About Us

Formed by Gayle and Hank Gijsbers in Sydney 28 years ago, Decorated Earth is centred on a passion for working with stunning, durable and ever-evolving materials.

After discovering the unrivalled beauty of the Byron Bay region of New South Wales a couple of years later, they made the decision to abandon their city life in Sydney. For Dutch-born Hank, the rural lifestyle, pristine beaches, rivers and lush green valleys of Byron Bay have made this paradise home. Embracing the Byron Bay region and its community was a winning decision for Gayle and Hank, their family and growing business.

When choosing tiles, it’s a long lasting finish, and one you may well be looking at for many years to come. Our desire would be for you to not have to compromise on quality and service. We take the time, care and precision to ensure that everything is done right the first time and that the work will last for all of those years. Remember..great service and results are remembered long after the price is forgotten.

Helping clients achieve outstanding results is the ultimate goal for Hank and Gayle and the team at Decorated Earth.

Being an architect, I have seen a lot of tiling, and worked with a lot of tilers. Working with Hank at Decorated Earth was the best experience I’ve had in 25 years of practising. Great guys to have around on site, nothing is too hard. Their attention to detail, and precision was second to none. Calling Hank a perfectionist is an understatement.

We were most fortunate to engage Hank from Decorated Earth for our project. The work ethic, reliability and commitment to the project was unsurpassed.
The standard of workmanship and attention to detail was as good as it gets.

The complexity of the tiling and detailed finishes involved to achieve the required falls to the floor grates, combined with precision tile cutting at obscure angles could only be achieved by a contractor with excellent skills. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Hank from Decorated Earth.
