Over the years, Carmel Interior Design has prided itself on our high levels of client satisfaction. Below are some testimonials from some of our satisfied clients:

Building a new home was daunting and wanted help with colours and a friend suggested we contact CarMel. We were so delighted with her advice that we also ordered our blinds and curtains with her. The finished result was a house that looked classy. We engaged CarMel again 15 years later to organise renovations and used her builder and suppliers. Again, absolutely delighted with the result. We specifically select CarMel Interior Design for our project because of Carmel’s knowledge and professionalism. We trusted her and last year’s renovation particularly was as stress less as is possible. CarMel's creativity and ideas on materials and importantly connections with the trades and suppliers were a critical contribute to the outcome. I know CarMel was successful with the outcome, when friends walk into our foyer and go “wow”. Denise & Paul Van Gaal Whitebridge

“We have used Carmel’s expertise to assist us in two homes now and can’t speak highly enough of her friendly, professional, and individual design and decorating help. Carmel helped us decorate our home in our style and to suit our taste by sourcing exactly what we had been looking for but were unable to properly describe let alone find. Our home is how we want it …practical and beautiful thanks to Carmel. She helped us with it all from paint colours to furniture.” Many thanks,
