Reviews

Her attention to detail is amazing!

“We have been working with SDD services for over 10+  years for interior design of our homes, investment properties, styling and advertising our properties. She provides a unique service with a sense of style that is not short term but beautifully formed.”

— Mandy

She recognised the commercial sensitivity.

“SDD recognised the commercial sensitivity of doing more with less but also brought a sense of personalised style, positioning, structure and set up to produce a high quality finish - magazine standard.”

— Howard

It looks fabulous, amazing, different!

Restaurant Design

Fraser Cafe, Fraser Cafe II, Table 40

Award winning chefs the Fraser brothers appointed us to design and project manage three of their restaurants; Fraser Cafe, Fraser Cafe II and Table 40. The Two Fraser Cafes required full conversion and new construction to seat 80 guests. 

Table 40 was a convenience store converted to a private dining space which offers a weekly set menu seasonal dining experience.

For each restaurant we designed the concept, layout, seating, lighting, bathrooms, cloak rooms, entrances, open plan kitchen and seated bar area. 

 
 
 

The concept for Table 40 was a dark, inviting '1920s prohibition' inspired space. We mixed this with communal seating on salvaged Japanese-style tables and warm ambient lighting.  

Humblebrag: we continue to receive rave reviews for the design. The continued success of the restaurant is testament to the classical hip design and, of course, the Fraser brothers' award winning cuisine.

The former convenience store has been transformed into a small, funky space with dark blue walls, orange and lime-green accents, a constellation of filament light bulbs hanging from the ceiling with impressive long tables made from shiny slabs of reclaimed maple.

Property Development

Barwon Heads Residence

This project was featured in the Geelong Advertiser.

We have worked with this property developer for over seven years. We branded and developed the properties for an urban young audience who wanted a weekend getaway at the beach. We developed and fulfilled the design brief. A client who loves beach. We developed and fulfilled the design brief. A client who loves open plan living to entertain. They need a luxury kitchen  

Nothing to improve, it was fantastic.
— Madeleine, Airbnb client

and pantry. Space for friends to stay is essential. The kids need a play room and storage for toys. Storage is also important for beach and sports equipment. And of course a well decked out media room for relaxing and outdoor living and entertaining spaces.

The colour selection for the interiors has grown stronger with each set of projects, and the client is increasingly emboldened to choose stronger, more impactful designs and styles. We added powerful saturated colours throughout to add personality to the most recent project, an Airbnb rental property.


Residential Design

South Yarra Residence

The owner of this stunning property wanted a full update of the penthouse apartment. The brief was to bring people together in this two bed apartment. 

We designed custom Tasmanian wood shelving for the bedroom and living room and updated the lighting, flooring (chevron oak parquet flooring and new wool carpets). We gutted the boxy kitchen and added banquettes to create a welcoming nook to enjoy the morning light with the newspaper crossword. As part of our sustainability ethos, we updated the existing quality furnishings where possible and purchased new and vintage classics to blend with the client's current favourite pieces. 

The result was a modern, simple, practical and bright space. Our favourite parts are the stunning floors and the built in banquettes, where people naturally come together to enjoy a drink and chat. 


Residential Design

Richmond Residence

This Melbourne ski obsessed bachelor living in Richmond needed to furnish and style his two storey duplex.

We focused on a rich yet simple elegant colour palette and styled the residence with classical clean lines and a touch of Danish inspiration. We sourced all furniture and accessories, and commissioned artwork to create a functional yet stylish space, with plenty of storage for ski gear. 


Property Development

Barwon Heads

This Geelong/Barwon Heads property developer specialises in homes for urban families. The brief was to create the ideal weekend home with two bedroom and luxury open plan living. These homes were valued at an average of $1.5 million, so the design had to reflect the luxury getaway price tag. 


Residential Design

Malvern Residence

The brief was to design the new development and renovate the existing home to meet the needs of a growing young family. We introduced better space planning and specifications, to create more spaces for the family to come together. We also helped manage the family's desire to infuse the spaces with lots of colour and created a sophisticated and timeless colour palette. 


We care about the environment

Great interiors mean healthy, mindful and sustainable design. We specify low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) materials and recycled well-crafted materials, products and furnishings.
