If you want guests to say ‘wow’ when they enter your home, then Jane Thomson is the designer for you.
We renovated our federation home 15 years ago. We hadn’t thought of employing a designer until we saw what Jane had achieved with a friend’s home. Now, other friends have asked us for Jane’s contact details after seeing her work at our home.
Just recently we decided to have additional decorating work done, albeit on a smaller scale and once again Jane has come up with ideas that we would never have thought of ourselves.
Jane’s skills are multi-faceted but we particularly admire her skill with colour.
Frankly, there is no area of interior design that she does not excel in earning the respect of our builders and making architectural suggestions that really were fantastic. Things that were never thought of by our architect. She is very naturally creative.
She is lovely to work with and quickly interprets your requirements and marries them with your personalities and importantly your budget.
She is extremely professional and responds immediately to any questions. We can’t recommend her highly enough.

We are so pleased we asked you to help us re-design our two rooms. You have been a delight to work with and we loved the process and the result.
Your enthusiasm and energy were infectious, your choices were right and you gave us choices within choices.
Perhaps the part I loved the most was our visits to the wholesalers. It felt like we were walking through art galleries with so many beautiful things that we would never have found had we been searching by ourselves.
I will certainly recommend you in future to friends

My experience with Jane, from Downie Thomson Interior Design over the past 20 years (2 homes) has always been fun and exciting, creating a fresh look with unique touches & finishes, that are frequently commented by visitors to my home.
Jane is efficient with an excellent work ethic! She can work within any budget, often saving time and money. I highly recommend using Janes services.

Jane was simply amazing. Arrived on time, was prepared with ideas and styled my duplex with my furniture. She suggested other pieces of furniture that would enhance the relaxed atmosphere of the living area.
I would thoroughly recommend Jane to anyone wanting a Property Stylist. Lovely person

Styling and furnishing pre-sale was something unfamiliar to my wife and I. We approached quite a few stylists and noticed at the outset that Jane was less traditional and not set/tied to procedures, listened and communicated well and offered a number of alternative approaches.
We and our Real Estate Agent are very happy with her styling settings and we believe her experience and insight will be instrumental in delivering a solid sales result,….

I had Jane from Downie Thomson Interior Design, Design and specify our exterior and areas of our interior.
My experience with Jane was unforgettable. She is a very caring person, whom cares for her clients at a very professional level. She made the experience so smooth and easy. Her work is an amazing.
A work of art that you would fall in love with. She always came prepared with comprehensive mood boards to present, which gave me and my husband the perfect idea of how it would look.
She cares for her clients as if they are family. I truly respected that about her.
I would highly recommend Downie Thomson interior design to anyone, simply because you will be very pleased with their customer service and the outcome.

Jane Thomson designed, project-managed and styled my city Pied-a-Terre while I was living abroad. Jane certainly thinks ‘outside the box’ and presented, and executed, a gorgeous design to suit my requirements. Her designs are aesthetically stunning but also user friendly and a contemporary style that’s not seasonal.
Happy to recommend Jane to anyone looking for a new fresh look.
Catherine - Potts Point NSW
We have known Jane Thomson both as a design adviser and as a friend now for several years. She is extremely charming and highly competent person, who easily communicates with the wide range of people she meets and deals with in her roles as a designer, actor and presenter.
In her design work Jane has an extraordinary eye for design solutions in a wide range of situations and for clients with varying tastes and budgets. She is always creative, diplomatic and focussed on producing the best outcome for the project at hand.
She has a natural eye for “what works”, and is also an impressive draftswoman to boot!
Janes interpersonal skills are a real strong point. She is an enormously likeable individual, who can communicate enthusiasm and engender it in others. Her on camera personality is warm, relaxed and quietly authoritative. She is a kind and generous person with a wide range of interests, which comes across in her presentation.
Jane is an efficient and principled business woman who runs a successful and respected design company while simultaneously furthering her career in show business. This is a balancing act which she achieves gracefully and well.
As two people who have always worked in the media, we greatly admire Jane and believe she is a truly talented person who has real potential to achieve success in not only business but in the television business…

Twenty-three years ago, we approached Jane Thomson to design the renovation of your home in Lilli Pilli which involved a complete colour scheme, a new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, window coverings, soft furnishings etc. We were ecstatic with the results.
She created a stunning overall scheme, which was still functional and comfortable. Our house was transformed into a wonderful family home, which reflected our taste and personalities.
Seventeen years ago, we built a new home in a rural setting and Jane designed the kitchen, she won an MBA award. Bathrooms, the cabinetry, the stunning timber doors with metal stud details, again the results were fantastic.
The house has such a strong identity and a welcoming feel. Jane incorporated and revamped [existing] furniture pieces we treasured into the design scheme, introducing beautiful fabrics and textures. The two-way fireplace constructed firm stone and wood, is truly the hub of the home.
Recently, Jane has renovated the outside areas of our home in Lilli Pilli. This design involved the restructuring of garden beds, suggested planting schemes, lighting schemes and the complete renovation of the pool area.
Once again, the results are stunning.
A contemporary make over with a classic, timeless feel, which creates a wonderful link to the house and invites you to come outside.
Currently Jane is redecorating our home as it was time for an update. The process of combining fabrics, colours and accessories is underway and can’t wait to see the final results.
History tells me we won’t be disappointed!…

“Over the years we had a traditional home that with Jane’s expertise was a home to be truly proud of.
We now live in an apartment styled with a modern touch that totally suits our way of life now we are retired, it is very grand and relaxed, this change Jane helped us with every detail, from shopping for furniture, wall hangings, lamps etc. re designing the kitchen and bathroom cupboards leaving every detail much easier for us.
I have also recommended Jane to our friends and family and they also amazed with her talent.
A lovely lady to do business with, always a very pleasant experience.
