Hi I’m Bettina. Welcome.

When a space functions well and its style inspires us, it really supports and stimulates our wellbeing. We feel calmer, more creative, more ourselves. So how do we imagine and create such spaces? No matter how expansive or cosy our home, how generous or particular our budget?

This is where I can help. Efficiently. Effectively. I bring design skills and knowledge refined across 20 years of practice, both here in Melbourne, but also in London and the U.S. Initially working for an award-winning architectural firm, I then stepped out into private practice, specialising in residential renovation and furnishing projects.  Across this time I’ve learnt the questions to ask, the principles to employ, the possibilities and the pitfalls… all of which serve to guide your decision making as we take your project forward.

The designs you see here are the result of personal conversation and happy collaboration between myself and my clients – designs that bring a felt sense of comfort and express the client’s own unique character.

If you would like to discuss your own project with me, please be in contact. Until then, warm wishes.

Each project is as unique as the person imagining it. And so it should be if the ultimate design is to be a true expression of one’s character and lifestyle. So too, our working relationship is structured to meet your particular circumstance. In other words, I can help you as much or as little as you like. For some clients, this can mean partnering across all stages of the interior design journey – renovations, space planning, material selections, furnishing, and styling. Other clients seek guidance in one, or perhaps two, key areas.

No matter the degree of support you’re looking for, I invite you to contact me for an initial conversation. Without obligation, we can take some time to discuss your vision for the project and, if possible, tour the site together. From there, we can determine the ways in which I can be of most value to you.

Services

Space Planning
Skillful spatial design is the cornerstone of our design process and helps every other element that follows to fall into place. We help realise the potentials of the property both as a whole and as a collection of its individual parts. Predictive ‘devil’s advocate’ thinking addresses the practical and the aesthetic in unison at the planning stage.
Cabinetry, Joinery & Furniture Design
After cabinet and joinery drawings are reviewed in 3D and specifications have been finalised, we can provide the skills of our trusted local cabinet and custom joinery makers to suit the needs of every type of project.
Interior Finish Selections
The finishes palette builds on the character and vitality of the felt experience as well as the final look. It is defined by the treatment of all walls, floors, ceilings, joinery, fixtures, hardware, and decorative details.
Lighting
Good lighting is the key to creating a pleasurable ambiance, so creating an optimal level of sensory comfort that can only be achieved when the quality of lighting is considered is an ideal that we care a great deal about. With so many opportunities available today with LED lighting, we can consider a more artistic and atmospheric approach to the traditional norms.
Furnishing & Styling
Furnishing encompasses all personal effects from furniture, window treatments, rugs, artwork, and accessories. We take care in putting together choices that satisfy the needs for quality, comfort, the timeline available, all within the agreed-upon budget. The success of our schemes lies in holding a clear overriding story for the property as a whole, while setting up dynamic relationships and points of interest in the pieces selected. Our professional styling provides attention to detail at the finish.
