What our Clients Say

We used Modern Decor a few years ago to do the exterior of our multi-level property, they were excellent. They have recently done the interior of our home where there were some difficult to handle coach-wood finishes which were excellently handled. Overall, they are professional, prompt and a pleasure to deal with. We were away for most of the time that they worked indoors so we trusted them with our keys. Would definitely use them again and recommend them without hesitation.

Jeff & Lindsay Reinhardt

Our new house had not been decorated for at least 20 years, we had cathedral ceilings which were difficult to reach and painted pale pink plus wallpaper in the bathroom which went up to 6 m. The curtain pelmets had rusted and were difficult to remove, but all of this was managed by David and his team and we couldn’t have asked for a better result. He tackled everything with excellent preparation and workmanship, and knew how to deal with any problems quickly. His team were outstanding, they were prompt, efficient and detailed and all this at a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this company.

Alan Thomas

David and his team from Modern Décor did a fantastic paint job on our house. The critically important preparatory work was very thorough and the painting itself was done to a high standard. The work has stood the test of time, still looking as new five years on. 

In particular, David did an impressive job on our kitchen cabinets which were in good condition structurally but very tired. The kitchen installer who fitted our new benchtop couldn’t believe the cabinets had been hand-painted – he was convinced they were factory finished. 

We have referred David to a number of friends and family members and all have been delighted with his workmanship. On a personal level, he and his team are very friendly, efficient and considerate in their dealings with clients. We highly recommend Modern Décor as professional, reliable and quality painters.

St Ives Home Owner

Dave and the team at MDS recently completed a large contract on my home on Sydney’s’ Northern Beaches. The house is timber and has a lot of special carpentry detail both inside and out which needed dedicated and experienced painters to protect and to optimise the beauty of the build. MDS over a period of six months has worked in concert with our builders to deliver high quality on time on budget result. I recommend MDS to anyone who needs painters who require that don’t cut corners and deliver a superb finish.

I am pleased to recommend David Geoghegan and his team of painters from Modern Decor. Their workmanship is of a high standard, and they are a professional, reliable outfit.

Angus Urquhart
Anchor Building Company

Modern Decor Sydney provides a top-notch service through meticulous attention to detail, great communication with the client and courteous staff. What’s more, is that they make sure everything is cleaned up really well afterwards. I thoroughly recommend David and his company if you are considering a residential makeover.


Simon Darcy
Terry Hills Residence

MDS has done all our painting works over the years and have never let us down. We find them to be honest, reliable, and thoroughly professional.

Manly Home Owner

As a Manager of a high-end retirement resort, I supervised the refurbishment of a number of apartments on a regular basis. Our clientele is very particular in regard to the painting of the apartment, the yardstick they use for workmanship is that of craftsman that existed some decades ago. We always struggled to find painters that take their craft seriously until we made Dave’s acquaintance. We have high expectations of our tradespeople, Dave actually over-delivers – something that we have not experienced with the previous tradespeople. You may think such a perfectionist would charge appropriately; he doesn’t, we find Dave’s costs very reasonable especially considering the level of detail. Congratulations Dave you deserve every success!



Liane Dobler
COO, Waterbrook Lifestyle Resorts

David and his team were incredible to work with. At short notice, and initially with only photos and floor plan, they provided a quote and locked us in for painting our new house. David was upfront & clear about changes to the quote and scope of work initially, and through the job ( over 2 weeks!). They also did some extras that we hadn’t agreed and they didn’t charge us for them.
The quality of work and attention to detail couldn’t be faltered. True perfectionists, insisting on doing extra bits & pieces for us because they wanted to leave the job immaculate.
We have already recommended David & his team to friends and family, and will continue to do so. I hope we get the chance to work with them again!

Georgina Sanderson

Dave and his crew were awesome from the outset. On time, professional, friendly and had a great ‘can do’ attitude. They were realistic with their time expectations and worked with other trades seamlessly. One aspect I really valued was their tidy up, meticulous! Would use again in a heartbeat. Thanks MDS!
