What people are saying…
“Recently our family moved into a new home. It was a huge task as we were downsizing from 5500 sq. ft. to 1500 sq. ft. It would have been an overwhelming project without the help of Penny Waller. Her organizational skills and decorating know-how were outstanding. From room to room, she measured for furniture placement, wall decor, and overall impact. While respecting our taste, she was able to inject her professional design perspective as well. With a calm manner, she walked us through from the beginning of the process to the end. I would heartily recommend her services, and would certainly engage her help again.”- Dennis Wiedrick, Courtice ON
“Just a quick note to let you know the colors you have chosen for our home are absolutely beautiful, they have brighten our home and brightened our hearts as well…It’s amazing what a little paint and rearranging can do to up lift our spirits. We now love coming home to our lovely little humble home in which we adore. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your suggestions and professional guidance…I would recommend your service without any hesitation.”- Sarah Bradt, Parry Sound ON
“It is with great pleasure and satisfaction I recommend the services of Penny Waller. We have acquired her services on more than one occasion for different rooms in our home. Her eye for color is fabulous. As I am painting on the new paint color she suggests I am always a little reluctant as to how the finished product will turn out. However, I have never been disappointed once with the finished room. I would have not chosen the particular colors myself but Penny has the ability to see the whole picture. Penny has chosen colors for our kitchen, dining area, living room, bedroom, bathroom and basement.
Penny spent a day providing direction in furniture placement and wall hangings in our newly painted basement. The basement included an office area, TV nook, and a recreation area with a pool table. She worked with what I had which made the upgrade very affordable and was very considerate of what was important to me. I continually get compliments on the wall décor and how appealing they are to the eye. I am very comfortable with the overall look and feel of our home.
I believe Penny’s services have reflected who I am and have provided a very classy and put together look. Penny is the first one I will call before the paint brush comes out again as I know she understands and reflects my personality in the décor advice she gives. I am also confident she appreciates and understands budget guidelines I express, of which I am so thankful.”- Donna Schultz, Oshawa ON
“I have once again looked at the remarkable changes that took place in my parents “60 year” homestead and marvel at the transformation that occurred – Penny was able to “make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” (one of my mother’s favourite sayings) – Penny was flexible to incorporate the colour choices to suit them and make it feel homey but much more scaled down from the prior “look”. It was like the butterfly coming out of the cocoon. Thank you, Penny, for your enduring patience and concern.”- Marianne Cook, ON
“We had a DECORATING 911 – I had a 12 hour deadline to finish the painting in my open kitchen/den and the original paint I chose turned out all wrong. Penny came to my rescue and not only chose the color, she stayed to paint so that I could meet my deadline before the floor sanders came in. When it came to FINISHING my project which included tearing down a wall, dry walling, new electrical etc. Penny supplied a contact for the support wall beam, offered suggestions on pot lighting placement and color schemes to match the kitchen cupboards.
My project took some time and Penny was patient. When it came time to refurnish the room Penny was there to assist us with choosing the furniture, the fabric (from thousands of choices) starting with color choices and continuing to include our personality choices as well as our ‘desired feel’ for the room. The furniture choosing included multiple questions that I never would have considered….how do we use the furniture – lay down, sit up, needs for physical support, moving it from room to room to accommodate extra company, tv watching and head placement.
The final product is a room that is very comfortable, meets our physical and style needs/desires and offers options to placement. Very happy with the final outcome – and it works well with the cupboards and wall color. The stress felt during the whole process of choosing furniture and fabric was greatly reduced and almost totally eliminated by Penny’s focused attention to our needs, our personality and tastes, her ability to find color matches and her sense of humour. I recommend the Penny experience to anyone.
My personality prefers ‘light’ and ‘fun’ with colour and whimsy. At the same time I like a room to be calm. Sounds impossible but Penny was able to capture all of the above and direct me graciously away from what would have been disastrous decisions. Now that I see the final ‘picture’ the vision is what I had hoped for. We would use your services again in a MINUTE! What are you doing in the fall? We have a living room to finish 🙂 Yes the design fit my budget and she offered ideas and alternatives that kept us in budget when I thought our only choices would be to spend more. Thank-You..Thank-you.”- Tracy Hockin, Newcastle ON
“The service I required was for the bathroom to be changed from having a tub, to a large shower – and done in such a way that it looked like the original design, not a shower put in as an ‘after thought’. As it was going to be used by a physically handicapped person, the shower assembly and handrails needed designing so that it looked like a normal high-class en-suit bathroom, NOT a hospital bathroom. A wall medicine cabinet was needed, and plenty of draw space for storage.
The bathroom floor was leveled and heated floor tiles installed that have both temperature control and a timer where the tile temperature can be changed at different times/days during the week. This is very nice after using the shower and for any visits during the night!! The photographs show that all the objectives were achieved. The medical staff who come to our home to help look after my wife have commented that it is one of the nicest bathrooms they have seen.”- S. Phillips, Courtice, ON
