Hi! I’m Zoe. AKA, The DIY Decorator. Wife to Aaron. Mum to Jack and Harper. And a qualified Interior Decorator working from home in Perth, Western Australia.
Since completing my Diploma of Interior Decorating over 16 years ago, I have worked as an Interior Decorator, Visual Merchandiser, Real Estate Stylist, Product Stylist, Interior Blogger and Content Creator. I enjoy every aspect of the decorating industry and love sharing with via my social media pages The DIY Decorator.
I started The DIY Decorator in 2015 when my baby son was becoming more independent and I had some spare time to myself again. Since starting what was a fun page to share my love of affordable decorating with others, I have gone on to explore everything from working with clients to create their dream home, to working with small business and large retailer with styling and promotion, sharing shopping finds, creating and sharing inspirational interior mood boards, creating and sharing DIY projects, blogging and more. I love the interaction involved when using social media and feel that it’s somewhere which I can further explore my love of home decorating and share it with other like minded interior lovers.
Some people believe that home decorating is expensive and there’s no way they could afford to hire someone to help. Or that they don’t know where to start and feel overwhelmed by the whole process. I believe that anybody can decorate their home on any budget. Sometimes all that is needed is a little guidance from someone like myself. My 16 years experience working in the decorating and retail industry, along with my keen eye for bargains can help my clients achieve the look they want on the budget they have to work with.
Decorating is fun! It shouldn’t be stressful. You should be able to make your house a home and love where you live. Decorating makes me so very happy and I hope that The DIY Decorator can spread that happiness whilst inspiring others along the way.
