About us


Interior Designer Michelle Leslie has been designing interior spaces in some of the world’s most coveted destinations for over a decade. She nurtures an immense passion for creating spaces people can create and share memories in, working closely with clients and local artisans to build extraordinary interiors where narrative and exceptional beauty are central.

Recognised as one of the world’s leading interior architects, Michelle’s latest restaurant ‘Saddles’ was awarded the prestigious Conde Nast Traveller Most Beautiful Restaurant in the World 2019 and is one of the most sought after culinary destinations in Australia.

Michelle’s transformation of ‘Pretty Beach House’ has been awarded the 2018 Conde Nast Traveller Gold List as one of the Luxury Lodges of Australia and was the 2018 Luxury Travel Winner. The resort is currently booked out until 2022.

Michelle Leslie Studio offers a full design service — from brief establishment to practical completion and client delivery. Michelle is engaged from the initial planning stages of a project and is often involved in procurement of the perfect property ensuring that its subsequent interior architectural intervention is comprehensive, cohesive and highly personalised. Aiming to provide a seamless journey throughout, the studio pride’s itself on its exceptionally high level of customer service and meticulously detailed execution. Unwavering individuality and a commitment to hunt for rare curiosities ensure that the outcome for each client represents functionality, tactility, luxury, emotional connection and an aesthetically pleasing conclusion to every project.

“Every moment in life is unique. Every interior is unique, that’s what makes the process of creating spaces so special to me.

As designers, we place a lot of importance on ensuring that the delivery & experience of each space is perfect, even designing the negative space into an environment is important. The first part of the process is to sit and and work with the blank canvas. Experience the empty space, and start to visualize the people who are going to share moments, make memories in & inhabit the space….. I create from there.

Nothing makes me happier than being on site with my building team, and working on the details of our project, then seeing it all come to life”
