About Ankie Kitsz - Kitsdesign - Interior Design Services

At the age of 21 years I completed my degree in Interior Architecture at the Design Academy in The Netherlands but didn’t take up this profession full-time until I moved to Australia, which was in early 1990’s. For the first 10 years my husband and I run ski schools in Austria and Australia. Every 6 months we travelled with approximately 20 ski instructors from ski season to ski season and established an ski instructor exchange program, which became highly successful. The interest in Design came back when some people asked help with the renovations of their ski lodges & commercial accommodation in Persiher Valley, Thredbo and later in Lake Crackenback Resort on the Alpine way.

Home by the Sea – South Coast

What was already a nice home situated to take advantage of stunning views across the ocean and boasting, a fully self-contained holiday accommodation on the ground floor, was ready for some work to realise its full potential for the owners to enjoy in their retirement.

Some well-planned redesign to renovate and upgrade key areas of the home along with clever styling and attention to detail has made this home ideally suitable for entertaining in style and comfort, to be enjoyed with family and friends for years to come.

The desired outcome to be achieved for the clients was an interior renovated to a consistent standard and quality, depicting a sophisticated Hampton’s look and feel with an air of relaxed coastal style and comfort.

The original kitchen, which was in a very good condition, didn’t fit into the new style and by increasing the footprint of the kitchen, we were able to fit in a new large island bench that maximise the capacity to host either small or larger events when entertaining, improving the functionality overall without compromising on durability or style.
