Our Ethos

By changing the way people feel about their environment, ultimately it can change the way they feel about themselves

∽ Marylou Sobel

Our Approach

We approach each project with a unique perspective, listening and giving careful consideration to the context of the brief and working closely with our clients. Beginning with the initial discussions and concept development, it is imperative that we form strong relationships, allowing our clients to trust the process and enjoy seeing their space come to life.

Our Process

Our projects are broken into three distinct phases.

Phase One
Phase Two
Phase Three

Project Initiation

The initial consultation where Marylou will meet with you to outline the brief, scope of works and budget. Marylou uses this time to understand and establish how you like to live, your aesthetic and who will be using the spaces.

Once we have established that we would work well together, the magic begins...

Research, Design and Presentation

This phase is a process of discovery and development. We complete a Project Site Assessment and a ‘trade day’ as part of the discovery process. Meet with qualified insured trades for the clarifying work required to achieve the client's goal. Select all FF&E (Furniture, Fittings and Equipment). Prepare visual documentation and estimates for our presentation to the client.

Project Implementation

This is where the project turns into a reality. The project now moves towards physical completion as materials orders are placed. We coordinate and manage all FF&E orders. Approval of all joinery and supplier sampling prior to manufacturing. Relevant contractors are engaged, and we begin the process of bringing to life the client's new stunning space. We have regular site meetings to monitor the progress of the build.

Project Installation

When the building works have been completed it is time to install the furniture and soft furnishings and see the project come to life. We manage and coordinate the delivery, quality control, and installation of all the procured items, including artwork and objects for styling.

Kind Words from Our Clients

Dumaresq Road

Working with Marylou was very rewarding. We connected with her immediately. She took into account our lifestyle, our use of each space and our vision for each space. It was a delight to travel the streets of Sydney with Marylou. She gave us choices beyond our expectations and it was heartwarming to see the relationships she has built up with all the furniture houses.
