We hired Claire to help us integrate a recently dry walled central fireplace into our open concept kitchen and family room area. She gave us excellent advice, not only on the fireplace, but also on other elements of our home, and helped to source the materials and resources needed to complete the project in keeping with our existing decor. She was knowledgeable, helpful, patient, and respectful throughout the process. We are thrilled with the results and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

Claire is a real professional as well as being very personable. Her knowledge of design and colour is amazing! Not only has she helped me with two of my own homes, but my clients have been thoroughly pleased with the results of her work. She's a real pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her.

I hired Claire for consultation on an extensive house renovation. She assisted with floor plans, paint/floor finishes, and kitchen cabinet/counter selections. Claire is professional, knowledgeable, very hard working, and easy to work with. She is focused on providing a finished product that suits the individual need and style of the client. I am extremely pleased with Claire's assistance on this project.

Worked with Claire for layout options for out the mainfloor (living room, dining room, kitchen area) of our small home. Claire took into consideration our wish list and challenges associated with a smaller home and came up with options for "best fit" and design incorporating décor and space savings options to make a layout that would work well with our growing family.
Claire was personable and easy to work with and presented our design including design options to consider into our final plan. We were very satisfied working with Claire and would recommend her to those seeking support with design layouts!

Our living room was tired look gin and a little old fashioned. We knew we needed to change this but quite frankly didn't know where to start. We hired Claire to help us with this project. She managed to revitalize the room changing paint color and generally working towards a brighter living area. Some new furniture was incorporated along with reupholstering our antique chairs and adding new drapery. At our request some of our antique pieces and meaningful artwork were blended into the room along with some more modern pieces. Claire was very easy to work with. She always listened to our viewpoints, worked efficiently at all times, was prompt and quick to inform us of any delays. I highly recommend Claire to undertake any interior decorating services whether it be a decorating consultation or total involvement in a design project from start to finish.

We brought Claire in to help us design our main floor renovation including powder room and kids bathroom on the second floor. It was a very overwhelming task to contemplate. She helped us to determine the art of the possible. She helped us to bring to life our vision with her 3D renderings. She asked pertinent questions about how we used the space and what bugged us most about the current space and how often the things that bugged us really happened. A couple of times a year might not make the expense of taking down an additional wall worthwhile, instead let’s widen the opening to that area to make it feel more roomy. After all the plans were done Claire was the key to helping to navigate the seemingly endless list of choices to be made. Her calm and practical demeanor was essential to getting through it all with not nearly the pain that was anticipated. She made key suggestions when we became stuck and showed alternatives always keeping in mind our style. Everything is looking fantastic and we are excited to come to the end of the work. She kept coaching when the work seemed like it would never end, it will all be worth it when it is finished, we can now see the finish line and she was right.

My husband and I met Claire as we began our project to finish our basement. With over 3000 sq. ft of space we knew we needed help designing and implementing a plan. Aside from being friendly and approachable, Claire listened to our ideas and concepts and quickly got a sense for our style. Her design accurately portrayed the "vibe" and "feel" we wanted to create in this space and made our vision come to life in her 3-D renderings. Immediately we knew Claire would be perfect for this project.
Our project had some very unique, custom pieces and without Claire's expertise and advice I would have been overwhelmed. From choosing paint colours and finishes, finding the right furniture and accent pieces, to spending time shopping - Claire does it all! She has gone above and beyond with our project and we couldn't be happier! There is no doubt in our minds that the finished space we love now could not have been done without her.

I was overwhelmed with the number of decisions that had to be made in the renovation of the kitchen and main floor . Claire was able to make it more manageable by prioritizing them and then assisting with sourcing materials. Claire always had a positive attitude, even when having to allay my anxiety for the 10th time! It was a true pleasure working with her. Claire was more interested in helping me define and realize my vision than in imposing her own design esthetic. The end result is extremely satisfying.

We are renovating a house, opening up the main floor to create an open concept. Updating the family room and the bedrooms and renovating the ensuite bathroom.
Claire came and looked around, listened to what our vision was. She then took all the information necessary and came back to us with plans that took all our ideas and some of her own and incorporated them into our dream home. Renovations are under way and we're so excited to see them come to life!
Claire was helpful, courteous and accessible at all times to bounce ideas off of. She kept us focused on the task at hand. Gave us great ideas when we were unsure of what to do with certain rooms. Simply put she took a lot of stress and worry out of the planning stage.
We are so happy to have met and worked with Claire. She was a wonderful resource to have and should any further projects come up we will definitely call on her to assist
