"We are constantly striving for new and innovative design techniques and are inspired by international trends and designs. We live and breathe interiors and so our key objective on every project is to push the design envelope and develop an interior which is truly breathtaking. Equally we as a team value the relationships we build with our clients along the way. Each project and client is unique and individual and so our client relationships are just as important to us as the interiors we design. In fact the two are intrinsically entwined.” Louise Walsh
Creating interiors that take your breath away and stand the test of time, is at the heart of our design ethos.

Every project is a (fun) labour of love.

Recently featured in the Andrew Martin International Design Review book, we specialise in high-end residential design and decoration, residential developments, marine design and luxury resorts.
How we work
But we’re more than just a design firm. We’re passionate about people.
Each project and client is unique and individual. Our clients are just as important to us as the interiors we design. In fact, the two are intrinsically entwined. We work with our clients to intimately understand their brief and how they live and move between spaces day to day.
From the contemporary to the classic, we help our clients achieve their own beautiful aesthetic, to fuse form, flair and function and to inject personality, continuity and comfort into their space.
We work with best artisans in the industry, incorporate high quality finishes and use custom-designed furniture to ensure the correct proportion, finish and ‘language’ is spoken throughout every home.
Through our wealth of knowledge and experience, we create timeless interiors that make your heart flutter when you see them.
Where we are
Our head office is in beautiful Lennox Head with studios also located in Brisbane and Sydney.
We're grounded in nature and inspired by the world around us. Our projects take us to busy site meetings in busy cities around Australia and the globe. Then we quietly return to our little bit of beachside paradise, to design and create unique havens for our clients.
“We believe that there's no limit to what you can achieve when you surround yourself with incredible people. The secret to our success lies with our passionate team of designers who each share our mission to provide our clients with a breathtaking interior which exceeds their expectations.” Louise Walsh
