LCI Melbourne’s colourful and creative, Petrina Turner recently appeared in Domain, contributing her expert advice on adding depth and interest to your interiors.

Petrina Turner is the curious, compassionate and multi-passionate creative behind Petrina Turner Design. In Domain’s article, she shares her insights on how to achieve beautiful, pattern-rich interiors no matter what your personal style is. 

“Think tone-on-tone, nature-inspired cushions, a herringbone-weave rug and even a rattan detail or door on a sideboard to add subtle pattern into your space.”

Petrina’s passion for functional design results in highly personalised spaces, integrating custom joinery, furniture and surface design that truly inspire and bring joy. She also delights in finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. Petrina encourages you to play with artwork, wallpaper and rugs, or even get started in a smaller space like the powder room to “build your courage” and explore your creativity.

Petrina explores the colourful and unknown, pushing the boundaries of interior design to create elevated and joyful spaces. Most importantly, Petrina’s approach is human centred, weaving the needs and stories of her clients together using colour, pattern, materiality and light.

Petrina Turner Design offers residential and commercial interior design, styling and product design, creating interiors and objects that consider not just how people move through space, but how they engage and interact with it and each other.

“This is a time to make our own rules because it’s more important than ever to really have our homes reflect what brings us joy. Whether you’re an adventurous type or more into the subtleties, now is the time to surround yourself with spaces and pattern that make you truly happy.”

Petrina believes our wellbeing is intimately tied to the spaces we immerse ourselves in. She brings her extensive knowledge, experience and a few tricks up her sleeve to create with exceptional detail, care, joy…and a little of the unexpected. Over her 25+ year career, many of her projects have been published, including her work on the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre featured on The Design Files and her collection of rugs appearing in The World of Interiors.

But OUR favourite thing about Petrina has to be her not-so-secret tap-dancing abilities!
