Interior Designer Assistant - Bettina Carrett

Bettina comes from an Education and IT background and is excited to transfer these skills and experiences across to the Design Industry. 

Bettina's first building experience was the full renovation of an old Queenslander on a tight budget where most of it was handled personally (lifting, extending and enclosing). With no experience at all, Bettina particularly enjoyed the problem solving of space planning, the kitchen design and bathroom designs. As the owner builder, she was grateful for all the learning experiences throughout the renovation. This prompted thoughts of how she could do it better next time.


Next time, Bettina decided to embark on a new build and that is how she met Dawn!! Bettina feels like she has a greater understanding of the end to end building processes from her personal experiences and as a happy client of Dawn's realised how much she particularly enjoyed the interior selection process and of course living in the end result! 

Bettina has realised her passion and is now studying Interior design and is looking forward to learning and sharing her knowledge and excitement for the Industry with clients in the near future.
