MADISON GARDINER
LEAD INTERIOR DESIGNER

Following 6 years working in the industry, Madi lives and breathes all things design. She takes pride in her work, and ability to interpret her clients brief and personal style, adding a unique touch to each project she works on. 

Madi discovered her love for Interior Design from a young age. After completing her studies in Graphic Design, she chose to switch fields, hoping to create and work with clients on a larger scale. She found a passion for hard finishes and has a natural skill for customer service. Madi has since worked in roles on all sides of the industry, picking up knowledge and expertise along the way, and allowing her to develop relationships with clients, builders, suppliers and trades. 

Madi is committed to utilising her knowledge and talent in every project she undertakes, bringing clients' visions to life with a can-do attitude. Outside the DI Studio, Madi dedicates her time to making memories with her family and friends. On the weekend, you can usually find her at the dog park with her Corgi "fur baby", Basil. 

Likes: Iced Lattes, sunsets, thriller movies, cooking/baking and artificial plants (because they don't die)

JENNIFER KNIGHT
REVIT TECHNICIAN

Thriving on learning and creativity, Jen explored many areas of study before discovering her passion for interior design.  After graduating from a Bachelor of Design, Jen gained extensive experience working in architectural practices and her own business, enjoying a successful career spanning almost 15 years.  With keen attention to detail and a fondness for technology, Jen decided to move into design communication, producing drawings and visual imagery. She loves the process of interpreting design sketches and ideas and translating them into 3D digital models.  Jen has always been creative and loved making artwork, and channels that passion into creating beautiful renders of designs that clients can get excited about.  

Always open minded and interested in trying new things, Jen takes a curious approach to life, hoping to continually improve and grow.  In her spare time, Jen loves to work on her art practice, where she enjoys oil painting and is inspired by nature and botanicals as subject matter.  One day Jen hopes to have a solo exhibition and is also interested in further study in building design. 

Outside of work, Jen can usually be found at the rock-climbing gym, bouldering with her husband and friends, painting, or working on DIY renovation projects at home. Her little Italian Greyhound, Fuji, is always by her side or on her lap! 

Likes:  Art, travel, fine dining, red wine, movies, rock-climbing, hiking and dancing!

Dislikes:  Ignorance and leaf-blowers

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

You guys are just so BRILLIANT! Thanks for making our colour selection process so simple and enjoyable! As an agent and business owner, time is valuable, and I understand the frustrations that my clients are facing during their colour selection process. To have someone who can understand our needs and wants, and present something almost exactly what we wanted is just Brilliant! Don’t even mention the future resell value for the home and the saving marriages part is definitely a bonus! Thanks Dawn and Maddy!
