Home Beautiful 


After three of our own renovations, a home build and years designing for others, I was very fortunate to have our own home featured in Home Beautiful Magazine. It was certainly lovely to know that someone else could see my love of creating a home.

“It was personally very exciting as I guess I needed the validation that I had something to offer and I gained the confidence to believe in myself and my ability. I think as humans we all suffer from self-doubt, I sure have had my fair share, but I knew that people needed the kind of help I was offering and it was rewarding when I could help them.”


Confident Woman – Carmen Darwin

What does confidence mean to you?

Confidence for me means being able to take steps in the direction of your dreams, desires or passions regardless of the opinions of others. It means feeling powerful about who you are, the choices that you make, and the services that you deliver because you know you are good enough just as you are. Confidence to me is when a  woman pursues what she believes in 

Confident Life

Houzz Awards


Carmen Darwin of Brisbane, Australia Awarded Best Of Houzz 2017

Brisbane, Australia January X, 2017 – Carmen Darwin of Brisbane has won “Best Of Design” onHouzz®, the leading platform for home renovation and design. 


I was born to create a business that purely aligns with my life values and leaves me free for exploration and growth….not stagnation and regret.

I am passionate about creating an online school and services that inspire and empower women to create a home that they really love.

I strive for a business and working life when the lines are blurred between the two and I live in the grey in between.

I will never give up my dream to create a location independent business which allows me to explore and travel while I run a successful business.

My superpower is my vision. I can see possibilities for people’s homes and lifestyles that they can’t.

I believe that I would much rather have a go and fail than to die to wonder “What if I’d….” The short term pain of failure is worth it for the life that awaits me on the other side. I’m on a quest to fulfil that dream in my soul.
