Build a home you love

Having previously worked in Christchurch in the the midst of the city’s extensive rebuild, I have significant experience working with people building new homes.

I remove the multitude of decisions out of the stressful process of building.  I also give you clarity and assurance that the end result will be one you love.

The  services you require will depend on your home build. This might include any or all of the following:


Full interior design solution for your new home – tailored to your needs/personal style/architecture.


Design boards for each room –  which will include spatial layout, colours/materials, and furniture


Selected materials, colours, flooring, kitchen, door hardware, and other materials


Furniture and furnishings specification – including ordering and project management. 


Styling – including sourcing everything from headboards and cushions to vases and lamps.


Window furnishings – full project management  from selection to installation.

Expert Design Skills

When embarking on the exciting journey of building my clients’ dream homes, I, Heidi at The Room Editor, am their ultimate partner in crafting a space that perfectly aligns with their vision and lifestyle.

With my keen understanding of architectural elements and a flair for creativity, I help my clients make the most of their new home’s potential. Whether they’re seeking a comprehensive interior design solution right from the blueprint stage or require guidance on selecting materials, colors, and finishes that harmonize seamlessly with their architectural design, my expertise is their invaluable resource.

My meticulous attention to detail, extensive knowledge of the latest trends, and strong relationships with top-notch suppliers ensure that their new home will not only be a reflection of their personal style but also a functional and aesthetically pleasing sanctuary. I take pride in transforming their new home build into an awe-inspiring masterpiece that encapsulates their unique taste and preferences, ensuring that every corner of their dream home is a true reflection of them.

Heidi’s Design Process

First contact and initial meeting

When you first contact me, we'll have a chat about your home over the phone - and you can ask me questions to check I'm the right designer for your project (and vice versa).  We can then schedule an in-home consultation.

This in-home consultation is currently $195 (plus gst) for up to 90 minutes. It is customised to your project. Usually, this consultation also allows me to understand the scope of the job so I can provide you with a proposal and fee for the interior design work required.

Heidi helps clients all over the wellington region

Here is some of Heidi’s recent work

It turned out to be one of my favourite rooms to spend time in.


Heidi was an absolute pleasure to work with on our new build. We had a million ideas for things that we liked (colours, wallpaper, feature lighting, curtains) and Heidi gave us feedback on what worked as well as made some really great suggestions on ways we could improve on those ideas.

I was nervous using one colour on all four walls of what was to be my office. But since Heidi had already given us great suggestions I went with it for the entire room. I remember Heidi telling me I wouldn’t regret it. It turned out to be one of my favourite rooms to spend time in.

We would highly recommend Heidi


We were lucky enough to have Heidi help us from the very beginning of our new build project. We were really impressed with the way Heidi managed to help us create ‘our home’ not just ‘a home’. 

She had a knack of helping us narrow down what we really liked and then made it happen for us, finding those elusive colours or products. Her sense of style and colour is fantastic and we felt secure making decisions with her guidance.

We would highly recommend Heidi as a wonderfully patient and fun person to work with, who really knows what works.

it's a small cost for a huge return


I’d never used an interior designer before but I knew I needed help to create a cohesive vision for our home. Heidi was the perfect choice. She took time to get to know us and how we live, then helped us find a common style. She challenged us to make smart design decisions that we would never have thought of ourselves and which have totally met our brief (and budget). She pulled together the whole picture and helped with small details that we just don’t have the time or skills to do. 

The house is looking elegant with its own sense of character. I feel more confident making decisions about the house now because I understand what I’m working towards. 

I highly recommend Heidi. Using her services was the best investment we made in our house – it’s a small cost for a huge return.
