KATHERINE WILLS INTERIORS
We are a multi-disciplinary interiors consultancy based in Fitzroy. Launched in 2012 after the success of our first project Williams St Apartment, which was this year published in InsideOut Magazine.
We have recently moved to Gertrude St, Fitzroy where we can host client consultations and meetings.
From concept to completion, no two projects are the same, so we tailor our services to each client: whether it's a couple hour of advice; finding that missing item to finish a space, or a comprehensive service to renovate your home.
We pride ourselves on a transparent design and billing process to help you make the right decision for your lifestyle, budget and home.

Katherine is an emerging interior designer based in Melbourne who has been practicing since 2012. With a background in fine art and extensive knowledge of colour, light and materiality, Katherine employees the artists’ investigative process to refine a concept and define a look.
Working with Katherine was fantastic. From the start, she had a clear vision to transform our kitchen from a dark, cramped space to a light-filled, contemporary dream.
We gave Katherine a pretty open brief; change everything! Incorporating our love of food, wine, and travel, Katherine’s resulting design was very thoughtful and considered. She had heaps of ideas to enable us to fully utilise the space in the apartment.
In addition, she always made herself available and was very patient in answering our numerous questions.Katherine’s passion for the build continued well past the design phase and she supported and assisted as the design evolved.
It was Katherine‘s confidence and ability that inspired us to take risks. We love her non-conformal and creative approach to design and, as a result, we have a very unique apartment that suits us perfectly. ▋ LEANNE + MATT C.
Katherine is a very talented person, with ideas, and not afraid to implement them - that is to invest the time and energy that it takes to convince a client (that was me and my wife Ann) and then convince the tradesmen to do the work.
The end result of her work at our apartment is on her website and I can say she was great and I recommend her to future clients. ▋PETER + ANN.
BQ Design had the pleasure of working with Katherine being the winner of the 2011 BQ Design student project competition.
What inspired BQ about Katherine’s design was her excellent selection of fabrics and coordination of colours to create the perfect ‘bedroom mood’.
BQ was impressed with how Katherine combined her fine arts skills with interior design to create a very individual style.
BQ Design recommends Katherine’s work and wishes her all the best for a successful career in Interior Design.
Kat came on as a volunteer with the One Girl team as our Interior Designer to transform our office from a space full of cardboard boxes and white desks, to something that would increase the core teams productivity, be enough space and suitable for up to 15 volunteers to come and go using hot desks, while also maintaining our privacy. Not an easy task, and to make it even more fun, we had a $300 budget.
Kat was incredibly professional as she took the team through the design process. Initial designs were returned to us quickly and addressed our needs. While we had additional asks, Kat was great with us as she listened to what we were really asking for. She took the initiative to crowdsource a lot of the furniture and paint needed from chairs to industrial shelving. A friend of hers ended up organising a fundraiser, which over doubled our budget and covered all of the expenses, so our whole office redesign didn't end up costing us anything!
Kat facilitated painting days and installation days with our volunteers, and really blew us away with how well she managed the design and implementation of the transformation.
I'd highly recommend Kat for any interior design / decorating work that needs a creative solution. Kat is someone with an edge who will think outside of the square and listen to what you really need, rather than what you're asking for.
Kat was clear about what she could and couldn't do, which made our life so much easier as we knew exactly where we stood, what we needed to do to fulfil on our part of the deal. There's no messing about with Kat, she'll tell you how it is and get straight to the point - something we love!! ▋LAUREN - ONE GIRL
