I am a newly qualified Interior Designer and Stylist.
I specialise in residential and holiday rental styling and my design aesthetic is predominantly a blend of contemporary and postmodern. I work with clients to balance function and form and make the best use of their space to reflect individuality and personal style.
I am an owner, operator and stylist of my own holiday rental properties on the Gold Coast. I have an eye for quality and uncluttered design that eases travellers into ‘switch-off’ mode and transcends them into complete escapism.
I have 20 years’ experience in corporate government leadership and hold university qualifications in Business, Project Management and Interior Design. I am a parent, partner, mentor and space creator. I use my skills, work and life experience to engage with a broad range of clients and am quick to determine how to approach the client/designer relationship to deliver the brief.
I am immediately likeable, personable and professional and I work with clients to explore and interpret their design aesthetic to transform their space to meet their needs. I invite you to connect with me.
The Sydney-based client had a basic brief for this fit out, furnish and style of his two bedroom Airbnb apartment located in Surfers Paradise. This was a step away from coastal styling and a move into a more sophisticated space, combining industrial concrete with soft textures and muted tones.
This Sydney-based client also required a full fit out, install and style for her Airbnb high rise apartment located in Surfers Paradise. With broad, open ocean views, the style brief was coastal contemporary. Quality furnishings and minimal decor were selected to complete the project.
This two bedroom Airbnb apartment located in Broadbeach underwent a full renovation and was transformed from being dated, dark and cramped to bright, light and spacious. Fresh, light finishes, oversized windows, a leafy outlook and space-creating mirrors provide that contemporary beachside holiday vibe.
Innisfail Community Centre
The brief was to develop a concept design for a community centre/library in the Far North Queensland town of Innisfail. My design solution was to draw from the rich Indigenous culture within the area and showcase the strength of Indigenous design and art through the development of multipurpose spaces, including children’s dreamtime library, gallery and a community meeting space called The Gundy Collective. The concept sketches for the street facade were inspired by customised screens that can be fitted to windows. The effect of the light shining through is an artwork in its own right. Given the northerly aspect and the flood of daylight throughout the day, a custom design of an indigenous dot painting created by local artists would be a simple and effective way to showcase design using natural elements.
