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!

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!

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!

 

 

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!

 

 

 

En-suite bathroom before & after

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

 

Camilla Molders Design

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently had some photographs taken of some recent projects.  I’m still in a caring sharing kinda mood, so thought I would share a before & after of a recent en-suite bathroom that I have done.  I had posted a sneak peak of this just after the tiling was done, so it may be a little familiar!

The before bathroom was in quite a state. The previous homeowner had done a lot of the renovations on the house himself -a master renovator he was not: the floor was about fall through, the twin basins shared a tap that barely reached either basin, and the overall design was haphazard.

Before…

Before the work of Camilla Molders Design

Still before…

Before the work of Camilla Molders Design

& now for the after…

My brief was to create an en-suite bathroom that was also a parents retreat -including a large bath and ahem, a throne, with ample storage for reading material!

I have also designed the kitchen in this house.  My clients love living with colour so we continued the kitchen colour theme by using the same bamboo cabinetry and solid chunky reclaimed iron-bark vanity top. (Side note: as it’s a parent’s en-suite and not a family bath, I was OK about using timber in here. The clients know about how to best upkeep timber and love it muchly, so we did!)

The tiles are the feature of the room & I think they are a bit special! (They are hand made here in Melbourne with a crackle glaze finish & so beautiful!) Originally I was going to lay them in a ‘designed random pattern’, but when I was laying them out, I fell in love with them as a subtle stripe.

Rather than sticking with the same floor plan as was, I swapped it around and put in a much larger window with the bath below and put the shower and throne on the other side of the room. The cabinetry is designed with hidden storage everywhere so all the panels open for ample storage. The centre nook is purely for a lil sumpin pretty to live in. Hand blown glass pieces do the trick!

The floor and shower walls were laid with a natural stone from Aeria Country floors . Natural stone is a long process to install, but so worth it with its subtle texture and natural beauty.

And that’s that! Bathroom renovation complete!

I’m working on another 3 bathrooms at the moment! All very very different to each other – this is just how I like it! I love a space that truly reflects the people who live in the space and I am proud to say that this bathroom certainly does reflect the lovely colourful characters who bathe there!!

 

Just doing your business.

I was wonder what it IS that differentiates a a powder room from a bathroom?  (oh yeah – just another of the BIG questions!) So I looked to the inter-web to find me the answer!

It was Yahoo Answers who were kind enough to offer up the word! Simply, its a small room with toot and basin.  Kinda knew it would be. But now I Know!  

 

So I went on the look-see in the inter-web world for a lill bit of powder pretty:

Obviously the same again – but a different view of things!  

I am a bit smitten with this room! I don’t consider myself a girly girl – but I want to hang out here with my fluffy kitten heeled slippers and – well, powder my nose!

Oh and THIS one - it gives me feelings of hardcore love and devotion.

So after that picture that has me shifting in my seat, back to something not as uncomfortable! yet still a little disconcerting:

Ahem, look closer at the above pic. Just a little bit more. Do you see it?  The fish -In the jars.

Apparently Siamese fighting fishies don’t really want much more space than this to live in - Apparently. 

 

I think the littlest room in the house is always a good place for a spot of glam!
