What a year!! Wrapping up our final journal for the year...
2021 has been a year filled with multiple opportunities and new for the Vanity by Design team. As the year comes to a close, we wanted to take the time to look back on all that has happened. From launching new products, announcing exciting giveaways along with the amazing customers and teams we have collaborated with. We can’t thank you enough!
BATHROOMS AND TRENDS
We always love seeing our products in the spaces that you have created in your homes! This year our amazing clients (you guys) went above and beyond creating beautiful and trendy bathroom spaces.
Here is some of our favourite creations and renovations from the year that was, 2021:
We collaborated with the incredible team at @blokdesignco to assist them in creating their dreamy Brisbane office bathrooms. The spaces feature our Mac 1500 Single Natural wall hung vanities, paired to perfection with our Nero Brushed gold tapware and wastes.
Keeping up with the current trends, they added gorgeous coloured basins from Nood Co; "The Pill Basin is the perfect designer finish for the modern bathroom. With sleek rounded edges and ultra-fine concrete walls, this contemporary concrete sink is the showpiece to elevate your space" - Nood Co.
Lisa, the owner and incredible design guru behind @elleandjay321 Instagram, has also kept up with the stylish 2021 trends. Adding a brushed gold rain shower head over her stunning bath! Rain showers were definitely a must in everyone’s bathrooms this year. We think this trend will definitely stay on throughout 2022!
Dark statement walls and moody spaces were also very popular this year. Natalie Doss has done a stunning job of incorporating this look into her bathrooms - the grey tiles have a striking sleek and modern look, perfectly paired with our Mac Wall Hung Japan Black vanity.
Shower benches are another feature that we saw become more popular as the year went on. We have seen many different sizes and styles of shower bench seats, BUT we had a fav... This elegant feature seat by @the_boat_haus topped our fav bathroom trend this year! Will these stick around in 2022?
NEW FEATURES AND PRODUCTS
This year we launched some gorgeous new products. Two new vanities were added to our ever-growing collection - the Airlie and Victoria.
Our Airlie is a wall hung unit with a VJ panel profile, a reflection of farmhouse meets modern-coastal style. Paired to perfection with the 'Circ Semi Circle Pull Handles' by Touch Handles in brushed nickel or brushed gold. The Airlie is the perfect finishing touch to any contemporary or traditional bathroom.
The Victoria Vanity is inspired by the stunning home that our brother company Kerdic have recently finished renovating. Located on Victoria Avenue in Chelmer QLD. The stunning historic 1905 Queenslander home features the Victoria vanities.
We also introduced custom Dulux colours to our cabinetry range. We now offer endless colour possibilities! You now have the opportunity to truly personalise your bathroom and/or keep up with any cabinet trend!

Another amazing addition feature added this year was Australia Wide Shipping. This exciting feature now allows customers Australia wide to access our vanities!
We were extremely lucky to be featured in every one of Adore magazine issues this year. Which included the Heritage Edition, Winter Issue, Boho At Home and the Coastal Edition.

DOING OUR BIT
Environmental awareness is at the core of our company, Vanity by Design, and trickles down into our shipping, materials, and products. With every decision, every action we consciously think about our own impact on the earth. As a company with the ability to empower positive change, we aim to help maintain and sustain green practises anywhere possible.
We have not only become an official supporter for one of our fav charities (Take 3 for the Sea) but we have also changed our sample packaging bags which are now compostable!
We were also proud to announce that we are the major sponsor for the Souths Logan Magpies Intrust Super Cup team for 2022-23!
The Intrust Super Cup Competition is the highest level of Rugby League Competition in Queensland. Many Intrust Super Cup players will also play for NRL teams, with Souths Logan Magpies being affiliated with the Brisbane Broncos (one of our favourite teams of course!)
We also collaborated with some amazing designers and teams including the lovely Eleanor Pendleton with her Coastal renovation and the gorgeous ladies from the Reno Gals with their Reno in Brisbane. Through these collabs we were able to see our products in so many different and unique spaces. These opportunities truly have helped our VBD community grow!
This year, while difficulties were definitely present, we have achieved so much as a whole and are extremely proud of our VBD team and the year that was 2021!
We are forever grateful to always have you, our loyal customers, alongside us, every step of the way.
We hope you have an amazing holiday! BRING ON 2022!!
Love the VBD Team xx
