Hi BHH Followers

Hi BHH Followers! Hi I’m Lisa the Co-Founder and Senior Interior Designer here at BHH.



I wanted to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me. I’ve always had a love for design and property. When I was 8 years old I remember my parents spending many weekends scouring through floor plans, walking through endless display homes (with me happily in tow) never being able to find the perfect home that ticked all their boxes… so many options yet none of them suited their particular lifestyle or tastes. Specialist builders weren’t really a big thing then it was very much Project Builder heaven… or hell if you were my parents!

 

Little did I know that my experiences as a young child and educating myself in the property industry, would lead me to where I am today. Whilst my little friends were out playing in their yard, I was happily tagging along with my mum and dad looking at countless homes. This is weird for an 8 year old considering when I look at my almost 8 year old son now, his comments when looking through homes or prize homes is “oh are you serious, why do we have to look through another home this is sooo boring….are we moving again?!”.. whinge, whinge, whinge. 

 

Yep it indeed is something that only a passionate 8 year old would love doing – but that was me, and now I look back at this I realise it was my destiny to become an Interior Designer, marry a Carpenter and start our own business specialising in Individually Designed New Homes and large scale Renovations! The perfect life really!

 

When I left school I spent 4 years at an Advertising Firm then moved onto working in Media for a further 6 years before leaving to have my first child. After having my son (yes he’s the bored almost 8 year old) I went back to work 7 weeks later at a Real Estate agency putting together their marketing. As fate would have it 18 months later I was made redundant which gave me the golden pass I needed to finally pursue my dream of practising Interior Design and thanks to my supportive husband. I was able to complete my Diploma in Interior Design and Home Staging with flying colours (excuse the pun) and thus my new career of Interior Design imploded.. I haven’t looked back!

 

Now 6 years, a beautiful daughter later and many many houses later, I still look forward to every new project I am privileged to work on including our own personal projects. Reflecting on one’s own entity ensures each home we work on is created and tailored towards that particular client (keeping resale top of mind too) ensuring every project is unlike any other and completely unique.

 

I love my job – my clients can feel my passion when they talk to me about their project…. To me it’s not really a job, I take it very personally and put myself in my clients’ shoes, offering them advice to achieve their particular desired outcome. I’m not about to give my clients a box of options - to me the options are endless, and it’s my role to offer my clients as many ideas until they get exactly what they want, within budget of course! I always tell my budget conscious clients this… it doesn’t have to be expensive to look amazing – I have worked with small and large budgets and I haven’t had a client not blown away by the end result yet! I’ve even had several clients cry they were so happy with their homes! That’s a compliment to both the interior design and of course the talented builder!

 

Until next time, enjoy life and don’t be afraid to follow your dreams! cool
