About-page

Interiors, colour and design are my passion.

Texture Tone Design is the creation of stylist Jo Carmichael, who is driven by a love of texture and colour. With over 15 years’ styling and writing experience, Jo has worked in London and Sydney for top interior magazines such as Vogue Living, Vogue Entertaining and Travel, House & Garden, British Homes & Gardens, Inside Out and Home Beautiful.

Since moving to Perth in 2011 she has launched the blog, Style and Focus, with photographer Jody D’Arcy. Highly regarded, Style and Focus features the creative people, places and businesses of Western Australia.

Jo also styles and produces boutique retail outlets and the work of some of Perth’s most prestigious architects, helping them create a lifestyle look for both their brand and the media.

While continuing to write and style for many of Australia’s leading national homes and design magazines, Jo also styles for The West Australian’s Fresh and Habitat sections.

Always in touch with current trends, Jo is often asked by clients to recreate her “magazine room schemes”. Through Texture Tone Design she works closely with each client to create a scheme that is not only classic and has a contemporary “edge”, but also reflects the homeowner’s character and realistically caters for their lifestyle.

Through her extensive experience, Jo has developed invaluable contacts with a wide range of leading artists and designers and this helps her better cater to individual interiors and tastes. She focuses on detail ensuring that the right materials, furnishings and accessories are chosen for each project and to suit all budgets.

She has a creative mind and is not afraid to rejuvenate pieces or think outside the box in creating some great solutions for any interior and space.
