“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”


And this couldn’t be more true of your home - the way it makes you feel to open your door and enter a space you just love to live in.

Hi, I’m Ann-Louise Hyde of Hyde Inside

And this is what I do: make spaces to love. 

How I work

I listen, I research, I come up with creative and original concepts that work for you, your lifestyle and your home. Spaces that are rich with personal meaning and true to their inhabitants and the lives they lead. 

I work with empathy and responsibility to you; enabling a new ease of movement whilst distilling your taste, key pieces, textures and colours to create a vibe which is truly unique and validates your lifestyle to the point of delight. I love making sense of what you want but can't yet see. And then bringing it together beyond your expectations.

When we work together on your new home, office, kitchen, bathroom or lounge, there are no expensive mistakes or bad choices.  My care over form, light and colour can have a transformative effect which customers could not previously imagine.  Ergonomic principals and careful choice of materials ensure functional design, making life easier and products longer lasting. 

With me you get style wisdom: I know the difference between fashion fads and lasting cool. 

The best part for you? You realise you don't have to worry - it's going to feel so much better AND look great.

Client feedback

"Ann-Louise had really clever, beautiful and original ideas when we renovating our bathroom.  Ann-Louise took all the stress out of making all those expensive and numerous decisions. I'm quite sure I saved much more than what her fees were because there were no mistakes! … After the great success of the bathroom, I had no hesitation engaging her with the renovation design of our kitchen, dining and living area. She did an equally great job - I love it!"

Natalie Wingate | Director, Autodor

"We have used Hyde Inside on a number of occasions with our interior decorating. They have provided excellent service when we needed colour consultations, furniture design and sourcing of fabrics and rugs. Highly recommended for all round service, commitment and design expertise."

Kari Hoey | Head of Production, Warner Bros International Television Production, NZ

"We loved working with Ann-Louise and were thrilled we decided to trust her and go with all her fabric suggestions, they look fabulous. The best part was that Ann-Louise really listened to us then managed to produce something far better than what we had imagined but completely suited us and our home. We have had many lovely compliments on our new look lounge and dining room and I will certainly be calling on Ann-Louise again when we do our next renovating."
