Add a touch of opulence with Metricon's Empire design inspiration

Vivid colours, velvet furnishings and gold accents epitomise Metricon’s latest Look Book design theme, curated to evoke associations with the luxurious oriental opulence.

With photography captured from the Empire-styled Doulton home in Burwood East, visitors to Metricon’s latest online Look Book will get a true taste for just how captivating this theme is when brought to life inside the home.

Every space has been carefully styled with an unwavering attention to detail, resulting in a captivating interior that feels fit for royalty. From floor-to-ceiling marble ensuite tiling, to deep chocolate and jade accessories dotted throughout living areas, each space is a nod to grand, contemporary design.   

Capturing the latest in on-trend interiors, the 20th installation of Metricon’s Look Book features design tips how-to’s on bringing to life this indulgent feel to life in every room in the house.

Senior Interior Designer, Jacinta Evans, says the style aims to capture a feel of effortless sophistication, brought to life by bespoke, elegant furnishings.   
“We started with a calming, neutral colour palette and brought it to life with by introducing a range of striking colours, like jade, brass and gold,” said Evans.
“The style emulates the grandeur of the opulent orient, but we’ve also made sure it still retains the relaxed feel that’s so integral to Australian home design.”
“Throw cushions, rugs and greenery have been strewn throughout the house to achieve that elegant, yet comfortable feeling,” Jacinta concluded.
Metricon’s Look Book themes help to inspire Australians to create truly unique, beautiful home interiors that help them love where they live. Experience the Empire style via the online Look Book at: or firsthand at Metricon’s Doulton display home.
