Maret’s passion for beautiful presentation has been with her since early childhood. Her talent for pageantry was gleaned from her late Mother; for whom the home and it’s appearance were celebrated among friends and family members.
She has honed her skills over the years through numerous Merchandising and Property Staging commissions in both the Retail and Real Estate sectors, as well as successfully delivering several Event Styling and Internal Design assignments.
In the Winter of 2016, Maret took her creativity into a public arena for the first time, when she participated in an exhibition of new artworks entitled “It’s Timely Too” which was held in Newcastle’s contemporary arts space The Lock-Up.
Framed by the two iconic speeches that former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam delivered in Blacktown NSW in 1972 and 1974, “It’s Timely Too” invited avant-garde artists to examine these speeches and to reflect on the ensuing cultural changes that fundamentally transformed life in Australia.
Maret’s interpretation of that time, came in her depiction of a contemporaneous Australian lounge room, which was well-received by the public and critics alike.
Maret’s Property Staging projects have featured in several upmarket print and online lifestyle publications; most notably, her work has featured in the June/July 2014 and June/July 2015 editions of Hunter Lifestyle magazine and the “House Perv” section of www.hunterhunter.com.au.
Since its inception in early 2016, Maret Larnach Styling is fast becoming one of the NSW Hunter region’s foremost Visual Merchandising, Property Staging, Event Styling and Interior Design agencies.
