Dulux Colour Forecast 2022

Reno all up on your head?

Need to make your own moodboard?

Hey Designer,

I’m Kathryn, an Australian Designer known for creating relaxed residential environments.

My work encapsulates my inquisitive mind and my ability to delve deep into the subconscious to create homes that reflect the deeply personal connection for those that inhabit the space.

Our homes provide more than shelter, they’re a support network that inspires expansion both emotionally and spiritually providing opportunity for growth and reflection.

Sympathetic bathroom renovations

If you’re renovating your bathroom and want to keep it within the style of the rest of your home you may want to think about using neutral materials or draw inspiration from existing materials or colours and bring those into the bathroom. However you do it, just keep in mind what’s already in the home and what element you’ll want to bring into the space.

How to achieve a timeless design

If you want your home to be fresh and relevant today, and for years to come, then timeless design could be the style you’ve been looking for. Timeless design is lasting rather than temporary and at its core functionality enables the design to embrace both its space and environment.

What’s your design style?

If you already know what your design style is then Pinterest is really effective for nutting out those finer details of your project. If you don’t know what your design style is Pinterest can be mind-boggling. And when there’s an overwhelming amount of spaces and rooms that you like, how are you meant to know which one is going to suit your home? If you’re just starting out and have no idea what your aesthetic or design style is then this is the perfect guide to get you started.

Functionality in the home

The function of a space may seem obvious and quite simple at first but when you factor in how you and your family live in the space and what your daily routine is, it becomes clear that functionality is determined by lifestyle and habits.

Tiny home design ideas

Tiny homes are nothing new, but in Australia our thirst for ever-increasing oversized homes means we’ve turned a blind eye to the benefits of small spaces. Whilst they have their challenges, living in a small space doesn’t mean you miss out on a big luxe life.

Why I became an interior designer

Why I became an interior designer

I get asked why I became an interior designer all the time! And seriously, I've never have a good answer because I've never actually thought about. It felt as though it's something I've always wanted to do. Until I went back and searched my life history and experiences did I understand the real reason why I became an interior designer.
