Mi Designer Styling

Mi Designer is a Sydney based design firm specialising in Interior Design, Property Styling and Pre sale Makeovers. We provide a personalised experience for our clients based upon their specific property requirements.

Our team of creative professionals understand that a new build, renovation or property sale can be a daunting experience, so our focus is to guide you smoothly through the process to provide an enjoyable journey from initial consultation to completion. We have a passion for designing and space planning kitchens, bathrooms and dressing rooms.

When it comes to kitchen design both Sarah and Lucy love the spatial planning, working out the best layout for your individual use and finding a location for everything from the Thermomix to the cocktail shaker. You’ll have more space and be more organised in your new kitchen you will wonder why you didn’t make the upgrade sooner.

Sarah our founder loves creating master-suites, approaching each project as an opportunity to provide a retreat for her clients…a space that is uniquely their own, a haven to diffuse after a busy day. Imagine walking from your beautiful calm bedroom into your custom walk in robe or dressing room then sliding seamlessly into your dream ensuite. Breathe, doesn’t life seem easier this way.

Our design approach is driven by our fierce love of interiors and our desire to create unique, inviting spaces that evoke a strong emotional response from you, our client. We believe a successful design is based upon providing solutions that are both functionally driven, whilst being tailored to reflect your individual aesthetic. This process encompasses our passion for design and commitment to building relationships with our clients, architects, tradesmen, suppliers & installers. We work collaboratively through every step of the process to provide a polished result that suits your family and budget. Luxury is a state of mind and we can create a home that is deliciously luxurious on any budget.

Our ideal clients are dedicated professionals looking for a turn-key bespoke design solution and to create a home to enhance and uplift their lifestyle and home life. Although we are based in Sydney we work nationally and state wide. We’ve had great fun and thrived on projects from as far north as the Northern Territory, to the neighbouring suburbs of Greenwich. We are always open to discuss projects that might take us interstate or overseas.

We have renovated a couple of boutique lodges in Potts Point and Randwick and really enjoyed the hospitality space, we are being asked more and more to provide advice on Airbnb properties and so this has become another feather in our bow – we love thinking about the end user, the guests and how to uplift their stay with easy and cost effective conveniences – its the small details that have the biggest impact and get the good reviews flowing.

One of our current projects is a stunning architecturally designed holiday home spread over two levels perched on the hill over looking the spectacular ocean views at Nambucca Heads on NSW north coast. We love the site visits to this beachside hamlet. Keep an eye out for images on Instagram as we compete the project. Our current wish list of projects are an alpine lodge, a day spa and small resort. So if you happen to know anyone looking for a design team for these projects – shoot them our details

In the meantime, grab a glass of wine or coffee (depending time of day) and enjoy browsing. If you are ready to get your project started then what are you waiting for, complete our engaging questionnaire and lets get chatting.

We can’t wait to meet you.
