Robust character and refined eccentricity

Rusted gates, earthy stone, intriguing artefacts and a touch of the extraordinary. It could only be Clemens Hill Vineyard.

Our concept began with the iconic rusted gates, before weaving its way through each element of the quirky and artistic home. Its robust character and refined eccentricity captured by renowned designers and local craftspeople; Christopher Boots, Lindsey Wherrett and Interia.

What began as a brief for a white bathroom became a celebration of considered materiality, unexpected details and the workmanship of Glenn and Justyn.

The fusion of trust and desire

A single vision, to enmesh art and design into the client’s daily lives. A concept, larger than life and a place for reveries where moments are mused away.
 
Working with Simon Ancher for pieces that twist and turn. A torched table resembling a guitar plectrum, a spinal wall sculpture and a vertical blackwood leaf form, allowing light to dance through the central void.
 
Maria Gigney’s metal, grid like architecture is at once unobtrusive and yet strong. Our interior pays tribute to her considered style, weaving, interlocking and creating moments of pause. Black with rich, saturated ochre embracing the unicity of forms.
 
Natural light teems through the space, expanding the landscape while heightening the differing lines. Trust and desire are fused together in the most arresting way.

Adventure Bay Retreat, The Lair

We were privileged to have worked with our client, Jan Glover, on the interior design for a five star accommodation at Adventure Bay Retreat, The Lair, on Bruny Island. This exquisite retreat showcases Tasmanian furniture design and art to the highest level. 

The beautiful concrete flooring runs throughout the whole accommodation. An opulent rug occupies the living space and complements the outstanding cabinet by Stuart Williams with an image of The Friars off South Bruny.

The interior design for the three bathrooms was carefully considered ensuring they contained a sense of luxury and warmth. The beautiful bespoke basins in each bathroom were designed and made by Hobart ceramicist Lindsey Wherrett. The bowls have a unique texture and have been individually hand thrown. They are a true delight to experience.

The three bedrooms showcase the floating single bed and clipped wing stool in Tas Oak by Simon Ancher. We have introduced some colour and pattern in a contemporary way. In one room there is a monochromatic theme with bold black and white bedding…a fun element. Tasmanian artists Jonathan Partridge, Mandy Renard and Nic Goodwolf feature thoughout the bedrooms and the retreat.

As you descend the staircase, Mandy Renard’s ‘that’s how the light gets in’ looks stunning. It was chosen for it’s dramatic effect, bold colour and movement with the ability to captivate the viewer.

It truly is a sanctuary to be in and was an absolute joy to be involved in the stunning project.

Winner: Best of Houzz client service 2019

Valentine interiors + design is very proud to be announced as a ‘Best of Houzz winner for 2019’ in the category of client service.

This award is in recognition of the outstanding service we have provided to both our clients and the Houzz community, 2019

We always aim to ensure our client’s are satisfied with the interior design and the customer service that we provide. When designing a kitchen or bathroom we always have an extensive briefing session with the client to establish how a client moves and functions within their existing space. This helps us to gain a clear picture of how the new design must function, as well as having a strong aesthetic appeal.

We believe good communication and listening to our client needs forms the basis of a successful working relationship.

 

 

 

40 Gorgeous Kitchen Islands

We were thrilled to be selected by one of the writers, Niki Bruce, at Houzz to be featured in an article on their site, titled ’40 Gorgeous Kitchen Islands’.
 
The article talks about the island bench being the norm and the hub of entertainment. The discussion about our kitchen design that was selected revolved around the use of a monochromatic scheme with the sink in the island bench.

We welcome Hazel to our team at Valentine interiors + design. She has a vivacious way of designing, loves exploring new solutions, great with people and in her spare time is a volunteer for the Royal Duck Watching Society.

We love having her on our team (although her work productivity is a little slow so far) and you may see her working on future projects with us…either side of her siesta.
