About us

Inside-Out Design is a full-service design firm located in Merivale, Christchurch. Formed by brother and sister Ben McMaster and Jane Rennie, Inside-Out Design offers services from Landscape Design, Interior Design, and Architectural Design (coming soon). This allows clients a complete or tailored use of our services. With awards and accolades accumulated throughout each of Ben and Jane’s careers, Inside-Out Design since its beginnings in 1990 is focused on offering sophisticated and bespoke solutions.


The inside of Inside-Out Design, is led by Jane Rennie (right) who began her career in England studying a Diploma of Interior Design at Inchbald School of Design. Stemming from this education, an affinity for using a mixture of enduring materials, textures, and complementary colours, has long developed throughout her careers in her interiors. This consequentially has enabled her design solutions to offer contemporary yet timeless outcomes.

If the essence of the client is encapsulated within the design,
“we have done as promised”.
