Leah Meredith, founder of Haus of Hyde, initially launched the brand as a passion project. However, she quickly realised a product-based business wasn’t fulfilling her ‘craving for creativity’. So in 2021, she reimagined the company into what it is now, a multifaceted studio specialising in Interior Design, Brand Direction and Content Creation.
Here, the Condo founder Riley Uggla and Leah discuss Haus of Hyde and the importance of Interior Styling when making a house a home.
RU: Tell me a bit about Haus of Hyde.
LM: I launched the brand in 2015, and since then, it has evolved into the hybrid creative studio it is today. We offer innovative design services for a range of clients.
The interior side of Haus of Hyde works on various projects, including commercial builds, bespoke pieces and residential homes. We work from the initial design stage to sourcing, styling and completion.
RU: What does interior design mean to you?
LM: Interior design is the functional and operational aspect of designing a space. The design element works best at the initial stages of the project and runs alongside the build.
RU: How does interior styling differ?
LM: Alternatively, interior styling turns an area from a room into a profoundly personal environment. It is the art of curating lighting, furnishings and accessories. It enhances the space to create an overall style and feel that reflects the client’s unique preferences, for example, consulting on paint colours, designing bespoke pieces or sourcing a range of furniture and accessories.
It’s important to note while Interior Design can be functional, Interior Styling can elevate any room, no matter how big or small a space is.
