"I didn’t know where to start with renovations. Our house was falling apart as we kept putting it off. Finding Alix was like a miracle. In our first meeting I could tell she knew exactly what we wanted. She saved me countless hours of shopping and decision making. She produced wonderful mood boards and plans for each area of the house with a few different options - all of which were perfect.
She found us some great builders and helped us through the whole process which was pretty much stress free. Our new kitchen and bathrooms look amazing and they are also very practical for our family. I would totally recommend Alix she thinks of every detail and she’s always cheerful and positive. Renovations are a big investment and I felt confident Alix helped us get the best value out of it. Thanks Alix"

"Having spent a long time thinking about my bathroom renovation, I contacted Alix from Alix Helps Interiors with a rough idea of what I wanted. Her portfolio reflected the look and feel I wanted, and I really needed advice and guidance from a pro. I'd prepared some mood boards, and showed her the rest of my apartment to get her familiar with what I was aiming for, I was out of my depth when it came to translate that into an actual plan.
Alix knew her stuff, quickly grasping the ideas I had in my head and pulled it together into a plan I was comfortable and excited about. Her 3D renders were impressive and gave me the confidence that I was in expert hands. Alix took great consideration with my needs and designed a bathroom that met both my budget and design expectations.
Her suggestions for finishings, fittings, cabinetry and tiles were fabulous and beyond what I could imagine for myself. She crafted a bathroom that was practical for my space and storage needs (oh my, THAT vanity!!!) whilst wowing me with absolutely stunning design, right down to the minute details. She allowed for my feedback and time to consider things carefully, and I really trusted her judgement. All the practical things, like positioning of the power points, shower drainage, the heated towel rail, and underfloor heating were taken care of. She even prepared me a style and specification guide for my entire renovation, 3D rendering the finer details to ensure nothing was missed in the actual build.
The result is a bathroom I am totally and utterly in love with. I love that its so beautiful yet so functional! And I adore that guests walk into my bathroom and go ‘WOW!!’
Overall, Alix was warm, approachable and absolutely nailed my brief, exceeding what I could possibly have dreamed up for myself. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"

I can't say enough good things about Alix. She listened to my design brief and was able to bring it to life exactly on point. I loved the additional creativity she brought in the extra finishing touches. Alix is such a warm person with abounding enthusiasm and a genuine love for what she does. She truly has a gift for design and is a pleasure to work with. I can highly recommend Alix."

"Alix helped me with the design of my formal lounge room, my casual living room, my powder room and entrance hall. After a 1 hour meeting Alix presented me with a brief that was spot on. She immediately understood my style and what I wanted to achieve in each living space. I am thrilled with the result and will not be undertaking any design projects in my home in the future without first consulting Alix. She has a very strong attention to detail and she is a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend Alix for any job, large or small."

We hired Alix to help us redecorate our sons' rooms and our guest room. Alix is a total pleasure to work with. Professional, polite respectful, and full of fabulous ideas. She listened to our brief and budget and created wonderful, stylish, funky rooms for our boys that relects their very different personalities. And our guest room is now a lovely, fully functioning space. The quality of the products sourced for us and the cabinetry installed is amazing. I couldn't recommend Alix highly enough. Looking forward to working with Alix on our next projects!

Alix Helps was recommend to us by a close friend. We were delighted with the design and especially the final outcome. Alix was quick to understand our family needs and our lifestyle preferences to which she quickly applied her creative flair. Alix is great to work with and we recommend her highly.

My husband and I designed and built our 'forever home' - it is a beautiful home and we love it. We moved in with the kids and old furniture and felt our home wasn't quite complete. Four years on and time finally came to remedy this. We were happy with the foundations - the bones and layout are great and many design decisions along the way we knew worked well. The question was, how do we finish?
Deciding on the furnishings was an enormous and almost overwhelming task. We needed help to pull it together - that confidence boost and sounding board that ensured money spent on colours, textures & furnishing was indeed money well spent. We met with Alix and decided to complete four rooms - formal lounge, family room, dining and study.
Alix made this seemingly daunting process a simple one. The service came with detailed design boards so we could conceptualise the rooms - thankfully, Alix created many to cater for our numerous indecisions!
Once we settled on the design, Alix assisted with bringing the board to life - sourcing selections, colour pallets, suppliers and offering that wonderful thing called designer wholesale discount!
The service Alix provided helped us complete our home and turn this beautiful carcass into a family friendly, comfortable and welcoming environment...the kids are still the same...

I was unsure about hiring an Interior Designer/Decorator, and thought it was something I could manage myself. I’m so glad I decided to hire Alix to assist with renovations to my master bedroom and en suite. In the long run, it saved me time, money and my sanity. Alix was an absolute delight to deal with from our first consultation; she got ‘my style’ right away. She was always helpful, extremely creative & made the whole process of my renovations stress free. I would not hesitate to hire her again. Thanks so much Alix!

When trying to design our new bedroom, my husband and I became very confused trying to put together the many different 'looks' we had researched on Pinterest and other similar websites. We approached Alix to consolidate these ideas to create a room that was elegant, classic but also a little luxurious. Alix took a lot of time listening to what was most important to us but was also confident in suggesting changes or enhancements that improved the design. Every component was beautifully illustrated using boards, images and samples so that we could understand what the room was looking like. Alix was very friendly and efficient throughout the process and made it exciting and stress free. As a result we have a stunning bedroom to enjoy!
