Geraldine McOrmish’s interior design career began in 2002, when she set up her own firm, Different by Design. In 2007 she expanded her service offering my joining Susan Dodd Interior Design and her retail outlet, A Zest for Living. Build form is the focus of Geraldine’s business, and she has extensive experience in collaborating with clients, their architects and builders in progressing an initial concept, taking it through the planning, working drawings and, finally, completion phases. She works with clients in selecting every aspect, including: the layout of rooms, external materials, positioning of windows and doors, the electrical layout and the myriad of internal selections — tiles, taps, benchtops, appliances and flooring — and the colour palette that brings the whole project together. Her affiliation with A Zest for Living means a full turnkey service, which to date has been provided on projects ranging from $250,000 to $2,500,000. She holds a Bachelor of Arts and Diploma in Interior Design and Decoration (TAFE SA) and, in 2012, picked up a 2012 Master Builders Association Award for medium density housing in Tynte Street North Adelaide.
