With a modern twist, Doherty Design Studio brings back the majesty and grandeur of the art deco era with this elegant Elwood transformation. The success of this ambitious design refresh is evident in Doherty Design Studio engagement to transform an old manor in Elwood into a vibrant oasis for a family of five. The Art Deco essence of this grand home is felt throughout, bringing timelessness and originality that can only be achieved with considered design choices. This elegant project features contemporary kitchen lighting , lead light windows and doors, decorative ceiling details as well as the exterior which nods tribute to the era of the objects within. Working alongside its charms and idiosyncrasies, Doherty Design Studio avoided clashing frustrations by achieving a ‘pared back yet glamorous feel’ which proved to be key in succeeding this balancing act. The home has a contemporary feel with a reverence towards its Art Deco roots.
The bottle green sofa is reflective to the custom made gold and emerald cabinetry in the second living area. Paired with our Limited Edition Gold Ora Desk Lamp, which makes an appearance here, albeit a contemporary nod to grander times. The modern essence of the home is then established in the kitchen. Where herringbone tiled floor and marble splash back and bench sits centre stage, surrounded by minimalistic details with the edition of our Flare Wall Lights, creating a muted backlight to the kitchen island. Balance is well achieved by Doherty Design Studio, with this Elwood residence as a stellar example that working with pre-existing details is key to a remarkable renovation.
