Since we purchased our home 10 years ago, I cannot recall a year where we didn’t undertake some form of renovation. A few of these projects were major, others not so much. Some we were happy with, others left something to be desired, and with those we opted for a redo shortly after completion. I often thought of engaging a designer but never did. Instead, we wasted thousands of dollars on redo’s of renovations themselves, furniture replacement, etc. We made very costly mistakes by not having the necessary experience and imagination to ensure our efforts were not in vain and our investment was sound. However, last year, when I was particularly baffled with how to remodel one particular room, I finally decided to make the leap. I reviewed Home Stars and found Margarida (Chic Décor). Am I ever glad I did. My original thoughts for the room involved hefty renovations – adding walls, moving windows, etc. It would have been a small fortune. However, after assessing the room and our options, she presented a very unique design that addressed all of my challenges. Not only did she make the room look fantastic (design, colour, furniture, accessories), she saved me an incredible amount of money. I also asked Margarida to help me decide on a colour for my new front door. The one she suggested was one I never would have visualized for my home, but I decided to take her advice given the amazing work she had already done for me. Am I ever glad I did. It is not unusual for strangers to ring my doorbell to find out who installed my gorgeous door. Margarida doesn’t work alone. She makes it easy to bring her designs to life by partnering with a wide array of talented professionals who are highly competent, courteous and so much a pleasure to work with. These days I’m actually sad to see a project end because I will simply miss working with these wonderful people – I guess it’s time for the next renovation!!! I am so thrilled to have found Margarida. She has had such a positive impact on our home and, as a result, our lives. Thank you Margarida. Monica
