"Sally provided design and planning for the interiors of my extention. Her insight, ideas and collaboration have proven to be invaluable to the project. Sally is a delight to work with. She is responsive to communication and I have found her reliable and trustworthy. I initially sort her services for our bathroom, that turned out beautiful, so I extended her scope of work to include the living areas. I am very pleased with the results so far. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone considering a renovation project." - Kym Patterson


"My very small bathroom was extended to accommodate our young family of five. Sally designed the layout of our new bathroom perfectly to suit our needs, coordinated with trades, sourced great products and implemented the gorgeous aesthetics. She made sure she listened to what we wanted, but was also great with her suggestions and ideas. Always friendly, easy to communicate with and nothing seemed liked too much trouble. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. There is a real wow factor when entering our bathroom now, that we could not have achieved without Sally. We will definitely be using Substance Within for further projects in our home." - Eltham Family


"My husband and I engaged Substance Within when we began our home renovation in 2018. Sally has assisted us with designing our new kitchen, bedrooms, powder room, indoor and outdoor living spaces. It has been fantastic having someone to guide us through the process, and help us realise the vision we had. Our home has undergone a major transformation and is now quite contemporary and very functional. We were really impressed by Sally’s concepts which contribution to quite a lot of the structural changes we have made. We had a number of custom furniture pieces designed which are unique, stand out pieces! We are continuing to work with Substance Within as we finish the build process and continue to add decorative elements to the house. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Substance Within no matter the size of your project, Sally is very invested in her work!" - Research Family
