Hi, I’m Emma, an experienced interior stylist and homewares buyer with a knack for taking a client’s vague idea, quickly sourcing the perfect furniture and homewares and helping them create what they didn’t even know they wanted. I’m passionate about making stylish interiors affordable and accessible to everyone, no matter their budget or where they are in Australia.
Already working in both the online and interior design industries, I was a stylist for an interior designer in 2010 who had an online store when I came up with the idea of starting my own affordable interior decorating business with the addition of e-decorating as well as in-home decorating.
Many of my friends in their 20s and 30s were buying their first homes and wanted advice on how to create stylish interiors on a budget. I was passionate about making this a service that wasn’t only available to the rich, as is often the assumption. There are plenty of people out there wanting a stylish two-bedroom apartment or first family home.
With a degree in business and marketing and diploma in interior design, I was able to create the perfect decorating service.
I’m an ideas person who likes to suggest rather than do. And I certainly don’t tell people I know their home better than they do. My approach is more relaxed and casual than hiring a designer who does absolutely everything. I want the client to have a lot of input in the look and feel of the home, after all it’s their sanctuary not mine. Often my client’s seek out my advice on design decisions that they’re ready to make rather than asking me to take over the entire project.
I am a self-confessed “design nerd,” obsessed with interior styling even as a kid, I make interior decorating affordable and non-threatening for everyone. I’ll show you how decorating can be fun, not stressful!
If you’re looking to start re-decorating or renovating give me a call to discuss your project to see how I can assist.
