Elizabeth Flekser, co-founder of the boutique, Brisbane-based interior design practice Ivy and Piper, has a flair for design.

This art deco, Tudor-inspired home that she shares with her engineer husband, Grant, and two small boys, Levi and Noah, had remained untouched and was ripe for renovation. ‘With a growing family we wanted to extend the house and reconfigure the spaces to meet our family’s needs,’ says Elizabeth. Grant, a professional draftsman, was able to bring their vision to life and project-managed the entire planning and build, while Elizabeth took care of the interior design and decoration.
