Reviews & Media

I am thankful and humbled by those who champion my little business and whose words I have featured further below. I look forward to continuing to be a part of your homes and businesses and helping you bring your design dreams to life in spaces with soul.

For a brief look into the work that I do daily head over to Instagram & see ‘Ladydarwindesign’ and the hashtag #darwininteriordesign



Lady Darwin Design has been a contributor to Darwinlife Magazine since 2009 providing monthly advice and features for all things Design, Art and fashion. The below articles are just a fraction of the content provided over the years.

“There are a lot of Territory artists creating work that are then printed onto fabrics and I think there is a real move to buy pieces that add to your life and last rather than mass produced crap.”
As a proud Territorian Haley was engaged by the Darwin Turf Club to promote the Darwin Cup Carnival and all things Northern Territory style. A great promotion of Lady Darwin Design which provided numerous contacts in the NT and abroad as well as lots of valuable networking and business exposure throughout the year.
The award winning Stonehouse Wine bar located in the historic stone cottages on Cavenagh street Darwin City. Interior Design by Lady Darwin, a favourite job… for obvious reasons.
When Marie Clair Maison magazine came to the NT all the way from Italy to do a feature with Tourism NT they requested and interviewed Haley as the sole Designer and local Creative Industry representative to discuss what inspires design in the NT, The local art scene, Historical Darwin Architecture and tropical design as well as how the city has changed over the years from the ‘Asian Gateway’ into a thriving city full of it’s own culture and charms


I highly recommend Lady Darwin Design and have used her services now for multiple projects. Haley’s positive can do demeanour and style was obvious to me the moment I met her and I am glad that our paths continue to cross. * Various Commercial Projects Lady Darwin Design instagram

A true professional delivering a very stylish renovation on time and budget for a perhaps difficult old fashioned client, or so she tells me. Many thanks to you lovey for encouraging me to stick with it. * Residential Home renovation

I was having trouble choosing products and loathed the idea of finding the furniture and lighting that I wanted.
