Struggling to pull it all together?

At Interior Joy we believe life transitions can be overwhelming.

Overwhelm can make people lose confidence and direction.

A wellbeing-focussed home design supports new beginnings; wake up to every new day with ease and joy.

When a home is designed for wellbeing it supports all areas of life.

Hi there! I'm Debra Roberts, Interior Designer, Well-being Advocate, Health Professional, Mother of 3, Nanna of 2, Happy Wife, and Empty Nester who loves all things design, home and family.

I was a Nurse... and what I saw in nursing is that 60% - 80% of patients that I worked with had preventable diseases. That led me to becoming a Wellness Coach, so instead of treating the illness I could prevent the illness and I could save people from years of chronic illness. I could save people from that by way of getting ahead of the problem. What I found as a Wellness Coach, there are (3) things that a human being needs to have to be well: Body, Mind, Environment.

What I know about the Body, is the importance of putting into your body the things that are going to make you well. That means, drinking the right things, eating the right things, and moving your body daily.

The second thing is your Mind. I know the importance of doing meditative things. I know the importance of doing intentional things with our mindset and learning how to be authentic and vulnerable with our emotions.

The third thing is your Environment. This third piece of wellness is how well you are connected to your environment. Feeling connected to your environment is crucial, and it means that it is nourishing. It also means that it is designed with consideration to how you want to feel in each room and how the spaces can facilitate what you and your family need to be the best versions of yourselves.


Your home is an important element of your environment because we spend around 90% of our time indoors. You need a home that restores, vitalises, calms, stimulates, cocoons, energises and creates possibilities for you to reach your greatest potential...a home environment that reduces stress, restores the soul, and that encourages connections with others.

That third piece, the home Environment, is where I help others thrive, that’s where my heart is calling me to serve. So now what I do is serve people by creating an environment that is enriching to their wellness, that is part of their wellness journey. I do this by leading people through a 5-point system, to identify their wellness needs, and then use this information as the foundation for Their Interior Design, to enhance their emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical and social wellbeing.

If you value these things too, get in touch, I'd love to meet you and have a chat about your project.



What our client's are saying:

"Debra has been a wonderful source of inspiration for my home. When I was feeling lost for where to start she listened to my own half-formed ideas and showed me how to knit them together into something that is cohesive, practical, and brings my vision to life. She is both professional and super approachable, and has a keen eye for designing a space that is easy to live in as well as being beautiful. I'm so happy with the ideas I have implemented so far and can't wait to see the final product!
