Surrey Hills bathrooms
Jasmine was recommended to us by our builder and she proved everything he promised: top end, meticulous in design and detail and providing the whole package.
We were looking for someone to design three bathrooms where there had been two, and work out some extremely tricky roof lines and sloping ceilings – a job that seemed to confuse and confound most people who looked at it. Jasmine and her team were exceptional – measuring and working out all the relevant roof heights and slopes that went every which way, moving walls and using cavities but all with minimal building needs.
The outcome is three beautiful modern bathrooms using every bit of space thoughtfully with plenty of storage and every convenience considered. They look amazing and are so easy to live in.
We were under a very tight time deadline to get all the plans and fixtures and fittings ordered in time for the build to start and Jasmine and her team prioritised our job so that this all worked and the entire job was completed to time. (The builder that we used works with Jasmine closely and often and he was by far the best builder we’ve ever worked with.)
I have and would highly recommend JM Design and in fact I already have a friend using their services. You won’t regret it!
Three bathroom renovations completed March 2023
Alphington Californian bungalow
Jasmine was an absolute delight to work with, and we have no hesitation in recommending her.
Jasmine was the only designer we interviewed who demonstrated that she understood what client centred really meant. She genuinely listened to our brief and seemed to bring no preconceived ideas to the table, however she was also able to incorporate her great ideas and design vision. She worked well with our builder, and her ego never got in the way of incorporating his or our ideas into the design. We were sure there were times she didn’t agree with the choices we made, however she never lost sight of it being our house and our project.
The space that we had was tricky (and had stumped others), however Jasmine was able to think outside the square to renovate the space into something that we really love. At the end of the project we have no design regrets - and we would hazard a guess that few can say that of a renovation project.
We did our renovation at a particularly stressful time (during Covid lockdows), and Jasmine’s sunny outlook and upbeat personality was perfect to jolly us along when stress and decision fatigue was starting to take its toll.
If you are looking for a genuinely client centred designer, Jasmine is fantastic.
We first approached Jasmine and JMD in 2018, after spending a lot of time researching on the internet, to assist with a refresh of our house. At the time our children were on the cusp of leaving home, and we wanted to zone the living spaces to better suit a couple, but also make the house more sustainable and contemporary. Two bathrooms, a kitchen, powder room, and upgraded living spaces later, we are delighted with our home, which is now a cozy oasis that works cohesively, whether there are two of us, or the extended brood is staying.
Over five years and two separate projects, Jasmine and her team have been wonderful to work with. They are great at listening, challenging, incorporating your lifestyle, and developing a palette that suits you and your needs, not just relying on the latest design fad. Communication is easy; Jasmine and the extended team, including the lovely Barbra, are prompt, efficient and understanding, particularly if you are trying to manage these projects while juggling work and family life.
They also have fabulous relationships with a preferred builder, who is amazing, and many other artisans who bring a bespoke aspect to the overall finish. We love the outcome Jasmine and JMD have delivered for us and will continue to recommend them to anyone wanting to improve the liveability and ambience of their home.
Ascot Vale kitchen
Jasmine was recommended to us by a friend and from our first conversation we knew she was the right person to work with to design our new kitchen.
As people who love to entertain but also also have a small child, having a beautiful, yet functional and durable kitchen and entertaining space was very important.
From the beginning Jasmine and Skarlet worked with us to understand how we wanted to live in the space, what was important to us from a design and functionality perspective. They took on board our ideas but also encouraged us to think outside the box and be more adventurous with our choice. JMD prepared several options for the layout and finishings for the kitchen and walked us through them in detail, giving us plenty of time to consider and discuss.
JMD had a great vision for the kitchen as well as ideas as to how we could reconfigure the open plan living room to make the most of the new kitchen.
We are so thrilled with the finished kitchen, the colours and finishings are perfect and it is everything we hoped for and more. The new island bench (designed by JMD) is now a favourite place to cook, entertain and read the paper.
