Luisa is a very talented designer and stylist with a strong visual flair, and one of the most organised and professional people we have ever worked with. We approached her to help furnish and decorate our newly purchased unit, a blank canvas. It was very important to us that the design of our new space reflected who we were and created an environment that was appropriate to our needs. Luisa delivered beyond expectation on all levels, she quickly understood our lifestyle, aesthetic preferences and opened our eyes to possibilities we would never had contemplated without her. We also appreciated Luisa’s approach to the design process meant that the project always felt like a true partnership.She has helped us create a beautiful and practical living space that is a joy to live in. We would not hesitate to recommend Luisa. Her sense of design and professionalism are a winning combination and make her a delight to work with.

Being able to make a space your home is one of the most special things you can do. Having a brilliant designer and project manager like Luisa on board to manage the whole renovation made the process so much easier and more enjoyable for us. We absolutely could not have done it without her. She understood and delivered on our brief to completely transform a very outdated apartment into a modern home with a clean, neutral, minimalist look so that we could add colour and personality with our furniture and artwork. Crucial to the brief was making the most of the space and natural light, which included removing the majority of a wall to open up the kitchen to become an open plan living space. The layout of the bathroom was also completely reworked to make a small room feel more spacious. Creative storage solutions were included and we’re really happy with the quality finishes and fixtures chosen. Every surface was upgraded! Not only do we love where we live but we also got a great return on our investment.

I’m very pleased with Luisa’s work on my apartment. Other interior designers I interviewed had a fixed idea of what they thought was right for my apartment and didn’t seem to take into consideration my feedback. What I liked about Luisa’s approach from our very first meeting, is that she works with you, together from the initial interview to the brief, choosing the pieces and then styling them once they are delivered. Luisa takes a thorough brief, presents you options but always takes into account your preferences. Luisa has a great sense of style and eye for how things work together. Friends have commented on how homely my apartment feels but also how gorgeous it looks. Importantly, Luisa tailored the project to my budget and stuck to the budget. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.
I felt so daunted and overwhelmed at the thought of furnishing my empty new apartment. I had no idea what to do and I hate shopping. I just wanted someone else to make the decisions for me. Once Luisa showed me what was possible I couldn’t believe how excited I got about having something created just for me, and seeing it all come together. People are blown away when they walk in the front door and that feels really good. I never thought I could afford an interior designer but it turns out it doesn’t have to be expensive and the result is definitely worth every cent.
It’s amazing what a difference bringing in a professional can make to your home. I felt like I was about half way there with what I had done, but only after Luisa’s help do I feel like my place is 100 per cent finished. Luisa is really good at figuring out a person’s style and taste and then finding furniture and accessories to suit. She has contacts to suppliers I had never heard of which helped me find items you don’t see everywhere. I was surprised about how even simple things, like moving furniture around or hanging artworks in a particular way, could make such a difference to how a space looks and feels. I would definitely recommend Luisa.
Luisa was a great help in finding what I didn’t have the time to seek out for myself. She took a thorough brief so she really got to know my personal style and preferences and found items to match. I love peacocks and that was the theme for my bedroom makeover and she found just the perfect fabric from a trade-only supplier, which I wouldn’t have been able to buy myself. I am really happy with the results, it feels like me and reflects my personality, but I know I wouldn’t have been able to do it on my own.
The interest in our townhouse was amazing, and as a result we sold prior to auction. As our real estate agent Matt Bolin said, there was “a frenzy” on the first open day. The presentation was impressive and certainly enhanced the property’s appeal. I would like to express our appreciation for the work you did Luisa in the tasteful selection and styling of furniture and accessories which gave the townhouse a welcoming and comfortable feel.
Luisa’s support in styling our house enabled the property to be presented to prospective buyers to its best potential, having due regard for the architecture of the house and environment of the property. We were delighted with the result, which was handled very professionally and proficiently. Thank you Luisa!

Luisa we would like to express our appreciation of the great job you did in styling our apartment prior to its sale. A de-clutter and strategic placing of additional furniture made an amazing difference to the ambience and overall appearance of our space. Your inherent style turned our dated but well loved rooms into an apartment that would appeal to anyone looking for a stylish spot in this lovely suburb. It’s hard to believe that the changes you made would have such a big impact. We appreciate the friendly and professional service and attention to detail that you offer – we couldn’t be happier.
