A great interior design transforms an interior space into a specific mood and feeling with layers of texture and character. However, achieving this result isn’t easy. For many, the sheer volume of interior options is overwhelming and the effective space planning can be difficult without experience. You need to know what the options are, and which combinations of furniture, furnishings and finishes will work toward the design goal. With our knowledge, expertise and experience we can help you create a special interior space where you feel welcome, while saving you time and significant amounts of money in the process.
We deliver interior design services with attention to detail for a large range of happy residential and commercial clients along the East Coast of Australia, operating from a Gold Coast base. All our interior projects begin with a great conceptual design that guides the project and aligns to the design goal. You engage us to get the interior design outcome you want, in the best time, and for the most optimal budget. With over twenty years of interior design experience & a well connected supplier network we’re able to help you take the guesswork out of producing beautiful interior spaces that welcome you in and want you to stay.
With the endless range of furniture and furnishing options out there, we know where to look for the perfect fit piece for your design and can help you save weeks if not months sourcing the particular pieces for your project.
We take the hassle out of sourcing and selecting interior pieces for your project by dealing directly with suppliers on item options, availabilities and in coordinating delivery schedules which can go back and forth for weeks.
Doing this DIY and hoping everything will come together ok can be a costly exercise and a logistics nightmare. As your design lead, we can help you create a design concept and execute smoothly on the plan that comes together beautifully and on budget.
We maintain relationships with a large network of suppliers often able to secure trade discounts on your behalf with pricing far below the standard retail offering, saving you money and reducing overall cost, especially on medium to larger scale projects with larger procurement lists.

When we work with clients on a complete interior design the process outlined below shows the typical phase stages. We also work with clients on on a case by case basis and on individual phase elements. For example, you might just want help selecting items, or with the design concept. Whatever stage you’re at, just reach out to have a chat and we can see how we might add value to your project.
We begin each project with an initial design consultation in order to learn everything we need to best understand the scope of works and the project requirements.
Once we understand the project scope we create a great conceptual design to guide the project and ensure that we execute smoothly on the plan.
Following the conceptual design we go about sourcing & selecting the interior items, hunting down individual pieces and liaising with our suppliers on options and availability.
Working with the suppliers & you we help coordinate the interior items delivery schedule and can be involved in the positioning & placement overseeing the final install.
In my early teenage years I was constantly rearranging rooms wherever I went. I didn’t know then that these were the early signs of my passion today.
I gained an advanced diploma in Interior Design from the TAFE Design Centre Enmore going on to invest 13 years working with Sydney-based design firms before starting my own practice in 2013.
I have developed a unique relaxed organic and earthy design style, where I love to combine texture with clean lines to create spaces that have warmth and character.
Working up and down the East Coast of Australia I have worked on a variety of hospitality, retail and residential projects over the years.
If you're looking for an interior designer who can transform your space into a beautiful and functional haven, Elizabeth May Interior Designer is the perfect choice. Her exceptional skills and customer service will exceed your expectations and leave you with a space you'll love for years to come.
I can't recommend Liz enough. We've worked together on two houses across interior architectural design, lighting, spatial design and the full gamut of furnishings. Her patience, decisiveness, and clever eye for colour and texture (and quirks that make the difference), has made working with her the best part of those builds. She has brought immeasurable value to both those projects and she'd be the first person I'd call if I was mad enough to do it all again!
Elizabeth is exactly what I was looking for in an interior designer! I had ideas of what I wanted, just didn't know where to start. The professional brief from her at the start was exactly what I was after - something other designers didn't even do! Her ability to pull everything together and present options helped us immensely; she does all the hard work for you! I would definitely recommend Elizabeth!
I contacted Elizabeth May to advise me on choices to redecorate and modernise our Gold Coast apartment. I could not be happier. She is a delight to work with, reliable, calm and contactable, and has magnificent taste. I am so happy with the result. I found that we could get a great result with a moderate budget.
Elizabeth was an absolute pleasure to work with. Creative, attentive to the brief, and professional from start to finish. She has an eye for detail, is adaptive and never short of ideas to address the difficult or challenging aspects of the design. Could not have achieved the overall look and feel of my home without her involvement.
Elizabeth May is such a talented interior designer, I had the pleasure of working with her on our recent house in Tallebudgera. Her eye for detail and texture does not go un noticed in our interiors and soft furnishings. Lizzy is such a delightful lady and always responds promptly! I love all of our furniture choices and could not be happier with how our house has turned out.
"Liz was amazing from start to finish. I find home decorating quite overwhelming, but she presented me with enough ideas to get my creative juices flowing. She stuck to the brief but added her own personal flair to them which really brought the house to life, and worked seamlessly with my builder which was such a relief!"
"Elizabeth worked with me to fit out our hair and beauty salon in Byron Bay. She nailed our relaxed beach vibe with natural materials, clean lines and amazing prints. Elizabeth was involved in every aspect of design, from sourcing items, coming up with innovative solutions to various challenges, designing custom pieces and selecting soft furnishings. From the initial consultation through to completion, her advice was invaluable. We love the end result!"
