When a client is happy, I am delighted if they choose to share their opinions. My aim is to over-deliver on client expectations so I am always humbled with testimonials and referrals.


Here are some reviews from clients with whom I have worked. You are welcome to read the full text on my Professional Houzz Profile Page.

Penelope is awesome & I would highly recommend her to anyone. She definitely knows her stuff. I needed someone to give me advice (as) the amount of money I (had) wasted was ridiculous… but with a second eye & great advice I can now move forward. Don’t hesitae, call Penelope.

In the initial visit, Penelope spent time discussing our needs and lifestyle, and on her second visit brought samples for the kitchen and a comprehensive Interior Design Report. She also recommended tradespeople whom she knew delivered high quality results.

She made suggestions that were cost effective, and that I would not have thought of, while respecting our colour preferences and minimalist approach to decor. Thank you, Penelope.

As a Professional Singer-Entertainer, my house reflects the facets of my personality & career highlights. Apparently, this equated to a somewhat over-elaborate decor that begged a masterful touch. We found that in Penelope.
She has retained elements of my heritage & deftly blended fresh ideas to create a sensational home environment that we absolutely adore! We rate her with the highest recommendation possible & will be utilising her mastery again.

Penelope is a delight to work with and has a warm personality which she uses to great effect to guide and support choices, never imposing her own view but gradually guiding one towards the best scheme for the space. It was a great experience. Thanks Penelope!

Penelope quickly understood what I wanted and suggested ideas, surfaces, fabrics, and colours suitable for an adult space that’s shared with three energetic children. She also sourced a couple of retro pieces of furniture that are perfect feature pieces.

Our new space is a great blend of sophistication and fun with a mid-century modern and 60’s retro feel. My three kids were included in some of the discussions around their own spaces, which they really appreciated.

We are building a home in Hahndorf and need help in decorations and colour schemes. Penelope’s initial presentation was excellent and then the follow up was A1. Highest personal recommendation.
Malcolm Farmer

Home Owner

With a recommendation from a friend, we engaged Penelope to help us with colour, design, and layout. From the first meeting, we knew we could work with Penelope as she seemed to ‘get inside our heads’ in terms of bringing to life our vision.

Penelope is communicative, creative, and efficient. Her suggestions and mood boards helped us to ‘see’ what the results may be. She even suggested opening up a room with French doors and installation of sun tunnels in our dark hallway. The results are a cohesive yet eclectic home that represents what WE love, not simply the style and ‘trend’ suggestions of an interior designer. Penelope listened to what WE wanted and we are very happy with the results.
