About Me

If you’re looking for a designer who cares about you and creating your ideal home – not theirs, then you have found me! 

Not only will I bring together the perfect design for you, I'll hold your hand through the entire project and manage it from start to the beautiful finish. Whether you have just received your plans from the Architect, picked up the keys to your new home or you’re ready for a change but have no idea where to start. 

I listen to my clients and help them bring their ideas to life. I'm great at gentle persuasion to push you out of your comfort zone, and it's those little pushes that make for the best interiors. My goal is to create a home that is a direct reflection of you, your family and the way you want to live. But it's no fun unless we take a little bit of a risk.

Before I started my business in 2003 I had begun renovating my home in Sans Souci in Sydney and just fell in love with the whole process. So much so I was re-arranging my friends lounge rooms when I was visiting for a cuppa, without even really thinking. Creating little vignettes, changing things around and generally making a nuisance of myself. However, they all loved it and kept encouraging me to do more and more. Before I knew it I was studying at the School of Colour and Design and leaped head first into starting my own business. My daughter was just 8 months old, and the dining table was covered in paint colour chips and anything I could get my hands on to get started. I could hardly sleep I was so excited about what the future held and to be doing something I loved so much!! 

Fast forward 16 years, 3 kids, 1 divorce and a slight Pug obsession and I’m loving what I do even more today than ever! Each new job brings exciting challenges and sparks new ideas and imagination. It’s a constant learning process too as I keep up to date with trends and suppliers and all the gorgeous things that go into my interiors. 

Please give me a call, I'm here for you, and always with a smile, enthusiasm and genuine love for your project. I'll save you time, money and heartbreak. In return, you will have the beautiful home you've always dreamt of. I guarantee it! And I can’t wait to meet you.
