Building Dreams Group

Meet Marlo Reyneke of Innate Home.

As the Mornington Peninsula enters our second COVID-19 lockdown, it is more important than ever that we maintain the sense of connection our local community is famous for! This is where ‘Behind the Dreams’ comes in. We’ll be meeting our vibrant, local building and design industry professionals for 10 fun, quick-fire questions.

First up, meet Marlo Reyneke, Director of a Red Hill interior design studio, Innate Home.

Tell us about you! What brought you to the Mornington Peninsula?

Marlo: A tree/sea change 7 years ago & have not had a second of regret!

How do you like to live?

Marlo: Simply!! I love being home, in my space. I love entertaining friends. And I have a secret obsession with reality talent shows….The Voice, Aus Idol etc!!

What’s the highlight of your working week?

Marlo: Client presentations – where I get to show the client what I am proposing for their dream home. It’s the BEST!

Describe your business in 20 words 😉, no more!

Marlo: Innate Home creates spaces that are beautiful, practical & a joy to live in.

What do you do on a Saturday?

Marlo: Cold water swim, coffee, bit of pottering around the house, maybe a family bush walk & cook dinner together.

What’s your favourite house or garden trend at the moment?

Marlo: Indoor plants!!!!! Particularly during iso!!

Your proudest business moment?

Marlo: I have lots, every time I receive a message from a client telling me how much they love their finished home.

What do you secretly wish clients knew?

Marlo: How long good design & well considered selections actually takes.

If you were a house… which one would you be? And why?

Marlo: Goodness, that is tough one! I would be the casual beach shack holiday house, where everyone just instantly feels relaxed, feels the weight of their every day lives just melt away

Thank you Marlo for sharing a bit about yourself with our Building Dreams community!
