If there were more stars, we would add them! We had never worked with an interior designer before, had a lounge we had underused and talked about for 10 years with no clear idea what to do, along with no desire to spend huge amounts of money. Found the wonderful Janet Cowper (Q Design) a bit randomly on line, but now can't imagine how we ever made a decision about our house without her. She is so lovely to deal with, brim full of ideas, figures out your own style and can guide you when you are going off track, has saintly patience and always listens carefully to what you are looking for. Janet delivers everything she promises and thanks to her services we have a beautiful lounge we actually use and get a great deal of joy from. She helped us with designing a fireplace, shelves, floor coverings. lighting, fabric, furniture decisions etc. and gave us confidence to make decisions that reflect us, not the latest trend. There's more - when we couldn't find a joiner to make our shelves, her husband Peter (check out Bespoke by Design), creator of absolutely exquisite furniture, helped us out. Pretty sure our mdf shelves weren't his most exciting project but the care and attention to detail both paid to our fabulous shelves surrounding our fireplace was above and beyond.
Janet came to our home to give us some ideas on renovation and where to place furniture and wall art within already renovated spaces. She made great practical suggestions on how to improve our space that will work within our budget. Her style guide will be a very helpful grounding tool going forward to work with while renovating. She has a sound knowledge of interior design and would highly recommend her if you have just moved into a home or have been living in a home for awhile and feel a bit lost on where to put furniture or what colours work well etc.
Janet was extremely helpful with the styling of my home during recent redecorating. She made the process of choosing colours and accessories really easy and had great vision. I have loved how my project has turned out and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again.
We have just had a lovely new kitchen installed which we are absolutely thrilled with. However we got stuck when it came to choosing the finishing touch - the tiles. That's where Janet came in. She was able to see very quickly where we needed colour and tiles. Our new kitchen now looks better than we ever dreamed with beautiful hand painted tiles in a gorgeous shade of green. The tiles show off our kitchen to perfection! Thank you Janet for your wonderful vision and giving us the confidence to be bold.
We are soon to place our home of many years on the market & approached Janet from QDesignSetvices.NZ to advise us of how we might give our lounge a lift. Janet came wirh a contemporary set of eyes, a creative flair & a deep product knowledge. We felt informed & empowered to make some simple changes that we are very happy with.
Janet has been a fantastic addition to the interior design of our house, highly recommend. She understood our brief clearly and provided easy to implement designs while still maintaining the wow factor and intricate design. While we still have some more work to do, she's helped guide us in the right direction with the colour palette and a consistent contemporary theme throughout. She has a fantastic eye for colour and her furnishing suggestions were always within our budget, so realistic. Janet clearly has a passion for what she does and this has always been evident in her consultations with us. She's approachable, friendly and listens. Well worth the investment!

We recently used Janet to help us with the renovations of our nearly 100 year old home. Our family home had not been renovated since the 70's and Janet's ideas were greatly appreciated- (and needed). Janet is professional but also has the ability to explain her ideas and visions in a very practical and down to earth manner. All of her colours and building ideas were spot on as we used them all. We are very happy with the result. Thank you Janet.

I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Q Design earlier this year. Janet was super easy to work alongside, we collaborated well expressing ideas and having fun along the way. Janet knows her stuff as can be seen in her Beach house project. I have no hesitation in recommending Q Design to anyone who is looking for inspiration.
