Living and Dining Room makeover

Barbara guided me through the process of updating my living and dining room by offering me choices of fabrics, art work, paint colour, light fixtures as well as window treatments. She is a pleasure to work with and is very organized. Barbara wants her clients to love their completed space and I do.

Thank you for your positive testimonial about my interior decorating and design services. It was a pleasure working with you and your husband to redesign your living room and dining room. What an incredible transformation it is.

I created a décor concept that is modern, inviting, warm and functional. I’m delighted that you love it all and ultimately selected the bold, blue, black & white graphic colour-block fabric and contemporary area rug along with the abstract painting that anchors the room.
My team and I: refinished your hardwood floors, fixed the plaster ceiling, painted the rooms and radiators, reupholstered your sofa and wingback chair and ottoman, recommended new furniture, installed new lighting, selected new artwork, installed new curtains and a roman shade and brought in a Peace Lily plant to bring some nature indoors and placed it on a 36”H stand for added dimension.
I hope you enjoy your new living and dining rooms for many years to come.

Bathroom Renovation & New Library with Murphy Bed

BNID helped us to design our bathroom and change one bedroom into a library with a murphy bed. Barbara was with us every step of the way from designing the layout, choosing fixtures and accessories, finding the right tiles for the bathroom, selecting paints and working with the company designing and supplying the Murphy bed. She always listened to our ideas and was full of interesting suggestions and options for our needs. We were very happy with her work and would use her again.

Thank you Maureen for your 10-Star Review about my interior design services. It was a pleasure working with you and your husband to design a modern bathroom for you, custom design the vanity and to optimize the new library space for hundreds of books and to also make it work as a guest room.

condo renovation

Barbara was amazing. Her immediate understanding of what i wanted to accomplish and my budget constraints. She was fabulously creative, yet totally patient with my input. Her demeanour was so comfortable.
The time flew and yet so much was accomplished
I would recommend her whole heartedly.

Ergonomic Interior Designer in Toronto

I had an ergonomic assessment for my home office done by Barbara. I am really greatful for her recommendations. One of the recommendations was to use a sit-and-stand desk which enabled me to comfortably work at my desk.
I definitely recommend her company and insights!

Kitchen and Foyer Renovation

Barbara helped me update and expand my condo kitchen. Countertops and additional storage cupboards blended perfectly with existing kitchen. She brought professional painters to make my kitchen look magazine worthy! She designed a large, beautiful cabinet for my foyer. Life changing! Large, white marble like tiles brighten the entryway and seem to never get particularly dirty. Barbaras attention to detail was astounding. I began with no ideas but working with Barbara, I began to see the potential and we worked very well together.
I highly recommend Barbara for any update/renovation.

Accessibility Design

We hired Nikka Design to support us with some home accessibility designs, and in particular a major bathroom accessibility renovation. We received some of the guidance we were looking for, but not what we needed or expected.

Nikka Design did help us explore options through discussion during the consultation. However, we expected, based on the agreement, follow-up of informed options and choices for our design dilemmas in writing. Unfortunately, we ended up with very few usable suggestions and some google links. We ended up doing the bulk of the research ourselves.

Nikka Designs were pleasant to interact with in advance of the consultation and during the consultation, and genuinely sought to offer value from their recommendations after the consultation. If you are starting from scratch, this company might be a good fit for your project if you are very clear about your expectations before the consultation.

I'm sorry that you weren't fully satisfied with the outcome of the 2-hr design consultation.
The goal of this initial meeting is to learn about your needs and wants for the bathroom reno, start exploring ideas, provide professional design recommendations, discuss some product options, a realistic budget and timelines.
It is not intended to, nor is there time to research product options or the scope to provide complete answers and informed options and choices.

I apologize again that I wasn't able to more clearly communicate these goals.

In our email correspondence and phone call prior to meeting, I did outline the purpose of the consultation:

"The consultation is the first step of the NIKKA DESIGN process. This 2-hr working session would provide you with a set of preliminary design recommendations as the foundation for you to move forward with your project.

The objective of our first meeting is to learn about your project scope and to provide you with some, if not all, of the following, time permitting:
-learn about your accessibility needs
-provide bathroom design recommendations that account for accessibility functionality
-provide hand-drawn sketch of bathroom layout, if layout changes; and/or sketches of other bathroom design features
-provide input on accessibility product options
-if time allows, other living-in-place recommendations for your home
-review of your questionnaire replies
-feedback to your ideas
-general estimate of potential project costs
-summary of my recommendations, emailed to you on the next business day.

The consultation is comprehensive and detailed."
