About

Taylored Spaces is an interior design studio owned by Joanne Taylor. Her team is kept small and hands-on so that the focus is on offering a one-on-one, personal service no matter how big or small the project. We work closely with a skilled group of makers and artisans who manufacture for our projects. 

 

With 30 years in the Interior industry, Joanne has completed homes both nationally and internationally along with various corporate build and fit out projects, of varying size. 

 

Building lasting relationships with our clients and understanding their brief, is key to delivering a project which meets expectations, is delivered on time, and within budget. Every project is about people first.

Philosophy

There’s a saying that very much depicts the way we approach our interior projects: "One basic principle of good design is that form follows function".

Whilst we live in an era of consumerism and most consumers want to achieve a look at the minimum price, Taylored Spaces believes it should never be at the cost of quality. Buy the best that your budget allows for, even if that means you buy less. Also – don’t buy to fill space. Buy with purpose. Buy quality and buy pieces that you believe to be beautiful too. We believe in timeless, classic design that has longevity. Trends are short-lived and thus have little value. Furniture which is made consciously, with attention to detail and quality finishes, will last the test of time. We support local makers and craftsmen and have longstanding relationships with our contractors and manufacturers. It is these relationships that enable us to deliver projects on time and with confidence in their longstanding appeal and value. 

 

Renowned furniture designer Charles Eames said:  “Design is an expression of purpose and it may (if designed well) later be judged as art."
