About Me

Chris Carroll The Life Creative

Interior Stylist and Blogger (and Loving it)

Truth be told, I wear a lot of creative hats. But I tend to split my time between the interior design side of the TLC biz, and writing the TLC blog; which is where I share all of my home style tips, inspiration and best buys with you.

I figure if you can’t afford to have me come into your home to make it amazing, at least you can follow along on the blog and build the confidence to decorate your space yourself.

My motto when it comes to decorating is that great design is for everyone. It doesn’t matter your budget, I know you can achieve a phenomenal home – and I’m going to help you do it!

I moved from Sydney to Melbourne a few years back and have been running the interior design business down here with great success. For clients outside of Melbs, I’ve started an online decorating service so you can get all of my TLC designer magic in your home even if you’re not in Victoria (I won’t hold it against you!) 😉

Outside of operating the design business and writing the blog, I’m also a published author and presenter. My book, Sydney Precincts, was published back in 2016 and is a collection of the best places to eat, drink and shop in Sydney.

I’ve not only appeared in publications like Inside Out and Home Beautiful, but I’ve presented on Channel 7’s The Morning Show and Sunrise, and on Sky News Australia’s Real Estate program. Live TV is pretty exciting and I’ve gotta admit it’s incredibly fun.

I also write as a style expert for realestate.com.au. Add to that my presenting and MC work with Metricon Homes. Oh, and I’m also a style partner of Lorraine Lea, styling product campaigns for their website and social media channels.

In case the picture hasn’t become clear by now; I’m absolutely obsessed with interiors and decorating. I live and breathe it 24/7. There’s not a homewares brand I don’t already know about or a trend I haven’t already gotten across.

My Skimp and Splurge Approach to Design

One of the things that sets me apart, I think, is my love of mixing skimp and splurge decor. I’m all about giving clients (and blog readers) as much bang for their buck as possible.

I hate the idea that design is ‘exclusive’, or that a gorgeous home has to be expensive or designer. I mix the investment pieces with the cheap and cheerful most of the time. And I reckon it’s a winning approach to achieve an awesome interior.

You’ll also be invited to my private Facebook group where you can share your love for decorating with other members, and get access to design advice directly from me on the daily.

TLC Interiors is all about an amazing home made easy, and I hope I can help make your design dreams a reality!
