Making a house a home is my absolute passion........
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love of design and beautiful things. When I say “beautiful things” I don’t necessarily mean “expensive” either. I find I have a knack for being able to create a wonderful home palette by using a selection of items ranging from pre-existing furniture & decor that you may own, that we up-cycle or re-invent in some clever way, perhaps I style them in a different way to what you are used to, or we re-upholster or re-paint a much loved piece of your existing furniture. I also love to incorporate re-cycled items, vintage finds, as well as mainstream budget decor items.......because who doesn't love a good deal? Then I cleverly mix these with more expensive decor and home ranges.
For me, detail is everything, from the smallest item such as a beautiful door knob, or a soft and luxurious scatter cushion, to an interesting light fitting, or well organised storage, to unique furniture finds, it's all in the detail and how you execute it. A home is created through layers of texture. Texture is not just something you feel, it is something that you see the moment you walk into a space.........it's a combination of many layers...........it's in the floors, the walls, the counter tops, the exposed ceiling beams, a rustic mirror, a chunky knit blanket, a comfy couch or a beautiful vessel of wild grasses...............it's everywhere without you even realising it!
I believe that incorporating all these elements, combined with a well thought out colour palette, are the key to beautiful design.
My strengths lie in my ability to source cleverly and work within my clients budget. I have worked on numerous projects both in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, where I have assisted clients to reach their end vision for their home. I am able to offer various levels of involvement within a project.
I have recently relocated to Brisbane, Australia and look forward to developing new business relationships with my fellow locals. Please visit my Services page for more details.
