Marina insisted on spending some important ‘quality’ time with me at the beginning of our project, where she thoroughly investigated our true style and what we were trying to achieve. Marina has incredible skill at really understanding each client’s own personal style, while at the same time encouraging people to push the boundaries of their own thinking. After quickly realising that Marina fully respected and understood our style, we bravely and confidently let Marina’s true artistic talent shine, and we are so glad we did. She introduced me to so many exciting and beautiful fabrics and furniture pieces. Helping to guide me, but never pushing too hard in any particular way. By the end, I was more than happy to hand over complete control to Marina for the choice of our finishing touches. Her choices were unique and quirky – items that were full of surprise, yet each chosen with specific reference to our home.
I have little doubt that we would not have achieved our beautiful final result without Marina’s services. I would not hesitate to recommend Marina to anyone needing a little help with their interior styling. Her fees are more than reasonable for the incredible value-add that she provides, and of course her ability to source many items at wholesale rates means she is able to source items much cheaper than clients could themselves achieve. Marina always made sure that the process was fun and enjoyable along the way, even as she was doing the hard yards behind the scenes. The one standout quality of Marina is her supreme integrity. She followed through on every one of her promises, and she was there every step of the way with any supplier hiccups/product issues. She is also extremely efficient, professional, and reliable. She efficiently managed the complex lead times, planning and co-ordinated delivery of all our items, and she personally unpacked and styled our home with meticulous effort (even ironing our sheets!) so that all we had to do was enjoy it all.
I contacted Marina for help with bringing over a large amount of furniture from my previous French inspired home to my new Queenslander home. I had had consultations with many other interior designers but no one was able to fulfil the brief, then I found Marina and knew I had found the interior designer to transform my home. After consultation with Marina, she provided a detailed and beautiful collaboration of mood boards that hit the brief perfectly. She took the time to listen to my wants and needs and create the rooms specifically around these ideas.
Marina work tirelessly to make our house a “home” and recycled as much of our furniture as possible which we were thrilled about. The end result was breathtaking. Marina and her team had transformed our home and on return from an overseas holiday, we were blown away with the overall results
I would highly recommend Marina if you are after someone who is passionate, true and dedicated. Marina will find the heart and soul of you and your family and replicate it in your home.
It had never occurred to me to work with an interior designer before, but within 20 minutes of entering our house, Marina had transformed 2 rooms simply through moving and re-positioning existing furniture. Whilst advising on furniture and fabrics to update our living areas, Marina managed to engage my husband in the process as well, getting him on board with the selection and decision making which was quite a feat! Marina has been incredibly patient working with us as we changed our minds and asked to see more samples in different price ranges. Her ability to provide recommendations that were in line with what we liked yet added something completely new to our house was amazing. Marina is a talented individual, and a natural at interior design – we loved having in our home, not only because of the transformations she has been able to make, but because of her personal, practical and fun approach!
We engaged Marina to renovate all of our living areas to reflect our desire for a warm and practical home for our young family with a focus on functionality and practicality. Marina worked tirelessly to fully understand our brief and to deliver a range of high quality products for our home. Marina’s natural talent, flair for styling, attention to detail and commitment to the project was exceptional. Marina was always easily contactable and responded to our questions/requests diligently and promptly. Marina was responsive to our needs and worked within our budget. She was a delight to work with. We cannot recommend Marina highly enough for your next project.
