My boyfriend and I spent a year going to local home retail stores trying to work with different retail designers in order to redesign our kitchen and livingroom space. So many of the retail outlets were just concerned with designing us a kitchen not a whole kitchen/livingroom space. Plus we just didn't find "The One" that we were looking for. Finally I decided to call Southam Design and it was the best decision that I could have made. Penny met with us and understood what we were looking for immediately and how to get us there. The very first interation of her kitchen/livingroom design gave us the "WOW!!" that we were looking for. My boyfriend and I worked with Penny and her team to pick out everything from the wall colour, cabinet doors, to the style and colour of the sofa fabric. It was such a fun experience! Penny and I even had a shopping date at the furniture store! The whole team was very accomodating and knowledgeable. I can't say enough wonderful things about Penny and her team at Southam Design. I would use their services again in my next home without a doubt!!
