Mina Staples has been creating beautiful spaces for clients across Sydney since 2008. Graduating with a B.Design degree from UTS, she built on her experience with Briony Fitzgerald Design and Touch Interiors to develop her own distinct style. Utilising texture, colour and authentic materials, Mina creates timeless, uncontrived interiors. Mina believes a home should be a constant pleasure to dwell in. Through her intuitive approach she delivers thoughtful and harmonious interiors of every scale and budget for her clients.



Whim joined the studio in 2022 after working at Welsh + Major Architects and brings a unique perspective.  With a Bachelor of Design in Architecture and Bachelor of Fine Art/ Sculpture, Whim draws on these disciplines, infusing them in her approach to interior design. Whim is interested in creating spaces that feel inviting, relaxed and are true to a client’s lifestyle, rather than leaning on trends. Mina and Whim complement one another in their distinct skillsets and approach the design process.

  • Working with Mina on our recent renovation was an absolute dream. From our first meeting she was able to balance our personal aesthetic, budget and practical needs with her vast experience, her knowledge of current and enduring design trends and her incredible eye for beauty. Her primary concern was making the space as gorgeous as possible while at the same time allowing it to be liveable and welcoming.

    Mina guided us through the entire process including communicating directly with a variety of companies on our behalf. Her experience at this point was invaluable as she was able to unify the whole design across a range of different suppliers. The final result is one we are so proud of and the reaction of all those who visit the space speaks for itself. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mina to anyone who values clarity, quality and beauty.

  • What a wonderful experience we had with Mina Staples helping us through a myriad of decisions when outfitting our new apartment.

    Mina removed the endless doubts we had about size/colour/finish for so many items. The outcome of furniture (indoor and outdoor), rugs, wallpaper, paint, window treatments, artwork placement, beds, bedding, bed heads, mirrors etc is just fantastic.

    She listened to our likes and dislikes, gave us wonderful options to look at, and if we needed a broader choice, it was not a problem.

    Effortless for us was Mina’s handling of deliveries and logistics – a great bonus.

    Also her trades people were of the highest quality.

    Mina is a delight to work with – she always had our wants and needs at top of mind. She is a real talent. In the end we feel it is economical to get a designer of Mina’s calibre to design, select and source decor for us.

    After many face to face meetings; visits with her to some fabulous suppliers and always prompt responses to any questions and emails; I can recommend Mina for any interior design work.

  • I was sceptical about hiring an interior designer but we were very fortunate to have selected Mina to design the interior of our unit in Bellevue Hill and will definitely be using her again. We thought we knew a lot more than we did.

    She gave us a really good understanding of different styles, what works together, what doesn’t and really focussed on designing the place we wanted to live in.

    More importantly, Mina worked with our budget and advised where there were opportunities to save money and where you really need invest. Mina sourced fabrics, furniture and suppliers we could never have found on our own.

    Perhaps her best service was acting as a middle man between me and my wife, working out trade-offs we would have struggled to agree on by ourselves. We couldn’t have got our place looking nearly as good without her for the same budget and can’t recommend her highly enough.

  • We didn’t have any reservations – it was just finding a designer who could be sympathetic to our ideas and after seeing our neighbours apartment we made our choice – and it was a great one.

    Mina, you found some wonderful pieces that suited our style which we’re sure we couldn’t have found ourselves, and had the confidence to push us — especially the green bedroom which we love!

    Also your advice on where and how to achieve a balanced look with placement of paintings, furniture, mirrors etc. and incorporating our exisiting furniture.

    We’d recommend you to anyone who needed a facelift to their existing home or a new blank canvas. We loved your enthusiasm, creativity, friendliness and ability to visualise the end result. You were very approachable and gave us confidence in your suggestions and the choices we made together.

    With very best wishes, and thanks again.

  • Mina Staples provided a great service, tailored to my specific needs. I required an interior designer’s eye and know how to revamp a one bedroom apartment within weeks.

    From my initial contact, Mina was professional and friendly, answered my questions thoroughly, showed a good understanding of the project and provided clear information about her services. I felt confident to engage Mina for my project.

    After our first site meeting, Mina provided stylish, functional and flexible decorative design options. She assisted with trades, wall colours, door handles, lights, furniture, soft furnishings and whatever else was an immediate priority.

    There is much to recommend about Mina Staples Interiors. Mina’s eye for design is exceptional. Her in-depth experience, professionalism and down to earth manner made it a pleasure to work with her. She made a daunting project easy and I have no hesitation in recommending and working with her again.
