Meet Michelle

I am a mum, a wife, a decorator/stylist, a writer and an absolute nutcase at times, who tries not to take themselves or life too seriously.

Hi my name’s Michelle, but my friends call me Canny.

.

I am a mum, a wife, a decorator/stylist, a writer and an absolute nutcase at times, who tries not to take themselves or life too seriously.

.

I believe that a home is an evolving space as life changes, but it should always remain core to who you are and what you love. My clients are the heart and soul of their spaces and I believe their homes should be a reflection of this.

.

I have always had a passion for all things interior and after having my son I realised it was time to pursue what I love most, creating beautiful spaces through decorating and styling and helping people understand their individual style.

.

Many people view a house as a structure with four walls and a roof and don’t place emphasis on the inside, forgetting that it’s the interior style that transforms the mere structure of a house into a home.

.

Our homes are where memories are created, so I believe they should be a place filled with the things we love and enjoy, not just a structure we live in.

.

I have studied design and colour, spent hours poring over home décor and lifestyle magazines, become a Pinterest addict and completed two renovations with my husband (one whilst 9 months pregnant, which certainly put a test on the marriage! 😉

.

One of my favourite quotes and the ethos of my business is, “your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.” – Nate Berkus, Interior Designer.

.

A lot of people live in spaces they aren’t happy with for many reasons; they don’t have the time or money to change things, have no idea where to start or spend hour’s searching for inspiration only to end up feeling completely overwhelmed!

.

This is where I come in. I take the stress out of interior decorating by creating practical and beautiful spaces that reflect who you are and the lifestyle you hold dear.

.

I love providing inspiration and offering people tips on how to create the perfect space to suit their budget and lifestyle.

.

In my work, I source a lot of pieces from local businesses and often feature these in my blog because I love supporting small business and the unique products they offer.

.

I’m a Nelson Bay based gal, married to a Scotsman called Ric and together we have an energiser bunny of a son called Gus.

.

I have a passion for travel, new adventures and finding inspiration in the everyday. I love being outdoors so anywhere there is a beach, nature…(or a cheeky visit to an homewares store) you will find me. 🙂

.

I am so excited to be creating spaces that are beautiful, practical and most of all speak to those that live in them.

.

Let’s work together to transform your house into a space you’re proud to call home.
