What our clients say

Helen, deciding to work with you has been one of the best decisions we have made. The spaces that we have created in our family home are stylish, yet practical and comfortable. From the outset your suggestions have been spot on and have had a direct effect on our home’s liveability. As you gently guided us through critical design aspects with care and professionalism you made the decision making so much easier; the fact that we were able to incorporate sentimental furniture pieces in our design is a true testament to the depth of your experience – for this we will always be grateful. Thank you Helen for keeping our needs as a young family at the centre of your concepts and for always honouring our personal style.

Anna and Shane - Broadmeadow

Helen and her team of professionals made our complete bathroom renovation a complete success. From the initial planning consultations with Helen, where she listened to our needs then and provided great choices and ideas, through to her organisation of her fantastic team of tradesmen, the process worked smoothly and with little stress. Helen presented us with clear ideas of her vision for the bathroom, but was also able to take on board our ideas, the combination giving us the final fantastic product. Her tradesmen deserve special credit; they are all excellent, and work well together under Helen’s direction, minimising delays and problems. Helen’s drive kept the process on track. We can fully recommend Helen and Swish Concepts for any renovations and design changes you need around your home.

Laurie and Jill - New Lambton Heights

After 10 years in our house, we needed to refinish the floors and repaint inside and out. This was a daunting task for us as we both work full time so we hired Helen to project manage these jobs for us .

Helen selected a colour palette based on our requirements, organised the quotes from the tradesmen and project managed the completion of works while we were overseas. We arrived home to completed paintwork and a custom colour on the floors, which exceeded our expectations. Helen was great to work with and we could not have achieved the outcome without her assistance.
