Engaging Gabrielle for a bathroom and kitchen renovation was easily the best decision I made in the whole process. She is a complete professional who really knows her stuff. Not just colours and design, but appliances and tradespeople, and critically, the required standards for things like waterproofing and drainage. This turned out to be completely invaluable, and if it weren't for her care and professionalism, I'd be dealing with much bigger issues right now. Gabrielle is easy going, realistic, fair-minded, ethical, and pays exceptional attention to detail. She is an excellent communicator and saw the whole job through right to the very end. I probably saved money by engaging Gabrielle, since she steered me away from both unnecessary cost and false economy, plus she is very reasonably priced. We've just finished the bathroom / kitchen renovation, and I could not be happier and could not recommend Gabrielle highly enough.

I hired Elements of Style to bring our Victorian house back to its former glory after having tenants in the home for 4 years. Gabrielle was a professional who's advice and organisational skills were above all expectations. She hired all the trades, organised all the delivery of fixtures and fittings throughout the 4 month's the renovation took and came in on budget. The result more than we ever hoped for and love living back in our newly restored family home.

Gabrielle DiStefano, what a professional. On time and under budget, we could not be happier with the project she completed for me. My dull house has been transformed. Walls removed, kitchen renovated, excellent tradesman hired, plumbing moved, cabinetry built and installed, painters painting, even furniture placed where it should be. Patience and excellent taste made dealing with Elements of Style a joy. Thank you Gabrielle

Gabrielle Di Stefano worked with me on the renovation of my three bedroom townhouse and I cannot recommend her highly enough. I brought her on board to assist with what was a very difficult project, and through her patient advice, the project turned around and was delivered in a timely manner. As I was working full-time, she worked closely with my builder, becoming my eyes and ears on site and I totally trusted her advice and judgement – and her honesty. She is highly experienced, professional and her attention to detail is second to none and I am absolutely delighted in the finished renovation. Gabrielle was not only my conduit to my builder, she assisted me with the selection of a wide range finishes and detailing, providing excellent advice and when required, alternative suggestions that fell within my budget. You will enjoy working with her, as much as I did. Kerry I’Anson
