About The Stylists

As professional painters, plumbers and site foreman, the Vos brothers sure know what it takes to make a reno work and work well.

Shannon & Simon burst onto the national renovating scene when they won The Block Glasshouse in 2014, and oh what a ride it’s been since then.

Older brother Shannon successfully launched his creative interior design company, Vos Creative Designs and has gone on to write for Inside Out Magazine and create a renovation series with

Simon opened the doors of his construction and design consultancy, Vos Design Construct and went on to appear on The Home Team for Channel 10 and Simon has created an online series following his own renovation, Coffs To Cali.

Shannon & Simon love the simplicity of a modern palette that is the perfect antidote to a hectic schedule featuring a clutter-free, largely neutral décor. Simon chose Beaumonts for modern tiles and bathroomware in his latest renovation series, Coffs to Cali.

Modern Style Checklist

Life is busy. You are busy. The simplicity of a modern palette is the perfect panacea to a hectic schedule featuring clutter-free, largely neutral decor. Modern is restrained but bespoke when a bold splash of colour or dynamic forms are used. No need for loads of accessories or distracting patterns in your space. 


  • Modern go-to colours are neutral so choose whites and greys to create a clean and calm ambience. Break the mould slightly with a dash of colour of your choice. 


  • Keep your space clutter-free.

  • Be brave and select a modern hero tile like a 3D tile on the wall or a geometric floor tile.

  • Choose a wall hung vanity and toilet to get a clean look.

  • Then personalise your bathroom idea with a simple decor item or a splash of greenery. Click here for inspo.

  • Cabinetry should be sleek with clean lines. 
  • Choose artwork that has similar tones to your overall colour scheme that’s large in scale and remember smooth, clean lines when selecting artwork.
