Jillian Dinkel is the Terrace House Designer


Sophisticated and timeless in the way we adapt heritage homes to modern lifestyles

Our Ethos

Our interior design studio was founded on Jillian’s desire to create beautiful family homes while specialising in adapting period homes to contemporary living. We believe in embracing the passage of time by respecting a home’s heritage architectural detailing.

Creating a delicate balance between old and new is the hallmark of our designs, and our transformations of period homes are always reflective of our client’s daily rituals. From creating the perfect sunny spot to enjoy your morning coffee to the perfect table to host Christmas lunch, we create homes that serve as the backdrop to your family memories.

The essence of our studio is derived from the calm and considered way Jillian approaches each project, and how she takes her clients on a journey of discovery. Immersed in the design world, Jillian works with the finest craftspeople and consultants to deliver a highly personalised service that transforms spaces into homes that are unique to our clients.

About Jillian Dinkel

With an unabashed need to create beauty around her, Jillian spent over a decade surrounded by the history and soul that permeates New York City.

Before focusing on interior design, Jillian was a Photography and Casting Director, booking celebrities, producing and expertly managing the logistics of international photo shoots for Condé Nast in New York City and Vogue Magazine in Sydney. During these fast-paced years, Jillian cultivated her personal style and appreciation for well-designed surroundings; the foundation of her interior design studio and the aesthetics of her highly coveted interior design projects, many of which have been featured in Australia’s most prestigious design magazines
