Words by Danielle Grover and Claire Limbrick
“Your home is your safe place. A place to unwind, create memories, a place to ‘just be’. My passion is creating stylish, liveable spaces for you to do exactly that!”
What is your best renovation tip? If you’re on a tight budget, don’t be tempted to scrimp on ‘things that move’ – hinges/drawer runners/tapware etc. You can easily pull back costs in other places, but generally it’s worth spending the money on anything with a mechanical aspect.
What is your favourite interior design style? Bohemian – it allows people to be themselves and easily display things they love! Mementos gathered travelling, or collections of sentimental items… It’s definitely my favourite!
What’s your favourite product? I’m a sucker for sheer curtains! They work almost anywhere and create such a dreamy atmosphere.
Why do you do what you do? Interior Design combines my love of communicating, solving problems and creativity. It means I can create liveable spaces for others, and the buzz I get out of seeing the joy on their faces when it’s all finished gets me every time!
Who inspires you? I can’t say any one person – I’m inspired by all the wonderful people I know who are chasing their own dreams, who juggle family life and businesses with a smile and a great attitude, who build others up and don’t tear them down. They are my people.
