Maria Cerne is the owner and interior designer of Studio Black Interiors
I am a little obsessed with interiors. Born to a commercial builder and a very stylish mama, building and style are in my genes.
Having worked for over 17 years in advertising and marketing, I now combine this experience with my passion for interiors, styling and design. In 2016, I took a leap of faith, quit my job, went back to school and created Studio Black Interiors. I am now a qualified Interior Designer and Decorator.
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.
With my keen eye for detail, and using an intuitive approach to styling and design, 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.
WHY WORK WITH ME?
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.
I have helped many clients to renovate or build their dream homes. My work has also been published in multiple interior design magazines, such as Home Beautiful, Inside Out, Home Design, Adore Magazine and Kitchens and Bathrooms Quarterly.
