A few kind words…
We put our heart and soul into each and every project we undertake, considering the finest of details as well as the big picture. When it finally comes together, often with squeals of delight or tears of joy from our clients, it reminds us of just how rewarding our work is, how blessed we are to do what we love and that our clients love what we do!
Dream To Reality
“When building our new home, it was Vanessa’s ability to interpret our thoughts and ideas, and translate them into texture and colour that has truly brought our dream to reality. She has given our home a style and feel that we absolutely love and would not have achieved without her.”
“Vanessa helped us make the most of a unique home with many unusual spaces. Rather than coming in with pre-conceived ideas, she was happy to include our suggestions and, for example, re-upholster favourite chairs to fit with the theme. Vanessa was adept at sourcing a range of pieces from which we could choose to include in our design. Her work certainly had a positive impact on prospective buyers when we recently sold our home. We would recommend Vanessa!”
“Vanessa and her team managed a complete renovation of our apartment in Main Beach. We live abroad so we were looking for someone who could manage all aspects of the project and come up with solutions based on our initial instructions. Vanessa did an amazing job for us and was a pleasure to work with. We are delighted with the results which were delivered to an extremely high standards and within a very challenging timetable. Vanessa has a great design flair and everything she has done has been completely to our taste, so she is great at understanding her client’s requirements and delivering for them. We’d recommend Vanessa without hesitation and will be engaging her for any future renovation projects.”
“As the saying goes, we bought ‘the worst house in the best street’ and were fairly intimidated by the undertaking ahead of us. We could have gone for a quick make over but decided to go the ‘whole hog’! Vanessa made suggestions along the way that we would never have thought of ourselves. We found Vanessa to be particularly clever with colour choices and took us out of our comfort zone which has been very refreshing!”
Best Birthday Present Ever
“So many family and friends have viewed our fabulous new home! We were literally overwhelmed on Saturday night when we arrived home to such a wonderful surprise. You and Andrew have created just what we wanted and at last I feel I am living in a home again and not just a holiday apartment. We cannot thank you enough – you nailed it! Thank you also for the gorgeous flowers! It was very special and kind of you both to give up your Saturday to wait and meet us. A truly wonderful end to a lovely holiday and the best birthday present ever!”
Essence Of Professionalism
“Vanessa Wood Interiors is the essence of professionalism, with the added magic of outstanding vision and beautiful concepts of colour, design and detailing. My experiences with Vanessa have been a joy, she has captured my thoughts and transformed them into the ideas I wished I had, the results of which have given me the greatest pleasure and satisfaction as I sit and contemplate my beautiful surroundings. I am very happy to recommend Vanessa Wood Interiors.”
Result Was Amazing
“I hired Vanessa in October 2017 to refurbish and design two rooms. The result was amazing and she has since completed most of my house. I had no idea my house could look so good and everyone that comes to the house comments on how fabulous it looks. Her ideas are original but she worked closely with myself and my husband to reach a result that we were all extremely happy with and believe me, this was not easy! Her finishing touches were very personal to us using some of our existing possessions and incorporating them into the overall design. We are extremely happy with the end result.”
“Being General Manager to a number of high profile properties has necessitated the overseeing and managing of many refurbishments as well as the project management and creation of totally new resorts. Past experiences have more often than not, created a stressful and demanding working environment. However, working alongside the Vanessa Wood Interiors team was an unexpected pleasure. They brought initiative, professionalism, enthusiasm and stunning creativity to our projects.”
“I came to know about Vanessa Wood through
Our house is an investment holiday house on the Gold Coast, and we needed to have that holiday feel, with a great look, on a limited budget. No small ask I know! But Vanessa saw that she was hitting all the requirements of what we wanted. The communication via email was perfect, she always sent me pictures and websites to view, mood boards etc., and she went out of her way to find a great look without the big price tags. Vanessa was always available day or night…. you can really see she loves what she does, and loves to deliver a great result!
