I still cannot get over how amazing our new rooms are.

Extremely happy with the experience we had with Carla designing our master bedroom and office. She was fantastic to deal with and I still cannot get over how amazing our new rooms are. I would gladly recommend Carla to anyone!

Thank goodness we discovered Carla Rausch Designs.

As excited owners of our new Gold Coast apartment we were daunted by the task of having to renovate and fully furnish the space previously occupied by long term tenants. Thank goodness we discovered Carla Rausch Designs. From the moment Carla stepped into the apartment, and after a brief consult, I could tell she knew exactly how to transform this tired apartment into our dream holiday home. Carla and her amazing team actually made the process a joy to be a part of. From arranging the tradespeople (who were all lovely to deal with as well) choosing the furniture, arranging the installations right through to our amazing "BIG REVEAL" and all within budget. Even if I had the talent and the time, I could never have created such gorgeous rooms without access to a fabulous range of suppliers. Sometimes I catch myself staring at amazement at how every single item chosen works in unison to create a beautiful calming and relaxing space. Thank you Carla, Mary, Margaret and Sophie from the bottom of our hearts The special times we've spent with our family since creating this perfect home away from home for us have been all the more special because of the environment you've created. I guarantee who ever gets to work with you will get to feel this as well.

Not only something beautiful but unique!

Carla is one of the most thorough, intuitive and astounding interior designers you could be fortunate enough to bump into! Not only does she has am immaculate eye for detail her inspirational ideas will leave you astounded.

I highly recommend Carla for any of your design needs. She will never leave a job half done and will always deliver not only something beautiful but unique! I said to Carla before she started working on the interior design for my unit and working studio space that she would have to perform a miracle given the state of affairs it was in. I could feel her smile through the phone line as and humbly replied "well that's my job". To me honest I was still left wondering how it could be transformed into the space I wanted it to become. 

Well in one day her words became truth and the results were close to miraculous. The reason I say close is for the reason that it would appear a miracle if I didn't trust and know that Carla's experience, qualifications and absolute genius, integrity and hard efforts need credit too! Carla at all times conducts herself in a professional way. This is clearly her passion and it shines through the results as the space is now not just any space, but a space of wonderment, excitement, freshness and appeal. Undoubtedly the most well deserved write up for a women who's talents will not disappoint.

The end result is Spectacular!

Carla and her very talented team have completely transformed our old, dated holiday townhouse into the most beautiful space imaginable.
From the moment of first contact with Carla we were impressed. From the practically instant reply to our enquiry with a detailed and transparent scope of work, the entire process from there was a dream.
The communication along the way was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Carla and her crew were generous with their time and were always willing to provide advice outside of the core scope (like paint colours, taps and things like that).
Every last detail was thought of and the end result is spectacular. We would not hesitate to recommend Carla Rausch Designs.

You won't go wrong if you use Carla and her team.

We used Carla to redesign the reception area of our salon. What a difference it made. She made the whole process easy to understand and complete. We could never have achieved the beautiful, welcoming area without her help. You won't go wrong if you use Carla and her team.

A Breeze to deal with!

I I first met Carla Rausch when we were building our home at Oyster Cove. The plans were complete however we had to make major decisions regarding colours, tiles, carpet, finishes, kitchen layout, etc. etc. It was overwhelming. Somebody I knew had mentioned an interior designer called Carla Rausch who they were impressed with so, I just googled one day, came across and thought, why not. From my first contact with the company I was struck by how friendly and accommodating they were, a breeze to deal with. The response was professional and speedy and our first meeting was arranged. I met Carla at our house, which was at the gyprocking stage and I was immediately comfortable. I started to relax about 15 minutes into our walk around, feeling everything was going to be okay… well not just okay, everything was going to be fantastic. Carla pointed out things that we hadn’t even considered and she had a few different options that would suit our requirements. After this meeting, it all fell into place. Every step of the way we were guided and advised by Carla and her team in an easy, helpful and inspirational way. The end result is a home that takes my breath away and triggers a ‘wow’ from all those that walk through our door. I couldn’t recommend Carla and her team highly enough - and I can’t wait to work with her again on our next project.

