Decorating your home whether it’s a new build, your first family home or the home you’ve lived in for many years can be an overwhelming and daunting task. For some people just thinking about furnishing their home is so exhausting it’s easier to live with the existing furniture you hate than it is to face the Supa Centa on a weekend to update your home.
So many of my clients share the same initial decorating woes.
- Time poor young professionals who appreciate a beautifully decorated home but just don’t have the time to dedicate to planning your new home.
- Young families dragging the kids all over looking at homewares and furniture stores on the weekends.
- Home reno show junkies who spend evenings scrolling through Pinterest pinning your dream home while sitting on your tatty old sofa your now husband had in his bachelor pad before you met.
- First Home Buyers who have moved from a two bedroom rental into your first family home in the burbs and suddenly have so many extra rooms to furnish you just don’t know where to start.
- Or you might be planning your new home renovation/build with military like precision but you’re second guessing some of the decisions you’ve made for fixtures + finishes and would like a professional to run their eye over your ideas.
Need to pick colours for inside and/or outside? We’ll meet and discuss your colour needs and then I send you a paint schedule to hand straight to your painter. For new builders as well as renovations.

One-on-one specialised advice specific to you and your home’s needs. You’ll receive access to professional know-how and trades as well as tapping into a huge furniture supplier base that work specifically with interior decorators and designers only. I’m there to hold your hand throughout the process and help you make decisions that will result in a beautiful home you’re proud to live in.
You will also receive a guide on where furniture should be placed so you can action the new changes yourself in your own time. Along the way you might even find you’re enjoying the process and want to take the bull by the horns and run the renovation yourself (win!) so you can engage my services as much or as little as you like. After all you have to live in the space (not me!) so I want you to really love the end result.
If you’re just starting the renovation or building process and just require a helping hand or sounding board for any fixtures and fittings decisions I also offer design consultations to run through the house plans with you. I can also assist with interior and exterior paint selections too. The document I provide you with after our meeting can be sent straight to your trades to follow so minimal back and forth between you and the builder/painter/electrician etc.
