Gwyntie Van Tuyl Weswick

OWNER & PRINCIPAL INTERIOR DESIGNER


Lover of cheese, being in water and dreaming big.

Living on the Sunshine Coast is paradise! Although always focused on the task at hand, I am constantly on alert for striking architecture and design inspiration. I am also fascinated by human behaviour. At work, I can be found pacing the floor during phone calls, usually barefoot. I am ambitious, considerate and an on-point gift giver. On my days off, you can find me creating pottery, planning my next trip, or enjoying a hot cup of tea while snuggling with my husband.

Morgan

Morgan Seeber

ASSOCIATE INTERIOR DESIGNER


Lover of vinyl records, books and cold chocolate.

While at work you will often hear me singing a tune about the task at hand while I focused on a project’s details. Funny enough, my colleagues say I’m the wittiest team member. I love geometrics, have a great sense of humour and make all tasks look like a piece of cake! During my time off, you can find me spending time with my husband and two adorable children. Fun fact: my husband has the same first name as me… and the last! We’re Morgan Seeber and Morgan Seeber.

Natalie Chell

DESIGN COORDINATOR


Lover of quiet early mornings combined with strong coffee.

I am always on board to learn new things about design and I take great pride in keeping the Emerge studio organized. Clients and colleagues say I am the calm and collected one and will surely win anyone over with my wonderful smile!

When 3pm rolls around, my sweet tooth and need for a second coffee kicks in so I make sure to answer the call for myself and my coworkers. On my days off, you can find me with my muffin-loving son or spending an embarrassing amount of time on home blogs, surfing Etsy and finding new furniture trends. Oh, and did I mention my favourite colour is pink?

Jenna Fouillard

DESIGN COORDINATOR


Lover of savory treats, the serenity that comes with writing and a good “shinrin-yoku”.

At work or home, my morning routine starts with more cream than usual in a cup of coffee. I am spirited, determined, and optimistic. I take pride in my fashion sense, which typically leaves me just enough time to throw my hair in a ponytail. I have a strong moral compass and try to keep everyone smiling. My summers are spent soaking up the sun on the beach or boat. During the winter, I enjoy relaxing and catching up on my favorite TV series. Weekends, you will find me immersed in the company of friends and family, feet up with a glass of wine in hand.
