"I wanted to upgrade the interior of my house. Most of the interior was way past its best and needed repairs to bring it up to standard. I hired Sandra from Residential Colour and Design to complete the renovation and I am very glad I did. My 2 month interior renovation project was completely managed by Sandra from initial design concept through to completion of work. As well as supplying a whole range of colour and design options she organised and dealt with all the contractors on site. All I had to do was sit back and watch. She went above and beyond to provide me with a quality service. Nothing was too much trouble for Sandra. I found her very personable, honest and very reasonably priced. My new kitchen designed by Sandra ended up in an interior design magazine so the results were better than I could have hoped for. My friends cannot believe the transformation of my house. I can’t recommend Sandra and Residential Colour and Design highly enough. "
Sandra was referred to me by friends who had used her advice and expertise when decorating their home. Initially I was considering just new drapes and from there I now have an almost new home that is smart and warm. Sandra managed the whole of my interior decoration which I love. She was very patient and at the time of the redecoration I had every confidence in her ability to suit my taste and pocket. I would recommend Sandra to anyone considering using her skill as an interior designer and manager of the whole project.
Sandra's advice and expertise has helped our family transform our home slowly from an average 1960's suburban home (Hillpark, Manurewa) into a little oasis which reminds me of a Parnell Villa. Her years of experience with colour choices, fabrics, and styles warmly guide clients to consider an option which they would otherwise be uncomfortable with resulting in wonderful new styles which leave you feeling very pleased and proud of what you have achieved". All this can be achieved regardless of the level of your budget. Thanks Sandra for your guiding hand.
Sandra has worked with our team at Argon Construction Limited on several projects over the last 3 years. These have included several individual houses where she was responsible for all interior design including the selection of internal and external colours, floor coverings, both tiles and carpets, window dressings, kitchen and bathroom surfaces, splash backs and the kitchen appliances. The most recent project she has been involved in with us has been the interior design and decoration of 25 residential units at an aged care facility in Auckland. Sandra worked closely with the project manager and the client to ensure that the interiors of all the units met the clients specifications and budgets. Sandra provided colour boards and samples of all products to be used which made discussions and selections very easy. Sandra has proved herself to be well informed of current trends and of new products that are always becoming available. Our project manager found her to be flexible and open to suggestions from the client and her work was always presented on time and to a very high standard. Sandra was a valuable addition to the project team and should another similar project arise, we would certainly consider using her again.

My husband started stripping off our peeling wall paper one day, and before I knew it, the whole house had been stripped bare. We were looking at paint samples and came across Sandra's card at one of the paint stores. I wasn't keen on having someone tell me what colours to paint my home but he suggested getting an expert in to give us guidance. I was pleasantly surprised. Sandra asked what colours I would like and guided and assisted my choices rather than forcing her views on me. She also helped me choose our curtaining to match the colour palette of the walls from her extensive range of curtain fabrics.
My husband and I were extremely happy with the finishes and have received many compliments from friends about the paint colours and the curtaining. This was 5 years ago. Last year we embarked on a half a million dollar renovation and contacted Sandra again. Nothing had changed regarding her professionalism and quality products. We have a beautiful home with colours and textures we love. Working with Sandra is easy. She communicates clearly, is always available and delivers on her promises. I recently ordered a blind for my office through Sandra and will continue to deal with her in the foreseeable future.
I have used Sandras' services for both a domestic refurbishment and commercial consultation. The domestic job was our 19 year old house, which involved a new kitchen, floor coverings, wallpapering and painting of the lounge, bedrooms, hallways and new downlights and drapery throughout. Sandra was always friendly, helpful and wonderful at sourcing product to enhance our renovation. A job well done. Sandra has a wide range of contacts in trade and services which we found competitive and of a high quality.
The commercial job was consultation in the refurbishment of the local Bridge Club. Those involved were very impressed with the outcome.I would highly recommend Sandra's service to any potential user.
