What you can expect

What our clients are saying

"Thank you YDM design studio for producing our fabulous bathroom/laundry. Nina listened to our brief and developed a wonderful colour palate for us. Timelines and process were clear for first time renovators like ourselves. Would happily recommend Nina and her team."

- St Kilda East Client

"Nina was an absolute pleasure to work with, she went over and above for us throughout the design and build process, she made our vision come true. We never thought of engaging an interior designer for our house renovations, but it is the best money we ever spent and the service we got was second to none. She helped made the whole process seem less, enjoyable and mostly stress free. We can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for us and our family, we would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Nina!"

- Belgrave Client

"Nina is a delight to work with. Her designs are fresh and modern yet practical and responsive to our needs. Nina worked tirelessly with the builder to bring the project in on time and they were very pleased with the level of detail in her plans. Her ability to source other suppliers and products when the original products were unavailable or the lead-time was too long, was inspirational. No problem was too hard for her to solve. I would thoroughly recommend YDM Design Studio for any building or renovation project, especially if you are undertaking a large project for the first time."

- Bonbeach Client

"Nina has held my hand through the entire process, always mindful that I was a novice and needed to understand certain practical elements of the building process to make the correct decisions. It was a difficult process as we started in the middle of Covid-19 lockdown, so all contact was through the email and zoom. This did not prevent us from making some exceptional choices and completing our Schedule. Nina is professional, committed and very organised with great attention to detail. Thanks so much Nina for your creative work and exceptional customer service.

- Brighton Client

"Nina is an AMAZING designer. We loved having her work on our bathroom. She thought of everything, we really had no idea what we wanted at the start and she designed the perfect bathroom for us. She managed to make a very small room feel spacious. I cannot recommend her service enough."

- Ringwood Client

"It was an absolute pleasure working with Nina. From initial plans through to final fittings, Nina understood what we wanted and delivered an incredible finish. Nina was punctual, efficient and worked with us to achieve our goals. She was always available, even for last minute changes, and ensured that our finished home was carefully thought out and executed. Nina worked within our budget and we have a beautiful home that we are so excited to enjoy. We would highly recommend Nina."

- Brighton East Client

"I commissioned YDM Design Studio to renovate my 2 story apartment in a more modern style. Nina was very good at listening to what I wanted and also giving me great ideas about how to achieve the look I wanted. The designs were drawn up quickly and looked great. The build completed just yesterday and it looks even better than I'd imagined. I'm thrilled with the result."

- Collingwood Client

"A major renovation was always high on my ‘not to do’ list. So when I found myself unintentionally facing one I knew I needed help. In Nina I found someone who could listen to our ideas and concerns. An excellent communicator, Nina was always enthusiastic and diplomatic. She helped us reimagine our house while respecting its heritage and incorporating little quirks that make it truly ours. Thank you, Nina."

- Beaumaris Client
