"I've previously worked with Spiroula at an architectural firm and recently as an independent contractor under FOS Collective. She's very professional and pleasant to work with, and I value her extensive industry knowledge.

Throughout the process of working together, Spiroula has been a great listener and problem solver ensuring clear communication and extreme transparency, even when working remotely together. She ensures I am always up to date with any correspondence that concerns me and touches base with me to keep me in the loop. I have learnt a lot working alongside Spiroula both as a colleague and for her business FOS Collective.

During our time working together, Spiroula has given significant input and direction to ensure the quality and high standard we aim for in our documentation was consistent through high quality detailing for manufacture and accurately capturing design intent.

I always feel motivated and supported when working with her, and I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs interior design services, collaboration or an industry professional mentor."

Mia, Interior Designer - Colleague, Contractor & Mentee

"Spiroula lives and breathes interior design and architecture. She has a natural flair for designing functional and aesthetic spaces and can communicate her ideas very effectively.

I value her vast experience in the industry and her ability to think on her feet and quickly make effective decisions.

Spiroula is dynamic, energetic and innovative and so easy to work with. She has become a breath of fresh air to my project and absolutely invaluable!"

Amy - Mosman Client

"I thoroughly enjoy dealing with Spiroula at FOS Collective. She’s friendly, engaged and very professional. Her experience and connections in the industry help her come up with the best solutions for her clients.

As a supplier I value quick replies and efficient ways of working and at FOS Collective I’ve definitely been met with both! Really looking forward to working together more in the future"

Rebecca - CDK Stone Supplier

"I began working with Spiroula around six months ago when I asked for her assistance to design custom furniture for palliative care hospices. Spiroula had exceptional ideas and really brought innovation and creativity to the role in a way that was far beyond what I expected.

As a charity working with hospices we hit some road blocks and Sprioula was able to pivot with us to provide advice about soft furnishings that would make a hospice room feel more like a home than a hospital. Her ideas were creative and we definitely could not have achieved our aims without her input.

I love Spiroula's passion and enthusiasm for our project. Her responses are always timely and her ideas are exceptional. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an interior designer."

Rachel - Derek's Place Client

"Spiroula Stathakis, of FOS COLLECTIVE has been a client of mine for the past three years. During that time Spiroula has transitioned from working for a large construction & design company to now running her own independent design practice.

In both scenarios, Spiroula was and is highly professional in her dealings with my company, as a supplier. Her finished projects are both inspirational and aspirational, due to her eye for detail, her design flair and ability to be across market trends.

It is always pleasure working with Spiroula on new projects. I would have no hesitation in engaging her to design my home."

Leonnie, Polytec - Supplier

"I came to Australia after working 14 successful years in the international market as an Interior Architect, primarily based in Dubai and the USA. I was fortunate enough to have collaborated with Spiroula of FOS COLLECTIVE as an independent design consultant/contractor on a few projects and must say that she has been instrumental in helping me familiarize myself with Australian clients, contractors & suppliers.

Spiroula has been a great mentor and my conversations with her have always been very inspiring. She is very knowledgeable and guided me to push through different business related situations and given honest feedback which is why I truly value her advice. Spiroula is an incredible listener. Every discussion we've had has been delightful and Spiroula has always effectively communicated innovative insights and understood my perspective. Spiroula has always been accessible and has gone over & beyond to give advice, discuss issues and provide support. She shared so much from her experience, resources and assistance which helped me network & find local resources while working in the market.

I really value our professional relationship and look forward to continuing to work together in the future."

"5 star service from Spiroula at FOS Collective.

Exceptional communication and design creativity, helping us along the whole journey of redesigning our jewellery store.

Fully rendered drawings, design boards and samples were provided along the way, so we knew exactly what we were getting. Making changes and amending the designs were never a problem and she was more than happy to help in anyway she could.

Her attention to detail and care with picking design elements to suit our needs were extremley helpful, we couldn't have designed such a beautiful shop fitout without her."

She made the house into a home and connected the colours of the vanities to the paint stone top and taps to a tee all flowing together with wardrobes carpet and even lights.

She put endless time and effort into making What we wanted become reality and all at a price that was affordable. Wouldn’t change fos collective for anyone else. Highly recommended"
