“We asked Chantelle to assist us with textile choices and colours for our new home. We had assembled our portfolio of ideas but were feeling as though there was a lack of cohesion. Chantelle ‘counselled’ us through our ideas, listened to our concerns and provided us with a range of colour scheme options for our entire house including the exterior and interior. She also helped us meet what we believed were challenging covenant requirements.

We wanted to be careful to work to our budget with our house fit out; Chantelle was especially helpful with this when selecting tiles and fitting out our bathroom areas by recommending special features, but helping us select and pair these with complimentary lower cost textiles. She also recommended effective lighting solutions that ensured we got the look we wanted but for better value. Chantelle was professional, accessible, patient and enjoyable to work with. We are really happy with the results and are grateful for her input.”

“We used Chantelle for our recent bathroom Reno and she was absolutely amazing. She listened to our ideas and put together some beautiful quality selections within our budget. She has an absolute eye for design and the tiles and colours in our bathroom work so cohesively with the rest of our home.”

"Working with Chantelle was a great experience and we are so happy with the results!  She combined our ideas and vision with her expertise, experience and knowledge of furniture to give our new build a beautiful and unique finish.  She considered not only how the spaces were going to be used but also what would work with our (limited!) budget and fit with the relaxed, beach vibe that we were trying to achieve.  We really appreciated all her hard work in dealing with the suppliers, sourcing items, arranging fabrics and getting quotes - definitely value for money and we feel really lucky to have had her help"


“From the moment Chantelle stepped into our house, we felt completely comfortable with her.  She was easy to talk to about our ideas, very knowledgeable about different products, and full of great advice. She has a great understanding of colour, and her suggestions have been spot on. She was always willing to listen and help guide us when we asked, and was exceptionally prompt and efficient at replying to our many questions. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with, and we would gladly use her again.”

“Recently we built our first home and had Shaw Design follow through with us the building process and interior design decisions. Chantelle instantly lifted a weight off my shoulders, as before she came on board I was second guessing decisions and feeling overwhelmed with the process. Chantelle not only shared her knowledge in interior design but also made some slight architectural changes which gave our home that extra something special.

"Down to every small detail, Chantelle’s advice was Gold. Chantelle doesn’t try to change your vision but enhances and brings together your vision, even more gorgeous than you had imagined. Shaw Designs communication was also something I appreciated throughout the process. When issues arose I could easily contact Chantelle, she was timely and proactive in responding. Chantelle was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her knowledge and ability in interior design.”

"Thankyou Chantelle, you’ve been instrumental in the transformation of our villa.  It didn’t occur to me to engage an interior designer until a friend recommended Chantelle to me when I’d told her how completely overwhelmed I’d felt at the choices available of tiles for our bathrooms. Getting Chantelle onboard was the best decision and her input has been a worthy investment in our biggest asset.  Chantelle guided me with colour choices to produce cohesion throughout our home and has advised me through some big decisions, and some finer details which I wouldn’t have considered. She has a warm gentle nature, and is decisive, highly skilled, knowledgeable, passionate in her craft and provides thought into every detail.  Understanding her thought process behind decisions has enabled me to feel confident with my own decisions, though she has always been readily available when I’ve needed a second opinion or when I’ve been presented a question I haven’t known the answer to.  We now have an elegant and functional family home designed with thought and style for the present and future."

“We have had the absolute pleasure of working with Chantelle throughout the process of our new build. We enhanced our original design by engaging Chantelle early in the process to work collaboratively with our architect and builder, to produce a property which we are proud to call home. Chantelle instantly recognised the style we were seeking and made the process of product selection to achieve this, for both the exterior and interior of our home, seamless. We appreciated Chantelle’s friendly approach, creativity and professionalism.  At every step, Chantelle willingly discussed options and made recommendations. Most importantly Chantelle valued our ideas and input, and incorporated these into the overall design of our home. These ideas then came to life though the detailed plans Chantelle provides. We have enjoyed recommending Chantelle to our friends and family and will gladly continue to do so.”

B & J Bartram

Chantelle has the ability to lift your ideas off paper and out of your head and create a space better than imagined. Her expertise and vision are second to none, she brings a room to life and turned our empty spaces into a home. Highly recommend!


"We contacted Chantelle to help with our renovation after a recommendation from a friend who had used Shaw Design. What we appreciated most was her ability to catch our desired look and execute it to a level we could never have achieved ourselves. She first re-designed our kitchen then helped with colours, flooring, and finishes to ensure they all tied together, stayed within our brief and budget. Her advice was invaluable, her service was efficient and professional and she has an excellent knowledge of what options are available. I highly recommend Chantelle if you are after a personal service executed to a high standard."

K & N Jacobsen

"I would thoroughly recommend engaging Chantelle's services. We already had a really clear vision of what style we wanted, so we needed someone to understand our concept and help us put the dream together. She sourced hard and soft furnishings, gave us a shortlist to choose from in our price range, and was an excellent soundboard and knowledgeable style consultant. It was an absolute joy to work with her - and made the whole process so much easier. We are thrilled with the final result.  Shaw Design is an absolute investment in your home, and one you will not regret."
