I cannot praise this Company enough, from my original meeting and having no idea at all what I wanted, and by just giving them my colour scheme from the external to the interior of the house the concept that was presented to me was excellent and worked in very well. I'm very happy with choosing Emme Designs as I now have a home that I love not just a house.
Leanne - Mickleham
Emmy helped us with various interior (and a few exterior) design aspects for our extension, including choosing paint colours, floor finishes, lighting, bathroom fittings, stairway design.
She came to our house and spent maybe 1 1/2 hours looking at our plans, and discussing what we were after and the kind of designs that we liked. Within about 2 weeks she had a well presented and bound report and colour board ready and came out again to go through it with us.
We were very happy with all of the choices that she had made and the way that the information was presented. I had some follow up questions and Emmy reponded very quickly to these. Given the work Emmy did I thought the price was pretty reasonable.
We didn't end up proceeding with our extension, so I can't really say how Emmy's suggestions worked out, but I'm pretty confident that it would have looked great. There was really only one thing that we implemented for part of the existing house (window paint colour), which did look very good.
We would definitely consider Emmy for any similar future work we will do.
Michael - Eltham
Emmy has exceptional customer service and I really love her ideas. My home has improved dramatically since she has been helping me . I am very proud of the way it looks now.
Norma - Blackburn
We hired Emme Designs to help with our 80's house renovation. We didn't know where to start but thankfully Emmy had many ideas and was able to guide us in the right direction.
With her expertise she helped create a fresh new interior to our home which has totally transformed it making it look brand new while still maintaining some of the character of the original interior.
Emmy was able to narrow down material choices, colours, tiles, floorboards, carpet, finishes on cabinetry etc and made the whole process seem easy.
She introduced us to her very capable and professional team of tradesmen, who were able to renovate around our family while we lived in the house.
Emmy constantly kept us updated throughout the renovation, with site meetings, emails and phone calls. She was very friendly and professional and understood the products that would work for us within our budget.
We are very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend emme designs.
Melinda - Wantirna South
We had been thinking about renovating our kitchen for a few years, had a lot of ideas but just couldn’t pull it altogether, so after a bit or research we engaged Emmy. Not only did Emmy design an amazing kitchen, she opened the living areas and entrance making the whole front of the house flow. Emmy really listen to me, my ideas & requirements, and designed me functional kitchen that complemented the adjoining family lounge and stone fire place. Thank you.
Jayne - Nunawading
We've just completed an entire transformation of our home with Emme Designs and we couldn't be happier. From start to finish, Emme listened carefully to what we wanted to achieve and the end result is almost a brand new home that we absolutely love and can't wait to get home to every day. Our Formal Living / Family Room, Retreat, Study and Master Bedroom have received an "Emme make-over" and we're now planning for "whats next". We would highly recommend Emme to anyone who needs interior design. Emme is very personable and attentive to your expectations and is truly focussed on making certain the end result is perfect.
Paula & Craig - Lysterfield
We recently built a new home and felt very daunted by the prospect of furnishing it. Emmy not only made it simple, she made it enjoyable. She managed the process for us from start to finish and was so flexible and accommodating and we are delighted with the results. Emmy uses local manufacturers so we were able to have some custom pieces and she worked closely with our builder to ensure most of the furniture was ready when we moved in. Highly recommended!

I have been absolutely thrilled with the results I have achieved working with Emme designs. We have worked room by room to transform each space into an area where I love being (see below for 'before' and 'after' photos of the bathroom and hallway). Emmy has always taken into account my taste and budget to guide me in a direction which has achieved results beyond my expectation. She is always friendly, available and prompt and never pushed me to make a decision before I was ready. After seeing my results a number of my friends (and neighbours!) have now engaged Emmy on their own projects too.
Jane - Middle Camberwell
I can’t thank Emmy from Emme designs enough for been there from the start of my house extension project to the end helping me with interior design decisions every step of the way which was facilitated by been so approachable and easy to get along with. Emmy spent time with me to get a feel and understand what I liked and didn’t like and guided me all the way, providing various options from tiles, light fittings, rugs, curtains, furniture, paintings, vases, cushions, and so much more. Emmy designed the fireplace and TV cabinetry and helped me visualise the finished product by producing coloured 3D drawings showing all the detail including finishes. Thanks to you Emmy, I love walking through my front door everyday as I love the spaces you helped create for my family and I. A huge thanks once again.
Eli & Frank - Surrey Hills
I would like to give Emmy a great big thankyou for her professionalism, ongoing assistance and her wonderful team of contractors who together gave new life to my home. I had been struggling for some time trying to select the interior and exterior house paint colours, carpets., lights and blinds - it was difficult to see the big picture. Understanding its a big outlay of finances I wanted to make the right decision.
Then along came Emmy.
Emmy initially met with me to view the home and hear my ideas. In no time Emmy presented her plans along with samples, colour suggestions while all the time working with my individual style. I now have a home that is a joy to live and socialise in as well as now being enduring.
