Nomination for International Design Award 2019!

We are happy to announce that our project for Meraki Aesthetics have been included in the international design awards for 2019!  This has been one of our favourite projects to be a part of and am truly honoured for the nomination.



At HELLOCHARLIE, great interior design is our business and our passion. We believe that a house becomes a home when it’s personalised — your space should show off your taste and personality, work with your lifestyle, and maybe make your guests a little jealous. We know that creating a home interior that does all these things isn’t easy, and we’re here to help.

We are equally proud of the impact we have on our corporate and retail clients' business where we are talented at translating a brand identity across the interior of their space.  The benefit of ergonomic, efficient and happy spaces translates to productivity, organisational culture and employee well-being. In simple terms spaces affect people and their behaviour, this fascinate us.

​Our talented designers bring 22 years of experience to the table, or whichever furniture piece we’re sitting near. From discovering your personal style to knocking down that wall that’s been preventing the open concept living area you’ve been lusting after, we’ll make sure that your space isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but also a reflection of you.

"Hello Charlie has been doing outstanding work for our company The Reader for over 3 years now. Not only is his quality of work exceptional but his ideas and interior design experience is pin point. Hello Charlie is a life saver when opening stores under pressure!"

David Barker, Operations Manager, The Reader

I worked closely with Wouter, founder of Hello Charlie, for months during June - October 2018.
With his leadership and experience we managed to transform an dimly lit shop unit into a welcoming aesthetics salon, which has since been featured in House & Leisure Online and Visi Online. Wouter is on top of "what's hot" in the industry and is able to blend it with classic, practical pieces.
