Spatial planning is a key stage in the interior design process, and should always be undertaken as early as possible in a project. A poorly planned space can have many negative effects.

When planning any interior space, you want it to be aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and practical, as well as being conducive to everyday living. 

Our goal is to develop the overall picture and bring all the elements together to create a space that’s functional, beautiful, and that meets your lifestyle and needs. We consider colours, furniture placement, and accessories. 



We’ll be involved with your home renovation or building plan from the outset of the project, along with the architect and the builder. 

We’ll create a detailed conceptual design of your ideal renovation or new build, focusing on the details and how they all work together to ensure you have a cohesive look and a home you will love.

We work with clients to assist with all selections from paint and wallpaper to cladding, flooring, tiles, joinery, door hardware, lighting design, full kitchen, bathroom, and laundry design, along with the selection of all relevant fixtures, finishes and fittings.

We can provide all design concepts, specifications, and full detailed drawings.


The finishing touches make a house into a home. Your home should make you feel happy and reflect your personality and lifestyle. We will manage the procurement, organise delivery from our suppliers, and then style everything in your home.

We can source furniture, decor, fabrics, window treatments, upcycle existing treasures, commission bespoke upholstered pieces, and produce custom-built furniture.

We have access to amazing wholesale and trade-only decor and furniture suppliers to bring you quality products at great prices.


Home staging is an interior design technique that accentuates the positive to create emotional connections between potential buyers and your property. 

When done effectively, it can add many thousands to your eventual sale price.

Design Consultation:  We begin with an on-site meeting to learn about your needs, wants, and to assess your space and take measurements if required. From the consultation, we will create a package specific to your project which consists of a site report, a look-, and a quote for our proposed design fees. The quote outlines the hours and procedures estimated to complete your project. We will then work with you to make adjustments that match your requirements, priorities and budgets.

Design Concepts:  Once you have accepted our quote, we will begin working on your concept designs, plans, and renders. We work through each process outlined in the fee proposal, communicating with you at every stage until the final design concept gets your seal of approval.

Ordering:  At this stage of the project, we collate a full product/finishes schedule. This allows you to see a breakdown of where your funds are being allocated. We remove frustration by ordering all the necessary items and products from our range of trusted suppliers to make the process as seamless as possible.

Management:  We manage all deliveries and installations to ensure the fastest, most effective turn-around that is stress free and works with your time schedule.

Completion:  Upon completion of your project, we remain in contact to answer your questions and assist you with any further requirements, and provide costings if necessary. We have a zero-defects policy, and ensure work is completed to your satisfaction.

We'd love to chat to you about what we can do for you. Please get in touch for an obligation free conversation.
