Libby was an enormous help in refreshing many aspects of our house: painting, new storage, custom joinery, wallpaper, artwork and new furniture. She provided a cohesive vision within rooms and across the whole house while weaving in our personal stamp.
Impressively, we have two young boys and Libby managed to produce options that were stylish, on budget but still kid friendly.
On top of her creative contributions, her project management inputs were huge - organising trusted tradies (we'd have no idea who to choose!) and occasionally even meeting them when we couldn't be at home. We were also super appreciative of Libby's rapid communication over email, pushing us to make decisions to keep things moving and presenting options (though not overwhelming us) at multiple budget points.
We love our new home - thanks Libby!

I engaged Libby to design built in wardrobes, desks and shelving in my teenage sons' bedrooms, as well as storage and shelving that incorporated a gas fireplace in the living room. To say I am happy with the result would be an understatement! Libby designed both beautiful and functional solutions that have solved storage problems and greatly improved the aesthetic appeal of our home's interior. Her use of colour and attention to detail was outstanding. The tradesman Libby recommended were skilled and efficient and her obvious good relationship with them ensured that the project implementation was trouble free and on time. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Libby's services.

Libby listened to what we wanted to achieve and prepared a range of options to meet both our brief and budget. She was conscious of providing several options, allowing us to balance between high-end and every day. Libby offered flexible delivery solutions, from full service concept design and project management to initial concept ideas for us to take delivery of. This allowed us to be as hands-on, or hands-off as we wanted. We are very happy with the finished product and had good experiences with the contractors and suppliers that Libby recommended along the way.

Libby was a godsend to us, a strong headed couple who can never agree on anything. She helped us design our forever home from conception stage to complete. She assisted us with inspirational concepts for each room of the house which guided our choices. Her professionalism was evident always especially in dealing with my spouse who liked to control many aspects. The furniture and soft furnishings which she helped us chose for our previous hoe fitted perfectly into the new one (and Libby had taken this all into consideration when assisting us). She was even on hand to assist us with last minute paint colour decisions that would puzzle first time home builder such as us.
Ever patient, always creative and exceptionally considerate and professional, I would highly recommend Libby for any interior design task - from conception to completion.

We hired Libby to help us reinstate some character into our two bedroom art deco apartment, make it a more functional place to live in and help prepare the apartment for selling. She totally transformed the space from feeling cramped and impractical for our family of four to feeling spacious, practical, harmonious with the outside and above all, a beautiful and serene place to live in.
When we sold, we achieved a record result at auction. We have already recommended Libby to family and friends and will definitely use her services again for styling our new home.

We are so thrilled with our decision to engage Libby to help us to transform the entire downstairs floor of our home, including our son's bedroom upstairs for his 10th birthday and outside entertainment area. We had accumulated many different pieces of furniture over the years, some from South Africa and others bought when we moved to Sydney. As a result we felt that our style appeared dated and our items did not necessarily fit well together to create a welcoming theme throughout the house.
Libby was wonderful in creating a warm and modern look and feel in our home. She suggested some significant changes with built-in joinery which we would never even have thought about and which have now made such a significant difference in two of our living areas. Libby brought in beautiful colours in all the rooms and everything just ended up working so well together. Myself and my husband work full time so I really enjoyed the fact that Libby could source the items for us, pass on trade discounts and style many of the areas of our home. She seemed to know exactly what I liked and I always felt totally comfortable discussing ideas with her.
I love walking into the house at the end of each day. Our home feels fresh and looks beautiful and we have received so many compliments on the end result. I would most definitely work with Libby again!

Libby helped us to absolutely transform our house into a modern, stylish, bright and fresh space. From paint selection, floor and window treatments, room layouts and final interior decoration, Libby understood our style and narrowed down the daunting range of options to the few that mattered. Every decision was therefore enjoyable and time-saving, allowing us to be part of the creative process.
Libby was a pleasure to work with as she was always friendly and prompt. Libby introduced us to excellent craftsmen and provided trade discounts on our project purchases. Our homes are precious spaces, to soothe and nurture us, and thanks to Libby's talent and attention to detail we now live in such a space: warm, functional, calming. Working with Libby was a wise investment in achieving an updated, harmonious style for our home.

We are really happy with our decision to have Libby help us establish our inner city apartment. From starting out as people that didn't think we'd ever use an interior designer, we are now converts and would happily recommend Libby.
Libby came up with a functional layout for our small space that we hadn't previously canvassed and that works really well for us. She was able to work with us to come up with suggestions and ultimately a design and colour palate and pieces that suit us, our budget and growing family.
Libby was practical, flexible and really easy to work with; there was no pretentiousness or pushiness. She not only has a great eye, she's also a great communicator, friendly and professional.
We are convinced the opportunity costs gained from having Libby recommend and source solutions and pieces for us (often at discounts) made the experience and investment both enjoyable and thoroughly worthwhile, emotionally and financially! We could have spend arduous weekends in 'homemaker centres' bickering and coming up with inferior solutions, but we are so glad we didn't. We now have a space we really enjoy.

We asked Libby to freshen up the living space in our Tempe home. She was great to work with, full of ideas and enthusiasm. She was also happy to come into our home at times that were convenient for us.
We love the changes she made and the items she brought in. She transformed our nice living space in to something that really stands out and works for us as a family. She has a great eye and approach and we have no hesitation in recommending her.
