We're in the business of changing lives, one home at a time.

Every project is a "pinch me" moment to us. We know there is no place more personal than home, and it’s an absolute joy to walk with you through this journey. Taking the time to get to know you on a deeper level is the foundation on which we create, and while we're all about streamlined processes and a clear brief, we pride ourselves on an agile and authentic approach - and we make it FUN (reason #1431 to hire us!). Because designing a home you love should be the most uplifting experience, from the initial concept presentation, to the moment you see the vision realised.

The experience of living in a beautiful, functional home is transformative. It can change our lives, bring more harmony and balance, serve to connect us with the ones we love and create a sense of well-being. Everything we do comes from the belief that we all deserve to feel the benefits of a customised, functioning and great looking home.

A pure, unwavering love of design (and a bazillion almond milk lattes) brought us here.

A Reconnection to Home.

Starting your renovation the RIGHT WAY.

The result, for us, is a home that we adore every inch of. Every room has been re-imagined beyond anything we'd thought of. Our home is now everything we ever dreamed of, plus a whole lot more that we didn't even know we would love or want. We have a home that is now our sanctuary, and we love coming home and being in it every day. We've achieved that, and we could never in our wildest dreams have done any of it without Donna.

“Donna is beyond words, the most incredibly talented and gifted interior designer.”

Donna Guyler is the essence of a genius designer! As this is our forever home, we were adamant that our new house had to be as near to perfect as we could get. We really wanted the WOW factor and after meeting Donna, we knew she was the designer for us. We gave Donna a budget and a timeframe and her team expertly worked with it. They designed the exterior façade and helped us finalise the internal layout, colours, materials and finishes for every room. They also designed the cabinetry and selected all the furniture and soft furnishings. If you are looking for the total package, Donna Guyler Design is it.

“We are now living in our absolute dream home and can’t thank Donna enough.”



I highly recommend Donna and we have used her for multiple projects. Donna goes above and beyond in everything she does. We absolutely LOVE working with her and we couldn't recommend her enough. If you need to get a job done and you need some INCREDIBLE advice, get Donna on your side. You will not be disappointed.

“Her effortless demeanour, positive attitude, understanding, compassion and attention to detail is second to none.



I am extremely fortunate to have come across Donna in the process of our full renovation. Her designs, colours and ideas have worked exceedingly well. Everyone is amazed with our place and we love living in it. It's fun and relaxed, yet stylish which neither my husband nor I would have been able to achieve on our own. To top it off, she's a gorgeous and bubbly person.

“If I had another place to renovate, Donna would be my first and only call. She's a gorgeous and bubbly person.”



Donna and her team were meticulous in their attention to detail and documenting of the full renovation in Byron Bay. Her aesthetic was faultless and worked extremely well for the kind of property that was being built. We were given very tight time constraints to get this project built and without proper planning and detailed specifications it wouldn't have been possible. It was great knowing that everything was thought through and designed with a holistic approach well before the project began. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Donna for future work.

“As a builder, it was a pleasure to work alongside Donna who had thought of everything and was extremely well organised from beginning to end.”
