We are thoroughly delighted with our new kitchen and laundry renovations which have been recently completed ! Vanilla Slate have certainly helped to create a ‘wow’ factor in our home of 20 years.   We engaged Vanilla Slate to assist us with design ideas, layout and the drawings required for the council approval process.   Both Eriana and Lyndie are very easy to deal with and are full of wonderful, fresh and creative ideas backed by significant experience in design.   They listened  patiently to our wishes and requirements whilst at the same time providing helpful suggestions and prompters for consideration, many of which we incorporated into the final designs.    Particularly useful were the design presentation pack (with sample layouts, drawings and photos of the finished kitchen and laundry) and the accompanied visits to select both the kitchen cabinet company and tiles.   Great care and attention to detail was given in matching floor colours, wall paints and tiles.
We were impressed with Vanilla Slate’s regular check-ins during the building and construction phases, taking photos and providing a great visual record of the whole process at the end of the construction.  All this great service and a true pleasure to deal with both Eriana and Lyndie at each stage of the process.  We would strongly recommend Vanilla Slate to anyone looking for a top level, fully professional interior design outcome.

I am beyond thrilled with my new kitchen design. For me the challenge was that I knew I wanted something quite different to what I saw featured in most showrooms, yet I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted nor did I have the time to piece together ideas! Having you both come in and not only skilfully interpret my vague vision, but add elements I would never have considered without you, meant the final result absolutely exceeded expectations.
Above and beyond your expertise, you were also such fun to work with – patient, encouraging, always available and highly amusing. I cannot imagine ever undertaking a reno project without Team Vanilla! Danielle, West Pennant Hills

Lyndie and Eriana are a dynamic design duo!! No stone is unturned when you decorate with these ladies; their eye for detail and lovely personalities make the whole process of renovating or freshening up your decor a joy rather than a chore. I work with a lot of designers, but Lyndie and Eriana know how to give their clients confidence with colour and finishes, rather than always playing it safe. I have no hesitation in recommending the Vanilla Slate team for any of your design requirements. Lucia van Gerwen


I approached Vanilla Slate Designs to redo my daughter’s room for her 12th birthday. They developed a style board with their ideas for the room, which I was able to wrap up and give to my daughter on her birthday. I found that Lyndie and Eriana listened to my ideas and produced ideas that blew me away but were still within the budget that I had given them. I particularly liked the way that they took the original colour sceme of aqua blue and added different shades of blue and green that complemented the room in a way that I could never have done. Their knowledge of colours and textures really impressed me.  There was much laughter and enjoyment on installation day and it just made the whole process of transforming the room so very enjoyable!
I do believe that the ladies from VSD went over and above the “call of duty” and delivered a room that I could never have imagined or achieved on my own.

We were so impressed with the design ideas, shopping recommendations and guidance offered by Vanilla Slate designs for our recent living room makeover. Having just moved into a new home, the living room area offered us an intimidating blank slate to work with. With Eriana and Lyndie at the helm, we could relax and enjoy the process of making our new home special. Vanilla Slate Designs were able to work within our budget to achieve a fantastic end-result. Even after many months, we are still loving the living room and its many moods, often commenting on how complementary the furniture, lighting and accessories are. So glad that we avoided our typical approach of just furnishing the area ourselves. Vanilla Slate Designs’ expert input is really a must if you want to maximise the look and feel of any are in your home – absolutely worth it! Lynette, Kellyville

Lyndie and Eriana at Vanilla Slate are the friendliest, most positive, talented designers I have come across. What impressed me the most after our fist meeting was that they really listened to what I needed, and understood that I had a tight budget. They were able to quickly  identify my style and present a plan to redesign my kitchen, down stairs bathroom, dining and lounge area. After we had a plan in place they worked with me to find the most suitable trades people to overhaul my tired  kitchen and sort out the numerous odd jobs, and we had a trip to local homemaker centre to discuss what furniture and accessories would suite both my style and my house – they just know what works! Lyndie accomplished the impossible and found me my dream lounge.
I would highly recommend Vanilla Slate to anyone wanting some ideas on how to freshen up their house through to someone in need of a complete renovation. They make the whole process very enjoyable. Karen, Castle Hill

Working with Eriana and Lyndie of Vanilla Slate Designs was a truly positive experience.  They helped me to refurbish my residential home in West Pennant Hills and also a Melbourne apartment for rental on the executive market.  This included choosing paint colours, carpeting and furnishings as well as arranging trades.  This was all done at a distance and under considerable time constraint.  Always, they worked in a fun yet professional manner and at the end of the day the project was a huge success.  I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again on future projects .