Throughout the process JMD were a delight to work with, always responsive and helpful. We loved that we could also engage JMD to help review the plans from the builder and for advice along the way. We will definitely work with JMD again.
Kitchen renovation completed March 2023
Jasmine and the team at JMD were a pleasure to deal with and quickly understood our lifestyle and needs. Communication was prompt and courteous and the design ideas fresh and innovative.
JMD designed our lounge area and TV wall along with kitchen bench tops and tiles to compliment our architect designed kitchen.
JMD worked with us on all our furnishings and colour schemes from rugs and sofas to dining tables, chairs to kitchen stools, curtains to lighting, right thru to artwork, cushions and even pot plants.
We really enjoyed the whole experience and we love the space so much we hardly ever feel like leaving.
Thank you JMD!
We have worked with Jasmine and her team since 2009. Over this time JMD has organised the renovation of our kitchen, bathrooms and living area. They have recommended and organised furniture, carpets, window coverings and paint, both inside and out.
Jasmine takes the time to get to know you and your lifestyle and works with this in designing your renovations.
Jasmine and her team are always professional and on time in their communication and checking that all is going well. The tradespeople they work with were a joy to have in our home.
We can’t speak highly enough of Jasmine and her team and look forward to future opportunities to work with them again.
Southbank apartment and Brighton home
We have worked with Jasmine McClelland Design twice now, first in our apartment and more recently our house, where Jasmine and her team created beautiful spaces without compromising on functionality. On both occasions Jasmine turned bland, boxy spaces into homes with soul, that are a joy to exist in. Jasmine has created spaces that we have a sense of connection with, that ‘just feel right’. Walking in the door always feels good, and at the end of a long day, like home is truly the only place in the world we want to be.
The entire process of working with Jasmine and her team is a delight, they make navigating the daunting world of colours, textures, shapes and finishes fun. They are always there to provide advice and guidance without any pressure to go down any particular pathway. Jasmine quickly understood our aesthetic and developed beautiful solutions that have resulted in spaces that we love to live in. We would trust Jasmine and her team 110% with any future project we had and hope to work with JMD again on our next interior update.
Rosebud beachside home
My husband and I engaged Jasmine to design our internal spaces for our brand new house by the beach. She connected with us in a delightful and thoughtful manner to gauge the style we wanted and how we would use the spaces. Her initial design hit the brief! Jasmine came up with many ideas that we used to enhance the designs, her great eye for curating the finishes for all our cabinetry, benchtops and splashbacks was amazing. Her gift for combining the perfect colour palette for our beachside home exceeded my expectation! I was completely delighted.
We also engaged Jasmine to help decorate some of our spaces, she brought together the contemporary style of the architecture and our love of mid-century design, to create a home which is elegant and warm.
Jasmine managed to steer me away from of some of my disorganised thoughts but at the same time come up with viable alternatives! I’m sure I tried her patience, but she understood it was a big moment for us to get this right and was extremely thoughtful and nurturing.
My family is thrilled with the end result and we smile every-time we enter the house. It definitely ticks all the boxes for us! We would not hesitate to recommend Jasmine and her team.
Wheelers Hill home
Jasmine and her wonderful team helped us renovate our 50 year old house. The entire experience was seamless and very rewarding. We were particularly impressed with the prompt replies our queries and coordination between Jasmine, our builder Luke and various trades. It took the stress away from our renovation. In fact, we are teaming up with Jasmine again for our second project.
We have no hesitation in highly recommending Jasmine and her team for any project.
Jasmine came highly recommended from my brother and sister-in-law who had previously worked with her when they were renovating their house.
I purchased the 1970s apartment because I was attracted to its size and location. It’s current interior however was less than desirable. I first met with Jasmine onsite and she too instantly saw its potential. Her designs transformed the kitchen and living room spaces. She altered the floor plan it is now a larger space, clean, bright and functional making the area an ideal space for entertaining. Jasmine was able to listen to my vision and she selected beautiful designer finishes. I am particularly fond of her tile selections, oak floorboards and pendant lights.
