MY STORY

My story started as a creative young girl sewing up a storm on my mother’s old sewing machine, designing, making and selling lingerie to design stores in Newmarket (while still in high-school), working in costume departments for film and TV and finally running my own fashion label for 6 years.

While working in fashion, I also renovated 3 homes, which always filled me with inspiration and a passion for the industry. And then the creative tug of war began, with interior design sitting on my shoulder wanting more attention. Eventually Interiors stole my heart and won the design battle.

I have always been obsessed with design and particularly the use of COLOUR (my happy place). Colour changes a space dramatically and sets a great stage for designing a gorgeous space, filled with personality.  Layer in some amazing textures, shapes and some PLANTS  (your new best friend) and you have a unique and insanely cool place to live in.

Your home should tell the STORY of your life and reflect the people that live there. It should be full of colour, plants, curiosities and little corners that make you smile and bring back happy memories.

The design process is a journey, that we will go on together. I will help transform your vision, with a fun and stress-free approach, focused on listening, translating and creating a space that you love living in and fills you with pleasure.

So take me around your home and let’s see how we can make it TELL YOUR STORY.

Colour Consultation

“Colour is my thing”. It’s incredible the difference a fresh coat of paint can make, it can literally transform a space. With my extensive knowledge of paints and how colours work, I will take the stress and hard work out of your decision making.

I will ensure your colour choices are cohesive with your home, your style and that they will make your heart sing. The joy of colour is it can be bold or subtle, so if coloured walls aren’t your thing, then let’s look at injecting some colour into some fun furnishings and accessories.

Styling Advice

$350 + GST

If you need advice on things like accessorising your bookcase, picking out artwork, what paint colour will go with your style or how to lay out furniture your already own, this one’s for you.

Finishing Touches

$550 + GST

This one is for you, if you already have some furniture but need to purchase more pieces to complete a cohesive look.

Total Makeover

$699 + GST

This is a blank slate. You could be moving into a new place, or just wanting to re-do an entire room. We will help you decorate it from start to finish.

Do you have Pinterest pages full of great design ideas, but don’t know how to turn them into your dream home? Well I’m here to help via E Design. The best thing about E Design is that you can achieve a fabulous space affordably, at your own pace and from anywhere in New Zealand.

The process is super easy, you fill in a fun questionnaire – take some pictures and measurements of your space and then I’ll create an initial design board with a couple of concepts, and design ideas to give you a feel for the space. This board will not be a fully designed room, but will be a starting point that will give you a feel for the space, with your feedback I will continue to edit, source and design new ideas. We continue this process until we have a completed space that you love. A space that allows your home to “Tell Your Story”. I source products from a combination of retail and trade suppliers. For all the direct retail pieces, I’ll simply give you a list and you can purchase them yourself. But with any trade items, I will order them, get them delivered to you and then pass on trade discounts.

It’s a fun process, that I love to bits, as we let your house “Tell Your Story” and reflect the amazing people that live there.

I’m passionate about designing a space for you, with pieces you love – it’s all about you!

CLIENT LOVE

What can I say…I LOVE working with Erina!Her sense of style and fun coupled with her desire to get down to the nitty gritty of what we are looking to achieve for our home, takes her absolutely to the next level.

She embraces working in with what we already have, loves to ‘upcycle’ the unloved and once the brief has been fully absorbed she offers up fabulous options, and at different price points.

She has taken the spaces she has worked on thus far from ‘blah’ to ‘holy moly’ and I cannot wait to get her involved with our next space that needs her magic.

Thank you Erina…you are a breath of fresh air with your flair and talent.We love how you have made our home sing.XX

Erina’s style is totally awesome and completely unique. She has an extraordinary eye especially for the eccentric, the one-offs and the eclectic, which suited us perfectly. She is quick and stays on brief and budget. I highly recommend her.

Imogen / Westmere, Auckland

We have been so fortunate to have Erina’s expertise in creatively incorporating new styles and furniture with the existing look in the living areas in our home. Erina has a real talent for colour and spatial design and combines this with a high work ethic and exceptional project management skills. She also brings a freshness to living spaces with her knowledge and clever use of plants. Erina’s warmth and connection ensures she is highly attuned to what the client is trying to achieve (and she is endlessly patient!). The magic she has achieved in our living area and outdoor deck has been transformational and we have fallen in love with our home all over again!

Hannah / Mt Eden, Auckland

Erina has been truly incredible in transforming our home. She has great talent working with what you have , what you want to keep and adding new pieces, working within your budget. Her ability to totally transform a room is really clever. Our house has never felt connected throughout. I am so thrilled with what she has done for us to rectify this and create some themes and connection..  She has also created  a beautiful outside space that now feels like another room, not just the  back deck and transformed our  entrance which now has great seating, plants and colours that just pop. I am getting so many comments about how amazing it looks. My dream would be to have Erina do the entire interior design of a home from scratch!

Liddy / Epsom, Auckland

“Erina thanks for all your help with our new house. We loved the way that you styled our existing pieces in a way that we wouldn’t have thought of, to work in with the new pieces that you sourced for us. Your pre-planning made a huge difference to the end result, with a great design-eye to create a space full of new art, plants and furniture. The mix of high-end and less expensive pieces was great to achieve what we where after on our budget. We love all the pieces that you picked out for us, and are looking forward to your help to finish off a couple more rooms. We are definitely enjoying our more colourful and interesting palette.”

Hilary / Mount Eden, Auckland

“Erina helped us to get our house ready for the market. She advised us on some key “freshening up” decorating decisions which really made a big difference to the appeal of our house. Erina helped us to prioritise what needed doing and without her advice I think we would have not met our show home deadline. Erina helped to de-clutter and style our house ready for open homes. Erina is practical and efficient in her approach and she has natural design flare. Erina is knowledgeable about current trends and she has great colour sense. I felt that she really listened to our needs and delivered a great result in a short time frame. I would not hesitate to get her advice on interiors in the future.”
