Create your Dream Home with Intrim’s new Selections in a Box range


Intrim Mouldings has made selecting your skirting, architraves, and wall panelling to suit your preferred style simple with ‘Selections in a Box’.

Each style box contains samples picked for you by the experts, with our Modern selection boxes just released with more popular styles to make choosing quick & simple. Many types of wall panelling can be used across a number of different styles, with subtle differences in the profile shapes or combinations of mouldings to get the look.

The Modern Selections in a Box range focuses on six modern styles: Contemporary, Mid-Century Modern, Art Deco, Coastal Modern, Box Modern and Scandi Barn. Each style has one curated collection of timber mouldings to achieve the style, making selecting timber mouldings easy.

So which style is the right fit for you? To make your decision easy it’s best to understand what each style is to help you decide which look you’re after.


Contemporary style refers to the present-day style and is characterised by modern, sleek and minimalist design featuring sharp lines and simple geometric shapes. An open floor plan and efficient use of space are key design features with the décor minimal. In terms of colour, there is a focus on neutral tones including white, black, and grey contrasted with bold bright colours.

Mid-Century Modern

Mid-Century Modern emerged in the United States between the 1940s and 1960s. This style is characterised by clean lines and modern materials including steel, concrete and glass. Large windows, flat or low-pitched roofs and an open floor plan combined with natural materials like wood and stone are also often incorporated into the design aesthetic.

Art Deco

Art Deco originated in the 1920’s France gaining popularity and followed the popular art nouveau movement throughout the 1930s and 1940s. Hollywood truly embraced it and is characterised by bold, geometric shapes and rich materials such as chrome, glass and mirrors. With bold patterns, highly contrasting colours and with a focus on glamourous living Art Deco is a combination of traditional luxury and elements of modernism that create a timeless design style.

Characterized by clean lines, soft, relaxing coastal colours, open spaces and natural materials it’s a style loved widely by Australians. Natural light, wood furnishings and blues and greens inspired by the sea add a breezy touch that perfectly wraps up this relaxed style.

Box Modern

Box Modern is a style of home characterised by box-like structures, sharp, geometric shapes, open-plan living and minimalistic design. Multi-purpose spaces and built-in storage are all interior staples in a Box Modern home focusing on functional design above all else. In terms of colour, neutral shades and materials like metal and glass are common components that finish off this sleek, sometimes industrial look.

Scandi Barn

The Scandi Barn style is inspired by traditional Scandinavian barns and farmhouses. Featuring gabled roofs with a steep pitch Scandi Barn homes often have an open floor plan with exposed beams and lofty ceilings. This style focuses on creating a warm environment by incorporating natural materials such as leather, wood and stone throughout the interior. In terms of colour Scandi Barn design usually incorporates neutral shades with white or light-coloured walls and natural wood accents.
