CMD project – warehouse happenings

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Still some finishing details for this project to come -I have custom designed a rug for the living room (can not wait to see it!) and some cool furniture for the entrance too. Its been an exciting project to be involved with as its such a unique space.

Kudos to the architect on this project Robert Miles who designed really great bones for this space. I’d like to think our interior designs & finish choices have enhanced his original vision!

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!

Project happenings

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I had the great pleasure of working with the very lovely chick & super excellent photographer Martina Gemmola. We shot a project that I have previously shared with you  here & then a little more here. And because I’m a caring sharing lass (sometimes with an over-sharing tendency -truth be told!)  Im going to share even more of it!

So checks it out!

 

Thank you Martina! You were such a pleasure & great fun to work with!!

Warehouse happenings

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

And so here I am!

I thought it was about time to share some happenings that have been keeping me busy of late & I’ve been busy!

One of my current projects is a pretty cool warehouse conversion. I  cant wait to show you more of that, but for now we will make do with some pictures taken mostly on my phone  for now.

(Psst – I think its long been established that I am a terrible photographer- look past the blurs people!)

I was so excited when this wallpaper was installed on site. Look closely.

This is in the master bedroom! Oh yes!

This is a snippet of the powder room upstairs. I think the tap is super sexy. but so is the basin. And the tiles!

This is the ensuite down stairs.  As you can clearly tell by this picture – its not finished, nor was it styled!! But I couldn’t not share! The stone bath, mosaic tiles & custom coloured tap ware – its a pretty special place to be!

Upstairs its all happening too!

We’ve got some pressed metal action in the ceiling & one the facing which makes me happy to look at! And the up-stand (which I was so excited about seeing out of my head that I had a ‘moment’ when it was installed!)  is a huge piece of reclaimed timber that was previously used as part of the near by Princess Pier. Its so chunky & delicious. Yes, I am saying that a giant chunky piece of wood is delicious!  Actually when I was first discussing this with my brilliant cabinet maker, he made a note that ‘it had to be the dream piece of wood’! He was taking the piss ofcourse – but as long as I got my point across Im happy!! & he delivered!

This just gives another view of the up-stand. I loves it hard.

In the living room we are waiting on some new furniture still, but this will give you a small idea of whats going on over there. And yep, that pole there is what you are thinking!

Its a house with a lot of character & been so excellent to work on! Still a fair bit to happen before its all done – but i just couldnt wait to share some of what has been chocking up my brain space of late!

I will also be sharing soon some other projects – very polar oposite to this one that have been keeping me busy!

 

So pretty in pink

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Almost a year ago I posted here about a hot pink velvet chair I really really really wanted to do for a project I was working on as it was just perfect for the project – perfect I tells you! It didn’t look like it was going to happen due to boring things in life like budgets (yawn!), but then…the clouds parted, the sun shone through & here tis!  A very lucky little little lass (as in a 4 year old little lass!) has a very pretty chair in her beautiful room!  Its as good as I knew it would be & it makes me happy!

Just to clarify, it also makes the baby mamma happy  and the little lass whose room it is also was quite excited by it…perhaps not as much as a new kitten or battery operated something would’ve – she is only 4, & 4 year olds generally dont get as antz pantz excited as someone like me does about furniture!

In the same room the bedhead was also something I was eagerly waiting on! So in the spirit of sharing, have a looksee: beautiful chocolatey linen with feature buttons in pink & white stripe for just a lil bit of sumpin sumpin! & the cushions are bit of  eye candy too!

 

So thats todays deliveries for your perusal! I will be back soon to share lots of other exciting things that have been happening over in my part of the world!

But  thats enough about me – whats been happening with you?!

Clearly its a fun project to be involved in!

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!!

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!

 

The recent happenings

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

In my world, it is so exciting seeing things come to life that have been rattling around in my head for a while!

I  liken it to having babies all over town and I’m the surrogate. (Is that weird?! Did I just gross you out?!)

Moooooving on….

These are some of my recent project happenings:

This morning I finally got to see these delicious Patricia Urquiloa tiles that I was so excited to use, laid on the bathroom floor of a project I am working on.

I love them so much. SO SO much.

Also this morning in the same house we installed some gorgeous Roman blinds.

This is the best picture I took with my crappy camera, so you will just have to imagine, or take my word for it on how good they look!

psst: The sconce on the wall in real life isn’t as tiny as it appears to be in this picture!

Still a fair bit to get done on this house when time & budgets allow! (real life ruins all the best laid plans!) but its all coming along so beautifully.

Meanwhile, over on the other side of town:   This renovation project is really starting to take shape.

 

The en-suite bathroom is being slowly installed.

The tiles are also in a dark grey, but very different from those above!  just in case you sensed a theme!

I cant wait to see this done, I’m really excited about this design!

 

The paint colour has been confirmed  & after lots of tests my original choice was given the go ahead – phew!!

So now you have an insight into some of my current ‘babies’!

One life lesson I had to learn early on in my career – patience is a virtue!

 

 

Deep in thought

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

I’ve been spending a fair bit of time this last week thinking about knobs.

Oh no not that kind of knob you filthy minx… I’m thinking about cabinetry knobs.

Searching for some decent looking knobs (hey, stop it!) led me to these little numbers. They will look pretty special on some custom cabinetry I’ve got in the works.

For real, they will!

Still thinking about knobs.  This time  door knobs.

Did you know that the majority of door knobs on the market nowadays are pretty ugly?

Fact. (well opinion, but its my blog – so my way!)

 

Just when you thought I was solely thinking about knobs.  (don’t go there!) I also thought about towel rails.

This squared and simple number will fit perfectly into the bathroom project currently being installed.

As well as all the thinking,  I’ve also been wondering just what was on the mind of the creator of this stained glass window in my clients bathroom?

Hmm. Refer to pic 1?

To break up all the thinking, and all that wondering I do a fair bit of day dreaming too about schemes  I am working on…

So  day dreaming about just how awesome this wallpaper will look on the cathedral shaped ceiling in my clients bedroom. awesome!

And also day dreaming and about this scheme for a living room in an art deco house. so pretty!

So that’s it. Thats what is on my mind of late.

I’ve told you before that I am deep!
