Home Tour - Alamer Brighton by Fiona Lynch Interior Design

 
Fiona Lynch.jpg


Warmth and luxury and the two words that spring to mind when oooohing and ahhhhing over the absolutely stunning interiors of Alamer Brighton by Fiona Lynch Interior Design. We have always crushed on Fiona’s work and this project has us wanting to move in, now please!

The interiors approach is one of a relaxed elegance that draws inspiration from the very distinctive surrounding landscape of Brighton. Luxe materials in muted tones are artfully arranged & layered, providing a sophisticated backdrop to enhance the owners personal aesthetic.

An expansive entertainers kitchen with bespoke lighting  complements the concealed jewel like wet-bar adjacent in the common zones of the house.  A sense of separation and privacy from the entertaining area has been created to the master suite through darker joinery and finishes create a more intimate feeling. The bathrooms are elegant and soft using natural materials and textural accessories.”

The incredible design duo Zephyr & Stone have recently completed two new projects and they are beyond stunning… we wouldn’t expect anything less from these super sisters! 

Known for their use of beautiful materials, attention to detail and use of only the finest fittings and fixtures, they have blown us away with the interior palettes of these projects. Completing the look and giving both projects an extreme of level of luxury they have opted to use Quantum Quartz in Alpine Matte for the countertops.

Following on from the popularity of Quantum Quartz’s Alpine White, there is now a brand new matte version entitled Alpine Matte. Alpine Matte has a subtle warm white tone and velvety smooth finish which offers design flexibility and works perfectly with all interior styles.

“In this project we wanted to showcase two classic styles which were both contemporary yet timeless. We used Quantum Quartz Alpine Matte on the kitchen countertop in the ‘Melbourne Luxe’ Townhouse, as well as in the ensuite, bathroom, powder room and laundry. We also used it in the ‘Scandi’ Townhouse in the ensuite, bathroom and laundry.” Says Zephyr & Stone.

Matte finishes are very on trend in the design world right now, creating a sense of refined luxury due to their non flashy and paired back finishes. Quantum Quartz products are only the highest quality, they are extremely durable as well as being a very practical choice for your home. It is also a hygienic choice for your kitchen, bathroom and laundry and we love that it is backed by a 10 year limited warranty.

“Throughout both interior schemes we opted for honed and matte finishes where possible, therefore Alpine Matte was the obvious choice. The matte finish worked seamlessly with all our other matte finishes, including our honed tiles and matte basins. Like the original Quantum Quartz Alpine White, we found the Alpine Matte to be the perfect tone which worked well with all our finishes.” Says Zephyr & Stone.

Visit a WK Quantum Quartz showroom where you can comfortably explore all of the stone options available. They have many popular varieties of natural stone as well as 40 varieties of Quantum Quartz (engineered stone) and 10 QuantumSix+ porcelain options. And have no fear, because at any given time WK Quantum Quartz holds an inventory exceeding 30,000 slabs of stone ensuring that an abundance of stone is always readily available for any project, large or small.

Zimmermann wows with it's latest retail store!

 
ZimmermannSF-16.jpg

 

Australian fashion label Zimmermann has continued it’s world domination by launching it’s latest US boutique in San Francisco. And as much as we absolutely adore their fashions, we are crushing even harder on the interiors of this beautiful new retail space.

In keeping with the brand’s Australian roots, the new boutique is designed by Australian architect Don McQualter of Studio McQualter and is a physical embodiment of the ZIimmermann brand – relaxed femininity, an air of freshness and light, and unyielding optimism.

Zimmermann San Francisco was previously occupied by an art gallery giving the store ample square footage and grand high ceilings. In addition, Studio McQualter designed all custom metalwork, light fixtures, display tables, millwork and visual merchandising fixtures for both stores.

They mixed these designs with a selection of classic furniture, such as 1930’s Art Deco armchairs and Charles Dudouyt dining tables made of solid oak. Rare and expressive lighting elements such as 1976 vintage table lamps by Elio Martinelli for Matinelli Luce and a beautiful sculptured torch cut steel wall lamp with Murano glass designed by Marcello Fantoni are included to complete the overall store designs.

