TESTIMONIALS

"We undertook the challenge of building a new 3 storey home and involved DODC as interior design consultant shortly after our DA was approved. Through a design development process DODC was able to successfully interpret the concept ideas & aesthetic we wanted for our home and turned them into a reality. Dana was able to advise, design and document everything from the exterior finishes to the scatter cushions at the end of the 2 year design & building process. Her knowledge, attention to detail and ability to clearly communicate with not only myself, but with the other consultants and tradespeople was exceptional, it helped to eliminate confusion & delays. We now thoroughly enjoy living in the spaces that Dana played such a big part in creating. We would recommend the interior design consultation services of DODC to anyone looking to undertake any refurbishment & renovations works or building a new home from scratch." G Nabarro.

"Domus Homes commenced working with Dana Orth Design Consultants in 2009 & since that time we have collaborated on many projects together, including large & small scale residential projects.
DODC has delivered immense value to all the projects we have worked on together, through a thorough, thoughtful and creative design approach. Dana has an ability to bring excitement and consideration to all projects that reflect my client’s individual aesthetics and lifestyles.
Dana’s professional approach is reflected in how she conducts herself with my clients, her knowledge of building methods and products and the finished project presentation. Her proactive manner means she produces all schemes, documentation and relevant information pertaining to a job in a timely and detailed manner.
All of these attributes not only make working together with DODC a streamline and enjoyable process, it also reflects positively on my company Domus Homes. I highly recommend Dana for her interior design and colour coordination services." David Edelstein. Domus Homes

 

 

"The goal we had for our new home was to create a unique, contemporary & architectural building. We commissioned an Architect to help us through this process and also the Interior Design services of DODC. Dana was able to successfully collaborate with the Architect and design the interiors in context with the overall architectural feel so there was a seamless link between the two. Dana worked with us closely to help create the specific interiors we wanted for our new home. Her input involved, interior space planning, furniture layouts, bathroom & kitchen designs, joinery design, lighting layouts, finishes and fixtures including timber & natural stone floor finishes, wall finishes, tiling selections, joinery finishes, light fittings, door and joinery hardware, paint colours, sanitary ware and tap ware. All the design work was thoroughly considered & the documentation of the fixtures & finishes presented in a professional and comprehensive format, which meant ease of use for ourselves, other consultants & the builders during the building process. Building a new home is a large & exciting project and Danaʼs guidance was a fundamental part in creating the home we now happily live in." L Kaiser. Coogee

 

 

"I have had the pleasure of working with Dana Orth as a fellow interior designer for the past 12 years. During which time she spent 5 years in my employ at Design Environment as a Senior Interior Designer and more recently we have collaborated together on many residential & commercial projects Danaʼs interests and passions have moulded and sharpened her expertise as an interior designer and are uniquely aligned with both the architectural aspects of space, form and finishes, as well as the decorative aspects of colour, texture and furnishings. Her skills and creativity, therefore excel equally in design, selection, specification and documentation aided by her vast knowledge of building and decorative products and materials. Her experience, together with her enthusiasm and zest in searching for the best solution to any design brief is an inspiration to fellow designers. The professional approach plus innate sense of style, taken by Dana, to any design challenge have gained her immense respect from clients and tradespeople alike." Bronwyn Wall.

"We have been working with Dana Orth as our interior design consultant for almost 6 years now, our
relationship started when we had recently finished building our new home and needed input on furniture
layouts, furniture and fabric selections, joinery items, paint colours, wallpaper and artwork.
Since then Dana has had input into craved marble signage for our home, exterior furnishings, an outdoor
kitchen area, possible conservatory extensions, exterior paint colours & we are now currently working on a
creative office space for myself. Danaʼs design approach is creative and considered, she has thoroughly listened to our needs & understood the vision we have for our home. The results are wonderful & we regularly receive positive
comments from our guests. Dana also has a great resource of suppliers & tradespeople to call upon & has managed all the work undertaken so far and its quality. We wouldnʼt hesitate to recommend Dana." M Forte. Austinmer

 

 

"DODC was an essential part of my recent renovation. Facing a daunting task of doubling the size of my
house, with 3 small children, a graphic designer friend of mine recommended Dana.
I was a bit intimidated at the thought of having an Interior Designer. Dana however was so professional,
friendly, funny and spot on from day one. I felt like she really understood where I was coming from.
Dana helped me with light fitting selections, the kitchen & bathroom layouts & finishes, internal & external
paint colours, window treatments, furniture and furniture layouts, study & joinery design, flooring finishes,
doors & windows, and my staircase.
I could ring Dana 5 times in one day, she would always greet me and patiently answer my millions of
questions. Dana would liase with the tradesmen with ease! Dana was even working on my house plans the
day after she had her gorgeous second baby, amazing!
I thought it would be totally unaffordable, however, Dana would give me a list of unique shops to go to, that
offered me discounts on her selected products, too easy!! I love my home, and Dana was a huge part of making it look so fantastic. I would gladly recommend Dana." J Dihm. Malabar
