"Having recently undertaken an extensive renovation, the renovation was everything we had asked for, the house looked fabulous and was functional, but it just didn’t feel right. We wanted a home that the whole family would feel good in, a home that reflected the location and our personality. Megan came in and transformed the house into something amazing and we just absolutely love it. Megan’s layering has made the space feel inviting and more interesting, the layers, textures, fabrics, wallpaper, all the different elements bought into the house has made it amazing. Megan went the extra mile she even did the garden and the plants and that made such a difference. Dan and I love the open plan living and the indoor outdoor feel Megan created, we also like the fact that although we are a family of 5, there’s a place for everyone to go, to have their own space, but still be together. We love the feel of the house that relaxed beach feeling, it’s like being in a resort. It’s something we feel proud of because Megan added that extra element. Even the children have commented that it feels like a real home, they love everything about it."
"It's fantastic (and also a great relief!) when you find an interior designer who understands exactly what you want - and helps guide you in areas where you're not quite sure!
Such was our experience with Megan Penman Brown. From the first consultation, we felt Megan knew what sort of look we wanted to achieve in in our home. From there, she came up with wonderful options for us, including fabrics I would never have considered, only to find they were perfect.
Megan was happy to take on the design of our apartment at our pace, and understood if we felt a suggestion was beyond our budget. We were so happy with Megan's work, we have asked her to help us in our new apartment"
"We enlisted Megan to help us marry a few different styles in creating a relaxed yet stylish beach house. From the very beginning Megan understood our vision and guided us through the process with the patience of a saint.
Megans attention to detail with colours, measurements and fabric choices helped ensure everything worked perfectly in the desired space and resulted in our house being transformed into a beautiful home."
"Megan is an absolute magician. Her technical aptitude mixed with an unbelievably astute eye make her incredible to work with. She is able to work well to a brief, striving for perfection in everything she does - whilst being realistic and pragmatic at the same time. She takes the time to understand what you are aiming for and guides you in the direction. She knows what is worth spending money on, and where you can save, to ensure the end product is something you will absolutely love. Her style is both timeless and modern, chic but comfortable. I'd highly recommend her to anyone. You won't be disappointed."
"Megan helped tweak our architectural plans to create a more functional and spacious design. She helped us imagine the size and feel of our rooms. The Architect fully agreed that her tweaks improved the plans. Megan's ideas were just incredible and made me feel so much better about our dream home. Megan came to the rescue again to help me design the lay out of our kitchen. She is so professional, knowledgeable and wastes no time. I will be calling on her expertise to help with the interior design soon."
“I adore being in my home. Megan has created a beautiful space for our family to live in. As well as advising on design and finishes she sourced both hard and soft furnishings, perfectly mixing contemporary with antiques, and eclectic originals, whilst cleverly incorporating our existing pieces. Megan created many bespoke items such as ottomans, cushions, tables and my absolute favourite; a to die for oversized pendant light in the most amazing Sonia Rykiel fabric. She designed an outdoor living area that has transformed the way we live, adding an entirely new dimension to our home, her design extended to the smallest details right down to the trees, plants, pots and mood lighting.
Megan is truly talented. She is artistic, enthusiastic about colour, texture and pattern, and finding that “perfect piece”. She incorporated her passion and knowledge of the industry with my own sense of style and functional requirements. Megan worked at a pace and time frame that suited me which made it not just possible to achieve what I wanted within my very busy family life but made it an enjoyable and inspiring experience.
We recently hosted an important function in our home for a large number of people and the interior design was the hot topic of the night!”
“I was so fortunate to find Megan and have all my interior concerns taken off my hands. She instantly understood my objectives and budget and worked to achieving a fabulous outcome in a collaborative and stress free way.
Megan’s brief was to transform my tired, kid beaten lounge room into something that was more sophisticated yet still practical. Megan developed various schemes for our consideration and worked through every concept until we were all happy with the outcome. The colour palette and materials chosen by Megan are all beautiful and there would be no way we could have ever got any where near the final out come with out her. It is such a pleasure to come home to everyday, I only wish I could get her to do the rest of the house!
I have worked in the construction industry for over 20 years in the design field and Megan stands out from all the professionals I have dealt with over the years.”
“I recently engaged Megan of Penman Brown to decorate my newly purchased office in James Street New Farm. I am absolutely thrilled with the finished product. The office is stylish, inviting and most importantly reflects my personality. It also highlights what my business stands for and my corporate colours.
As I have clients and candidates visiting the office all day every day it not only makes a statement but it is warm and friendly from the minute they enter. I constantly receive comments on the office.
Megan was fabulous to work with. We had discussions in person and on the phone and via email. She listened and then would come through with ideas. She was on the money every time with what I wanted. I spend a lot of time in my office as do my team and it’s a delight to be surrounded by the interior Megan created.”
