Auckland Renovation consultant Lara Wiley has worked in design consultancy and project coordination for both new residential builds and renovations. Her passion for colour and interior design began in her teens when her parents extended the family home, doubling it in size. While her mum managed the project, Lara joined her on design meetings with the architects and on trips to select interior finishes.

After completing a business degree, Lara joined a boutique property development company in Auckland and continued her learning on the job. Lara has since worked closely with clients for different companies within the design and build industry.

Lara understands the need to take time to understand a client’s design dreams and priorities. Experience has also taught her that budget and space don’t always allow for everything. She sees this as a creative challenge and works to provide clients with the best result possible.  

Since joining Refresh, Lara’s focus has been on kitchen and bathroom renovations. She prioritises creating spaces that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

In her downtime, Lara enjoys being with family and friends. She likes trying new recipes, a good book and the cinema. Her love of dance, from an early age, means she’s always keen to see the Broadway/stage productions when they’re in town.

We’re ready to help with your home renovation project!
