About

We’re a collaborative design team with a vision to think outside the box, delivering creative, functional results and a great customer experience.

We do everything interior design. We’re focussed, outgoing, a little obsessed with design and not afraid to take on any project or get our hands dirty.

We can do one-off jobs, but we’ll always be thinking about the bigger picture and how we can take your designs to the next level.

  • “Louise from Department of Design came highly recommended by a work colleague and family friend. After my first meeting with Louise, it was obvious that I’d found a kindred spirit, that was a delight to work with. Louise shared my view that the interior of a home can be both practical and functionable but still have great design features.”

    Lisa Koch – L + L Residence
  • “I’m an absolute raving fan and have recommended Kier and the Team to many others who also rave about her results.”

    Leisa Newman
  • “Elaina and Chelsea embraced the brief, blending textures and colours in a way that worked and carefully listening to what we wanted. We gave them licence to be bold and they did not disappoint.”

    The Burdons
  • “Louise and Kier have created an amazing studio and design team, who not only have a great understanding of interior design, but also architecture and landscape design. This enables DoD to provide a holistic approach that is well coordinated, resolved and that considers its surroundings.”

    Danny Agnello – Manteena Residential
  • “We have collaborated on several projects (large and small) with Kier and the DOD team in the past couple years. We are always impressed with the sophisticated and well documented designs they come up. We look forward to working together in the future.”

    Hugh Gordon – Hugh Gordon Architects
  • “Our experience with the Department of Design has been amazing. They are not only great designers but achieve a great balance of stunning design with creating a practical liveable space for our family. They really listened to us and provided their design expertise integrated with our preferences and needs. We highly recommend DoD.”
