We believe that a clever renovation can transform lives. Our role is to create a home that you love — a collection of spaces, materials and colours that spark joy daily. We bring light into dark homes, warmth into cold rooms and space where it’s needed.
We are a close-knit group of specialists who believe that every old home can blossom.
We’re excited about the possibilities of good design — how we transform a tired or awkwardly arranged home into something truly magical.
We are known for our innate sense of style, our discerning taste, and our friendly and hardworking culture.
With women in key roles, we are meticulous in our approach to creating perfectly tailored homes.
We are radically different to any other building renovation company in Melbourne, as we take care of every detail, from extensive structural work to gorgeously finished interiors.
We also take care of many of the less glamorous elements and can help with arranging removalists, storage and short-term rental accommodation.
Our project managers oversee every step of the renovation to ensure you love the result as much as we do.
Cate founded Floret in 2012. Her previous careers included nursing, in which care and organisation were key. She later worked in England, hanging art collections, where she used her keen eye and developed her rare ability to balance proportion, texture and colour.
Back in Australia, and with two young children, Cate decided to put money on the table while doing something she loved.
“I believe that every design is personal. The connection we have with clients determines how the projects will look at the end of the design process. We must understand the clients and bond with them, be a part of their dream. Their dream is our dream.”
