Federation style homes are distinctly Australian and their colonial and almost country feel creates a warm and inviting home. This style has been influenced by a number of period designs and morphed into something that is truly Australian, relaxed, country and built for entertaining. Their decorative flair is something easily identified, and you can read about the features that make Federation home uniquely their own here.
So now you’ve decided on a federation home, what mouldings do you use? Here are our top recommendations for crating that original look:
SK77 or SK79 skirting with SK117A architrave
We recommend pairing SK77 or SK79 skirting with the SK117A architrave. You can see it used below in this delightful kitchen as a standout feature framing the lovely lead light windows.
When combing these profiles, this is the end result, which creates character and depth to any traditional, federation style homes.
It also pairs beautifully with some traditional wall panelling for more detail and interest to your interior.
This profile truly is pretty and has the right amount of detail and flat space. The large rounds and some angled detail is a refinement from the Edwardian style and was typical as the Colonial movement progressed. This profile will make a statement, especially when used in a tall size.
A little Edwardian styled and a common profile seen in Colonial homes, this design is one which is timeless and classic and will last throughout the times and trends.
SK354 Skirting with SK92 architrave
Mixing this skirting and architrave adds more interest to an interior, and with the addition of a skirting block, creates a really decorative feature.
This lovely little profile has a lambs tongue inspiration with a little more detail to add interest. It can be used in traditional colonial homes or those that have a coastal influence.
