Testimonials

Joanne was fabulous as both a designer, advice on selection of fittings and overseeing the project management of our kitchen and bathroom renovations.

Margot Hill  September 2019


I had a great experience from beginning to end. Jo had such wonderful, practical ideas that suited us perfectly. I really had nothing to do except decide on colours and finishes... everything is of the best quality, and yet reasonably priced. I loved that Jo project managed everything and I had nothing to worry about. Jo gave me precise timelines and itemised quotes and was always easy to contact if I had a question. Best of all, everything happened on time. The tradesmen she used were also professional and easy to work with. I just love my bathroom, kitchen and laundry. I couldn't have managed to undertake such a major project without Jo.

Joanne Byrom was recommended to us by a Property Developer acquaintance who had used her services in the past. We needed the services of an interior designer as we purchased an 18 year old penthouse apartment in November 2018 that needed a substantial renovation with refurbishment of the kitchen, bathrooms and lighting as well as other works. Additionally we needed to purchase new furnishings and curtains for the apartment. Further, the renovation work and furniture installation needed to occur while we were absent overseas.
Jo designed the new kitchen and bathrooms and also assisted us in selecting tiles and benchtops. Additionally she helped us select all our interior and external furnishings. All this preliminary work was done before we left to spend 3 months in New Zealand when the renovation work took place under Jo’s supervision. We arrived back in Australia 2 weeks ago and walked into an apartment that had undergone a stunning transformation – the new kitchen, bathrooms and décor look fantastic and everyone who has visited the apartment since our return has commented on the high quality of the finishes and furniture selections. We are delighted with the result and the improvements have added considerable value to our property.
All the work supervised by Jo during our absence was carried out by experienced tradespersons with who Jo has worked for years. They are high quality tradespeople who completed their tasks within budget and on time. The onsite management in our apartment complex commented that the tradespeople who worked on our apartment were the best they have ever seen on the property – they obeyed all pre-agreed construction rules and their work caused little or no disruption to our neighbours.
We could not speak highly enough of Jo’s professionalism and enthusiasm for her work and have no hesitation is recommending her to any potential client. Very easy to work with her and completely honest and diligent in the manner she carries out her duties.

You always know where you stand with Jo; it’s great to work with someone who is willing to work together with scheduling, design ideas and recommendations, all to help the client achieve their desired outcome on time and on budget.

Jo gives personal service and is present at all installations to ensure that the outcome is compliant with the order. Any substandard products are rectified by her personally without question. Jo sets good time lines and ensures that orders are dealt with efficiently. Apart from that she is a lovely person who tries to ensure you individual likes are met, while giving expert advice about the potential outcome of your choices.

We engaged Jo to help us with couch colour and style, TV solution, colour scheme and some fairly difficult & specific needs for storage solutions. She was amazing, she came up with some brilliant ideas, engaged the suppliers and followed through to completion. She was always willing to provide advice on other aspects of the home for future changes, promptly responded to emails or returned calls.
We are so pleased we used Jo for our mini makeover and couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you Jo.

Jenny G  October 2018


Having seen Jo's work in a relative's house, I hired Jo to help me refresh the interiors of a tired house. She helped me choose colour schemes and materials, the quality of which is superb. The solid wooden floor (on concrete) never fails to attract favourable comments. The quality of work done, the attention to detail and the very efficient coordination of work with contractors are all impressive. The professional appearance of the final product has exceeded my expectations. I will hire Jo for further development. Work was completed on time and within budget.

Margaret Williams May 2018

Jo has a talent for colour, design ideas, and product choice. Easy to communicate with, Jo and her team met deadlines and worked within our budget. The quality of workmanship has been very pleasing and we would absolutely recommend engaging the services of Interior Design By Jo should you be contemplating renovations to your home.

Meredith Alexander  July 2018


Jo assisted us with the product selection and installation of furniture and furnishings on Hamilton Island. The project was delayed and had logistical challenges that Jo navigated on our behalf. A totally professional service resulted in a full installation within a week of settlement. I would recommend Jo to anyone requiring an interior design service.

Karen Ryan December 2018

"I was most impressed with Jo's interior design work on my 7 apartment development in Brisbane. I found her a pleasure to deal with, most professional in approach and the end result for the units with all potential buyers commenting on how impressed they are with the quality, practicality and class of the finishes compared to the standard units on the market these days.

I liked the fact that you can have a good debate about the pros and cons of certain directions but leveraging off her expirience in the industry I was confident that where we ended up was the best path to take. 

I have since recommended Jo to many of my colleagues since and I look forward to working with her again on future developments."

"We went to Jo with house plans in hand for colour advice. Jo listened to our brief and came up with what we consider to be perfect! Jo advised us on house colours, internal and external, tiles, benchtops, cabinetry, curtains and soft furnishings. She also was a wonderful help in our kitchen design. Jo is practical, budget conscious, creative, knowledgeable, and very patient! No job or question was too much trouble. We are very happy with the results of Jo’s work and would highly recommend her for any project. We hope we will work with her again."

"Joanne Byrom has skilfully guided us during the rejuvenation of our home. Joanne's design brief started with the internal and external color pallet, once this was defined we moved to soft furnishings, wall papers, stone tiling, throughout the house. From the start Joanne listened to our concepts, she took these and returned with an elegant color pallet, set out with several options to define our taste. She delivered well beyond our expectations.  The use of Onyx together with the hardware in the bathrooms really made the statement we were after. The level of detail in all the bathroom and kitchen cabinetry designed by Joanne left nothing to chance. She is prepared to be bold when warranted to make that statement. It is our pleasure to provide Joanne with this testimonial, her vision, creativity and sophisticated touch has left a truly wonderful home for us to enjoy."
