“As the owners of a Federation home, we faced our major renovation with both excitement and trepidation. Excited because we were embarking on a dream 10 years in the making, fearful because of our desire to respect the heritage and soul of the home that we loved. We will forever remember our first meeting with Jill. People often talk about making changes that are ‘sympathetic’ to a period home’s character; but this always carries a sense of compromise. Jill’s talent is taking the old and the new and elevating both to a new level, working in harmony and neither subordinate to the other. With attention to detail to be believed, Jill has that ability to add that pop of colour, that contrasting texture, or dash of lighting that pulls all the elements together.”

“I can not even begin to describe what a life changing job Jillian has done to my apartment. She has completely changed the whole atmosphere which to be honest, can not be put into words. Working with Jillian has been such an incredible experience as she has such a confident, positive and enthusiastic nature about her and what I love most about our experience together is that she was always able to solve any road bumps without a problem and steer me in the right direction. I love spending time in my home now and it has become such a space for entertaining my friends and family. Her ideas and knowledge about design is unmatched and I could not recommend her enough!”
Jill’s incredible attention to the details made this whole process a joy. It was the little touches that made all the difference, a curved door, a stone architrave, a custom steel shower door or a vintage rug, every choice was perfection. Her custom furniture pieces we used throughout took it all to the next level of originality and one-of-a kind exclusivity. Each room has its own personality yet as a whole it works in total harmony. The transformation
is truly unbelievable. Jill is a talented and creative designer with an expert eye for detail. I loved working with her, and I could never have imagined the transformation and what we were able to achieve.

“Indulgent from the moment you arrive, the home opens into a dramatic entryway, which is reminiscent of a New York brownstone vestibule. Masterfully reconfigured and thoughtfully designed.”
“Every aspect of the project was detailed to perfection, from the initial consultation and design, to the budget, which was meticulously detailed at the very beginning, to the strict timeline we were under. Jillian also came up with beautiful and amazingly clever storage solutions which we would never have come up with ourselves. Jillian went above and beyond our expectations and we couldn’t have been happier with the professional manner in which she and her team worked throughout the whole process from beginning to end.”

“Jill’s ideas were all truly amazing and it was a joy to see the gorgeous colours, textures, fittings and fixtures that she presented meet our brief. Jill sourced beautiful furnishings and introduced new colours that worked perfectly to bring tired rooms to life.
Jill’s ability and passion for beautiful design combined with her attention to every tiny detail and professional project management, all contributed to a very successful project.”
“Jill is an exceptional designer. I asked her to transform my tired, boring, outdated kitchen into a minimal, uplifting space. It is now a work of art! From the moment we began working together, she had a complete understanding of my design aesthetics and requirements. From the inspiring planning process to the quality of the design, the craftsmanship, the attention to detail and the customer service have been outstanding. her expertise, design skill, professional approach are second to none.”
“Jill understands the unique challenges of terrace living, where space and storage are at a premium, and we were constantly surprised by the innovative and imaginative approach she brought to this project. We couldn’t be happier.”
