Leaders of their trade.. the all woman crew at elegance home decorating.

All girl painting crew I hear you ask? It’s true, and it’s a tight crew. Sometimes you just need a woman’s touch, and that’s exactly what Halie decided to create 4 years ago when Elegance Home Decorating was born.

Halie is a local mum of 3 amazing girls here in Oakura, and battled with shift work for years while trying to raise three epic young women. She realised that it just wasn’t working for her family, and after a friend asked her to come and help her paint her house, she found her calling. Halie has always had a passion for interiors and design and after doing multiple Reno’s on farm houses it seemed a natural path for her to take. From there the business took off, and she has managed to find her difference in the market by providing top quality skill and delivering exactly what is asked, every time, in an industry that is dominated by men.

Halie runs the business from her home here in Oakura and she has two amazing women in her team. She focusses on the little details that are so often missed by big companies- She’s always available on site and is always up for a chat; achieving what her client wants is her highest priority. Haile and her team certainly are not afraid of a bit of hard work, she says a bit of ‘elbow grease’ goes a long way, and prep is key for a flawless finish.

Halie and her team have completed some amazing transformations in their time, just check out her social media for some of her incredible before and after shots. Her biggest challenge is something she can’t  control; Mother Nature. Booking an exterior to paint and having a week of rain can really affect her timeframes, but she said her clients are very understanding because her communication is so strong. ‘All it takes is an email or phone call to let them know if there will be delays and they are totally fine, we make sure we keep in touch throughout the process so there is no confusion’.


Halie’s goal is to continue to grow her all girl crew and her business so she can keep up with the huge demand for her work. She uses resene paints and sources the most spectacular wallpapers from around the globe to get the perfect look for any space.

The reason we love this small business is because we have used her ourselves and know how good she really is. I have personally used her to paint my ceilings (the worst job EVER) and the process was flawless, something that I really value in a tradie.
