Last week, Karina sat down on our amazing white leather chesterfield lounge with the one and only Jenelle Knight from Sassi Australia to find out more about the style savvy business owner who is helping Gladstone locals create spaces they love to live in.
Jenelle Knight owner of Sassi Australia, stylist and mother wears a lot of hats, but what you may not know is that she has been interior design obsessed pretty much her whole life. So, it’s no surprise to anyone that she is immersed in the design world.
Jenelle studied Business and then Interior Design as she took on the task of working in her parent’s furniture store, Sassi at 69 Hanson Road. She learnt all she could about visual styling. Her love of arranging pretty things in-store lead to her being in high demand around the region, and now she spends her time styling spaces and helping homeowners create a space they love to live in.
Jenelle has a portfolio of styling all types of homes and properties that would impress even the Darren Palmers of the world. Teaching homeowners the principles of decorating and how to realistically achieve a beautifully decorated home is her passion.
As well as Jenelle, all of her staff at Sassi Australia are trained in how to help customers put it all together. They buy in a wide variety of pieces that give your home personality and help you match it to the room and style of the space.
Jenelle Knight said “It’s not just our business – it’s our passion! Even better – we don’t charge to assist with this advice. Our Professional Sales team know about what they are selling and are here to help our customers find the perfect pieces to make their home a space they love to be in.
We understand the local market and our speciality is helping people create amazing spaces within a budget. It’s important to spend a reasonable proportion of the budget on the pieces that will get the most use and then accessorise creatively to achieve an affordable but beautifully finished look.
Editor of Gladstone News, Karina Georgi, is a big fan of Jenelle’s work and can testify to the style help she has received, styling her home, Elevate HQ office and also has seen Jenelle transform the Port City Power basketball stadium Sky box and bar area.
Karina said “Jenelle has this super power of just making something really practical and comfortable look amazing. The thing I love is that she works on all budgets and people don’t need high-end budgets to have a space they love to be in.”
