Merle Theunissen has been working as an Interior and architectural designer, teaching and lecturing for 29 years.

“I love the energy and fast moving trends of interior design, construction and multiple new products on the market. Pinterest and various internet design sites keep everyone excited. Renders and 3D in design make a lot of my work virtual and clients (especially my overseas clients) know exactly what the outcome will be. I would like to be known as the “wish list” achiever. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see my clients happy and proud that the goals we set out together have been met and even exceeded!”


Interior design is always a team effort, all players should have the same goal. Everyone is important, from the architect, contractors, suppliers to the labourers. The trick is to keep the vision clear even if the ideas are new and weird to them!

These projects were a big collaboration between the clients, Elda an Johan Müller, me and the architect and the builder. We are all very pleased with both end results. Big high fives to the contractors team, especially the bespoke items, kitchen, woodwork and furniture.
