Abide Interiors Collaborated Designers

Our original goal was to source and deliver beautiful coastal designs at a great price; however our business model has now blossomed to incorporate wholesale, trade, and retail designs – still beautiful designs and always at great prices.

We pride ourselves on the quality, design, and decoration of private residences, hospitality, hotels, and development projects. Our highly talented design team travels the world, constantly on the lookout for beautiful and unique products that will add personality and value to your space.

Abide Interiors bring together the effortless style of the beautiful Sunshine Coast with our classic Coastal and Hamptons interiors, delivering stunning interior designs to thrill even the most discerning homeowners.

While we feel very honoured to work on large projects, we also work in collaboration with designers right across Australia, creating innovative, stylish interiors. Our strong retail brand allows us to work in partnership with local interior designers to provide rich and diverse offerings of impressive pieces of furniture, accessories, artworks, and lighting.

As coast-loving people ourselves, Abide Interiors is all about Hamptons Style and Coastal Style Interiors. We believe your home is your sanctuary, a safe place away from the busyness of everyday life. In addition to other classic influences, our main inspiration for the spaces we design comes from our love of the Sunshine Coast and its beautiful shoreline.

Abide Interiors deliver interiors with a classy, elegant aesthetic, and are proud to have featured in a number of home décor magazines. Why not let Abide Interiors create a simple, yet beautiful and unique home for you?

Biographical Info

We believe that a beautiful home should speak not only for your taste, but for who you are and what you have achieved in life. For our clients, this means a professional process & flawless execution matter almost as much as inspired design, so all three of these goals define our practice.


Here’s what that means for our clients:

Satisfaction by Design

Refined by decades of experience, Satisfaction by Design is CCI’s system for managing not just your project, but our working relationship with you. With transparency, clear milestones, accountability and candour, our process is designed to earn the trust and confidence it takes to do truly great work.

Seamless Execution

Engaging CCI means engaging a design team who are committed to bringing your vision to life. Personally guided by Michelle from concept (‘Brief creation’) all the way to completion (’Reveal’), this is how we can ensure that your space will be a source of pride for years to come.

A Focus on You

Our work has ranged from residential homes and urban apartments to holiday properties and commercial projects, at almost every scale. In fact, Colour Confidence Interiors projects have only ever had one thing in common: discerning clients who are successful people in their own right and expect as much from us as they have always expected from themselves.




Find pictures and samples of what you like, no matter how outrageous! Include fabric samples, magazine pictures, paint colours or any other material that inspires you. Collect and save these in one file so it’s always handy.

  1. MEET

Our first appointment is most important, as this allows us to tour your home, understand your priorities and offer initial suggestions. We’ll explain the process of working together and explain exactly how we can help you achieve your design goals. It’s here that we establish the ‘brief’ which will guide us along the way. 


This is critical, as the amount you wish to spend will determine how big the project becomes. Budget is determined by how much renovation work is required and how much furniture and accessories are needed. If structural works are also required, then this must be considered in the budget before any décor selections. 


You can choose whether you want to have us as ‘design consultants’ only, where we provide colour suggestions, material options and offer a list of places to shop. This is for those who like to ‘do it themselves’.

Or, you can choose to have us do everything for you, with your guidance of course. Alternatively, settle on a mix of the two: let us take care of a select number of projects and you handle the rest. The choice is yours.


When we know what has to be done, it’s time for you to commit the time and money to finish your dream space. Remember, projects will take the time they require. We will do our best to speed up the process but it will all happen in fair time.

For example, it generally takes 8 – 10 weeks for furniture, drapes and materials to be installed. Custom cabinetry and fixtures can take up to 12 weeks. Accessorising will take approximately 4 weeks.
