Carlene Duffy
@cedarandsuede

Zephyr and Stone
@zephyr_and_stone

Zephyr + Stone is an interior design studio run by sister duo Ania Forster and Kasia Clarke. The sisters are best known for their Design and Styling tips, with thousands of followers tuning in across the platforms of Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and their online blog. They specialise in kitchen, bathroom and laundry design and are regularly featured in the media giving design tips. 

Kyal and Kara 
@kyalandkara

Kyal and Kara began renovating over ten years ago when they purchased their first home. Kyal, having just completed his Carpentry Apprenticeship, and Kara, in her final year of university studying Physiotherapy, immersed themselves in after-hours work, creating their first transformation.

Fast forward a few years, and they've completed two reality renovation television shows, have regularly contributed to Network 10's The Living Room, and run a successful Design & Construction Business. We were lucky to get an up-close look into one of Kyal and Kara's renovation projects to share with you. 

Alisa and Lysandra
@alisa_lysandra

Design duo Alisa and Lysandra Fraser first came to the attention of the Australian public through their appearance, and triumphant win, on Australia's favourite renovation TV show, The Block, in 2013. Following this success, they founded Alisa and Lysandra Interiors in 2014, working on bespoke residential and commercial projects and collaborating with high profile brands. In 2018 the twins produced their first online series, The Design Duo, based on their multi-million dollar renovation in Albert Park.

Alisa and Lysandra have developed a unique design aesthetic that is minimalist yet luxe, masculine yet soft, and contemporary yet understated. They have become known for their distinct appreciation of impeccable quality and craftsmanship and highly tactile materials, and they unite together in a perfectly imperfect way.
