Who We Are

Rupert and Marshall are Interiors by Forma's inhouse Interior Designers.

Founded on the simple belief that good design brings quality to life.  We create emotive modern interiors that are distinguished by their warmth, originality and careful attention to detail.

Mixing contemporary and custom-designed pieces with one-of-a-kind accessories, which combine to create compelling atmospheres that are reassuringly warm and layered with visual interest. 

Our approach is client and site specific, ensuring that no two projects look or feel the same.

Melanie Marshall

I enjoy working on new builds and renovations. My portfolio includes many different styles and I love working with tonal elements and layers of texture to bring just the right personality.

With a Diploma in Interior Design and Bachelor of Business, I bring many years of experience to my role as Senior Interior Designer. I take the time to get to know you, and how you live, then adapt my ideas to help create a dream home or beautiful space for you and your family.
 
My husband, Kris, and I have two gorgeous children and 2 cats and live in a beautiful character villa that we've renovated in Cambridge. Shopping has long been a favourite hobby and I'm happiest on a warm, sunny beach during summertime. I survive the winter months by layering up in cosy clothes and catching up with girlfriends over a good bottle of wine.
 
Distance isn't an issue; I work with clients in the Waikato, Coromandel, Auckland and Northland, drawing on the unique surroundings of each home to perfect my designs. Get in touch with me for a no-obligation chat about your project.

My promise to you is: Service Plus. Having spent more than 25 years in the furniture and design business, I bring you a wealth of experience and a personal commitment to excellence in design and service.
 
I believe the process of transforming a space should be as enjoyable as the end result and I love to bring a little fun into projects. Since buying the business in 2018, I've made it my mission to focus on client relationships. I celebrate your personal style and support you to create a look that feels truly personal.
 
I've always been creative and artistic and I'm a bit of a performer and singing lights me up. I love to let my hair down and the hilarity of stage show.
 
In my work, I'm very results-focused and love working with high quality products. I've developed longstanding relationships with a huge range of suppliers and can source almost anything you might need for your project, or have it custom made.
 
I'm proud to say that many of my clients are repeat customers and I'd love to help you create a unique space that really speaks to your soul. Get in touch and let's talk it through.
