An Interior Designer in Adelaide who believes you should love where you live... and live with what you love

Hi, I'm Penelope Herbert, an Adelaide interior designer who loves elegant rooms with luxe details... however, I also love unexpected twists, colour & textural surprises. Interiors are not supposed to be perfect... just perfect for YOU.


Being invited into someone’s home is a very personal and humbling experience… I don’t take it lightly. I know you’re looking for an interior designer in Adelaide who will respect your home and the things you love. In partnership with you, we will explore your lifestyle and the things that matter to you most. Because these have an impact on how you view and use your home. It’s not all about fluffing pillows and arranging throws (although decorating is hugely fun).


It’s my pleasure to design beautiful, functional, and comfortable spaces through thoughtful planning for lasting impact on every interior room and outdoor living space. But if you also want to push some design boundaries then let’s talk. I don’t mind creating bold and WOW interiors as well as modern and classic designs.


However, don’t just take my word for it; you’re welcome to read testimonials from some of my valued clients.


Whether you are building, renovating, extending or selling, Plush Design Interiors will guide you to make the right decisions to save your time, your money… and your sanity. Together, we’ll create a home you’ll love to live in.


A home shouldn't be perfect - your beautiful home can be perfectly imperfect, comfortably liveable, stylishly presented, and enjoyably functional. It's important to me that I work with you to design spaces that reflect your loves, lifestyle, travels, and personality.


I create rooms that work in harmony with you and your family. You will love the practical and stylish solutions I provide whether you are staying or selling.


  • busy professionals who love a beautifully presented home but are time poor
  • newly-weds who have purchased their first home together and need ideas and plans
  • parents of young children who need child-proof style
  • parents of teenagers who crave more room for relaxation and privacy
  • renovation show addicts with tons of ideas but no idea where to start
  • empty-nesters who have extra rooms to utilise, or an Air B’n B to plan
  • a multi-generational family that needs refreshed floor plans and colour consultation to personalise rooms
  • anyone who needs fresh eyes to transform their home into a dream home

PLUS, if you are planning to sell your home after renovations then a different design approach must be considered. OR, if you want to sell your home NOW, I will provide a report on all the areas you need to address in order to maximise its sale potential.


I’m an architectural and interior designer in Adelaide who will organise and oversee the tradies you need for your design interiors and outdoor spaces for renovation and maintenance jobs. That includes both homes to live in and homes for sale.

Whilst I am an Adelaide interior designer, I do provide virtual 3D floor planning services for those who live in rural or interstate areas. This e-design service is best suited to home owners wishing to change their current floor plan and/or extend their home. If you have purchased your hme in the past 10 years it is likely I can aquire the floor plan. However, you may also have your own floor plan that will be useful for me to work with.


I will help you plan in 3D and design whilst not over-capitalising. Mood boards, samples, images, 3D perspectives, floor plans and even a walk-through video are all part of my architectural and interior design services.


When you make the decison to hire an interior designer, you want to ensure it’s someone you like and someone you trust. Taking the time to talk with you and understand your needs is part of the process for functional design and beautiful results. I can also recommend trusted contractors, if required, and source the best products whilst saving you money.


Working with many wholesalers means I can show you different options that you may not be able to source yourself. This includes building materials, applainces, furniture, lighting, fabric, flooring, wall art, accessories and more.
