What our clients are saying

Cindy is very talented and has incredible knowledge when suggesting her inspiring designs. Our building in Neutral Bay looked tired and lifeless and Cindy’s professionalism helped us to improve it to a happier and lighter place for our residents. We would certainly recommend ARA Interiors to our friends and associates.

Cindy’s passion for Interior Design is evident, I have had the pleasure of mentoring her for the last couple of years and have worked parallel with her on several projects. She is service oriented, diligent and is an incredible implementor that constantly delivers above and beyond.

Gavin Dowling | Clients Ara InteriorsGavin Dowling, Chief Operating Officer at Education Centre of Australia (ECA)

Words cannot possibly describe how amazing Cindy is. She transformed our not-for-profit and took our showroom from an op-shop to a boutique. Cindy is professional and has excellent communication, with no task being too big. We were blown away by everything she did; including negotiating with all the suppliers and taking ownership of the whole project. Our team and clients will be forever grateful for her kindness.

Sally Hetherington | Ara Interiors TestimonialSally Hetherington, Operations Manager at Dress For Success, Sydney

Cindy is a very professional and talented designer. She met with us about designing the interior of our business foyer and took note of all our expectations and concerns along with our client’s needs. She listened closely to our peculiarities and made fast amendments to suit us. Cindy has a great eye for detail and she listened closely to all stakeholders involved in this project. We all feel very happy for choosing ARA Interiors as we now have a space that will better define our client’s needs.

Commercial Interior Design | Ara Interiors TestimonialJames Lew, Marketing and Communications Manager at UNSW Business School

Cindy redesigned our Business School Student Centre Consulting Rooms. I was given a brief to complete, so she could understand our requirements and budget. She then designed the lighting, furnishings etc within our budget and coordinated and contacted suppliers to arrange ordering and delivery. She turned our consulting rooms into a very comfortable environment for students and staff. The team, as well as myself are very pleased and proud to showcase the work space she created.

Cindy and I worked together in a project here in New Caledonia and she was amazing. She was highly professional, and she kept me informed every step of the way. She did not try to push her ideas onto me or the client, but instead she listened to their concerns, wants and needs. I recommend her to anyone!

I had a pleasure working with Cindy from ARA Interiors. I can confirm a high level or professional qualities and positive attitude. Will surely work with her again.

Anton Gorlin | Clients Ara InteriorsAnton Gorlin, Senior .NET Developer at WiseTech Global

We got her concept design package to get some guidance on how to get our first baby’s nursery styled. Cindy came over, listen to our ideas and wishes and implemented changes on spot! She also measured the space and made great suggestions of colours, furniture and layout. Later, she sent us the floor plan and super realistic drawings so all we had to do was to follow her instructions. Zero waste of time or stress and got the room we wanted despite the limitations of a rental property. So worth it!

Liana Linhares | Clients Ara InteriorsLiana Linhares, Yoga Instructor

Extremely honest and trustworthy, with a keen eye for style. Felt totally safe in her hands. Love that she is local to Coogee too.

Emma Gilmour | Clients Ara InteriorsEmma Gilmour, Manager at SELC

As Cindy’s former teacher, I saw her put much thought into the research, design development, colour exploration and final production of her work. She applies an intelligent and sensitive approach to her designs which consistently results in successful outcomes.
Cindy has a natural sense of design and balance, a good command over design mediums and combined with her newfound knowledge of colour theories and design techniques each and every piece of work really stood out in a class of high achievement as elegant, unique and creative.

Alison Macfie | Clients Ara InteriorsAlison Macfie, Design Teacher at ISCD, Sydney

Cindy was a delight to work with. When we bought our first holiday home in France, we knew she would have the eye to help us despite the distance. We consulted with her and she listened to all out wishes, concerns and needs very carefully. We were surprised with her speed to deliver the project without compromising the quality of the work. She nailed our desires and specified each detail so we can take over the project on our own. It took a lot of pressure from our family and saved us so much time and money! We loved her attention to details and vision!
