A little about Bec and Elska Interiors
Hi there. Because your home is such a personal thing I thought you might like to know a little about me before we start. I have always loved creating and so have my family. As a young girl I would always be sketching in books when I shouldn’t or making interesting little things around home. I remember scooting around fabric stores with my brother and sister while my mum searched for her next sewing inspiration. However my career life did not start there.
As a teenager I headed into science and then risk management which I enjoyed for a decade. It was an “interesting” job. It wasn’t until the birth of my daughter and the sudden death of a friend that my perspective on life changed and I realised I needed more than an interesting job. I wanted greater connections with people and my own story. It needed to matter. Family and home became a center point for me and as an avid renovator I saw the opportunity to help others create the homes they could cherish. Not just a pretty house. Spaces that offer opportunity for creating memories like baking with the kids, parties with family and enjoyable bath times. So I took my handful of home renovator skills and went back to study interior design.
From there Elska Interiors was born. Elska is an ancient nordic word meaning Love. I have been renovating for more than 15 years now and I don’t mind jumping on the tools around my own home. I run Elska Interiors from my home town of Samford Valley, Brisbane, in between looking after my kids Alex and Lillian.
My design philosophy leans heavily towards connecting you with your home, history and environment. Through my collective skill set of science, interior design and project management I am happily able to find meaningful ways to offer home design that is joyful and nurturing.
While I am based in Samford Valley, my mission is to help as many people, wherever they are, create connections with their own home and story. As such I frequently post advice to my socials and I have launched a range of eBooks to help homeowners on their design journey. All my best, Bec xo
