Blue Fruit was engaged to return the maisonettes back into one dwelling, while bringing the floor plan up to date for modern family life.

 The palette was inspired by the original lead light of the front door, with dark "lead" toned floorboards, a new smoky grey dado and hand made pale green glass tiles used as a splash back in the open plan kitchen.

All in the details

All in the details

Re-imagining a traditional Edwardian detail,
we installed a new timber dado in the corridor
and painted it in a richly warm grey
 to create a sense of depth and movement.

 New contemporary style LED lighting was installed throughout the home, to contrast with traditional details like the original timber fretwork & ceiling roses.

 Brodware tapware, made in Australia to a high standard of quality, were selected so the bathrooms will last for this young busy family.

Inspired by the early 1900s when
the villa had originally been built,
we added elements of Edwardian detailing
(like chair rails & deep skirtings)
throughout the sunlight-drenched family living areas.
