Parkhurst Design

Parkhurst Design is a unique interior design studio, specialising in residential and marine interior design. I approach each interior design project with individuality. Just as clients are different, no two projects are the same and this is reflected in the completed projects.

I work alongside respected builders, architects, naval architects and boat builders to achieve the very best results for my clients.

"I feel very privileged to have known Kim from Parkhurst Design since 2005 when she came highly recommended to assist me with the renovation of a commercial office. I could see immediately that Kim had a unique ability with the use of colour. Since that time I have been lucky to have had Kim assist me with many renovations and a new house build choosing all interior colours, wallpapers and furnishings as well as exterior colours.

Kim is always professional, listens, and is therefore very understanding of your requirements. She is very easy to deal with, fun to work with and she always completes the project in the time frame required.

I would not hesitate to ask Kim for assistance with any future project I might have and would be most appreciative to have Kim’s input. I know I can leave the interior design side of any project to Kim whom I trust to come up with the perfect solution." - Jill Benton

"Kim from Parkhurst Design did a fantastic job working with myself and the build team of my custom sport fisher, Lady Alison. I highly recommend Kim as a talented and efficient interior designer and importantly someone who is very easy to get along with." - Rolf Masfen – Owner Lady Alison

"To Whom It May Concern

I have known Kim Forkert of Parkhurstdesign for over 15 years through her interior design work that she has done on both business and private colleagues and friends of mine. When my wife and I decided to totally refurbish our beach house it was naturally Parkhurstdesign that we engaged for our project. We enjoyed working with Kim and our finished cost effective result is amazing considering the parameters we had to work with. We would like to work with her again one day again and have no hesitation in recommending Parkhurstdesign as an interior designer for commercial, marine and private work." Kind Regards, Trevor & Sue Mitchell
