An insight into H + G
Hello! I’m Hailey, the H part of H and G Designs.
I believe in doing things differently, working hard and that an interior is a direct reflection of the soul (I actually think that one was Coco Chanel’s but I believe her!)
I have always wanted to own my own business, I think this started on a caravan trip around Australia when I was 8. I thought I was destined to own and manage my own caravan park, many receipt books later and a sister totally over playing “caravan parks” I moved on and over time H&G Designs has evolved to be the business of my dreams.
H&G Designs started at the end of 2014. Glenn (the G part) and I having a passion for building and renovating, albeit at this stage Glenn somewhat more qualified was matched by my relentless enthusiasm (some would say obsession!). We started off with a low budget unit renovation and then onto building a house from scratch. During this process we were always looking for ways we could create a difference to our places, make them unique. We would spend hours sketching up new ideas and making them the next day.
This is when we realised we both had a deep belief in good design and that aesthetically pleasing and functionality can and should go hand in hand.
We created a great little team both adding to the creativity of each other’s designs. Initially Glenn was the more hands on skilled team member but with his refined teaching and my love for getting my hands dirty we both are involved in the designing ,prototyping and project management processes.
Glenn remaining in his role as a Project Manager for a commercial building company has been a great source of inspiration and industry knowledge (as the hardest working “volunteer” the business has ever seen, ha!)
From our humble first renovation where the inspiration was created H&G Designs has grown into an online homewares and furniture shop which features our own Australian designed products, supplying our products to the BEST (no bias at all!) Australian and International homeware stores, we’ve continued to design and build our own projects and well as consulting on residential, commercial and retail interior,exterior design as well as providing furniture packages.
H&G Designs full design and build projects have had full features in Home Beautiful, Adore Magazine and Design Sponge and our products frequently grace the pages of our favourite magazines; Inside Out, Real Living, Grand Designs Australia, House and Garden, Adore Magazine, Minty Magazine and many more.
We love designing, we equally love seeing pictures of our products in homes of people also wanting that something a bit unique. We are forever sketching, making, refining and building so keep in check for an exciting new range of products we would love to see in your home.
