Our Approach

I believe that your home should be a reflection of you and your personality ... home is where your heart lives.

My Story

Around 25 or so years ago I wandered into my local Spotlight store to buy a couple of metres of ribbon.  I've no idea if I ever even used that ribbon (I do tend to buy fabrics because I love them not to actually use them!), but what I left the shop with that day was a job to apply for in the dress fabrics department. I didn't get that job because instead I was offered a job in the furnishings department. Well, for someone who loves decorating as much I do it was the start of a whole new world!

I stayed with Spotlight for 5 years moving from counter sales to soft furnishings coordinator, then to head office in the buying team, and then a stint as the "fixer" (sorting and restoring order to stores custom-made furnishings departments), before ending up managing the custom-made furnishings installation office.

I needed more of that decorating fix that I loved so I moved on and started my own interiors business specialising in window treatments and soft furnishings.  I got to spend my days with my loves of decorating, styling, and old homes!

Along the way I was contracted by Penguin Books as technical consultant and writer of the window furnishings chapter of The Penguin Australia Do-It-Yourself Manual  - imagine a whole book about renovations and I was included!!!

I have an appreciation for the beauty that can be seen in just about all 'styles'.  My own personal style is a mix of French farmhouse, country, Australian country, Hamptons, and traditional.  It's a mix but it can all work!

Lover of Interiors and Renovations

I've loved decorating and interiors styling since I was a little girl ... actually, I can't remember not wanting to re-decorate or re-arrange!  Sharing that love with others is an added part of the joy!
