"Interior Design and mental well-being go hand in hand. Whether it's your home, weekender, workspace or office, you should feel relaxed, comfortable and inspired. This is what i aim to create through my work." - REBECCA CORDINGLEY, INTERIOR DESIGN

A bit about Rebecca

Rebecca holds a Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration from the International School of Colour and Design (ISCD). During her time at ISCD she attained the technical skills and techniques for tapping into her creative brain and an understanding of the elements and principles of design.

Prior to becoming an Interior Designer, Rebecca had a successful career in the Events and Marketing industries. Given that Interior Design requires communication, critical thinking, project management and patience, the valuable skills gained throughout her career sets her apart from other designers.

Rebecca believes that your home should reflect who you are and make you relax the moment you walk through the door. She doesn’t believe you should rip out the old and completely replace with the new. A mix of old pieces that have history and meaning for you, quality and affordable furniture you love and pops of fun are the key to success. Since she graduated, she has used her experience to work with clients across Sydney on cosmetic renovations, property styling projects and the redesign of residential interior spaces.

When asked where she wants her career to go, she said,

“Renovations and new builds are an area I’m very keen to get more involved in. Combining my project management and design skills together to help bring a clients’ vision to life literally from the floor up is exciting. My end goal is to run my own successful design business renovating, designing and decorating with a great team and lots of happy clients.”