I’ve just updated my post to add that Carla and her team have just worked on my sister’s new house project and has, once again, made life so much easier for us all. Brilliant ideas, and wonderfully professional - and fun to work with. If you want to enjoy the process of creating your dream space, just give Carla a call - and it will be happy days from then on. Thanks Carla and team. Really appreciate everything you’ve done for us.

A perfect result

and all within budget!

Carla is a gifted interior designer!
I have enlisted carla's help a few times now and each time I have been thrilled with the results.
Carla takes the time to understand your requirements and taste and then works with you to come up with a perfect result and all within budget. Highly recommended!

Brendan, Runaway Bay

Thank you for making this a very special experience.

Dear Carla & Team,

Today was a thrill for me to see the finished project! The whole experience has been joyful because of the care and attention you gave to make it so, including working around my travel schedule over a three month period. 

Being an elderly widower asking you to decorate my apartment you listened carefully to my requests and then set out to make it my enjoyable comfortable home.

All three of you worked seamlessly in taking care of all of the requirements of deciding, then ordering, then paying and delivering. You gave special attention to see that deliveries of furniture were brought to me in such a way that I did not have to handle the delivery or the packaging that was removed.

Carla, you made selections that maintained a masculine flavour for the decor since I am the only one living in the apartment. However, the overall effect is tasteful and pleasing!

Thank you all for making this a special experience in my life. I am sure my wife would be pleased with the final result if she was still with me.

Special regards,  

John, Redland Bay

More than a house...

your dream home!

Carla was a Godsend and has the patience of a saint. We didn’t know what we had bitten off when we decided to build and design our own home. It is a mammoth task and we were confronted with a myriad of decisions and selections.

We are both professionals and are running our own business so we work long hours and are very time poor. We needed help.

Carla listened intently on our desires and what we wanted to achieve. She then set about helping us with choices of samples, options and giving us direction. Her direction, choices and flare for design are all outstanding.

I can’t really put into words how much Carla helped my wife and I. It can be a very stressful and emotional time and Carla helped keep us focused, motivated and most importantly sane.

I have no doubt our house will look sensational and be everything that we wanted but …. we could not have done it without Carla. Thank you.

We can not recommend Carla highly enough and if you want your house to be more than a house but your dream home Carla is the one that can achieve that for you.

Malcolm & Julie, Benowa

From the first ten minutes we knew Carla was the one to help.

We contacted Carla when we had the task of choosing absolutely everything for our apartment that was being renovated from top to bottom. 

From the first ten minutes we knew she was the one to help. She gave us great ideas and met us at various shops to assist us with selections. She is very easy to talk to and professional in every way. We also appreciated her up front fee structure so we always knew where we were financially. We would highly recommend Carla for all aspects of interior decorating. 

June & Jack Yates, Broadbeach

It is a pleasure having you 

as my Interior Designer.

One only has to meet Carla to realize what style she has.  Having personal style is one thing, however, and it is in Carla's ability to translate that style to her many client's differing tastes, that her talent shines.  

After nearly three months of getting my new home "together" I have not even once had the thought  "if only I had done..........something else.......".  I am so happy with my home.  Carla has made me feel like I have achieved the finished look, and more importantly, the "feel" of style and comfort which was my request.  Very early in our relationship Carla picked up on my taste, very gently guiding me when necessary, and I don't think I disagreed with her on any suggestion she made.  

Carla, it is a pleasure having you as my Interior Designer (you will be my designer of choice when I need some expertise in the near future) and also as my friend.

Thank you sincerely.  I would be very happy to give anyone my highest recommendation.

Gwen, Robina

We highly recommend Carla & her team!

