The business and creative mind behind Adentro Design is Kelly Tuck.  Kelly originally graduated from QUT with a BBE (Architectural Studies). She worked as an architectural designer in Australia and internationally before completing a Graduate Diploma of Interior Design (with Distinction).

Kelly established Adentro Design in 2003. Since then Adentro has completed an extensive range of projects across South-East Queensland and interstate. Kelly brings together like-minded designers and collaborators to provide specialist expertise on your project.  A team that has a true desire to provide you with great service and even better outcomes.  We strive to be accessible, accountable and thorough on each and every project.

Your Asset

Whether we’re working on your home, a public space or a corporate head office, for us design is about more than just creating a beautiful space.

Your home is an extension of who you are – a place to showcase your unique story.  It’s about crafting a space with character and individuality where you can express your values, share your stories, make memories and be yourself.  A space that speaks to you and brings you joy.

Your workspace is one of your greatest assets.  It should motivate and inspire!  It has the power to increase productivity, attract and retain talented staff and promote collaboration, flexibility and innovation.  We aim to connect and transform your business space and give you a point of difference that will improve your staff retention and benefit your bottom line.

Our Partnership

Understanding your vision and long-term objectives is fundamental to ensure that we can create an environment in which you can thrive.  We are a small studio and offer personal service and thorough communication every step of the way.

We like to listen carefully and understand how you use your space now and how this may change in the future.

Through collaborative partnerships with our clients and clear communication, we guide you through the planning, design and construction process with clarity and certainty.

Your Project

Whether you require assistance with residential design or home styling or have a commercial space that you need to fit-out, we are here to help.

On commercial projects we have successfully worked with budgets ranging from $700/m2 to $2,000/m2.  It’s all part of the challenge and no matter the budget or the size of your project we pride ourselves on a quality result.  We also use our expertise to ensure that careful placement of ‘WOW factor’ elements provides you with maximum impact for minimum cost.

With a strong workplace strategy, we balance corporate requirements (such as reduced lease areas, efficient space planning and minimal churn costs) with a design that will support the individual needs of occupants and allow flexibility.  This increases productivity and in turn positively impacts your bottom line.

  • I’m delighted with Adentro’s work and, as a CEO of a large, complex organisation ‘delighted’ is not a word that I use freely. Kelly was very easy to work with. She was attentive, listened to our needs and was patient, flexible, committed and innovative. Most importantly, Adentro achieved two difficult feats. They (1) converted a drab, daggy building into a light filled, first class training/research/work facility and (2) managed the project on time and within budget.

  • We opened our new, spectacular shop to much praise from our members. Our staff too, are finding the new shop a joy to work in – a source of much pride. I wish to thank Adentro for the fine job you performed in the concept, design work and input into the project. Despite the tyranny of distance, your involvement was everything we hoped for. Congratulations on designing what we think is the best Golf shop in Australia.

  • No project can be successfully realized without significant collaboration and teamwork. This project is an outstanding example of what can be achieved when everyone involved works together.

  • Kelly worked with me on the refurbishment of our apartment at Main Beach and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would recommend Adentro to anyone that’s looking for professional Interior Design services.  Kelly added a high level of detail to the project and helped simplify the process for us. With the help of Adentro we managed to transform a tired, dated space into a stylish, contemporary apartment quickly and on budget.

  • Thank you Kelly for creating a beautiful shared space in our home that we can enjoy as a family.  I wanted to share our joy.  Kelly recently guided us with a project to transform our open plan living area – the hub of our home.  We needed guidance with interior design but also functionality.  Kelly’s unique skillset as both an interior designer and architect meant that her discerning eye saw potential I had not even considered.  She also balanced my aesthetic ‘wants’ with  the ‘needs’ of living with 2 children and brought in small details that add a special touch and uniqueness.  The bespoke cabinetry she designed was a perfect example.

  • It was an absolute pleasure working with Kelly and the team. We have a lovely office (and many compliments) thanks to you. I wish you all the best and look back fondly on our collaboration. I don’t know how I survived it all. We have often said your cheery disposition and skill helped us through it all, so thanks again.

    Chris Buckley | Director
  • We were very impressed with Kelly’s fastidious detailing.  Nothing was ever too much trouble – we really appreciated that.  We are always receiving complimentary comments on our interior.  Thanks for a great job!

    Tim Grey | Director
  • I am indecisive so Kelly’s patience and assistance was gratefully received.  Kelly is warm and personable and supported the decision making process by providing information, images and advice to assist the process.  With her expert knowledge, contacts and industry experience, I saved myself considerable time in what would have required much online research and organisation.

    Andrea Koch | Owner
  • Kelly was such a delight to work with.  She had wonderful ideas and took on board what I wanted.  I can’t recommend her enough.

    Trish Gannon | Owner
  • I have had the unique pleasure of working iwth Kelly from Adentro for over 12 months now and would not hesitate in recommending their services to anyone looking for a professional, boutique interior design service.  Kelly worked with us on the joinery detailing and finishes selections for our home.  Kelly and the team have always impressed us with their creative and unique approach to design and the high level of detail they put into every project.

    Geoff Scott | Home Owner
  • Our new office fit-out was done with the minimum of fuss and disruption and we are extremely happy with the result. We can warmly recommend Adentro Design as very professional, with the whole experience being a positive one and the outcome very much appreciated by management, staff, board and the many visitors who come into Uniting Care Queensland.

  • Kelly has worked for us for a number of years on several projects with great success.

    Kelly’s product knowledge and  attention to detail is outstanding and her willingness to go the extra mile has always been appreciated.

  • I’ve known Kelly for over 30 years and have found her not only professional, but always refreshingly upbeat and enthusiastic.  Mullarch and Adentro have collaborated successfully for almost two decades on a variety of projects from homes, to high rise apartment buildings, to commercial fit-outs.  Kelly’s willingness and ability to comprehend and deliver client’s specific design briefs, has fostered deep respect for her both as a person and a design professional.  I have no hesitation recommending Kelly and Adentro regardless of the project and budget.
