Well versed in the art of creating spaces which are defined by a clear style perspective while equally honouring the unique design of the home, Cooper Robinson are established as a leading interior design firm for the residential property market. The firm have a long history with Marshall White and have cemented themselves as one of our preferred interior styling teams for good reason. We love the way Cooper Robinson can make a house feel like a home.
Principal stylist, Megan Robinson, joined us for a chat about the art of balance in design, her favourite interior trends and what makes her family home so special.
Marshall White: How did you find your niche as interior specialists for the residential property market?
Megan Robinson: Our background has always been interior design and our family company has been working in this field for years. Our very first real estate styling project was for a private client who needed an investment property made-over for a sales campaign. The property was listed at the time with a Marshall White agent and the rest is history. Interior styling for the real estate sector has been a natural fit for us.
MW: Your style is always simple and well designed with the perfect compromise of neutral and striking elements. What/who are your sources of inspiration?
MR: Thank you! We work from the understanding and principal that you need a great neutral base – whether that be neutrals or greys – before you can start to inject some impact. We are constantly striking a balance between creating a great interior design fit-out and one that complements the home. Particularly for real estate styling, the idea is to enhance the property. At the end of the day, it’s the home that needs to be showcased, not our styling work. It’s a subtle, but very important factor. Our large team of experienced stylists come from a diverse range of backgrounds including fashion, magazines and interior design. They all bring their own unique style to the Cooper Robinson brand. Design meetings are our favourite part of the week; covering international trends, local designers and all the amazing content out there.
MW: Are there any trends you can’t get enough of at the moment?
MR: I love natural fibres, I’m still crushing on forest green as a base and velvet – I love velvet!
MW: In your own home, what are some of your most cherished interior elements?
MR: We have a pretty ‘arty’ home. My kids and their friends are artists. My most cherished elements are the things that make our house a home, such as their paintings and sculptures. My two Golden Retrievers – do they count?
MW: If you could define the style of Cooper Robinson in three words, what would they be?
MR: Considered, personal, layered.
