“I believe every space has beauty” 


Hi, I'm Kate Alexander, the Creative Director at Places & Graces, and I want to help you discover your homes hidden talent.

Before starting Places & Graces, I ran a brand strategy and graphic design business, Studio Alexander. This taught me two things – most problems can be solved through good design – and – I love helping clients solve problems. Now, as an interior stylist, I use design to help clients make the most of their spaces.

My experience with colour & composition, combined with a passion for mixing modern with heritage, is what forms my approach to interiors, and presenting a space at it's absolute best – in the timeframe and on budget – is what gets me going. I endeavor to match the architecture of a home with the needs and loves of those who live there.

There is both science and magic in the art of styling. Like any skill, you can learn to understand it, and with the right direction and enough practice, you can become good at it. Part of helping clients find their homes hidden talent is sharing our insights so you can give it a go yourself. That's why we wrote an interior styling book and run workshops to teach you how to find, and live, your own interior style. And if you're not a DIYer, we will happily style your space for you.
