“Elissa, Darren, David and the rest of the team were all an absolute pleasure to deal with from the start of the process all the way to completion. They interpreted our ideas and tastes and worked hard to understand what we wanted to achieve and took our new build to where we wanted it to be.

“Kim was absolutely fantastic at helping us make design decisions for our home. She took the time to understand the look and style we were hoping to achieve and guided us through the process of choosing paint colours, tiles, carpets, floorboards and much more. We were very overwhelmed with the process as we had never been through it before and Kim was so patient, understanding and helpful with offering advice when she could see we were struggling to make a decision. We could not be happier with the final product of our house and will always be thankful for Kim’s guidance. We would highly recommend Kim Black Design to anyone.” – Lisa Parsons

“After taking a leap of faith and downsizing from a large house to an inner city apartment, I felt daunted by the prospect of creating a space that reflected my personality. I was extremely lucky to have engaged Gary Hamer Interior Design to support and guide me in my decision making process. Gary was always responsive, reliable and innovative with his design recommendations. Moreover he listened to what I was saying. I am incredibly happy with the style, layout and colour solutions chosen for the flooring, kitchen cabinetry and furnishings. They are innovative, stylish and within budget. I can without hesitation recommend Gary; he is a gentleman who possesses integrity, demonstrates a very high level of professionalism and attention to detail, and has an incredible work ethic.” – Neda Nikolovski
