From the purchase of her very first piece of real estate at the age of 23, Kym has had a passion for interiors and design. Since then she has bought, renovated and sold multiple properties across Ballarat, Daylesford, Melbourne. Kym’s eclectic modern styling has gained attention in the industry with several of her properties featured in Home Beautiful magazine.
After a successful corporate career, Kym relocated from Sydney to Ballarat where she was born and raised. She took the opportunity to have a complete career change and pursue her passion for all things beautiful and opened her first retail venture in Daylesford – a mecca for beautiful home-wares. In 2015 she expanded the operation to Ballarat where she also incorporated a café and nursery concept known as La Vita Emporium. La Vita was well known in Ballarat as a stylish place renowned for its ambience and access to unique and beautiful home wares and interior inspiration.
Taking onboard many requests to expand her services into a full styling business, Kym has now started Mode Property Styling to meet the needs of the growing market and to allow her to create beautiful interiors and exteriors with taste and creativity.
