"Kate & Lara make a creative Interior Designer and Stylist team, and are an absolute pleasure to work with. Lara has a natural sense of style and eye-catching signature statements. A skilled designer, Lara is able to plan an entire house. Also incredibly organized, she can de-clutter anything.  Kate is an inspirational seamstress who can whip-up soft furnishings from scatter cushions, lounge covers and Ottoman covers to your design. An exceedingly talented artists in her own right, Kate has applied her knowledge of fabrics to create her unique hand-painted textiles. With plenty of fun in the mix, she brings a wealth of background knowledge to her work, adeptly making creative projects a great experience.


In their venture Full House, Kate and Lara have joined forces - doing what they do best – accessible, tailored, creative solutions. I can highly recommend this mother and daughter design duo !

Sometimes a few simple tweaks are enough to transform a space completely and Lara, Interior Designer alongside Kate, with her hand painted fabrics achieved exactly that with our renovation brief.  Lara's designs exude warmth, sophistication and are effortless, whilst Kate takes an individual approach to her custom hand-painted fabrics with unique results.  Between them they were able to maximise the sense of space we required with clever styling.  


With thanks,

Your clients Chris & Dee Bandt, Onkara Street, Buderim. QLD



We asked Lara from Full House Designs to see if she had any ideas with some old chairs that we had. She suggested that we change the colour and make the chairs a lot darker and recover them with a hand painted faux Zebra print. This choice had a great meaning for us as we are originally from Africa. The end result was amazing. The quality of the work done was impeccable and we receive compliments on these two chairs every time we have guests. I would highly recommend the girls at Full House Designs. Their ideas are fresh, their work is exceptional and their attention to detail is flawless. This reflects in their clients needs not only to details but to the clients needs and wants ........… Thank - you Full House, love your work.

I have had the pleasure of being a guest in Lara and Kate's Full House, and experiencing exactly what they stand for as designers, stylers and creatives. Their designs and the stories behind each statement piece are fascinating. You definitely feel at home in their Full House, and they have created a design that is sophisticated and yet feels completely comfortable. There are retreat spaces, beautiful comfortable sofas and the cushions! Oh how I love the cushions! Lara has an amazing eye for putting a room together, and Kate's handiwork is impeccable. Together, they are design force to be reckoned with. 

I cannot WAIT for them to style my office space when we move into our new premises.
