Thornlie Christian College has recently engaged in a number of significant building projects, the first of which was the commissioning of its new Administration Centre. At this time we engaged the services of Kim Robertson and La Vie Interiors to provide the internal finishes and furnishings as well as the external colour scheme of the building.
Kim was able to provide us with an outstanding service that saw her expending many hours outside of her brief to ensure that we achieved truly outstanding value for money while providing us with fantastic finishes and ambience.

Our Reception and Staffroom, in particular, are works of vision. The colours and design that La Vie provided prompted us to review our corporate image, the subsequent changes having since permeated through to our official stationery and the design of our College website.

Our new staff room provides our staff with cafeteria-style living characterised by comfort and style.

La Vie Interiors has since gone on to coordinate the interiors and exteriors of our new Library and Multi-purpose Hall. Both buildings have distinctive identities of their own while remaining within the parameters of our overall corporate image.

Kim’s attention to the very smallest of details while remaining within budgetary expectations and still providing spectacular outcomes for her clients is the reason why her business continues to expand at its current rapid rate.

I have no hesitation at all in commending Kim and La Vie Interiors to you if you are looking for that extra-special intangible that will make your project special and unique! 


“Building homes is an occupational hazard for a Building Designer, so when my wife and I were planning our 7th new home, we decided on a different more contemporary style. While the structural design came together well, being a new style for us, we felt we needed the assistance of an experience interior designer. Having seen the work Kim had done for one of my clients we organised a consultation with La Vie to see what was possible.

From the first meeting we felt totally comfortable working with Kim, she was enthusiastic and communicated her ideas in a clear straight forward way that made what can be a stressful process a thoroughly enjoyable one. She was able to quickly identify what we were trying to achieve and within a very short timeframe, developed a colour scheme that we were excited about. Her ability to add warmth and texture into the scheme and to suggest alternative designs for the kitchen and bathroom cabinets has made a significant difference to the finished home and we could not be more delighted.

We would be happy to recommend Kim and her staff at La Vie to anyone seeking the services of a skilled interior designer.”

I am so thrilled with our new home and a lot of thanks must go to Kim and Donna from La Vie. The colours Kim picked for the outside of the house with the feature stone at the portico have received many compliments and the colours inside flow through seamlessly. From the very start I felt Kim knew what I wanted and the end result is a home we are so proud of. Both Kim and Donna were delightful to deal with, with the utmost professionalism. Nothing was ever too much trouble – whether it was advice for window treatments or render colours. We also received the benefit of Kim’s discounts with carpets and shutters. I have already recommended La Vie to several friends and will continue to do so. I feel it is thanks to La Vie that we now have our dream home.

We have had the occasion to utilize the services of La Vie Interiors several times in the past two years.
Kim Robertson, the interior designer, has advised and completely furnished four new apartments for our family.
Each apartment has been distinctive and unique and done to our total satisfaction. She has a remarkable eye for detail and all item which were required to “move in” from furniture, utensils, cutlery and soft furnishings were chosen and set up to impeccable standards. She listened to our needs and budget restraints. Kim was always affable, and never rushed any decisions until we were happy.
Her service overall was exceptional and we would be happy to use her again if the occasion arises.”

Vibrant and astonishing! Working with Kim and Donna on a $3.5 million building project was an absolute delight. The ideas were vibrant and exciting and we were absolutely thrilled at the great deals they negotiated on our behalf. Every fine detail was covered, documented and followed up and with great gusto they looked after our project until handover. The reviews have been astonishing and we continue to be complemented on both the interior colour schemes and attention to detail. Will they be back on future building projects – you better believe it!
