Working with Rosie has been an absolute dream. Rosie came to us with a budget, a vision and lots of creative ideas which was so exciting. Early on, Rosie introduced me to her Graphic Designer (Natalie Jensen) so that we together could find a common theme for the look of the centre in both colour and design.

As the centre is located in the heart of the beach community Mount Maunganui, beach was the given theme. The under 2’s room was going to have an underwater theme and the over 2’s room was a land based beach theme. Each room got a custom made play area. For the over 2’s it was an ice cream truck with a play kitchen inside and the under 2’s had a submarine with an upholstered base and pull up mirror.

For the lockers we took images from the centre’s branding pamphlet and made each locker door unique with individual beach images.

Good communication throughout the process on details and design ideas has been key for the development of the project.

Elinor / Starex

Working with Elinor and the team at Starex was an absolute pleasure right from day 1, they helped to make the process of setting up our new centre both inspiring and exciting.

Elinor met with us to get our ideas and the theme of our centre, she worked thru budgets, colour schemes and even worked with our branding agency. She always listened carefully to our views and aspirations, she took into account the layout of our building and how things would best work and create maximum impact. I can honestly say that there has not been 1 person who has come through our centre and not said WOW to our furniture.

It’s so nice knowing that what you envisage can come to life, but better than you ever dreamed it could. The team would meet and discuss our ideas then design new concepts for us. It was not a process of, this is what we make now choose what you want. Starex had the ability to have some special furniture custom designed and made, this is a really special feature that I appreciated and therefore makes us unique. The team are very talented to say the least.

The end result far exceeded our expectations. Attention to detail was second to none, the total cost came in just under budget and we found that the whole team were always flexible, accommodating and nothing short of lovely to deal with.

I personally could not recommend the team at Starex more highly and totally trust in their ability to listen and then produce exactly what you want to the highest standard and durability.