Home Tour - Bourne Road Residence by Studiofour

 
bourne road residence_01.jpg
bourne road residence_02.jpg
bourne road residence_05.jpg

 

The Bourne Road Residence by Studiofour was designed with the mindset of framing the outdoor space with the architecture becoming a backdrop for the family’s engagement with the garden. Stripping the architecture back to white rendered planes, this project became an exploration into enclosing the basic rituals of domestic life within restrained building forms.

In contrast to the modest and simple façade, upon entering, spaces unfold, through the private sleeping areas, through the internal garden, and culminating in the main living, cooking and dining area.

The garden must be passed through and experienced to reach the main areas of the house. Located within the centre of the house, one must continually move through and experience the garden; not only guests coming to the public areas of the home, but the occupants as they move from the public living areas to the private areas of sleeping and bathing.

 
bourne road residence_03.jpg
bourne road residence_04.jpg

 

Private areas of sleeping, bathing, study and reading are purposefully concealed from interior sight lines, whilst the public areas in contrast are completely open and connected to the internal garden. 

A key challenge for Studiofour when designing this residence was to balance the functional requirements for a family with two young children, while providing a calming sanctuary required for the professional couple. A private, acoustically separated, master wing and a secluded second living area enable the remainder of the house to remain fluid and relatively open. At all times the family are encouraged to connect with the landscape, while all internal areas are flooded with natural light and fresh air.

Introducing the norsuHOME - the renovation journey of a Nordic-inspired practical family home in just five months.

The team behind the Melbourne based Scandinavian Interiors store norsu interiors have been keeping themselves busy this year with a full renovation of Co-Founder Nat Wheeler’s original 1920’s Californian Bungalow in just five short months.

Nat, along with fellow Co-Founder Kristy Sadlier seized the chance to renovate when the Wheeler family purchased the Glen Iris property in late 2017 and the duo saw an opportunity to demonstrate their team’s styling prowess in norsu’s undeniably distinctive aesthetic.

Committed to designing and executing a superior look and feel at an affordable level (think flat pack kaboodle Kitchen cabinetry cleverly used as bedroom wardrobes), norsu partnered with an incredible line up of Australian and International suppliers on the project, including Caesarstone, Dulux, GlobeWest, Godfrey Hirst, Perini Tiles, Smeg and Sussex Taps.

Having thoroughly enjoyed renovating several homes in the past, the decision to capture the journey of this reno was easy states Nat. “We wanted to share the journey with our social media followers and prove that renovating doesn’t have to be an overwhelming experience. Our goal was to show viewers how to apply some creative choices during the renovation process without breaking the bank, while sharing tips on how to confidently select finishes, incorporate colour, create cohesiveness, and of course have some fun along the way.”

After the reno was complete, our day jobs kicked into gear, and we had some serious fun with the styling” states Kristy. “We live and breathe interiors, and truly believe you can create something magical by carefully selecting the right furniture, art and soft furnishings for your home. For us, it’s all about the feeling you get when you walk in that front door. By focusing on the right pieces, tones, placement and layering, you have the ability to create cosiness, joy and warmth which allows guests to instantly connect emotionally with the space.”

This project has been the perfect platform for the norsu team to officially launch their dedicated styling services arm, led by in-house qualified interior designer Lauren Bartlett-Bragg. “If you’re drawn to the norsuHOME and would like assistance recreating this look and feel within your own home, we offer a range of services to suit any budget” says Lauren.

Capturing the entire process on video through an informative, fun and relatable 11 part episode series, the duo share practical reno and styling tips, along with focusing on the various elements to consider when renovating, such as painting, flooring, tiling and lighting. The entire series is now available to view at www.norsuhome.com/episodes/ or via their dedicated norsuHOME YouTube Channel

Home Tour - The Kensington Cathedral by Ha Architects

Kensington Catherdal by Ha Architects

The Ridgeway is a historically consistent row of Edwardian weatherboard houses that descend down the ridge line of Kensington. The past decade has seen many of the houses in the street commission architecturally designed additions to the rear, creating a split personality for the dwellings. The rear cobblestone laneways are establishing their own identity one hundred years later.

