"Mardi is a creative genius. She has helped style our holiday accommodation in Byron Bay. Her eye for detail is second to none and her vision to bring a concept to fruition is brilliant. Her choice of pieces she picks out for us are always spot on, she intuitively knows what works in a space. Mardi goes the extra mile, she genuinely cares about her work, she’s knowledgeable about a whole host of products and materials, she’s always contactable, always gives sound advice and does it all with a big smile! Many thanks, Mardi, you are a gem."
"When we built our house, in Lennox Head, the biggest challenge for me was the whole design aspect. Mardi from Style Agenda helped me navigate through all the decision making regarding both interior and exterior design with her expert knowledge, professionalism and eye for detail. She is always on the ball when things don’t go as planned, finding solutions or alternatives and sorting out any problems if necessary. Even after the build I still turn to Mardi for all my furnishing and decorating needs. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you Mardi.”
