About Us

Having been work colleagues, friends and styling properties together for the past 9 years, we thought it was time to start our own company, so Partners in Design was born. 

We are a boutique company who services the residential property market and corporate sectors by offering property styling, full fitouts and rental furnishings.

Our broad business experience, training & passion means we understand buying and selling properties and the ins and outs of commercial accommodation – not just styling. Our skills complement the delivery of on time and warm interiors.  Our clients are important to us so we strive to offer the best in customer service and advice.

We love what we do so while we work hard, we also bring with us a smile and a joy that only comes with doing something you love.

Partners in Design… our specialty is making properties feel like home.

We actually decided to accept a pre-auction offer yesterday! So we’re all done!

The consistent feedback was that the house was presented very well, so thank you. You have an incredible eye for style – after just one short consultation you knew exactly how to style our house. Our purple cupboards look right for the first time thanks to your cushions and the nursery is very sophisticated which helps the buyer imagine it beyond a kid’s room.

Donna & Wendy from Partners in Design have been fantastic in delivering a professional service for my clients. The work they do stands out compared to other stylists that I have used, they really have the eye for design and can transform properties making them easier for me to sell and maximising the sale price. These ladies are very passionate about what they do and this shines through in their work. Whether they are working on a full fit out or with existing décor they are able to provide a wonderful result each time. Their communication skills with not only myself but with my clients is always excellent.


– Brooke | Property Consultant


Right from the beginning we were impressed with Donna & Wendy’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanour when we engaged them for my property fit out.

Their knowledge on the short stay industry was an added bonus in helping select the right furniture for our property & the market. They covered off everything from the planning, purchasing, unpacking & setting up of everything from the couch right down to the teaspoons. The end result was a modern, spacious, local feel and it was completed with speed and always in consultation.

Guests who visit are in awe of our beautifully styled property. I would not hesitate in recommending these ladies to anyone looking for help with the design & fit of their home.

Thank you

– John & Vicki


Thank you Wendy & Donna for designing the fitout of my recently renovated home.

You managed to make a tight space look fabulous with your choice of furniture & styling items throughout.

Your great communication, listening and organisational skills kept everything on time and on budget.

If I am ever in the position to setup another home I would not hesitate in calling on your skills & service again.

Thank you

– John
