“Words cannot adequately express my appreciation for the fairy dust you have sprinkled around our home. You truly are gifted at what you do – you are a designer with a stylish flair…. But you also ‘get’ the reality of family life. We will forever be grateful for how you transformed our home.” Jennifer
“We are so fortunate to have worked with Josie on our renovation. Josie was involved early and was able to optimise the layouts provided by the architect, resulting in the right mix of practicality and style. Josie’s ‘hands on’ approach made the journey stress free, even our builder raves about her. The result is nothing short of amazing, we highly recommend Josie!" Mitch and Abby
"Josie provided us with an outstanding service throughout the project, from interpreting our wishes at the start to translating them into different design options for us to consider. She listened throughout, built on our suggestions, and ultimately came up with a new master plan for our house that we love. Her engaging approach combined with her styling knowledge and her technical design skills made her a real pleasure to deal with. We’d highly recommend her to everyone that we know.” Chris.
"We were lucky enough to have Josie’s expert guidance and assistance when we bought a new house and made a few changes to it before moving in. From paint colours, to lighting suggestions, to window coverings, to furniture selections, Josie did it all - and our house is so fabulous as a result. There were so many aspects to working with Josie that I enjoyed not least of which was her ability to read her customers. My husband and I aren’t the type to ponder for days over design decisions - we loved that Josie would narrow suggestions down to 2 or 3 choices that we could make a quick decision about. But at the same time I knew there was a whole lot of back work she was doing behind the scenes to narrow down those choices for us. Josie was responsive, incredibly efficient, budget conscious and an absolute delight to work with. Her eye for colour and style yet functionality is amazing. I wander around our house now and marvel at all the “Josie touches”. I don’t want to imagine what the house would be like without them!" Kate and Lee.
"I chose Josie from Altus Design Studio firstly, because I love her personal style.
Josie was able to help me see an overall vision for design to fit with who we are and how we live as a family. Her knowledge and experience were invaluable in bringing together existing pieces with new contemporary furnishings to complete the project, which is both beautiful and functional.
Her focus on detail, problem solving and her ability to manage a budget ensured that our project was expertly delivered. Thank you Josie." Sharon.
