"A home should be a sanctuary –
one that provides joy, peace & happiness.
It should embody your own
unique style that is both practical
& luxurious while being reflective of
the lives of the people living there."
Founder and Principle Designer
Linda Hamilton has been in the design industry for 18 years and specialises in an organic approach to Interior Design to create spaces that delight and nurture the senses. Born in Ireland, Linda grew up travelling Europe and her years abroad have heavily influenced her design style, yet she has defined and adapted those premises to suit our Australian lifestyle. After earning a degree in Art History from Trinity College Dublin, Linda moved to Australia in 1992 and thus Urban Edge was born. Linda has a sharp eye for colour and tone, with the incredible ability to pair the most unique design elements with a practical lifestyle, in turn creating living spaces like no other. Often found ahead of the design trend, Linda’s ever evolving style is always underpinned by a subtle contemporary classicism with the use clean lines and neutral tones, while blending textures and charm to create a timeless style in either residential or commercial spaces.
Ashley Caruana was a natural compliment to Linda’s big-picture vision, growing up in a small beach town in NSW, she relocated to the Gold Coast, securing her first position in an interior design firm & going on to earn a diploma in Commercial Arts and Interior Design. With 11 years of experience in the industry, it was a chance meeting with Linda that secured Ashley a position at Urban Edge. Starting as a retail assistant, she was quickly recognised for her visual merchandising style and unique design aesthetic. During the past 7 years Linda and Ashley have built a close working relationship, combining their knowledge and strengths as an asset to their clientele.
