Sarah McCarthy-James, of Greenwood’s Home did a beautiful job designing a new bathroom and laundry and re-decorating throughout our century old Queenslander. Always respectful of the style and history of the house, she created a timeless, coordinated schema, tying the old with the new seamlessly. Sarah introduced me to a range of suppliers that I would not have otherwise know about; especially local photographer Kara Rosenlund and ceramicist Kym Wallace. Sarah has a very good eye for colour and proportion but she does not forget the practical aspects necessary for comfortable living in a family home. She kept a close eye on the budget, so there were no surprises there, which is always a good thing! I highly recommend Sarah. She is very talented, great to work with and although she does work in a range of styles as required by her clients, I found she has a special affinity for and understanding of the old Queenslander style.

I have recently gone through a divorce and wanted to lose certain memories associated with my home, in particular my master bedroom. I have never used an interior designer before but I am so pleased I chose Sarah. I trusted Sarah with the full design of my bedroom and living room. I actually had no idea what I wanted or what would work in my home so I trusted in her design completely. I am so grateful for everything she has done which has totally changed the energy of my home and made it mine. My home truly makes me happy again. Thank you so much Sarah. ♥️

It has been 3 years since we completed our complete home renovation with the assistance of Sarah. I regularly have visitors to our home comment how beautiful our home is - I always have to admit that the design choices were Sarah's suggestions. Sarah worked with our builder to create a complete finish guide to all the finishes and colours for our home. It ensured that the renovation was completed exactly as we wanted it from our brief to Sarah. If you are considering a large renovation, I would highly recommend engaging Sarah early in the plannings stages to save yourself a lot of time and possible costly mistakes.

We had a fantastic experience with Sarah, renovating our kitchen, laundry, and living and dining rooms. Sarah's enthusiasm, and reassuring presence from the concept design stage, through to the finished product was much appreciated. She helped us to express our ideas, and was hands on with all the trades during construction. We are blown away with the result, and loving all our new spaces. Thank you Sarah.

Our family made a decision to relocate from our Sydney home to Brisbane with very short notice. With our two children anxious about the move, we knew we needed someone to help us create a warm and inviting haven for our family to start our new chapter in our lives. Sarah came highly recommended and was the perfect answer to our quest. Not only is Sarah exceptionally talented as a designer with great style and an eye for detail, she also has excellent project coordination and communication skills that set her apart. These skills were critical in successfully completing our project so we could continue to work overseas and commute between Sydney and Brisbane. We knew what we liked and didn’t like in the way of a design style but we couldn’t find a specific genre to describe it. Sarah listened and digested our ideas and guided us to develop our own unique style whilst working within our budget. Once she was clear on the scope of work, we were more than happy to hand over our keys and let Sarah work her magic. Sarah was warm and professional and made the process very easy and fun. She kept us informed throughout the whole process and was able to accommodate our busy work schedules. Sarah transformed our house into a beautiful urban retreat by mixing some of our existing furnishings and little treasures collected through our travels, with new furnishings she sourced for us. One of our goals was to create zones in our home that could be easily transformed as our family needs change – she achieved this seamlessly and we couldn’t be happier with the finished product. Our family loves spending time in our new home and we can’t thank Sarah enough for making our relocation so effortless.

Earlier this year, I became a young widow with two small children. I suddenly had the urge to turn my home into a sanctuary- a place where my daughters and I could feel safe and warm. A place where we could be reminded of beautiful things in life. Sarah not only mastered the brief- she exceeded it. She listened to all my thoughts, aspirations and ideas and then built upon them to create the dream home that even I had not imagined. She was passionate, enthusiastic and inspiring. Sarah was able to accommodate my budget requirements as well as select pieces suitable for the entire family. Her team of workers were reliable, friendly and professional. Her radiant personality made her a true delight to work with and she comes with my highest recommendation

Sarah did a fantastic job of adding "soul" to our 13 year-old apartment. She was presented with a series of unique challenges and in every respect met or exceeded the brief. She turned the "bones" of our apartment into a home we can rightly be proud of. Importantly, Sarah was great fun to work with and kept the whole project on track in a very professional manner. Her hand-picked trades did a great job and worked very efficiently under Sarah's guidance. I thoroughly recommend Sarah for the excellent results she achieved, her passion in responding to unique requirements, and her attention to detail. I look forward to working with her again on another project.

It was a wonderful experience working with Sarah. From the first contact she was approachable, friendly and professional. Sarah read my likes and dislikes so quickly. She took note of my surroundings and worked with them on the design of my bedroom, bathroom and small office. She brought in every element of my existing house to create a glamorous yet peaceful space. I can hardly wait to start on our next project.

When we purchased our original condition 1970's double story brick home several years ago we thought we could easily renovate the house to be a modern family home. How wrong we were! Between builders, family and friends all providing their ideas on what could be done, there was no-one that could bring all the ideas together into a single consistent whole. This is where Sarah stepped in to our lives and took us through a simple design process to find a style for our renovation and then combine this with the right space plan to achieve our home living goals. Armed with this information we were in a much better place to work with builders, cabinet makers etc to get our renovation brought to life. Finally, Sarah worked with us through the build phase to resolve issues (often with little or no notice), and guided us on the right styling choices to make. We have now been living in our newly renovated home for 2 months and we couldn't be happier!

"Merci Beaucoup Sarah! You are a marvel. You are a magician. I have watched and listened in awe at your brilliance in transforming my impossible surroundings into a gorgeous reality that previously I could have only ever imagined. Thank you for creating a beautiful space which combines our family's love for Bali with a touch of France into our home everyday." Gen Wilcox ~ Clayfield

We are so thrilled with the transformation of our house, thanks to the talented Sarah from Greenwood’s Home. It was a huge task.. with all bathrooms & kitchen totally gutted and replaced with new. Interior and external repainted/ all new furniture/ new artwork/ shutters/ blinds etc etc. I handed the whole job over to Sarah and nothing fazed her!! We really couldn’t believe our eyes on handover day.. the house had been transformed into our dream home. Sarah has such an eye for detail, and really worked around our family and how we live. Even our four doggies didn’t faze her . I highly recommend Greenwood’s home .. Sarah is passionate about working with her clients to achieve a great outcome and she is also very considerate around budgets.. making the impossible happen. Thank you Sarah ❤️

When it finally came time to renovate our home there was no doubt I would enlist the help of Sarah from Greenwood’s Home. I have admired Sarah’s innate sense of style for many years and knew her down to earth and practical sense of design suited exactly what I was after. Sarah’s attention to detail is exemplary, and she helped me every step of the way assisting me with all the tricky decisions and leaving me completely at ease that I was being guided towards a fabulous outcome. Sarah is excellent in finding stylish solutions within budget constraints as well. Sarah was absolutely integral to the renovation of my home and I would never have achieved the wonderful outcome without her help. We now have the home I always dreamed of. Thanks so much Sarah!
