With a creative background, a love for interiors and a sound knowledge of business and marketing, Romy Dankner found her dream job when she began Homeroom Studio earlier this year.
Part interiors studio, part designers’ agency, Romy works as an interior designer for residential projects, whilst also representing a suite of established and emerging Australian homewares designers and artists. “A curated agency, we aim to increase our designers’ exposure and success by fulfilling their individual creative dreams,” explains Romy. “Whether it is exhibitions, trade shows, collaborations or overseas distributions, I am here to facilitate it all. It is an exciting new platform that is fresh and evolving.”
Representing such creatives as Maria Flores from SAY HOLA, Maurice Golotta from MSG, Laelie Berzon, Feliz, Brown Prints, Yellow Finch and Mitch Gobel; for Romy it’s not only about connecting with the designer, but also with their work. “Everyone has an inspiriting story behind their work as it is very much an expression of themselves. It is imperative that I understand and respect this and assist their message in going through the right channels.”
When not busy mentoring her designers, Romy is designing herself; working with a range of clients to create beautiful forever homes. With a passion and knack for eyeing rare furniture and a desire to create spaces that reflect and house these exceptional finds, Romy provides a very personal and affordable service. “Assisting clients with their design needs is very much about primarily understanding who they are, who lives there, what they love to do and what their home means to them. Together, we run through their ultimate wish-list. From there, we ascertain priority areas to tackle first as well as budgets. And then I hit the ground running, pulling together a concept perfect for them!”
