Let's create spaces you never want to leave.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your home is a reflection of you.

You are a reflection of your home.

"Let’s go on a journey together and create a home you truly love to spend time in."

I’m a Lifestyle Coach and Interior Designer blending wellness + design. 

I’m kinda unique in that way, and I bet that’s why you’re here too.  

You’re a woman who values her health and her home. 

You value your family's health and your connection to your family. 

You want a beautiful, functional home that the kids will never want to leave and neither will any of your friends!

I believe that good design is impactful and that your everyday life can be enhanced by the beauty, mood and style of your home. 

You shouldn’t have to wait for your yearly holiday to experience luxury, relaxation, wellness and connection in the spaces you dwell in. We can ‘Dwell Well’ on the daily when we design, style and create spaces and homes that align with how we want to feel and the experiences we want to have in them.

My clients often say that when working with me they feel completely supported and understood. 

What sets me apart from many other Interior Designers is that I offer a very personalised service meaning when you hire me you get consistent and ongoing support and updates throughout the entire project PLUS I have over 20 years of knowledge and experience working in our family building and construction company, so I know building homes from the outside in which means I can help you design a well balanced, well designed, harmonious home that works for you and your family.

I not only use my know-how and skill to bring to life your ideas and dreams, but I call on my intuition, my knowing and my connection to you to truly understand what it is you want and even more importantly how you want to feel in the spaces we are co-creating.

Known for creating spaces with warmth, contentment and soul, I will connect your ideas with how you want to feel in a space to bring to life your home.

I work on custom design, concept and styling from single rooms and all the way through to residential new home builds, turning your ideas and visions into your dream home.

Your home is a reflection of you.

You are a reflection of your home.
