9 Amazing Australian Interior Designers

There are numerous talented interior designers in Australia. Every so often, we here at Carmel Homes make a list of who we are finding most inspiring at the moment.

Have we missed an interior designer you love and think we should include in our list, contact us.


Sarah Ellison is a leading Australian interior and fashion stylist and designer based in Bondi Beach, Sydney. With a background in fashion design, Sarah has worked as a professional stylist for over 10 years and launched her namesake furniture and home accessories label in 2017.

Her aesthetic is modern and innovative, nodding to international trends, but with a down-to-earth simplicity that is distinctly Australian and easily relatable for both consumer and design led clients. This humility has also become her signature within her own label, great design without the ego.

Techne is an ancient Greek word meaning "to make poetically" and is the philosophical standpoint to the work that Technē creates. Demanding clear and conscious thinking, ‘to be poetic’ stands Technē apart from other practices. Consideration is given to the ‘art’ in the work, imbuing each project with thoughtful creativity

Technē Architecture and Interior Design works across residential, commercial, hospitality, and retail projects, creating bespoke spaces that enrich the human experience.

Technē’s work is informed by elements of art, engineering, environment, sustainability, and economics to form empathetic and cohesive spaces. The studio strives to achieve a rare duality between creative form and commercial viability.


Renowned for their artistic approach to interior design, Fiona Lynch is a design studio that excels in achieving wonderfully resolved outcomes across residential, hospitality and retail projects.

An inventive use of space, materials and custom detailing are the creative hallmarks of Fiona Lynch, as is a tailored and meticulous approach to understanding the needs of their clients.


Derlot is a multi-disciplinary design studio specialising in interior design, art direction, branding and product design. The studio, directed by Alexander Lotersztain, operates from Brisbane, Australia, and collaborates with clients both nationally and internationally.

Derlot's client portfolio includes among others, National Australia Bank, Nestle Multinational Switzerland, Virgin Australia, Escofet Spain, Idee Japan and UFL Airports New Zealand.


Arent & Pyke interior design studio was formed in 2007 by principals Juliette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke. Arent & Pyke believe that their clients should connect emotionally with the spaces they live in. Arent & Pyke work collaboratively, seeking to understand exactly how their client want to live, helping them uncover their own tastes and aesthetic visions, supporting them to make informed decisions – and ultimately creating carefully considered, functional and beautiful spaces that fit your life.

For as long as he can remember, Greg Natale has been passionate about interior design. The multi-award-winning interior designer has become known for his masterly use of pattern and colour, and his bold application of both in creating tailored, glamorous and sophisticated spaces.

Greg’s business has gone from strength to strength, with designs featured in numerous local and international publications including Architectural Digest, Harper’s Bazaar, The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, Vogue Living and Belle Australia. Among the many awards to his name, one of the most recent is winning International Luxury Designer of the Year for 2016 at High Point Market in North Carolina.

The directors, Paul Hecker and Hamish Guthrie, who appear on the surface to present a sort of yin and yang in terms of personality, have at their core common design beliefs that support and sustain one another and the broader practice.

The aim of the practice is to create spaces that are endearing and beautiful, where the feeling speaks louder than the furnishings and the levels of charm and comfort outweigh the instant gratification of the merely new.

Signature to every project is the partnering of an elegant aesthetic with a functionality that transcends the years. 

Principal Brendan Wong has twenty years industry experience working throughout Australia, London and Paris. With a Bachelor of Interior Design and a Masters of Interior Architecture, he was recently honoured to be the recipient of a Fellowship to the Design Institute of Australia in 2013. Brendan holds diverse knowledge in the field of interiors and has awards from the DIA, SIDA and the Kenzo Design Competition.


Lauren Li founded Sisällä Interior Design in 2010, since inception the business has grown significantly. Sisällä believe that a home should be filled with good vibes. Beautiful spaces that are full of atmosphere, and that evoke emotion, are at the core of what they do.

Sisällä are over-sharers! They are happy to share the sources they use in their interior design projects, so they created an immersive space called Apartment; where they bring together a carefully curated selection of locally made designs, artwork and iconic pieces.
