Meet Josie Simpson, the owner and creative force behind Altus Design Studio.


"I have an absolute passion for designing with colour, texture and pattern, it's what ignites my creative spark and keeps me awake at night, in a good way!"


"When designing a space I often think in colour from the outset. Colour doesn't have to be a crazy riot (although that can be truly fabulous) rather I use it in various hues, tones and intensities as an expression of your personality to create a fabulous space.  


I like to think outside the box and challenge pre-conceived notions of a space and how flow and function of a space can be optimised and truly enjoyed. Good design should withstand the test of time."
