Testimonials from my Lovely Clients
"I used Debbie's services to choose colours, wall coverings and curtains for my home repair and renovation. Debbie very quickly tuned into what were the right styles and colours schemes for me.
She was able to provide some stunning solutions and I am thrilled with the final result. I have received many, many compliments on my home decor. Debbie has an unique ability to really understand her clients' needs and to find the right choices without overwhelming you with too much to choose from.
I would definitely use her again!"

"I was a bit stuck trying to decide on the colour scheme and overall design ideas for my new home.
Debbie produced interior and exterior colour schemes, carpet and tiles, kitchen and bathroom selections, beautiful drapery, new furniture and helped me understand the style of decor that would suit my new house. She also took into account all the members of my family including my many pets!
Over the time of the build, Debbie worked with me helping to choose many of the fixtures and fittings as it was just too time consuming to try and do this on my own and there were so many things that I just didn't have the knowledge about. She made it all so easy and painless and came up with wonderful ideas that I would never have thought of.
I now have a beautifully put together home that my family and friends love also. I saved so much time and money by using Debbie's services. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Debbie to others."
Lynley Gray, Halswell
“Our renovation effectively meant that apart from the kitchen cupboards and bench, we were starting the interior from scratch. The scale of everything we needed to choose and pay for (new flooring, wall colours, lighting, tiles and bathroom fixtures to name a few) was overwhelming and it would have taken more time and energy than we had to research and select the right products, let alone ensure that they all worked well together. Debbie’s skill, product knowledge, ideas and positive approach were invaluable for us through our project.
We are extremely happy with the result and love how our home looks and feels. The great thing about working with Debbie, is that we discussed the overall feel and concept we wanted, but didn’t have to do any of the hard work to get it. She brought us great options to consider and choose from, even designing bespoke pieces and exceeded our expectations of what our home could look like. She met our brief for more warmth and texture while still keeping it minimal with clean lines.
Other benefits in working with Debbie were that she kept our budget in mind – it was reassuring knowing that the options we were shown fitted our project budget. If we were uncertain about anything she always provided us additional alternatives to consider. Finally, but importantly she met all deadlines and fitted in with the timings of our builders and other trades.
Overall the main benefit of using Debbie services is that every dollar we have spent on our interior has been well targeted to provide us with the home interior we wanted. Through using Debbie’s services, we have avoided any mistakes of not quite getting something right. Our now completed home looks amazing and is great to live in."

"I chose to engage Debbie at Blue Nautilus Interior Design as I met her at our woman's Networking group. She gave a very clear and inspiring presentation detailing how she conducts her appointments. She has a warm and friendly manner and really listens to what her clients want to achieve.
She has good processes in place to identify client needs. The Colour and Style exercise was really fun,and it was interesting to discover my style preferences. She provided ideas I hadn't considered and has access to suppliers making the renovation process easier.
We have a third bedroom that still needs to be able to be used occasionally as a guest bedroom but in meeting with Debbie I came to the realisation that its primary purpose is to be used as my beauty treatment room for clients whereas prior to that I was viewing it with the bedroom being the primary function, which it won't be.
I came away from the appointment reassured and excited. I have already recommended Debbie to a friend letting her know that Debbie does live the value of mindful design and is very much about what you as the client are wanting to achieve."

"I recently contracted Blue Nautilus Interior Design to update and harmonise my living room decors. In addition, I needed storage solutions for one of these rooms which doubles as an office, and a means of making the tv in the other room less obtrusive.
It has been easy and fun to work with Debbie. She offered ideas and solutions that really worked both from a practical and design standpoint. Her use of mood boards was really helpful as it gave me an opportunity to visualise the spaces, which was an important aspect for me.
I appreciated Debbie’s efforts in wanting to understand my life-style, needs and preferences and this has culminated in a result that I am extremely happy with. It found it easy to get in touch with Debbie when needed, and she responds in a timely manner to any issues or queries that arise.
I would certainly use Debbie again and highly recommend her services to anyone embarking on an Interior Design project."
