We have worked with Jackie a couple of times in the past 4 years and we would do so again if we have another project. Jackie is a very nice person to work with and she's very calm. Even after delivery of the 19 th test pot of exterior paint colour she was still calm! Jackie listens to what we want and approaches the work so that the result suits us rather than a result that looks like someone else's tastes or the latest generic trends. That has meant that we are delighted with our outcome as it feels like 'us' and we're very comfortable with it. Jackie is professional, efficient and worked to a timeline that suited us.

I engaged Jackie to design an interior make-over for a house I recently purchased. The make-over was to include a complete interior paint, new light fittings, floor coverings and window furnishings. After an initial consultation, Jackie used her wealth of experience and creativity to come up with options that I was able to select from. During the design process Jackie sourced samples of all the colours and materials that made the final selection straight forward. The result was amazing. The colours, fixtures and fittings all blended together to transform the interior from an older, tired look into a beautifully modern, functional interior. A particular element of the make-over was a suggestion from Jackie to make a feature wall using a... read more→
Jackie solved our lounge problem to everyone's satisfaction. The challenge to please two generations of our family, yet get the right theme, keep the decorum, stay within the budget, get aesthetically pleasing lounge furniture and furnishings, and above all to make it all happen without us worrying about it, was our brief for Jackie. She took it on, with a smile, and fulfilled it without fuss, with great vision, full sincerity, approachability, involving us in decision making and delivering exactly what was expected. We would recommend Jackie's work to anyone. Lucky to have come across Jackie. Thank you
We are delighted with the amazing interior design of our recently renovated 1940’s home. Jackie was fantastic to work with, extremely professional and had lots of amazing ideas. Jackie listened to our thoughts and respected our own taste and suggestions. Her selections and ideas were perfect for us. Jackie has a great eye for detail, colour and texture. She sourced lots of stunning fabrics, wallpaper and furniture. This made the whole process easy, enjoyable and stress free. In fact we had so much fun it was sad when it came to an end. We have had lots of fabulous comments about the interior design of our home. We would highly recommend Jackie and look forward to working with her again.... read more→
In planning a major redecoration of our house concept planning involved modernising the ambience of our 15 year old home, colour changes ,painting the interior, new carpet, and drapes . Jackie’s consultations were invaluable. Her considerable experience involving decisions on colour choices, fabric suppliers and sourcing of materials eliminated considerable stress and certainly enhanced the finished appearances. We found Jackie to be professional, kept appointments and was very helpful in making recommendations. She has good contacts in the specialised interior design industry. We are delighted with the finished result and have no hesitation in recommending Jackie.
It was a delight to have Jackie work on our home. She was involved in completely redecorating our house, both the original structure and the new renovation. We felt Jackie understood our requirements and developed a new design and colour scheme to suit our family lifestyle. We were impressed with the stunning fabrics and wallpapers she sourced, which fit perfectly with the paint & carpet colours she recommended. The final product is amazing - warm and welcoming, tasteful and very much reflective of our personal taste. Watching our house come together was a very rewarding experience and we couldn't be more pleased. Jackie made everything so easy and we wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.
... I know that your future clients will be very lucky to have your consideration and your attention to detail and your vision to help them with their houses.
Having moved into our new house, we were really keen to put our mark on it. We had ideas of what we liked and how it should feel but little idea in how to bring it to life. This is where Jackie came in! After working with Jackie for over three years, we are now living in the home that we visualised when we first met her and discussed what we were trying to achieve. Jackie's great to work with. Always professional. She listens, provides ideas, has the patience and creativity to offer alternatives when required while carefully ensuring all projects reflect the original discussion.
We were looking for an Interior Designer and Jackie was recommended to us via a friend. Jackie listened to what we wanted and delivered designs beyond our expectations. Throughout our renovation Jackie’s eye for detail has helped us create a home that is beautiful, but also very livable. Jackie was happy to recommend contractors which we appreciated, she also helped manage our contractors while we were out of the country, this meant we could keep to our deadlines while not worrying about the quality of work. We’d not hesitate recommending Jackie, she was a pleasure to work with and helped us create something really special - thanks Jackie :
Jackie is amazing! She helped us with the interior design of the extension and renovation of our home and project-managed it for us when we were overseas for a period. Jackie got an immediate sense of our preferred tastes and style and came up with ideas we loved. She is exceptionally well-organised and professional and we found her approachable and wonderfully easy to work with. She was able to advise on all aspects of our home from designing the bathroom and kitchen to soft furnishing and colour choices for the interior and exterior of the house. We are thrilled with the final result she has helped us achieve. Jo & Adam Marcroft, St Heliers, Auckland
We were referred to Jackie, and from our first meeting we knew she was going to be wonderful to work with to assist us with our renovation project of our 1960's Glendowie property. She listened and understood our needs and likes, and worked with us to create exactly what we dreamed of creating in our family home! From the outset Jackie was involved with the floorplan design, able to provide input into door placement, room and deck sizes, as well as measuring furniture before we moved out and everything went into storage. We then addressed the colour scheme, fabrics and textures, choosing external and internal paint colours, tiles for ensuite, family bathroom and guest toilet, as well as wallpapers and... read more→
We recently built our own home and were looking for professional, friendly & inspirational advice for a number of projects throughout the house. We received all this from Jackie. She immediately understood our requirements and provided us with excellent ideas and ultimately high quality products. We are thrilled with the outcome and value her fabulous contribution to our home. She comes highly recommended.
I have worked with Jackie during the redecoration of my house during 2005 and previously in 2003. As well as being in touch with contemporary style, I have found Jackie’s knowledge of English country houses and French country style particularly valuable for my home. Jackie is very efficient and reliable. She is very pleasant to work with as she adapts to a clients ideas rather than imposing any preconceived ideas on decoration. She is very imaginative and always has helpful and practical suggestions as to how an idea may work. She has excellent contacts with experienced tradespeople who execute ideas and produce furnishings and curtains of a very high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending her work .
We would be more than happy to work with Jackie again on any future projects. Jackie is a designer who listens. With Jackie’s help we have created rooms that are uniquely us in ways that we could never have imagined ourselves. Her knowledge of what the industry has to offer and of what may or may not work for us has saved us time, money and many a false start. Working with Jackie – what a pleasure.
