Designer Discovery

We would like to Introduce- Mardi Doherty, the Director of Doherty Design Studio.
Doherty Design studio is a multi- disciplinary practice based in Melbourne. Led by Mardi, formerly a partner of the successful Doherty Lynch Design Studio- Which created tailored residential and commercial environments from concept through to completion in Australia. We were lucky enough to sneak in and grab some of her time and get some inside about herself and the studio

When did you discover that Interior Design was the career you wanted to pursue?

I’ve had a passion for art and design since I was a child. My family were surrounded by creative friends, some of whom were building their own homes so I suppose that was where my love for building and design generated

I realised I wanted it as a career once accepted into the Interior Design course, and when we started learning more about the history or art and design. I was hooked, and following lots of travel after uni I knew it was the most natural career for me

SandringhamHouse012_lowerresHow do you describe your Aesthetic?

Considered, layered, detailed yet simple. We try to create warmth in all of our interiors

Who/What would you consider your greatest design inspirations at the moment?

Kelly Werstler and David Collins, both are amazing designers with a very classic yet invigorating and layered style. I was fortunate to work with David Collins before he passed away and he continues to inspire me

There have been many but one that stands out are the 3 Paul & Joe stores that we designed, both here in Melbourne and in Sydney

Souveraine – Sofia Fume, Col. Mistral. Its a gorgeous fabric which has varying vertical shades of blue, we’re currently using it for curtains in a home in Melbourne
