The Author

The author of these 12 modules discussing Residential Design is Wende Reid. Under her company name, f o r m a n d c o l o u r , Wende practices architectural, interior and furniture design and fine art consulting. She began her career in New York and now practices in Sydney.

She has been awarded twice for excellence in her designs.

During her career, she has held licensing agreements in the US and Europe, under her own trademark and for clients.

She has developed numerous best selling collections in decorative textiles, wallpaper, bed linen, rugs, lighting, dinnerware and flatware.

Her work has been featured in highly prestigious stores, residences, five star hotels, international sporting events and publications in New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, the sovereign nation of Kiribati, and five star resorts on Lizard Island, Vanuatu and Fiji.

She has been commissioned to develop designs for dignitaries and royalty.

She founded in house product development for the home furnishings at Federated Department Stores and, in the US, developed the early framework on which coordinated home furnishings collections are based, such as Ralph Lauren and Martha Stewart.

I've since gone on to start my own successful Interiors business specialising in Children's rooms and nurseries and haven't looked back since. Thanks IDI for giving me a great start to such a fantastic career in Interior Design.
