Lily's River Paradise

We purchased a lovely house in the Valley and moved from southern Ontario five months ago, knowing there was a lot of work in front of us to make it into our dream home. Deborah has been with us all the way, guiding us in everything from paint selection to furniture selection to lighting. She is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic, but at the same time respectful of our needs and preferences. Deborah is expert at many different facets of decorating, but we are particularly awed at her colour sense and her instinctive grasp of what we really want, even when we haven't quite recognized it yet ourselves. Deborah is a master at using her time efficiently, and we were impressed at the amount of work she did for us in what amounted to a small number of hours. We highly recommend Deborah for projects both large and small.

A Happy Place

Deborah is a delight to work with, she listens well and stays calm no matter what. Her diplomacy when dealing with trades and suppliers is awesome to see. While we are only about 1/2 thru our demolition & renovation, I know that the end result will be the home I envisioned. I can't imagine doing this without her! Thank you Deborah for all your patience and hard work!

So Nice, We'll Stay

I have had the great pleasure to work with Deborah Nicholson over the years. Deborah was very inspirational when we were listing our home for sale. She re-designed our living space to show it in the best possible light and we consulted with her on paint colours, lighting, and creatively getting the word out to appeal to a wide audience. Deborah is a keen listener, intuitive and so much fun to work with, putting you at ease every step of the way.

What to Add In, What to Leave Out

I can't say enough about the excellent results and very reasonable cost. The work with the furniture, designs, colors and carpets was terrific. Then the look created with the prints and paintings we had to work with far exceeded my expectation. This work was carried out so seemingly effortless and with such reassuring confidence. I was amazed.

In one short meeting, Deborah was able to give us some very helpful, affordable, suggestions about lighting, colour & "hiding" some unmovable objects we had to contend with. She is deeply knowledgeable about available products, and technical details. I can not recommend her highly enough. She uses her keen eye for style to create practical & beautiful realities. Thank you Deborah.

Lighting with Panache

Deborah Nicholson helped me with the entire lighting plan in our new home. She listened attentively to my needs and preferences and supplied us with great suggestions including a floor plan and electrical diagram. She was great to work with, very accommodating and did not try to change my style and/or preferences. I would recommend her to anyone building a new home or renovating.

Art Installation

Deborah, although we only had the opportunity to work for one day together, I learned a lot from the experience and enjoyed it immensely.  As you will recall, I had a number of paintings and mirrors (over 60) that I wanted hung in my newly purchased condo.  I so badly needed the input of a professional interior decorator to assist me - and you were perfect for the job!  You were particularly good at bringing a number of art works together in a collage which was both very interesting and balanced. Your eye for colour and design is amazing - you helped to make every room come alive.

Thank you for your helping to make my condo a home.  I have definitely recommended you to friends and will continue to do so.

We have had the good fortune of working with Deborah Nicholson. We are newcomers to Nova Scotia and purchased a house that required numerous renovations, from changing lighting fixtures to reworking floors, bathroom sinks and toilets, interior design/decoration, remodelling the fireplace and even creating a workspace that includes a sophisticated desk for use with multiple computers and monitors. Deborah displayed ingenuity, efficiency, an incredible creative prowess and communication skills that made our transition to our new home painless and resulted in a living environment that catered to our needs at an affordable price. Because of her excellent work, professionalism, meticulous attention to details and care, we highly recommend her services in all of the aforementioned capacities.
