Dianne was recommended by a moving company specializing in helping people ‘right size’.  We were wary of Designers who made their disapproval of our taste clear (“very Forties”) and insisted we accept their ideas. I wanted my husband to enjoy the process and have his ideas accepted too. We were also concerned about the expense of a Designer ($1500 for a duvet cover! Really?)  We moved from a Beaches Tudor style house to a modern condo. Thinking that our furniture was not too large, we moved most of it. It wasn’t right; some of it was too small! But we didn’t know what to do.

 

Enter Dianne. By talking, visiting stores, looking at magazines, she developed an understanding of our taste and budget. This is always her goal.  It was fun! We kept the pieces that meant something to us. Then we chose tables, chairs, a headboard, and so on that fit with our desire for a more transitional look.  I thought I was good with colour, but could not imagine how to work with our Isfahan carpet. Dianne found the colours we liked.  The dining room chairs were exactly what we wanted – at a price we could afford.  She supervised the placement of our pictures, including the most important ones. It is not conventional, but it works. She found a place for them all in attractive groupings When we moved on the apartment looked so good the agent said it didn’t need to be staged, and a bidding war ensued.  The new condo was finished in a more traditional manner with built in wood cabinetry. The furniture looks perfect with it, all brought together by a wall colour Dianne suggested and people love when they walk in.  My husband and I really enjoyed working with Dianne, and thanks to her, are truly comfortable in our new home.

Dianne:  We would like to express our thanks to you in designing a beautiful room for our daughter, Mila.   From design to décor, your hard work, creative ideas and exceptional service have resulted in a room that my daughter loves to spend time in.  (The room is so pleasant that my husband and I love spending time in there too!)  We look forward to having you design our new son Evan’s room in the near future.  Thank you so much.

“When we decided to sell our house, we hired Dianne to help us get the house ready for the market.  Dianne advised us and provided practical recommendations to get our house ready to show.  Dianne came in and transformed the house by de-cluttering it and redistributing our belongings – we did not have to purchase very much.  When Dianne was done, our house looked like a model home.  The result was a serene and neutral home, ready for sale.  We received numerous compliments from visitors about how beautiful the house looked.  Needless to say, we were very happy with Dianne and her work.  She has a great talent for visualizing how our house should have looked, and our goal of selling quickly was realized.  Thanks again Dianne!”

I needed assistance selecting paint colours and fabrics for upholstery of several pieces of furniture and for window treatments in my home.  Dianne came highly recommended to me by a friend.  She chose paint colours and coordinated fabrics that were beyond what I would have ever put together on my own.  I love what she did for my home and I am enjoy its fresh new look.   Thank you Dianne for a job well done.

I had been having trouble selling my condo empty of furniture for months.  Changing real estate companies, my Agent suggested staging the condo and suggested Homefront Redesigns.  I met with Dianne for a consultation and we came up with a plan for furnishings and accessories in a style best suiting the space.  I must say that within a week Dianne had the furniture delivered, staged with accessories and looking amazing.  I couldn’t have been happier with the results.  My condo sold very quickly.  I would sure recommend Homefront Redesigns.

We had lived in our home with plain beige walls for four years.  In that time, we had acquired various pieces of furniture and art pieces.  We wanted to update the look of our home with a paint job top to bottom but felt that it was a daunting task to find great paint colours that would tie together our existing design choices and our home’s natural features (like bamboo floors, marble, wood cabinets and exposed brick).  Dianne provided a colour consultation that guided the choice of a wonderful colour palette for every room in our three storeys home.  She considered what we had and suggested unexpected colour  ideas that enhanced and boosted the look of every room.  We are delighted with the top to bottom transformation and feel like we have a warm and inviting home that expresses our style and personality.  We wonder how we lived with beige throughout for so long!  Thanks Dianne!

We recently downsized from a house to an apartment, and we used  homefront redesigns to assist us with the layout, to arrange for painting throughout the unit, and to find suitable window dressings.  Dianne recommended and sourced recliner chairs and found, obtained, and installed a coat rack in our hall for us.  She was extremely helpful and dependable throughout the process, as well as prompt and efficient.  Her colour recommendations were excellent.  In all, we were most pleased with her service and would recommend her to anyone needing help with interior decorating.
