Interior Design Consultation
From one room to a full house renovation, an Interior Design Consultation can be just what you need to get the ball rolling. Maybe you just need a little inspiration to get things started, or you could be looking for full management of your project. Either way, I am happy to meet with you and discuss your renovation plans.
At our initial meeting we’ll talk through the details of your project and consider your budget, style, taste and lifestyle. From there we can work together to create the home of your dreams. The couple of hours we spend together in this initial Interior Design Consultation will give a really good insight into the scope of your project. From there it may be that you would like me to assist with plans for the layout of your room/s or to begin sourcing the products we’ll need to achieve the finished look we are after. I can help you to make choices that will suit best your requirements… read more

In the past, I have suggested changes to the design and location of windows, walls and doorways to allow for the best room layout possible. Sometimes these details can be missed when looking at a plan full of empty rooms… read more

Window Treatments, Curtains & Fabric Selection
With a vast array of fabrics available, making a decision about curtains (not to mention window treatment style and type) can be overwhelming. Once we have discussed your requirements and budget, I will bring a selection of fabrics and samples to your place for you to look at in situ. This is really the only way to get a true feel for how options will look in your room…
