Lindfield Home – Cameron & Melanie

“There are so many decisions that come with building a new house.  We engaged Anoushka early in the process to help us with our interiors including colour schemes, fit outs, furnishings and floorings and we are so pleased we did. Anoushka took the time to understand our needs and what we liked and was always available to help us with decisions. The end result is an amazing, beautiful and very functional family home that is a real pleasure to be in. We would recommend Anoushka without hesitation.”

“The only way to tackle a renovation project is to engage SmartSpace Interiors. Anoushka makes the process easy, efficient and organised – perfect for someone time-poor like me. She takes the time to get to know you, your tastes and style. Her understanding of space meant her floor plans made my rooms feel larger. Where I was clear about the look I wanted in some rooms, Anoushka helped refine and finesse my ideas. Where I was completely unsure about the look I wanted, she was able to hone in on my aesthetic and design rooms not only totally suited to the space, but also to my personality.

Thank you for making renovating as easy as possible and thank you for helping me create a beautiful home!”

Randwick Home – Annabelle & Joshua

“When the time came to renovate, we had very clear ideas on the look & feel we wanted to create – along with years’ worth of magazine cut outs and mood boards! We’d never considered using a designer as we both have a passion for it and couldn’t wait to bring our vision to life. We were nervous that if we used a designer, our ideas would be lost in the process. However, we were very time poor – both working full time, with a toddler and another baby on the way. We decided to explore using someone, mainly to help with the sourcing and ‘leg work’, and to have someone to bounce ideas off to ensure we were making the right decisions – after all, when you’re spending that much money renovating, you want to make sure you get it right!

We spoke to Anoushka, from SmartSpace Interiors, and just clicked. She removed any concerns we had around using a designer and we knew straight away she was the perfect person for us to work with. Anoushka’s approach was very collaborative, she took the time up-front to really understand our style and the kind of home we wanted to create. Throughout the process, Anoushka was an absolute pleasure to work with – patient, efficient, helpful, caring, strong attention to detail and always willing to go the extra mile to help source exactly what we had our heart set on. Anoushka opened our eyes to things we hadn’t considered, whilst also helping us to stay true to the look & feel we set out to achieve.

We’re so grateful that we came across SmartSpace Interiors and had the opportunity to work with Anoushka. She helped us bring our vision to life, create our dream home and took so much stress out of what can be one of the most stressful times in your life! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SmartSpace Interiors.”

“We are extremely happy with the overall design of the rooms we worked on. The style we were going for has been matched perfectly and the items that have been sourced for the room really match both of our personalities and tastes to give us rooms we both love. Some of the harder spaces we have in our rooms have been used extremely well so that what we thought were going to be wasted areas have been used.”

City Apartment – Sean & John

“We are very happy with both the process and the outcome of our work with Anoushka.  Her ideas and guidance gave us the confidence to create something that suits our style; her extensive network of suppliers proved immensely convenient; and overall the outcome was highly cost-effective.

Our project involved a significant renovation of a 3 bedroom apartment in the Sydney CBD.  We appointed Anoushka after contacting and interviewing a number of designers.  We had quite a clear idea about the nature and scale of the project but given we were practically gutting the apartment and starting from scratch, Anoushka helped us to refine our own brief and our ideas.  Our project started with a fairly substantial budget which grew based on the choices we made for products and finishes but Anoushka provided sound budget advise throughout – where to spend, where to conserve.

We appointed Anoushka to help with the creative elements of the renovation and also to project manage the venture from construction to the end styling.   The renovation provided the opportunity to work with a blank canvas and we drew on her extensive network of suppliers who were professional and reliable.  For the interior design the brief was to bring together existing and new pieces of furniture and art – we’ve lived overseas in different countries for almost 15 of the last 30 years which made the task quite a challenge yet we feel Anoushka has made it all work well together.  Her project management skills were highly professional and gave us peace-of-mind and meant the project came together with all of the required suppliers in the most efficient manner.   We were kept well informed of progress and unexpected issues were handled calmly and competently

We’re very happy in our new home and our friends have been very flattering. It was a pleasure working with Anoushka and we’ve already recommended her to people without reservation.”

Paddington Terrace – Catherine

“We cannot recommend Smartspace Interiors enough. Anoushka took on a design role as well as a number of unforeseen roles during the project including planning and designing the kitchen and bathroom spaces to furnishing impeccably the entire house. We are so ecstatic with the outcome which could not have been achieved without Anoushka’s incredible eye for design and flair. Our once tiny terrace now feels like an open, light and decent sized functional home thanks to a number of clever design suggestions. It was such a pleasure working with Anoushka and was hands down the best part of the project.”

Glebe House – John & Kristy

“We are delighted with our home. Working with Anoushka took the pain out of the renovation/ interior design process. She took the time to get to know us, our tastes, preferences and was extremely efficient and flexible. She has a great eye for colour and style! Anoushka was a delight to work with and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Anoushka and SmartSpace Interiors for any interior design project.”

Ermington House – Fiona & Mark

“When we moved into our new home in August 2013, we quickly realised that very little of our furniture looked right in this modern and light new-build. We struggled to come up with ideas to make the space work in the best way for us – and ultimately found Anoushka’s website online. We liked the look of her makeovers, and although we had never worked with a designer before, decided to take the plunge. She was friendly and supportive throughout our makeover process; she guided us towards some fantastic solutions, but made sure that we were comfortable with each decision and that we had every opportunity to put our own stamp on the final design. The result has been delightful – we now have living rooms that suit our taste and lifestyle; there is enough storage to make it easy to maintain – and the savings we generated through using her supplier network more than covered the actual design costs. We would recommend Anoushka to anyone who is looking for some help with their interior space, and will be using her services again when we tackle our upstairs areas! ”
