When I was asked to design the colours for this centrally located rest care facility in Wellington. (formally it was the Athletic Park site that many rugby games were held on). I jumped at the chance to design the colours that were warm and joyful. The fabric on the chairs, curtains, and wallpaper allowed me to add colour texture and interest to this wonderful building. All the furniture, I supplied such as reception, dining room, media room, chapel and media room.
On first meeting, I was very impressed with Deborah’s professionalism and passion for interior design. Deborah arrived at Village at the Park with numerous ideas. After she left I felt excited about the project.
Deborah prepared a series of concept/ sample boards for display which she shared with Village residents. During the meeting Deborah also sought input from residents about what was important to them. This gave residents early ownership of the project which was appreciated.
The end result is stunning. Colours are bold and warm. Wallpapers have impact and provide warmth to corridors and meeting rooms. The artwork has all been thoughtfully chosen by Deborah to reflect our diverse cultural diversity at the Park. Other artworks depict our local landscapes that make Wellington and New Zealand a special and unique country. Soft furnishings are all beautifully presented and add finesse to the apartment décor. Furniture has been chosen to give individuality to different areas of the building – bright, bold and high visual impact.
We are so delighted. The whole complex flows beautifully. I am so thankful that Deborah has been involved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah for future work.
