Through the keyhole with Christopher Elliott Design Through the keyhole with Christopher Elliott Design

Christopher Elliott Design has a reputation for inspired and timeless interiors. This Melbourne-based design practice has an unmatched ability to harmonise materials and eras with a precise attention to detail – something we always admire.

Launched in 2005 from Christopher’s home studio in Melbourne, the practice has catered to a growing appetite for boutique designs across a wide range of projects -from residential to hospitality – and provides a concept-to-completion service.

Some of our favourite residential projects from Christopher Elliott Design include the Vogue apartment in South Yarra, which required the complete fit-out of a newly built residence purchased off the plan. The apartment is small and compact, but the interior design creates a wonderful sense of space and enhances the spectacular views of Melbourne. A careful selection of French Grey American Oak flooring throughout creates a seamless look and beautifully complements the mix of blue, yellow and green hues used in the furnishing.

The Richmond project is another favourite. It involved the refurbishment of a single-fronted Victorian house to highlight the client’s antique furniture while also making the home more livable in a modern context. Contemporary colours and the addition of grass cloth wallpaper bring life and texture to the design and classic modern furniture combines beautifully with the antique pieces.

Moving to a commercial environment, the Tom, Dick and Harry café in South Yarra saw Christopher initially offering a few hours of his time to advise ‘a friend of a friend’ with some interior insights for a significant renovation of a run-down cafe.  Hooked on a challenge, Christopher made some inspired choices and transformed the space from a dark commercial interior to a hospitality venue filled with natural light, warm materials and classic fitting.

“As someone truly passionate about good design and its ability to enhance our lives, I draw inspiration from a number of sources, from fashion, retrospective designs, and the natural landscape, to the clean, bold lines of modern architecture,” says Christopher.

This all translates into truly inspired designs.
