Preston Studios has worked extensively with the designers at the INSPIRATIONS SHOWROOM, which until earlier this year was located on US 1 in Melbourne, Florida.  These doors illustrate a “transitional” approach to design – with contemporary lines using traditional materials.  Wood fixture by Melbourne Architectural Millworks.

Preston Studios has worked extensively with Liz Harris of Designers West to create a number of highly specialized and unique installations for homes in Central Florida.  One on Lansing Island in Satellite Beach includes a large oval ceiling some 18 feet by 12 feet in size. In this same residence can be seen these library doors, also themed to “French Empire” in style.

Library doors on Lansing Island

Preston Studios has worked extensively with various interior designers over time – clients often come back for additional work over time as well.  This patron moved the two door panels from their ocean front condo into their Lansing Island residence years later – then commissioned Preston Studios to create a matching transom to complete the ensemble.

Preston Studios enjoys creating “period looks.”  In this case the reference was to an “English style” of traditional beveled glass.  Privacy was not so much an issue for this library since it was down a hallway – so design and decorative elegance were of greater importance.

Preston Studios worked with interior designer Suzanna Lawler (Boney) to rework earlier Preston Studios art glass installations done previously in this residence on Lansing Island.  Both the kitchen cabinet doors had to be replaced as well as the library door panels to complete new design initiatives.  Here the “faux wrought iron” technique is married to beveled glass to create a classic look.
