“Engaged Frances and Fabi during COVID lockdown and we are interstate but not meeting in person was not an issue. All meetings were by zoom call. The process was smooth, easy and professional. We and all our house visitors are wowed by the outcome. Even the tradies have complimented. Well worth the money spent! If we ever had the fortunate opportunity to need their services again we would not hesitate to use White Pebble.”
What our clients say
“Frances and Fabi were absolutely wonderful in all aspects. They were diligent, responsive, easy to work with, patient and showed great care and consideration in all that they did. As first time renovators, we really appreciated and valued all of these traits. We are absolutely delighted with our newly renovated home and would highly recommend White Pebbles (and Frances and Fabi) to anyone embarking on a home renovation.”
“Frances designed my beautiful kitchen and bathroom and nearly two years later both are going strong. The kitchen is so beautiful and functional and it never would have come together without Frances’ expertise and knowledge. She worked with me completely remotely during the pandemic and never set foot in the house! You would never know. I highly recommend her services.”
“Frances, Fabi and the broader White Pebble Interiors team are nothing short of phenomenal. We used Frances’ services entirely online, whilst interstate throughout the COVID-19 period, to create our new build interior seamlessly. Frances and her team are professionals of the highest calibre with extensive experience in creating highly functional, comforting and beautiful interior spaces for any budget.
We were fortunate to work with Frances early in our project to review our floor plan before submitting our plans to council. Due to this, Frances helped us to save thousands of dollars in glazing by repositioning our windows to provide better warmth and light by being sized just right (not oversized in many spaces). This is one of many examples of how White Pebble Interior’s professional high quality interior design services saved us time, stress and money throughout our project.
Frances is approachable by nature and an extremely good communicator who was able to help flesh out our ideas with great clarity. Our brief was carefully listened and adhered to each step of the way, resulting in our contract price with our builder being as anticipated with no surprises – a huge relief!
In short, Frances and her team took our Forever Home from something good, to something great – exceeding our expectations is all aspects. We can’t thank Frances enough for her contributions and impact on the spaces that we experience, love and enjoy on a daily basis. Thank you Frances!”
“White Pebble Interiors have provided thorough, friendly and expert service. I was hesitant initially, but this quickly abated as Frances and Fabieli listened and developed the brief with me for the materials and selections for my kitchen and bathrooms. They took away all the overwhelm I had around making decisions and produced selections that were true to my style and budget. Their experience and knowledge was obvious throughout – engaging WPI was definitely worth the investment.”
I wanted to thank both Frances and Fabi for their design advice and suggestions for my new kitchen. It is now complete and I’m absolutely delighted with the look, feel and function of this room. It’s the focal point of our living/dining area and every time I walk into the kitchen, I feel lucky to have this special space. The colours and textures are amazing and transform the feel of the room – tranquil and light-filled during the day and turning to romantic and cozy at night. I think the kitchen also reflects my love of nature – particularly in the palette of colours you suggested, which harmonize beautifully together. I’m very grateful for all your efforts and I wish you all the best.
We recently completed some renovations at our home- interior painting of entire house, sanding and staining of spotted gum floor boards and update of the kitchen cupboards and splash-backs. Unsure of where to begin, confused by the number of ‘white’ paint colours, and overwhelmed by the choice of cupboard doors, I reached out to Frances at White Pebble Interiors. From our very first meeting she listened to our brief, our wishes, and put together a plan that was clear and concise, and within our budget. Frances worked as our project manager, engaging a number of tradesmen to complete the work. At all times extremely professional, Frances and her team are clear on timelines, prices, and expectations. There are no grey areas with the way this company operates. All tradespeople- including the painters, builder, cabinet maker and electrician- were punctual and reliable.
I felt that Frances really listened to our brief, asked questions when unsure, and took into account our current life situation.
We are thrilled with our new kitchen and living area, as well as the paint selection and colour of the flooring.. I would not hesitate to recommend Frances and her team. Whilst I have many talents, interior decorating is not my forte! We saw our engagement with Frances as an investment- to work with a professional able to guide and advise us.
Thank you Frances and team
We worked with Frances on a major renovation of our home. Her experience and professionalism was evident from the outset.
From reviewing our floorplans and making design suggestions, to assisting with selection of our fixtures and fittings, Frances’ design knowledge helped us create a truly wonderful home. We’re so grateful for her ideas and advice that has brought colour and uniqueness and a high-end finish to our renovation.