Jasmine was also able to merge the two tiny bathrooms and create one larger room that then allowed for a free-standing bath which had always been my dream. Her designs discretely concealed the internal plumbing and made for a luxurious and relaxing space.
Being new to owning and renovating a property, Jasmine was incredibly supportive and helpful in guiding me on this journey. She regularly answered my questions and liaised with my builder and tradesmen when necessary. I am incredibly happy with the end result and I love living in my beautiful home. Thank you for helping me to create the home I had always dreamed of. I would highly recommend Jasmine and her wonderful team.
Mt Martha residence
We originally engaged Jasmine to assist with interior design and finishes throughout our entire house. We had already started the building process. We soon discovered that Jasmine’s talents extend way beyond choosing finishes and tiles. Jasmine immediately identified areas of our design where the functionality could be improved. We took on board Jasmine’s design ideas and the result has been a significant improvement to the style and functionality of our house, in particular the kitchen/dining/loungeroom and Master Bedroom Retreat including a stunning Dressing Room and Ensuite. We were so impressed we continued our relationship with Jasmine right through the building phase to the final selection of soft furnishings for the final product.
From the initial meeting, Jasmine listened to us and was immediately in tune with the design outcomes that we were aiming for. Trusting Jasmine’s design ideas allowed us to be more daring with some of our choices and finishes, in particular the tile selections and kitchen design. Her knowledge of products and finishes kept us at the cutting edge of current and upcoming trends. Jasmine allowed us to be involved in as much of the design process as we wanted to be, some areas we left completely to Jasmine’s discretion and when we added our own input it was great to have Jasmine to bounce our own ideas off.
Jasmine and Barbra are an extremely efficient team, responding quickly to any queries we had along the way. Jasmine’s attention to detail is impeccable; she is very professional but maintains a relaxed and fun approach to her work which we really appreciated.
We were very happy with trades that were recommended to us, in particular for the extensive custom joinery used throughout the house. Overall, we would highly recommend Jasmine and her team, by engaging a team of professionals we were able to achieve an amazing result; we only wish we had engaged her earlier on in the project!
After the first meeting with Jasmine we knew we had found someone that we connected with. She listened to what our vision of our home was and gently encouraged us to explore ideas beyond what we could conceive on our own.
She made the entire process of transforming our home exciting and enjoyable. Each meeting the vision of how we wanted to live started to come to life. She provided detailed information for each room, patiently talking us through each aspect, and we are so thankful that she challenged us to be bold with our thinking. Jas was able to create additional storage for us that we just did not see possible (I love my walk in wardrobe!) and transform spaces structurally and with finishes that are such a pleasure to spend time in.
The samples of finishes were so important to help us visualise the end result, and when it all started coming together it surpassed what we had visualised!.
Her ability to recommend furniture and finishes that we would come to love was insightful and illustrates her exceptional talent of being able to understand her clients in depth.
She connected us to some of the most talented and professional trades people that not only provided exceptional quality in the building of our home, but also bespoke furniture that reflected our personalities and but helped us to support local small businesses.
Her team was attentive and supportive every step of the way and we always felt that the entire team was invested in getting an exceptional result for us.
She created the unique warm and welcoming home that we had dreamed of with the use of natural timber and industrial hints as well as maximising natural light and function that is incredibly to live in each day.
We love living in this home and are so happy with the end result we could not recommend JMD more highly.
Rye beach house
My husband and I had moved to an older beach house which required a complete refresh including colours, kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and living rooms.
I was referred to Jasmine by a family member and immediately felt at ease upon meeting her for the first time.
After a preliminary consultation with us we engaged Jasmine and our agreed brief was for JMD to draw up detailed plans for our kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and living room cabinetry along with a much needed brief to refresh the exterior painting of our home. JMD prepared and presented the extensively detailed plans for use by our local builder and we knew we could engage JMD further once the building commenced.
