Accent has completed the manufacturing and installation products in 5 episodes (Blackburn, Collingwood, Box Hill, Prahran and Doncaster) of the first series of Deadline Design with Shaynna Blaze being shown on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel. Being involved right from the design stage in consultation with Shaynna on each of the projects has given Accent an insight into the “behind the scenes” operations and thought processes of Australia’s premier interior designer. It was an absolute delight to work with the entire cast and crew of this series, and hope to do further work with Beyond Productions and Shaynna in the near future.
Read below for a little further information of one of the episodes, “Collingwood”.
Recently our windows and doors featured in a stunning renovation by Shaynna Blaze within Melbourne’s iconic MacRobertson lolly factory building in Collingwood.
The building was already rich with natural materials – think timber, brick and concrete – and provided the perfect environment for our innovative and modern aluminium doors and windows.
Black frames always provide an eye-catching element and in this project, became more than a functional essential but a true design statement that ties all the components together.
Shaynna was inspired by the original steel windows at the front of the home, choosing one of our windows in the side wall to align seamlessly with the front window then linking to the new bifold doors.
As many of our projects result in increasing connectivity of indoors and outdoors, we are thrilled to see this outcome with Shaynna’s project.
Shaynna mentions also that our black-framed windows were inspired by one of the greats, Piet Mondri, as the windows complement the modernism of the interior in a dramatic, artistic rendering of function meeting design. At Accent Windows, we pride ourselves on how configurations represent and reflect changes in taste and style, and we love staying on top of current – and future – trends.
