When no ‘off the shelf’ solution fits your criteria, why not get exactly what you want?

My hand crafted feature walls are unique - customised and tailored to your specific requirements, theme, colours and style. Whether you prefer pattern, illustration or words, or a combination of all three, my mission is to give you something authentic that will give you joy every time you look at it.


When cooking is a passion, and time spent in the kitchen with friends and family gives you great joy, you're not going to settle for a 'beige' kitchen. Express yourself with a bespoke splashback artwork customised your unique interests.



“Ela’s art work is exquisite. 

We met her at the 2017 Auckland Homeshow while looking for decorating ideas for a new bed and breakfast in Maraetai. Ela’s gorgeous samples stood out in the small space she had. 

As soon as we had walls in our b&b gibbed, Ela popped over and discussed options for painting on one wall. 
She emailed through a couple of ideas for us to consider, and as soon as the unit was ready she completely transformed our space for us. We were left with the most unique amazing feature wall that pulled together all our colours and had everyone who walked into the unit saying ‘wow’!

I would absolutely recommend Ela Purnell Design to anyone who wants to transform a room or a house into something unique and fantastic. Our result was well worth the money we spent. I’m now considering which wall in my own house to get Ela to paint.”

"Wow" is the first word people say as they enter the room Ela has decorated with her beautiful handwritten typography! 
Ela has transformed a modern functional room into a welcoming and thought-provoking space, where perspective is challenged.
We are so very grateful for her passion, collaboration, professionalism and skill coupled with a friendly and approachable manner. 
We would highly recommend Ela to anyone!"
