Testimonials

“Carmen was recommended to me and now having used her services I know why she is so well thought of locally and across the South Island. Carmen has a refreshing and candid approach and will work with you as the client to get an outcome that works from both a style and budget perspective. The end result is brilliant !!! Her knowledge across the spectrum of interior requirements is extensive and invaluable. I can’t thank her enough for her patience and assistance and can’t wait to build again with her assistance”

“Carmen designed and supplied all the furniture for my two residences in Queenstown, Jagged Edge and the Guest House. Carmen’s designs were complementary to the unique design of the homes, and as the two residences had vastly different design themes, Carmen had to design the furniture specifically for each house which she did very well.
Carmen’s pricing was cost effective and the quality of the furniture was of a very high standard. Any problems or defects that we did have were quickly rectified by Carmen. Her after sales service is exceptional and she goes out of her way to help you out.
Carmen’s only fault is her fondness for Miele vacuum cleaners and those silly toasters that don’t pop up and always burn your toast.”

“Three years on I’m still absolutely thrilled with Carmens work I wouldn’t change a thing. I found her to be very professional and she listened to any ideas that I had. She has access to all the latest trends whether it’s wallpaper, fabrics, tiles, paint colours or furniture.She does individual designs for each and every client..
She even placed all my new furniture in the house while I was away on holiday so it was a real thrill to come home too.
I would certainly recommend her to anyone and would use her again in the future.”

We chose Carmen Hubber to decorate our home situated between Glenorchy and Paradise after an initial discussion with her onsite.
Architecturally our house was designed to be in harmony with its Alpine environment with use of schist, rough sawn timber and jarrah cladding. We designed the interior decoration to flow with the surrounding and Carmen selected quality drapes, furniture, and linens coordinating the colours of these throughout the house.
We were very happy with her selections in regard to the sympathetic outcome of the project. We sought her advice on a subsequent project and would have no hesitation in recommending Carmen Hubber Interior Design to others.”

“When we started our renovation and redecoration project, we contacted Carmen for help with choosing paint colours and fabrics; Carmen came back and recommended a pallet of colors and also using wallpapers in some areas that we loved.   She came up with great ideas for the blinds and drapes that made a huge difference to how the rooms felt.  In the end, she helped us with the most of the project including choosing the carpet and wood flooring  she found us some lovely pieces that we bought though her including the lamps with shades that we absolutely adore, the Italian dining table and the coffee table in the lounge which she commissioned for us.   It was Carmen’s suggestion to widen the entrance from the family room into the lounge to make the spaces more connected.  And of course, she worked with us to design a kitchen that was modern and functional including the electrical and plumbings changes.  The back-lit drinks cabinet was totally Carmen’s idea; we were a bit sceptical at first but now totally love it!"
