Her attention to detail is second to none!

We broke the record for the highest selling house in the street with her help, would highly recommend!


Federation Makeover

Once again Michelle has delivered . This is the second time we have used  Michelle's services. We purchased a federation style home that needed refreshing and had no idea where to start. Michelle was able to provide prompt, detailed advice from paint to furniture and rugs. This was done all from photographs. Quick, simple and easy! Nothing was too difficult or any trouble, she genuinely loves her work and I can call and her advice as we move through the project. W are so excited to start the transformation.

We had a large project of selecting external colour schemes for a development of 12 properties, but we could not do a blanket colour for all, so we had to called in an expert!

Michelle was amazing. Job was done super fast and there was nothing I needed to change. I would no hesitation in recommending Michelle.

   We had a huge project and didn't know where to start. Michelle came to the rescue and helped with wall paint colour, flooring and window dressing and that was just the start. She created mood boards for each room which helped us so much when shopping for our home.  Would highly recommend. Happy customers.
