell from grace. In April 2019, he announced his comeback with a win in the 2019 Masters tournament, which was his fifth Masters win. It leaves him one shy of Jack Nicklaus’ record six Masters win, and three short of his record eighteen Major wins. His performance materialised when it mattered most and almost feels like a throwback to the 2000s. He now has three top-10s in his past four Majors.
