Initially Louise was consulted to assist with the fit out for our medical suite.  Her input was amazing. The result was modern, yet warm and dateless.  Patients frequently comment on the colour scheme, light fittings and general design.  We were so impressed with Louise’s input we asked her to help refurbish our home.  She has been invaluable, saving us money by helping us avoid costly mistakes (for example choosing the wrong paint colour and furnishings that don’t quite work).  Louise spent time understanding the styles/colours/designs that we liked and then used her skills to help create rooms that we love. We have come to the point where we consult Louise on almost all our design/colour issues and if there is any disagreement between us our joint cry is “Louise can decide.”

"Although I have always been apprehensive about engaging the services of an interior designer, that all changed when I met Louise Kollosche. Louise made me feel comfortable as soon as she walked in the door. She complimented me on my decorating and took on board all of my ideas. She made great suggestions and opened many doors to different suppliers. She was not put off by my meagre budget and the lengthy time frame. She recognised my sentimental attachment to certain items and gently suggested ways to bring them up to date. She has given me the confidence to continue my journey to achieve all of my decorating goals. It is always a pleasure when Louise walks in my door."

Louise Kollosche was procured in 2012 to renovate and design the Mater Private Breast Centre.

The result of Louise’s expertise did indeed surpass our expectations.  It can be a difficult task to create a safe, calm, warm and inviting environment in such a sensitive area of medicine. Louise had the experience and professional creativity to visualize exactly what our requirements were.  Her utilization of soft colour, textures with the right amount of bling and the incorporation of organic artwork created a very calm, nurturing, and timeless environment.

Now, some 2 years later our suite continues to have a contemporary design which has a very welcoming feel for all of our patients and their support persons. The various health professionals consulting from the centre continue to report how conducive the refurbishment is in facilitating the medical services they provide.

As the Breast Care Nurse in the Centre I can report we are still receiving compliments and would welcome any opportunity to partner with Louise again.

I have been using the professional interior design services of Louise Kollosche from Ko-Designed for over 14 years and I have engaged her on a number of home renovation projects during that time. I cannot speak highly enough of her skills and service and the value she has added every time I have asked for her assistance.

She brings a depth of commercial and domestic experience to her projects and her interior design skills have been fundamental to the success of my renovations and I have come to rely on her judgement implicitly.

Louise has assisted me with the design and management of a number of projects including raising and extending a Queenslander, layouts of living areas, kitchens, bathrooms, ensuites, laundries, wardrobes and storage. She has helped me with the selection of tiles, bathroom fittings, paint colours inside and out, carpet, furniture and soft furnishings and the result has always been fantastic and delivered above and beyond my expectations.

My most recent project of a two bedroom unit also has had Louise’s touch and has been transformed, on a very tight budget, from a pleasant but plain space to a trendy abode that really has the wow factor.  I love living there now and get great comments from all my visitors.

Louise has the ability to listen to the client and work within their budget, offers sound advice, has a great understanding of the functional use of space, an excellent eye for detail and keeps up to date with current trends. She is professional, communicates effectively with the client and tradespeople throughout the job and still is smiling at the end of project which makes working with her very enjoyable.

However, her biggest strength is that she works with her client to ensure that their own personality and taste still dictates the design and style of the project. Louise uses her interior design skills to enhance and extend your own ideas so the final result is uniquely yours, but with an elegance, taste and flair that I simply would not have achieved without her involvement.

Louise has been an essential member of the team that helped design and launch our new business. Many clients have commented on how good our fit-out looks. Louise took the time to understand our brief and needs. She combined many creative designs and helped style everything from colours, furniture, fittings, special features, artwork and staff uniforms. So many clients have commented that our building looks great and we are extremely happy that we have a space that our staff and clients enjoy, at the same time managing to stay within our budget. I have no hesitation in recommending Louise and her design service.
