Chris has the two great qualities of having thorough knowledge of the design
world and being really easy to work with. He can navigate both clients and
collaboration with other professionals and is one of the go-to people that we

I avoided re-furnishing the main floor of my home because I was concerned the
costs would be prohibitive. With a very modest budget, Chris helped me trans-
form my living and dining rooms into spaces I now love. My friends are amazed
at what we accomplished with very limited resources. Now I’m looking forward to
tackling the rest of the house!
For me, Chris has been an invaluable resource. He is a consumate professional
with an architect’s eye and a designer’s attention to detail. He is great to work
with and patient with his client. As a landcape architect with my own creative
ideas Chris helped me navigate a myriad of unfamiliar design decisions. With
Chris’ guidance I achieved my goal, a contemporary, functional, and lovely
Guest Bathroom. I could not have achieved the same result without him. Thank
I have engaged Chris several times for his unique design insights and project
management expertise. He has shown exemplary vision in modernizing the
office while also making our small space more efficient. Recently Chris was
instrumental in coordinating the repainting of a mural on the side of my building.
This has dramatically increased the presence of my business in the community.
I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs a design specialist.

Chris has been an extraordinary resource. It’s lovely to find someone with great
taste who could create an overall plan to guide our work together. He’s been
incredibly patient as I introduced pieces and did renovations over a period of
years. And I’m confident we’ll do more together in the future.

We’re always happy to work with Chris. His no nonsense approach to project management – from quotation to construction – makes the whole process work.

I have worked with Chris on the House & Landscape Committee of our co-op condominium complex for the past four years. Chris is the committee's design expert. The buildings are known for their simple, elegant, award-winning design which must be respected at all times. Chris is collegial, cooperative, efficient, has an incisive eye for clean design and an excellent sense of colour. Chris' expert
eye can survey a 9'x12' room, note poorly utilized storage space, and identify and recommend in an instant what cabinetry and furniture would work best for space, efficiency, and design within the client's budget. He is a pleasure to

After 17 years in our previous location moving presented challenges and oppor-
tunities. The special needs of an auction house dealing in prestige items and a
high net worth clientele required a unique skill set. Chris was exceptional at solving our design challenges. His vision for our corporate image was thoroughly considered and well rendered bringing about a modern and stylish environment that represents us perfectly.

I’ve watched Chris transform the most unlikely properties (whether apartment,
townhouse, or condo) into open, inviting, and livable gems. He tackles awkward
space with spatial smarts and a keen eye. No matter the challenge, he sees
possibility, and his client ends up with a vibrant, contemporary, and livable home.

Transformative without being revolutionary: that’s what we were hoping for in
our kitchen and master bath upgrade. We’re so glad we took Chris’s advice:
his gentle prodding persuaded us to think beyond what existed. We had been overwhelmed by the decision-making. In presenting layout and finish options,
he gave us focus, and helped us realize our vision. Thank you, Chris.
