Updated Art Deco

Clients are a lovely couple living in a three bedroom apartment in East Melbourne with Art Deco touches. The brief included an enhancement of the Art Deco style, bringing more light and life into the spaces and making the entire apartment more practical and beautiful.
The clients moved out all of their belongings and rented nearby for a number of months whilst this took place; as every room was gutted, from the flooring up.

The new parquetry floor was the first to be installed, with a beautiful Oak laid in a Herringbone pattern throughout, replacing the dark green marble tiles and 60's Vic Ash square pattern, for a more sophisticated palate on which to build the new style.
The client's own flair and penchant for Florence Broadhurst influenced the outcome, especially in the Master Bedroom, with some stunning results.
The Entry is now unrecognisable; going from an enclosed wardrobe-like hall closet to a bespoke fitted buffet and custom wall mirror pattern with side wall sconce lighting and a red marble atop painted finish panelled doors with wrought iron hardware.
I have no doubt they have substantially increased the value of their home and the new liveability is priceless.

The new Entry 'After' photo. What a transformation from the uninspiring closet to the fitted buffet (still able to house all the wine). The panelled doors and drawers are finished with a metallic paint and black wrought iron handles. the mirror is made up of 9 panels and fixed to the wall to reflect the room and light back into the apartment. the floor was previously a mash ...More

This is the Ensuite 'After' it was gutted and transformed into a bright and light space with beautiful fixtures and practical usage. Fixtures remained in the same place to save dollars which were then redirected into the imported tapware and towel rails. The mirrored overhead cabinets, with lighting underneath, and mirrored splashback mean this small room is filled with light e...More

The bathroom showing the bath with shower over. This was the compromise for combining the laundry into this room, but one the client was more than wiling to make for a second bathroom. the glass screen is hinged for ease of access and cleaning.

This is a (slightly distorted) birds-eye view of the new combined bathroom and laundry showing the wc, bath with shower over, farmhouse sink, laundry zone. A frosted glass entry door also lets light into this room whilst still offering privacy. Hidden from view is the ironing board which is in the top right drawer and stacks away when not needed. LED strip lighting under all t...More

By removing the wall and incorporating the laundry into the family bathroom we were able to increase the usable space for both rooms and apply the same high end finish to the laundry as the other wet rooms. Zoning the usage within the new space keeps the tasks dedicated and fit for purpose. this clever ironing board folds away into the top drawer and you can forget about ironin...More

The Laundry and Bathroom were combined to create one large. light filled space. Here you can see the under-bench washing machine, the butlers sink which doubles as a hand basin and you can't see the ironing board which is hidden in the top drawer and pulls out when needed.

The Master Bed is now light and cosy. Who wouldn't want to snuggle into this bed now? the dark grey velvet bedhead grounds the bed in the space and is balanced with the grey throw and a rug placed at the end of the bed to warm the tootsies at night.

This is a 'After' picture of the Master Bedroom. The bedside tables were retained, as were the table lamps, sheer drapes and white bedspread. But just see the transformation with the Oak Parquettry Floor, dark grey velvet upholstered bedhead as well as the grey and white Florence Broadhurst feature wallpapered wall.

This shows the Kitchen 'Before' the make-over. Although the cabinets are white and their is under cupboard lighting, the dark green marble floor and granite benchtop and splashback absorb all the light and made this kitchen feel dark and cramped. Check out th 'After' shot with mirrored splashback.