Jenni - Camberwell
We contacted Emmy after meeting with other designers who weren’t quite what we were looking for. From our first meeting we were comfortable that Emmy was listening to us and had plenty of ideas to offer. We had a house that hadn’t been touched since it was built in the early 80s. It was in need of a major update, including some changes to internal walls to make more efficient use of space. We had a layout sketch and a list of ideas, but that was about it. After consultation, Emmy came to us with a presentation which included detailed plans, room concepts, finish and accessory ideas and material samples. This gave our project a tangible end-result which excited us.
Emmy arranged a builder and tradesmen who were easy to work with and did a great job. She kept us regularly updated about the project, including the schedule and the work behind the scenes. Unforseen problems are inevitable in a project of this scale, and the few that arose were dealt with quickly and without fuss. The whole project took around 12 months as we chose to live in the house while the work went on around us. Thanks to the friendly and understanding builder together with Emmy’s enthusiastic encouragement, the time spent “living in a building site” seemed to pass quickly.
The end result exceeded our expectations… the house is liveable, comfortable and a delight to look at. It is a year since the project was completed, and still every day I look around the house and smile. I have no hesitation in recommending Emmy for a major house update.
John - Mitcham
Emmy at emme designs was wonderful. She listened and understood my preferences; had creative ideas; remained mindful of my budget at all times, suggesting various options to keep costs down. Emmy has a lovely sense of style and has fabulous flair. Her manners and professionalism are second to none. She is prompt and I highly recommend her.
Sarah - Mt Waverley
We hired Emme designs to decorate our penthouse and were very pleased with the results. Before proceeding , with her company, Emmy put our minds at ease by preparing a folio, showing us various materials, colour palette and fabric swatches to be used for our project.
Emmy was very professional, communicated well, and was easy to talk to, understanding exactly what we liked…eg. we opted for a minimalist modern decor, for furniture ,T.V. cabinet, study nook etc. She had good contacts, and knew exactly where to source everything from, therefore saving us heaps.
Emmy was very reliable and always kept her appointments on time.
We highly recommend her for her knowledge and experience.
Rose - Doncaster
We recently moved into a new office and had an idea of how to go about decorating it, but no clue where to start and what to take into consideration. We engaged emmy designs and she immediately came up with colour ideas that complemented our logo (displayed in the reception) and worked on our thoughts and came up with a variety of suggestions for us to select from. Now we have lovely prints on all walls and lovely upholstered chairs that blend in nicely with the unique shape of our reception area and upholstery to match our colour theme.
This was all done within a quick timeline and within our budget . What a life saver Emmy is! We are so grateful for her services and could not more highly recommend her for any home / office or other commercial interior design and fitout.
Tony - Doncaster East
Emme Designs has given my home a sophisticated and elegant look. Friendly and always available. Emmy understood from the beginning what I was after and with her experience and guidance we have achieved a stunning looking family home. Thank you Emmy.
Priscilla - Heidelberg
We employed Emmy Designs to help us decorate our new home. It was a large home - we knew what we wanted, a relaxed and calm feel, but had no idea how to go about it. From the first meeting with Emmy we felt at home with her. After her presentation, we definitely knew we had the right person. She had listened to all our ideas and hopes and she had amalgamated them beautifully. She provided lots of design ideas and practical solutions. Her contacts for furniture and upholstery were excellent. The whole process was fully explained and stress free. Emmy goes above and beyond, to make sure her clients are very happy with the completed project.
We also had Emmy give us design advice, to stage our previous house for sale. The results got rave reviews from the Real Estate Agents and all that viewed.
We would highly recommend Emme Designs. Emmy is extremely pleasant and easy to work with, she takes great pride in her work and this shows in the end results.
Donna & John - Croydon
Thank you Emmy for transforming my home.
I put the new linen on the new bed and with the new cushions and customed chair the bedroom is looking amazing. I also spent a rainy Sunday lying on the lounge with the fire on and thought how fantastic it is all looking. The bookshelves look great as well.
Thank you for going to so much trouble sourcing all the bits and pieces as they certainly suit me as a person and I know you would have put a lot of thought into their selections.
Thank you for all you help – I am so happy with the result and am just loving the place.
Ralph - Box Hill
Both Peter and I can’t thank you enough for everything. We really had no idea of how to get started and what to do, but you helped us through every step of the way. The end result is a lovely, warm home which we can all enjoy.
You were flexible with our availability, which is great, and I think very patient! Would highly recommend you! Thanks again.
Dina & Peter - Cheltenham
emme designs was incredible. From start to finish it was evident that she displays the utmost professionalism in her work and service. Exceptional responsiveness that I recommend to others without hesitation. Many thanks.
Richard - Glen Waverley
Can't thank you enough for your hard work and patience. Sue and I are very happy with the whole theme. I would like to say that you have been absolutely outstanding, totally professional in all respects. During this whole process of getting plans drawn, meeting builders etc i can honestly say that (apart from our builder), Sue and i were convinced that good old fashioned customer service was dead and buried. You have restored our faith, thank you.
