Hello. This is me.
Technically Briana Forster, far more comfortable as Bri. I'm full of life, up for a laugh + down to earth. What you see is what you get + I'm extremely proud of this characteristic. I grew up with a family deeply entrenched in the building game. My love of interiors, colour + the creative was founded at a young age as I watched my parents renovate + build homes in Brisbane + Noosa Heads.
A little back story:
With over a decade at the helm of Watermelon Red; a busy retail space, online shop + design studio (all whilst renovating two houses, running a farm, having a baby, manufacturing a clothing range, internationally sourcing homewares + trying to be everything to everyone) I was done. I was run ragged, sleeping sporadically, on a constant 24/7 go go go! It was impossible for me to 'switch off' + life had become focussed on the administrative day to day of running a business whilst it appeared the creativity + colour of the industry I loved was slowly seeping away.
So I decided to simplify.
In 2019, after the sale of the retail space + online store, I decided to commit to creating an Interiors Studio. I rebranded my Styling services and launched Briana Forster Design.
My life is now filled with the things I love most: Family, Design + Travel. I have the flexibility to be a mum + also a warrior worker. I'm not ashamed to say I love to work. I get a kick out of seeing my projects come to life + at the same time I love being able to contribute to my family.
The past 15 years have seen me working extensively from concept to completion on mid to high end homes across the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Melbourne + Sydney creating beautiful, liveable spaces, filling them with furniture + treasures to enjoy for years to come.
As a Freelance Stylist I get to fill my days revelling in Australian design, creativity + colour, bringing this all together for my clients. How good is that?!?!? I love to create spaces that are refreshing + colourful, evocative + sensory, relaxed + liveable.
I get such a kick out of turning my clients houses into homes; spaces that have all the 'feels' + set the scene for creating perfect memories. I firmly believe you can never have too much ‘gorgeous’ + choose to create beautiful unique spaces that are inspired from my myriad of global travels. I never take for granted the trust my clients instil in me. It's an absolutely privilege.
So welcome aboard my journey. I hope you enjoy!
