I’m a true Territory girl and love getting outdoors to enjoy this beautiful place we live. Darwin has so much to offer and I enjoy helping businesses establish a presence here. I’m also an avid traveller and love to immerse in foreign culture and seek inspiration from the incredible world around us.
Ever since I can remember I have been doing something creative with my time and to this day I love the world of design and its limitless boundaries.
Upon graduating from Charles Darwin University, with a Bachelor of Design, I was awarded with an internship at MODE Design, which went to the most outstanding student, and from there my love affair with design flourished.
Between my travels, I’ve spent almost six years working for MODE Design, an international multi-disciplinary design practice, where I have gained a broad range of experience in a wide variety of sectors, including residential, commercial, workplace, education, retail, hospitality and healthcare. As head of the interior design sector for the Northern Territory, I successfully delivered beautiful and functional interiors, to happy clients, many of which have gone onto win awards.
Ready for new challenges, I turned my dream into a reality and Schapel Interiors was born in 2016. I am incredibly lucky to have such a supportive husband and network, understanding my need to take the leap and follow my passion. I am so excited for this new chapter in my career and its endless opportunities.
I offer flexible interior design services and tailor to your unique needs, offering everything in the spectrum of Interior Design, from concept to completion. I pride myself on delivering fresh, creative and inspiring design solutions to give you the best environments possible for your everyday life. I am passionate about providing excellent client service and committed to listening and working closely with you to meet your goals and carry out the design process with personal but professional execution.
