Interiors & Exteriors Design

We work on small, medium and large scale projects building and remodelling for function and beautiful spaces. Our team will guide you through the maze of possibilities associated with design, style, colour, texture, lighting and more. Creatively we help blend all of these aspects together to make a real difference to how your project looks and feels.

When it comes to your initial meeting with our interior designer, a little preparation can go a long way. Before we get together, identify some of your style preferences and set goals regarding the functionality of your spaces, your budget and your time frame.

Things to consider are external selections, wall finishes, flooring options, joinery ideas, sinks and tapware, window coverings, colours, lighting, garden hardworks and smaller fixtures like handles, hooks and switches.

Do some research by exploring design ideas, colour schemes, and furniture online, in magazines and in books. Save appealing pictures in a file.
