Thank you for joining me as I share my passion for interior design incorporating a holistic approach and environmental awareness.
I believe having a beautiful welcoming home should be accessible to everyone. By carefully working with what you already love, adding new touches and elements that are affordable and considerate of the environment where possible.
What makes Kerry Kingston Design unique...
I pride myself on being down to earth and approachable. I will listen to your needs and provide honest advice and a design and costing that works for you.
I love to source unique items at the best prices for my clients. This includes working with new build interior selections, redesigns or refreshing current decor.
Completion of NZQA Design qualifications awarded me with average grade of A+. I have an eye for detail and a clear vision (my own new home was planned out and everything had a place before we even moving in!) which allows me to know immediately what works, both aesthetically and practically.
Finding beauty in the smallest of things from nature to fashion, food and travel destinations, I have a humble consistent approach combined with good organisational skills to meet deadlines.
Having a background in business with qualifications in Business, Management and Public Relations has given me a good grounding and approach for running my own business. Time working as a flight attendant for Air New Zealand where listening and putting customer satisfaction first is how I continue to operate.
I love classic timeless style with a personal touch, helping to make your home the best version it can be, and a place you will be proud to share.
I have an interest in the general wellbeing of the space we reside, and can offer a holistic approach incorporating essential oils, crystals, basic Feng Shui and de-cluttering advice. I consider the environment in my design choices where possible and will offer my clients a range of supplier options that support this approach.
What other people have to say...
Kerry, I am so glad I found you! Your help was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciated the practical help with layout sketches for an akward open space. Love the beautiful mood board! I'm pleased you noticed other things in the house to put it all together. Thanks for the help in actually finding pieces and the prices! Just the very practical help I needed to get started.
I cannot wait to see you again for my next project! - April 2018
