The Bank Apartment - Luxe Retreat

I wanted to create a masterpiece - I wanted the highest end furnished (short term rental) apartment in the city.

From my first meeting with Trisha Lee, I had a good feeling that the apartment would turn out spectacular. I told her that she could design the apartment any way she liked, I was only interested in an amazing end result and a unit that I could book solid every month. Trisha Lee came up with brilliant ideas, things that I would never have thought of!

She purchased all of the furniture and decorations for the apartment, and also co-ordinated her team of tradespeople. The end result was truly incredible. Thanks to Trisha Lee, I have the most sought after penthouse in Southbank: I now have it renting solidly 20-25 nights a month, it is booked out almost a year in advance. Trisha Lee is a very honest, professional and dedicated person. I have the utmost confidence ad respect for her based on my dealings with her over the past 6 months. I can highly recommend her interior design services and will be definitely contacting her to decorate my next Melbourne apartment!

Kitchen & Bathroom Renovations, Diamond Creek

We hired Trisha Lee to advise us on the structural renovations and interior design for our home in David Hockney Drive. My wife and I were very excited with the finished product, it was high end and whole process was very smooth. We have used Trisha Lee's company, Vintage Green (now Pleased to Bijou Design), in the past. She is great to work with and attention to detail is outstanding, always resulting in a great finished product. Trisha Lee has completed several projects for our family and we will continue to use Pleased to Bijou in the future.

Luxury Apartment Fit Out, Southbank

2204 living evening small fie.png

We live in the US and purchased a small apartment in Melbourne. We wanted to have the apartment decorated and ready to move in to.

Trisha Lee listened to our thoughts and idea and asked great questions to ensure she understood what look and feel we desired. Her initial design/mood boards and pictures were right on target. It was so nice to have someone who truly listened to us and responded so accurately.

She also enhanced our thoughts. She challenged our thinking and ideas appropriately and provided us with alternatives - all which we appreciated and many of which were adopted. It was so refreshing to have a true partner.

Once decisions were made, she followed through perfectly.

She didn't have immediate access to the apartment as it was still under construction, but she worked well with drawings and schematics and was able to easily adapt when access was finally available. She was conscientious of our needs and budget, and she was very creative with storage options. Everything was very well though out and she was able to communicate effectively with us despite the long distance and time zone challenges. 

Trisha Lee did a great job giving us a clear understanding of where we stood and what the budget impact of our decisions were prior to making the purchases. We never had any surprises as to the overall cost of the project. She kept us very well informed.

When the day came for us to visit the finished apartment for the first time, she had everything all set up, not just for move in, but for immediate living. Not only was everything installed already but she took the extra effort to have everything washed and cleaned - beds made, dishes and cutlery cleaned, stored and ready to use, bathrooms, kitchen and pantry stocked with supplies and food. She had even tested out the appliances to ensure they worked properly. After a 20 hour flight, it was a joy to be able to simply come in, relax and enjoy.

We were so fortunate to find Trisha Lee - she was exactly what we needed. We will be using her again for sure and we highly recommend her services.
