Strong recommendation for Design Happens

Design Happens was such a fantastic help with an update/refresh to our living room. They listened to what we wanted, worked within our budget, offered unique ideas, recommended trusted local businesses and accompanied us to pick out flooring and paint (with excellent results). Design Happens went above and beyond to answer our ongoing questions. Extremely reasonable rates for a professional with so much design experience.

Outdoor paint consultation

Irene did a fantastic job advising how to improve the curb appeal of our place. Not only did we chose new color but also where the color was applied which really helped change the whole look of the exterior. Extremely professional and thorough and had a good manner with coaching her clients. Would highly recommend.

restoration/renovation

I met Irene through Benjamin Moore pain company. She arrived just in time to help with choosing the colours for my home. After I explained what I waned, it took her 1 minute to suggest 2 options, both of which were absolutely perfect. Her ability to choose colour is stellar. She also assisted me with the colour of my floors and carpet which I love. She also assisted me with some ideas for planning a new kitchen. She was extremely helpful in many ways. She is sincere, fair, and kind. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Irene for your assistance and support.

Interior & Exterior Color Consultations

As a manager of a painting company it is always my pleasure to leave my customers in the hands of design happens.
Why do we refer a designer? Because most painters/people do not understand colours and undertones like designers.
This team of designers have a great eye for attention to detail and are exceptionally helpful.

In addition to color and design consultations we have referred design happens to help with blinds and garden designs.

Very Impressed every time!!!

Designer, colour consultant

Irene of Design Happens was very highly recommended to us by an owner in our Strata complex whose previous Heritage Home's exterior she had decorated to very high acclaim.

We are a Strata of more than 100 single storey homes preparing for exterior painting & wanting to make some gentle change acceptable to our homeowners, particularly those who wanted little, if any, change. Enter Irene who did not disappoint. Irene has an excellent eye for and understanding of colour; very confident in her choices; up to date-but
does not insist on current trends; understands owners' fear of change and giving owners what it is that THEY want & willing to answer numerous questions immediately they are asked. In very short order
Irene came up with suggested colour palettes with explanation of why they would work for us: one of which hit the nail on the head!
If you are looking for an excellent designer/decorator, I happily recommend Irene who you will find capable; amiable; highly educated -including a BA in Interior Design & Liberal Arts; one who will make recommendations of timeless colour choices to suit your needs. I know I will be calling Irene of Design Happens when I again want to decorate my home.

Picking paint colours for our home.

I was introduced to Irene through Benjamin Moore Paints when I was choosing paint colours for our home. Irene was invaluable in this process. Her knowledge and expertise was SO appreciated. Many years have past and we still love the colours she chose.
Irene took the time to explain how the undertones in paint colours and the lighting, both natural and artificial, can affect how the selected colours look in your space.
I highly recommend Irene if you are painting or redecorating your home or workplace. Her friendly and professional attitude and expertise sets your mind at easy and is greatly appreciated. Irene took the time to really listen to the vision I had for our space. She patiently walked me through, answered all my questions and took the guess work out of the whole process. Most of all, she prevented the mistakes, frustration and extra expense that I would have experienced trying to do this on my own. Hiring Irene of Design Happens, was the best money we spent while renovating our home!
We have called on Irene a number of times over the years and she has always been prompt to return our calls and to offer assistance.
There are a small number of professionals that we rely on and would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat. Irene of Design Happens is definitely one of those people!

Paint Colors and Furniture consulting

I would certainly highly recommend 'Design Happens'.
The paint colors that were recommended were so fantastic! When doing my in-home consultation, the lighting, size of room and consideration for my own preferences were all addressed!
As for furniture size and placement, the same wonderful consideration was given.
I found Irene to be very professional and warm as well as honest and with up to date knowledge of current trends in design.
Eileen was also very professional and personable!
A truly great experience!

Exterior Renovation

We were renovating the exterior of our house and Irene helped us pick the colors. She is absolutely amazing. She knew exactly what we wanted and she made a couple trips out to ensure we were still happy with our choices. She is very good at what she does and you just have to trust what she says. I will definitely be using her again for future projects

Design Advice on Bathroom Renovation

We were renovating our bathroom and hit a point where we needed assistance with paint colour, backsplash tiles, and wall tile organization. After calling Irene for help she quickly pulled it all together for us and was able to guide us with perfect recommendations. We love the look of our bathroom and are very pleased with the end result. Irene is a very lovely lady, easy to talk to and extremely knowledgable. She helped us look at colours in ways we had never considered. She was always on time with our appointments and followed up many times to offer further assistance in order to make sure we were satisfied. We highly recommend Irene at Design Happens.

Exterior Paint Colour

Irene's services were included in our home's exterior painting project. She helped us choose the paint colours and we are very pleased with the results. Irene is very personable and takes the time to teach you about how colours work together and point out the different undertones. Irene has even dropped by on her own to assist with gutter colours and a few interior colour issues as well. Based on our experience I would not hesitate to refer Irene to anybody requiring assistance with colour choices.
