Lara has helped me with two different projects. Professional, efficient, responsive, and easy to work with, Lara creatively translated my vague ideas into lovely designs beyond my hopes and expectations.
Lara was respectful of my budgets, and sourced a few options for furniture, rugs, and accessories so I could make thoughtful decisions.
I like her no-nonsense approach! Lara listened to my ideas but added her expertise and awareness of trends, and most importantly, her opinions (which I value).
I'm thrilled with my new renovations! I thoroughly enjoyes working with Lara and look forward to the next project.

Thanks Lara. The doors and window went in on Friday. On our own, both Jeff and I would have chosen the darker exterior colour, but we went with your recommendation of matching the siding, and I love the result! You're worth every penny!

This was our second major renovation with Lara at the helm, and once again, she was able to bring a bunch of great design ideas (mostly hers) to life. The end result is a reflection of her vision, creativity, attention to detail, and ability to fully understand what appeals to us.
Our trust in Lara’s project management skills allowed us to focus on more of the fun stuff, knowing that the finer details were in good hands. What a nice renovation luxury to have.
If there’s a third renovation in our future, I’m certain that we’ll want to put the reins back in Lara’s hands and spoil ourselves yet again.

"Lara is one of the most brilliant, creative and responsive designers that I have ever worked with. Her innovation, energy and fresh ideas transformed our bathroom into the most beautiful, serene room in our home! Thanks Lara. We look forward to working with you again some day soon."
“Working with Lara on the design for our bathroom renovation was a pleasure. She took time to ask all the right questions. She determined what features in a bathroom were most important to us. She also made terrific suggestions that we had not thought of. Our renovation has been complete for a year now, but the novelty of our spa-like space has yet to wear off!”
Working with Lara to update our living room was a joy. She immediately understood our tastes, was extremely efficient and brought colours, textures and design strategy together to formulate a beautiful, formal yet cozy and inviting living room. Her ability to see the finished product before it's finished is phenomenal. Her attention to detail, second to none. It was exciting watching it all come together. Thanks Lara!!
Lara's attention to detail is truly second to none! She understands that space can be transformed to meet the unique and individual needs and desires of those living within it. Her ability to unite colour, fabrics, lighting, texture and furniture is an innate ability, which is culminated into a room/space that one never wants to leave. Secondly, having worked with Lara was most enjoyable, as her professional, yet personable nature was consistent and genuine. I always knew that our planning would be a fun and productive time. I look forward to working with Lara again.
“Lara was extremely helpful in choosing great paint colours and fabrics for our new condo. She was highly professional, knowledgeable about environmentally friendly products, budget-conscious, and always went the extra mile to make sure the end result was what we wanted and needed. I highly recommend her work.”
You never know who you’ll meet on a Mediterranean cruise, but we never would have guessed an award-winning designer who only lived half an hour away from us in Canada. That’s why, upon moving into our new-to-us condo, we didn’t even have to think about who we’d ask to help us with our design.
Lara was attentive and patient, listening to us throw every idea we’d ever had at her about our space. She took notes and she took measurements. She smiled and nodded and you could tell she was processing every piece of information we were sharing.
We had a rough plan in mind and described that to her in detail. She asked a few more questions, then announced she had work to do. She said she’d provide us with a few options to consider.
The first design she shared was based on our neophyte space planning ideas. It was good but still needed some changes. Then, drumroll please, she presented us with what she would do with the space. I think at first, we were both a little shocked as it was so completely different than anything we’d ever imagined. As the minutes ticked away, the design grew on us more and more until we decided it was the only way we could go.
We can’t thank Lara enough for her ideas, her professionalism and her patience. We will definitely be using her again for any future projects.
