Working with Libby Winberg Interiors over the last 12months took our home to a completely new level of style, one that is worthy of an interior design magazine.
Libby has a magical and effortless way of capturing all of our [crazy] ideas, harnessing differing styles and shaping it into all into a thoughtfully sophisticated and practical design. The best thing ever, we think Libby made our home into the most comfortable home in the world! We could not recommend Libby enough.

Libby was invaluable during the renovation of our home – her product knowledge and eye for detail has led to the finished product reflecting the ideas I had in my head at the start of the process. From paint colours to tile combinations, window treatments to rugs and everything in between, Libby’s suggestions always met the brief and her relationship with suppliers meant the process was very smooth. I will not hesitate to contact Libby again in the future when I have new projects!
Karen + Shaun - Five Dock
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.
Alice & Jem - Wollstonecraft
Libby worked with us on a fairly extensive renovation over a period of months. The brief I gave her was not easy; can you meld my Scottish background with some gothic type styles but not have the place look like a freak show?
She got it instantly. I’m still amazed by that. Everything she showed me was spot on and consequently my husband and I trusted her impliclity to completely change the inside and outside of our home – which she did and we love it.
Libby was so patient with me; even when I asked ‘does it come in black?’ for the 50th time.
We would not hesitate to work with Libby again or to recommend her to anyone; she truly has a gift.

Libby was able to design so cleverly and beautifully within my budget.
All her handpicked and trusted trades were on time and worked efficiently, often around a house full of people working from home, but they did a great job at all times. Libby managed all of them professionally, so I did not have to.
I had never used an interior designer before, and was just blown away at the incredible ideas, beautiful spaces and smart designs and layouts she created all around the house.
My three teenagers and I could not have imagined such a great result for my home without Libby’s genius.
Libby was able to transform my humble home into a beautiful, light, and sumptuous living space which has added significant value and has made a wonderful place to live for years to come.
I highly recommend Libby Winberg Interiors for anyone thinking about remodelling, renovating, or rebuilding – she is the best.
Matt - Hunters Hill
Libby has worked with us for over 12 months doing a major ‘refreshment’ on a Victorian house that has been much loved and lived in over the years. Libby was able to quickly identify proposed changes to formal living areas and bedrooms and gave us clear options and a plan for much needed uplifting. We now have two very stylish rooms for entertaining and using everyday – new floor coverings, blinds, furniture and resolving a rising damp problem that has challenged us over the years.
Libby ran a tight project, was able to engage sub-contractors efficiently and without any pain on our part, problem solve and provide options that we could play with. She is easy to work with and very prompt to any need or problem if one came up. It was so good in fact, that we ended up putting in new sliding doors to the outdoor area – they are sensational. Libby sourced the work, engaged an excellent builder and the doors were in place with little disruption.
Libby has a good feel for and expertise with older houses (and their problems) and modern solutions to functional fit without losing the beauty of age.
I would be happy to recommend Libby’s interior design work to anyone considering uplift and style.
Catherine & Ian - Petersham
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.
Leigh & Terence - Concord West
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.
Louise - Haberfield
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!
Valley & Adam — Haberfield
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.
Tas & Ahmed - Harrington Park
We are so thankful that we engaged Libby to manage our renovation project. After an initial consultation and a couple of catch ups on our vision, likes, dislikes and must haves, Libby very quickly came up with a concise presentation and build designs that captured all of our ideas whilst adding her own signature flare.
What we found most useful was the hours of leg work (and arguments!) she saved us. Her range of options were always considered from both a design and a budget perspective. Before we knew it, she had assembled her team, the re-build had commenced and within couple of months were complete.
Our renovation included a new study, dining, kitchen and laundry as well as new floors and back doors. Being a federation semi-detached, our build had a number of unusual hick-ups, but through thoughtful consideration and discussions, they were all overcome.
From the beautiful joinery that ads so much storage and symmetry, to the colour choices and openness that create a lovely sense of space, we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Thanks again Libby.
Kristen & Neil - Haberfield
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!
Marlise - St Ives
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.
Irina & Ken - Marrickville
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.
