Creating spaces in which people love to live, work and play
Having qualified as a Professional Interior Designer through the National Design Academy UK in 2008, Sharon also completed Anne Maurice's "House Doctor" training in London in 2014. She has now returned to South Africa after 7 years in Prague, Czechia and 3 in Nairobi, Kenya.
With a penchant for creating energised, happy spaces in which people love to live, work and play, Sharon engages her clients easily, helping to crystalise their dream before designing the interior around her client’s lifestyle and budget. Skilfully optimising light, space and function, Sharon injects a "Wow" factor and a pop of sensory delight into even the dreariest of places.
Always conscious of the “genius loci” or spirit of a place, Sharon has transformed homes, corporate accommodation, offices, golf lodges and a boutique hotel - in Prague, London, Nairobi, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Let her do the same for you, adding value to your investment and joy to your home!

Off–Plan interior design
For new builds or show units, we design off plan maximising light, space and function. Our early involvement will ensure a clean, coherent look exuding warmth and a “Wow” factor. Smart purchasing and skilful installation means reduced budget wastage. The perceived value of finished product has proven to far exceed the cost. Optional extra: Project management; Full furnishing, fit-out and equipping (FF&;E).
You need to love where and how you live! Implementing “House Doctor” techniques Sharon can transform the dullest of places into a bright and happy space. Want improved quality of life? Or a better sale price? Sharon will create magic on a budget, incorporating the items you already have, adding simple touches and special new items to create a fab new look! Don't move - improve!
Hospitality upgrades and training
As an AirBnB Super Host and former SA Host Lead trainer for THETA, Sharon offers guesthouse owners interior decor consultations to help maximise their guests’ experience at every “touch point” from arrival to departure. Optional extra: hospitality training for management and staff. A positive guest experience translates into great reviews and more bookings at higher rates.
