Our story

Meet Denise Lockhart, Founder & Principal Designer

I’m Denise Lockhart, Principal of All Design Co. In March 2013, I embarked on a new journey, transitioning from a 20-year career in fashion design to the captivating world of interior design. After completing my interior design course and fueled by a desire for innovation, I took the plunge and founded All Design Co. Starting small, I initially worked on projects referred by friends and family. Through word of mouth and client referrals, my business blossomed, enabling me to design residential homes, with a focus on renovations, ranging from small-scale transformations to expansive projects.

Over the past decade, I’ve cultivated a team of trusted trades and suppliers, fostering a collaborative environment. Additionally, I invested in my professional growth by completing a Cert 4 Project Management Practice, enhancing my skills in scheduling and design management.

Our clients

We love working with homeowners who entrust us with their vision, values our experience, and possesses the confidence to explore innovative design concepts. At All Design Co, we’re not just creating interiors; we’re curating lifestyles, one home at a time.

“Denise listened to what we wanted and then took our ideas and grew them into a beautiful new kitchen and laundry design. She paid careful attention to the needs of our growing family but with an eye to making it look amazing. We couldn’t be happier with the result and with Denise’s designs and guidance.”
