aka ‘The Queen of Colour’
At least that’s the name that seems to have stuck!
In reality I feel I’ve worn as many hats as times I’ve moved house (35 at last count).
ALEX THE SCIENTIST
As a child I had two great loves: art and science. I dreamed of becoming a doctor but even after completing a nursing course and then a science degree, my artistic side was still itching to be let free.
ALEX THE ARTIST
I’ve led quite a transient life so making a home within four walls became my thing. I’ve been through many design phases, but a love use of colour always stuck. Around 10 years ago I started a company that created graphics on canvas and the design seed was planted. I’ve never looked back since!
ALEX THE EXPERT
In designing the perfect spaces for my clients I’ve also designed my perfect life.
As well as working one-on-one, I like to get around in design town…
As a brand ambassador for Dulux NZ, I’m part of their United by Style panel – bringing colour
forecasts to life (and creating some pretty way out designs for events and launches, too!)
I’m a regular contributor to Your Home and Garden Magazine
I was a guest judge on The Block NZ in 2013 & 2015
My work has been featured in HOME Magazine, Abode,
Habitat and Homestyle magazines, NZ Herald and Apartment Therapy
I was a Dulux Colour Awards Finalist two years in a row and won the
People’s Choice Award at the 2011 Dine by Design Competition
BUT THE BIGGEST LESSON I'VE EVER LEARNT IS
Be dynamic. Be original. Be yourself.
I love nothing more than working with inspired souls like you,
turning the images in your mind into reality and colouring you happy.
aka ‘Shop Keeper Extraordinaire’
Rae has been working in the Marlborough based AFD Store since March 2015. She's come from a customer focused background with very little experiance in the design world, but don't let that fool you as she has taken to design like a duck to water. She can now spout on for days about NZ designers, the latest hot products, and some spicy tips for making your house a home. She's shown a natural talent with product styling and merchandising and has become my right hand women for photographing our in-store sets for our online store. The design force is strong in this one.
aka ‘Office Guru’
Wendy is our office based angel that sorts, organises, bosses, whips, encourages and controls us all. She is the voice of reason and has learnt to laugh at my jokes as well as being able to crack a whip and tells me to 'get on with it'. She came on board in March 2015 and has worked like a trojan to sort 10 years of filing, accounting and boring bits into a smooth well oiled machine. She has made it possible for me to get back focusing on the side of my business that I love - design. She doesn't bat an eye lid at any request and is always up for some good office goss and a giggle.
She's a pocket rocket and she's ALL OURS.
