It’s lovely to meet you! I am delighted that, in your search for an interior designer, you are considering my talents for your home which is, of course, one of the biggest investments you will ever make in your lifetime. In a nutshell, my designs are like snowflakes with no two ever being the same. Each of my bespoke projects speaks to your personal aesthetic, goals for use, lifestyle and preferred colour palette.
Nothing is ever forced upon my clients from budget to concept, to timeline. You will never be handed a completed room design with everything selected according to my opinions and preferences for your space. That’s just not how I work! Rather, from start to finish my room designs are a fluid, organic, process with client input every step of the way. This is indeed a unique approach to interior design but with clients returning year after year to craft areas in their beloved homes – tells me I am doing something very right.
With my decades of experience delivering bespoke interior design projects in Auckland, as a customer, you can leverage my relationships with retailers and contractors to secure the best prices for materials and services. Over time, I have hand-picked professionals in construction and manufacturing to work their magic in your home. On your own, selections for furniture, fabrics, flooring and more can seem limited and over-priced in Auckland. I invite you to use my savvy to open up a whole new world of choices you would not otherwise have at your fingertips.
So much of what makes me a unique and recognized interior designer in the region comes from my experience honing my skills to make my processes streamlined, efficient and always on point.
Sure, there may be hundreds of Interior Designers in New Zealand but there is one thing that sets me apart. In a word – knowledge. I have worked many different facets of the industry, in the Kitchen and Bathroom Industry, Managed a kitchen cabinetry company, been an Account Manager for Carters in the Furniture and Joinery sector, Managed the GP&J Baker Showroom on the Kings Road, London. This grounding means I learned about design in the trenches. Plus, my background in engineering means that I have a talent for making the most out of every space.
A good Interior Designer is not just about developing the concept. I can speak with confidence and expertise to plumbers, architects, builders and many other industry professionals. I also thrive on finding clever solutions for unique projects or challenging spaces.
Interior Design is in my blood as my mother founded this company almost forty years and I am so proud to build upon what she created every day – making houses into homes. Whether you want to build from the bottom up, renovate a sprawling old villa or put a bit of polish on a room you are tired of, just give me a call! No job is too big or small!
