Creating spaces whether at home or in a commercial setting, uses the same principles of space and design as the other areas I have become the master of.
I believe good interior design is born from knowing when to stop. Allowing elements to breathe in space and own the visual environment is my mantra.
My skill set and theatricality lends itself to special projects and these interiors, while working under the banner of Cut the Mustard, have stood the test of time and design over the years.

There are hundreds of homes all over the world I have specified colours for and helped the owners make their own. I worked for many years for various housing companies including:
- Platinum Homes
- GJ Gardener
- A1 Homes
I also worked as a colour consultant for:
- Resene Paints
I take into account the clients personality, their wants and needs in the function of their home and judge their needs for direction. I will always suggest out of their comfort zone and encourage their own individuality.
