What a dream to be able to be able to make a beautiful little sanctuary for my beloved new baby girl! I started with a Cole & Sone wallpaper that I'd seen a while back and fallen in love with. I suppose it's very fitting, and romantic, that my tiny moon child would find peace in a room full o...

What struck me most about this project was something that I noticed the first time I set foot on the property. From the outside, the big family home in a rambling garden was quite ordinary (and was in serious need of a paint job) but the inside was full of colour, style and distinctly personalised e...

We completely overhauled the offices of this media research company! It was great to be able to work with the building owner for the renovation and then with the company director when it came to furniture, so we could provide a real full service. Thanks C & S for a wonderful opportunity… The ma...

I stumbled across this Parkview property because a friend of a friend was looking to sell, and my husband and I had no intention of buying anything, especially not a 1000 squares of jungle to rival Ms Haversham’s…  What we discovered was a rabbit warren full of treasures, wrapped up inside a tangle...

This home is a real Mid-Century Modern gem, and proved to be a fun and interesting project in an unassuming location. With the basic palette of walnut stained timber wet off against white walls throughout, I was invited to bring in some colour and some quirk. As is often the case, this job unfurl...

Kitchen and Bathrooms. Kitchen cupboards and BIC's throughout were sprayed white so as to slot neatly into our new palette. Steel handles powder coated white worked perfectly against the all-white cabinetry. We also powder coated all bathroom accessories in guest bathrooms white so as to make eve...

This has been one of my personal bests! Hidden on a sneaky side road in Westcliff, is a secret garden to rival Mrs. Havershams! The house, one of the original farmhouses of the area, has undergone various renovations over the years but was very much in need of an overhaul to suit my client's livi...

I thank the glorious God’s of grooviness that this project came my way! Bret Dugmore’s launched the first Mr Vinyl store in 44 Stanley, this April and has already garnered much attention. Let’s conceptualize The Record Store. One pictures piles of dusty covers and crates loaded to the brim with rare...

Minimalist My client’s brief began with an iconic photograph of Steve Jobs sitting on his living room floor with nothing but a turntable, and we knew this would be a special project. This job was inspirational and refreshing, it was basically an opportunity to scrub clean the beautiful bones of a b...

2017 Was indeed a year of change - one such change was in the Metaphor studio space. We have been lucky to have shared a happy home in 44 Stanley with an interesting selection of creatives and intellectuals.  This year has brought us new blood - praekelt.org swept in to the mix, bringing good-doing ...
