What Is Interior Styling?

An Interior Stylist works with you to make your house a home. Interior styling is about styling a room so that it looks as good as it possibly can while still being functional and expressing your taste.

Are You An Interior Designer?

We are not an Interior Design Service.

An Interior Stylist is generally more affordable than an interior designer and provides a more “hands on” and practical design service.

Interior Stylist and Interior Designer are different services.  An Interior Stylist helps you to desing a space, source furniture and accessories to dress a room to its greatest potential (generally on an hourly rate).  An Interior Designer provides an in-depth plan for execution of your design aspirations literally from the floor boards up (generally starting at around $5000).

How much does it cost to hire an Interior Stylist?

Our Interior Styling  starts with a free discovery call and then option to then book an initial consultation for $320.00 for a 2-hour meeting in your  home or via Zoom for clients outside of the Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas. We offer our interior styling service Australia wide.

Your Interior Stylist then works on a prepaid block hourly rate to design and source furnishings and decor via our exclusive network of trade designer furniture brands.  Your consultant’s hourly rate is charged in 5-hour blocks, and it will generally take 10-15 hours per room to source everything for your new look.

We also offer E Design for non full service Interior Styling.

How long does an Interior Styling project take?

On average a residential Interior Styling project can take between 3-14 months.  This is dependent on your time frame of selections, choices of furniture options, stock availability and transport/delivery time frames.

Unfortunately it doesn’t take a week or weekend like it does on TV.

E Design takes 14-21 days per a area.

Can I come shopping with you?

Part of the benefit of working with a interior styling company is our access to exclusive trade showrooms and ‘before it hits the market’ design.  This means our suppliers will only permit your home styling consultant to take a peek beyond the showroom doors.  We do provide you with plenty of images of the beautiful items we find.  Grab a wine and browse our carefully curated selections.  What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon!

What are your payment terms?

We require full payment via direct debit prior to work commencing.

Does Stagency service areas outside Brisbane?

Thanks to Zoom, we are able to organise interior styling Australia-wide with the client implementing the final room install with our guidance remotely.

We currently work with a Perth client so anything is possible!

What if you can’t find the right piece for my room?

It hasn’t happened yet, so this is a hard one to answer!  We can access the gold circle of modern interior design.  Our suppliers are hand-selected for taste, on-trend design and quality.  We work hard to identify the perfect piece – and even to spoil you for choice.