Since our holiday house has been on the market, we have been receiving endless compliments about the decor….which I would love to take credit for, but indeed owe this all to Vanessa. She really achieved that homely, holiday
I definitely would use Vanessa again and would highly recommend her professional and creative service.”
“We have used the talented services of Vanessa Wood for well over 10 years (on 3 of our homes) and in that time she has displayed again and again an innate ability to interpret our particular style and indeed enhance it beyond what we could have ever imagined.
Her warm and friendly disposition make her an absolute pleasure to work with and the beautiful and unique suggestions she would present to us during our frequent meetings made our association not only exciting but a lot of fun.
We would recommend Vanessa’s services very highly to any potential client.”
“Vanessa really worked so well with both Chris and I, really understanding what we were looking for and when we weren’t sure she came up with some brilliant ideas. I often said to her during our collaboration ‘you’ve nailed it!’. As a result, I think we have furnished the house with amazing pieces that totally reflect our style and may I say we did not ‘break the bank’ in doing so. I saved so much time and energy as well as Vanessa is amazing at sourcing the perfect piece. I am so very happy to now genuinely recommend her as she is amazing at what she does!”
Smooth and Enjoyable Process
“Vanessa Wood was such an asset during the recent renovation of our 1924 home. The project involved a full interior update including new kitchen, floorings and furnishings. Her knowledge, expertise and contacts made for a smooth and enjoyable process. She listened to what we envisioned for our home and made it happen- even better than we imagined!”
“We found Vanessa Wood to be very creative. She is a person that just knows what goes with what to make a huge change in all the right ways to a place. We have an apartment overlooking the ocean and after many years of it being ‘smart enough’ for our purposes, we decided to make a huge change.
Vanessa came in took one look and could see potential we hadn’t dreamt of.
We now truly love it when we enter the front door we feel like we are entering another world. We love it.”
“I phoned Vanessa after trolling through websites for interior decorators on the Gold Coast. The work displayed on her site of before and after was so elegant and different. I had bought an old 2 bed, 2 bathroom holiday let apartment with absolute beach frontage on the 6th floor of a 40 floor building with magnificent views. I had no real hope that Vanessa would take me on as her work seemed so grand.
But she jumped at the chance and I turned the work of refurbishment, design and decoration over to her having agreed on a theme and colours and a budget. I didn’t want to see the apartment until it was finished. We consulted on occasions on particular pieces but most of the work was Vanessa’s magic.
When I saw the finished product, I sat on my new couch and cried. Such an exquisitely beautiful home full of lovely pieces that give me joy after 3 years now. Just what I needed a new start to a new life after the sudden death of my Husband. There was room for my own touches such as a collection of blue and white china in a French sideboard that Vanessa chose.
I cannot speak more highly of Vanessa, her professionalism in regard to the budget and quality of the build and decorating. I will be forever grateful to Vanessa for the beautiful home she created from a run-down old holiday let.”
“Vanessa and Peter did a terrific job of transforming our “tired” Noosa Apartment from an uninteresting and dated 1980’s relic into a modern and elegant apartment that remains practical and functional for its high annual occupancy. Feedback from all who have enjoyed staying in the apartment post refurbishment has been excellent.
Budget and tight schedule was adhered to and the quality of workmanship was excellent.”
A Whirlwind Of Creativity
“We hired Vanessa to help us renovate a 1970’s era unit in St Lucia Brisbane. The unit was badly in need of an update. Vanessa was a whirlwind of creativity and ideas from the moment she walked in the door. From selecting a fantastic colour palette, new bench top colours, advice on light fittings and suggested alterations to the kitchen, we could not have been happier with Vanessa’s input. Nothing was too much trouble for Vanessa who was very hands-on and extremely helpful. With Vanessa’s help, we have been able to transform a tired old unit into a highly desirable rental property and all without breaking the budget. We have no hesitation in recommending Vanessa’s services.”
