The story so far......

12 years ago, Fiona Hutchinson noticed a gap in the market for affordable decorating and design consultancy. With a flair for design and a background in marketing and project management, Fiona opened Revive Design Solutions.

"My research indicated people generally thought having the assistance of a professional Designer/Decorator was an expensive option that was out of reach, and I believed that did not have to be the case. With people becoming more and more time poor and spending much more on their homes, today, more than ever, it makes sense to seek the assistance of a professional". says Fiona.

Fast forward a few years and Revive Design has evolved to become Design Build 101 - a name that says what they actually do - Design, Build or both! 

Design Build 101 works in all areas of design, decoration and renovations and project managment and can assist clients as much or as little as they require. "Every one of our clients is different and has different needs, our projects range from one off consultations, to new kitchen and bathroom renovations, full extensions, pre start design work on new builds and commercial design and fitouts.  Some clients choose to be very hands on and others leave it all to us, we are happy to accommodate either needs" Fiona says.

Fiona believes Design Build 101's success is due to listening to the clients needs at the initial consultation stage and being able to move forward quickly on a project. "We have built excellent relationships with reliable trades and service professionals who care as much about the project outcome as we do. In addition we know where to source the right materials for any budget, and have an extensive understanding of design asthetics.  Our goal is to delight our clients and save them time and money".
