House & Garden top 50

Friday, October 4th, 2013

I went to a rather lovely party this week. It was the launch for Australian House & Garden magazines annual top 50 rooms.

The party was held at an event space called Twotonmax in North Melbourne. Its a cool venue that is a blank space that can be frocked up to suit any occasion.

Im not sure who did the styling for this do, but it looked very special with flower garlands & fairy lights suspended overhead which set a great party mood!

This picture was posted on instagram by House & Garden prior to guests arriving. So, before it got messed up!

Surprise surprise – I took a blurry pic of the flower pretties (my title of worst photographer ever isn’t going anywhere quickly!)  But if you squint & tilt your head a little, you can see that it is pretty!

Two large screens projected the images of the rooms that feature in this issue.

& looksee – that is my kitchen project up on the big screen! woohoo! I made the cut for this years top 50 rooms!

And here tis in the glossy pages of the magazine!

My hot date for the evenings celebrations was the lovely Martina Gemmola who was the photographer of my projects picture.

We glam’d ourselves up for the eve & joined the party for a bit of ra ra! Despite me not being in top ra ra form, it was a great night & lovely to meet some of the H&G Sydney team & some designers from interstate who has made the trip down for the do!

This is the second time my work has been included in the top 50, my first being in 2011 for my dining room. See that here .

The November issue hits the shelves on Monday & its a good one!

Its a great honour to be featured, so thank you House & Garden magazine!

Dalai Lama in Melbourne

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

So something a bit exciting happened in my world last week –  a project that I have been working on for a few months came to fruition.  I was lucky enough to have been invited, as well as my good friend & fellow designer Jessica Nixon to design & set the Melbourne stage for His Holiness the Dalai Lama!

Naturally I said yes – instantly to this invitation!

Jess & I thought it was a great opportunity to showcase some local Australian design so we worked collaboratively with Jardan Furniture who made all of the beautiful furniture for the event & Philip Stokes Glass who made the gorgeous sculptural vases for the flowers.

And this is how it turned out:

Apparently the rug was gifted to His Holiness and travels with him. I love the colours & it was naturally the starting point for the stage design.

A friend commented that she wanted to turn the rug around. It is protocol for the lotus design to face His Holiness. And now you know!

Jess & I arranged the flowers ourselves – we thought it was fitting to include some lotus flowers in the arrangement!

& here His Holiness is!

(Until I get better photographs of His Holiness sitting on the furniture – my Iphone pictures of the onstage screen are the best I can do!)

& of course I had to include this selfie of Jess & I with our official accreditation badges for the event!

It was quite a thrill to create a client file in my computer named Dalai Lama! It has certainly has been a career highlight & I am very proud of  what our collaboration achieved! I’ll be smiling about this one for a while yet!

Psst – All photos are just picture I took myself on my Iphone.  Hopefully I will have some through soon that the official photographer took on the day

 

 

So this happened

Friday, March 8th, 2013

I was rather chuffed to hear the news this week that I had a won a award for 2 of my projects in the inaugural Your Future Home Green Interiors Awards!

I won 2 of the categories!

One for my bamboo bathroom project:

 

& the second for my bamboo kitchen project

 

The major sponsor & one of the judges was Jen Bishop of Interiors Addict had some particularly lovely words to say about my projects:

“Camilla Molders so impressed us that she won both the kitchen and bathroom categories. These rooms in her Elwood project made great use of bamboo, a renewable and durable material. It also looks fantastic and gives the kitchen and bathroom a much warmer feel than you’d usually expect. I loved the handmade Australian tiles and the environmentally friendly paint choices too.”

Well, isnt that a bit nice!

House & Garden Bathroom Lookbook

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Say WHAT?!

Thats right!

That IS my project on the COVER of the new House & Garden Bathroom lookbook! and then some more on the inside!

and in case you thought I was fibbing, thats my name just there. SEE!!

Camilla Molders Design, Interior Design Melbourne, Interior Decoration Melbourne

Photography by Armelle Habib who did an amazing job!

 

Look see here if you would like to see some more of that project – before & afters.

A lovely person over on my facebook page (ahem… go like me, um it!!) commented that she was glad she didnt have to do the layout of the tiles! It was a bit fiddly & different than a usual tile layout, so I thought I would share some of the pictures I took while working it out!

Originally the plan was to place these tiles in an organised random pattern. I admit, there was some procrastination on my part when it came to working out this organised chaos! I’m sure a computer program would’ve been simpler, but I am a bit old school and like to draw things out, so I made a life sized template on my living room floor & started to play! (cant accuse me of not being hands on!!)

Starting to get a feel for the layout… this picture shows half most of layout as random, and starting to play with graduating colour stripe layout.

I feel hard in love with the graduated stripe. It meant we had to order a few more tiles & delay the install a week while they were hand made! But I think it was well worth waiting on.

See, it HAD to be striped.

I had the easy part! Bruce the tiler had a very difficult job but did it beautifully! These tiles are hard enough to keep straight just placed on the floor. I dont want to think about hard it would’ve been adding gravity to the mix!

Anyway, its not quite mid day, but the champagne is cooling ready to celebrate my first ever magazine cover! CHEERS!

New beginnings

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

2011, Happy to be done with you!

2012, we are going to get along real well.

A nice way for me to start the year off to a good start was to see my work featured on the HGTV blog in a story on their ‘favourite bright, bold bathrooms’

Camilla Molders Design

Thank you HGTV for featuring my work on your blog!

And so for the new year

I’m really excited for the year ahead. I’ve got some really exciting projects in the pipeline and after a few days of chilling out, I am itching to get back into my work. But as I am working on evening up the work/ Life balance thing, I’ve got a few travel adventures planned and some personal creative projects too. So all looking to be a productive year!

Oh, and also I am going to aim to be more regular with my blog posts. I’m never going to be an every day blogger (how - HOW do people do that!) but I will give myself the aim to blog of atleast twice a week. OK… maybe just once a week!

so, we’ll soon see- watch this space!
