Caravan Love

A huge thank you to you Michelle for helping make a retirement dream come true. To say the least when the colours were given to us for choices for our new caravan I was overwhelmed. I had no choice but to reach out to Michelle as  we have heard from previous clients that she was the best in the business and sure knows her trade. Michelle was amazing, met me straight away and listened to what my ideas were but delicately suggested some slight changes which made practical sense and improved the final outcome. The result was incredible. She actually helped make such a small space feel so much more spacious . We love the colour selections as they will not date quickly and we don't feel closed in . Her eye to detail is impeccable. Her work ethic outstanding. I have no hesitation in recommending De Novo Concepts.  Michelle you can accomplish any task. You simply have the knack. - Sharon Evans

Kitchen Makeover

"I can recommend Michelle from De Novo Concepts to help people bring disparate ideas together into a consolidated plan for their home layout and decor. She combines an original approach, the latest trends, and fresh ideas with an ability to readily understand requirements to compile a comprehensive brief. She is friendly and enthusiastic, making the project an enjoyable experience." Robert and Stephanie Grant

Kitchen Reno

 We have been guided by Michelle over 20 years and in that time,  ideas are fresh and up to date with what is happening with trends. Just recently we have installed a new kitchen.  Rang Michelle and within 30 minutes she had it sorted.  We had floor tiles we needed to keep and everything tied in nicely.  Her eye to detail is excellent and never seems flustered. She listens to what YOU want and plans are made around that.  Things you have not thought of are brought  up and you seem to walk away looking at a bigger picture as you have not thought of these things. Our new kitchen is a real working piece for us and the design and colour lends itself to blend throughout the rest of the home.  Our vacant, un-used spaces are now workable spaces and well utilised.If you need some fresh ideas - give Michelle a call..............she is a shining light for all jobs.  Rhonda & Barry McNally
