Inspiration+Co. Interior Designers provide comprehensive interior design and interior decoration services throughout the Greater Wellington region.

Our client base stretches from Seatoun to Khandallah within Wellington City, as well as across Wellington Harbour to Eastbourne, and north to Porirua, the Kapiti Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa.

Our philosophy is shaped by our passion for working with people and helping them to get the most enjoyment possible from their homes and office spaces.

Boasting a team of experienced and passionate interior design consultants, Inspiration+Co. maintain a firm commitment to working toward our client’s needs and tastes, rather than imposing our own preferences or becoming ‘too involved’ in shaping a project, or over-stepping our boundaries.  Whilst our interior stylists love working with clients who wish to use rich textured wallpapers and vibrant colours, we are equally comfortable putting together a contemporary modern neutral scheme.  We work with you to fully understand your unique style and what it is that excites and inspires you, providing a professional interior design service that allows you to realise your vision for the ideal interior to your home.

At Inspiration+Co. there’s no such thing as a ‘typical assignment’; client projects vary from architecturally designed new builds through to renovations of turn of the century villas.  The focus of our interior design team is on meeting the individual tastes of each client within their designated budget, which means we don’t have one particular ‘look’ that we’re attached to.  In fact, we thrive on the challenge of providing bespoke interior design to cater to each of our client’s needs.  The variety of projects we have undertaken and the breadth of styles and finishes we have provided are a source of great pride and continual excitement to our team – it’s what keeps us loving what we do!


Testimonials from previous clients

Leigh Jamieson is fantastic; she helped us choose furniture for our recently updated Wellington home. She listened and always came back to us when she said she would. She had great ideas and suggestions, and even introduced us to art. We are thrilled with the results and would thoroughly recommend Leigh.

I am absolutely thrilled with the work Heather and her team have done with my house in Greytown. I had purchased a 100 year old house that had a colour palate of Spanish White in every room. Heather has transformed this with bold colours and fabrics which far better suit this style of home. She has an uncanny ability to walk through a house once and yet remember even the smallest details as she comes up with a design. Heather has a real passion for her work and always gave prompt replies to any query. I had worked with interior designers on two previous occasions, but this was the best experience by far.
We have had great results using Inspiration+Co - their expertise makes renovating and decorating fun and easy while saving time and money. They know all the products and they know what works. We’ve used them to renovate and furnish older homes, on a new home build, and on commercial office premises. Highly recommend them!

Renovation in Thorndon

A fabulous project we recently undertook in Thorndon, Wellington: this magnificent 19th century home was fully refurbished, with our client keen to embrace a blend of the traditional and the contemporary.

The dining area was decorated in traditional style, with chandelier and moody textured wallpapers on both the walls and ceiling to complement the owner’s antique furniture, whilst the adjacent kitchen was given a contemporary makeover complete with high gloss cabinetry, metallic splashback tiles and industrial pendant lighting.

"Our 1910 home was suffering as a consequences of a previous owners 1980s make over. The thought of planning and managing the logistics of a design improvement seemed overwhelming until we engaged Heather and the team at Inspiration+Co. From our initial meeting we were walked effortlessly through the production of initial design concept plans; the introduction and appointment of a suitable trades team; through to the establishment of a workable delivery plan that would meet with our desired timeframes and budget. While we had very definitive ideas regarding our desired aesthetic and we knew specifically what we didn’t like, decisions regarding product choice would have been much more difficult without the help of Inspiration+Co. Heather listened to our requirements and paired back product selections for us that aligned with our design vision, simplifying every part of the decision making process. We didn’t need to trawl products on line or in shops or warehouses as she brought all samples to us in our home to review / touch in person - it was almost really too easy! We have blown away by the end result: contemporary yet a beautiful blend with the character features of our home. We're about to embark on the second phase of renovations and will be utilising the talents of the Inspiration+Co. team once again. We're excited to get this transformation underway and can’t wait for the final results, as we know we are on to a sure winner with Heather and the team."