The team at JMD delivered everything we asked for and more and our favourite aspect of the whole project is the synergy of the beautiful coastal colour palette and textures specified for our home from tiles to handles to cabinetry to carpet and paint colours. It was a joy to work with Jasmine and her team to improve our home and I wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.
Cult Cinema and Bar
Working with JMD on the pop-up cinema for Cult Cinema & Bar was such an amazing experience.
We had to transform a very basic council owned hall into an intimate and inviting bar and functional cinema … and then put it back again. As the venue would only be open for one month we had tight budgets to adhere to.
JMD were so knowledgeable and creative in their approach to the space and put us at ease the whole way through. They paired the fit-out seamlessly with the branding and managed to capture exactly what we wanted - it seemed like magic to us the in the week we had to set up, the space was completely transformed. JMD designed and oversaw the construction of a modular bar that can be used in any pop-up space, as well as custom lighting, sourcing plants, furniture, designing the layout and styling the space. JMD had great tradespeople that they worked with, saving us so much time and stress. We couldn’t have been happier with the end result. Thank you!!!
We have worked with Jasmine since late 2011 on the renovation of our home in Toorak. It was built in the late 70s with some good and some not so good design features of the era – like dark exposed brickwork. We wanted to make it more comfortable without losing the attractive design features. Jasmine provided design advice on the whole process, but particularly on the kitchen and living area on the ground floor, and the three bathrooms and bedrooms on the top floor.
Jasmine has a good design sense, design flair and an attention to detail. But she does not impose her views – she suggests ideas and if we did not immediately accept them she would explain the reasons based on proportion or appearance or design or colour. We would also suggest ideas and Jasmine would give us advice in a polite, friendly and frank way about whether she felt they would work, or how they could be improved. The whole process was very collaborative. We respected her design sense and she respected what we were trying to achieve.
During the whole design and build process, Jasmine was reliable, and responsive to questions and to dealing with issues that arose. She gave us the time we needed to think about design decisions and to check drawings. When the situation demanded during construction, she was happy to deal on the phone with issues as they arose from ourselves or the builder or cabinet maker or other trades.
The results have exceeded our expectations. We have a ground floor that is light and airy, with an elegant new kitchen with delightful 70s touches. The top floor is cosy and comfortable including two good sized bedrooms with practical, elegant, and bright en suite bathrooms and a master suite complete with a sun light filled bathroom that is a delight to use, and an elegant but low key walk in.
North Melbourne home
I engaged an interior designer to streamline the process for myself and to get a more interesting and beautiful result than I would have if left to my own devices. Jasmine exceeded my expectations on both fronts. She really made making the decisions easy for me, and brought a lovely sensibility to the job that successfully incorporated my existing pieces, her ideas and my ideas. The tradesmen and craftsmen she recommended were all great to work with and very high quality, taking a great deal of pride in their work. I am very happy with the results and I highly recommend Jasmine.
Jasmine took our very tired 70’s kitchen and transformed it into a beautiful, functional space that we love to cook in. Jasmine is great to work with. She is enthusiastic and has a great sense of colour and texture. She actually listened to our ideas and quickly understood what style of kitchen we wanted and what was important to us. The whole process was as pain free as a renovation could be. Jasmine outlined the process in detail and delivered on time and budget. She gave us plenty of opportunities to review the design and discuss ideas, colour palettes, and textural options. I adore the tiles she found for our feature splash back. I would highly recommend Jasmine McClelland Design.
I cannot recommend Jasmine and Jasmine McClelland Design enough. Jasmine’s style, creativity and flair for interior design was outstanding and very exciting. The way Jasmine can take you to a place you probably didn’t think you would go - in a way that makes you feel really comfortable - and then deliver amazing results was the difference between a great job, and an amazing job. Her one-off rug design to fit my apartment was so unique, as was the advice around wall hangings, furniture and all the little things that made the whole apartment work. What I really loved was her willingness to work with the pieces I wanted to keep, and add value with the new ideas. And her personal touch makes the experience even more rewarding and satisfying.
