Styling Your Provenance Home

So, you’ve just bought your new home at Provenance, congratulations! Once your home is built, it’s time for the fun part… styling your Provenance home!

To help guide you on your way, we have done some digging to reveal the current and upcoming interior design trends sweeping through Australian homes this year. Think natural, organic and simple to celebrate our Earth’s raw materials, and try the subtle use of colour to inject your home with a personal touch.

Textured Walls:

Including texture in your styling adds an extra element as it impacts sensation and touch. Nature plays a big role here, with stone, marble and wooden beam feature walls all on trend.

Minimalist Art:

Art that blends seamlessly with its interiors is increasing in popularity to create a calm atmosphere within the home. The old saying ‘less is more’ rings true when selecting your statement piece.


This may come as no surprise as the popularity of houseplants soared last year during the initial Covid lockdowns and continues to do so in 2021. This is not only due to their aesthetic but the fact that houseplants can improve your mood, reduce fatigue, lower stress and anxiety and improve the air quality in your home.


As we become more conscious of our environmental footprint, the use of organic materials and decor is important. Think materials like stone, rattan and cork and the use of solar panels and low flow tap fixtures.

Which trend do you think you will incorporate into your Provenance home?

Land Chosen for Huntly Catholic School.

We’ll keep you updated with community news to help you Build Your New Life at Provenance Bendigo, Bendigo’s largest ever masterplanned community with land only from $109,000 and house and land packages from $254,900.

In searching for the perfect parcel of land for a future Catholic school, Catholic Education Sandhurst has also recognised Huntly as a large growth area. Now, this school is one step closer to being built after Catholic Education Sandhurst officially settled on a parcel of land.

The area on the corner of Pasley and Rennie streets features more than 14 acres of land with the new school being part of the Holy Rosary Parish.

Catholic Education Sandhurst director Paul Desmond said construction would still be years away but was delighted to announce the official purchase of the property. “Our exploration of the site began in December 2015, when we identified Huntly as an area of significant growth,” he said.

He continued, “We have been committed to establishing a Catholic Primary school in the Huntly area ever since. […] We wanted a big piece of land for buildings and sporting fields as well as passive green areas for kids to relax in. When constructed, these much needed facilities will cater for the growing Huntly population, providing a comprehensive educational facility with first class amenities.”

On finding a principal to lead the community and school, Mr Desmond said “.. We will be looking for a principal well in advance of commencing building. Very early we would like the community to know (who the) principal is and employ that person six to eight months out (from construction).”

The new Huntly Catholic school will be the 57th school in the Sandhurst diocese. At this stage it is planned as a primary school. “We just think this is exciting time in the history of Bendigo and Huntly in particular and we are looking forward to seeing families go there.”

Provenance Bendigo, situated in Huntly, will benefit from a commercial core (STCA), Huntly train station due for completion in 2023 and vast parklands, as well as new community facilities such as the future Huntly Catholic School. Each home is within 200metres of a park and walking distance to the train, and is the perfect community to Build Your New Life and raise your family.

Home is where the heart is – April and Travis’ Engagement at Provenance Estate

In a Provenance Bendigo first, two of our buyers celebrated a huge milestone in their relationship when they got engaged on their land over the weekend. We sat down with April and Travis to learn above their love story, and also the journey that brought them to Provenance.

April, tell us about your and Travis’ relationship – how long have you been together? Where did you meet?

Trav and I have been together for 3 years. He and my brother are best friends and that’s how we met. It took us years of being friends before we realised that we had an interest in each other but now we are inseparable and here we are building our life together at Provenance.

And, tell us about the big moment. How did Travis propose? Be honest, did you have an inkling..

We were celebrating our 3 years together and had originally planned to go away, but that couldn’t happen because of COVID-19 restrictions. We decided to dress up for a romantic dinner at home (or so I thought).

He told me there was something I needed to see and got my sister to drop me at our block, I thought maybe the surprise was that our build had started but he had everything set up for a romantic night together – he had tea cooking in the Webber, set up pretty lights, our favourite music was playing, drinks poured.. there was so many small details that were thought out so perfectly but I still had no idea at all what was to come!

I always thought I would know, because I’m pretty onto things usually, so he did a really good job. I had no clue at all. He pretended he was setting the timer on our camera to take a photo of us, but actually he was pressing record on the camera, and instead of coming and standing beside me, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Trav lost him mum two years ago and he used the gold and the diamond from her engagement ring to custom make me a ring so that made it all the more special.

Travis proposed on land that is to become your home, very romantic. You purchased a house and land package in Provenance – what is it that you and Travis love about Provenance? 

What we love about Provenance is the structure of the regulations – we know that Provenance is going to end up being, a beautiful Estate. Plus having the future train station and the proposed plan of a commercial core for the community with supermarkets etc was what made us decide to build here.

Pouring of your footing is a big milestone also – congratulations. Tell us about the home you’ve chosen to build, and why that build?

Thank you! We are very excited to have started our build. It’s our very first home, we have decided to build with Welsh Homes, who have been very supportive and helpful through the whole process. We chose Welsh because they had the perfect house plan that suited what we wanted within our budget and they have provided exceptional service.

What do you love about Huntly? Is it the amenities, that the area is booming, that you can see yourself raising a family there etc?

I have lived in Huntly all of my life and we both love the atmosphere here. We love that it’s out of town, but is also not a far drive to be able to access everything we need. We are definitely planning to raise a family here.

Any wedding bells yet? Have you started planning the big day?

We have had discussions about wedding plans and we really like the thought of getting married at Waratah weddings – the venue looks amazing. It’s very “us” and it would be sentimental to be married in the hometown where we built our first house together. We would love to be married in the next year or two.

Thanks to April and Travis for sharing their wonderful story. If you’d like to Build Your New Life at Provenance, contact Katrina at 0418 584 107 today or explore our Land only, House and Land options or Park Homes.
