The new metallic – brushed metals will be big for spring

Posted on Wed, October 12, 2016

This post was originally published on Interiors Addict, and features a selection of beautiful brushed metal tapware from e&s Trading that are right on trend according to our ambassador Romy Alwill. 

From copper to brass and bronze, metallics will continue their reign into spring but with more of an aged, worn-in feel, says former Reno Rumble judge and e&s ambassador Romy Alwill. “Metallics can instantly brighten up a kitchen or living area that needs a much needed edge this season for a cost effective and quick renovation. As a build on the industrial trend we’ve seen in kitchens, we’re seeing a surge of interest around luxurious bathroom finishes, especially with aged metals such as antique bronzes and different types of brass,” says stylist Romy, who thinks the look will be popular for everything from doors and handles to cupboards and joinery.

$10K Renovation Relief Winners || Beth & John

Posted on Thu, October 06, 2016

Get to know our $10K Renovator Winners

 In August, e&s hosted a competition where we asked Facebook to tell us why their renovation needed some relief with a $10,000 voucher from e&s. 


Winners, Beth & John are a young couple who recently purchased their home, which was in need for some love. With hot pink walls and as Beth described "a jungle garden", Beth & John are determined to bring this house back to life. 

We asked them some questions to find out more about the story of the house, their style, and a bit of insight of how they plan to spend their $10K e&s voucher. 

1. Tell us about the home. How long have you lived there?

We bought the house at auction in June and moved in 2 months later. Its a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, triple front brick house built in the 70’s. 

2. Did you buy it to renovate? 

We bought it to live in and quickly realized we definitely need to renovate as it hasn't been updated in 40 years! 

3. Are you renovating the whole house? If not, what rooms are you renovating? 

The whole house needs to be updated, [but] the kitchen is number one on our list. After we knock down the wall that separates the kitchen and living, we’ll have a better view on the layout and design. Then [ we will work on] the bathroom, bedrooms and the jungle backyard..... So yes basically the whole house.

4. Have you had any challenges so far? If so, how have you overcome them?

We initially thought it would be fun to paint ourselves. When we bought the house it had pink and green walls so we had to do something about that ASAP. Because its an old house, we didn't realise the prep work involved in getting the walls nice and straight/smooth ready for paint. We weren't seeing any results with our own work so we eventually called a plasterer.

5. How far into the renovation are you? Do you have an end date?

We’ve only just painted the walls for now with colours we both like. Everything else is still in the design stage. We’re still exploring online, reading renovation magazines and watching The Block for ideas. We aim for mid 2017 however we do expect a few hiccups along the way.

6. How would you describe you and John’s style? Is it different? If so, how?

We love the whole vintage look. Because the house was built in the 70’s we want to try and keep some of those features, like the bottle glass window panel in the living room, hardwood timber floorboards and the existing fire place. It will definitely be a vintage restoration with a hint of modern features like appliances and electronics. We love old art work and collecting the odd piece from bric and brac stores.

7. Have you got any e&s product/s that you’re wanting to spend prize on?
We’ve had a look online and have our eyes on a few of your products. I think we’ll be spending the voucher on kitchen appliances because we really want to tackle the kitchen first. There are so many great options at E&S, i think it may take a few visits to make a decision!

8. What’s one thing you’re looking forward to once the renovation is finished?
Entertaining! We love having our friends and family over for dinner and drinks. Also just enjoying and admiring all of our hard work we put into the house. 

e&s: We are very much looking forward to seeing how the house is going to look after the renovation finished, but until then, here are some photos of the house before any renovation commenced.

Get to know Sub Zero Wolf.

Posted on Wed, September 21, 2016

We recently sat down with Managing Director, Andrew Mumford and Marketing Manager, Frances Lynch of Sub Zero Wolf to find out more about the origins of the company, product favourites and quirky features that makes Sub Zero Wolf the market leaders in luxury refrigeration and ovens and help support the 'home chefs'. 


Established in 1945 by Westye F Bakke in Madison, Wisconsin, the family run business recently celebrated their 70th birthday. 

Sub Zero Wolf focuses on design, product engineering, quality of build and producing a luxury domestic appliance. It is for this reason that Sub Zero only manufacturers 80-100 fridges each day to ensure quality control in the highest regard. 

In the 1940's, Sub-Zero worked closely with world renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright to develop integrated refrigeration. Since then, every fridge manufactured is serviced and vented from the front. In 1954, Sub-Zero Wolf were the first to release the food preservation system of dual refrigeration – separate cooling systems for refrigerator and freezer to ensure optimal humidity and temperature in both zones

Sub-Zero has 48 models in the range offering a food preservation solution to suit any lifestyle. All full height models have a consistent height ensuring even lines and a perfect design aesthetic when multiple models are installed together. (as pictured below). 

             Image: Sub Zero 610mm Wine Storage, Sub Zero 610mm Freezer column and 610mm Refrigerator column

When asked if Andrew had a personal favourite in the Sub-Zero range, Andrew chose the 762mm Integrated Wine Storage which he referred to as a "beverage center." This appliance is unlike anything else on the market - there are 3 different temperature zones to ensure that your beverages are stored at their optimum level.

This beverage center allows you to store your icy cold beer, refreshing champagne and soft drinks between 1 degree and 7 degrees C and your wine can be stored anywhere between 5 degrees to 18 degrees C. To make sure that you're always stocked up for any event, the top fridge drawer comfortably stores 2 slabs in the drawer. 

                                    Image: 762mm Integrated Wine Storage

Moving along the Wolf range, Andrew's favourite product is the 1524mm Dual Fuel Range Ovens. These ovens have two full-sized ovens that are both multi-function which means that you're never restricted to what you want to cook. If you want to batch baking with a fan-forced oven, where you have the capacity to bake 120 biscuits in one batch bake, and at the same time you have 1.5m of cooking space, allows you to have a substantial cooking area. You also have the capacity to have different configurations on top such as tepanyaki plate, up to six gas burners or a BBQ.

Another unique feature is the dual-stacked gas burner which provides the full spectrum of control - an ultralow flame ideal for simmering up to a high heat for boiling and searing. The Wolf simmer control option gives you the same level of control as induction meaning you can leave chocolate on the stove for 5-6 hours and it will never burn to the base.

These products are not only made to last, but the distinct aesthetics and strong product engineering means that with Sub-Zero and Wolf, you'll never fail to be a home chef.

The Trend That Will Rope You In

Posted on Wed, September 21, 2016

Even though rope is not a new material on the market, the natural fibre is definitely making a comeback into households. 

With the weather warming up, rope is finding its way back into homes in a fun and eco-friendly way. Rope furnishings add an earthy and rustic touch to every home. Not only is this a fairly inexpensive material to play around with, it is versatile enough to be showcased in a variety of home decor furnishings and today, is one of the hottest design trends on the scene. 

Rope is an excellent material for furniture decoration and creating decorative accessories for your rooms and outdoor living spaces so we thought we'd show you a few ways that you can add some rope into your home. 

1. Rope Placemat

This rope placemat is not only a great way to add some more texture into your kitchen, but in this case, it matches perfectly with the shelving.

2. Rugs

Rope rugs are not only chic, but are much more sustainable then other fibres. This image below is a DIY rope rug which was made within the day.

Rope themed lighting is one of the most popular current home design trends on the scene. These artistic and modern interior ideas add a special charm to any space.
