Jodie Carter has always loved design, early memories of visiting art galleries & historic homes with her Gran as a child are still vivid. Jodie will never forget the first truly amazing country home she visited with her. The massive front door was opened revealing a grand entry with black & white marble floors & a huge timber staircase with carpet runner. Jodie knew she was somewhere special. There were Deer heads on the wall, coat racks & gumboots, high ceilings & timber panelling. It was a little scary, but so grand & she loved it.
Jodie began to think more about homes, the feelings they evoke, what they say about the people who live there. Being surrounded by history, stories and memories. Jodie bought her first home in New Zealand at 17 & began the lifelong love affair. Jodie does what she does because she cannot imagine ever doing anything else. Jodie is about to start her 6th renovation project herself, the largest to date & it’s got timber panelling, a grand entry & arches! She can’t wait.
