ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

Houses fascinate me; I love that they provide us with shelter whilst keeping our precious belongings & stories safely within. Spaces that are truly loved, stand out from the crowd. And when given the appropriate attention provide us with an abundance of joy in return.
I adore sourcing and decorating with designs that are beautifully crafted, carefully chosen because they speak to their owners; I also love that simply styling a space with heart and dexterity brings joy to its occupants.
I’m Rachael and I live in Brisbane. I have a passion for real homes, styling in its many forms eg. Interior Styling, Prop styling, Editorial,  Property styling, Design and a love of being resourceful. Let’s chat….

Through my styling work and this blog I enjoy;

  • Recommending / Sourcing beautiful designs, products and artworks made with a whole lot of love to inspire others and make them smile
  • Helping others feel happier via the importance of styling a home with love
  • Inspiring others with interior styling tools to take steps to improve their homes

Rachael,of Hip Brown Home, did a really wonderful job at my Cleveland house, it looked amazing when she’d finished her decorating. Rachael turned my rather stark looking rooms into a welcoming environment. The colour scheme she selected for the furnishings was quite different to what I thought would suit but it co ordinated so well with my carpet and curtain colours. Her skills turned my house in to a home.

Comment from Hip Brown Home
Hi Robyn, I adored working on your house! It was a gorgeous journey, that I felt privileged to be part of. The muted blues, teal, grey and naturals tones looked spot on; I love that nature never gets it wrong. Hope all is wonderful with you! Best regards Rachael x

Rachael consulted on my home – it gave me a styling plan and it has helped me like my home more.
Rachael has a very open and warm nature which made it easy for me to welcome her into my personal space and helped me achieve the outcome I desired.

Working with Rachael from Hip Brown Home was a pleasure. Rachael is down to earth and offers a very dedicated, personalised service. We specifically engaged her to style and photograph a range of our products for a coastal magazine feature. We were delighted with the outcome and the styled images of our products in the magazine really epitomised coastal living. We would definitely work with Rachael again.
