Interior Decorating and Colour Consulting Testimonials

We are so grateful to you for creating for us the most beautiful home in which to live. Everywhere we look there is a something of beauty and fabulous design! Again in this renovation, as in the one you did for us at our previous St Ives home, you took the time to listen and really understand what it was we were hoping to create. And then, with a keen eye on the budget and with your seemingly infinite number of contacts, sources and ideas you delivered for us an end product that was well beyond our expectations. Thank you for always going above and beyond. You were there beside us throughout the entire renovation – from the initial planning stages, to the design of every room and every fixture and fitting, to negotiating with builders, to then sourcing the best product at the best price and ensuring everything was delivered on time and to specification. You always made yourself available to us – helping us navigate and resolve all the ups and downs associated with a major renovation. And you did all of this with infinite patience, pragmatism, understanding, warmth, expertise and good humour. You were an absolute delight and the greatest of pleasures to work with and not only helped us survive the stress of a major renovation but made it seem like a piece of cake! Thank you for that. Thank you also for redesigning what was a most unattractive 1970’s apartment and turning it into the most stunningly beautiful, fabulous home that we love!

The service and advice I received from Jennifer French was outstanding.  At short notice, she came to our newly renovated home and helped us with our colour scheme.  Jennifer’s colour recommendations for what would suit the property both inside and outside were adhered to as she took all factors into account.  She simplified our complex colour scheme and encouraged greater flow and continuity whilst maintaining the integrity of the property and highlighting its unique features.  Thanks to her professional approach and rigour she persuaded us to maintain some contrast as a means of enhancing the features of our restored Dairy House in Wahroonga, built in 1908.  We are very grateful and thankful for the time and attention to detail given towards our project.  We would strongly recommend Jennifer French and we would engage her in the future for further consultations.

I’ve spent many hours looking through house magazines and can pick out interiors that I like. But when my husband and I decided to knock down our old house and rebuild with Masterton Homes, it became a very daunting task to make colour selections for an entire house prior to any construction. From just our choice of brick, Jennifer was able to help us put together all exterior and interior colours that would compliment each other. I have no second thoughts about our colour choices now as the building begins. Jennifer has been able to take out much of the stress in our home building experience with her professional and refreshing approach and her ability to assess our tastes. And Jennifer’s next job for us is to advise on fabric for furnishings and general decorating!

Just a short note to thank you for giving our much loved old sofa a new lease of life. Your advice on the quality of fabric, colour and co-ordinates for the sofa beautifully complimented our casual relaxed family lifestyle as well as the excellent service you provided in making it all happen for us – we just love our “new” sofa!

Until we engaged the services of Inside Out Colour & Design, every aspect of our home improvement was “Work In Progress”. Thwarted by lack of time and imagination, Jennifer French has provided focus and her considerable style and talent in selecting our external colour scheme, modernising our décor and finishing rooms with tasteful soft furnishings. We have been impressed by the conscientious and creative approach of Inside Out Colour & Design and would highly recommend their services.

Jennifer helped us through every step of our renovation making the process so much easier. She has assisted in many areas such as selecting materials and colours for the kitchen, tiles, marbles, basins, tapware for the bathrooms, carpets, soft furnishings and new furniture for most of the house. She pulled all the strings together and made the house flow by working out a stunning colour scheme for the entire house inside and out. We had some pieces of furniture we had collected over the years that were very special to us. Jennifer worked around that. She assisted us in selecting new fabrics and finding tradespeople to repairs these pieces. Now they stand pride of place in our new sparkling, classic renovation. We are so thrilled with our new renovation and Jennifer has played an enormous part in this. Well done!!

Arlington Property Group is a development and construction firm involved in luxury medium density residential projects. The latest development is in Double Bay, Sydney. As a first project we asked Inside Out Colour and Design to come up with two separate conceptual tile and colour schemes for the houses. Jennifer offered a series of schemes for both houses exceeding expectations on service but especially on interpretation of our brief. It was obvious that Jennifer had put in extra time and effort to understand the brief/s and us as clients. In turn we asked Jennifer to apply the colour schemes to architectural plans (i.e. cabinetry, feature walls, exterior feature walls) and also to source coordinating carpet and timber for one of the houses as a second phase. Our experience has been that Jennifer is flexible and dedicated. Her greatest strength is to understand clients and their brief with an ability to work across styles.

With a busy job, an active family and sporting commitments, I found it very difficult to find the time to finish decorating our home. I was also wary of making costly mistakes in choosing the wrong colours, furniture, etc. I had a good idea of what I liked and needed, however wanted a professional hand to guide me. A friend, who was a very satisfied client of Inside Out, recommended I contact Jennifer and I’m so glad she did. Jennifer quickly understood where we needed help and went from there. All I had to do was explain colours and styles I liked and what was needed and then make the final choices when she brought fabric, paint colours, furniture suggestions, etc to our home. Once the decisions were made and measurements taken, a few months later the painting was done, new curtains hung, cushions plumped, furniture and rugs installed and the finished rooms were a source of delight and comfort. Whether it’s finishing off a room or doing a whole renovation, Jennifer is the design professional you need to help get your home right the first time.

B Williams, Lindfield


We are very happy indeed with the excellent advice and service Jennifer and her team provided for our interior “freshen up”. Jennifer was very sympathetic in choosing fabrics and finishes to complement our existing personal “treasures” and lifestyle, resulting in an original and comfortable interior. Jennifer’s creative flair introduced us to ideas we may not have previously tried and we are thrilled with the final result.

J & J Culvenor, Roseville


Everything that you have provided is excellent and only yesterday I was asked about the windows and the colours and I was able to go straight to your info. So thank you for making this process much easier!

J Ferguson, West Pennant Hills


As a pregnant working mother, Jennifer saved me countless hours of searching for paint colours, fabrics and furnishings, etc to improve our home. We were so happy with her friendly approach and appreciated that her recommendations suited our taste and budget.

R and N Stephens, Lindfield


We feel so at home here, surrounded by our (new) beautiful rooms, a testimony to your skill and sensitivity. Thank you for making it all such a joy to accomplish. And easy. And fun!

C and D Martin Murphy, West Pymble


Thank you just doesn’t describe or begin to describe, how grateful we are for ALL that you have done for us over this past year. What you have created in the transformation of our home is beyond anything we could have imagined. Everywhere we look we see beauty, harmony, warmth, calmness, balance and “completeness”. Your amazing and insightful gift of being able to “know” what we want even when we can’t always find the words or can picture it ourselves is reflected in the way our home now feels like a “perfect fit” for us. We have been overwhelmed by your commitment and effort and time given, by your professionalism and by your exceptional expertise. In every way, you went above and beyond.

M and C Williams, St Ives


Trying to get everything to work together AND appeal to two individual tastes is something Jennifer excelled at. Throw in a small space and a hard brief, Jennifer has truly amazed us. From picking options to advice on layout, Jennifer’s clear communication not only made deciding easy, but exciting and fun. We would definitely recommend her services. All in all, 5 stars out of 5.
