PROJECTS

CLIENTS

  • Working within the confines of a heritage building, we needed a space to be used as a lunch/meeting area by day and a lounge bar by night. Our brief was to reflect the creative, fun and vibrant nature of our culture. Elissa impressed us with her ability to add value and work to a set budget. Not only did she design a stylish space that our staff and clients love, but she delivered it on brief, on time and on budget.

  • Working with Elissa for the renovation and redecoration of our Cremorne home was a wonderful experience. Her expert advice, creative input and positive energy was invaluable and she helped to make what would normally be a very stressful experience something fun and enjoyable.

    Elissa took the time to understand and interpret my tastes in colour and interior style and she prepared and recommended a colour palette for walls, floors and carpets that I absolutely loved from the start. Elissa also helped me to think outside the square by recommending paint treatments for my wooden floorboards and designs for cabinetry and wardrobes that I would not have known about or been bold enough to try. I was also able to tap into her vast network of furniture and textile suppliers as well as trades and craftsmen that we used extensively for our renovation.

    Elissa also has a wonderful talent and flair for design, styling and furniture layout and can make any seemingly ordinary room look like a feature page from an interiors magazine.

    I will without doubt call on Elissa to assist me in the second stage of our renovation and I look forward to working with her again.

  • Elissa and I joined forces to create a beautiful new home in St Ives. She has a natural eye for the principles of design and meets the brief outlined by the client with enthusiasm, passion and professionalism.

    Elissa’s passion for colour and style is reflected in the variety of schemes she designs. She always makes the tasks seem easy and the styling process a pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble and the end result has gone beyond the client’s expectations.

  • We were initially nervous about hiring a designer as weren’t sure what to expect. We spoke with several designers but we were won over by Elissa’s warmth, enthusiasm and how quickly she grasped what we wanted.

    We found Elissa thoughtful and respectful throughout the design process. She listened carefully and helped us put together the look that we wanted. I enjoyed her balance of enthusiasm and gentleness. It was wonderful to work with someone who cared as much (and more!) about how colour, design and story work together to create spaces we love to live in.

    Elissa allowed us to express ourselves in selecting the style and feel for each room while guiding us with her discerning and creative eye. Her dedication to delivering what we wanted and generosity of spirit are simply impressive!
