Meet Lisa Redshaw | Interior Designer

Creating Beautiful and Functional homes that are as unique as their owners is how Lisa Redshaw describes her work.

Established in 2001 Lisa Redshaw's interior design practice has flourished with new build projects, full scale renovations, kitchen and bathroom makeovers and bespoke smaller projects such as furnishing selections. Lisa has a powerhouse of interiors knowledge and has an eye that creates inspiring finishes.

We took five with Lisa to find out a little bit more about her design style and tips for putting together a design scheme.

Description of your design style…

If you asked my family and friends, they would say my personal design stye is minimalist although I don’t know that I would entirely agree. I love colour, and pattern, at the same time I’m very detailed focused, preferring timeless well-designed pieces over current trend items, always focusing on Is it necessary – make it beautiful. When it comes to working with clients I am the Queen of questions, understanding wish lists and stretching clients visions just beyond their comfort zones is part of the process of personalising each project.


Latest trends or styles you are enjoying…

Warm nude and blush tones combined with natural fibres, honed raw materials, and aged brass. Very happy to see the end of grey based interiors.

Top tips when creating a design scheme:

Start with something you love, something that excites you, maybe it’s a gorgeous fabric or wallpaper or a piece of art that has a personal story to it, use this as your inspiration and build from there. When you pull all the proposed samples together the tones and textures should flow everything should belong together.

A recent project completed:

A new build showhome brief from Design Builders was to – Showcase the architectural features with a nod to french country styling.

Design Builders light filled new show home overlooks the Omokoroa Golf course. Within the white on white interior lie layers of fine detailing, subtle wallpapers, hand finished feature walls, wool carpets and timber flooring.

Favourite design item you are coveting:

I'm loving the SUGI Yakisugi Japanese charred cedar it has an incredible authentic texture. A cladding and weatherboard system made from imported sustainable Japanese cedar it has a stunning finish.

Top flooring picks at the moment in flooring:

I’m definitely a pure wool carpet kind of a girl, the health and environmental benefits are awesome, the texture of Bremworth Transpire teamed with simple American Oak.