Jasmine is great and fun to deal with. She makes an effort to get to know her client, provides different options, and was able to challenge my boundaries and offer ideas to achieve exceptional outcomes. Visitors to my home always complement my furnishings, which were chosen or influenced by Jasmine.
Mt Evelyn home
Jasmine, from Jasmine McClelland Design, designed our ensuite, kitchen, laundry and bathroom for our new house. Having 3 adult children still living at home, practicality was important to us while we wanted our ensuite to be a sanctuary, as part of our parents’ retreat.
Jasmine’s advice has been invaluable and we found her to be extremely approachable and somebody who really listened, and understood, our needs.
The end result is such a credit to her, our kitchen, laundry and bathroom are elegant, user friendly and very practical while our ensuite is everything, and more, that we envisaged. It is a beautiful retreat for us to unwind and relax in.
We are so happy with our beautiful new home and can’t thank Jasmine enough.
Brunswick West home
We were looking for someone to ensure our new kitchen and bathrooms were designed in a simple, elegant, but most of all, perfectly practical way. A large home renovation is an expensive outlay and we wanted to be sure that the end result was functional as well as beautiful.
From the first contact our impression was very positive. Jasmine was prompt and responsive to our needs and gave us realistic time frames to work with.
She provided beautiful designs that worked very well in our home and very happily worked with our preferences in colour and style.
The whole process was completed on time and was smooth and trouble free.
The end result was all that we had expected and more. I love working in our new kitchen particularly and there isn’t a thing I would change about it.
Overall, we were very glad we stretched our budget to have Jasmine design the areas of our home that were the most important to get right.
South Yarra apartment
Jasmine has been an asset to the ongoing evolution of my home! I have engaged her on numerous occasions over the years, ranging from a dramatic kitchen renovation involving a single slab of stone cantilevering into an outdoor entertaining space, to simple creative advice on my living room.
She has creative vision and an eye for detail, but she also listens - to the needs and ideas of her client. Each project has involved a clear pathway of consultation, quotation, design, and project management, with some flexibility as things arise.
I am incredibly happy with my living spaces, and know their timeless balance will last for a long while to come!
When I first met Jasmine we instantly connected. Jasmine’s passion and enthusiasm for design drove me to call her and invite her to our home to discuss a new kitchen. Jasmine designed a kitchen that changed our lives. She designed a kitchen that represents our family, our love of cooking, and our travel experiences all rolled into a fabulous space. She listened to us, she quizzed us, she advised us, and she nurtured us through the whole journey. A year later our eclectic kitchen was a finalist in the HIA awards. Many years on and there is no question it is our favourite room in the house. We can’t thank Jasmine and her amazing team enough!
Blackburn South home
We sought Jasmine’s help when we were struggling with soft furnishings & our colour palette after a kitchen/ensuite renovation, as well as generally looking to make the most of our mid-century modern home in Melbourne. Jasmine is the consummate professional and has had lots of great ideas. Her approach is flexible; she provides her insights but she has been sensitive to our tastes and budget, particularly with young kids in the house to consider. Her ideas have been fantastic and the result is going to be fabulous. I have been busy recommending her to my friends. Our only regret - not engaging her help earlier!!! Thank you Jasmine & Barbra.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your amazing help. Your incredible foresight and vision resulted in a remarkable outcome of our stunning kitchen space as well as the adjoining living spaces.
You were recommended to us by a close friend of ours back in July 2013. Coming to our house for the first time, you spent the time listening to our needs and wants but also took the time to look at the rest of our house to gauge our likes and dislikes and get a sense of our style. You understood our brief for the new kitchen and also pushed the boundaries to what the available space could offer. You kept in close contact with us throughout the design phase, and kept us up to date through the design development period. The materials board you presented reflected our initial requirements and desires from our initial brief.
