'I like to hear my clients' stories. 

These become the building blocks of my design process and through their translation I create spaces that become the home in which your stories can continue - the way you have told me you want them to.'

A wonderful project.


Normanby House exemplifies a simple, warm update on a cold and tired townhouse featuring quality product, considered lighting and thoughtful colour.

The project included new furniture to the entire home, a refresh to the kitchen and bathroom, a complete electrical and lighting re-wire, and new doors, handleware, paint, carpet and window furnishings throughout.



Warm timber elements in the main bedroom mix with cool tones, soft edges and a casual yet sophisticated mix of textures to offer this busy professional a calm, restorative harbour.

Gentle hues in new paint and carpet together with lovingly handcrafted furniture make a comfortable and appealing place to work from home.

'I enjoy showing my clients how to plan interiors like this one by using a simple process.  Enduring, quality pieces from local suppliers like Tide Design (featured in the study and dining room of Normanby House) are an important part of this strategy.  So is knowing how to allocate funds using a budget - a vital part of my design process.'

Personal and functional things have an important place in this home - a spot for the radio near the dining table; a pull down shower seat with warm timber tones in an accessible bathroom.



An edited handful of high quality items provide daily pleasure and satisfaction. for a personal touch, dining chairs custom upholstered in the client's favourite colour.

'The things you touch, see and use the most in the course of a typical day are the things I encourage my clients to invest in. These are the things which will offer you the greatest joy in your daily life, after all.'

The existing kitchen was kept and refreshed - cupboards were retained and coupled with new bench tops, a new tiled splashback, updated appliances and handleware.


Striking paintings by artist Saffron Newey - a personal friend of the client - were framed in white for impact and used in the entrance and study above, as well as in the main bedroom and living room.  

'These pieces add a contemplative feel to the spaces in which they are used and carry an important personal connection for my client, which made them important to me.'
