The Plume Design Gold Coast mother and daughter team has renovated and styled properties in Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia for the past 15 years before moving to the Gold Coast and setting up there in 2012.
The team complement each other perfectly with Shelley being a qualified landscape designer and project manager, and Gaylene being a colour and styling specialist.
Shelley (owner) confesses to being "a property design and renovation tragic who has been obsessed with all things property for the past 25 years."
She undertook her first room transformation at age 14, after saving her pocket money for months, painting her bedroom and purchasing a new doona cover. After seeing the result, a love affair with beautiful interiors commenced. As a young adult, Shelley went to enrol in an interior decorating course and was devastated to find an art portfolio was a necessary pre-requisite. As she wasn't a skilled artist, Shelley turned to garden design instead and found this perfectly married her love affair with design and nature.
Since then Shelley has completed studies in colour, styling and project management.
