Motivated by an artistically inclined family of visual artists, carpenters and DIY-ers, you could say Leanne comes by her affection for design quite naturally. With an inherent desire to surround herself with visually stimulating elements, it is this that drives her passion for beautifying spaces for others.
Leanne's background in education and specialization in Family Studies provides her with a deep understanding of the profound role “home” plays within the family, no matter it's shape or size. After spending time in the corporate world and daydreaming of a more satisfying life, Leanne became a certified Interior Decorator and in 2015 created Leanne Steiner - Interiors For Life.
Whether your space functions as a refuge from the world or as a bustling control centre, Leanne strives to deliver a unique definition of home (or business) for each of her clients’ individual needs and desires. Her whole-hearted personality and emphasis on personal touches makes Leanne’s evolving design style the breath of fresh air your space has been waiting for.

Do you have a favourite colour?

Can you describe yourself in three words?

If you were a piece of furniture, which would you be and why?
"Definitely a couch. They experience everything...they comfort people, bring people together, they're your best friend when you've had a rough day. They're reliable. I like that."
Can you see your finished design before you start it?

What are your thoughts on trends?
"I like to think of trends as suggestions, not demands. Design is very personal, it should reflect you. It's my job to help tell your story."
