About Tonya Scheiwe :
Style Elements’ creative genius Tonya Scheiwe loves building, renovating and design. For more than 15 years Tonya has teamed with her husband Stu, to build and renovating homes in South East Queensland.
Tonya loves turning a renovator’s delight into a beautiful home for someone to live in. Tonya’s work has been featured in Queensland Homes, Kitchen and Renovation, and Living Now Magazines.
In 2015, Tonya was invited by Queensland homes to design two rooms in the “Rooms of Inspiration” section of the HIA Home show. Tonya believes design should be accessible to everyone and a fun and rewarding experience.
Since meeting while working in Spain, Stu and Tonya have enjoyed travelling the world and immersing themselves in different cultures. These experiences help Tonya channel your style into creative genius to realise your vision.
Tonya is a firm believer in community and giving back. Tonya believes in contributing to the community and volunteers for a number of organisations including Queensland Interior Decorators Association (QIDA) www.qida.com.au and is a foster carer for the Fresh Start Rescue. Currently Tonya, Stu and their fur baby, Cooper (rescued from a puppy factory), are hosting a German Shepard called Ziggy and a Alaskan Malamute x called Jake, and derive great pleasure from helping animals in need.
The family frequents local businesses and love soaking up the style of cafes and restaurants. Tonya enjoys the inspiration these outings offer her work.
Whether managing commercial projects from conception to completion, renovating a house, picking out a fabric or helping my neighbour style her little boy’s room, Tonya’s biggest reward is when they tell hershe has “realised their vision for the space”.
