Team Profiles

The team at Retreat Design are passionate about creating beautiful spaces in your home and are committed to providing you a service that is second to none.


Steve Johnson: Director

Steve is the owner of Retreat Design and has been at the helm since he commenced the business in 2007.

Steve launched Retreat Design when he saw there was a real gap in the market for beautiful kitchen and bathroom products. Steve could see that the market relied too heavily on locally made cabinetry and that home renovators and builders in WA needed the opportunity to be able to use some of the gorgeous products coming out of Europe.

Steve loves everything to do with building and design, having managed many residential projects through his career.


Kelly Finnis: Designer

Having recently graduated from Curtin University Bachelor of Arts (Interior Architecture) with Honours, Kelly has a strong focus on how people feel in spaces. She loves modern, sleek and innovative design solutions and the juxtaposition of old & new, mixing traditional & modern design elements.

Kelly assists our design team with all aspects of interior design and has proved to be an integral part of the team at Retreat Design. Kelly can assist you with her flair for designing beautiful interiors and providing excellent customer service.


Gemma Fortini: Designer

Our talented interior designer Gemma has been with us since her work experience days. Gemma graduated from Curtin University Bachelor of Arts (Interior Architecture) with Honours in 2015 and has a passion for designing modern interiors with a focus on user-centred design.
