Create your own Stunning Design 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.
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.
Perhaps you’ve already seen the disapproving looks from your mother-in-law, and neighbours…
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 have no idea where to start!
Which colours and materials will work best on your home? How can you avoid making costly mistakes?
The last thing you want is an upgrade that disappoints you every time you arrive home or - worse - adds no value at all!
It’s not like you're short of options…
You've got a million and one saved, but pulling them together for your own home has you perplexed and shaking your head…
Your front facade is the first thing people see. It sets the tone for your home’s whole experience so you want to make sure that it reflects your personal style.
After all, you don't want your home to look disjointed, amateurish, or just plain blah, do you?
Achieve A Beautiful Facade For Your Home
Imagine pulling up to a gorgeous facade you designed yourself…
One that incorporates the colours and concepts you love in a way that truly reflects your style and complements your home in the best possible way. A facade that;
- Brings your house to life with more WOW factor than you'd ever thought possible
- Fits into your budget and adds massive value to your home
- Gives you enormous pride every time you turn into your driveway

A Note From Jane
Hi! I'm Jane Eyles-Bennett, an exterior and interior designer of 30 years.
I've developed a simple step-by-step formula for designing stunning house facades. Forget the cookie-cutter cr*p you see all over the internet (it probably won’t suit your home anyway 😉). This is my very own secret process that I've refined over the years. It works for any house, of any style, in any suburb, on any budget (typically $10,000+). That’s a big claim, I know - but I use this method everyday in my own design practice and it works every time.
The framework you’ll learn in Street Appeal Academy helps even the most creatively-challenged and newbie renovators modernise the front facades of their homes as beautifully as any top designer or architect.
Who is Street Appeal Academy for?
Perfect for people who:
- Want a custom facade that stands out - in a good way!
- Are planning a bit of a freshen-up OR a major overhaul.
- Are willing to take a little time to figure out what would make them happiest with their home.
- Are ready to work with 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 $6900+gst and we are typically scheduled 2-3 months in advance - contact us here now to get on the calendar.
The only problem with the Best on the Block Methodology is once you apply it to your home, you’ll never want to move!
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!
At Street Appeal Academy, we show you how to choose all of these and more.
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.
Here’s a little-known fact: The success of your facade is NOT dependent on how much money you spend. Instead, it’s about how successfully you implement the 6 Golden Design Rules.
The best part?
You can apply them to your own facade regardless of the era, size, style, layout, condition, or value of your home.
At Street Appeal Academy, you'll learn how to incorporate the 6 Golden Design Rules together with hundreds of other tricks of the trade to achieve a facade you thought you could only dream about.
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 that sparkle and sizzle you get from a professionally designed home.”
- Jane Eyles-Bennett
How Does This Program Work?
When you join Street Appeal Academy, you’ll receive instant access to our step-by-step series of short video lessons, bite-sized progress tasks, and personalised one-on-one feedback to achieve your dream facade design.
You'll create your very own professional Facade Design Plan in as little as 2-3 weeks. When your plan is complete, you can then have it illustrated in full colour by an outside professional artist.
Then once you see your creation in vivid detail, it's time to go make it a reality!
Whether you're brand-new to renovating or a home improvement veteran, at Street Appeal Academy, we take the time to get to know your project and guide you by the hand to create a tasteful, timeless, and achievable design that you can confidently implement with the help of local tradies or DIY at your own pace.
No matter your renovation budget, this program will work for you.
Here's What's Inside...
You’ll receive 8 Master Lessons of expert training consisting of short videos and follow-up tasks.
While the materials are created to be achievable in 2-3 weeks, you can complete the lessons at your own pace and transform your home as slowly or as quickly as you wish.
As a valued Street Appeal Academy student, you’ll also receive…
A Full Year’s Access To Weekly Q&A Live Calls
You can tune into twice-weekly Q&A live calls (presented via Zoom) with our design team. Ask questions and get instant feedback on your ideas whenever you need it.
Exclusive Membership Access
You’ll also be granted annual membership to our private Facebook group where you can get daily feedback from our design coaches (Monday - Friday), share ideas, and enjoy community support from like-minded renovators.
Finally, you’ll also have access to hourly, one-on-one private coaching/feedback sessions. This optional upgrade is only available to students of Street Appeal Academy.
