About me

Designing for the Future, Inspired by the Past

— The Glade Design’s passion for blending classic and contemporary design elements.

Hi there! welcome to The Glade Design, my name is Jacqueline Chen and I am the founder and interior designer of the business. I offer upscale interior design services for homes in Melbourne. With my recent experience in property styling and managing large-scale development projects, I’ve honed my skills in project management, budgeting, and designing spaces that appeal to potential buyers.

Additionally, my background in hotel event planning and leadership has equipped me with problem-solving, customer service, and communication skills that are crucial in delivering exceptional designs and customer satisfaction.

My goal as a designer is to create spaces that are both timeless and innovative, which is why I am dedicated to incorporating forward-thinking elements into my designs while still staying true to classic design principles. I believe that the past can be a great source of inspiration for the future, and that blending classic and contemporary elements can result in truly remarkable and unique spaces.

I am thrilled to have been awarded the Best of Houzz Service Award for 2023. Our dedication to designing beautiful and functional spaces is evident in the prominent features of our work on Houzz and award-winning blogs. Trending suppliers have proudly showcased our work, proving our commitment to quality, creativity, and attention to detail.

Design Approach

Your Culture, Our Design

–The Glade Design’s partnership in creating spaces that blend your culture with our design

Colour theory is more than just a visual art – it’s a science. At The Glade, we don’t just slap some colours on the walls and call it a day. We have a deep understanding of the energy and psychology behind colours and how they can impact a space. We are passionate about exploring different cultural influences and weaving them into our designs to create spaces that tell a unique story. With a keen understanding of various design styles, we continuously push ourselves to try new things and never settle for the ordinary.

Our designs are not just about looking pretty – we want to create spaces that have soul and tell a story. We’re experts in space planning, coming up with floor plans that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing, and we always keep passive design principles in mind to help reduce energy costs. We know where to spend money and where to save without sacrificing style, so you can trust us to create a space that reflects your unique culture and style.
