OUR ETHOS

Our interior design studio was formed in 2007 by principals Juliette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke. Since its inception, Arent&Pyke has grown into an award-winning design practice with a distinctive style and approach to living in the home.

 

We believe that our clients should connect emotionally with the spaces they live in. We work collaboratively, seeking to understand exactly how you want to live, helping you uncover your own tastes and aesthetic visions, supporting you to make informed decisions – and ultimately creating carefully considered, functional and beautiful spaces that fit your life. We want your interior to work for you and to delight you every day. We want you to feel at home.

"Our home is beautiful, comfortable, relaxed and elegant. What a result! Sarah-Jane and Juliette were genuinely wanting to make sure we were pleased with concepts and the end result. You can't fake authenticity. There was a true collaboration between architect, builder, designer and client."
- Client, The Avenue
"Every single time I come home and every single time I wake up, I love my surroundings. I am so pleased to have a home and not a house and I feel so strongly that it is perfect."
- Client, Park View House
"Arent&Pyke have created interiors that reflect the personality of those that live there. They have also shown the ability to balance many materials and textures, as well as play on the proportions of the rooms using soft elements within these spaces. The seamless transition between interior insertions and furniture elements is delightful. The design creates a grand and vibrant home yet maintains a casual sense of family life."
