Sophie Brake - Director, Dip. Interior Design.

I was born and raised in Rotorua, New Zealand. From a young age I knew my passion for Interior Design and always took interest in looking at why and how things such as colours, spaces and textures work together. I went on to study Interior Design, and whilst working in the industry, decided I wanted to take on the challenge of creating my own company which reflects my style and personality.

My design preference is simple, fresh and timeless. I love the use of repurposed or recycled materials that are a glimpse of how life used to be, in all projects, where possible, I search for natural and sustainable resources to enhance the beauty and uniqueness of each project. In renovations I advocate for preserving and highlighting the character of each home. I prefer to keep things original and one of a kind. My passion is to create functional rooms that inspire and encourage others to own their space. I strongly believe that good design enhances your quality of life, and when working with a client want an outcome that reflects their personality, style and lifestyle, while also acknowledging the practical aspects of interior decorating, such as planning, and budgeting.

In between running my own Interior Design business, I also handle the administration side of our Plumbing and Drainlaying business, a household full of tiny humans, and caring for four legged friends on our lifestyle block.
