Maybe you have guessed but this is Jo-Anne & Michael’s house in Edithvale. They love colour & luscious eye catching textiles which they have been collecting for years. You can certainly see that they don’t always design in their own taste. Jo-Anne’s love of cooking and entertaining shines through in this abundant & eclectic home.

Where do we even start on this beautiful gem? Although Art Deco, the existing stunning timber wall panelling & picture rails throughout, screamed ‘Arts & Crafts’ style to us. After a little bit of research, our clients in Bamfield Street, Sandringham, agreed & let us roll with our ‘vision’. The blinds, light fittings and other décor all are symbiotic with this lovely style, mostly sourced from the US. The house oozes a warmth & elegance that has been respected throughout the whole transition. The detailed & accurate manufacture of the cabinetry throughout shows the brilliance of our favourite cabinetmaker, an artisan skill that has been lost on most.

2oth century Scandinavian with a twist. This old 50s gem located in St.Kilda was given a new lease on life with cool crisp square-set detail & warm blonde timbers. The horizontal detail throughout the design pulled it together beautifully. It also helps the photographer when your client has some amazing eclectic pieces.

The client’s brief on this job in Elsternwick was very definitive; she wanted a much larger walk-in robe & ensuite, a much larger main bathroom and an elegant powder room. As the powder room wasn’t in the existing footprint and we needed to make each space bigger, the only way that we could achieve to create larger spaces was to design and have built an extension to the boundary that could hold the ensuite & walk-in robe. The other insistence by our client was to create rooms to be in tune with the existing grandeur of her beautiful brick Victorian. She wanted us to hide the extension so that it didn’t looked tacked on either. She wanted it to also be very functional at the same time. Have a look at the exterior photos. You couldn’t tell and we have even designed matching leadlight to match the gorgeous originals.

Our client in this Clifton Hill job needed to be re-organised and given a lot more storage (there was none in the house). We also encouraged him to let us design and build a small extension on the side of his house. This would include an ensuite and extra robe space. Being a client with slightly eccentric taste and having a collection of unusual artefacts & textiles collected from around the world, we played with colour and interesting pieces as we designed the joinery and finishing the job when we’d completed furnishing the whole house. Being outside in nature was very important to our client, so we featured all of the main rooms overlooking a beautifully landscaped, wall garden.

Imbros Street, Hampton

Just as our clients’ in the Hampton home were about to build, they ask us to ‘cast an eye’ over the drawings to make sure everything worked properly. After a lengthy briefing session, we completely re-worked the house drawings, moving walls and recreating more interesting spaces. We incorporated lovely window seats; a functional butler’s pantry; a very interesting ensuite bathroom; a more functional walk-in robe and detailed all of the other rooms to make them work properly. We designed joinery throughout that was in keeping with the style our client had grown to love. She had multiple images in a scrapbook of houses she loved the feel of that she had compiled for a long time before the project.

Church Street, Brighton

This sophisticated old red brick Brighton beauty located in Church Street, needed to be paid the respect she deserved. Our client brief was to make the whole space function better. We made the dining space more sociable & comfortable and restored the classical ambience after having a dysfunctional, identity crisis in the 90s with a contemporary kitchen that didn’t fit in space or context. She’s much happier now!
