“Claire came highly prepared, and she provided a questionnaire prior to our meeting to better understand my tastes and interests. Using that information, she brought relevant samples and helped me to select some of the materials that would suit the look I was after.”

-Diane Bili, Hamilton Client

“I hired Claire for consultation on an extensive house renovation. She assisted with floor plans, paint/floor finishes, and kitchen cabinet/counter selections. Claire is professional, knowledgeable, very hard-working, and easy to work with. She is focused on providing a finished product that suits the individual need and style of the client.”

“I had the pleasure of consulting with Claire on selecting the finishes for my kitchen renovation. Claire was able to assist us in making appropriate selections that fit our style and our space. Without her, I am not sure I would have managed to find my way out of a mountain of white paint chips! It really came together beautifully and I could not be more pleased.”

-Keri, Burlington Client
