"Debbie was an inspiration to work with. She was dedicated, service oriented and extremely pleasant. She showed her respect by always being on time and following through on what she promised to do. Her enthusiasm and boundless energy was contagious. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our renovations and have had lots of compliments on the new look. Thank you Debbie for a job well done. You definitely are part of our family now." Chuck and Judy Greig, Vernon
"It was a real treat to have Debbie in our home for the day! The care to detail was impressive - from placement of books by title, size and angles on the bookshelves, to colour combinations and accents of paintings, pottery and ornaments. It was evident that her detailed interview with us prior to the actual "move" was essential. She really HEARD our responses, requests and needs. She respected our limits yet the results were beyond our expectations of small spaces holding numerous collections of art, books, dishes and other favorite things. We were very impressed with the open, flexible and creative eyes that worked to greatly improve the flow and function of the rooms in our home. Many thanks for bringing to light what we already have and can now enjoy even more!" Ann, Kelowna, BC
