"Crystal was a breath of fresh air. I needed some expert help to transform the old and stuffy exterior of my house to something warm and contemporary and found it all overwhelming. Crystal came and worked with me in such a pleasant and professional way and helped guide me though the colour choices and “look” I wanted to achieve. Her suggestions were not only practical but beautiful. I would highly recommend Crystal for any colour and styling help. She was well priced and very responsive"

"What a delight to work with such a creative and professional designer. Crystal listened to our brief and came with a range of ideas and suggestions for our kitchen renovation. We are the worst type of client in that we were not sure of what we wanted however Crystal listened and interpreted our very vague idea perfectly. No request was ever dismissed as too hard or ignored and she came with design and appliance suggestions we had never considered. The budget was spot on and she helped deliver a final kitchen renovation that we love."
- John & Narelle, Bardwell Valley
"We engaged Crystal for her interior design services. When we started working with Crystal the brief was to design a space for our new training academy, breakout space and reception area. What made us award the work to Crystal was her ability to understand our brand and objectives but more importantly identify what we really needed. What she has delivered is a space that is stylish, inspiring, fun and more importantly functional. We have been so impressed with her concepts we are about to embark on refreshing our other work spaces. I recommend Crystal for her innovative thinking, honesty and ability to create unique spaces."
- Cheyne, Right2Drive Beverly Hills
"Crystal kindly volunteered her time and expertise to help out The Trading Circle with some urgent site plans we needed for council. Crystal was friendly and efficient and drew up the plans quickly and professionally. Her work is meticulous and she was very easy to work with. We are very thankful for her help!" - Bindi, The Trading Circle Summer Hill
"We recently employed the services of Crystal Amesbury for the renovation of our unit at Dolls Point in Sydney. Crystal understood our vision immediately and offered excellent advice and design solutions to help us achieve what we wanted! Down to earth and very approachable, I would be very happy to recommend Crystal to anyone undertaking a design project of any kind. Thanks again Crystal. We can’t wait to see the finished product and have you over for a drink to celebrate!" - Karla & Karl, Dolls Point
"Overwhelmed by the thought of re-decorating my living room, I looked to the world of e-decorating and came across the lovely Crystal Amesbury. I was drawn to Crystal’s work for her considered design, non cookie-cutter creations and ability to decorate for the person and their lifestyle. The brief process was incredibly detailed which saw her initial proposal delivered beautifully and accurately. Crystal goes above and beyond to consider all facets of the design from lighting, flooring, decor accents and colour/textural combinations.
She was also aware that I didn’t want a replication of a ”Block” home or too many “trend pieces” along with something that would hold longevity. I was thrilled with her choices (all within budget) and adopted them all! Crystal’s passion for design is evident through her work and I appreciated her high attention to detail and responsiveness throughout the project.
I would highly recommend Crystal for your next decorating project,
she’s an absolute delight to work with!" - Angela, Melbourne
"McDonald Industries the leading re-developer of strata title units in Sydney approached Crystal Amesbury to give a whole new fresh approach to their refurbishment model. We were in the market for a contemporary vision and in the process of refurbishing a boutique block of 12 one and two bedroom apartments in Bondi Junction. Working within a strict budget, time frame and with our multiple existing suppliers Crystal was not only able to put together a comprehensive schedule comprising of colours, fixtures and finishes, but capture both the demographic we were marketing to and character that this iconic location embodies.The feedback on the finish of these apartments and the results of the first weeks sales campaign has been nothing short of excellent, showcasing Crystal’s ability to work within budget whilst keeping in mind the future occupant and their lifestyle requirements in such a wonderful location" - McDonald Industries Pty Limited, Sydney
"Crystal has been the designer for my new business logo for Leap Into. She totally understood my brief and created a very organic, colourful and intuitive design that really stands out on my website, documents etc. She worked with me the whole way, sending me outlines and details as she went a long. I would love to do some work with Crystal in the future and would highly recommend her for this type of work" - Pippa, Callala Beach

Hello! I'm Crystal and I'm an Interior Designer from Inner West Sydney.
Besides loving interior design (in particular selecting fixtures and finishes to provide the perfect foundations for your space!) I'm also a raging carnivore, an ambivert, cushion hoarder, a dog adorer, binge cooking show watcher, Seinfeld enthusiast, graphic and packaging design lover, wannabe foodie, Frida Kahlo worshipper, Kelly Wearstler addict, interior design, fashion, photography and architecture book collector!
I get giddy over tile selections, excitable when I discover new architectural hardware, am addicted to details and am a fireball of passion when it comes to concept creation - if it's this kind of energy you're looking for on your next project we should chat!
P.S. My social media poison is both Instagram and Pinterest - you can see what I'm currently up to (nothing suss!) by searching 'Crystal Amesbury'
