"We employed Carmen to help us decide what colours to paint the outside of our 1920s Californian Bungalow, and, boy, was she helpful! Carmen helped us come to a decision that made us both happy, was within our budget, and put us in touch with terrific tradespeople. "
"Carmen's eye for what would match and compliment my starting pieces was unparalleled. Working with me, Carmen was simply brilliant and as for the end result what can I say other than if you want your home to have the WOW factor then you need Carmen Parker Styling !"
"Carmen has an amazing knack for choosing just the right tone, shade and colour for a space. Her process is organised and efficient and she makes everyone feel very comfortable. Carmen knows how to engage all parties and work together for a great result. I highly recommend Carmen and will certainly use her services again when we get around to renovating our bathrooms!"
FACE TO FACE, PERSONALISED DESIGN SERVICES
As a colour consultant and interior stylist, my scope of services range from styling one room to an entire house. I will work with you to achieve the look you desire, from concept development, to sourcing of furnishings to execution of layout and final installation of all components of the design plan. The level of my involvement is your choice – from concept to completion or perhaps you only need assistance with some elements of the design plan.
As a colour specialist, I understand how to use colour to create the right mood for all the different spaces in your home.
Choices are overwhelming. With expertise in both interior and exterior paint selection, as well as wallpaper supply, I can provide the advice you need to confidently choose the right colour scheme for your home, inside and out. I can also assist you with colour scheme development when renovating your kitchen or bathroom in choosing tiles, bench tops, flooring or cupboards.
The fees for a colour consultation start at $285 for interior paint selections, which includes on-site consultation, A4 colour cards and specification sheets for your painter. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project and receive a quote for your project.
My approach to design is a stylish yet practical one, and we will work closely together to create living spaces that reflect your tastes and lifestyle. Whether it is working with your existing furniture, soft furnishings and artwork, or helping you select and source new or unique pieces, I will help you create functional spaces that you will love living in.
After an initial consultation to understand your needs, I will develop a range of options, including a choice of colour schemes, furniture styles and room layouts. Once a look and feel is agreed, I can advise on a selection of specific pieces and source them on your behalf using my trade relationships and industry contacts to attain attractive prices generally not available to the public.
Fees for an interior styling project can be discussed on a project by project basis. Please feel free to contact me to receive an estimate of fees for your project.
One of the advantages of employing an interior decorator is their product knowledge (save you the running around) and their relationships with suppliers, which can often mean below retail prices on most goods. I am able to source a range of products from these trade suppliers, passing discounts on to my clients. Whether it is furniture, artwork, wallpaper, floor coverings, lighting or other fixtures and fittings, I will find the right pieces for your home, lifestyle and budget.
