We engaged Angela Steyn & Co to undertake the design component of the renovation of our art deco home in Mosman. Angela and Andre have been very professional and supportive and have made the process of renovation feel effortless. From the planning stage right through to the delivery of the renovation concept, their attention to detail and sophisticated style has really impressed us. Angela and Andre truly are a winning combination and we can only highly recommend them to anyone seeking building design or style advice.

It has been a real pleasure working with Angela to style our home this year. We bought a quirky, dated home with lovely bones and gave Angela the transformation challenge. She has expertly guided us to select lighting, furniture, furnishings and art to bring our home to life and flexibly work with the pieces we wanted to keep. Angela is very flexible and commercially pragmatic, and has extremely high quality standards. She has a fabulous eye and clear vision, and also has the rare gifts of being so warm, fun and easy to work with that the process was really enjoyable and not stressful or intimidating. Everything installed was perfect, we are ecstatically happy just ‘being’ in our home and I can’t recommend her more highly. We look forward to re-engaging on Phase 2 of our renovation next year (if she isn’t completely booked out by then!)

After doing an amazing full front office renovation for us a number of years ago at our northern beaches real estate agency we employed Angela Steyn & Co to assist us in revamping and restyling our home we had built just over five years ago. Although the house was new we had moved in with the intention of doing some more aesthetic work to it which did not eventuate. Angela and Andre’s creative flair and eye for detail came to the rescue. We finally ended up with the stylish beach house we had dreamed of . From a beautiful wall unit to stylish soft furnishings the detail was exactly as we had wanted with many extra little touches as well. The quality of Angela and Andre’s work, the professionalism of the trades people they use and their friendly personable approach make them a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was a trouble and Angela’s calm no fuss demeanour made working with her a pleasure. If you are looking to restyle, revamp or refresh your home or workplace we could only highly recommend Angela Steyn & Co. They are talented, professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

When we moved into our house, we knew it had so much potential, we just didn't know exactly what the vision should be or how to go about achieving it.
Angela's design vision was just beautiful, and we instantly knew it was right for us. She really created a style that suited us and the house. We also valued that
she was really practical and kept our budget in mind throughout the project. We just love being in the rooms she's decorated. It's become a warm, inviting, peaceful environment to be in. Thanks Angela! We can't wait to complete all the renovation work now.

Angela is a gem! She and Andre provided the interior design for our renovation, which threw up some quite tricky issues because it involved melding a new and modern addition with an existing, heritage listed, 125 year old home. Their design, which included finishes to teenagers' bedrooms, new bathrooms and WCs, laundry, kitchen and dining spaces, was inspired. Their presentation of the design, including using 3D perspectives, and their detailed finishes schedules incorporating photographs of the selected finish / fitting, with precise product descriptors, were superb. Our builder described their drawings as some of the most detailed and easy to follow he had worked with.
Angela and Andre met deadlines, were punctual for on-site meetings, and were always available to answer any queries.
We have now been living in the newly renovated space for about 4 months, and it works superbly. The kitchen cabinetry, as with all joinery detailed by them, looks wonderful, is ergonomically clever, and just works!

My husband and I engaged Angela to provide some advice on our bathroom, laundry and kitchen renovations to our home in Manly. We both adore Angela. She is highly professional and full of great practical and aesthetically beautiful solutions. She is totally reliable and was up front about costs from the beginning. My husband and I also found that we were both suffering from renovation decision fatigue, so we loved being able to delegate decisions to Angela to free up our own time. Angela managed to make us feel inspired and excited at a time when we were both exhausted and frustrated by our renovations.
Angela helped us to redesign our laundry in a way we could not have even imagined. This involved building out the laundry wall to make the laundry space bigger and installing sliding white plantation shutters for ventilation and design. Angela worked with us to find bathroom tiles and fittings that my husband and I were both happy with, which was no easy feat considering that we had quite different visions and priorities. She helped us to strategically place a large wall mirror to maximize the views from our apartment. She helped us to choose a calming coastal paint palette. She also helped us to select beautiful bedroom, living room and balcony furniture. Angela recommended a builder and project manager who we went on to engage and have also been very happy with. We've taken up all of Angela's suggestions and have been delighted with the results.

Angela understood implicitly the requirements for this project and produced outstanding solutions for this small house. She listened to my brief, and offered ideas for the most aesthetic and, more importantly, comfortable options. I love walking into my house and every single time being made happy by how beautiful the space looks. This is what interior design is about.
NORTH SYDNEY OFFICE
“The presentation and feel of an office is key for many reasons however from our experience difficult to do. Our brand and image to clients, providers and staff we rate as very important.
Angela met with some of our team and underwent a fact finding mission that allowed her to build a recommendation based on what she heard. The process was well documented and her communication transparent at all times. The end result from our perspective was highly pleasing and confidently recommend Angela to any business.”
