Sari is really lovely to work with and has a great eye, and a talent for dealing with complicated/small/unusual spaces! We worked with INSIDESIGN to develop some interior concepts for our home in the inner west of Sydney, and a bathroom design. Sari went out of her way to help not only with the design but also the sourcing. She is efficient and professional at all times and I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend her to others!
Cannot recommend enough! Sari is a delight to deal with! She helped us with space planning of our tiny living space in our inner west terrace. Sari had great ideas and options for how to best use and style the space. We really wanted to make a space for a dining area and she helped us do that (no more folding away the high chair!) She also provided us with a detailed shopping list and worked to our tight budget. Her service was above and beyond what I expected!
I live in small rental property typical of Sydney's inner suburbs and wanted to freshen the space without making permanent changes that couldn't come with me when I moved. I found Sari through a post on Inner West Mums and could not be more thrilled with the results. I'm one of those people who knows what I love when I see it but have a hard time putting it into words or putting a look together myself.
Sari listened to my rambling likes and dislikes, had a think, and voila, turned out pages of suggestions that nailed what I love. She has taken the main rooms of my two-bedroom terrace and made them lighter, brighter, more spacious and more cozy, all with an eye for budget and practicality (I have a 2 year old and 3 month old). I have been incredibly impressed with Sari's professionalism, efficiency, and performance (just wait until you see the design pdf she creates for you). And she will even do the shopping! I expect Sari with be designing many of my rooms and homes in the years to come.
We have a small studio apartment in Manly that we had thought of renovating already couple of years ago. We felt like there was not much we could do with the apartment and the cost was very high. INSIDESIGN came to rescue and sorted out both our problems! Sari produced us a professional report in no time where she offered great ideas and solutions within the small space there was to play with. She even produced a shopping list and worked with our aim to keep the budget low. Having Sari to guide as through the renovation process made the whole project so much easier!
I loved the fact that I did not have to come up with colours and colour schemes as I have no eye for that at all. It was all in the shopping list! What a breeze! Thank you INSIDESIGN and Sari. Very creative, professional and helpful!
We recently invested in a new kitchen, laundry, living area and decking for the backyard. We've never had major renovations before, and were not sure where to start. I work full time, and do not have much time for (or interest in to be honest) interior design. Sari was just brilliant because she walked me through a lot of different options. By asking the right questions, Sari helped me find exactly the right style for us. I love our new kitchen and living area, it is just perfect, and it would not be nearly as good without the wise advice we received from Sari.
I was extending our house and making the existing rooms more user friendly. I had lots of ideas about what I liked and the ‘feel’ for the rooms but not sure exactly how it would all go together. Sari was very helpful in assisting me with her Interior Coaching where we discussed our ideas. Seeing her 3D computer images of our designed rooms reassured me that we were on the right track. She gave me the confidence to go ahead with my ideas and it was a great starting point that I could add and change ideas. Sari helped me with the kitchen, laundry, master bedroom and ensuite designs. Sari came up with lots of great ideas, one of my favourite being the use of an Ecosmart biofuel fireplace in the master bedroom. We wanted a fireplace but were told we were not permitted to have gas or log fire in our bedroom for health and safety reasons. We thought we’d have to give up that feature until Sari told us about this solution which was very exciting! I would definitely recommend Sari to anyone who needs any amount of assistance with a renovation. I believe she would be an asset to any renovation. I like to be hands on with our projects and Sari was great with listening to my ideas but still allowing for my ideas to mesh with hers. I could also see her being very useful for someone who would like to be less involved in the design process.
