Interior Secrets (VIC)
This innovation initially came to life when…
One average 24-year-old man from the western suburbs of Melbourne was moving to a new home and given the challenge of refurnishing his parents’ entire home with a small budget of $5,000. At the time he was living at home with his parents and was sick and tired of coming home to uncoordinated colours and uncoordinated pieces of furniture. He took this opportunity from his parents and was determined to have designer pieces of furniture at an affordable price but found nothing. Interior Secrets was born.
