Taylor’s favourite style of design is Scandinavian interiors with its homely and simplistic feel. She brings elegance and style into every renovation project. She guides the clients through the Colour Consultation and product selection process to ensure they make the right choices for their lifestyle and budget.

Taylor has seen a continued preference for timeless classics such as traditional white on white, and modern black and white, as well as grey tones. Many clients have added a luxury element to their renovations with cabinetry handles, tapware and lights in gold, or brush nickel finishes.

Taylor plays a vital role in creating functional and stylish living spaces for our clients. A service not offered by many suppliers or builders.

We’re extremely proud and lucky to have Taylor providing a personalised and specialist service for our clients.
