The Design Files on Chelsea Hing – shout out

It has been an exciting few weeks at CHDC with lots of press enquiries & fun things happening. Just in case you missed this week’s post on The Design Files here it is below. Big thanks to Lucy for a great story, Anne-Claire for handling the production behind the scenes & Nik for my new portrait.

“I am often asked to recommend interior designers or interior stylists who can assist with home renovations… which is very tricky, because so many of the amazing and revered design studios we have featured here over the past few years are bigger firms who don’t necessarily take on small residential projects.  I’m always thinking I should be on the look out for more ‘approachable’ interior designers, and smaller firms who can take on a great variety of projects, from ground up builds to more modest re-furbs – and excecute every project, no matter how tiny, with the same level of finesse and enthusiasm!  That’s why I am super excited to feature Melbourne interior designer Chelsea Hing today!

Having cut her teeth at respected firms Nexus Designs and Bates Smart, Chelsea ‘sort of accidentally’ launched her own practice, Chelsea Hing Design Consultants in 2007.  Since then she has relished the opportunity to drive her own projects, and to create a body of work she is proud of.

Chelsea’s passion is residential interiors.  Amongst her recent projects, Chelsea was responsible for the renovation of Vanessa Partridge’s Kyneton home, which I know won many hearts when we featured it a few months ago!  This particular project is testament to the diversity in Chelsea’s work – it’s so lovely to see a sensitive, understated renovation of a Victorian country home amongst CHDC’s portfolio of contemporary and larger scale projects, such as the award winning Binnie House.

Massive thanks to Chelsea for sharing her beautiful work with us today – one to bookmark for your future dream renovation project!”

  • I just came across Lucy’s interview with you on TDF and am so glad that I followed the links back to your blog! I think it’s heaps clever to see that you’ve specialised in residential jobs and appreciate your tips, particularly I’m currently going through the stages of trying to get a planning permit in the hope I’ll one day have a dream reno to decorate *fingers-crossed*

    Thank you for the inspiration; I’ll certainly be coming back for more.

    • Thanks Cheryl, coming from a Business Chick I really appreciate your feedback. I’ve admired what you guys are doing for women in business, its inspiring! Happy to chat once you get closer to your dream reno. And stay tuned for more helpful posts I’ve got in the works, I’m sure you’ll find them useful.
