The CRD difference is in our approach. We are serious about innovative and tailored design, but committed to making the journey fun and inspiring from start to finish. Led by director and principal interior designer Carla Rausch, our experienced team is down to earth by nature and focused on going above and beyond for the client. You’ll feel at ease as we confidently guide you through the process - from concept through to completion, removing the indecision and overwhelm so often felt during renovations and new builds.
Based on the Gold Coast, serving clients locally, interstate and internationally, Carla Rausch Designs have been honoured to support clients throughout their renovation or new build journeys for over a decade. From small updates to full-scale turnkey projects, we know how transformative considered design is to each and every project. Specialising in both residential and commercial interiors, we bring a signature love of modern elegance fused with practical sensibility to our work - signed, sealed and delivered to an exceptionally high standard.
With creativity and the capability to turn the unimaginable into the tangible, my design approach unites luxury with the everyday. It has always been a goal of mine to run a successful business alongside motherhood and show my girls what hard work and determination can achieve.
With over 15 years of industry experience, I’ve seen it all. No matter where a person comes from or who they are, everyone always has a story and that is where I like to connect. For me, it’s not just about the outcome. It’s about the process in the client journey, making sure they feel comfortable, confident and can have a laugh with us along the way.
