About Us.

We create spaces that are beautiful, practical & a joy to live in. That’s the beauty of an Innate Home.

We are passionate about ensuring our clients really enjoy & connect with their building or renovation experience. We work in collaboration with our clients, building designers, architects & builders ensuring the design & the colours, materials, finishes, fixtures & fittings come together to create an harmonious & cohesive home.

Innate Home is run by Design Director, Marlo Reyneke. Marlo has over 15 years experience as an Interior Designer in the building industry & has been involved in over 600 residential projects. Innate Home works across the Mornington Peninsula & Bayside Melbourne, and our services are available to both homeowners and home builders.

What we do.

We take all the stress & uncertainty out of the selection & specifications process.

We are here to assist with the extensive range of selections within the building process. This includes items like which exterior cladding to use and which colour gutters work the best, through to selecting the perfect benchtop material to suit your style & needs as well as choosing the perfect basins & taps.

Innate Home is a client driven consultancy as we work collaboratively with our clients & their architects/designers & builders to ensure that their new home looks & feels how they had envisioned.
If an issue arises, your Innate Home consultant can solve it. Our extensive experience and knowledge of the building process enables us to ensure that construction progresses smoothly and with fewer delays. With our expert advise, you will have everything from paint colours to tapware selected before construction begins. This ensures that fittings and materials can be ordered well in advance and be ready for installation as required.

What the Client Says.

We were so happy with Marlo and the services she provided. We were initially reluctant to use an Interior Designer but that changed instantly at our first meeting. She was so accommodating and such a great communicator – we really felt as though she was invested in our project and that we were on the same page. The result was fabulous and ultimately well worth the expense, both aesthetically and also given Marlo’s ability to source the products were after at the best price. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marlo to anyone building or renovating.

Faced with the complexities of a major renovation project, one of the best decisions we made was to engage the services of Innate Home. It gave the project a professional touch needed to achieve the desired outcome. To have the guidance and advice of Marlo on style, fixtures and fittings made the process much easier.

Beacon Cove Renovation

With Marlo’s wonderful assistance I was able to confidently chose all the colours & materials for our new home & many years later I am very happy with the choices. Marlo more than met my expectations. Innate Home helped me to create the home that suited our needs with colours and designs that were practical and smart & that reflected my personality. I really felt I was part of the creative process as Marlo listened intently to my opinions and ideas and developed them with flair. Marlo was professional, yet down to earth and practical. I am still proud of my home and it is ageing gracefully.


Brighton Build

We used Innate Home and in particular, Marlo Reyneke when we built a new home in 2009. Marlo helped us with all interior colours, fittings and fixtures. Marlo was easy to communicate with and very easy to get along with, she was happy to work with our ideas and guided us towards a really brilliant outcome. We wanted and achieved a neutral palate which allowed us flexibility with soft furnishings. We felt so comfortable in the house and it always felt as though we were walking into our own little piece of heaven when we came home, any tension would disappear while walking over the threshold. I would thoroughly recommend Marlo to anyone looking for help with interior & exterior design.
