My background includes a history in film production, starting in art departments before moving into large-scale project management.
Five years ago I decided to follow my personal passion for interiors and architecture and left film to study interior design & decoration at the prestigious Design Centre Enmore. Following this worked with Artedomus and Porters Paints, before relocating to Berry, two hours south of Sydney.
I am an accredited member of industry groups the Design Institute of Australia and the Colour Society of Australia.
South Coast Colour Services predominantly from Wollongong to Berry and along the entire south coast of NSW but has recently completed projects in other areas of NSW as well as in the United States.
My approach to colour and interior decoration
Colour is the single most transformative design element in any room.
As a colour consultant I can balance what appeals to the eye and how your space will feel when used, by reworking nothing but colour. From paint to decor I can select the colour palette that will transform any area.
Each project is approached individually and I never need to make choices based on trends. Instead we will discuss what will bring harmony and interest to your space, and I will present you with a concept-based design that will suit the space for many years to come.
Interiors that inspire are imbued with personality from what seems like years of faultless selections, but may indeed be a new home or space created by the astute use of design elements such as colour, as well as texture, shape and pattern.
Using colour harmonies I love to relate interior colour palettes back to external surroundings. It’s a great way to settle new buildings in their environment, to make a new place feel like home – or to bring some life back into interior spaces you may have inherited from previous owners (and decades!).
On the South Coast of NSW there is no shortage of inspiring palettes to draw from. I am very lucky to be based in the Shoalhaven, where I can look to the mountains, hills or beaches to freshen my eyes to new colours everyday.
