Collaborating with the intuitive talent at Milieu Creative, the GH Commercial design team were delighted to complement their creative vision with an assortment of custom flooring solutions.

Restoring A Classic Landmark
Experienced architecture and interior collective, Milieu Creative, were tasked with the full restoration of The Royal Hotel, a historic establishment in the heart of Perth. Built in 1882 amidst the heady days of the Western Australian gold rush, the archetypal Victorian building was a gracious addition to a burgeoning city.

Fast forward nearly 140 years to a refurbishment brief merging heritage pub provenance with twenty-first century hospitality spaces. Mindful of respecting the colourful corner pub history, retained features, such as the original wrought iron balustrading, wrap-around verandah, exposed ceiling beams and arched fenestration, needed to seamlessly converge with a contemporary aesthetic.

Custom Carpet Design
GH Commercial’s specialist design team looked to emphasise the individual style and character particular to specific rooms of the hotel, integrating several custom Designer Jet® sheet patterns in distinct hues to define and delineate each area.

Inspired by a rich prospecting past, the Trilliards Room features a striking navy and gold pattern, while a subtle grey and granite design in The Lounge offers a discreet counterpoint to key artworks and old-world furnishings. Exposed brick and timber beams in the Private Dining room background a dramatic space enhanced by a riotous rust and cream design, contrasting with fine dining space, Fleur, which features Feltex Cable Bay in 770 Haven, a simple cut pile twist. Finally, two tones of repeat patterned pink work companionably in a retro styled Karaoke Room.

Designer Jet® Magic
The first in the Southern Hemisphere, Designer Jet® is a world class technology at the forefront of custom carpet creation. Using precision engineering to inject dye into the pile, Designer Jet® works by taking any striking pattern, drawing or image to create a bespoke carpet unique for your project. With the freedom to select your surface texture, product size and backing type, Designer Jet® facilitates genuine design flexibility.
