Joining the team in 2013, Marnee is an award winning graduate of The International School of Colour and Design, specialising in interior design, styling & home organisiation, originally with a background in creative arts.
With a passion for colour and unique aesthetics, time spent in places such as India, Morocco and Russia, have woven faraway flavours, vibrant ethnic threads and a visual wanderlust into Marnee's work.
Materials and manufacturers that hold sustainable and ethical credentials are favoured, and the belief that a space created out of consideration for these things will possess added vibrancy and a sense of connection.
Working with the design team, Marnee relishes in expanding her knowledge, experience and technical expertise, and is unafraid of pushing boundaries, designing from instinct not just the latest trends.
Marnee shows commitment to her community and environment & maintains collaborations with local artists and makers.
Marnee continues to assist Melanie with local projects on a part time basis from her Sydney base.