"The Kensington Cathedral renovation is unashamedly progressive, but is more sympathetic and respectful of the renovations in the strip."

There's a famous quote from designer Bunny Williams, "If you love something, it will work. That's the only real rule." Red Door Project is built on that one, guiding principle. Crafting bespoke spaces that people love. And doing it with unbridled passion.

Their latest project is nothing short of outstanding, an inner city terrace located in Melbourne's Fitzroy. Undergoing a full renovation from the outside in, the transformation of this property is divine. 

A colour palette of soft neutrals with the addition of black elements such as tap ware, steel doors and kitchen cabinetry creates an aesthetically appealing and very considered interior scheme. The whole house is thoughtfully designed with every single detail perfected before signing off, an absolute must for the size constraints of inner city renovating and living.

“Our design style is contemporary and layered, and we are constantly drawn to Modernist design for inspiration, as well as the 1970’s-1980s for their architectural language and design detail”


 
Fitzroy Residence

Fitzroy Residence

 

Doherty Design Studio is a multi-disciplinary design practice based in Melbourne, who create tailored residential and commercial environments from concept through to completion throughout Australia. Mardi Doherty, Director of Doherty Design Studio graduated from Interior Design at RMIT, commenced a degree in Architecture, but dropped out to become an artist. She eventually detoured back into design, working for local Melbourne designer Chris Connell, before heading to London where she worked with Conran Design Group and David Collins Architecture & Design.  Mardi returned to Melbourne in 2000 when Federation Square was being designed, and spent three years working on the interiors of the National Gallery of Victoria.

Following her stint on the NGV Mardi decided to set up her own business - “The decision to open my own studio was quite intuitive just a question of time and place. I was naïve and young, and all I knew was that there was enquiry and interest in what I did, so I launched in! Says Director Mardi Doherty.

The studio draws on the strength of its professional in house team and collaborations with some of Australia’s leading creatives. Their aim is to enhance an interior experience through intuitive, holistic design principles and bespoke finishes that express individuality.

I lead the business but its certainly a sum of parts that keep it thriving. Our team is made up of a talented, hard-working, supportive group of designers.” Says Mardi.

"Its good to know that our studios work is contributing to the design industry, and we have a strong interest in mentoring, and encouraging younger designers.” says Mardi.

Fitzory Residence is one of Doherty Design Studio’s most applauded projects to date. The interior of this contemporary three-level terrace was designed for a couple opting to downsize to an inner city luxurious retreat. The interior takes its lead from the built form and the external materials used in landscaping to create a series of spatially diverse areas. From the entry, the home opens to reveal a richly layered material mix of: ceramic tiles, mirror, steel mesh, fluted glass, terrazzo tiles, stone, light and dark timber veneers, timber-lined ceilings and oak floors.

 

Church Residence

Each project is treated individually to reflect the clients needs and personality. We aim to express this through an artistic approach to customisation, materiality and bespoke detailing “

“Our job is to tell each client’s story in a meaningful way and to create something that is unique to them.” Says Mardi Doherty.

Church Residence is another of Doherty Design Studio’s stand out projects, a four-level, converted 1930s church that has been extensively renovated. The brief required a sophisticated, sympathetic response to the existing architecture. Spatial flow, light, and an outdoor bathing space were important. The project responds to the brief through employing minimal colours and materials and a base palette of white and pale grey ensures a light, calm feel while green acts as a contrasting neutral.

