We are 10

That’s right, Inside Out Colour and Design is 10 years old this month. I can’t believe it. Sometimes I feel like I’m jut beginning and other times I feel like I’ve been helping homeowners create their beautiful homes forever.


So how did Inside Out Colour and Design come about? Well, it started about 12 years ago when we returned to Australia after living for 6 years overseas. We were about to embark on our first joint home ownership. You see I had already owned 3 homes and my husband had an apartment before we married. Not long after our wedding we moved overseas and lived in provided or rented accommodation.

I had always loved putting my stamp on my houses and the homes we lived in overseas. It was so important to quickly make the house we were in feel like it was ours and we were comfortable. So when we returned to Australia I saw an advertisement for a five week course titled “Style At Home.” It was designed to assist the homeowner style and decorate their own home. I enrolled and absolutely loved it. At the end of the five weeks, we were offered a taste of the Diploma Course.

passion career

With my daughter about to start pre-school two days a week and my desire to do some sort of work, but not go back to full time corporate stuff, I wondered if Interior Decorating could be my future. A year later, I had completed Certificate III in Colour and Design. I started working part time as a Design Consultant at Amber Tiles and started Inside Out Colour and Design providing design consultations to the tile clients. At the same time I continued my studies and graduated a year later with a Diploma in Interior Styling and a Diploma in Colour Consulting.


It’s been so much fun over the last ten years, it has never seemed liked work. Inside Out Colour and Design has been my baby and I have built it from nothing. It’s taken alot of hard work and many hours of dreaming and scheming and slogging but I’ve loved every minute.

I’ve had some fabulous clients with many of them becoming friends and now I’m helping many in their second homes. It’s been a pleasure to assist my clients create a real home, a home for the family and the pets to enjoy and one which oozes their own personality and style.
