To me, good design realises the potential of any space. It involves considered choices teamed with a sense of bravery. As a designer, I have a strong understanding of how interiors come together, from the architecture of a space to the furniture and soft furnishings that fill it. Colour palette, material choice and finishes are all equally important - each element is essential to creating one cohesive look that is both resolved and innovative.
On a personal level, I have an immense appreciation for a range of design periods and styles. For me, spaces truly work when balance is created through contrast. They should tell a story about the people who inhabit them.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some exceptional clients on projects that span from residential refurbishments and new-builds to key commercial and hospitality fit-outs. My initial industry experience was in styling for interior and lifestyle magazines, such as Australian House & Garden and Belle, which I maintain a passion for today. I spent 9 years working at Coco Republic Interior Design as a Senior Interior Designer were I built a comprehensive portfolio that displays my ability to work across a range of interior genres. Having completed a Bachelor of Design at UNSW, Sydney, I am formally educated and trained in an industry that I truly love.
As an interior designer, I am required to design ultimately for my clients. This flexibility, along with an ever-changing industry has imbued me with an innate sense of creative freedom. Today, contemporary design has to encompass several key issues: financial, social and importantly, environmental points of view, all of which need to be addressed by client and designer, together.
