Carly Dibble, founder of Meraki Home Design, based in Brisbane, is an interior stylist who has a total willingness to invest in her end goal. She is a creative force in the industry and works closely with her clients to create ideas and styles that evoke emotion, stretching style parameters for residential clients who want something new, fresh yet warmly familiar.

The Business of Interior Styling and Property Styling has achieved incredible growth in Australia. People are becoming more particular about the way their home or office is decorated. It’s not just about being practical and spacious. Meraki means love, soul and creativity. Each of her designs break free from homogeny to create a spontaneous and adventurous masterpiece with splashes of edginess. Carly encourages colourful foundations and likes to ‘build up’ with dramatic powerful colours, patterns or textures.

‘Meraki Home Design has garnered significant attention and success, largely due to Carly’s ability to widely adapt to client briefs. “I like to have fun with my clients and give them the confidence to experiment with colour and design. My imagination is boundless and really enjoy when my clients give me the freedom to create something truly unique,” said Carly.

Carly’s talent has always been visible, her devotion to design made her walk the streets of the valley, knocking on the showroom doors for a job. “I was 19 at the time and no one wanted to give me a chance. I ended up in the fashion industry working for a large department store and worked my way up to management,” she said. She later returned to university to study a business degree in international business and marketing. Carly secured the role as an assistant buyer for a homewares company. Having been introduced to a property stager, Carly knew she wanted to re-enter the design industry, and at age 30, was ready to launch Meraki Home Design.
