The most well-designed spaces will always have something to say about the people who live or work in them.

Hello, I’m Terry Walsh, an experienced and passionate interior designer. I travel extensively around New Zealand to consult in all areas of design across a range of budgets. 

I understand that engaging the services of an interior designer can be a little daunting for those who have never done so, but it is my aim to make the process as easy and relaxed as possible. 

My strengths lay in having an understated style as well as the ability to create spaces that feel user-friendly, comfortable and luxurious. As I don’t focus on having a ‘signature look’ or what is currently on trend, the result is a design will never feel outdated and is unique and special to each individual client.    

Design comes very naturally to me and I love listening to clients tell me about what they would like to achieve. It is also enjoyable helping people discover products and finishes they may never have imagined but are delighted to incorporate into their home or business - including bespoke furniture, materials and fittings.  

And while it is exciting to start with a blank canvas, I relish in the opportunity to blend in much-loved furniture or cherished items. After all, these are what make a home.

My Design Process


Design consultation:

This is a very relaxed initial meeting to discuss what may be required and for me to take an informal brief. I’ll have some questions to ask so I can put together a scope of the potential work to undertake and a proposed fee. 

Planning & design direction:

Once the project is confirmed, I co-ordinate all of the planning and direction of the design through regular and detailed meetings on site - with either the lead builder or selected sub-trades. Depending on the scale of the project, I will also meet with you weekly.

Project quoting & ordering:

I arrange quotes for all products/materials that are specified, from bespoke flooring to artisan tiles, custom cabinetry, feature light fittings, tailored furniture pieces, window treatments and selected plumbing fixtures. I also complete ordering as required.


I take great pride when it comes to final furniture placement and installation. From working in new items with existing pieces, to ensuring the end result looks seamless - it’s the icing on the cake and a speciality of mine.
