We have received a number of testimonials from Clients.

It was by chance that I was able to meet Elizabeth from European Colours,  she was consulting to one of my clients and by listening I soon saw that her knowledge, style and  clarity was exactly what I was looking for. We met numerous times over the following month and within an agreed time frame she was able to produce four new colour selection boards which Multidwell were able to release for 2014. Elizabeth was able to capture our requirements use our current suppliers and reproduce that on to very high quality displays boards. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth for any residential colour design works.

Building our modern luxury family home with views of beautiful Lane Cove National Park had been a dream for us, but when it came to choosing the correct colour coordination and building materials that would enhance and compliment the beautiful natural surrounds in which our home was built, we realised we needed a bit of help from a true professional.   Having worked with Elisabeth Van Dyk on a previous project and seeing the fabulous outcome, we had no hesitations to contact her again to help with our family home.    Elisabeth understood immediately the style of the modern home we were wanting and appreciated that we wanted to draw inspiration from the natural bush setting. Her experience, advice and guidance proved invaluable.   Elisabeth has a fantastic variety of recommended suppliers however never hesitated to hop in the car and come down to see suppliers we had suggested.  She came up with subtle ideas that helped us think outside our comfort zone to ultimately create a truly unique home.   Most importantly, she never lost sight of the look and feel that we wanted. With her relaxed, stylish and honest personality, Elisabeth was able to bring our vision to life. The endless compliments from neighbours, family and friends reinforce what a fantastic job she did!   We have recently contacted Elisabeth again to work on another project for us and we are very much looking forward to working with her again.

After approaching numerous consultants, Elisabeth was like a breath of fresh air. She developed our vague ideas and visions for our home into a true masterpiece. Elisabeth has a talent like no other, with an exceptional eye for colour and style, she was able to blend our themes of modern and art deco to create something truly elegant and unique.

Elisabeth went above and beyond our expectations, responding to our numerous calls and helping us to reach crucial decisions in a timely manner. Without a doubt, Elisabeth’s professionalism, experience and dedication is unrivalled. Each room was designed to reflect our differing personalities and yet seamlessly integrated with the rest of our home to create a truly stunning result.

We are constantly complimented on the décor and style of our home, and have highly recommended Elisabeth to all our friends and contacts in the construction industry. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and we are sure we will engage her services again in the near future.

Our home is now the welcome tranquil oasis we always dreamed of, and yet it is so much more… Thanks to Elisabeth! She patiently guided our caravan of ideas through the vast desert that is renovation and refurbishment, and without a single sandstorm!

Metaphors aside, Elisabeth has great up-to-the-minute taste, she will do the work or guide, whichever is preferred or required, is the consummate professional, and yet is so very personable. She is so easy to work with it is astonishing!

So take my recommendation: When you want a beautiful result, value for money, and an easy professional process… Engage Elisabeth!

As part of the refurbishment of our Apartments, we engaged the services of Elisabeth VanDyk of European Colours & Interiors, to create an interior and exterior colour scheme for our building.

We found Elisabeth to be professional and thorough in her approach to the project as well as most consultative when dealing with a diversity of views.  Her presentation of the schemes provided a clear rationale for the colour choices and we were very pleased with the outcome.

We highly recommend Elisabeth VanDyk to anyone wishing to engage a Colour Consultant.

Elisabeth is a great listener, she has a talent for transforming a vague overarching concept into a fluid framework of consistent choices for her client, she took me through an evolution of my home’s living space. Elisabeth‘s skill and imagination gave me the confidence to be more daring, I didn’t have to play safe, Elisabeth was there with the right advice and support.

Elisabeth’s professional Contacts and their particular specialized skills and advice enhanced the decisions I’d made with Elisabeth.  The final design of the rug concepts, the pile, the fibre types and the colour mixes, without Elisabeth and her Contact the result would never have been anything like what was achieved, all in full consultation with me, it was fun working with professionals.

I love the  refurbished single seater lounge chairs, in my family for 60 years,  I explained in concept  to Elisabeth what I thought I’d like,  she presented her  detailed ideas including  fabric choices, they exceeded my expectations. Elisabeth’s Contact skilfully refurbished to the very highest standard adding details only a skilled professional who loves their craft would undertake.

Every person who walks through my front door for the first time is wide eyed and  just walks past me into the space, the blend of contemporary and art deco is exactly what I wanted but it has been executed way beyond anything I would have thought possible, its mine and it feels 100% like mine.

Thank you Elisabeth.

A couple of years ago, when overwhelmed with trying to choose interior paint colours for my new apartment, I was referred to Elisabeth through the Dulux Colour Consultancy service. I had a very vague brief of what I wanted, but Elisabeth created a colour scheme that I’ve been so happy with.

This year I decided to update my furniture and decor. Having had such a great experience last time, I had no hesitation in engaging Elisabeth again to help me. Together we came up with a plan of the styles, sizes and colours to look for as I gradually update my furniture over the next few months. With Elisabeth’s clear instructions on hand, shopping for homewares has gone from stressful and frustrating to productive and more importantly fun!

I would highly recommend Elisabeth to anyone like me who has ever bought home a new cushion, throw, or duvet cover, known that it wasn’t quite right, but didn’t know why! Her expert help means you’ll save time and money in buying only the things that are really going to work – and create the beautiful home that you’ve been dreaming of!





– Exceptional Service received from Liz VanDyk

Dear Dulux,

I wanted to bring to your attention the exceptional assistance provided by one of your Colour Consultants Liz. She provided invaluable assistance in advising on internal and external colours for a house we just completed renovating.

We came to Liz with very limited idea as to what we wanted in terms of internal and external colour. Liz outlined various options for us to consider which quickly helped us form a view and make decisions we have been very pleased with. She was extremely knowledgeable of the Dulux product range and factors we should consider, and made herself available to view other materials we were using (tiles, carpet etc).

Liz was even so helpful to take a call when we were having a moment of indecision and she quickly assisted in a final decision.

She was a pleasure to deal with and is a great asset to your team. We look forward to working with Liz again in the future. We have attached a before and after photo of the outside transformation.

Kind regards

Maria & Martin,


So many people have stopped me in the street, asking me which colours my house is painted in as it looks fabulous!