If you’re undertaking a build or reno, large or small, I can highly recommend working with Frances to get the most out of your project.
Frances really listened to my needs and gave me practical, easy to implement strategies that suits the way I live. She’s well versed in sustainable design so I highly recommend you speak to her before commencing your build/renovation to help design your forever home to be energy-saving and comfortable. Her workshops, blogs, and interviews are also info-packed!
From the initial “Crying out for help” phone call I made to Frances, I was certain White Pebble Interiors would help make our house a home. As soon as we met in person my husband and I loved Frances’ personality – she was professional, confident, excited, and listened to everything we had to say. We communicated our wish list and budget and White Pebbles delivered!!!! Our home has been finished off with beautiful window treatments, lush carpet, amazing floorboards, and our master bedroom is everything we dreamed of, fitted out with custom made furniture. I have no hesitation in recommending White Pebble Interiors and cannot thank them enough for the amazing result achieved in our home.
“White Pebble Interiors, led by Frances, was a key pillar in the construction of our dream home.
Having met with a number of interior designers to assist us, the selection was easy after we met with Frances. Her knowledge and approach was superior. Luckily we decided to engage their services early in the process. Frances was critical in all the work we did with the architect, the builder, the garden designer as well as in choosing most materials.
Throughout the process Frances became a trusted advisor to us and we probably ended up involving her in many more decisions than what would be considered normal. Her advice was always so sound, logical, well considered and yet we still knew that she would always ensure that whatever it was being decided, the end-result would be to the highest standards, have a stylish wow-factor and be within budget. Once the house was built Frances continued to assist us with all things to do with the inside. Colours, lighting, furniture, artwork, cushions….nothing was left to chance. Frances’ attention to every single detail meant that every part of our house has worked out to look, function and feel better than we had ever dared hope for. We learned that working with White Pebble Interior also enabled us to save a lot of money. Not just savings from not making mistakes we otherwise undoubtedly would have. Real tangible savings were made from the many discounts White Pebble Interiors were able to land us through their many and varied high quality supplier contacts.
If ever we were to build another house (which we won’t!) then we would always choose to work with Frances again’’.
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Frances from White Pebble Interiors. I had doubts about whether an interior designer was really needed, given we weren’t making any structural changes to our home – but, from the moment I met Frances, those doubts disappeared. She has a wonderful ability to listen to clients with wildly differing opinions (ie my husband and I!), and still somehow manage to deliver an end result we both loved. Over a year, Frances transformed our house into a true home – with a mix of luxury, but more importantly comfort and practicality. She has incredible contacts; she kept us on track; she helped us decide when we couldn’t; and she was always respectful of our choices. She’s highly organised, reliable, a great communicator, fun – and she really cares. It definitely added to the cost of renovating our home – but Frances was worth every cent. We couldn’t have done what we did without her, and I can’t recommend her services highly enough.”
“We engaged Frances’ interior design services in the early planning stages of our dual occupancy build. One of the townhouses was to be our home and the other to be sold at auction at completion. Frances was able to work within our budget and was very conscious of not over capitalizing, while still giving our townhouses that “wow” factor to set them apart from the rest on the market. Frances provided general feedback on floor plan and layout which was of great assistance in tweaking our plans to maximize buyer appeal (and our own comfort for our own home). Frances was engaged for colour and material selection and did an amazing job on selecting colours, finishes and material selections both within our budget and incorporating our own personal taste and style. Frances shared her expertise and we learnt a lot throughout the process on which areas of the house our money was best spent as well as important finishing touches to pay attention to during the build that we otherwise wouldn’t have thought of such as tile layout in bathrooms. We couldn’t be happier with the final product as well as the sale price for the second unit, and would highly recommend Frances to anyone building/designing their home or next project.”
“We have been in the process of designing our holiday home in Blairgowrie and have been dealing with a building firm to design, construct and obtain a permit.
This has been a very lengthy process and we couldn’t have done it without the input of White Pebble Interiors who were able to identify areas that were going to be difficult to utilise, and in some cases impracticable. With their invaluable experience they were able to advise us on better alternatives and were also very helpful in choosing our interior selections, being tiles, appliances, paint and material finishes. We look forward to continuing our relationship through to the finish of our project.
