Malvern Masterpiece by Mark Kirszner of Arthausworld and Kate Walker of National Tiles

Kate Walker in conjunction with designer Mark Kirszner from Arthausworld supplied tiles to two beautifully finished projects in Malvern. The first at 18 Ethel Street, Malvern, and the second at 78 Elizabeth Street, Malvern. Kate and Mark worked closely together on the project to ensure the right look was achieved, and the materials were delivered on time and under budget. Kate and Mark chose a selection of both porcelain and natural stone to complete the project. Stunning pale full-bodied natural porcelain was selected for the bathrooms, floor to ceiling. And for the courtyards, sawn bluestone in a 600x300x10mm format. Mark was thrilled with the end result of his design, and the photos below are testament to that.

The level of professional service and industry knowledge ensured that decision making was easy and indeed enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend art∙hausworld to architects and designers and indeed anyone looking for that ideal product.” – Gerry Mussett “Mark was quick to understand how we wished to live and what our requirements were. With much flair he translated these into a comfortable and bright environment, a house we enjoy getting up in, spending time in and coming home to. His eye for detail, his discerning taste and his dedication to quality have ensured us a fine and attractive home and his personal service made the process of building and choosing a very pleasant one.” – Danielle Charak “We really did not want to build. The stress and hassle was not for us. We were looking for a finished product, but we couldn’t find the quality. Intuitively we gave Mark a brief. He made it look easy; nothing was too much trouble. We changed our minds many times, but a solution was always available. ‘Not a problem’ became the standard phrase. Mark took away the trouble and stress and now we have a beautiful, tasteful, liveable and quality home. And it doesn’t stop there. The after sale service began immediately, so not only have we acquired a home, we have acquired a friend” – Sarah & Joseph Franck

KWD has grown from a team of two in 2013 to a dynamic group of ten professionals who all contribute to the successful consultancy we have created. Growing up in a family with a mother as an Interior Designer and a father as a successful Ceramic Tile Merchant, it's no wonder I entered the world of design. At Kate Walker Design (KWD), our primary focus is to specify, source and supply stone, tiles and all other hard finishes into projects across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula, but also interstate and internationally. We embrace a consultative approach and develop lasting relationships with each and every client. It’s what the KWD team knows and loves. “Design is not a thing we do. It’s our way of life.” Kate Walker
