Need to have your new-build home decorated or existing interior given a refresh? My end-to-end service has you covered. I take care of everything for you from start to finish to completely re-design your space.
From consult to quote, sourcing products to styling them in your space, this service takes the hard work out of the equation for you. It’s easy and stress-free. Be completely involved in the journey, or take a back seat and let me drive the decorating decisions on your behalf. I’ll work to accommodate you.
Every client is different, and I’ve worked with all budgets, styles and suburbs. From one-bedroom homes in South Yarra, to family homes in Bentleigh, right up to $3 million homes in Park Orchards; I’ve decorated most of Melbourne.
How The Service Works
We’ll start with a free phone consultation to get an idea of how I can help. You then have the option to book an in-home consultation, which lasts up to 90 minutes. This is an opportunity to ask me anything and everything you wish to.
You’re welcome to use our consult time to get the advice you need and end things there. But if you want me to work on a design scheme for your home, we move on to the next step.
After our meeting, I’ll be able to provide you with an idea of overall costs. This is based on how many hours I believe I’ll work on your project, and how much I think you’ll spend on decor and furniture.
If you’re happy with the estimate, we take a deposit and get to work. Soon after, I will present you with a fully realised concept for your space including layout options, mood boards, samples of fabrics, tiles, and paint colours and inspirational imagery to show you what your home could look like in the near future. We work together to get the concept spot-on. This is our blueprint for how to bring your home to the next level and make it everything you dreamed it could be.
Once you approve the concept, I’ll start specifying products for your home. This is the point in the process where decisions need to be made. You’ll receive a full product spec sheet per room with images, costs and dimensions of each item. Once you approve the products, we’ll invoice you and organise ordering and delivery with our suppliers.
Once all of the products are paid for and delivered to your home, I’ll come and style the rooms so they reach their full design potential. Too easy!
What Makes TLC Interiors Different
There are a number of things which set me apart from other decorators and interior designers in Melbourne. Here are just a few of the perks of working with me to redesign your space:
1. Finding Your Style
I’m not here to push my taste onto you. I discover a style you truly love and work to have your home reach its full potential. That’s why we have two consultations (phone and in person), before presenting you with a concept for your approval.
2. Trade Networks
Need new carpet, updated window fashions, or some art hung? We don’t pretend to be experts at everything, but we do work with them. Let us connect you with our trusted network of professionals who’ll work alongside us to ensure the home’s concept is realised.
3. Cost Transparency
I’m really honest about how my pricing is structured, how many hours I work on your project, and what you can expect to spend.
Up front, you will have an estimate of what you should expect to pay for my services. If it looks like we might need more time than initially thought, I’ll let you know in advance and we can discuss how to proceed.
My fees are (including GST):
- Phone consultation: Free
- In-home consultation: $275
- Hourly Design Fee: $135
4. Savings on Product
I have fantastic relationships with my suppliers. Not only do you get unique pieces for your home that you won’t see in stores, but I’m able to pass product savings to you.
Any trade discounts from suppliers are shared between you and I right down the middle. You reap 50% of the savings, and so do I.
Frequently Asked Questions
We are based in Melbourne Victoria but can service just about anywhere in Australia. Keep in mind additional travel fees may apply depending on your location. We can discuss this with you during our initial phone call.
Every interior designer and decorator is different, but it’s common practice to pass on a portion of trade discounts to clients. I pass on 50% of the discount I receive, so we both win.

It varies by the complexity of your project, but 12 weeks is a good rough estimate for a family home. If you’re having work done like new floors or window treatments, expect to spend longer working with me. If we’re just updating one room, it will be much shorter.
That’s a really difficult question to give a standard answer to since there are a lot of variables that go into how much it costs to decorate a room. Some variables to consider: the styles you like (some styles tend to call for more expensive products), the size of the room, whether you have any furniture or decor you can incorporate into the new room and whether you need work done like hanging new window treatments. We can give you an estimate after your consultation.
