We have enjoyed working on this whole house concept in East Perth. This grape vine theme really brings a taste of the Mediterranean to this home, with balustrading, gates, outdoor wall art and interior handrails carrying this theme.
Blue wrens adorn panels throughout, bringing colour and life to the work.
Best of all, this artwork has functional purpose, with balustrades for safety, automated sensor gates for security, handrail for comfort when moving between the floors, and art, in one case to provide reinforcement to a crack in the aging stonework.
Art Deco is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that appeared in France pre-World War 1 and is still popular today.
It combines modernist styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials, representing luxury, glamour, exuberance and progress (def. Wikipedia).
To create the look and feel of this era for your home, here are some pointers:
Art deco works very well with older federation-style homes, renovated to create eye-catching features that capture the magic of a bygone era, with a focus on using quality materials that last. It is also not subject to design trends or fa...
As most of us now see more electronic than physical post, the humble letterbox is still seen as a "pivotal part of a home". This description came from a client, who after more than 12 months of building her dream home, didn't quite feel it was 'home' until the letterbox was installed with the shiny street number 24 on the front face.
We have also had clients who wanted more than a simple brick box, and turned to Jalmer for sculptural letterboxes that make a statement as an art feature for the front yard.
The photo gallery above demonstrates the range of letterboxes that we have concepted for ou...

Some great memories at the Home Show this year. We had a fantastic stand location, right near the Colour Your World stage, so we got to hear about all things energy efficient, latest in building technology and products, as well as Ronnie and Georgia from season 13 of The Block.
Thanks to everyone who visited our stand and talked to us about your upcoming building or renovation plans or just to enjoy the artworks on display. Many people bought artwork for themselves or as gifts for special people - one piece was off to the US and another to Germany!
A new client came in over the 2017 Armadale HIlls Open Studio Art Trail to commission the piece shown for someone special in her life as a Christmas gift.
After selecting the eucalyptus decoration for a landscape panel, her and her husband were pleased to get this underway, as this person had passed away doing what he loved best - gardening.
On visiting the family member a few weeks later, they were amazed to see some Wayne Jeffery pieces in the same style on the kitchen table. It turned out this person loved these pieces and had purchased them a few years prior.
The great news is that you can have something unique for your home, no matter where you are located in Australia or overseas.
This photo was taken of a Jalmer artistic portico door set that has been installed to a home in Canberra, ACT with the client comment "They're just what I had envisioned - the perfect finishing touch".
We worked with the owner to agree on design, including the need for the design to keep in her new puppy! It also needed to incorporate flyscreening, include her house number and customer-specified door furniture (which we hadn't used before).
