I wanted to make our new house a home for my family. During the first meeting, Jackie took the time to talk with me to understand
the style I was looking for. Jackie was able to understand the look and feel that I wanted in my house and make suggestions with my
preferences in mind. Jackie was able to coordinate the painter and installers needed to complete the work. “Jackie has the ability to look at a room and create a flow of colours which complements your existing furnishings and lifestyle.” Donna Gray

The following is a letter of reference for Interior Decorator Jackie Connolly. I bought a home in Georgetown, Ontario in the spring of 2007. The house was completely unfurnished when I moved in from a one bedroom apartment. With the exception of a bed and a few bedroom furnishings, nothing else from my apartment could be used in my new home. In other words, the entire re-decorating effort was from scratch. In the past, I had always relied on my wife to look after the furnishing of our homes. I had absolutely no experience in interior decorating. As a result, I hired Jackie to help me do my interior decorating.
I did not know where to begin, as I had no idea what I wanted. This was frustrating to both Jackie and me. She correctly recommended that we spend several Friday’s visiting various furniture stores. After several outings, she began to get a feel for what I wanted. This turned out to be a “traditional” style. The most important pieces of furniture were the chesterfield and wing back chairs. After searching many stores we could not find a piece that we liked. She recommended that we go to a furniture manufacturer in Vaughn. There, we finally found a chesterfield style that I liked. We then went through about a 100 different fabrics with a wide variety of patterns and colors. Jackie finally found a floral pattern that beautifully matched my blue carpet and burgundy walls. When we got the chesterfield six weeks later, it turned out to be a perfect match. The same was true how we chose the color and patterns for the wing back chairs. All this was done at a reasonable price, which Jackie was able to negotiate on my behalf.
In total, she helped me purchase over 25 different pieces of furniture, artwork and other home furnishing items. I can say that all the pieces fit the “traditional” theme and melded together to stand out in a golden glow under the beautiful chandelier that she found. Jackie also saved me a fair bit of money by taking me to dealers that could only deal with Interior Decorators and there by getting me discounts. Jackie is sociable, fun and energetic. I highly recommend her for anyone needing an Interior Decorator.
