8 ways to get creative with paint effects



The Explorer

The Explorer creates homes that are a journey, for their clients and for themselves.  Always searching for authenticity and individuality, the Explorer will never allow their style to become repetitive or conformist.

Hire them: for creating eclectic, intelligent and individual interior design.

Who to hire: Suzy Hoodless, Maddux Creative, Faye Toogood


The Rebel

This is interior design as a punk performance.  And like Billy Idol sang, the rebel yell is always more, more, more.  So expect maximalist in-your-face living, full of neon colours  – and maybe the occasional flat mirrored surface.

Hire them: for interior design that looks best crammed with party people at 4am.

Who to hire: Denis Kosutic, Peter Marino, Bobby Trendy


The Lover

It is a short journey from living to loving for the owners of these homes.  The Lover creates interiors that are charismatic, tempting, luxurious and lascivious.  Full of curves and textures, every corner and detail is utterly consumable.

Hire them: for interior design you’ll secretly want to keep all for yourself.

Who to hire: Drake Anderson, Marcel wanders, Dimore Studio


The Traditionalist

The rarified world of the Traditionalist is full of ornate detailing and classical proportions.  This is interior design as an act of preservation, as well one of creation.

Hire them: if your home is an heirloom you’re preserving for the next generation.

Who to hire: Guy Goodfellow, Henrietta Spencer Churchill, Robert Kime


The Maker
