About us

Jill Rogers, the founder of DIY Designer, has over twenty six years experience across residential, commercial, retail, hospitality and retirement village design. Her work has been featured in Australian House and Garden and Interiors magazines, on the Today Show, Seven’s Today Tonight and as guest designer on Channel Nine’s Brisbane Extra. After several years in the industry, Jill saw a need for a more “hands on” design experience – something that would give renovators and home owners control and ownership over their homes’ interior/exterior design.

The result – DIY Designer!

DIY Designer is a short Workshop teaching home owners the basic principles of design, colour, finishes and layout, which during the Workshop they would apply to their own projects.  In essence, their renovation or new home becomes their design focus during the Workshop.

Jill has taught the Workshop for several years in classroom style which has been extremely popular with home owners as well as those within the building industry.  However, being based in Brisbane meant limited reach to those outside the area, and so the DIY Designer Online Workshop has been created to reach more home owners and renovators regardless of their location!


“Great design should be available to everyone who wants to create a lovely home, no matter what budget they may have, or where in Australia they live! This is a self-paced Workshop, studied in the comfort of your own home with the added advantage of daily design tutoring sessions to help you with your project!”
