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!

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.

We were able to sell our property in three weeks!

We happened upon Carla's design service by seeing her shop one day. Carla came to help us quickly once we made contact and helped us to choose colours, prioritise areas that needed to be updated in the home and other areas that did not. Carla also assisted with styling our property for sale and the feedback was amazing.

We were able to sell our property in three weeks, though prior it was on the market for nine months! I would highly recommend Carla.

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.

Thank you for making this a very special experience.

Dear Carla, Sophie, & Lisa,

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

We sold our property at the first open home!

Carla was in one word - awesome!! She styled our house for sale beautifully which consequently led to a very quick sale (first open house!). Sale price achieved would never have been as good without her professional styling. Nothing was too hard for her and she went out of her way to help us in many ways. I can HIGHLY recommend Carla!

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.

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’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

A much higher price for our home than we ever dreamed!

At our initial meeting with Carla, we knew instinctively we wanted CRD to style our property in readiness for sale. It was clear Carla has beautiful design aesthetic just by speaking with her. Carla provided brilliant and practical advice, and described statement pieces, homewares and colours that would bring our renovation to life. Carla was very well organised and worked within our budget and timeframes to achieve a much higher price for our home than we ever dreamed possible. The entire team worked effortlessly to create rooms that were warm, sophisticated and beautiful. We were amazed at the transformation and are so grateful to Carla and the CRD team. We highly recommend this service. Thanks Carla and CRD team!
