Testimonials

I would like to thank Karen and her team – they were a pleasure to work with. I was delighted with the end result and it all came in on budget.
Paula Forrest, Barforth Hall Fit Farm
I have used Vanilla Bay Interior Design for a couple of projects at our hotel. The service from Karen has always been friendly yet professional and the finished project was just how we wanted it to look. Karen’s eye for design and approachable nature means that Vanilla Bay Interior Design is a company that I have enjoyed working with in order to create areas within the hotel which are not only practical but look stunning too.
Rachel Swain, Owner of Walworth Castle Hotel
We approached Karen at Vanilla Bay to help us do a makeover of one of our Gold Award winning holiday cottages. We had installed a gorgeous four poster bed and a brand new contemporary kitchen so we needed an interior design scheme which would complement these and create a wow factor for our guests. Karen interpreted our brief superbly and chose a fabulous colour scheme with sumptuous fabrics and wallpaper to match. Prices were also very reasonable considering the quality. The end result is fantastic – our guests absolutely love the new look cottage and our bookings have increased significantly. We are currently renovating a five bedroom holiday cottage and have asked Karen to manage the whole interior design brief. We can’t wait to see the results! We would highly recommend Karen and Vanilla Bay to bring the wow factor to any interior design project.

I am delighted with the curtains. Thank you for your time, trouble and expertise in sorting out a selection of fabrics for me to choose from. Thank you also for suggestions made regarding the valance.
The overall effect is exactly what I was looking for.

I asked Karen to help me with my new house, I had just moved in and lacked inspiration on how to furnish both my lounge and dining room. After the initial meeting she came back with some great ideas and some amazing furniture and soft furnishing ideas that I would not have had access to myself. She dealt with the ordering and personally brought them to the house and made sure they were right for the room. I will definitely be using her again and would highly recommend, I am very pleased with the results.
