“I engaged Erica Fanning as a result of a personal recommendation to provide me with a complete design, installation and project-management service for the furnishing and fitting-out of my new apartment in Noosa Heads. The project also included considerable contact services including carpentry, blind- and curtain-making and fitting and AV procurement and installation. As I am resident in Hong Kong, I was wholly reliant on Erica’s procurement, installation and project-management skills.
I can say without exception that Erica did a wonderful job for me.
She provided excellent design consultancy skills while being responsive (but not uncritically) to my own design aesthetic. She offered imaginative and creative solutions to design problems.
Her sourcing and procurement skills were incomparable. It took a matter of a mere few weeks for Erica to complete the procurement, delivery and installation of the furnishing and fitting-out of my whole apartment, with the exception of a few items with long lead-times.
She engaged specialist contractors of the highest standard for all contract works. The quality of all finished works (bookcases, shelving, cupboards, curtains, blinds, electrical and AV) is exceptional. Her project management of the contractors was faultless. All of them delivered on time and to specification.
Best of all, I would add that Erica is a complete joy to work with. She is full of enthusiasm, conscientious, diligent and hard-working. She was immediately responsive to all my comments, questions and requests, which was very important to me in dealing at a distance.
I have no hesitation in recommending Erica without qualification.

“Erica, we would like to say thanks to you and say how happy we are with the result you achieved in our apartment. It looks great and the comments from all our friends so far have been nothing short of amazing.
We would have no hesitation in recommending you and your undoubted talents to anyone. You were a pleasure to deal with and listened to our ideas and the look we wanted to try and achieve and the professional manner in which you organised things to be done and coordinated the trades people made our lives a lot easier.
We look forward to working with you again. Thanks once again .

“Erica worked on our beach house on the Sunshine Coast for five months at the end of 2014/beginning 2015.
I could not have asked for a better working relationship with a designer. Erica went out of her way to make the design process the most seamless and easiest it could be. From coming to our house in Brisbane on a Saturday with fabric samples, to coming up swiftly with design concepts and responding promptly to emails and queries, to meeting with tradespeople at our beach house, she made the entire decorating process a dream.
Importantly, she has a businesswoman’s understanding of budgets and we did not go one cent over the agreed price.
It goes without saying that she has a wonderful design eye and her conceptualisation for our house has transformed it into a beautiful, restful place of great style. We are thrilled with the results.
I would not hesitate to recommend Erica to anyone.”

“Erica is my savior! Room after room she consistently over-delivered on the brief. Living in the NSW Riverina, interior designers are few and far between. Not letting this get me down, I researched my little heart out and eventually decided to engage Erica to deliver e-decorating services for numerous spaces in our home. I was not disappointed…
Some rooms were empty and needed absolutely everything new, while other rooms already had a mismatch of pieces collected throughout our life that Erica had to work with. Never in a million years would we have ended up with the home we now have if I was left to my own devices! Erica has delivered my family a beautiful and importantly functional home.
Would I recommend Erica? The truth is, I recommend Erica all the time!”
I recently had two units decorated by Erica Fanning Interiors, a rental unit in Brisbane and my home in Sydney. I must say that I am delighted with both. In the planning stages Erica worked extremely hard to ensure that I was satisfied with the proposed design and the final outcome, despite many changes along the way.
I have worked with Erica on a number of occasions, and remain impressed with her vision, communication and commitment to her clients. I am very pleased to recommend her services.
“I was in the initial stages of renovating my dental clinical space when I first met Erica. I found her to be very friendly, easy going, and I felt we were on the same wavelength. When I found out she was an interior designer, I felt comfortable in seeking her input, even though she specialised predominantly in living spaces.
My brief to Erica was that I wanted to create a treatment area which was modern, relaxing and non-threatening. Quite a challenge for a dental surgery ! Erica came up with some great colour schemes, thoughts for artwork and complementary touches which not only met my brief, but exceeded my expectations.
She always met deadlines, and responded quickly to any feedback and communication. She has great contacts and suppliers. She was friendly, accommodating, and very professional – a pleasure to work with.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Erica Fanning for any domestic or commercial interior decorating services.”