 

Ba Xa Eatery

Ba Xa - Commercial Project

 

Eatery Ba Xa is a brave and sassy, sweet and gentle casual Vietnamese noodle bar at Melbourne Airports International terminal. Doherty Design Studio & Techne Architecture and Design collaborated to create a noodle bar that goes well beyond the norms of an airport food venue, giving it a sophisticated, feminine and very Melbourne look. The brief for the fit out were complex; the design needed to offer a nod to it’s namesake, the Ba Xa (which translates as ‘female village chief or wifey, someone who is nurturing, strong and fun) but also reflect Melbourne’s dynamic food scene and the punchy flavours of Vietnamese cuisine. A daring feminine aesthetic is delivered via graphic colours and forms. Underpinning it’s look and feel is a palette of neutrals and nude tones, punctuated with blue and maroon. As astute mix of material – natural stone, leather, terrazzo, brass, timber veneer, mirror and mesh provide continuity throughout.

The dynamic with our clients is informal yet rigorous, as we respond to the issues each client and site presents." says Mardi Doherty.

Hawthorn Residence - a 1980s Cocks Carmichael designed home which needed its interiors brought up to date whilst still celebrating its strong architectural form and beauty. At the heart of the brief was a request to reinvigorate the interior while retaining the home's original features – glass bricks, grey terrazzo floor, pale timber-lined ceilings and front door. Key design aspects are delivered in the form of custom cabinetry, colour blocking, the repetition of pattern and geometric details. The studio responded boldly to their clients love of colour and appreciation of 1980s architecture.

Originally a 1990’s Neo-Spanish, yellow rendered house with a terracotta roof and dated interior, this stunning home has been renovated inside and out by Austin Design Associates to become an elegant town house.

With an excellent client brief, Austin Design Associates were inspired and encouraged to really transform this home. Externally, the house was painted a concrete grey and the terracotta roof tiles were replaced with slate, a new front door was installed along with steel windows across the rear which gave the house a whole new aesthetic.

Inside, dark parquetry flooring was replaced with large pale oak floorboards and the walls were painted a crisp white. A new kitchen with a refined layout introduced Carrara marble to the black steel window, oak floor and white wall scheme.

Austin Design were able to make small but significant changes to the floor plan, enabling them to enlarge the kitchen, create a butler’s pantry, add extra windows, enlarge existing window openings and create a window seat in the living room.

Home Tour | The Ivy Home by Seidler Group

 
Seidler_Glover_St_0146.jpg
 

 

The Ivy Home by Seidler Group in South Melbourne is a masterpiece in architectural design for small homes. South Melbourne has traditionally narrow Victorian homes and Seidler's solution to combat this was to combine landscape architecture and clever fabrication to create a spacious oasis of white and green, within the confines of the narrow block.

 

 
Seidler_Glover_St_0201.jpg
Seidler_Glover_St_0111.jpg
 

 

The interior is bright and airy with a raw, neutral colour palllette and each space is open and filled with light, giving this home fresh new life. The styling was undertaken by the clients themselves who have added beautiful furniture pieces and injected each space with colour and character, giving a real sense of style to the home.

 

 
Seidler_Glover_St_0084.jpg

A custom designed floating staircase maximises the outlook through a glazed southern perimeter overlooking an Ivy garden, offering a green backdrop against the adjoining boundary wall. The garage extensions timber facade references coastal tones injecting warmth into the outdoor entertaining space complete with a spa. Exposed timber fins direct views from the upper entertaining room into a lush backyard complete with a floating weatherboard bathing box, a further extension from the original home.

The most beautiful nail salon we ever did see...

PROFESSIONAIL | BY JASON BYRNE DESIGN

 

 

Professionail Hornsby asked Jason Byrne Design to create a new salon unique within the Professionail franchise family and what they have done is most likely the most divine nail salon EVER - check out the images below, I'm sure you'll agree with me!

The concept was inspired by the simplicity of the nail file, the shape helping to soften the linear lines which was required to order the stores functionality. The nail file concept evolved into privacy screens, niches for nail polish displays and a hand wash area. To encourage customers to explore the salon, zones were placed opposing each other, with the drying station, magazine and drinks station placed in a central zone. This central zone is the heart of the salon, providing direction and privacy for customers.

