My Beautiful Abode is an interior design and styling consultancy focused on helping people to make their homes beautiful, inviting spaces.

Key elements for a well resolved interior include how your home feels, looks and is used.  Our designing philosophy is to ensure each room is a practical and attractive space that utilises its unique features together with our client’s belongings and style.

Based in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, we work closely with a diverse range of clients to transform houses into beautiful homes. Our clients include architects, builders, owner-builders, renovators and home owners, and our Design and Styling Menu provide a flexible array of options, from a full design service, or simply to clarify directions and support confident decision making during a potentially difficult time.

For over two decades, Sophie Kost, Director and Lead Designer of My Beautiful Abode has designed and styled interiors across Melbourne and rural Victoria. Sophie has a well rounded career and extensive experience, with skills honed in CAD (Computer Aided Drafting), high end sofa sales and working with fabrics in both retail and wholesale roles. Sophie held a frontline role in a leading interior decorator business in Armadale for eight years before drawing these experiences together in 2011 to form her interior design and styling consultancy.


A message from Director and Lead Interior Designer Sophie:
“Interior designers are engaged for our sense of style, our ability to express creative ideas, as well as our expertise and experience. Our professional service is an investment in the planning of improvements to what is often your most valuable asset. It is our job to guide you, the client, to satisfactory solutions in the journey of making a house your home.

Your home is an opportunity to let people know more about you. A lot of our clients are simply too busy to research and source the selections for their interiors. Many people are concerned about making expensive mistakes.  We also have many clients who really just aren’t that interested in interior design- that’s ok because we are! Please contact us to see how we’ve helped our clients reach their vision, to live in a space that reflects their successes and ambition, their lives and their loves. We’d love the opportunity to do the same for you- give us a call or email.”