The most exciting day was the design reveal, and boy did you blow us out of the water with your lateral thinking. You started off the design presentation advising us to keep our minds open to the possibilities, then informed us that your design completely moved the kitchen away from the old kitchen location. You were able to create the most incredible open pantry shelving space, timber display shelving for my old kitchen scales, and provide the biggest island bench the space would allow. By doing this you have brought so much more light into the working space and completely modernised the house. Your design naturally changed the whole living area of the house, creating spaces that work in every way and making the kitchen the heart of the house.
We love our kitchen, are extremely happy with what it has done to our home, and very much love creating meals and delights in this space.
I recommend your services regularly to my friends and colleagues, and will continue to do so. Thank you for what you have done to our home.
Jasmine was referred to us by another of her clients as we investigated a renovation for our home. He had worked with Jasmine twice before in large projects and could not have been more insistent that we appoint her as designer. We feel fortunate to have received this advice.
Our renovation involved a kitchen, two bathrooms and two powder rooms. We sought a design that placed a high priority on functionality and a classic look that would be resistant to changing fashions. Whilst we had some ideas of what we might want from browsing through kitchen and bathroom magazines and renovation websites, we had no experience in bringing all of these aspects together.
Jasmine made the experience of arriving at a suitable design an enjoyable one. From the initial call which laid out her capabilities and services, it was a pleasure from beginning to end. Throughout the entire process, Jasmine was open to our ideas. She was instantly able to bring rough concepts, a few clippings and some hand waves into working designs. It was as if she could see the pictures in our minds that we were trying to convey. Colour palettes would be developed whose combinations we could not possibly have created, let alone imagined. Not just colour, but texture also. Tiles and stone surfaces were selected for durability and also to be forgiving to day to day use without sacrificing aesthetics. For example, we have two daughters who wear their hair long. It would never have crossed our minds but Jasmine gave careful consideration to bathroom floor tiles that would make loose hair less visible. It is the small things like this that continually surprised us on top of the major design decisions. The ergonomics were also well considered. Ultimately, we want to use these rooms and they had to be practical in addition to looking good. We cook meals more quickly now, as one example of how design choices improved functionality.
Jasmine can also be appropriately assertive in warning against hot ideas we may have had that just would not have been practical or otherwise have been unwise for design reasons. We really valued that and it increased our confidence that we were heading in the right direction. As ideas inevitably change upon further reflection, Jasmine accommodated the process of settling to final designs with ease. She has clearly adapted well to clients who change their minds as things progress and we never felt that anything was too much to ask or felt hesitant to re-imagine something we had agreed upon weeks earlier. It was always clear that Jasmine’s key aim was for us to get a good result.
The process of design, for Jasmine, does not end with the production and delivery of design schematics. She worked through fine details with our builders to ensure that various matters were accurate and that the plans could be implemented. As would be expected for larger projects, unforeseeable things developed along the way. Where any of these issues could have benefited from Jasmine’s assistance, she was always there. She would visit the stone suppliers to ensure that alternatives we had to contemplate were the best choices available. When we decided to have splashbacks instead of tiles in the kitchen, appropriate colour choices appeared two days. It was like this throughout the renovation. Jasmine’s appointment only really ended when the renovation ended.
Appointing Jasmine was the right thing for us to have done. We would have had a lesser outcome without her. She kept us clear of pitfalls and produced a design which simply works and, naturally, also looks good. She also helped reduce the impact of adverse developments during the building process. Due significantly to the working relationship she had developed with our builder, issues which arose just seemed to fix themselves.
We have had a wonderful experience with Jasmine and her team at Jasmine McClelland Design.
Glen Iris home
We write to let others know just how pleased we are with the interior design service provided by Jasmine to achieve a complete make-over of our house. It feels like we are living in a new house with our renovated kitchen, bathroom, laundry and family room as well as the new carpets and painting in the rest of the house! We could not be happier with the way it looks and how functional it all is. Jasmine’s ideas have really maximised the value of our park outlook and have made the most of the smallish spaces we have in our house.
We found the process of working with Jasmine to be an easy and fun experience and really appreciated that she listened hard to our needs and wishes, but at the same time provided ideas and options that really pushed us to think as well. A great deal was achieved through the consultations and we always eagerly anticipated the next meeting.
