  • I have Worked with Nathan for Many Years and met Kyla through him when they formed KG Design. Thorough professionals at all times but also a pleasure to work with on a personal level. Really well thought out and practical design work is a hallmark of the practice they operate. They have commissioned a number of bespoke carpets and rugs through my company with stunning results and earned fullsome praise from the end users.

  • This dynamic duo are passionate about design and are incredible at what they do!

    Kyla & Nathan (Kennard Gornall) provided us with a great & functional design for our kitchen and supplied beautiful contemporary outdoor furniture.

    Their attention to detail and professionalism make Kyla & Nathan an absolute pleasure to deal with and I look forward to engaging them again for our future renovations.

  • Nathan and Kyla worked with us and our architect in late 2014 to document all the interior design components for our major renovation. They helped us with all the finishes and fixtures and also with design features to enhance the work the architect did. As their documentation was good we have had no issues with our builder who commented that it’s been one of the easier projects as everything was so well detailed.

    Both Nathan and Kyla were great to work with and as per the recommendation from our architect pushed us with different ideas which was exactly what we wanted. While we didn’t always go with their recommendations they were always willing to try again and come up with alternatives. We wouldn’t have got that special look without their input.

    It’s now October and we are six weeks away from finishing and moving back in and everything is looking fabulous.

  • We cannot recommend Kennard Gornall highly enough. From the beginning to end they are professional, thorough, practical and creative. We could never have achieved such a professional finished result on our own. The way teams of different tradesmen were coordinated into their holistic vision is credit to them both. Thanks for making the journey such a pleasant experience.

  • I have worked with Nath & Kyla on some of Sydney’s finest homes over the last 10 years.

    They are young, dynamic, innovative designers of great integrity. They have been a pleasure to deal with, have a clear and precise vision for a project and execute it with minimum fuss and disruption.

    I have worked in the Sydney market for the past 39 years for many different designers and KG Design are by far the most professional, creative and efficient team I have had the pleasure to work with.
    I would strongly recommend them.

  • I had the pleasure to work with Kyla and Nathan from KG Designs on our extensive renovation project in Canberra in 2015.

    Both Kyla and Nathan were professional, efficient and dynamic and they both have amazing ideas, creativity and vision.

    They were completely across the brief and were extremely thorough in their design and execution.
    Kyla and Nathan worked extensively with our architect to make changes to the plans which improved the design and functionality of the renovation significantly.

    They also completely reviewed the lighting plan and made significant changes to the proposed lighting. The changes were a vast improvement and also a large cost saver.

    Being based in a different state to the KG Designs office was not an issue in any way, communication was clear, prompt and thorough.

    I have no hesitation at all in recommending KG Design for any project you may be considering.
    Their enthusiasm, sense of fun and professional experience will no doubt enhance your building/renovation experience!

  • With a 45sqm1 bedroom apartment, I wanted to update it to make the best use of the space. In such a small space. there is no margin for error. Having Kyla & Nathan design the renovation meant I was confident to proceed – I could see the best layout and the level of detail was there in the specifications, so I knew exactly what I was getting and how it would all work together. They negotiated discounts, found hard-to-source items, and kept the vision of the end result in sight as they selected fittings and furniture. They consulted with me throughout. This was my first experience of renovation, and they brought creativity and experience to it, without doubt addding value to the end result.

  • KennardGornall is a great company. Kyla and Nathan were introduced to us by friends who had engaged them for their renovation. We felt at ease at our first meeting. Having no idea or inclination about interior design Kyla and Nathan quickly understood our requirements then professionally guided us through the minefield of selecting everything.. tiles, lights, mirrors, cabinets, façades and windows to designing all the carpentry items including the kitchen.

    They are practical and creative. They listen, are very patient and down to earth. It has been a great pleasure working with them.

    I can highly recommend KennardGornall and would be happy to speak to anyone who would like a verbal recommendation.

  • “I engaged Kennard Gornall (KG) to undertake an inner city apartment renovation. From the outset KG spent the time with me to understand my lifestyle and requirements. They provided a variety of different options according to my budget however at no time was design or quality compromised.

    During ‘the build’ and project management phase, KG’s expertise and experience proved invaluable. They took time to work with tradesmen to explain concept, design and purpose, and their strong relationship skills with tradesmen ensured that the time line of the project was achieved.

    The end result of KG’s design and passion is a stunning and functional, Scandinavian inspired apartment that brings a smile to my face every day! Highly recommend these two. Cheers guys!”

  • Nathan and Kyla of Kennard Gornall have been an absolute pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend them highly enough. We are delighted with the final outcome and our home has such a wonderful look and feel thanks to both of them. Their great ideas, input, experience and advice have been invaluable and we would have been lost without them. Nothing was ever a problem and they were always happy to liaise directly with suppliers and contractors.

    Nathan and Kyla are true professionals – they know their trade inside out and are always up with the latest styles and trends. They obviously love what they do and this shines through in their work. We will definitely be using them again.

  • I engaged Kyla on a consultancy basis for ideas on a small house renovation including a new bathroom, new windows, new tiling and the layout of rooms as some walls were moved. She had some brilliant ideas, was happy to pass on some great suppliers and she had a thorough knowledge of all aspects and processes. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.

  • It was a very positive experience working with Kyla and Nathan on the design and interior refurbishment of a contemporary home. As well as great design instincts they have a thorough approach to detailing, scheduling and follow up to ensure smooth project delivery.

  • As a supplier to Kennard Gornall, they have been a pleasure to work with. Kyla and Nathan are clear and direct in what they want to achieve for their clients. They always attain amazing results and have proven to be passionate in their intention and commitment to project delivery/outcomes.

  • At a grassroots level Kyla worked closely with our architect on our floor plan to ensure that during our second story addition and renovation to our Hunters Hill Californian Bungalow we retained our historical home’s features but cleverly maximised the internal space to allow for light, flow – and most importantly for a family with two young boys, for storage. Kyla helped us during construction with our kitchen and bathroom designs, lighting and post-construction with our wall colours and in sourcing eclectic furnishings as per our design brief. We wanted a ‘retro modern’ feel and we are so thrilled with the result and highly recommend Kyla to everyone.

  • What a terrific idea it was to approach Kyla and Nathan to guide us through our renovations! I could not be happier with their contribution, which has transformed the design from ordinary to extraordinary. They brought a wealth of experience and design insights, and what amazed me most was their ability to synthesise my taste with their good design. The place feels like mine, but far better than I could have ever achieved on my own.

    Both Kyla and Nathan were completely attuned to our preferences and were more than happy to tailor the nature of their service to our needs. They are delightfully friendly professionals and I highly recommend them to anyone wanting any level of help with a renovation.

  • Kyla and Nathan have been a God send! They are truly talented professionals who are easy to deal with, flexible and patient. Their input has been invaluable throughout the course of building our first home. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a high quality outcome.
