Canning Street, North Melbourne

“We were stuck in a house we didn’t like and were thinking about downsizing. But the location (North Melbourne) made us think twice. We approached Vikki for advice on what could be done with our double storey town house that we had lived in for 15+ years. We quickly realised that she was a very talented designer with excellent contacts, but most important we knew we would be able to work with her. Vikki reconfigured the downstairs internal rooms to give us an additional study/bedroom, downstairs shower and bathroom and added a deck to the rear of the family room for outdoor entertaining. She transformed a 1980’s looking house into something that today we are thrilled with. Vikki’s technical knowledge was invaluable throughout the project. She redesigned our hallway replacing west facing windows with ones that were smaller and 300% more energy efficient. She was as comfortable drawing up specs for a builder as she was choosing furniture and drapes. In any renovation there are many ups and downs, but Vikki was unfailingly patient, using good grace and humour when dealing with us and the many other suppliers involved. It was a huge project – but one that has transformed the physical layout and appearance of our house and made it somewhere we truly enjoy living in. We can’t thank her enough and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone contemplating a similar exercise.” – Moreen D
