About Me

 

If you’re looking for the only designer who cares about you and creating your ideal home, the only designer who will honestly save you money, the only designer who will diligently save you time and the only designer who guarantees to complete your project successfully to the very end, then you have found me! 

After many years in business I have perfected my proven 15 step design process to ensure a successful and stress free completion. Along the way, I’ll be saving your precious time by handling all aspects of the project. With our designer discounts I will save you money by working with key suppliers who source incredible furniture and finishes from around the world. I will save you the pain of costly mistakes as I work with my A-Team of trades. So whether you have just received your plans from the Architect, picked up the keys to your new home or you’re ready for a change but have no idea where to start you have come to the right place.

I listen to my clients and help them bring their ideas to life. I'm great at gentle persuasion to push you out of your comfort zone, and it's those little pushes that make for the best interiors. My goal is to create a home that is a direct reflection of you, your family and the way you want to live. But it's no fun unless we take a little bit of a risk.

Before I started my business in 2003 I had begun renovating my home in Sans Souci in Sydney and just fell in love with the whole process. So much so I became completely obsessed and would use any opportunity to design, improve or paint something. I would be re-arranging my friends lounge rooms or bookcases, creating little vignettes, changing things around and generally making a nuisance of myself. However, they all loved it and kept encouraging me to do more and more. Before I knew it I was studying at the School of Colour and Design and leaped head first into starting my own business. My daughter was just 8 months old, and the dining table was covered in paint colour chips and anything I could get my hands on to get started. I could hardly sleep I was so excited about what the future held and to be doing something I loved so much!! 

Fast forward 16 years and what feels like a lifetime of living, breathing and sleeping interior design (yes I even dream interior design) as I have raised 3 kids, experienced 1 divorce, bought 3 homes, renovated 2 from top to bottom, now working on my third and acquired 3 crazy pug dogs. I’m loving what I do even more today than ever! Each new project brings exciting challenges and sparks new ideas and imagination. It’s a constant evolving process too as I keep up to date with all the gorgeous furniture and finishes that go into my interiors. I have built incredible connections with trades and suppliers that without them none of my dreams would come true either. If you work with my team we will literally bring your dreams to life too. We have done it many times over following our design process and you can see the results yourself in my portfolio.

Call me now to start your new project, I'm here for you, and always with a smile, enthusiasm and genuine love for your design. I'll save you time, money and heartbreak. In return, you will have the beautiful home you've always dreamt of. I guarantee it! And I can’t wait to meet you. Ph: Jodie 0412-566-905
