We appreciate each and every one of our clients & here are just a few of our testimonials we have received at Petronella's Interior Design
RSM Law Timaru
We recently engaged Petronellas Interior Design to assist us with a major renovation of our office in Timaru.
We set a challenging brief in that we wanted to modernise our building inside and out while maintaining the traditional feel of the building and the history that our firm has built up over the last 140 years.
Ineke Winkelman of Petronellas Interior Design really listened to our views and understood what we were trying to achieve. She maintained her involvement throughout the whole project, liaising with and monitoring the tradespeople involved in the project and ensuring that our vision was executed to a high standard. We felt like she really cared and was with
us every step of the way. We trusted her knowledge and experience and are so pleased that we did. We are extremely happy with the look and feel of our office and have received many positive comments from clients and other visitors to our office. We would not hesitate in recommending Ineke Winkelman of Petronellas Interior Design as an exceptionally talented interior designer who is able to manage large scale commercial projects such as ours with ease.
Waimate Property Holdings Limited
I have much pleasure in writing a reference for Ineke Winkleman from Petronellas Interior Design for any work that is being undertaken.
One of my projects was to transform the former Waimate Hotel into a restaurant, and I was fortunate to be introduced to Ineke at the exterior decorating stage.
Ineke’s ideas and advice was invaluable to help me transform this tired old building into a modern style but still retain and highlight the heritage value.
We then moved onto the interior and Ineke would put in a lot of time and effort after hours researching anything I asked for, including wallpapers, hand basins, taps, tiles, lights, furnishings and more to ensure they blended cohesively.
The next project was to transform the former ANZ into a bakery which Ineke was immediately employed once again to give us her design influence.
I have also employed Ineke on new houses and have found Ineke to be adaptable to different client’s design and colour palettes.
I found Ineke to always be very professional and courteous, and with the experience I have had on these projects I would strongly and confidently recommend Ineke from Petronellas Interior Design for any project.

Ineke and her team helped us with multiple aspects of our character home in Richmond Hill, Christchurch. We started our building process while living overseas before Covid-19. We desired a modern take on a traditional New Zealand villa. Ineke immediately understood our vision and got to work. We worked with Ineke remotely on the overall feel of our house along with the kitchen and joinery design. Ineke was wonderfully responsive and mailed multiple samples to us in the US and worked with our time difference to do Zoom calls. With the arrival of Covid, the situation became even more complex, and Ineke stepped up to ensure our design progressed despite our inability to travel to New Zealand. She liaised with (and chased) our builder, architect, and landscape architect to ensure a seamless flow with our house.
Ineke’s brief continued to expand as we spent more time with her. In the end, she was involved in our overall colour scheme, tile selection, hardware, decorative paneling, lighting, drapes/shutters, and furniture. There isn’t a room in our wonderful house that Ineke hasn’t touched.
We couldn’t have achieved what we did without Ineke, and we would use her again for future projects without hesitation. I would highly recommend her for your project.
