A fabulous feature in inside magazine, on our short-listing for the national IDEA awards, Battery Point Living project!
We are very proud to be featured amongst some of the best names in the country. The IDEA winners will be announced at a gala event in February 2022, stay tuned!
Thank you to Anjie Blair for her stunning photography for our project. Finally, a big thank you to Maria Gigney for her incredible architecture that set the scene for us to integrate our interior design with.
This week was an exciting one for our team, being short-listed for the national Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), which celebrates the best of Australian interior and product design.
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.

Our Naomi giving a talk to the interior design students at Foundry about life after graduating.
Naomi discussed her work in commercial event spaces, creating temporary installations, and preparing a folio to enter the interior design industry.
Naomi is a First Class Honours graduate from the RMIT Bachelor of Interior Design and had some fabulous tips and advice for the students.
Naomi spoke with confidence, engaging the students who are aspiring to be interior designers. Her thought-provoking folio was a perfect example to show as the students were preparing their own folios for assessment.
A great discussion at Bentley Workspaces on having all the experts in the room at the beginning of a project. Thank you to Nicole and the team at Bentley for allowing Valentine Interiors & design to have the opportunity to be part of this.
Laura Callingham, architect from Studio ilk, Peter Ventieri, Director of In2Construction and Jane Valentine from Valentine Interiors & Design came together to chat about how engaging all the experts in the initial stage of a brief will ensure a truly integrated project and an exceptional client outcome.
Nicole from Bentley Workspaces summarised the talk following on from the day:
‘From learning about the different elements and thought process that goes into designing spaces through to the practicality and effectiveness of the build. There’s a level of collaboration and understanding that needs to happen for a project to succeed.
Some key takeaways:
1. Get the right people to the table right from the start.
2. Know your value and what you can offer and be transparent with communicating these.
3. Leverage off each other’s expertise and solve problems together, always.’
