Christine Rogers has been an interior decorator and designer for 40 years — in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia. She established Christine Rogers Interiors in 1995. In 2012, the Harris Residence, for which she did the interiors, took out Home of the Year in the 2011 awards, the result of a four-year collaboration with the architect, builder and client. Her philosophy is to listen to clients and produce a design that suits their tastes, rather than imposing her ideas too strongly. She has built a reputation on providing a comprehensive interior design and decorating service, from planning right through to placing the last accessory. Her aim at the end of the job is to have a client who really enjoys their new environment and is proud of it. She works mainly on residential projects, but has also undertaken small office renovations, cafes, bed & breakfast accommodation and boutique hotels and motels. Projects range in value from $500 to $300,000.
