We design
spaces that

feel good

What We Do

Buildings, extensions, renovations and interiors designed by Heartly are creative, confident, practical and beautiful.

There is a big gap between high-end architecture and basic drafting. We work in this space, balancing beauty and practicality to create homes and spaces that people love.

We do this well because:

  • We listen and we get to know you and your needs
  • Our approach to design carefully balances how a space looks and feels with liveability and practicality
  • We are creative and professional
  • We are up to the minute with local and international design
  • And... we have really good taste
At Work

We design your home or space with you working closely with qualified building designers and architects who advise on all structural details. We direct how your space will look, feel and flow and we engage technical expertise to prepare construction drawings. We design and thoroughly document all interior details and provide direction on all elements that are essential to draw a project together to create a cohesive and stunning result.

Our Approach

Our Team

Director and Principal Designer Mikayla Rose established Heartly in 2009. She now leads the small team of Designers and support crew at Heartly. We are down-to-earth, passionate and we love what we do. From our studio in Abbotsford, Melbourne, we design projects locally and in other states and regional areas throughout Australia.

Design direction on all projects is overseen by Mikayla, supported by Shannen Conway and Lauren Kay.

Mikayla
Shannen Conway

Interior Designer Shannen Conway (Bachelor of Design, Interior Design) joined Heartly in 2017 and has been integral to the Heartly team ever since. Shannen works across multiple design projects from conception through to completion as well as supporting the management of the business. She enjoys the technicality of design and finding solutions to make challenging spaces work, but her real passion has developed from the personal aspect of residential design; she loves helping people bring their ideas for their home to life.

Lauren Kay

Lauren Kay joined Heartly in 2016 whilst completing her Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours) at RMIT. She very quickly established herself as an intuitive and skilled designer and in 2018, was a finalist in the highly coveted Design Institute of Australia, graduate of the year awards. Lauren is driven by her passion for creating spaces that have a positive impact on the way we live. She is a critical and vibrant member of the team and delivers an exceptionally high level of detail to her projects.
