Elizabeth Metcalfe believes design makes a difference. It’s about helping clients live better and falling in love with their home. Good design creates a feeling of warmth and unity. It requires a commitment to detail – repetition of line and form, the subtleties of colour, the contrast of layered textures, the play of scale and proportion. A finished room may look simple, but it is not simple to do.
With a philosophy to provide tailored lifestyle-centric solutions of exceptional quality, we take pride in the fact that we are not confined to a signature design style. This enables our multi-talented design team to create solutions which meet the lifestyle and desires of the client, while respecting cues given by the established “architecture” of the environment.
