Injecting Glamour & Enchantment into the Everyday

page_type: prop_plus_profile
At homeTonic, we view interior design as the happy marriage between architecture and decorating. With a “fresh eyes and tuned in” approach, our aim and point of difference is not just to create pleasant solutions for our living environments but transformative ones, injecting glamour and enchantment into the everyday. We believe every home can tell a magical, evolving story with the personalities of its occupants being the main characters. Based in the Cairns region of Far North Queensland we are surrounded by lush. Those that choose to live and visit here cannot help but embrace the warmth, beautiful light, diverse flora and fauna and the breathtaking outdoors. homeTonic’s inspiration begins here. Using colour, pattern and texture, layered with treasured pieces and unusual finds, we weave all elements into a whole paying constant attention to function and proportion and creating an individual style genre that is far from generic. We approach each project from simple sourcing requests to room refreshes to complex multifaceted renovations with the same originality, professionalism and customer focus. Susan, herself a self-confessed serial renovator, finds lack of confidence with design decisions and “afraid of getting it wrong” to be the main hindrances her clients express to not having the interiors they dream of. With her 25 plus years’ experience encompassing homewares retail, colour consultancy, renovations of multiple dwellings and yachts, sourcing and specification and project management, Susan has the tools and experience to guide you through all the processes with passion and enthusiasm. Susan is the director of Tonic Design Studio, which is made up of 3 entities. The Vale Emporium, Yacht Tonic and homeTonic. The Vale Emporium is the retail space and showroom based in the historic Sugar town of Gordonvale. Here Susan showcases eclectic collections of art, soft furnishings, lighting, decorator items, gifts and fashion. Yacht Tonic specialises in the interior refit and refurbishment of luxury Superyachts and homeTonic is the residential interior design and decorating arm. Please call Susan at homeTonic to embark on an approachable, affordable and exciting design journey.
