Talia O'Connor is an interior designer specialising in residential interiors. Based in Dunedin, she came to interior design after a career in the International school system. Talia enjoyed her years teaching overseas, especially the travel, starting in London then onto Vienna, Zurich and Melbourne. It was while living in Melbourne that Talia could no longer ignore the pull to a career in interiors.
After moving back home to New Zealand in 2013 she opened a retail store MintSix Homewares & Styling and embarked on study in interior design. Talia imported and sold designer homewares from around the globe and also started building the design arm of her business. The retail store has subsequently closed as Talia now dedicates all of her time to interior design and sources furniture and products specific to the requirements of her clients.
She has an appreciation for a range of different aesthetics, each of which are reflected in her interior design work.
