"We have utilised the excellent services of Dwell South Coast on two occasions, for a new build and a major renovation, on very different types of properties. On both occasions Tonya's work has been excellent, saving us stress and hours of potentially wasted time and money. There are just so many options when trying to decide what you want in your new home. Tonya smoothed complications taking us quickly towards results to be proud of. We used to wonder if paying
for a *designer (*decorator) is something just for the rich and famous. The reality is that you can feel rich and famous because working with Tonya is fun and you get the glamour that know you always deserved!" Neil + Paola @ Berry 

“Thankyou for our Decorating Report. It is very helpful and informative with lots of great ideas” Mr + Mrs Holiday House @ Currarong

"We found Dwell South Coast searching the Internet. We are in Maryborough Qld. We called Tonya and she completely understood what we were trying to achieve with our new house we are building. We did everything via phone and email. We thought we would not be able to afford Tonya's services but Tonya was great value and very affordable for normal every day people like us. It has been worth every cent. Tonya understood our budget constraints and helped us to select amazing products and colours for our home. Even suggesting potential upgrades to consider, which we have gone with because they are such brilliant suggestions. We didn't even have to go carpet shopping, we just went with the recommendation Tonya made. The portfolio was so professionally presented with fantastic samples and made our choices and explaining to the builder and other tradies so simple. Tonya has even emailed other suggestions after finishing the portfolio. Can't recommend Tonya highly enough. Tonya has helped us so much and made our build more enjoyable. The ladies at the tile shop were very impressed with Tonya's portfolio when we were organising our tiles. This just reassured us we had made a great choice to get Tonya's help" Yolande + Frank @ Maryborough QLD

"Dwell South Coast offers a fantastic, great value for money service. We hired Tonya to provide advice on paint colours but what we got was so much more. Tonya was adept at understanding our tastes and requiments, and guiding us through the decision making process. As well as providing colour direction she advised us on a range of other elements - floorings, fittings and splash-backs. She even provided details of potential local suppliers.
A couple of hours with Tonya took all of the anxiety out of planning a refresh for our home and left us feeling invigorated, inspired and ready to make it happen"   Ms PR @ Jamberoo

"Thanks Tonya ~ it's wonderful we love it!"  Mr + Mrs T. @ Beachside

"We love all of it"  Mr + Mrs L @ Woonona

"We're tickled pink"  The J's @ Kiama

"I worked with Tonya Goode in putting together a decorative plan for my house and guest cottage. The service and plan given to me by Tonya was exemplary.  Her attention to detail, her reliability and her outcome exceeded my expectations.   She is very committed and provided us with a clear and thorough guide for how to proceed with our decoration, colour, carpet, flooring which helped us wade through difficult and complex decisions.  I would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone wanting to create a unified inviting living space"  Amanda @ Berry

"We contacted Dwell earlier this year to request assistance for a renovation on 3 bed house in Lake Conjola. The directive was to help us bring the house from the 80s into the 21st century and create a chilled out, bright and breezy coastal weekender. We wanted to get the feel right so that our future guests will feel comfortable and relaxed and want to return for a visit again and again. Working with Tonya was really enjoyable and easy, from the initial phone chat through to visiting our property and then delivering her ideas and samples within an incredibly quick timeframe.  The tones and colours which Tonya recommended have worked out fantastic in the house, we are so pleased with the results!!" Thanks again Tonya :)   The Thompsons @ Lake Conjola

"We are so very happy with the colours you picked out for us.  I would not have picked them myself, and at the time had doubts about the matte white and grey tiles in the bathroom and also the light colour of the floorboards.  I was in such a confused state when we got your help that I decided to go out of my comfort zone and just go with what you chose.  How lucky we were that I did. The light floorboards and the feature wall give the house a lovely warm feeling as soon as you walk in the front door.  They also give the rest of the open plan area a warm and spacious feel.  The grey/silver carpet (once again a colour I wouldn’t have chosen) in the bedrooms looks great and feels quite luxurious underfoot.  Both Colin and I think that the bathroom looks like it should be in a magazine instead of in our home, it looks so good"   Glenda & Colin @ Burrill Lake

