Residential home in Ocean Grove / hallway

Interior Decorating

A welcoming inviting feel starts in the hallway, so the dark tiles were replaced by a nice light flooring, the window frames became white and the beautiful old piano was replaced by a little side table. The vertical blinds had to go too and became venetian blinds instead. All in all the overall feel became fresh, welcoming and spacious and by adding a gorgeous glass framed door between the hallway and kitchen/ dining area, I created a visual flow and connection between both spaces.

Testimonial from the owners

It could have not been better timing when Maartje came into our lives,  when our beautiful but very tired looking home needed a huge lift.
There was no looking back and we couldn’t be happier. Maartje initially met our family, listened to our ideas, needs and generally sought to understand how we use our living spaces and the opportunities to make more of these areas.    Her thought process was inspirational with innovative ideas not just for the present but also looking towards our future lifestyle. Maartje is a listener and was very easy to communicate with, her bright and energetic personality meant we couldn’t help but feel very comfortable in working together with her.  More importantly she listened intently  to our thoughts and could see the vision of how to decorate this home to be a home that suited our family’s lifestyle.  The depth of Maartje’s knowledge, vision,  eye for colours, textures, creativity and passion was truly amazing.  Transforming a very weary looking home into such a bright, welcoming space which I am so proud to share with family and  friends.  We worked on a budget, and Maartje really could find amazing bargains that complimented our home. Maartje provided more than design and inspiration, she supervised the technical design and managed the precurement process for the complete transformation from full kitchen replacement, rejuvenating our living areas, heating and cooling, light fittings, floor coverings and furnishings.  Our entrance is so welcoming and bright. The kitchen is a dream come true, all that we wanted and more.  From a kitchen with limited functionality, now transformed to such a workable, light filled and spacious area, and beautifully decorated.  Our lounge is now the real heart of our home, making the most of the natural light, an area where you truly relax with a beautiful ambiance, soft colours and lighting, and so welcoming to all who visit.  Maartje working with us has transformed our lifestyles in an incredibly positive manner and we would have absolutely have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone looking to modernise and enhance their existing or new home.
Thankyou Maartje for allowing this transformation to happen in such a caring and engaged manner and we look forward to our next stage in working together on our next exciting projects.

Amazing teenage space

MH interior decorating recently helped us to update our son’s childhood bedroom. Maartje’s consultation process and thoughtfulness to all elements of design resulted in an amazing teenage space. The design captured all the practical elements we requested, but by far the greatest features of the room were Maartje's ideas and the feeling and layout that was created far exceeded our expectations. The room captured my son's personality and interests, as well as his need for a peaceful and uncluttered breakout place. Although we did the renovation ourselves, Maartje's support and encouragement along the way was instrumental in having the courage to carry out the design as well as providing help with some practical features. We are so grateful we worked together with MH interior designs. Maartje's is a talented and professional decorator and we feel privileged to have had her work in our home.


Enjoying the outcome

I contacted MH Interior Decorating to get some help with choosing the right colour scheme for my lounge area and needed some help with my artworks. I am still enjoying the outcome of this Interior decorating advice and will definitely get in touch with MH when I am doing up the rest of the house.
