As we look back on the year that was, and all of the spectacular interiors that were created by our client’s, we have to mention a few that continue to stand out… whether it be for design innovation, beauty, wow factor or just being plain different!
In no particular order (it was difficult enough to just choose 10 favourites, let alone rank them!) are our top 10 projects of 2017:
LUXURY HARBOUR SIDE RETREAT
Style: This project just oozes luxury and pulls its style from both French and Georgian inspiration.
Why we love it: Besides living next to one of the most iconic harbours in the world, this home is private enough to be a hidden treasure. The classic design and bespoke workmanship, with an unrelenting attention to detail throughout and phenomenal steel stair case at the core of it’s 3 levels is beyond impressive.
Style: A restoration of the Long Gallery in the Australian Museum.
Why we love it: Who wouldn’t be excited to be part of such an iconic and important piece of restoring history?! This project was an honour to be a part of and something we took very seriously to do the building justice. Not only are the world-class treasures on exhibition, but our beautiful timber handrail.
Style: Hamptons. Hands down one of the most excellent examples of the style we have seen.
Why we love it: This home captures everything that is classic and beautiful about the Hampton’s style and applies it with flawless perfection. This project has inspired many of our customers to apply Hampton’s profiles in their own homes, and is a home that just never loses it’s wow factor or appeal no matter how many times we look at it.
Style: Old world charm meets Hamptons inspiration.
Why we love it: Providing timber mouldings for a heritage refurbishment is a big responsibility, ensuring that you recognise a buildings history, while bringing something new and beautiful. The Manly Pavillion refurbishment did just that and has created an interior that is just as stunning as the Manly wharf views from it’s windows.
Style: Classic meets modern meets Georgian meets just WOW.
Why we love it: The classic use of traditional styling with wainscoting and architectural timber mouldings fused with a modern monochrome palette creates this most stunning interior that in one word is ‘inspirational.’ The staircase in this home was featured in Houzz Top Staircases of 2017.
MODERN CITY STYLING
Why we love it: These luxury city apartments were designed to maximise the stunning city skyline and harbour views, but create a homely space with contemporary design and features. Intrim’s revolutionary Series 800 Shadowline skirting was used throughout together with Intrim SK50 skirting boards, to help achieve the clean lines and modern look.
LONDON HIGH STREET AT THE PONDS
Style: Aged care common area.
Why we love it: Not only does the use of interior timber mouldings look fantastic, the concept for the use of them and creation of a replica London High Street in this aged care facility is innovative and well deserves a mention. Gilmore Interior Design designed this interior around dementia principles and received a Commendation in the UDIA NSW Awards for Excellence in Aged Care.
Style: Victorian with some modern touches.
Why we love it: No detail has been overlooked in this magnificent Victorian styled home. The use of Intim’s internal & external mouldings helped pack a punch to achieve the desired look. This home is magnificent and extravagant and we particularly loved sharing this interior journey with this client.
CANBERRA CALVARY HOSPITAL
Style: Private hospital.
Why we love it: The Calvary hospital boasts premium hospital rooms with state of the art single rooms with hotel like ensuites and finishes. What we also love about this project is that it was built with environmental sustainability initiatives and best practice approaches to minimising energy consumption, waste management and reducing their environmental footprint. The use of Intrim’s timber handrail, bump rail and Victorian Ash skirting boards helped achieve a more homely and less clinical interior.
