“Penny and her team were fantastic! When I first sent an inquiry to Penny, she responded within minutes, and that responsiveness continued through the remodel of our cottage behind our main house. She designed a wonderful space for our family, worked within our budget, had highly skilled sub-contractors who were also pleasant to work with, and delivered the project in a timely fashion.


I appreciated her "can do" and positive attitude and her willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done to our satisfaction. I truly enjoyed working with Penny and give her my highest recommendation. When we decided to remodel our main house, I will definitely all upon her again..”

"Penny is not only funny and charming but she really does know about design and construction. I've worked on a few jobs with her now and I can tell you they are all so well planned out and the hard surfaces she picks out are fantastic!


They are not your average tile choices and that's what makes her design so great. She really thinks outside of the box and this is what you want in a designer! Bravo many times over!!”

"Penny helped me with a rather large project! I owe Penny and her team my life and my sanity! I had a major flood in my house which damaged both upstairs and downstairs! I needed a contractor and designer ASAP!

I contacted Penny and she acted fast! She immediately made a plan to rebuild! She coordinated painters, contractors, handymen, electricians and a clean up crew! She kept me informed of every step that was occurring! There were no surprises! 

I was back in my house in less than 3 weeks, which was amazing considering the damage! Every item that had been moved was put back exactly as I had it before! 
Penny and her team were a dream to work with!


I'd recommend her to anyone who is serious about creating a plan and following through!”

"Penny is a fun, creative designer. We enjoyed working with her throughout the entire process, which lasted for the better part of a year. She understood our style perfectly and is able to think out of the box.


She is well versed in current design trends. Our original project was to add 25 square feet to the kitchen coupled with a remodel of the kitchen. The project grew from that to almost a whole house remodel, new flooring, paint, mouldings, and bathrooms".
