"It was an absolute pleasure working with Josephine on the renovation and refurbishment my heritage property in Hackney, Adelaide. I live interstate and Josephine and her talented team took care of absolutely everything. I arrived to pick up the keys on completion and was able to immediately enjoy my stay in my own home as everything had been taken care of.
They were a number of challenges inherent in this historic building and the design ideas and practical suggestions by Josephine re-imagined how the spaces in the property could be used.
As someone who was short of time decisions were made easy for me and I found I could trust the recommendations being made.
I valued the quality and care in trades that worked on the project. The beautiful end result is a testament to the great style and taste of One Rundle Trading Co."
"In 2018 we engaged Josephine to advise us on a major renovation of our house. We built a new European laundry and a built-in wardrobe, completely gutted and rebuilt two bathrooms, replace floor coverings in our kitchen, lounge room and hallways amongst other things. The project took three months and while we lived in the house. Josephine recommended a builder who complete all works on time, made sure that at the end of each day any mess that might interfere with our quiet enjoyment of the house was removed and completed the project within the estimate. She also recommended a number of trades including painters when the builders’ quotes were above expectation.
Josephine provided an overall design and coordination service.
The detailed services provided by Josephine included:
- Curtain and blind selection, making and fittings
- Colour selections
- Flooring selections and installation
- Furniture selections and placement, both new pieces and existing pieces
- Selection of toilets, a bath, handbasin and vanities plus all bathroom fittings
- Selection of soft furnishings such as loose cushions and throws, and accessories
- Selecting and commissioning some numbered prints
- Selection and placement of general decorative pieces and mirrors
"When the time came to furnish and style our newly acquired Fitzroy home, we had no hesitation in visiting Josephine and the team One Rundle, the recommendation came from friend and colleagues and we were pleasantly surprised and haven't looked back since.
Josephine's personal approach, professionalism and getting every detail on point has the daunting task of furnishing and styling our home a walk in the park.
For example, when we decided to give our ballroom fresh makeover Josephine was able to bring our vision to life.
She able to guide us with creative direction and styling solutions, including colour selections, floor design/layout, curtains, rugs, furniture and artwork. nothing was too hard and best of all everything was done within budget.
The ballroom was totally transformed into a beautiful space and we certainly could not have achieved this without Josephine and the One Rundle Co team, a testament to this was the room being featured in a published magazine.
We are extremely happy with the service and expertise provided.
We would highly recommend Josephine and the team at One Rundle Co with no hesitation."
"This project was an upstairs apartment in 1890s terrace that had been converted into an office unit. Access was tight and it was important to minimise disruption to surrounding tenants. The brief involved restoring the original, heritage features of the 2-bedroom apartment, renovating a bathroom and installing a gallery kitchen whilst going the space a light, serene, minimalist ambience.
Josephine is fabulous in involving you in as much or as little of the project as you wish. Whilst keen to contribute to the design I had no interest in negotiating or managing trades, Josephine presented a seamless design I had no interest in negotiating or managing trades. Josephine presented a seamless design theme throughout ad engaged brilliant tradespeople who were punctual, reliable, try and superb at what they do. As in all renovations of old buildings, surpasses arise and Josephine was extremely agile at adapting to minimise disruption. Working to a high budget she was considerate of where to send and where to save in order to not compromise the outcome. Her incredible eye and creative talent deliver unique projects that are congruent with the client’s taste.
From nontoxic floor boards and paint, to gorgeous furniture and origin artwork sourced by Josephine, my office is a haven of clam that clients (and I) look forward to spending time in. The One Rundle team extends to picture hanging, complimentary furniture delivery and I remain in awe of the manoeuvring of a massive 4-seater lounge up a narrow staircase. Working with Josephine is such a wonderful experience, her energy and talent are incomparable and her ability to charm grumpy neighbours was magnificent to watch. For beautiful, unique projects delivered on the and on a budget, I have no hesitation in recommending Josephine's services."
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Josephine Marshall and the team at One Rundle Trading.
We first engaged Josephine having visited the One Rundle Trading store in Dulwich in 2015 and asked her to help us with decorating of our farm house in Strathalbyn.
She provided us with invaluable guidance in regards to colour schemes, new furniture selections, advice on retaining existing furniture and lighting. Josephine also sourced and organised trades to complete electrical, carpentry and painting upgrades.
In 2020, it was time to take on stage 2 of our renovation. Once again, we approached Josephine to guide us. These improvements included new flooring, furniture upgrades, opening up doorways, pairing throughout, new blind, soft furnishings and ore electrical improvements. This was a larger renovation but we felt comfortable having Josephine oversee the project.
Together with Josephine’s eye for design, coordination and attention to detail, the One Rundle Trading team back up was exceptional. Complimentary delivery and the professional hanging of artwork and mirrors were also included to add to the whole experience.
In summary, we would highly recommend Josephine for your interior design projects. We have had many compliments and we really enjoy living in this beautiful home."
"We have lived in the Unley area of Adelaide for 30 years in the same large brick bungalow originally built in 1924. It had been renovated many times and expanded upstairs and before our arrival painted inside in pinks and greys. These colours were popular at the time but not at all compatible with the age of the building and we repainted but really didn’t make any major changes for over ten years.
18 years ago, we asked Josephine Marshall from One Rundle for some assistance and since then she has helped us with many projects, essentially redecorating and refurbishing, in stages, virtually all of the rooms in the house. We sought (and usually took) her advice particularly with regard to colours, floor coverings. window treatments and many furnishings and decorations including mirrors. Importantly, she always presented us with options and one of these was quite often to reuse or reconfigure what we already had rather than to replace it.
The continuity of input from Josephine over many years has resulted in a beautiful and stylishly decorated but comfortable home, contemporary, but in keeping with the era of the house.
Recently we undertook a major renovation of the family living and kitchen areas enlarging them by enclosing verandas. Josephine had major and important input and influence over the general feeling and layout of the design as well as her usual role of providing invaluable advice regarding colours, lighting and flooring and helping select and procure furniture notably a bespoke dining setting.
Clearly the longstanding nature of our relationship with Josephine implies we've been extremely happy with her advice and service and we're certainly very pleased with the end result. As is usual with any home but particularly an old one, change is always happening and we will have no hesitation in calling on Josephine for her excellent assistance and we know this will be forthcoming even for the most minor of issues. We also have no hesitation in recommending her and the many services she provides.
