Evette Annandale

Evette Annandale’s love of design was shaped and matured within the walls of the Inscape Education Group where she obtained a bachelor of design. Here, she first learned about insatiable curiosity and what design thinking means in all aspects of life.

Her career saw her become a well rounded interior designer, gaining experience in residential, hospitality, commercial and retail design.

The philosophy of being a creative problem solver enabled her to first become an established freelancer and eventually ensured that Annandale Design could take flight.

Evette's company specialises in conceptual, retail and office design, taking pride in high level technical details merging effortlessly with art and design. She is always inspired to create spaces of high quality that are authentic and loyal to each client and brief.

Evette is also a registered professional interior designer and professional architectural draughtsperson with her local authorities (IID & SACAP).

Sophie Seeger

Sophie Seeger runs Seeger By Design, a creative company for interior design, decorating, property styling, colour consulting and art sourcing.

Sophie was immersed in art and design from a very young age, having “caught the bug” from her grandmother, a sculptor, and both art-loving parents.

She studied history of art, colour and design, interior design and journalism. Her career to date has successfully married her passion for art, design and writing.

While running a contemporary art and design gallery, Sophie developed a commission base for her paintings and also discovered her joy for commercial design development, identifying sustainable opportunities and incomes for artists and designers.

This led to two Indigenous rug and textile ranges with licensed deals for clients including DFAT, Qantas and public libraries. Sophie has a licensing deal for her own abstract art and has works in private collections throughout Australia, in South Africa, the US, UK, Denmark and Singapore.

Sophie has worked as an art and design mentor and a guest curator, and she continues to work on residential and boutique retail interior design projects.

She is a weekly contributor for Houzz and a member of the DIA.
