Colour expert

I have used Irene to help me with colour choices for the interior of our home on two occasions and each time felt the money was well spent. it’s a huge decision and expense to paint your walls and something you have to live with for several years. Each time Irene has come through with exactly the right tones to complement our decor and make our home a warm and inviting environment. Thanks so much!!!!

Colour consultation, update house design, window covers

Irene is a professional at what she and her team did for my house.
She choose best colour. Every time I step in my house I am happy about it. The lights and furnitures she recommended was perfect for my taste. It was really delightful to work with her. I would happily recommend Irene to anyone who are looking for new look of their house.

Colour Scheme

I originally meet Irene through Benjamin Moore they had highly recommended her and I have since also recommended Design Happens. Irene is a great lady with a fantastic sense of what works and what looks great. I have spoke with some of her clients and they all love to work with her. Irene certainly puts clients first and works with what they want. I have no problem recommending Irene to people who want a hands on first class service with their home renovations.

A great crew

We had never gone through a design team before. Irene and Eileen were great to work with. We wanted to update and improve upon our window blinds, paint, light fixtures, and furniture. They both were unpretentious, and helped us work with what we already had. Irene chose beautiful colors for us. Eileen was delightful - always prompt with communications and was excellent at coordinating all the trades people (who were great). They gave us great tips about purchasing decor, and even sent pictures of furniture and decor they had come across while in decor stores. Above all, these are two very nice ladies and we would definitely go through them again.

Color consultation

I have consulted Irene many times over the years to help me choose the right paint colors for my kitchen, dining room, living room and entry way. Her eye for color is amazing. She suggested colors that I never would have considered and they were perfect. I most recently called on her to help choose the colors for the exterior of our house. It was going be a major investment and I wanted it to look great. The colors she suggested were AMAZING and everyone in the neighborhood compliments us on how modern and updated the house looks. I highly recommend calling Irene to help you with your design projects. Thank Irene!! I love the way my house looks!

Colour Consulation and Bathroom Renovation

I have worked with Irene on several occasions including colour consultations and, most recently, bathroom renovations. She has an exceptional eye for design! Her extensive knowledge and experience is evident when it comes to her countless ideas and suggestions. She takes the time to understand your style and bases her recommendations on what best suits your space. I love Irene's responsiveness and find her a joy to partner with on projects both large and small in size.

Kitchen renovation - outstanding!

Irene is exceptional and working with her was the most pleasant and enjoyable experience I've had for quite some time. She had amazing input for us for our kitchen redesign, including many money-saving tips that were much appreciated. She went above and beyond what we expected and can honestly say that we'll work with her again for every future project without hesitation. Thank you Irene!!!
