Lauren Li founded Sisällä Interior Design in 2010, since inception the business has grown significantly. Her husband Phil joined the business in 2016 as studio manager, enabling them to grow into something more. We believe that a home should be filled with good vibes. Beautiful spaces that are full of atmosphere, and that evoke emotion, are at the core of what we do.

At Sisällä we are over-sharers! We are happy to share the sources we use in our interior design projects, so we created an immersive space called Apartment; where we bring together a carefully curated selection of locally made designs, artwork and iconic pieces.  Hopefully our favourites will be your new favourites too! The Apartment is complete with a living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway and entry, all filled with handpicked pieces that is completely shoppable. If you can’t experience the Apartment in person, we have shared a selection of these pieces online, just to be fair.

We also love to share our knowledge from 15 years in the interior design industry. Prior to founding Sisällä, Lauren worked across the leading architectural practices in Melbourne, to high-end projects in London, and she knows what it’s really like to work in the interior design industry. Teaching interior design for a number of years sparked a passion to share. We now run Sessions in the Apartment in a fun relaxed environment. With gözleme and wine!

We are open by appointment only, with a few open days coming up. Shoot us an email to stay in touch!
