Melbourne Interior Designers




Home Construction





What’s on your bucket list that you would love to tick off first? and why?

I think right now, with Melbourne’s regulations, I would simply say a holiday with my family. Singapore would be amazing.


If you could travel back to when you finished high school, what advice would you give the younger you?

 I understand that often when you are finishing high school, young people are often stuck with what to do.  From early on I knew I wanted to do design; I just wasn't sure how to go about it.  My advice is to follow your heart and you will find your direction.


If you wrote a book, what would the title be? and why?

Finding your truth! If you find your dream job, you never work again.

Sarah is the complete professional! Excellent customer service, forthright straight to the point, great suggestions/ideas pulling from her wide experience, totally understood my particular needs. Continuously updated me with the progress and was very informative during the whole process. Very Happy with the result and without a doubt will be using her again!


From the start Sarah listened to the type of style we wanted to create. She pushed our thinking and provided us with options that we would have never thought of. It opened our minds to what can be achieved and the amazing outcomes that you can get when you work with a designer. Sarah managed the work for us which also took away the stress of managing a number of trades people when trying to balance work and family. Throughout the renovation we were kept up to date around timelines and budget so we always knew where we were at. Thank you again Sarah for our beautifully renovated home that we just love.


Sarah has been excellent to work with. She has excellent product knowledge and a creative flair that really opened our minds to the possibilities. Sarah was accommodating, encouraging and inspiring. She was very patient with us as we explored our options and took our time to make the right decisions. our home has been transformed into a beautiful balance between liveable practicality and clean contemporary colours, layout and design We are delighted with the outcome and highly recommend Sarah and Provoke Design
