French inspired doors & antique paint effects
Christophe Living are the only specialists that design and make classical doors for rooms and the main entrance. Our door designs are inspired by the antique doors of the grand homes in Italy and France, and we use a large variety of mouldings and panelling options as well as traditional French joinery techniques for an authentic traditional look. We can also apply mouldings and ornaments to existing flat internal doors, giving them a French look without the need for entirely new doors.
Jean-Christophe will design your door especially for your home. He will create unique drawings that include all the measurements and specifications. In consultation with Jean-Christophe you can decide on the level of mouldings and ornamentation you want. Samples will be made by our in-house artisans to show you different finishes and special paint effects. We can recreate any finishes you like in any colour, tone, texture or patina. The door is then constructed and finished in our Sydney workshop before our qualified installers deliver and install the door.
French inspired cloakroom
In this beautiful French inspired cloakroom, we designed the doors to be as elegant as possible.
Each door is high and slender with symmetrical panelling and beautiful ornaments. A pelmet with curved mouldings and rectangular ornament runs along the top of the doors to create structure and formality and a crowning effect to the piece. It is finished in antique white with a light antique wash with grey trim that has a rub-through effect brushed with champagne gold gilding. This is a truly special cloakroom.
Renovate an existing door
If you have an existing kitchen, wardrobe or cupboard we can renovate it by adding new doors or renovating existing doors by refinishing them, adding mouldings and ornamentation. This can completely transform the look of a room and bring an old piece back to life.
The front door of a house is one of the first design elements one sees. A door with balanced proportions, the right mouldings and panels and elegant classical elements will make the entry a feature that enhances the look and value of your home.
