“We used Alistairs' services in helping design our Extensions to our modest '65 AV Jennings brick veneer and are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. Assisted us with options we hadn't considered previously, thoroughly recommended.”

“We engaged Alistair to help us with interior and exterior paint colours for our mid century modernist house. It was great value. We would have spent days identifying existing colours and selecting new colours hoping they would suit our house. Alistair arrived with 1000’s of colours, a magic colour identifier and a wealth of experience to provide us with a manageable range of colours to select from and the peace of mind that the colours we paint our house are keeping with the era and selected to highlight the architecture. Thanks Alistair I’m sure we will be back in contact for more guidance in the future."

“We engaged Alistair for a two hour house call at the start of our renovation of a very tired Pettit and Sevitt home. Alistair answered all our beginners questions and was very generous with his knowledge, experience and contacts. He's given us some really valuable guidance in how to approach this renovation and how best to spend our budget, while at the same time helping us clarify what we want our home to look like at the end.”

“I have recently purchased a mid century house on Phillip Island and was pleasantly surprised to find this unique service when I was looking for renovation ideas.
Alistair was able to make a house call to me when he was visiting another one of his projects on Phillip island. He brought along his "doctor's bag" of excellent resources which he had prepared specifically for my house visit. I was very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge and look forward to making use of the design service in the future."

“Overwhelmed with our ‘renovators delight’ we had just purchased we found Dr Retro’s website and prayed he could give us some guidance. After just 2 hours with Alistair, his thoughts, knowledge, suggestions and contacts were just what we needed to give us the confidence to move forward without breaking the bank. We now have a spring in our step as we walk around our home to be. Thanks Alistair."

"We engaged Alistair's services as we needed guidance in how to move forward in restoring the warmth and character of our mid century home. Dr. Retro arrived loaded with reference, and samples of materials appropriate for our home. He also opened up his extensive book of contacts which was invaluable. Having him over was the perfect action we needed to clear up any confusion, and point us in the right direction of where we knew we wanted to go, but needed an experts eye. We would highly recommend Dr. Retro to anybody who is unsure of what direction to go with, or who is unsure of professional trades to engage for work on their home. Thank you Dr. Retro."
