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.

exterior roof and gutter colour as well as design advice on the interior

Irene took the time to review shingle colour display boards and brought gutter colour samples to make the process easier. With her great eye for colour, we were able to finally make colour choices that worked for our situation. She also advised on interior colours and new furniture layout to maximize space, easy traffic flow and kept our budget in mind.
This is the second time we have used Irene's services and we would not hesitate to contact her again in the future for other home projects.

Exterior Paint Selection

We had the opportunity to work with Irene through the painting company (Pro-Rise Painting) that we had chosen. Irene was extremely helpful and spent time listening to us, questioning us about our ideas and ultimately giving us the colour scheme we love. Choosing colours is daunting to me, Irene made it easy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends.

Colour Consultations

We worked with Irene on two different occasions this past year. She made our life very easy by helping our clients choose the correct colours for their interior and exterior painting. Her experience and great personality made the process flow very smoothly. We will definitely use her services again in the future!

Bathroom renovation

Irene has helped me over the past 12 years with paint choices, tile, custom furniture choices and recently plans for a bathroom renovation. Irene is very knowledgeable and is very good with colour and space planning. She really knows how to put things together. When Irene is involved in any of my projects I feel much more confident and less stressed. Irene has a wealth of information that she seems to enjoy sharing at her visits which is invaluable. I really enjoy working with her and have recommended her to many family and friends over the years.

Staging

Irene Fraser staged a condo I had listed. It looked fantastic. The place sold in less than a week! I would definitely recommend Design Happens for staging and interior design. Irene is very knowledgeable about construction as well as design. Not a fluffy designer by any means. She is a professional through and through. I highly recommend her for any sort of interior design be it residential or commercial.

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!!!!
