Here's the Cheats Way to Transform the Street Appeal of your Home - even if you have no experience, zero creative skills and the ugliest house on the street!
After battling the evening traffic, Melanie pulled into her driveway and sighed deeply.
She put her SUV into park and sat there for a moment. She turned down the radio and glared at her house, hands folded in her lap.
Just like she did every single time she pulled into that damn driveway…
She studied the outside of her home and wondered…
Why did she hate it so much?
Why did it embarrass her when friends came over for the first time?
Why did she always feel compelled to say, “We’ve done so much work - it’s much nicer on the inside, I swear!” whenever anyone wanted to visit?
And - most importantly -
Why couldn’t she fix it - whatever IT, the big, huge, glaring problem was - herself?
She’d watched all the home improvement shows. She’d scoured design magazines for clues. She’d gone on Pinterest and saved a million ideas…
But very few of them worked for HER house.
And the ones that might be a good fit for that style of home?
She had no idea how to achieve them.
Melanie sighed again.
She had new friends coming over this weekend, and the added stress of knowing that their first impression would be THIS - this ugly, depressing, brown brick house with barely any landscaping - was almost enough to make her want to cancel their visit.
She shook her head, turned off the ignition, and headed inside…
If you’re still reading, you probably know exactly how Melanie feels.
FAST-TRACK YOUR RENOVATION
Chances are you’ve driven through your neighbourhood - admiring all the beautiful houses with a twinge of envy - and then felt immediate disappointment pulling up to your own home.
Maybe you’ve tried to change it on your own already - spending hours and hours looking for inspiration, struggling to find ideas that fit your style, home, and budget…
You’re fed up to the back teeth about not knowing what to do. You’re ready to do something NOW.
There’s only one problem…
You've got lots of ideas, but can't seem to pull it all together in a way you're happy with...
"The course was super straight forward and easy to follow. I didn’t really know what to do so I just followed the instructions in bite size, step by step format and trusted the process. I would not rate myself as any good at artistic endeavours and had made a few renovation mistakes in the past, so I am rather proud of the final result!"
- Alison J. (Chandler, QLD)

A Note From Jane
Hi! I'm Jane Eyles-Bennett, an exterior designer with 30 years experience (yikes!).
I've developed a simple step-by-step formula to help you transform the front of your home with ease and confidence.
This is my very own secret process that I've refined over the years and I use it every day in my own design practice. It works like a charm for any house and any renovation budget ($5,000+). That’s a big claim, I know - but it's true.
Whether you're a complete novice or have some experience, you'll walk away with a solid plan to streamline the exterior renovation of your home, and finally be able to come home to street appeal you love! - Jane
Who is Street Appeal Academy for?
Perfect for people who:
- Want Street Appeal that stands out - in a good way!
- Are planning a mini make-over OR major overhaul.
- Want to use professional tradespeople OR get their hands dirty with DIY.
Just like your home renovation project isn’t a ‘one-size-fits-all’, neither is our program.
For example, this is not a how-to course with lessons on how to paint, how to tile, perform repairs etc (if you want help with that, check out the Bunnings website and YouTube for thousands of home improvement how-to videos).
Alternatively, maybe you don’t want to be hands-on at all!
If you prefer a white-glove solution where your design is presented to you on a silver platter, our custom design services might be a better choice. Want something completely done-for-you? No problem.
Full-service design fees start at $5900+gst - click here to explore this option.
The only problem with the Best on the Block Methodology is once you apply it to your home, you’ll never want to move!
6 GOLDEN DESIGN RULES
Street Appeal Academy is not just a colour picking course.
Sure, colours are important, but they’re not everything!
Why is it that ‘architect designed’ homes usually look amazing and DIY renos often do not?
It’s because those in the know never rely solely on colours. A stunning design stems from a carefully curated selection of materials, products, design details, textures, … and yes, colours as well!
Every first-class facade must incorporate 6 Golden Design Rules. Without them, the front of your home will look incohesive, amateurish and lacking that Wow factor you so badly want to achieve.
The best part? They don't cost any more to incorporate into your home, and they work on ANY property - big or small, old or new, brick, timber or render.
Street Appeal Academy teaches you how to use the GDR's on your own home - helping you create stunning Street Appeal you'd never achieve with colour alone.
Forget keeping up with the Joneses.
After you complete Street Appeal Academy, the Joneses will be scrambling to keep up with YOU.
“You can paint your house, you can overhaul your yard, you can even replace your roof, front fence and all your windows…
But without the Golden Design Rules at play, it will lack the honed 'designer' look you get from a professionally crafted facade.”
- Jane Eyles-Bennett
