Testimonials

After a recommendation from a business acquaintance we employed Kim from Parkhurst Design to redesign our Customer Lounge and Board Room. Being Mercedes-Benz, the quality and finish had to be of the highest standard. Not only were we very impressed but we also receive positive comments from customers regularly. An international Motor Industry trainer who travels the world believes we have the best Board Room he has ever seen.
After working with Kim on our last home we have now engaged her to work with our Architect and to oversee the interior design of our new home which we have just started to build. We have no hesitation in recommending Kim, we have found her to be truly professional and a pleasure to work with.

I feel very privileged to have known Kim from Parkhurst Design since 2005 when she came highly recommended to assist me with the renovation of a commercial office.  I could see immediately that Kim had a unique ability with the use of colour.  Since this time, I have been lucky to have had Kim assist me with many renovations and a new house build choosing all interior colours, wallpapers and furnishings as well as exterior colours.
Kim is always professional, listens, and is therefore very understanding of your requirements.  She is very easy to deal with, fun to work with and she always completes the project in the time frame required.
I would not hesitate to ask Kim for assistance with any future project I might have and would be most appreciative to have Kim's input.  I know I can leave the interior design side of any project to Kim whom I trust to come up with the perfect solution."

"I initially contacted Kim to help with the selection of colours on the exterior and interior of our new home.  Kim was quick to identify our needs and incorporate our ideas while enabling us to keep to budget.  After one hour Kim gave us confidence to contract her further to help select furniture, window, light fittings and accessories for our home.  Because of her involvement our home is unique, comfortable, stylish but still a home.  Kim was so easy to work with and I would not hesitate to work with her again and recommend her to others."

"Kim has worked with me on a number of projects over the past few years.  I have always been impressed with her ability and willingness to listen to the clients brief and tailor the interior colours and fabrics to best suit that clients individual and personal taste.
Kim is also not afraid to be adventurous and risqué with colours when the style of project permits.
Kim is somewhat like a breath of fresh air in marine interior design in that she in not dictatorial and will adapt her own thoughts to that of the client and designer to have the end result one that we can all be justly proud."

I have known Kim Forkert of Parkhurst Design for over 15 years through her interior design work that she has done on both business and private colleagues and friends of mine.  When my wife and I decided to totally refurbish our beach house it was naturally Parkhurst Design that we engaged for our project.  We enjoyed working with Kim and our finished cost effective result is amazing considering the parameters we had to work with.  We would like to work with her again one and have no hesitation in recommending Parkhurst Design as an interior designer for commercial, marine and private work"
