Bronnie Masefau is a working mum, the wife of a preacher and the author of a best-selling home-making book. She works for clients along Australia’s Eastern Seaboard, and identifies as more of a homemaker rather than an interior designer.
Bronnie is an enthusiastic and eternally optimistic designer, reflecting the need to embrace family life at every opportunity.
‘Home should be a sanctuary’ she says, ‘where business and family can intertwine seamlessly.’
As a mother of three, Isaiah, Nate, and Kayziah, enjoying the family and the benefits of running a design business without stress is vital to Bronnie. The joy of coming home to a relaxing loving environment is what we all yearn for, and what Bronnie promotes through her design and inspirational advice… the entire family gathering around the kitchen table, to discuss the days events as the meal is prepared. Bronnie Masefau’s philosophy focusses on the ability to creating a backdrop for such events. It’s this enthusiasm that has led her to produce the beautiful book “Australian Vintage Living’ with pages full of inspiring images and practical advice on how you can turn a house into a home that is embraced by all.
Bronnie Masefau has been in the interior design industry for most of her life. Her family owned and ran a furniture manufacturing business and Bronnie headed the design department. She opened a design store, Sho Interiors, in Brisbane in 2001. Her first book is Australian Vintage Living, and more will be added to the library in the very near future. Along with authoring and designing the next editions, Bronnie is also working on developing a pilot television show, based around her family values and philosophies. Bronnie and her family now live in Melbourne, where she works from her studio, enjoying watching her family thrive, accessing unique items for her exclusive clients, and being in the centre of design culture.
