“Alli is wonderful to work with. We’re so happy with how our kitchen came out. She turned our ideas into a reality, and made it so much better! She worked within our budget, catered to what we needed, and dealt with the contractors. Definitely love her and her work.”

&npsb;

“My husband and I were moving out of our home of 30 years, to a brand new condo in Griffintown. Allison was crucial in all steps of this huge endeavour!! Right from the early planning stages she made it all pleasurable and easy!
I thought I knew exactly what I wanted, but with her guidance and help all our rooms are stylish, functional and absolutely beautiful!! When I was firm on my opinions she respected that, but always had terrific ideas that often changed my mind.
Both my husband and I are so happy after such a big step in our lives, a huge part of that is due to how Allison helped guide us, advise us and was even there for furniture deliveries, visiting numerous stores, dealing with the painter, handymen, all trades people and making calls to make sure all was on track.
I highly recommend Allison and would be happy to work with her again in the future. ”

“Allison helped us with our backyard renovation and turned it into a dream backyard! We are so thankful for her creativity and hard work on our project. We are very happy to recommend her for any of your reno or decorating needs.”

&npsb;

“Allison is amazing! She has such amazing tastes and knows how to spruce up a place. I recently moved into my first home and she recommended / helped with everything. From paint colors, furniture and even small decors. Her ideas definitely revived this home from what it was before, and I am so thankful for her creative mind. Definitely recommend her!”

&npsb;

“Alison is great! I am renovating my bathroom and with a very low budget. She was not pushy with her services but rather made me feel super comfortable to hire her for a one time consultation and respected my budget with her suggestions. In that hour spent with her she made sure all my questions were answered, worked with my ideas and even sketched a layout of what my bathroom should look like after reno. She even emailed me after the exact color code I should use to paint my bathroom wall which really helped me out choosing the right tone of color. She ensured to give me ideas from the ceramics to the small decorations that complement an elegant bathroom decor. I definitely recommend her services and will definitely hire her again once I renovate the rest of my house. Thanks Alison for your great help!”

&npsb;

“We had a great experience with Allison for an estimate for a bathroom. She gave some good ideas on how we can organize our space which was very helpful, thank you!”

&npsb;

“We worked with Allison on our living room that was cramped and not very functional. She guided us throughout the process and helped us throughout. We changed our minds quite a bit and took extra time but she was patient with us throughout.
We love the look of our living room and how much that same space is so much more functional and beautiful.
Thanks so much Allison, we will definitely work together in the future!”

“Extremely happy collaborating with Allison in helping me style my living/dining space, and would absolutely recommend her interior design and home styling services. I've had ideas in my head that have been longing to see the light of day but have been stuck to take action due to the perfectionism in me. After discussing with her my ideas, she straight away designed on the computer my entire living/dining space taking into consideration my ideas and requirements for this space. In addition she brought a whole other level of suggestions and ideas to complete the space. Being on a budget, her DIY suggestions completely resonated with me. When I was unsure of an idea, suggestion or choice in color she was able to help me visualize her suggestion in context. Right from the beginning she has been professional, straight forward, resourceful, creative, knowledgeable, personable and is super customer focused. We've been communicating via online throughout this entire process and she has always made herself available for every question I have. Not only that but sourcing and researching home decor/materials for a completely different country. Really appreciate everything! Thank you! 😘”

“Attentive, patient, professional, and incredibly talented! AR design will adapt to your wants and needs!”

"Allison helped us with our restaurant layout design (indoor and patio). We were really impressed with her knowledge on all the small details to consider that we would never have thought about on our own (such as considering the height of the chair in ratio to the height of the table for the comfortability of our guests). Her option for the use of 3D design really made a difference in being able to visually understand the direction of colour schemes and furniture placement. If you're a busy person on the go, working with Allison will help you save time (and your sanity) in order to maximize the use of your space with the look and feel of your personal vision for it :)"

“We love our new living room! Allison came up with ideas and design that fit perfectly our lifestyle. It is a pleasure to work with Allison - it is clear that she is passionate about her craft. She is more than a designer. She is also a great project manager and a patient lister. We will certainly be using AR design again!”
