With a career that started in London and became established in America (Connecticut and Massachusetts) Bettina moved to Melbourne after falling in love with the city over several years of travelling back and forth. Bettina’s knowledge is informed by 20 years of experience of high-end residential interior architecture, design, decoration and styling.
The importance of reflecting the clients’ own history, values and desired aspirations for their home informs a layered aesthetic that results in spaces that are intrinsically personal and meaningful. Projects are dynamic and start with maximising the functionality of the property while the character and narrative of its look and feel are articulated.
With a complete a la carte list of design and decoration services, from renovation design to final styling, Bettina’s personable ‘can do’ attitude is apparent in the client loyalty and reputation she has built throughout her professional career. “I am just as in love with the accomplishment of having to be creative on a modest budget as I am with the freedoms of some of my grander work.” On larger scale residences (550sqm to 1,000sqm) Bettina usually works with the clients’ architect with responsibilities for providing the interior finish, furnishings and decorative elements. As the interior designer for an award-winning architectural firm for eleven years she understands the high level of detail and attention required in every aspect of new home builds and renovations.
With an ever-growing network of artisans and trades, Bettina offers a range of interior design and decoration services for home refurbishments and renovations. — NCIDQ certified interior designer since 2011 – Industry recognised board examination recognising interior design skills and proficiency in public health, safety and welfare standards throughout the USA.
