Welcome to the Christmas edition of the John Croft Design eNews!
In this edition, we present two projects featured in both Queensland Homes Summer Edition and Mercedes Benz Gold Coast Magazine. We also feature another project we have recently completed where we had the opportunity to custom design an apartment of furniture using our client’s own timber from his farming property.
We celebrate the Christmas season with a delectable cookie recipe and images of Christmas decorating ideas to welcome the festive season.
We also welcome Carmen and Marilyn back from their recent overseas holidays and celebrate the JCD puppies 2nd birthday.
It is also worthy to note John Croft Design will be closed for Christmas from Friday 23rd of December and return on Monday 16th of January 2017.
Happy Holidays! From all at John Croft Design.
JOHN CROFT DESIGN FEATURED IN THE LATEST EDITION OF QUEENSLAND HOMES MAGAZINE
Interior Designer Lloyd Hodgkinson has had an interior designer’s dream with his Cairns project. Working closely with his clients, Lloyd was responsible for all building design and selections through to selections of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings and accessories. Having this level of input in all stages of a project really allows us to do what we love, creating a completed interior where every detail has been considered so our clients can truly enjoy living in their home.
JOHN CROFT DESIGN FEATURED IN MERCEDES BENZ GOLD COAST MAGAZINE
John Croft Design has been featured in the quarterly issue of the Mercedes Benz Gold Coast Magazine. The article showcases one of our stunning existing projects at West Lake.
John Croft Design was given a brief relatively void of restrictions, with the homeowners putting their faith in the vision that the design team had conjured up. Dramatic, sophisticated and controlled, the home is bursting with bright colour, glossy finishes and luxurious textures, referencing the owners’ Indian heritage.
COUNTRY TO CABINETS
John and Nyria recently had the pleasure of working on a particularly unique project with one of our existing clients and the skilful craftsmen at Finer Finishers Furniture Makers. It involved furnishing an inner city apartment with a very personal set of furniture.
John had the opportunity to custom design all of the furniture throughout the apartment, with the twist of using our client’s own timber from his cattle property.
It has been incredible to see the manufacturing and design process from start to finish – starting with a pile of unfinished timber in the factory, through to the beautifully finished result.
IN HONOUR OF JIM WADDINGTON
It is with great sadness that the JCD team attended the funeral for Jim Waddington on the 26th October.
Jim had been a prominent figure in the Interior Design industry for many long decades. It was Jim who actually gave John his first job in the industry before the formation of John Croft Design. Jim’s wonderful sense of optimism and kindness will be celebrated for many years to come.
We will miss him dearly.
Updated cushions can breath fresh air into wicker furniture. Kylie installed these green and purple examples for one of our clients with super stunning results just in time for a summer spent outside.
Inner city living is often a vibrant affair, especially with colours and wallpaper that pop. Included is a snap shot from an installation that John and Nyria worked on for an appartment in the city, such fantastic patterns and highlights.
JOSEPH & INGRID’S 2ND BIRTHDAY
We can’t believe our designer dogs are almost two! Joseph & Ingrid will celebrate their second birthday on the 10th of December… well, at least the JCD staff will be!
Any excuse for cake around here!
DECORATING YOUR HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