The salon celebrates femininity, embraces thoughtfulness whilst improving workflow. It’s modern, has a feeling of space; yet provides pockets of privacy.

 

JASON_BYRNE_DESIGN_PROFESSIONAIL_HORNSBY_03.jpg
JASON_BYRNE_DESIGN_PROFESSIONAIL_HORNSBY_09.jpg
 

Within the concept everyday materials were elevated to be luxurious. Paints were selected in flat and glossy finishes, appearing similar but offering different qualities and experiences. The accent green and blue paint is deliberately chosen to encourage customers to have fun with their nail polish colour selection. They are playful statement colours, surprising and bold, making customers look twice.

The end result – their client’s description of the store, ‘Cuban Barbie Gone Wild’ – and what’s better than that!

Professionail Hornsby was recently shortlisted as part of The Dulux Colour Awards 2018.

 

JASON_BYRNE_DESIGN_PROFESSIONAIL_HORNSBY_02.jpg
JASON_BYRNE_DESIGN_PROFESSIONAIL_HORNSBY_05.jpg
 

“We were inspired by the simplicity of the nail file while evolving the stores concept. The nail file shape softens the linear lines which order the stores functionality. The store embraces greys and pinks as the predominant colours. Flashes of green and blue delineate changes in the layering of materials. These greens and blues also seek to encourage customers to have fun with nail colour selection. The store celebrates femininity and emphasises the fun and beauty of a visit to a nail salon.” says Jason Byrne of Jason Byrne Design.

A stunning country abode - Limerick House by Solomon Troup Architects

Architect - Soloman Troup | Photogrpahy -  Tatjana Plitt

 

Brunswick based firm Solomon Troup Architects have recently completed their first project, Limerick House, located in Eganstown, about 10 minutes outside of Daylesford, Victoria. It is a modest addition to an existing house that was owned by the clients’ father, who built the house out of three disused railway cottages.

The form of the addition was inspired by the old dilapidated shearing sheds that inhabit the local area. Black-stained timber decking boards were used to clad the entire addition to further enhance the resemblance of the aged timber look of the local dilapidated shearing sheds, whilst silver-top ash lining boards add warmth to the interior space and contrast the black exterior.

Interiors to swoon over... and at an RSL you say?!

TomMarkHenry delivers their authentic design approach to Rooty Hill RSL

 

Made by the Hill is a new social destination at Rooty Hill RSL that’s bringing the Scandinavian style of boutique bars and city cafés to Western Sydney. Designed by TomMarkHenry in collaboration with Altis Architecture, the revitalised space is relaxed and comfortable with a soft, natural and durable aesthetic to cater for a broad range of demographics and functions.
 
Facilitating this variety of functions, and accommodating large numbers of people and wide-ranging demographics required careful spatial planning. Circulating around the new island bar, the open-plan floor space has been divided into a series of zones to offer a more human scale and provide different levels of comfort and atmosphere. Banquette areas and long tables are for larger groups; and intimate pockets, booths and counter-height bars are for smaller groups and couples.

The gentle palette of dusty pinks, pale yellows and soft greys complement the soft curves of the seating, booths and bars, which are drenched in natural light from the floor-to-ceiling window façade. Greenery throughout Made by the Hill adds contrasting colour and life.

The Scandinavian-style furnishings, which offer durability and longevity in both practical and aesthetic terms, have rounded forms, organic lines and wooden frames. This includes classic pieces such as Thonet’s spindle-back Arka armchair; the cane-woven Benko chair; the Ironica beechwood dining chair as an updated version of the iconic Windsor; and Studioilse’s two-seater De La Espada with its high stick back. These are matched with contemporary upholstered chairs with enveloping forms that still reference Danish design. Natural materials continue throughout Made by the Hill with oak and walnut tabletops, Blackbutt timber, stone and marble, and leather, canvas and wool.
 
TomMarkHenry thrives on the creative and collaborative development of unique and exceptional spaces such as Made by the Hill, and its authentic and adaptable approach ensures the dynamic studio continues to push the boundaries of design and expectation.