"Many thanks for the super effort you have made in helping the beach house look a little prettier. I love it! Can’t wait to get started"  Holiday Rental @ Mollymook

"When I planned to refresh our home after 12 years I needed a creative partner to affirm my ideas and pose some new ideas that I hadn't thought of. Tonya delivered on both. I am grateful that Tonya was respectful of our current choices and the way we used our rooms and that the changes she suggested could be small with big impact. Our discussions were a springboard for me to visualise the possibilities of fresh, new light and colours and textures. I am excited to get started now and enjoy having family and friends relax in our home and garden with us"  Retirees @ Vincentia

"We have had the pleasure of engaging the services of Tonya Goode of Dwell South Coast for colour advice on our new/older home.  Tonya is a gem, a delight to work with.  We found Dwell to be very professional and thorough in their research to source the correct products for our particular job.  We were presented with a professional, easy to follow portfolio of colour specifications. We would definitely recommend Dwell South Coast"    Beverly & Gary @ Beaumont

"We consulted Tonya and Sharlene for advice on the colour scheme and internal features for our new house in June 2016. The initial meeting and follow-up discussions proceeded smoothly facilitating our confidence to proceed. Working to a tight schedule,  Tonya and Sharlene helped immeasurably in the selection and matching of colours and materials such as tiles, flooring and light fittings. In the end 'the girls' as they are happy to known as, came up with a solution that we are very happy with, plus they saved us much time that otherwise would have been spent trudging through multiple building supply outlets. We even ordered the all-important light fittings online (locally) without even visiting the shop. We highly recommend Tonya and Sharlene"  Neil & Paola @ Shoalhaven, owners of Sea La Vie @ Shoalhaven Heads

"Just a quick note of thanks to express our great appreciation for you efforts. We are VERY pleased with the outcome. We think our home looks lovely thanks to your skills and advice. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends and are happy for you to refer anyone else to us for comments. Please feel free to drop around anytime and take as many photos as you would like"   Barry & Ann @ Kiama

"Firstly we would like to thank you for your help and advise with choosing the colours for our home, it has come out really well with many positive compliments from neighbours & people walking past. We still have a little work to do on the front of the house with the front door being stained and the timber uprights need to be put in but we will get there. We are more than happy if potential clients want to contact us in relation to your services & we are more than happy for you to pass on our email address.  We would only praise your services as we are very happy with the results. So once again thank you we are very happy with the outcome of the house. May 2016 be a great year for you and your families"   Colleen & Michael @ South Coast

"We LOVE IT"  Retail Shop Owner @ Berry

"We are very happy with the professional service provided by Sharlene and Tonya. They have skills and ideas that complement each other and give the client opportunities for exploring different points of view. The advice given and follow up provided us with a confident approach to the repainting and styling highlights for the house"   Helen & MaryEllen @ Gerringong

"The Dwell Team was fantastic to work with! We loved their enthusiasm, professionalism and passion for interior decorating. They provided us with a colour palette and helped us create a beautiful, yet practical beach house which is perfect for luxury holiday letting. We really appreciated the clear direction and guidance which made our project a lot less stressful! And Dwell definitely saved us money! We didn't waste money on extra furniture/accessories or items that didn't fit our look"   Melanie @ Singapore, owner of Sundara Beach House @ Werri Beach

"It was definitely a Grand Design moment meeting with you yesterday albeit without Kevin McCloud and any angst. Thankyou for being part of the positive momentum this 'project' of creating a home has become"   Jenny @ Wollongong

"Hi Sharlene & Tonya, thanks so much for yesterday. Your comments and advice have given me some clarity and direction so I can go forward with a bit more confidence! Most grateful for your contacts and recommendations as well. Fabulous!"   Eevi @ Kiama