Graham & Sue - Mont Albert
I was feeling totally overwhelmed by the thought of renovating my house on my own and the meetings I had had with a variety of designers and tradespeople had not relieved my anxieties. However when I first met with Emmy I instantly felt that we were ‘on the same page’. She provided me with a plan for my house which I could work towards in my own time, and I didn’t feel at all pushed. The design concepts were perfect and I really appreciated Emmy’s thorough project management throughout the whole process. Emmy kept me up to date at all times throughout the renovations and I felt completely comfortable to ask her any questions or make any requests along the way. The result is that I now have a house I am proud to invite friends to. I couldn’t recommend Emmy highly enough to anyone looking to update their home – however big or small their project is.
Jane - Camberwell
We recently had a whole house interior renovation by Emme Designs. From initial concept design, and then overseeing of the implementation phase of the renovation, Emmy was with us every step of the way; listening to our needs, troubleshooting any problems and making things happen to deadline. And now, we have moved into a place that I never dreamed could be this perfect for our needs as a family - and spot on with our initial brief. Thank you Emmy - We love our new home.
Emma - Lower Templestowe
I have really enjoyed working with Emme to help me update and fit out my living room, dining room, hallway and home office. She is extremely personable, patient, passionate and nothing is ever too much trouble. She takes the time to listen and understand the person (and family) she is working with. I have tried a few other designers before and I found that they weren't as practical or as flexible in their approach as Emme. I look forward to continuing to work with Emme on the rest of my house.
Katherine - Doncaster
I thank you very much for all the support and assistance provided by you to make our house look like a beautiful home. I really appreciate all your inputs and the time you’ve put in to fulfil our dream.
It is because of you that we achieved our dream.
Ranjeeta - Mulgrave
We are about to undertake a major renovation of our property. We engaged Emmy of Emme Designs to assist us with a colour scheme, for both the interior and exterior of the house, and to give us suggestions on the overall finishes, including window and floor treatments and furniture options.
Emmy spent considerable time with us initially, so that she could get a clear sense of our style and requirements. She then put together a colour board and a presentation book, that detailed our house from top to toe. We were delighted with the outcome - Emmy nailed it perfectly! We now have a fantastic template to work from and have Emmy as a wonderful resource for our ongoing work. We can’t recommend her more highly.
Colin & Helen - Vermont
I wish to formally acknowledge your remarkable professionalism and attention to detail which was only matched by your passion to create a spectacular ,but affordable, environment for my family and business.
It was a journey I can say was both exciting ad obviously rewarding for you as you so shared my vision with equal enthusiasm.
You are a true credit to your profession and I can now say with confidence that you are also now my friend.
Continued success in your future projects.
Kathy - St Kilda Road, Melbourne
After a couple of failed attempts at finding the right interior designer, l called Emme Designs. I was relieved to finally find an interior designer who took a holistic approach and was passionate even about the finest details.
Emme Designs developed a design concept for each room, complete with samples showing how the colours and textures would come together, and then once these were agreed, did absolutely everything we needed to implement. From the stone bench and colour cabinetry in the kitchen, to the curtains, rugs, cushions, lounge suite, dining table, upholstery on the chairs, taps, basins, fireplace, lead lighting, etc, Emme Designs managed the end to end process and many times, went well and truly beyond to ensure we received a fantastic result. They sourced the suppliers, provided samples, purchased the materials, arranged and met suppliers at our home to install, and dealt with any supplier issues as and when they came up. Emmy was also lovely and fun to chat with throughout the process.
For a busy, working family with a young child, Emme Designs was the perfect service for us. Not only could we completely outsource the entire job, we also got a high quality result that we couldnt have got without the knowledge, contacts and energy that Emme Designs brought to the project. Emme Designs completely transformed our home from a period, country style to a home with a period exterior and a fresh, modern and contemporary interior.
Fiona - Northcote
Thank you for the task of meeting our requirements. The colours, style and ease of movement in the home is great. Everyone loves it too.
Rosemary and Margaret - Mt Waverley
Thank you so much for all you have done in relation to curtains and furnishings for our room... I know it is still not complete, but a lot better than it was. I will be in touch in a few weeks regarding the other furnishings. Thank you again.
Margaret - Lower Templestowe
We used Emme to help us with all of the decoration and design of our bathrooms and laundry and for paint and carpet colours for our new home. She worked with us and advised on everything from the initial design and layout to the products, vanities, toilets, basins, tap ware, tiles etc she then sourced all of the materials that we chose to use and found us the best prices. Initially I was so confused and overwhelmed, I didn’t know where to start before we found Emme. But the whole process was so easy and came together beautifully. She has a great eye for what worked together, right down to the small details. I didn’t even have to leave my home, which was great as I have small children.
Very happy and would use again.
Jay - Vermont
Finally, nearly all finished at home. All looking good. It has all turned out well... understated, tasteful and modern... so very happy.
