What do you love most about Interior Design? 

I have a passion for residential design, where spaces of retreat, comfort and love are created. I love catering to residents’ lifestyles, hobbies and personal style through the selection of colour, texture and furnishings. 

My favourite aspects of the design process include creating mood boards, design brainstorming, initial sketches and researching new, on trend products which I can introduce into projects. 

What do you love most about living in Wollongong?

There are always new places to explore, whether it’s a beach, national park, cafe, market or a cute boutique store; it's never a disappointment. Nothing beats strolling along the gorgeous beaches, sand underfoot and taking in the fresh aroma as you listen to the waves crash in the distance. 

What is your favourite space to design and why?

The kitchen, as I believe it is the heart of a home. It is utilised for preparing food which is made with love, along with being an entertaining space where you can enjoy a drink and good conversation. The design configurations for this space are endless, that's why I love it.
