Suzanne Dawson Interior Design (SDID) is a Cairns based design studio established in 1995.

We undertake services in retail, commercial, hospitality and residential interiors.

Our objective is to deliver design that is both functional and individual. We enjoy the process of taking a building or space, understanding its limitations and developing its possibilities.

Interior design plays an integral part of the building process and we attribute good communication between our clients and project team as key to a successful project outcome.

Our design and documentation ensures every aspect of your interior is realised with the utmost care and consideration. We seek to add value to every project and deliver design that exceeds client expectations.

Our design approach is considered and sympathetic to our tropical lifestyle and environment.

With that all said, we simply love design and creating wonderful spaces to live, work and play.
