In yet another highly competitive category, one company stood out for its innovative strategies – such as styling tiny homes and vintage caravans – which have created a point of difference from competitors, as well as additional income streams. Congratulations to our Property Stylists winner, Vault Interiors
In the last 12 months Vault Interiors has grown from providing property-styling services to homeowners and agents all over Sydney, to now offering custom furniture-buying packages for homeowners – and the company has even branched out into renovating vintage caravans for clients. “It has been great fun and a point of difference from our competitors, who generally only offer styling for sale,” says Justine Wilson, director at Vault Interiors.
“Our sustainable tiny homes offer affordable-living options, are eco-friendly, and are a personal passion of mine, and it’s been very exciting to broaden the avenues of our creative work and to be a leader in this new trend.”
Having completed custom furniture fit-outs and projects in New Zealand, Byron Bay and the Hawkesbury region, Vault Interiors has tripled warehouse space and grown from a team of nine to 17 staff.
“We also grew from two trucks to four delivery trucks, all in the last 18 months,” Wilson says.
“We style, on average, 14 (three-bedroom package) homes a week – this calendar year it will be close to 740 properties that we will style. Our turnover will go from $1,450,000 last financial year to over $2m this financial year. We are one of the leading property-styling companies in Sydney.
“I’ve been honoured to offer lots of tips to homeowners by contributing many articles to many media publications, and I appear regularly on Sky News Real Estate to discuss all things styling, which has been a wonderful accolade. To be seen as an expert in my field and to share my passion for design with viewers is one of my proudest achievements to date.”
“In the past 18 months, it’s fair to say that Vault Interiors has gone from strength to strength, with its warehouse tripling in size, its staff nearly doubling in number, and its revenue reaching record levels. As well as styling nearly 750 properties for homeowners and investors in the past year, Vault Interiors also styled a number of homes pro bono, which reinforces its commitment to creating beautiful spaces for everyone." - Nicola McDougall, Bricks and Mortar Media
