Project management and/or building is his passion!
Verity understood intuitively what I was looking for and came back with some fantastic drawings which really answered the brief. The design we chose had the 'wow' I wanted. Verity took care of everything and made the entire process completely painless; in fact, it was fun collaborating with her. The tradesmen she brought in were all courteous, professional and good at their respective jobs. My project was finished very quickly and within budget.
I was thrilled with the end result. To me our new, improved living room represents the perfect blend of creativity and practicality, and I think that is a reflection of its designer Verity, whose impeccable style and vision never come at the expense of pragmatic constraints. With this one smallish project, Styles and Virtue have added considerable value and beauty to our home. I'd happily recommend them to anyone.

Styles and Virtue recently completed a renovation of our Federation home, which included a new kitchen and butler’s pantry, living area, powder-room and outdoor entertaining area including a fireplace. They also built a brand new three-car garage with a self-contained studio apartment on top.
We are thrilled with the quality. The stages of construction were completed on time and within expected budget. Nick is patient and a great communicator. Verity provided great guidance on the interiors and stying – respectful of our budget and the practicalities of creating a home that is liveable while still being stylish.
We lived through the renovation but there was very little stress due to the fact that Nick and his team had predictable timelines, great communication and were respectful of our home and of our neighbours.
We would recommend Styles and Virtue to our friends and family and hope we’ll be able to bring them back in the future for “stage 3”!

Styles and Virtue delivered a great result. We couldn’t be happier. From a technical perspective the build was exceptional and errors from previous renovations were completely rectified. The team worked collaboratively and efficiently with us, delivering on time and with excellent interior options. Verity is very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to ensure we not only love the finished product but everything fits our lifestyle.
Costs were approved in advance and despite our family living overseas the whole experience was seamless and worry free. One of the most pleasing elements of our renovation was the attention to detail.
We would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them in the future.

A short time later we invited Nick to renovate an apartment at Edgecliff which was to become our new home. The work was more comprehensive than Rose Bay and involved a new kitchen, two new bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, new electrical wiring, carpet laying and painting. Once again the job was completed on time and to our entire satisfaction.
We found Nick's sub-contractors to be competent, reliable and pleasant to deal with.
Finally a number of residents in our Edgecliff building volunteered their comments that Nick and his team were considerate of others in the building when using the lift, removing rubble and using electric drills.
It is a pleasure to recommend his services."
I will also note that all the work was done while i was living outside of the country so it was great to have someone I could trust to deliver and was effective at communicating the progress and ask questions prior to proceeding with work."
Nick has taken a genuine interest in the projects and has provided insights on the finer details of construction which led to the "wow" factor. He has a great team of tradies who are polite and who are quality craftsmen.
Styles and Virtue that if there is an issue, it will be discussed and if there is a better way of Nick will raise it and that he will recommend a better option if there is one.
The renovations have been seamless and the
Styles and Virtue are more than just builders – they are partners.
