“Janice Kumar Ward from JKW.nz (is a) regular guest on my Saturday radio show. Janice was instantly warm and friendly and is highly respected. She works along the lines of not being slave to following trends. If you love something, then have it.
Janice is also a busy working mum to two kids, so I knew that she’d ‘get’ me when we talked about family life. I had an hour with her for the first consult and the things she came up with blew me away. She’s also an interior architect, and suggested the addition of a clever doorway in our super long passage way that I’d never considered. It would cleverly hide a row of cool coat hooks for the aforementioned stuff to hang out of the way. We’d been planning to cram a much needed beer fridge into our already over crowded laundry. She told us to remove some excess drawers in the kitchen island and pop it there. Genius.
We covered lighting and window dressing, changing of rooms, wallpaper, wardrobe design, re appropriation of lounge furniture, among other things.
I came away buzzing. And confident that that one-hour of expertise was worth more to me than any hour I could get in an interiors shop or spooling through pinterest on my own.”
