Sue James offers professional advice, practical and enduring design solutions to achieve unique interiors which reflect your identity and life style. However you want to express it.

Favourite quote: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” - William Morris.

Where do we start?

Firstly let’s talk, for which there is no cost or obligation. 

Tip: For inspiration turn to the internet (I suggest Houzz.com.nz or Pinterest) and make up an online scrap book. It helps you pin down your style and helps me enormously to understand your taste.

Secondly: Based on discussions I will put a together a loose concept scheme, colour, furnishing options, and some hard finishes.

Once that is agreed in principle I will hone the scheme, adding the details, including those all-important costings.

Jamesjames Design manufacture bed coverings, curtains, blinds, and restores favourite furniture pieces, overseeing all work through to installation and sourcing furniture from overseas and NZ factories as well as art, rugs, wall coverings, flooring, kitchen and bathroom finishes, and lighting.

It’s been just over 20 years since I started working in this creative field of primarily domestic interior design and light commercial projects.

To keep life interesting I recently completed a bachelor’s degree in fine arts majoring in Printmaking, specialising not surprisingly in various forms of textile printing.
