What people say about Studio Black Interiors.
I highly recommend Maria as her attention to detail, reliability, hard work and passion for what she does are second to none. Maria is pleasantly approachable which makes it very easy for us to express our building work through her design and styling. We look forward to working with Maria on our future projects.Robert Paragalli
My wife and I hired Studio Black Interiors to help furnish a new house that we’d recently moved into and are extremely happy with the result. Our brief was to furnish living, dining and outdoor areas from scratch and to help my wife and find an aesthetic that was contemporary, but in keeping with our 1950’s timber cottage home. At every step of the process, Maria was helpful and professional. Her documentation of furniture options, colours and finishes helped to simplify what seemed like an overwhelming number of choices, and made the process simple and stress free. Maria is also a great communicator – she was always at the other end of the phone or email and happy to answer any queries that we had, no matter how big or small.
We absolutely loved Maria’s suggestions and it was clear that she had really taken the time to understand our lifestyle, preferences and budget. We were also really impressed by her extensive knowledge of local and interstate suppliers – it provided us with a much greater range of options to consider and opened our eyes to products that we would not otherwise have thought of.
We could not be happier with the overall look that Maria has helped us achieve. For the first time, we have a home with a coherent and stylish look, with the whole project coming in on time and on budget. We would certainly engage Studio Black Interiors again and would not hesitate to recommend Maria.Grant Nay, Canberra
A renovation is a significant investment so you want to make sure you get the planning right. That’s why Maria’s unique service is invaluable and exactly what I needed.
Maria assessed the plans that I’d had drawn up and offered excellent advice to make sure the finished product would work both functionally and aesthetically.
The choices are endless when it comes to selecting finishes and I wish I’d consulted Maria earlier. She’s very passionate, knowledgeable and goes above and beyond. I am very thankful for her advice and guidance.Claire Corbitt, Perth
We engaged Maria Cerne of Studio Black Interiors to advise us on the renovation of two bathrooms and a powder room.
Maria’s service was exceptional. She was unfailingly patient and gracious, as well as being knowledgeable, diligent and thorough.
She produced a comprehensive briefing pack, which included a photo mood board, prices for fixtures and fittings, floor plan layouts and detailed budgets. These were extremely helpful for us in our decision-making processes.
Maria sourced and selected many product samples for us to view, saving us a great deal of time and effort.
Her budgeting expertise was invaluable, and she assisted us in fine-tuning the budget for the project.
Maria has a very friendly and supportive manner, and she is a delight to work with. Nothing was too much trouble for her, and we felt fully supported by her at all times.
We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional interior design consultant to advise and work with them on any renovation project, large or small.Warwick & Di Ryan, Canberra
We recently renovated our apartment bathrooms (main, toilet + ensuite) and engaged Studio Black’s (Maria’s) stylish eye.
Maria provided expert advice around the renovation and design process, from recommending suppliers, budget guidelines and decorating style tips, saving us both time and renovation stress.
She completely understood our style and vision for both bathrooms, adding valuable advice, in particular with her selection of tiles for the spaces, which are perfect!
We highly recommend Studio Black Interiors to anyone looking to modernise, renovate or interior decorate their homes. Can’t wait to start on the next apartment space with Maria!Olivia & Shane Anderson, Canberra
Maria at Studio Black Interiors has done an amazing job at designing our new one bedroom serviced apartment format as part of renovations in one of our CBD apartment buildings.
She has a great eye for practical yet modern and clean looking designs down to the smallest detail. We look forward to working with her again.John Mostovoy, Canberra
We really enjoyed working with Maria, she was very friendly and a great designer. She listened carefully to what we wanted, and suggested really great ideas that suited our styles and preferences. Maria made it so easy for us, saving us so much time but still keeping us involved. She completed the work much more quickly than expected, and it was great value for money. Would definitely recommend Studio Black Interiors!Sophie Wright, Canberra
A big thank you for all the hard work you did on styling our lounge room. You turned our boring, drab front room into a space we all love to spend time in. You have such an amazing talent!Rebecca & Chris Fusca, Canberra
I hired Maria, from Studio Black Interiors to help me style my home before we sold it at auction. We have a large home with many different spaces that needed extra products, extra colour and extra character!
Maria spent a long time with me discussing various options for every room of the house. Maria has such a good eye and talent, she knew straight away what would work and what wouldn’t. She knew the colours, textures and accessories which would just ‘make’ the room. These included using some of my own things and also purchasing some items.
Maria was very thoughtful and intuitive in providing me with different options for purchase, knowing the budget we had. I was so impressed by Maria’s work and the way our house turned out after her styling.
Her kind nature, along with her natural talent made working with her an absolute pleasure. She talked through the whole process and journey with me and it felt like she was always happy to help with anything. I would recommend Maria to anyone looking for some styling and design advice, she is amazing!Rebecca Fusca, Canberra
