"Shirley Gavin has worked with me on these homes by preparing for sale; selecting decore and furniture; and, most recently, in design, finish and colour advice for a new home. The investment in her services has been returned many times over by achieving excellent sale prices and in avoiding costly mistakes.

Most importantly, Shirley spent time getting to know my family and working with the pieces that were special to us, to fit them into the new homes. She saved me many hours of searching for furniture, fabrics and accessories and sourced quality items at very good prices. I also value her commitment to supporting local businesses.

I wouldn't re-locate or re-decorate without the advice of Nepean Inner Designs."

"On behalf of Rodney and all the members of Penrith District Netball Association, I would like to thank you very much for your assistant and advice in the creation of our meeting rooms.

We are absolutely delighted with the result and your help in the placement of our honour boards, photos, plaques and promotional items was invaluable.

Shirley, once again - thank you very much - your input has made a huge difference to our rooms."

Joy Gillett, Secretary - Penrith Districts Netballs Association
"Even though I am a graphic designer by trade I am fully aware that choosing colours for your home is an art in itself. After moving my business out of home, we had two rooms that needed to be decorated. I got Shirley in to consult on colours and get her to make me custom curtains - which I love! As it was an open plan space the colours that Shirley chose were not what I would have thought of, but once we implimented them, it pulled the entire room together. Shirley had fabrics for me to choose from that I had not seen anywhere else and her installation team were very professional.

I would highly recommend Shirley to anyone who is looking at improving the appearance of their home. Shirley is so approachable and is able to help you create a look that is based your own style - not hers. I'll definitely use Shirley's services again."

Debbie O'Connor - White River Design
