Donna is a Professional Member of the Designers Institute of New Zealand (PDINZ).

Donna studied full-time at Inchbald School of Design in London (affiliated with the University of Wales), and graduated in 2002 with a PGDIP in Architectural Interior Design.  She is one of a few New Zealanders to have received this qualification from this prestigious design school.

Working in Europe…

After graduation, Donna chose to stay in the UK to take advantage of exciting work opportunities.  These included a 50-room Spanish Hunting Lodge (formerly owned by the King of Spain, now owned by a member of British Aristocracy), conversion of a redundant 18th century church into a contemporary home, and the design of a child’s playroom for the children of a Saudi Prince.

Back in New Zealand

Donna returned to NZ in 2005, and quickly established herself as an Interior Designer with a difference – her design philosophy being ‘Classic Design with a Twist’. 

She works with a deep knowledge of the principles and elements of Interior Design, and believes it is her professional responsibility to keep abreast of new product and innovations.  Her skill in asking a client the right questions, and turning their dreams into reality is only possible by her ability to listen.   Strong follow through and documentation support her work practice.  Please see client testimonials under ‘Projects’ on her web page.

Donna provides her clients a full interior design service throughout New Zealand from her base in Auckland.  Please see her website for a full description of the Services she provides.
