Over the course of his 20-year career, Dan Reilly's earned a reputation as a leader in the construction industry. And for good reason. His building start came young, in the form of LEGO on the lounge room floor. Next came his role as a qualified carpenter, then a site foreman, a project manager, and now a certified Master Builder. LEGO has a lot to answer for.
Dan gets the most satisfaction from his work on handover day. There's nothing more rewarding to him than seeing happy clients step into their new home for the first time.
When he's not getting feeling the warm and fuzzies over a job well done, Dan's looking forward. He's a bit of a futurist, our Dan – always learning new techniques, testing new products, and trying to push the boundaries of design. He takes pride in striving to provide his clients with not only the highest and most progressive design standards, but the best and friendliest service, too. And he loves every minute of it.
You may remember Dani Wales from TV shows such as The Block (on which she was a two-time contestant) and Healthy Homes Australia (which she currently co-hosts). And when she's not dazzling millions of Australians with her flair for design and passion for detail on TV, she's dazzling clients.
As a qualified interior design expert, it's Dani's job to create beautiful spaces from the inside out. She's a problem solver, and she takes great pride in designing smart, comfortable areas that people want to spend time in. She knows there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution to her work, and she loves nothing more than stepping outside the box, kicking the box to the curb, and getting creative.
Like Dan, Dani gets the most joy from her work when she sees her clients step into their home for the first time. Not everybody gets to help people create their dream homes for a living, and she wouldn't rather be doing anything else. She lives and breathes this stuff.
Ashlee Moyle is Red Door Projects' newest recruit, an interior designer who creates, in her own words, "bloody fab spaces". (Dan and Dani liked her immediately.)
In 2012, Ashlee started her own independent design firm, remodeling high-end residential spaces in Melbourne, experimenting, finding her way to a bold and sophisticated style.
A lot of designers tend to think local. (If it's good enough for Australian tastes, it's good enough for them.) Ashlee isn't like that. She reads widely and travels often, studying overseas design and filling notebook after notebook with ideas. That's why many of her projects have an international flavor. Punchy but subtle spaces. Interiors that challenges a client's thinking, while still knocking the brief out of the park.
She also shares Dani's love of spreadsheets. Really it was a no-brainer.
