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.

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.

Bathroom Design Clifton Hill

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.

Kitchen Design Mentone

Now, this quirky (and gorgeous) Scottish couple wanted something a little different for their Mentone beauty. They have a collection of beautiful artwork & curios that they had acquired from all over the world. These special pieces needed the perfect backdrop that didn’t take over. They also required a functional space with as much accessible storage & bench space as possible. We opened up the area as much as possible and featured every mod-con available whilst choosing a door style & door furniture to give the kitchen a dose of extra personality.

This Sandringham client described herself as ‘boring beige’ and wanted a very neutral interior with plenty of storage. We re-worked all of her draftsman’s working drawings to provide just that. Although we would describe her as very elegant, with discerning taste. We subsequently created a beautiful interior with abundant storage & finished the job by furnishing their home to be harmonious with this gorgeous Edwardian beach house.

Normandy Road, Elwood

This Elwood home was featured in a 2004 Home beautiful magazine. We completely redesigned and changed the entire layout of this house just prior to builder starting. There were huge problems with how the spaces worked together. The clients also couldn’t work out why the architects plans made them feel uneasy. We redrew it and pulled it together to create a house that deserved the best view of the bay in Elwood. This job has aspects of what is now essentially the very popular Hampton’s style, but created 11 years ago.
