Edwardian Leadlight in Eaglemont

This is an extract of a post by blue fruit interior architecture + design, which illustrates the lovely leadlight and Federation details in an Eaglemont (Vic) Arts and Crafts villa.

Blue Fruit re-worked the layout to suit a busy young family, making the Kitchen the heart and soul of the home by

  • relocating it in what had been the formal Dining room, and

  • transforming the Parlour into a new, much more welcoming, Dining room, now beautifully linked to the Kitchen via the original archway.

All rooms were renovated to make the house consistent in materials & style, using quality fittings throughout.

THE CHARM OF THE EDWARDIAN

"The house was lavished with care and attention from top to toe, with original elements restored and re-used wherever possible."

Sweet little crystal chandeliers were polished and re-hung in new locations upstairs to catch the natural daylight.

Leadlight was repaired and replaced where glass had broken, and a marathon effort of sanding and painting brought the elegant timberwork back to life.

Materials and fittings were selected for longevity and quality, as befits a house this beautiful.

MARBLE HALLWAYS

"The original hall tiles, in black & white marble, were retained and polished. Where grooves showed the passage of time, we worked with it to honour the stories the house holds.


"With fabulous bones, we knew, as soon as we saw the house, that it was something super special and just begging to be brought back to life..."
