Right royal oak

It's not often that I am excited by a supplier's website. Lots of close-ups of tile or timber but no juicy photos. That is until I stumbled across Royal Oak Floors by Harper & Sandilands. Swoon! Not only a stunning product but a gallery of work that leaves you breathless. Is there anything more beautiful than natural finishes like oak masterly installed? Harper & Sandilands, an Australian company determined to lead their niche market have worked with the best of the best Australian designers and architects. Think Carr Design,  Ellenberg Fraser, Atticus & Milo, BARstudio, B.E Architecture, Hecker Phelan & Guthrie, Leeton Pointon Architects and Woods Bagot to name a few. Head to the website to see more projects. I'm still lusting after a room just like these.

When I first opened this post I could only see the top of the first photo and I thought it was upside down and that I was looking at the floor. Wrong! I suppose we get so used to using certain materials in one particular way, but this is an eye opener. Flooring on the walls and ceiling. Cool! Great ideas.

Hey, I'm not on that list!!! No, I haven't worked with these guys, just kidding.

Love these rooms and I must say, I'm definitely warming to oak these days. It's so much softer than all that depressing wenge we've been enduring for years.

I've never been a fan of wood paneling, but this is beyond nothing compared to wood paneling! They make these rooms look so beautiful and cozy. Who would have thought that wood flooring would look beautiful on the walls and also on the ceiling! It's awesome!

Those rooms are AMAZING. I decided today that I am going to lay timber floors in my living room extension - this has confirmed it for me! Also, how comfy do those modular lounges look in the first image?

Wow some gorgeous images, I'll definitely be looking into their timber products! I recently used Classique Floorboards in Perth to do some stunning Limewashed wide European Oak floorboards in a new home I worked on in Trigg & they are just STUNNING! especially with white walls.... my favourite combo at the moment. great find!!

The first picture is upside down, in case you hadn't noticed.

Just kidding, don't you hate skimmers, I actually love the oak on the ceiling, but it would droop with time don't you think? Also, I love the two spirals.

I realize this is a post about oak, but it is the styling I adore! Love the art.

Holy sh*t. Yes please, I'll take my floors on the walls and ceilings too IF THEY'LL LOOK LIKE THIS!!!!!

We have used this company (Harper & Sandilands) on two projects so far and they have been fantastic to deal with. Now we just send our clients to them with our recommended finish and they get looked after. The best thing is that there are no "wrong" colours in their range we can work with all of them. Both jobs have had the "million dollar" look but the prices have been very good. Happy clients.
