3d Concepts Hit The Mark

When we made the decision to renovate our kitchen, hallway and wine tasting room I decided to hire an Interior Designer.  After searching on the internet I found Plush Design Interiors.

From the moment I met Penelope I knew that she understood my vision.  Penelope’s ideas & designs were incredible and it became very obvious very quickly to see how much she personally cares about her clients.

My brief to her was “not a white kitchen” and “moody masculine wine tasting room”.  Above all the kitchen needed to be functional !!  Once I saw the gorgeous 3D renders of my spaces I knew that I had found someone very special.

The result was a beautifully designed functional kitchen zone that incorporated a work, relax and social zone.  The wine tasting room is moody masculine and sexy and the entrance incredibly welcoming and warm.

Penelope was a delight to work with, we just love being in our home and can’t thank her enough for  her thoughtful and kind approach.

Transformation For A Family Of Five

We initially engaged Penelope to provide us with ideas for a new living/kitchen area. After our meeting, Penelope provided us with a 3D design, floor plan and interior design report. Penelope was able to take all of our ideas and develop a design that would work well for our family of 5.

With Penelope’s help we decided to complete the renovation and it has totally transformed our home and the way we live.

Penelope project managed the renovation for us: recommending a fantastic builder, arranging trades and quotes, being onsite as required while we were working, bringing fabric, tile and flooring samples to the house and many other jobs which made the renovation process much easier for us.

Penelope gave us the confidence to complete the large renovation we’d been talking about for 8 years. We have no hesitation in recommending Penelope.

Six Star Resort Feel

I have great pleasure in recommending Penelope from Plush Design Interiors. Her response to my request on Houzz was almost instant and from there the fun and relationship grew.

It was such a relief for me to hand my bedroom project over to her. Her ideas were brilliant and together we made selections. I never felt pressured to make a decision, instead everything just revealed itself.

I am so happy with the end result, I feel that every time I walk into my bedroom I am walking into a six star resort. Thank you Penelope and your sub contractors.

Stylish + Put-Together

We had a wonderful experience with Plush Design Interiors, and would recommend Penelope to anyone looking for beautiful, practical interior design ideas and advice.

Penelope really listened to what we liked and needed – with a young family we had to stay practical about what would and wouldn’t work, but we still wanted a home that felt stylish and put-together. She was generous with her time and thoughtful in her advice.

Working with her gave us the courage to make choices that resulted in beautiful, stylish rooms that we would never have achieved on our own.

Like Working With A Trusted Friend

I employed Plush Design Interiors to provide an interior design report on some rooms I wanted to extend and renovate. I wanted to see how it could all look before going ahead.

Working with Penelope is like working alongside a close and trusted friend. She listens, is generous with her time and non-judgemental.

She is polite, professional and definitely passionate about interior design. I now feel confident enough to take the next step. Thank you, Penelope.

The Kids Were Included In My Funky Home

Plush Design Interiors was recommended to me by a friend who had renovated with them. As the Principal Designer, 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 and Renee 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.

Communicative, Creative + Efficient

With a recommendation from a friend, we engaged Plush Design Interiors 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.

Pulled Out of a Renovation Nightmare

Having got halfway through a renovation, we suddenly realised we had no idea what we were doing. By the time we engaged Plush Design Interiors, we had taken out a couple of walls, pulled up flooring and half removed a kitchen. It was all a huge mess and we had completely lost our passion for the renovation.

Plush Design Interiors reignited that passion with a clear and creative approach to fixing the problems we had created, developing a colour and textural palette, and suggesting new furniture and lighting options we hadn’t considered.

To have our renovation back on track with a clear vision was such a relief. Don’t go through what we did; call Penelope and get it all done right the first time. Thank you, Penelope. Drinks on the new deck soon.

Over-Elaborate Decor Begged a Masterful Touch

As a Professional Singer-Entertainer, my house reflects the facets of my personality and career highlights. Apparently, this equated to a somewhat over-elaborate decor that begged a masterful touch. We found that in Plush Design Interiors.

Penelope has retained elements of my heritage and deftly blended fresh ideas to create a sensational home environment that we absolutely adore! We rate her with the highest recommendation possible and will be utilising her mastery again.

Highest Personal Recommendation

We were 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 – Hahndorf

Wasted Money Was Ridiculous

Penelope is awesome and 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 hesitate, call Plush Design Interiors.

Spent Time Discussing Our Needs + Lifestyle

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.

Fantastic Professional

Fantastic professional, very personable and truly takes her time to take your own personality, furniture and environment into consideration when putting forward ideas. My decorating project is in its infancy and I am looking forward to the next step. Thank you Penelope

Guides + Supports Choices

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!
