Meet Nat...


Natalie Milan is just one of our very talented interior designers. Nat manages our studio in Thebarton...


Tell us a little about your background in the industry? I completed my Diploma of Interior Decoration and Design in 2003. In 2005 I travelled to London to further my career in Interior Design, working for a prestigious Kitchen company in Knightsbridge and then spending the remaining two years of my stay, working as an Interior Designer for a company which specialized in Hotel Interiors for prestigious chains such as Shangri-La, Hyatt, Marriott and Hilton. On my return to Australia in 2009, I gained great knowledge in the commercial and residential building market in Adelaide, working for Beaumont Tiles for 6.5 years in both the design space and sales before I was appointed to Gallerie Manager for ACS.

How long have you been with the company? I have been the lady on ground assisting as the project manager on-site until we opened our doors here in Adelaide. It’s been a great experience is continuing to be an exciting and rewarding role as we build our foundation into the Adelaide market. My main role is to liaise with our builders, suppliers and builders clients assisting them with their needs and providing builders clients with the best possible selection experience.

Have you seen changes in what customer’s expect of the building industry? Customers are more educated on building materials and the industry, now than ever before with the assistance of shows like The Block, House Rules as well as social media i.e. Pinterest and Instagram. Everything is more readily available at their fingertips. Long gone are the days when a client would walk through the door without a single idea of what colour scheme or of a design look they are trying to achieve. They expect their builders to also be up to date with the latest products and trends.

What advice do you have for builders work with ACS? How do you get the most out of working with us? The ACS Model will save you time as well as money, our software makes the admin process simplified, so that you have more time to build and sell whilst, being part of the buying group will provide you with the best possible pricing to be competitive in the market place. Gallerie is an extension of your business and has been designed to inspire your clients and provide them with the confidence in making the right decisions through the selection process with the help of our qualified interior designers.