As a result of Jasmine’s advice we continue to be delighted with our home environment day after day. We love it!
Port Melbourne bathroom
My bathroom which sounded simple enough: I wanted beautiful space, with a big deep bath in which I could relax with a glass of champagne; I wanted the bath separate from the shower; and the laundry had to be fit into the small, irregularly shaped space.
From the outset I had the sense that Jasmine was genuinely concerned to ensure that my experience of the project be as hassle free as possible, and that the end product would meet my expectations. Jasmine demonstrated a genuine enthusiasm for the project; she wanted to create a bathroom for me and my home, and not simply roll out another version an existing model.
Jasmine actually listened to what I wanted. She found a bath which met my specifications and which fit into the space, and then designed a lovely space around it making the most of the room’s irregular shape. By presenting the plans with tile, cabinetry and bench top samples, Jasmine helped me to see what the room could become. She also recommended a cabinet maker and a builder who would bring the plans to life.
Jasmine’s commitment to making sure I got what I wanted was illustrated by what she did with the tiles. When I said that the first tiles were not quite right, Jasmine found an alternative with which I was happy. I thought we were done but unknown to me, Jasmine kept looking for an option that more closely fit the initial idea. She found them, and I am delighted to say that they are a striking anchor in a beautiful room.
I am not a person who would ever say that I enjoyed a renovation. But Jasmine and her team at Jasmine McClelland Design delivered on the promise to make the process as straight forward as possible. The planning meetings were used to get a clear understanding of my requirements and priorities, and to answer my many questions. With plans in place and decisions on fittings and fixtures made, I was able to get on with my own job and leave Jasmine and the team to theirs. I was kept up to date with regular progress reports (including pictures). The bathroom was delivered on time and on budget. The finished product is much more beautiful than I imagined. I am delighted to recommend Jasmine McClelland Design.
Clifton Hill home
We have used Jasmine McClelland Design on 2 occasions, for a kitchen and family room renovation and for interior design advice. Jasmine is terrific to deal with - enthusiastic and creative with a great sense of colour and texture.
It is with much pleasure and great satisfaction that we recommend Jasmine McClelland Design.
For several years we had been trying to renovate our kitchen but couldn’t come up with a workable design. A large space that didn’t function well, with too many doors and windows and not enough preparation surfaces or storage. Friends, builders and carpenters all offered advice but nothing seemed appropriate or right for us. So we just lived with it!
Then a friend recommended Jasmine and the minute we met her we knew we were going to get a good result. She listened to our ideas, queried our requirements, our likes and dislikes and took copious notes. I have a major back problem and had been told by a specialist to get a kitchen that didn’t require me to bend too much, so it was really important for us to get a design that would work for us.
When Jasmine returned and showed us her design outline we wanted to say ‘Ahhh yes, of course’; Because it all looked so simple and so right… why hadn’t we thought of this earlier? It was modern, clean, and practical and worked around the other rooms in our home. It also featured so many of the things we love, natural wood, colour etc. She took a non functioning room and by simply rearranging a few things and moving a few doorways managed to create a massive pantry, let in loads of natural light and find room for masses of bench space. It was perfect!
We had our own builders and cabinet makers and Jasmine happily liaised with them over the renovation. Charlie, our cabinet maker, claims that Jasmine’s design is the best kitchen design he has ever made and that she was a pleasure to work with. We only had to talk to Jasmine a couple of times after we received the design plans as she had factored everything into her design package, suppliers, colours, products etc, everything we needed to move ahead with the job.
We will never be able to thank Jasmine enough for her amazing design. Our kitchen was once a room that used to really bring us down and that we hated using. Now this beautiful room has become the centre of our home and we spend hours sitting there, talking, drinking, cooking etc. So much so that we no longer want to go out as much in the evening, we’re now happy to just stay home and relax in our lovely new room.
We really want to thank Jasmine for her intuition, her skill and her wonderful design. We are so grateful for everything she did for us.
