I have worked in the design industry for over twenty years as an Interior Designer with my own design practice based in Brisbane. During this time, I have worked on various sized projects & budgets, from redesigning a bathroom in a worker's cottage in Bardon on a tight budget to working as the Interior Designer on a multimillion, 5 level new build on the river front in Hawthorne, which included designing x 2 kitchens, Butler's Pantry, outdoor kitchen, 6 bathrooms, powder room & a 12 seat theatrette.
As an Interior Designer & Project Manager, I have worked on various styles of homes in varied conditions of repair & size of renovation projects including -
Queenslander Homes in Ascot, Hendra, Wooloowin, Banyo, Wavell Heights, Camp Hill, Norman Park, Cooparoo, Bulimba, Hawthorne, Morningside, Bardon, Chelmer & Graceville. A number of these homes were raised, requiring kitchen & bathroom designs as well as designing the renovated floorplans (drafting of floor & elevation plans) & reallocation of rooms including dividing wall insertion & removal, flooring, lighting schedule & plans, window & door schedules, interior & exterior colourschemes.
