Barbara arrived at my house on time. She was pleasant and professional. Barbara took the time before our face-to-face to get to know me and what I was hoping to achieve with the look and feel of my house. We spoke again about my hopes when we met which was helpful as our telephone conversation spurred me to really think about what I wanted. I was impressed with how she was able to give me Ideas for my house when she had never seen it. Barbara certainly has great skill in visualizing the potential of a space.
Thank you Daniela for your glowing review. I'm happy that you found my design consultation helpful. It's always a delight to work with homeowners like yourself.
Barbara came into a home visit with us on very short notice and made great use of the time to help us visualize how we could utilize the spaces to our specific requirements. Barbara was professional, friendly and confident. She spoke up with ideas that we had not considered and we considered our time with her very worthwhile.
Thank you for your kind testimonial Anna. I'm delighted to have had the opportunity to help you. I wish you the best with the transformation of your new home.

Barbara was extremely helpful. She spent 2 hrs with us at a Tile Store. She helped us coordinate tile for floors, walls and a back splash. She provided guidance for wall colours and was very respectful of our vision and our budget .

Nikka Design was hired to decorate a large holiday tree. Barbara’s professional approach to the project was very impressive. She prepared a quote that covered the complete scope, including sourcing, purchasing, delivery, the installation of lights and ornaments. She even included the option of a follow-up visit the first week of January to tear it all down and pack and label the decorations in storage bins. All timelines were met, the tree looked fabulous and Barbara was a delight to work with.
Thank you Jeanette for your generous compliments of my decorating skills and professional services. It was a pleasure to work with you.

Thank you Mohamed for your review of my design and decorating services. It was a pleasure to work with you. I hope you enjoy your new living room for many years to come.
"We underwent a major renovation to a century home that lasted nearly 8 months. The work included gutting 2 bathrooms and the master bedroom, rewiring the electricity, sanding floors on 2 levels, and repairing some structural problems that were uncovered during the renovation.
We stayed in the house throughout this time which added additional stress to the process. We found the whole experience rather daunting.
Barbara was wonderful.
She worked with us every step of the way and helped us get through the myriad of tough decisions that otherwise would have been overwhelming.
We found her to be very flexible and helpful in bringing design ideas together that would satisfy our diverse tastes. At the end of it all, we ended up with results that we were really thrilled with. I highly recommend Barbara and NIKKA DESIGN." - L & K.
I'm so happy for you both that you're thrilled with the results. It was a delight for me to help you create new beautiful and functional living areas and master ensuite. I hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
Barbara helped us to put together the living/dining room area in a newly built house that we purchased. We were pretty much starting from scratch and didn't really know where to start to make the room feel like home.
Through her process, she very quickly got a feel for our design tastes and was able to show us a number of colour combinations and materials that were perfect for us. She helped out with making the best use out the layout of the space - something my husband I could not agree on before Barbara found options that neither of us had the eye to see.
After deciding on colour combinations (we used two different tones in the space) window treatments, lighting, and accessories; Barbara made it all happen. She confirmed materials and sizing, and coordinated ordering, delivery and installation. It truly saved a lot of time and frustration.
Barbara is also an eco-friendly designer. All the materials, fabrics and paints that she recommends in her work are environmentally-friendly. We love the room and loved the process.
Inga, thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing testimonial for my work! It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of helping you and your husband decorate your new house and help turn it into a "home" for you both.
Barbara recently completed a Living and Dining Room Redecoration for us. She incorporated a couple of pieces that we wished to keep and directed us to the remaining eclectic choices that achieved the more contemporary look we wanted. She recommended some beautiful wall paper and a glimmering dining room light fixture that sparkles the whole room. The colours chosen for all the items are subdued and yet impactful. She connected us with the required trades and supervised the work from start to finish. Her work was timely and on budget. Will look forward to our next project with her.
Thank you for supporting NIKKA DESIGN with your lovely testimonial. I enjoyed working with you on your interior decorating project to help you achieve your desired outcome. I hope you enjoy your rooms for many years to come.
