BDes (Interior Architecture) NZCD (Arch.)


“I’d gladly recommend Alexandra to anyone looking for an Interior Designer who is well organised, gets the brief and makes things happen. We were renovating a house in another city, no easy task, and Alexandra was a standout member of the team in regards her professionalism and ability to understand what we were trying to achieve.”

Mark Speer

"Clyne + Wright Construction have now worked alongside Alex on several projects and have also recommended her services to our own clients. What impresses me is there is no cut and paste with her interior design work, each project is specifically tailored to the client's personalities and requirements. Alex has the unique ability to turn a house into a home."

David Wright - Director Clyne + Wright Construction

"We have used the design skills of Alex Blair from Alexandra Blair Interior Design Ltd twice.

The first time was twelve years ago for a total holiday house remodel in Queenstown. Twelve years on it is still a house we love and enjoy with our family. It still accommodates our changing extended family needs beautifully – thanks to Alex.

The second time was over the last few years for a new house build on an existing site in Merivale. This involved liaison with an out of town Architect and suppliers. She was very involved with us as the finishing project manager. Both projects were about eighteen months, and during each time, Alex was constantly available with enthusiasm, problem solving skills for us and our trades.

Alex has an excellent eye for design, attention to detail, endless patience and this was invaluable for these projects. Alex always listens to her clients needs. It has been a very successful partnership and we would highly recommend her for your projects."

Lindsay and Chris O'Donnell

"We have worked with Alex for over 5 years now starting in 2013. We continue to consult whenever another project comes up (large or small) as we value her opinions, sensitivity, listening skills and professionalism so much.

It started with major input into our EQ rebuild (technically 'repair' but red-stickered & reduced to wooden frame so no interiors and floors all ripped out too). Alex was invaluable in listening to our vision, understanding what would work best with that, giving us options and being phenomenally sensitive in managing differing opinions between my husband and I. She was able to provide a clarity of vision and concordance, with attention to details we hadn't considered and her professional co-ordination with others involved (builders, architects, electricians etc) enhanced the results for all.
Investing in an interior designer - especially one as talented, professional, intuitive and sensitive as Alex - is utterly and completely worth while."

Tonya Sadler

"Alex has been our interior decorator for many years. She has been involved with four properties we have.
Alex has the approach of a true professional yet has the warmth of a friend. She listens and considers the needs of the client rather than push her styling on them.
Her designs, choice of fabrics and styling is timeless.
My husband has also used her commercially as well.
If you are looking for an interior designer go no further than Alex. You won't be disappointed."

Cilla Glasson

"I have worked with Alex several times over the last 15 years both as a supplier on large hospitality projects and with her residential clients. I have always found Alex totally professional with excellent design skills and attention to detail with the added bonus of a delightful personality."

Debbie Cavit - Managing Director Cavit & Co.

"We have worked with Alex in a do up and then a re build after the earthquake, and found her brilliant. We didn't have an open ended budget and Alex worked with that making sure money was spent with the biggest impact. Alex is a fantastic communicator and had admirable patience working with myself and my husband to get the compromise we are both really happy with. She definitely decreased the stress of building a house by having designs/decisions organised before dead lines. I love my home, the colours, the practicability of the materials used, furniture set up and flow. Thank you Alex I would recommend you to anyone and everyone."

Felicity Wallis

"It was a pleasure to work with Alex on the interior for our renovation. She guided and formalised our ideas, listening to what we wanted while adding her own significant expertise and flair. The end result was a coherent plan which made our renovation go smoothly, and resulted in an interior which reflected our personality and style of living."

Sarah and Ben Davidson

"Thank you for all the work you've done and advice you've given and the expertise you've brought to the project. I love the décor and furniture, and the way it all fits together. The end result is a wonderful mix of styles and ideas which represents us well. Once again thanks. You should feel proud!"

Sheryl Chisholm

"Alex, we just wanted to say how grateful we are for all your interior design work. It has been most helpful and we are very pleased with the results. We really feel that you understood what we were trying to do and would highly recommend you to any friends or colleagues."

Scott Babington & Val Fletcher

"Alex was great to work with and she left no stone unturned in helping us with our interior design and fit out. Alex has a great eye and a good sense of what works in a house. For our renovation she was able to incorporate practical design elements that are still visually appealing and ‘usable’ many years on."

Andrew Ward

"We have been privileged to have worked with Alex over the past 15 years on a new build and refurbishment. Alex has always been an absolute delight to deal with. She is very receptive to the clients needs and perspective whilst taking that to another level that only a person with true talent and an eye for detail can, whilst making the client feel comfortable that it fits with their personality."
