About Us

The Waitaki Interiors Team

Interior Designer Sherry Howard has teamed up with husband Matt to create Waitaki Interiors, a homewares and gift store which offers a full Interior Design service. 

With a passion for Interior Design and a desire to create perfection, Sherry and Matt embarked on a brave new venture in November 2013 in the Waitaki District. 

Being Matt's hometown and having his family here meant Oamaru was the obvious choice, while the stunning town and rugged beauty of the region alongside its growing popularity means the Waitaki District was the perfect choice.

"Our dream is to bring happiness, harmony and contentment to the homes of our clients by offering outstanding service, quality home furnishings and advice. If you arrive home at the end of the day and you feel happy about walking through the door, then we have accomplished our goal"

Arising from a minor obsession with paint colours and soft furnishings, Sherry studied at Christchurch Polytechnic and graduated top of the class in 2010 receiving the “Award of Excellence” prize from her tutors. She has been perfecting her skills and specialising predominantly in window furnishings and colour schemes.

A note from Sherry “I believe in the importance of building close relationships with my clients.  Interior Design is entirely personal, the better the understanding I have of who my clients are; the easier it is to help them achieve a home which reflects their own style and personality”

Another member of our team is Tania. She has always had a passion for gorgeous interiors and has worked as an interior designer for many years, recently moving from Queenstown where she worked for McKenzie and Willis. Tania is also a qualified colour specialist with five years experience from Resene Paints. With her knowledge, she is confident that she can help you create beautiful spaces in your home.
