Our Mission Statement
NINA DI MARCO
Founder / Principal Designer
YDM Design Studio was born out of my love for interiors and my passion for helping people. Having lived in many different homes growing up, I know that our homes can really impact how we feel and function. That's why a huge part of what we do is getting to know our clients to make sure that we are designing spaces that really work with their lifestyle and needs. We pride ourselves on being transparent and open with our clients so that they can feel comfortable with us and the design process.
Since graduating from RMIT, I have worked with hundreds of clients to design their new build or renovation projects. This experience and knowledge allows me to focus on the bigger picture whilst also working on every little detail - so you can relax knowing we have it all covered!
Executive and Design Assistant

With over 6 years experience in the industry, Kaytie enjoys creating spaces for clients that are practical and functional yet still beautiful and unique to the client and their home.
In her role as Executive and Design Assistant, Kaytie helps out with everything from admin and marketing to design and procurement. However, we are so excited to have Kaytie lead our new eDesign service. Her experience in hard finishes selection will be invaluable to our clients!
"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!"

"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
"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
"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."
