Hi I’m Rachael and Staple Design is my ‘baby’.  

I also have another baby, his name is Harvey.

There are many similarities between my babies; they both keep me up at night, they are both all-consuming, they are both work, they are both extremely rewarding and finally I cant live without them.

I did a few things before I had my babies. I studied for 6 years in creative fields, firstly Fine Art at Curtin University followed by Interior Design. After finishing my studies I gained a huge amount of experience working for an architecture practice on commercial, educational, retail and hospitality projects. I then shifted my focus towards residential design where I worked for a luxury home builder for a number of years. During this time I started to take on my own freelance projects and developed STAPLE DESIGN. I always had in the back of my mind that there would come a time where I would have a baby (a real life crying one) and I knew that a level of flexibility would need to be built into my life in order for me to pursue my goals and creative pursuits. 

I’ve always loved being an interior designer but since having a baby, I’ve realised just how important it is to me. I love researching, sketching, designing, drafting, list-making and meeting so many wonderful people! I love being able to help my clients create unique and beautiful spaces that they can share with their family and friends. There is nothing better than seeing a space evolve through considered and well-crafted interior design…apart from getting to take my clients along for the journey!

More recently I have had the opportunity to move from PERTH to Australia's largest creative hub; MELBOURNE! It’s the next chapter for STAPLE DESIGN and the next challenge for me personally. There is so much access to great design in Melbourne, which I hope to feed into my projects on both sides of the country.

Lastly, I firmly believe that it is important that a great relationship is built between interior designer and client and that there is complete and utter honesty and transparency. For this reason I encourage you to take your time when choosing an interior designer.

I hope this has given you a taste for who I am and why I love being an interior designer. If you think I might be the right person for your project and would like to get to know me better than please get in touch for an obligation free coffee…or wine!
