INDULGE IN LUST HAVES

3 EASY STEPS

Creativity, flexibility and practicality are the driving principles that guide every CSY interior styling venture. I bring the passion and skills of my cross-disciplinary career in fashion and personal styling to my practice, enabling me to intuitively design spaces that reflect the lifestyles and aspirations of their owners. 

I am inspired by a philosophy of ‘emotional design’ that supports an honest and open connection with clients. This enables me to capture their personality and create both spirited and comfortable homes that are sanctuaries, where cherished pieces and fresh design amalgamate to craft uniquely personal residences, plus striking work places that enrich productivity and express the elemental principles of a company. 

Each of my interior projects are diversely unique, yet all are achieved by applying the CSY credo: Slashing, Shopping and Styling. In three easy steps I can refresh a room, household or workplace, in turn enhancing its functionality whilst updating its look without the headache or time delays of an invasive renovation or custom-built fit-out. Rethinking room utilisation and spatial flow are my particular areas of expertise. I determine which key pieces should stay, purchase new furniture and decorative items and merge the new with existing favourites. 

All CSY interior projects are deeply grounded in an understanding of the user’s experience so my newly styled environments continue to be relevant over time.

Channel the blitz spirit

Our first consultation commences within the client’s residence or workplace to determine which existing furniture, objects and artwork to keep and which items to re-sell, donate or discard. After discussing the desired function and look for the space/s, I’ll measure up the area/s and offer my interior solutions. Lastly, the overall budget and preferred time-frame is discussed.

Within a week client will receive a Client Login to access their customised Interior Style File. It includes a moodboard incorporating a colour palette for walls, floors (if carpeting) plus suggestions for furniture, lighting, decorative objects and artwork for discussion. Naturally, they will express a residential client’s personality or commercial client’s business ethos, complimenting existing pieces and suiting the scale and function of their future setting.

Once a client approves of final changes to the moodboard, determining the style of furniture (and quantity of pieces), plus lighting and decorative objects desired, I scout interior furnishing stores (both online and physically) to source those that suit the desired aesthetic and fit within the allocated budget. This initial scouting takes approximately two hours. The complete shopping list and supplier details are submitted to client’s for editing and approval.

When we are happy and the list is finalised, it’s then time to shop together, where client’s can make the final decisions regarding finishes on furniture and tonal and textural tweaks on fabrics cushions, rugs etc. All decorative objects (and artworks if desired) are also purchased during this stage. This process usually takes approximately three to four hours.
