About Us

Decorated Earth was formed in Sydney 20 years ago. Husband-and-wife team Gayle and Hank (pronounced hunk) have centred the business on a passion for working with stunning, durable and ever-evolving materials.

Hank and Gayle made the decision to abandon their city life after discovering the unrivalled beauty of the Northern Rivers region of NSW 18 years ago. It was here that Dutch-born Hank felt he had found paradise. Months of travelling around Australia had given him a taste for a more rural lifestyle and in this land of pristine beaches, rivers, lush green valleys and towering rainforests he had discovered God’s Own Country. Embracing the region and its community was a winning decision for Gayle and Hank, their family and growing business.

A commitment to research and training together with years of experience have made Hank an expert in the tiling field. He and his team pride themselves on providing exceptional results with a complete range of tiling materials including glass mosaics, natural stone, glass ceramic, porcelain and pebbles.

Each of these products has unique properties, making them suitable to different applications and requiring expert handling and knowledge.

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