We engaged Coco Republic Interior Design Service in Sydney to design and style the furniture and accessories for the interior of our new home on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. Natasha was appointed as the Interior Designer for our project.
Our brief to Natasha was to create a stylish by relaxed beach feel for our home, which is an architect-designed home, with sandstone, weatherboard, detailed timber windows and wide western spotted gum timber flooring. It was important that the interior design keep with the beach house feel already in the “bones” of the house. We told Natasha we loved the Hamptons look but also the luxury and style of Ralph Lauren. We gave Natasha free reign with the design as we had kept very little furniture from our previous home as it did not suit the beach house feel we were trying to create.
Not only did Natasha meet the brief, her design exceeded our expectations. It was absolutely perfect and just what we were hoping for. Natasha’s design was luxurious but relaxed with beautiful, exciting and interesting choices of furnishings, materials and fittings. She also chose the accessories to give the house a very homely, lived-in feel.
Natasha is a very talented designer who demonstrated complete professionalism throughout the whole design, installation and styling process. She is well organized, hard working and very personable. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to prospective clients or employers.

We have recently completed a major renovation of our house at 11 The Point Rd, Woolwich of which Natasha was contracted as the Interior Designer.
In the time we have worked with Natasha, she demonstrated both a great sense for design and a great deal of professionalism in the delivery of the various design components. During the course of the project we made a number of changes to the building, which Natasha provided advice and guidance. Additionally we had to contend with deficiencies in the design documentations provided by the architectural firm, which Natasha assisted in resolving.
She worked closely with the builder, various contractors and ourselves, to ensure the most desirable outcomes for the project as a whole were achieved. She has taken her role very seriously and has given the impression that she takes a strong personal interest in her work.
She clearly has a great deal of talent and passion for design. Combined with her professionalism and personable nature, she has been a pleasure to deal with.
We would have no hesitation in recommending her for any role in the design industry.
I recently completed an extensive thirteen-month renovation of my apartment in Sydney’s inner city. I chose Natasha of Coco Republic as my interior designer after meeting the who’s who of Sydney interior design.
As a guy who works in the advertising industry I wanted an apartment that was truly unique and somewhat of an interior design marvel.
Tough brief, right?
You would have thought so, but Natasha made the entire thing seem easy. She managed to select a style that was completely in keeping with my personality, my practical requirements and more importantly that delivered the wow factor I was hoping for.
In the two months since the fit out has been completed, I’ve hosted four design magazines for photo shoots (all planning to feature the apartment in upcoming issues) and a stack of “new” friends wanting to hang out on Friday and Saturday nights.
Natasha’s brief was to make my place amazing and she’s done such a good job that I now feel like I run a nightclub.
I can’t recommend her highly enough.

We recently employed Coco Republic Interior Design to redecorate and furnish our entrance, living and dining areas for our house in Balmoral. The results have been excellent.
Natasha Levak led the project and developed an innovative floor plan to enable the best use of space and enhance the look of the main living area. We were so impressed with her overall design that we asked her to help us implement all of her recommendations.
She coordinated the sourcing of each item, chased suppliers, sourced samples and tradespeople and was always contactable to us. We can’t decide which of the items of furniture that she recommended (and sourced) is our favourite- the beautiful and comfortable soft leather sofa, the ottoman in such a soft but striking fabric or the subtle textures of the artwork.
Natasha has a wonderful sense of style and an ability to visualize the end result which she was able to apply to create a beautiful home for us. She was also able to construct a design that was practical for our lifestyle (and that of our two year old twins)- quite an accomplishment!
Our home now looks seamless, stylish and really quite beautiful.
We have no hesitation in recommending Natasha to others.
