Jan-Marie, the region’s only Interior Designer member of the DIA, Design Institute of Australia, provides Darwin home and business owners with
the kind of personalized design services and resources they cannot get elsewhere. She is a luxury design specialist who works with busy
professionals and business owners who do not have the time or necessary expertise to design and decorate their spaces, often teaming up
with custom home builders and architects.
Jan-Marie offers services ranging from colour consultations, space planning to kitchen, bathroom, furniture design, build, project management
and all other joinery items which can be manufactured at North Joinery, Darwin where JM is co-owner.
“What excites me is seeing my design concepts impact people’s lives,” Jan-Marie says. “I love knowing that what I create for them –from a fully
furnished home to a custom wall unit heightens their whole way of living.” “My design approach draws on the ancient Chinese Science of
Feng Shui where harmony between the environment and the human experience is paramount including the psychology of colour”
Her clients today benefit from the international design insights she acquired while living, working and studying in the world’s capitals including
a 6-year stint in Hong Kong as a corporate Marketing Director of Asia Pacific with a Luxury Hotel Chain. She gained invaluable perspectives
on cultures, design styles and trends whilst doing residential design in London, New York and the Middle East. JM Interior Design Studio
