“Like music, design is a creative process that involves combining compositions of shape, form and rhythm to produce a harmonious outcome” – Gillianne Griffiths.
A trained musician turned designer, Gillianne Griffiths creates interior spaces that are elegant, sophisticated and uncomplicated.
Gillianne’s interiors are warm, calm and inviting with the use of natural elements, unique objects, and her trademark monochromatic colour palette with accents of muted colour. Her Main Ridge House project is breathtaking and was shortlisted for the Australia Interior Design Awards 2018 – Residential Design.
Studio Griffiths was founded in 2014 and has been shortlisted for major awards such as the Idea Awards 2017 and the Australian Interior Design Awards 2018.
