The Block 2019: Interior Designers Share Their Thoughts on the Ensuite Reveals

By Elizabeth Clarke

Perhaps the most private room of the house, the perfect en suite might be small, but should pack a big style statement and be highly functional.

“The en suite is a small bathing zone, so the focus should be on maximising practical storage solutions and functionality,” says designer Sarah Elshaug from Maitland Street Interiors. “It’s about finding balance between a ‘retreat’ vibe with the practicalities of day-to-day living.”

Slice of Heaven

By Lucy Feagins

Chyka and Bruce Keebaugh weren’t looking for a holiday home, when they stumbled across this Mornington Peninsula property online one evening. “I saw it on Instagram … we went to see the house on the Monday, and bought it the following Saturday,” Chyka Keebaugh says. The stunning home wasn’t always this sleek, though. As Keebaugh explains, “before being renovated by the previous owner, it was originally purple and yellow!” Since moving in, the couple have worked together to redecorate and make the place their own.

When most of us scroll through Instagram on any given evening, we might like a picture of a friend’s holiday, click through to buy a pair of shoes, or fall into the depths of some distant cousin’s wedding photos. For media personality and The Big Group co-founder Chyka Keebaugh, Instagram daydreaming lead to the purchase of a stunning holiday home!

Architect & Interior Designer Collab On ‘Curved’ House

By Amy Collins Walker

Retaining the existing front curved section of the home, this inner-Melbourne family house underwent a full renovation and extension recently courtesy of a wonderfully synergistic collaboration between an architect and interior designer.

“Our clients were captivated by this unique home when they were looking to move closer to family – with a curved ceiling line and complementary curved wall of floor to ceiling glass it was unlike anything they imagined they would fall in love with! But those curves had so much potential and with clever space planning and the addition of a second storey they were able to realise their dream of creating a unique light-filled, contemporary and elegant four-bedroom family home,” says the home’s interior designer Sarah Elshaug of Maitland Street Interiors who worked on the project alongside architect Vicky Cutler of V Three Architecture.

Glen Iris Project / Maitland Street Interiors

By Lucy Glad Wright

We’re always excited to learn about period home makeovers. It intrigues us how designers would transform an old home into a stylish modern abode whilst keeping some of its architectural history intact. Aside from preserving some original details, how do you turn a near century old Californian Bungalow into a present day Scandinavian stunner? Take a look at the Glen Iris Project by Sarah Elshaug of Maitland Street Interiors.

Scandinavian Design Art Deco Home Featuring Silhouette Pendant Lights

By Ross Gardam

Scandinavian design, simplicity and functionality were key points of reference when Sarah Elshaug of Maitland Street Interiors tackled the renovation of this 1930’s California Bungalow in Glen Iris. The result is an elegant, refined interior treatment for a busy family of five, designed to effortlessly evolve over the years as the children grow into young adults.

How To Get Your Home Ready For Summer in Five Simple Steps

By Elizabeth Clarke

Along with the warmth of dappled sunlight, balmy days and toasty nights, now is the time to lighten and brighten your home for the sunny months ahead.

After hibernating at home all winter, now is the perfect time to declutter and purge, says creative director Sarah Elshaug from Maitland Street Interiors.

“Less is definitely more in summer, so pack away all those extra winter comfort items. It provides a clean canvas that allows you to start styling again from a fresh summery perspective.”

The Tips And Tricks Stylists Always Steal From Luxury Hotels

By Elizabeth Clarke

Premium window treatments and high-thread-count sheets can have a life outside of a luxury hotel. For stylists, the ultimate hotel experience can serve as a rich source of inspiration. “Life is busy and clients crave a home that creates a sanctuary,” says Sarah Elshaug from Maitland Street Interiors. “A beautiful hotel room can evoke a feeling and an experience that translates well into a home environment.”

The Verdict : Lello Pasta Bar

By Stephen Russell

There’s a well-worn Italian proverb that says, ‘Amici e vini sono meglio vecchie’, which basically translates as, ‘Friends, like wine, are best when aged’.

The same could be said for Lello Pasta Bar. Tucked on the corner of Flinders Lane and Russell St, the Italian favourite formerly known as Yak Italian Kitchen & Bar has grown older gracefully (much like adored Italian film star Monica Belluci)...

Lello is full-blown stylish dining. Dramatic portraits and diffused lighting punctuate blue-grey panelled walls. Grey fabric banquette seating attends pale wooden tables... 

Paired with perky service, this big-windowed corner spot makes for a fun and flavoursome night out with besties in a setting we’re sure Bellucci would approve of.

Natural inspiration : The bathroom trends you'll be seeing everywhere

By Elizabeth Clarke

It may be your most useful room, but thanks to the popular wellness movement, the bathroom is also considered a haven...

Achieving the right combination of lighting makes all the difference to your bathroom’s functionality. “Selecting vanity lights for the best light possible is essential,” says Sarah Elshaug of Maitland Street Interiors. “Be sure to balance their practicality with flair, like a contemporary wall mounted light on either side of the mirror.”
