Maria Cerne, Studio Black Interiors

Maria Cerne is the owner and interior designer of Studio Black Interiors

Hi there, I’m Maria and I am a little obsessed with interiors. Born to a commercial builder and a very stylish mama, building and style are in my genes.

Interior design is my ‘happy place’, my niche, which I discovered after managing the renovation and decoration of several residential properties, including a new build.

Recognising that completing a new build or renovation can often be daunting, and for some, an overwhelming task – I offer a one-on-one personalised service to create your customised, dream space.

As a qualified interior designer, let me help you create a space you love coming home to, a space that tells your story, that’s not only gorgeous, but functional and practical.

When not designing, I’m mum to two beautiful girls and married to Michael, my sports obsessed husband.


I will save you time and money

Interior design is my passion and I want to share it with you. I will pass on my tips, tricks, industry knowledge and experience to save you time and money. You will benefit from my supplier relationships and product knowledge. I will guide you on where to splurge and where to save, to make sure we meet your budget. No more trekking across town, visiting multiple suppliers every weekend for months on end. I will do the hard work for you.

I will make your home a space to enjoy and be proud of

You know that feeling when you walk into a home and it just feels good, where everything works cohesively together? I will work hard to understand how you live, how you want to live, and tailor every product choice and design to suit you, so you have a home to enjoy and spend time in.

I can walk the talk

I have renovated and built my own home, so I understand the feelings of being overwhelmed, not knowing where to start and unsure of how the whole renovation or build process works. Let me empower you with my industry knowledge to help you get the job done.
