Hi Bernadette. Just sitting in the apartment with a lovely glass of red after dinner at Lucy Liu’s. I’m so impressed with the fit out, selection, attention to detail, and overall feel of the apartment. Thanks so much for your skill and expertise, there is no way we could have achieved so much in such a tight time frame without your invaluable assistance. ps Thanks for the lovely welcome gifts – the lovely book and glasses are perfect for the apartment!

We hired Ferrari Interiors to decorate our lounge, dining, entrance and master bedroom. Bernadette has a great eye for detail, style and function. She soon works out your individual style and works to that while providing professional insight and honest opinions. In addition she assisted us with curtains, wall and floor colours and recommended good quality contractors. We would never have been able to come up with the right furniture selection, placement, curtains, fabric selection and colour pallet without her expert help. All timelines were met and she coordinated all contractors and deliveries and certainly makes life easier. Bernadette goes the extra mile for her clients and we are very happy with the result.

After years of promising my wife we would re-decorate and modernise our décor, I finally succumbed.
Fortuitously I came across Ferrari Interiors and Bernadette. From our initial meeting we were impressed with Bernadette’s understating of what we wanted and her passion for her work.
From meeting with us to meeting with manufacturers, importers and our own builder her fastidious attention to detail was liberating… we really didn’t have to sweat the small stuff. After months of planning, abstract work and design the vision materialised when our new home was furnished with military precision. The final result was perfect, even better than we had imagined.
We were, and remain so very happy with Bernadette’s services and would be happy to recommend her to anyone considering her services.

We engaged Bernadette Ferrari to design and furnish our new Melbourne apartment. From our first meeting to our last furniture delivery, Bernadette orchestrated and oversaw a process that delivered us an amazing outcome. From accompanied visits to suppliers, to try before you buy sessions with furniture and bed manufacturers, to paper furniture templates to finalise final layouts, nothing was too much trouble. We love our ‘home’ and could not have imagined such a result without Bernadette at Ferrari Interiors. We could not recommend her more highly.
Bernadette helped us with the renovation and interior decoration of our 3 bedroomed apartment in Fitzroy. The apartment has 2 levels on the 2nd floor of the old MacRobertson Chocolate Factory. We were both impressed with the way Bernadette organised this challenging project. She listened carefully to our wishes & resolved difficulties in problematic areas especially the kitchen space. We were impressed by her attention to detail and are very happy with the final result. We have no hesitation in recommending her.
Ferrari Interiors is an exceptional company to work with!
Bernadette provides an extremely professional and friendly service. Her taste is impeccable and she listens to the needs of her clients. Bernadette has been extremely patient with my timeline and my indecisive nature. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and I have learnt a lot about interior design and maximising space.
I would highly recommend Ferrari Interiors.
Bernadette provided personalised interior design services for us recently. We purchased a beach house with a very short settlement and thought we would have no furniture in time for our summer guests. However with Bernadette’s assistance we chose and took delivery of unique, colourful and functional lounge, dining and outdoor pieces, together with some great accessories, in no time.
I used Ferrari Interiors to furnish my new home. Bernadette was absolutely fantastic to work with – she has a great sense of humour and very responsive to my questions. I’m extremely happy with the home she has helped me create.
We approached Bernadette at Ferrari Interiors to help us decide on a style and colour palate for our townhouse development. We have no experience with building or styling a home and didn’t know where to start. From the moment we met Bernadette she made us feel comfortable and immediately understood our needs. At every meeting she was approachable, helpful and most importantly, extremely knowledgeable. Bernadette provided us with exactly what we needed: insights into products and materials, great suggestions on colours, tiles, floors, appliances, pricing and everything else! Most importantly she has helped us create a home we will love living in. We can’t wait to show Bernadette the finished product and ask her for help in choosing furnishings.

Last year, we became ‘empty-nesters’ and ‘downsized’ from our large family home into a newly purchased city fringe apartment. Having moved a number of times around various cities in Australia as our family grew up, we had progressively acquired an assortment of furnishing styles. Buying our apartment represented a great opportunity to refurbish with a deliberate theme with the help of an interior designer.
It would be a first time involvement with designers and was going to be a reasonably big assignment – totally redecorate and furnish our 2 storey apartment before we were due to move in. So choice of designers was very important to us. We searched via the internet and sought initial briefings from a couple of local designers.
We chose to proceed with Bernadette Ferrari who was enthusiastic right from the start – she made suggestions straight away that resonated with us, and took lots of photos from which she developed a range of concept themes. She guided us through selection of the final over-arching concept, choice of colours palettes, selection of furniture, lighting and decor, and furniture placement. Bernadette also looked after sourcing all the items including custom made pieces, and even taking delivery and setting out the furnishings ready for us to just move straight in.
As part of our project we also undertook renovation of bathrooms and kitchen, as well as new flooring and window furnishings. Bernadette was able to provide contacts for undertaking all of this additional work. All the contractors Bernadette recommended proved reliable, experienced tradesmen delivering quality work. Bernadette helped to ensure good co-ordination of the whole project.
We readily recommend Ferrari Interiors to anyone looking for help and direction in what seemed to us at first a bewildering array of redecorating and refurbishing options. We’d be only too pleased to talk with anyone thinking of engaging Ferrari Interiors.
