A fun renovation for a busy working mum and her three boys. We made sure the finishes were sophisticated but functional. Working with the existing floor plan, Macfie Architects moved a couple of walls to include a scullery off the kitchen, a walk in wardrobe in the master suite and a nice big linen cupboard. Lots of built in cabinetry was installed along with new carpet and drapery to complete the picture.

About the

It takes a special kind of relationship to form a successful design partnership, as is the case with the dynamic duo behind Entrance Design, Claire Kingan-Jones and Nicky Tong.

Meeting at the Nanette Cameron Interior Design School, Nicky and Claire draw on their well-rounded experience and shared passion to create enviable and timeless interiors with personality and liveability at the core.

The design duo’s distinct sense of passion, energy and warmth, set them apart in an industry often perceived as intimidating and unapproachable – a misconception Claire and Nicky seek to change.

Combining their strengths, they have come up with a concept that makes the interior design process a fun and rewarding experience. With their client's unique personal style at the forefront of their designs, Entrance Design strives to create homes that ultimately complement and enhance lifestyles.

“Whether it’s a small room update or an entire home refresh, we provide cost competitive solutions with an emphasis on transparency throughout the process.” – Claire Kingan-Jones

“We understand every client is different and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We can lead you step-by-step through the design process or, you can take the lead through our online service, drawing on our wealth of experience along the way,” – Nicky Tong
