Client Testimonials

Thank you Kathy,
My curtains have changed the hole feel of the master bedroom, I didn’t realise how large it was. The colour choices you recommended and your patience with the swatches were very much appreciated. Also your simple tips on changing the location of a rug placed in the formal lounge were invaluable. My new home has just blossomed since you installed your special touches.

Thanks again

Dear Kathy, I wanted to put in writing how happy I am with the recent installation you did for us. The curtains, blinds & pelmets are exactly what I'd hoped for. The workmanship was as good as I could've hoped for as was the service you provided. Your advice & experience makes all the difference. I look forward to having you do more work for me in the near future. I'd recommend you & your business without hesitation.

Kind Regards,

Kathleen Gawthorne trading as Design Darling


My wife and I recently employed Kathleen Gawthorne to make and install curtains in a number of rooms in our home.

It was essential to us that the curtains complemented the aesthetics of the house.

We were more than satisfied with Kathleen’s help and assistance in choosing the appropriate curtain fabric, her making of the curtains, her attention to the minutest detail in this regard and their installation.

Kathleen was generous with her time and nothing was a problem for her.

The curtains are certainly a very good testament of Kathleen’s ability and we are exceedingly satisfied with them. They complement the rooms beautifully

We would recommend Kathleen’s services without hesitation.

Yours faithfully,

Kathy Gawthorne of Design Darling was invaluable to our renovation project at Robertson over the course of 18 months spanning 2011- 2013. On time, consistent, helpful and motivated she always had a manner of gentleness combined with passion and flair. She has a great eye for design and detail and works within any budget. My husband and I felt blessed to have her on our team during the long renovation before our nuptials. It was a stressful time made easier by Kathy who remained consummate professional and team player. Nothing was too big or too small, every detail taking her consideration over the course of the project. She is honest, we had no concerns leaving her to her own devices on multiple occasions to finish some work while we were away. She also understands working to deadlines can be important. I would not hesitate to recommend her, in fact we won’t be using anyone else should we require any further assistance in our home.

I have worked with Kathy over the last eighteen months doing one particularly large and demanding job for a client with very high expectations. Despite the pressure at times and the complexity of the job, Kathy excelled herself.
Her professional approach, adherence to installation schedules and high quality of workmanship satisfied my client's expectations. I was delighted with the final product.

Dear Kathy,

Clients came today as well as some visitors for dinner last night. I was so pleased with the look of the lounge room of which the window treatment is the centre piece. Thanks so much for all the effort you have made to get these projects ‘over the line’ on time. Everyone was very complementary!
I have found you to be very genuine and to make every effort to provide a fair and professional service. I have felt very comfortable in our dealings, and I think you went beyond what I could have expected, especially at short notice. Moreover, I am so pleased with the result and my visitors have commented on your style and the quality of your work.

Kind Regards,
Kathleen - New Berrima
