Interior designer taranaki

The Design Loft is a boutique studio run by designer Christine Duckett.

I have been surrounded by building plans and construction for as long as I can remember. 

It was a natural progression to complete interior design qualifications which morphed into a business some twelve years ago. 

‘The Design Loft’ is my latest enterprise. This space enables me to work on design projects and have textile samples on hand.  Drapery and soft furnishings combine technical and aesthetic elements and bringing these requirements together is an area I am proficient at, and particularly enjoy.

Colour is my forté.


I am happy to work with the blank canvas of a new build and am just as comfortable with partial makeovers, incorporating existing pieces and repurposing your treasured objects, contemporary or traditional.

I have worked alongside established building firms to deliver their show home exterior and interior schemes, creating ambient spaces to the highest level.

Customer service is paramount. I pride myself on effective communication, a crucial skill. I deliver clients’ expectations, by combining my creativity, knowledge and understanding of the practicalities to their desired end result.

Creating beautiful and functioning havens is what I do best ….
