After completing an honours degree in Marketing & Communications Managment at Massey University, I worked in fashion and advertising for 15 years. Following the arrival of my daughters I looked for a change in direction that would provide a creative outlet. This lead to me studying Interior Design through the NZ Institute of Interior Design. Throughout all of this time my husband Matt and I have bought and sold many properties in Wellington and Auckland, renovating, decorating then moving on.
Our previous home featured in Oct '13 NZ House & Garden Magazine as well as the best selling interiors book "Rooms to Love". Recently I was lucky enough to win the Dulux Be Inspired competition for our bedroom & balcony makeover which was published in the Dec '15 issue of HZ House & Garden. Our current home is featured in the March '16 issue of Your Home & Garden. I have a fun attitude when it comes to design, I like to mix and match different styles and am happy to work with any budget. I love designing spaces for families, that they will love to live in.
We are now settled on the Kapiti Coast and I am so grateful to be doing what I love. Dress My Nest comes about from my love of property and my love of design. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you, and helping you achieve a beautiful space - whether it be so you can achieve the best price for your house or create the best home for yourself.
