Hello, I’m Verity Coonan, and my mother says I was born to create.

Hello, I’m Verity Coonan, and my mother says I was born to create.

Growing up in Darwin, I was given free reign and enormous encouragement to experiment with colour in every aspect of my life—from my hair to my bedroom walls.

That passion stayed with me and propelled me to enrol in an Interior Design & Technology course on the Gold Coast in Queensland where I studied for 2 years, before coming home to Darwin.

I spent the next three years as City Ceramics’ in-house interior designer, working on an average of three houses a week and advising on everything from tiles and walls to the colour of kitchen cupboards.

But I was desperate to be more hands-on and apply the interior design skills I’d learnt, and so the idea of Vdesigned was born in 2009.

My strength, drive and enormous success comes from my loving partner Josh, he believed in me and my designs so much that I believe in myself, and the amazing direction my business is heading.
