“Thank you Kim. You totally transformed our living room. It previously lacked warmth and colour. It is now a beautiful warm space that is such a joy to look at and be in. You have an amazing sense of colour and style and we will always be grateful to you for our beautiful new lounge.

“We commissioned Kim Black Design to transform our small outdated (post-war home), boxed-in kitchen into a large open plan living/eating area (on a tight budget!).

Kim completely managed entire the process for our “60-hour makeover”. I didn’t have to ring one tradesman! Kim offered really successful suggestions to improve the layout (and resale value should we ever leave), she showed attention to detail on every step of the transformation. Stylish Ideas we wouldn’t have dreamed of, but look fantastic!

The space is completely transformed and she has dragged our old house into the 21st century!

I can highly recommend Kim for her keen eye and fresh approach to styling. Thank you so much Kim.” – Johanna Conroy – Sherwood

“From paintwork to bed head, right down to vanilla candles and trinket boxes, Kim’s attention to detail and consideration of client specific requirements is second to none.

Working on quite a limited budget, I was very impressed to see Kim work with existing home wares I already had, while sourcing quality yet reasonably priced additions to pull my private space together and give it the wow factor that was sorely missing.

Kim kept me frequently updated on timeframes and potential pieces, confidently yet gently ensuring that I was happy with the direction her work was taking.

Following completion of my bedroom, my housemate and I have further employed Kim’s services to completely refurbish our kitchen and living room.

We feel very comfortable with allowing her to ‘take the reins’. Kim has saved us innumerable headaches into the bargaining, sourcing and liaising with a myriad of tradepeople and kitchen suppliers involved in the process. – Moira McMinn – Sherwood

My client was looking for something professional & fresh with a bit of an edge. I took inspiration from the locality (New Farm) of the business and collaborated with my client to achieve a great space.

Kim Black Design worked with us in the first instance with input to design and build a new kitchen and laundry. Kim recommended a tradesman to carry out this work and she and Nathan worked very harmoniously as a team. To refurnish our bedrooms and living room Kim’s knowledge and expertise came to the fore. In selecting fabrics and organising the making and installation of curtain and blinds, bed coverings, lounge chair recovering, as well as choosing new furniture and furnishings, for example cushions, and lighting Kim’s experience was invaluable. At all times she was ready to incorporate our ideas along with her own suggestions. And she was ready to suit our budget.

We enjoyed working with Kim and are very happy with our renewed house.

We hired Kim for the recent refurbishment of our Master Bedroom and found her delightful to work with. Kim listened thoughtfully to our ideas and requirements and presented us with several options including concepts we hadn’t considered. Communication was always timely and clear. Several price options were offered for most items which afforded us to allocate our budget most efficiently. Kim was wonderful to work with and we look forward to working with her again in the near future.

I would like to say one simple thing: Kim is exceptional. I found out about Kim on the web and phoned her to ask for help to to build a home library and a study nook. She put me in contact with a fantastic joiner and the result has been amazing. I am enjoying my home so much more. She is professional, kind, down to earth, punctual and she has great taste. I have been so impressed with her. I strongly recommend her.

Interior Design Consultation and Service. Kim attended my home and helped me through the process of redecorating my home. She was very professional and did a wonderful job. She worked tirelessly with me over a few months and I loved what she was doing so much that I kept adding on more and more jobs for her to do. Thank you Kim, my home looks wonderful now and people always comment.
