How I Work

Torqing Design is a unique Residential Consultancy Service.

Its often you know what you want but don’t know how to achieve it or articulate it.  My background being predominately customer service ensures I have the ability to communicate clearly but most importantly listen to your needs.  My technical skill, having studied Building Design and Interior Design combined with years of work experience, give me the expertise to convert your inspiration into a reality.

On completion of all the planning I ensure all documented communication is accurate including plans, specification to ensure complete understanding by builder and trades.

I will personally work with you to ensure your dreams become your new home reality.


A complimentary Design Brief Meeting is where we begin. This is your opportunity to share with me your images of inspiration, your collection of pintrest boards. I will advise you both functionally and budget wise if the reality of your dreams can actually work. Its at this stage we can decide if my service fits your needs.

What our customers say

We approached Paula from Torqing Design to provide ideas and guidance for our home renovation. After a thorough discussion and analysis of our home, Paula presented us with a broad concept plan and design for our house. Following further feedback which lead to a final design that excited us. We presented the detailed concept drawings to our builder who had them drawn up into working drawings. As we moved on to select the house fixtures and finishing Paula selected quality suppliers for materials that reflected the design and style that we wanted. Paula valued our time and budget and this was obvious in her approach to our selections. Paula has a great people sense, always approachable and proactive. She is an excellent listener and was very clear in her communication both verbally and with her design presentations. We highly recommend Paula and cannot be happier with how our renovation has turned out, my entrance light is amazing and from the minute I enter our home I’m relaxed and happy.

Thank you for turning our much loved, beautiful home in to a very ‘stylish beautiful home’. Although I engaged your services at short notice with a degree of urgency, you managed to deliver and exceed our expectations in the short time frame with a positive, friendly and professional manner. Your sense of style is spot on, with nothing escaping your sharp eye for detail. We had an amazing result at Auction, which we believe was a direct result of how you made our home look and feel, your services were a great investment.
