Designers get you the wow!

Why you need a designer

You’re about to embark on a new build or renovation, and inevitably the question of whether to hire a designer comes up. Do you, or don’t you?

Design has become much more mainstream over the years, and for good reason: builders, developers, and savvy homeowners all know the importance of joining forces with a creative professional.

We're experts

Interior design is a delicate balance of art, science, and business smarts. Just as accountants and lawyers go to school to fully learn their craft, so do interior designers.

You want the very best with it comes to your time, money, and expectations, so go ahead and inquire about our policies, fees, services, and education. Sadly, not everyone who calls themselves an interior designer actually fits the bill, and that affects you on every level.

Avoid costly mistakes

Ever buy a piece of furniture that looked amazing in-store, but was too big or too small once you got it home? As trained professionals, we steer you clear of common mistakes, and help you nail your design dreams perfectly from the start.

Refine your ideas

We won’t take over your home and inflict our design style on you; a great interior designer will work with you, refining your visions, guiding you to achieve something unique and wholly yours.

You'll save money

Yes, you heard me right. My job is to keep you focused, on budget, and save you time and effort. Our trade discounts are a terrific means of obtaining substantial savings on your furnishings and interior fittings at the end of the project too.

Get connected

Designers work with a wide variety of trusted trade professionals, and we hand select the perfect team for your projects. New builds and renovations can become expensive and stressful without the right team on your side – having peace of mind that your project is in good hands is worth its weight in gold.

You'll love your home

We’re trained to think differently, spatially, and to see an overall picture that clients often cannot.

I help to give you the “wow” factor and polished aesthetic you’ve been looking for; thinking outside of the box is what we live to do, all day long.
