Conny & Brett Leech – House in Bowral

Over the past 6 months we have been very fortunate to have had the benefit of Daniella Lavan’s help in designing our House in East Bowral. Daniella has been invaluable in providing expert advice for both Interior and Exterior design concepts while helping us to remain within budget.

Daniella has been instrumental in helping us find the best solutions for the entire house, ensuring that we end up with a home that will remain in style, vogue and functionality for many years to come. Without Daniella’s expertise this project could of had the potential to massively blow out on budget or turned into a miss matched mess however Daniella kept us on track at every turn. Everything from the Bedrooms to the Kitchen, Livings rooms to exterior area’s, nothing was out of her scope and her brilliant ideas were welcomed whole heartedly.

Her expertise and professionalism in her field is second to none and we would never have been able to achieve all of this without Daniella’s expert help and sound knowledge and ideas.

I can’t speak highly enough of Daniella’s abilities and would recommend her to anybody who seeks a talented, professional and knowledgable design expert who knows how to help achieve interior and exterior design goals.

Toni Dobbs – House in Bulli

I worked with Daniella Lavan on the interior design of a new construction home during 2017. During this time she helped me choose the flooring, tiling, cabinetry and internal and external colour schemes for my home, a job which when faced with this task on your own seems quite overwhelming. With Daniella’s assistance I was able to blend all of my ideas for my home into a flowing modern and contemporary space. Daniella listened to my ideas and quickly understood what I was trying to achieve but also brought her own insights with regard to colour, warmth and texture to the table, creating a timeless look for me in my new home. Furthermore, she worked effectively with retail outlets organising meetings and negotiating times. Our day together ran smoothly and to schedule enabling the time to be spent efficiently and professionally. Daniella’s attention to detail, coordination, and fresh ideas left me with great results!

I am really pleased with the results in my new home and I can quite confidently say that you will not be disappointed if you engage Daniella’s help!

Anne & John Proudlove – House in Thirroul

Daniella Lavan came to us, on the recommendation of a mutual friend, when we were looking for someone to help us style our unique property for sale.
After meeting Daniella and talking through ideas we were both convinced that she was the best person for the job. We did speak to other stylists however Daniella was easier to get along with and was enthusiastic. It didn’t feel like just another job for her.

The ideas that Daniella came up with, she implemented, dealing with the furniture hire people and all the tradespersons we used to paint interior walls and polish the concrete floor.

The results were excellent and were achieved with a minimum of fuss on our part. The house sold at auction and I believe it was helped immensely by the makeover.

Daniella is professional and creative with a good grasp of what the real estate market is looking for. We are happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a stylist. If you need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Michelle Forte – House in Austinmer

I have been working exclusively with Daniella Lavan for the past 2 years on an extensive house renovation.

Not only was she my designer, but Daniella also acted as the project manager for the job from beginning to end.
Honestly I couldn’t have gone through with this renovation without her.
Daniella is extremely organised, punctual for all meetings and in no way forces her personal taste onto you.

Her attention to detail is impeccable, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to the all important finishing touches.

I would work with Daniella again in a heartbeat and can’t recommend her highly enough for all design and project management work.

Marco Panizzutti – Hotel in Bowral

Daniella was introduced to me through a mutual friend and came with recommendation for Interior Design. I own a hotel in Bowral in which I was in the process of completely renovating. Daniella’s enthusiasm was extremely energetic and her ability to listen to my overall concept and come up with solution was quite impressive.

She worked quite closely with my builders, electricians, painters and project managed the majority of this on my behalf.

The colour scheme, furniture and lighting was very much a united decision and i was extremely happy with the overall outcome.

Daniella has also helped me on my own home. Again, listening and coming up with colour schemes, furniture and lighting to suit my personality and the general feel I was hoping to achieve.

I would highly recommend Daniella to any person who is looking to enhance their property for resale value or just to provide a pleasant environment in which to live in.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information.

John Davis – Mexican Restaurant

Gringo’s hired the services of Daniella’s company Spatial Elements to produce an interior design for our restaurant that would give it an element of sophistication that we were wanting to achieve for the site without being just another tacky Mexican restaurant.

Daniella’s design concept hit the mark in establishing very favourable feedback from our diner’s who constantly give us positive comments about the design of our relatively new restaurant, and the fact that it is a very warm, inviting and enjoyable atmosphere to be in when dining.

She has incorporated décor and furnishings which give the restaurant a rustic and warm feel with little clutter of furnishings and a casual contemporary style which give the Mexican restaurant a level of class while still representing traditional Mexican décor and colour themes.

We are very happy with her work in producing a design that we are very happy with and which is reflective in our customers many positive comments of the restaurant.
Her dedication and work ethic in this project were exceptional and certainly a member you would want on your team for any interior/exterior design project.

As well as having exceptional design flair, Daniella also demonstrated great attention to detail and a good understanding and awareness of completing a design within budget.

I would highly recommend Daniella to lead and complete any future interior design project, both residential and commercial.


Lisa Papesch – Architect

Daniella Lavan consults to me in an Interior Design capacity on a regular basis. She has a natural aptitude for assembling schemes together with colour in a harmonious way, ensuring that the tonal value is correct and suitable to the surrounding area and environment. She loves a bit of “wow” factor and knows how to bring this to the scheme, if required.

Daniella can follow a brief and find a solution which best suits the needs and budget of the client. I also have confidence in Daniella’s ability to speak with clients in a professional and intelligent manner.

She has a thorough knowledge of products and materials and a good
database of wholesalers and retails to source that special piece of furniture, tile, material or object that is needed to make your home or project different from the rest.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Daniella for Interior Design Consultations and feel confident that you will be very pleased with the end result.
