MALVERN : QUEEN ANNE EDWARDIAN VILLA
Full renovation + alterations.
Builder: Stuart Greig
What had once been a gracious villa
was converted into maisonettes in the 1960s.
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.
Edwardian style was re-interpreted
with a fresh 21st century simplicity and brightness.
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.
made in Australia
to a high standard of quality,
were selected so the bathrooms
will last for this young busy family.
Old inspires New
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.
Bonnie & Neil hand printed cushions
add a gentle splash of pattern and colour
to the main bedroom.
