A qualified interior designer, Cara has been a practising for more than 20 years and is a Member of the Design Institute of Australia as well as a Registered Building Practitioner.
Her background includes more than a decade as a specialist retail designer, complemented by extensive experience in corporate projects and residential interiors.
A key to Cara’s success is her understanding of the complexities associated with creating brand new spaces, relocating to a different facility, or refurbishing existing premises.
“Every client is different and every project unique,” she says. “The challenge is to capture the unique personality of the client, or the particular culture of the organisation, while delivering a functional and aesthetically pleasing environment.”
That requires extensive collaboration and Cara’s projects have always been characterised by good communication and a close working relationship with her clients.
Working with her clients through the process of new projects, relocation and refurbishments, Cara recognised a need in the market for specialised transition planning – for someone who could come in and help clients negotiate their way through the maze of decisions, co-ordinate the visual approach, and ‘plugs the gaps’ in the services provided by architects, builders and fit-out specialists.
In [Re:space], Cara has created an unique design firm which responds to its clients on an individual level and creates space solutions, design concepts and visual environments which not only answer the brief, but complement their aims and help them run their business – or live their life – in a better and more enjoyable way.

“The space we inhabit in has an enormous impact on the way we live and work. Creating practical and beautiful spaces that function brilliantly for the people who live and work within them is Cara Jones’ specialty. "

Cara Jones, the photo artist, creates unique pieces of digital art for commercial and private clients. Cara is an interior designer and her company Re:Space was formed in 2003.
“Art has been a lifelong passion of mine. I work with existing images and digitally manipulate them into forms that are abstract yet recognisable,” says the Melbourne-based artist. “My artworks are printed onto all sorts of media and for clients such as Franklin I’m working with large format canvas prints.”
Beyond the corporate world Cara’s photo art has also won her a major commission from the City of Melbourne, which saw her create imagery for an 87 metre long outdoor installation.
Cara says her photo art fills a gap in the market. “From an interior design perspective, I often need to source artwork that is affordable and unique for my clients. Beyond buying art through fine art galleries or online the options are limited so I began to create my own artworks to give my clients a broader choice”.
