I am very fortunate to have a career in an industry that I love and I have dedicated over 20 years to designing, decorating and styling some truly amazing spaces. I have a Certificate II in Visual Merchandising and Diplomas in both Colour and Design and Interior Styling from the International School or Colour and Design (ISCD) where I was awarded two scholarships for excellence. I have also won multiple awards for my work in the event design arena for exhibition stand design and I am also a very proud member of the Design Institute of Australia in Interior Decorating.
There was never any question that I wanted to work in the design industry. I love creating, I love seeing an idea come to life and I adore creating beautiful, functional spaces. I have worked in a lot of different areas of design – Visual Merchandising, Event Design, Property Styling, Photographic Styling, Interior Decorating and Furniture Design and now run two successful businesses - MBM Styling Co. concentrates on Interior Decorating and Property Styling and Mayvn Interiors is a Furniture Design and Import business.
The increasing popularity of coastal living has resulted in a growing interest in elegant, low-key interiors. Establishing a sense of relaxed informality in a space is what I love to do best. This is where I am most at home – producing timeless interiors that are comfortable, functional and beautiful.
