Interior Decorating & Design

Whether it’s a room transformation or a complete home-makeover, I work with you to create a space that reflects your personality, complements your lifestyle and fits your budget.

I can help you to take the stress out of making decisions and the hard-work out of the interior design process, so you can feel excited about living in the home you love.

I believe that every decorative object and design element that fills your space should have meaning, serve a purpose, and fulfil a function – to create stylish, practical homes that bring joy and happiness to your every day. Through the consultation and design process, I focus on the aesthetics and design elements of your existing space, such as finishes, furniture and accessories and use a combination of materials, objects and visual elements to tie it altogether.

Design Process

What to Expect

Here is a general outline of what you can expect when you work with me on your project:

  • Stage 1

    Initial Meeting

    • I will meet with you for a comprehensive initial consultation to discuss your project requirements and key objectives.
    • I will carefully listen to your vision and define the scope of your project.
    • Following the meeting, I will provide you with the fee proposal outlining the scope of works and the fee structure.
  • Stage 2


    • Once the project is under way, the creative process begins. I will investigate the colour scheme, finishes, design style and furniture placement that will lay the foundation for design direction.
    • I present the concept designs to you together with the budget estimate for your feedback.
  • Stage 3

    Site Review

    • If applicable, we meet with any relevant trades to review the extent of works and discuss costs, time frame and structural and practical considerations.
  • Stage 4


    • This is when the design comes to life as I get into the details of the design scheme. I refine the internal layouts, joinery design, specify key finishes and materials, select furniture, rugs and artworks, and define lighting and window treatments.
    • I present to you the schematic designs together with the physical samples of fixtures and finishes and updated budget forecast for your review and sign off.
  • Stage 5


    • Floor layouts and elevations are finalised, and the detailed schedules for all fixtures, finishes and fittings are prepared for implementation of the design scheme.
    • I meet with you for any final amendments and sign off.
  • Stage 6

    Pricing & Quote Approval

    • Once you are happy with the chosen design and documentation, all final costs for fixtures, finishes and materials from the suppliers and trades are finalised.
    • We review the quotes and time frame and seek your feedback and sign off.
  • Stage 7

    Design Management

    • Once the contracts are signed and commencement date is set, the work begins. I will start procuring specified fixtures, fittings, furniture, etc through my trade suppliers.
    • I confirm the lead times, delivery fees and payment terms with you, and supervise the deliveries to make sure it all arrives safely.
    • I liaise with you and your trades on any variations or design queries.
  • Stage 8

    Finish & Style

    • This is where it all comes together. Once all ordered items have arrived, I take care of the final placement and styling, as well as any defects that need addressing.
    • We complete the final walk through, prepare the handover document with product details and warranties and photograph the finished space.
  • Stage 9

    Project Review

    • The project is reviewed, and any defects are addressed and rectified. And then we leave you to simply enjoy your new space!

I could not be happier with my lovely new bathrooms (main and ensuite). Someone said of my ensuite, “It’s like being in a 5-star hotel!” Viktoryia, the designer, spends as much time with you as you need, suggesting options that perhaps you might not have considered on your own, but which turn out to be exactly right. The individual attention means that your space will truly be one of a kind.