We would have no hesitation in recommending White Pebble Interiors to any of our friends or associates.”
“I was after someone who could project manage a renovation on my investment property. Due to my busy working life I needed someone to be on site and sort out pretty much everything. From the word go, Frances was fantastic, she organised trades people and was on site and kept me in the loop every step of the way. I needed this job to be completed ASAP as my property was vacant. Frances understood my needs and worked extremely hard to achieve what I needed.
I am very grateful to her as she was very professional throughout the whole process and achieved what I needed and kept to my budget. Results were great and within a couple of weeks I had an open for inspection, a lot of interest, and a new tenant within a few days. Most importantly, I also managed to increase my rent based on the work that had been done, which was fantastic! I have no hesitation in recommending Frances to make over your home – she gets the job done and was just fantastic!!”
“A creative and thoughtful designer who is a delight to work with!
I’ve engaged White Pebble Interiors on two occasions and I’ve been thrilled with the process and results both times. Frances listened carefully to our needs and design preferences and provided great solutions to meet both our style and modest budget.
For our living room design we had some broad ideas for the colours and feel we wanted to create and Frances responded with a well put together colour pallet, furniture and accessory options.
When we renovated our next home Frances advised on design aspects of our new kitchen, laundry and bathroom. She was able to compliment our architect’s skills to with advice on getting the look we wanted within our budget. Frances was invaluable when it came to choosing all the tapware, sinks, tiles, lighting etc. She helped turn a potentially confusing and time consuming process into an easy one. Her approach gave us plenty of choice but she did a lot of the research for us ensuring that it was never overwhelming or too time consuming. Frances directed us to a range of suppliers who were helpful and could deliver quality options that met our budget. Frances’ insight into the latest trends and practical considerations were vital. I felt confident that we were choosing good quality items that were going to really meet our needs and they all worked together to create a wonderful space.
I’d recommend White Pebble Interiors to anyone who wants great design advice and support in selecting items for their home.”
“Frances came highly recommended from a friend who had been full of praise of her services and skills as an interior designer and consultant. I was in the process of building a brand new home, with loads of decisions to make and confusion about where to begin! Frances’ advice was priceless, she patiently worked with me (and a builder that was challenging and with very tight timeframes!) and guided me every step of the way, helping me with decisions to anything from paint, flooring and tiles to fixtures and fittings. Frances has a great eye and has helped me choose some lovely additions to my home. Not only is Frances a talented designer but her service and support was patient, responsive and always professional – not to mention those trade prices! I would highly recommend Frances, she was a pleasure to work with and would recommend to anyone regardless of whether they were building, designing or redecorating.”
“I found Frances from White Pebble Interiors through HI Pages. My original plan was to completely renovate my study. Frances met with me & got to know my taste. We went to the best furniture stores together & Frances organised everything, from feature wall paper to carpet & cabinetry. Frances hired all tradesman, supervised & checked on the quality of their work. I was so impressed with the way my study turned out that I ended up having Frances help me design four other rooms (3 bedrooms and our formal lounge room). I also asked Frances to help me repaint my house both inside & out. I found Frances to be very professional & at all times extremely friendly & easy to work with. I would not hesitate in using White Pebbles Interior’s services again, or recommending Frances Cosway to anyone.”
“As a property developer I needed a designer that was able to differentiate my homes from others on the market and specify for the target audience to create a unique offering. Frances from White Pebble Interiors was able to do just that for two developments I have engaged her services for – Ayr St Ascot Vale & Edgar St in Moonee Ponds.
The fixtures and fittings chosen, together with the colour schemes, specialist light fittings and feature tiles, all lead to an exceptional sale price which was greater than expected. The purchasers particularly liked the material & fitting boards you produced, allowing them to really see the uniqueness of the property. Your specifications, along with the supporting boards made the development stand out from the rest on the market.”
Your attention to detail and flair for choosing unique details is certainly appreciated, and I will definitely be using your services again for the next development’
“We came across White Pebble Interiors online and our experience has been an amazing one. We renovated our house and needed help matching our furniture to the new interior and bring out our individual taste. Frances was able to quickly understand our requirements and catered to our aggressive schedule. She was extremely accommodating and very flexible and able to work around our availability to ensure we got the result we wanted in the timeframe. We could not be happier with the end result and would definitely use her services again.”
