WHOEVER buys this three-bedroom house will reap the benefits of some professional interior design.

Joint vendor Paul Kruger is an interior designer and has repainted and refurbished the 2004-built home, at 8 Wharfdale Lane, Mawson Lakes.

He bought it with a partner six years ago and says it came with a mix of neutral tones and feature walls in bright block colours.

The property is now full of soft greys, some of which are textured, complimented by white venetian blinds and funky light fixtures.

Mr Kruger said he had experimented with a few different colour schemes over the years, particularly in the separate guest bedroom.

"It's been decorated about five times," he laughed.

"I've had chocolate browns, lattes and yellows. It's charcoal grey now, which is my favourite of the colours it's been. It's quite sophisticated and moody."

Mr Kruger said many visitors to the warehouse were surprised by its interior as it's quite different from most other modern homes on the market.

He said the the grey works because of the property's "light and bright" warehouse design.

The floorplan includes a two-storey void, two living areas, polished concrete floors and a covered outdoor entertaining area.

He added grey is "becoming bigger" in the design world but is also quick to point out the walls could be easily repainted in whites if the new owners didn't like them.

"I didn't paint any of the really high walls for that reason," he said.

If the next owner sticks with the grey, Mr Kruger recommended decking rooms out with furniture and accessories in whites, blacks, further grey tones and red or other block colours.

Furniture-wise, he said anything modern and industrial would look good, as would glass and more dramatic pieces.
