My husband & I engaged Annabel to help us with colour, furniture, lighting & styling for our new home with fabulous results. We cannot praise Annabel enough for the outstanding service & follow-up. We had so much fun with Annabel & Meghan, lots of laughs & fabulous ideas for feature wallpapers, furniture options, lights etc.
Annabel & Megan are not only awesome interior designers but are creative and can make headboards, lightshades etc . They have access to the most up-to-date products, furniture, and colour ranges . We never felt under any pressure to go with their suggestions or buy a particular product. We had confidence in their suppliers and loved the booklets Annabel produced herself with furniture, colour etc.
We would thoroughly recommend Annabel & Meghan as interior designers, to anyone doing renovations or a new build.

Annabel and Meghan were incredibly easy to work with, with outstanding results. They exceeded expectations again and again, with their availability, creative solutions, style and openness to problem solving. They opened their contacts, regularly recommending great people who delivered superbly on other parts of the job. Professional and great listeners and all at a very reasonable price. I could not rate them more highly and am happy to show anyone around my commercial space to let you see for yourself, the awesome job they delivered so exceptionally well.

‘We built a new home this year and engaged Design Federation for both interior and exterior design advice. Without a doubt this was the best money we spent on the whole build. Annabel made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. She has a knack for putting colours together and sourced the most amazing items for us. We love every bit of our new home and wouldn’t change a thing. Highly recommended!’

We engaged the lovely Annabel and Meghan at Design Federation to help us with our new home colour selection, drapes and blinds. They took the stress right out of choosing our interior design style and gave us a professional and detailed presentation with options for colours and fabric choices which were exactly the look we had hoped to achieve. They liaised with the tradies to ensure everyone understood our selections and made sure everything was finished on time and within budget to an amazing standard.

Annabel and Meghan where just amazing to work with on the interior of my new home. They were able to pull together my thoughts and their interior design expertise into a stunning warm colour combination of paint and wallpapers which I just love.

Annabel and Meghan have been so much fun to work with. I wanted to give our house a total makeover and didn’t know where to start. Annabel came up with suggestions for colour schemes, one neutral and one with bolder colour choices. I went with the bolder choices and am thrilled with the result.
Annabel organised the painter and his team to come and within a week the whole interior was transformed and the standard of workmanship was excellent. I was out of town most of the time and Annabel kept in touch with regular updates.
I highly recommend the work of Design Federation to anyone wanting a hassle free and fun decorating experience.

I love working with colours and furnishings, so I was a little apprehensive about getting help when I started working on the interior of our new house.
However, when I approached the girls at Design Federation, I quickly realised that Annabel and Meghan were the perfect fit to work alongside me to achieve the look and feel we wanted for our home.
The Design Federation girls are great at asking the right questions to understand the personalities of different family members and gauge what is required in the various spaces throughout the home.
Annabel and Meghan’s knowledge saved me a lot of time, as I didn’t have to spend hours rifling through samples – after asking the necessary questions, they were able to give me several options to choose from which made things so much easier!
Best of all I enjoyed working with these energetic and passionate girls, who I’m sure treat every home as if it is their own, having a lot of laughs along the way.
Whether you want a bit of assistance with a small renovation, or to create a stylish look throughout a whole house, I highly recommend working with the girls at Design Federation.
