Student Spotlight

Gina Androutsos - Interior Decoration Essentials 101

Course studied at Uocmas Design School?

Interior Decoration Essentials 101, on campus.

Why did you choose the Uocmas Design School?

I love everything about Uocmas; great reputation, property and interior styling to perfection and not to mention great furniture pieces which are so unique. The one day a week let me focus on the course only and it was manageable with having small children as well.

What did you get out of the course?

The course was fantastic it helped me gain so much knowledge and confidence on how to approach clients, how to create a portfolio and gain a much more creative imagination. Also meeting great lecturers with so much knowledge and experience in design was fantastic.

Tell us a little about you.

My background is hairdressing which is why I love being creative. I'm now a mum of two kiddies and interior styling has always been something I'm extremely passionate about and love designing beautiful spaces in homes. We run a successful building company (Coastline Building Co) and I have always been involved in renovating homes.

What inspires you?

Kelly Wearstler and Greg Natale are both amazing designers with a unique vision in creating a sophisticated, luxe vibe.

How would you describe your personal style?

Modern minimalist with a bit of an eclectic twist. I'm quite versatile with my style, I love colour and texture which always makes a room feel completely grand and sophisticated.

Your latest project?

- Complete makeovers for a little girl and boys room.
- 1960's residential renovation in Canterbury

What's next?

Two complete new project builds on the Northern Beaches. One has amazing views and will be featured on my blog as well as my website that will be launching soon.