My first meeting with Carla Rausch and her Team (C & T) was at our Early 80’s Coastal 3 Bedroom Apartment with plans to redesign the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry to improve the apartment’s functionality and aesthetics, as well as, choosing modern fittings and furnishings and updating the original 80’s lighting. C & T had the ability to visualise, draw detailed plans for contractors, as well as, work with our style, needs and budget. Our Apartment is now homely and modern, whilst still feeling as though we are on vacation when visiting with easy living. C & T offer a “reveal package” which includes delivery of all furniture, placing furnishings and styling the spaces. What was left for us to do was walk in and relax with a welcoming Champagne and Cheese Board from the Team. We could not have achieved the supreme luxurious outcome on our own. It is a cosy getaway which we love.

After the accomplishment of updating our Apartment we appointed C & T to refurnish and style our dated 13-year-old home in need of a mini makeover. C & T took the time to walk through our home and design mood boards so we could easily visualise the ideas and with C & T and their unique Suppliers the items were ordered and delivered to our home. C & T have again created amazing spaces in our home to enjoy for many more years.

We can highly recommend Carla and her Team to work with you for a hassle free and incredible result wherever your space.

We’ll be back to use her impressive services again!

We had the pleasure of working with Carla Rausch from Passaddhi House of Design over a period of about four months while preparing and selling our home on the Gold Coast ahead of moving overseas. We brought in Carla to help us style our home for listing photographs, and she far exceeded all our expectations.


Carla worked tirelessly on our large home, putting in around 11 hours straight to have it ready for photographs. She worked with our own pieces as well as a fabulous supply of her own, to create a consistently outstanding presentation in every room and throughout the exterior spaces.


Because of the time and logistics constraints, we worked alongside Carla, and found her to be hard-working, highly creative, and energetic. She was unstoppable in achieving the ‘wow’ we were looking for.


We also discovered in Carla enormous caring and empathy at a very stressful time in our lives. Working with Carla was like working with a warm and wonderful friend -- someone who understood what we were going through and did everything in her power to make our task easier and our anxiety lighter.


We had to leave Australia prior to our home selling, and again Carla really shone. With only a few instructions over the phone, Carla staged our empty home to perfection and we secured a contract at the first inspection. She also regularly checked on our home and cared for it in our absence.


We highly recommend Carla Rausch as a professional, reliable and talented creative with an enormous capacity for empathy, understanding and warmth. She was our secret weapon in the successful sale of our beloved home, for sure – and we’ll be back to use her impressive services again.

Natalie & Tim, Worongary

I recommend Carla's expertise, skill and professionalism to everyone!

Completed within three months, hassle free and within budget.

Having thought about wanting to update my home for a while with no idea where to start, it all changed when I made contact with Carla Rausch Designs. With Carla's experience, the project was completed within three months, hassle free and within budget. Thanks to Carla and her team, I now love my home.

Carole, Mudgeeraba

I cried happy tears!

Carla and her team were fantastic! They made our house practical for everyday life without ever sacrificing beautiful style. Our house is everything we ever wanted and more, I cried happy tears when I saw the end result. Carla openly listened to our concerns and provided various ideas and solutions for the project. She answered all our design questions while implementing new ideas and lay outs. Thanks to her we felt confident in our choices. Carla is such a warm person with abounding enthusiasm and a genuine love for what she does. Her clients are her passion and she truly cares about your happiness with her designs. Highly recomend!

Luxury & elegance.

Carla Rausch Design was recommended to assist us with a full uplift of our facility and to say we are grateful is an understatement.

Once CRD was given our project brief, they were absolute professionals through the whole process. They develop the theming and colours, organised purchase/delivery and install taking the stress away from us. All this was done within our timeframe and budget, and helped us to achieve more than we would have hoped for. The feeling now from the moment you walk through the front door is one of luxury and elegance. This feeling carries with you through the lounge and dining rooms and has provided our residents with a true 5 Star environment.

No matter how many emails or calls we made to CRD to propose new ideas or changes it was just never a problem. Carla and her team were always accommodating and understanding and went over and beyond to ensure we got our end result achieved to our satisfaction.

If you are looking for quality work from an amazing team of staff, we would highly recommend Carla Rausch Design and her team.
