At The Design Gallery we offer a comprehensive interior design service in Residential and Commercial design, taking our clients from initial consultation and brief through concept and design to installation and completion of the project.

The Design Gallery, and designer Gael Butler,  have extensive experience in both commercial and residential design. We are happy to assist you with your project, be it a  residential project such as new building, renovation, kitchen & bathroom renovation or selection of window furnishings, working with architects and builders during construction of a building,  a small commercial fitout or a major commercial refurbishment.

Our Approach

At The Design Gallery, we consider the most important tool in good interior design is communication with the client. After all, it is your home,  business or project and our role is to help you achieve your goals. Understanding your needs is central to a smooth translation of your ideas and dreams into a successful interior design outcome.

The first step in building a successful partnership between your designer (us) and you is for us to sit down with you and take a detailed project brief. This is the most crucial part of working with you on your project and will ensure we thoroughly understand your desired outcomes.  To assist us in obtaining as clear an idea as possible your brief will include such things as your vision for the project, how you will use the space, your likes and dislikes in terms of colour and style and, of course, your budget.

In addition to concept planning and management, we provide a range of custom solutions for our clients including custom made furnishings and individually commissioned art works.

Furniture Selection and Layout

At The Design Gallery we take furniture selection seriously.

An important aspect of good design lies in the correct choice of quality furniture. So while your wall colours, window dressings, floor coverings and so on are crucial to a well designed space,  it will all come to nought if your furniture is outdated or simply doesn’t measure up to the rest of the decor.

We offer a complete range of interior and outdoor furniture from leading manufacturers and importers in Australia. We can design and commission custom made furniture and joinery to enhance your interior rooms or even for your outdoor spaces such as the patio or pool area.

Floor rugs and other furbishments can also be designed and manufactured especially for your interior, to your unique specifications.

Art Consultancy Service

Beautiful and poignant pieces of art or craftwork can provide that all-important finishing touch to the look and feel of any interior. Whether it’s a stunning oil painting by a significant artist or that charming hand print picture your 3 year old son brought home from Kindergarten.  Art plays a fundamental role in the aesthetic and emotional effect of your interior design.

This is where your personality and flair find their fullest expression, whether it be a painting, sculpture or object.

But choosing art work for your project can be a difficult process. If we’re working on your home with you, art can be a highly personal experience and this aspect of interior design comes down largely to personal taste. Our role is to advise you about placement, framing and other “big picture” elements rather than try to tell you what’s “good” art or “best” for your home.

For commercial projects the challenges are somewhat different. Your choice of art works are a significant reflection of the overall image of your business. Art, more than anything, will suggest a great deal to your visitors or clients about you, your business and your corporate philosophy. Our role is to assist you in choosing art that fits your business image while at the same time enhancing the overall aesthetics of your interior spaces.
