Recently two of the QAQ staff visited the beautiful Henley display homes of Woodlea Estate in Rockbank, VIC. There are many decorative screen installations at the various display homes open to view there, including these gorgeous installations of QAQ's 'Valletta' design in compressed hardwood. This series of installations feature decorative screens used primarily for dividing open spaces, adding a beautiful architectural element to the interior design of the home and providing a sense of intimacy to the spaces they enclose.
A decorative screen partitions the foyer from the main lounge at the entrance of this home. This is a 2400 x 1200 mm standard size screen, one of the larger sizes manufactured by QAQ.
The view from the foyer to the lounge is also partly enclosed by another 'Valetta' in the same dark, charcoal-stained 'Woodsman' grain. Compressed hardwood screens are also available in a Jarrah stain or can be purchased raw.
A third screen partly encloses an open plan office.
Screen installation can be as easy as bolting stylish clamps to the surrounding wall and ceiling.

Kaleidoscopic, geometric, traditional stain glass stars, sharp prisms, and center circles define the decorative screen aptly named 'Christchurch' by QAQ. This intricate design would suit many styles of outdoor and indoor living spaces, modern or traditional, but for the sake of indulging in an architectural style that 'Christchurch' would most perfectly suit, there is no better choice than neo-gothic architecture.
One of the few photographs I have to show you of 'Christchurch' installed is from one of our stockists, Paps Vertical Gardens, in Caulfield, Victoria. This is their lovely garden center patio, where 'Christchurch' compressed hardwood screens are placed on a vertical garden wall. This is a fantastic use of minimal space that would suit urban dwellers or those with small apartment balconies. The screens could also be painted to further brighten up a shady patio area.
QAQ decorative screens can be custom cut to suit any sized window--including one of the most iconic gothic architectural elements, the arched, or lancet, window frame. Here are just a few stunning example of lancet windows I found:
A decorative screen like 'Christchurch' would work well in an arched window cavity for an outdoor living area, or for an indoor wall feature in which you might want semi-privacy and free air flow. Screens can also be made in a variety of strong metals and installed on the outside of windows as an added security measure.
The premiere feature of a truly grand, neo-gothic structure is vaulted, cathedral ceilings. Many of the homes pictured here are from converted chapels and small cathedrals.
I hope you have enjoyed this brief foray into gothic architecture in modern interiors. To see much more in this style and to see the latest installation pics of 'Christchurch' as we they come in, follow our decorative screen Pinterest board features, including one just for 'Christchurch'.
