Client Stories

I worked with Hollie on our new house built last year on the Whitianga Waterways. She managed our project while we were overseas.

Hollie looked after interior and exterior style, she has excellent ideas and is very easy and fun to work with.

We had a few face to face meeting initially where she established the style we were looking for. After that, she used Pinterest and Dropbox to share design concepts.  She is a great communicator, and her attention to detail is excellent.

Hollie looked after paint colour- interior and exterior, tiles, flooring, window coverings and furnishings right through to bedding and finishing details. She also looked after dealing with the various supplies and managed the contractors.

We are delighted with our new house and would not hesitate in recommending Hollie to anyone looking at having a house built in the Whitianga area.

Hollie did the most amazing job on our wee apartment in the Aqua Soleil Villas. 

She replaced the entire kitchen and flooring, painted walls and wallpapered, and added a few styling features. The apartment looks more modern and expensive!
She project managed the entire job, keeping us informed all along. (We live in Auckland, so having her there to oversee it all was essential.)
She has a very good eye for style and current trends and I respected her opinion and choices.
We will be using her skills again when it’s time to re-do the bathroom.

Right off the mark it’s Hollie’s attention to detail that lets you know you are in good hands!
Usually (for us at least) renovating is pretty stressful and overwhelming, with so many options to choose from it’s hard to know where to start, but with all of that was taken care of.
From designing the the initial plan, coordinating the contractors, and carrying out the inspections, made it all a breeze, she even made sure we were was getting the best value for our money for items including tapware carpet and flooring.
We loved Hollie’s enthusiasm and her ability to pick up on OUR style, finding the colours and textures that we loved.
Hollie talked us through the plan making the process fun and exciting she had such great ideas and solutions.
We are so happy with our new Kitchen, Dining and lounge area.
We highly recommend to everyone.

You Won’t Regret Using Hollie To Create The Home You Have Always Wanted!

I was hesitant about building a new house but being married to a builder it was inevitable! I was worried about all the choices I was going to have to make. How was I going to narrow it down? What if I got it ‘wrong’? After our first meeting with STyla Design, Hollie had a general idea of what suited us and from there our theme was born. The mood boards that Hollie created were on point and immediately made it easier for us to make decisions as we were presented with a more narrow selection of colours and items that were suitable for our family home. Hollie has a fantastic sense of style and is highly knowledgeable in every area of interior design. Even though Hollie is based 2.5 hours from us she still came shopping with us and made site visits in a timely manner. Communication through phone, email and Keynote was easy. Personally I found the process was easy and stress-free. We are delighted with the results and our house has even made it into a magazine! You won’t regret using Hollie to create the home you have always wanted!
