Diane is very special. She is a true design professional. Her talent and knowledge in all aspects of interior design and architecture makes her a valuable asset. Not only does she have a good eye, she also has a good ear and a great heart. Diane is a joy to work with. Diane helped us to replace our kitchen, bar and home office a few years ago. She taught us so much and the final design job was amazing, it transformed our space. To this day she will answer any questions we may have. Her continued support through some small warranty issues and one very large issue was invaluable. We so appreciate and trust her. Thank you Diane, you are the best!
From start to finish, Diane was so professional, creative, inspirational and always prompt to respond to any questions and/or concerns. Previous to meeting Diane, we had spent months looking for ‘just the right’ vinyl plank flooring, with no luck. Fortunately, we were referred to Diane, who very quickly sourced what has turned out to be ‘the perfect’ flooring. Also, her eye for paint colours is like no other! We were looking for a transformation to very modern (beachy) colours, with lots of white paint, soft pewter cabinets etc. She arranged for a painting company to do all the painting, and they even re-painted several mirror frames as well as stair railings & bannisters. Very reliable painting company, always on time, and on task for follow-up touch-ups. Wow! Thank you Diane, you have transformed our home from dark colours into one that is modern, bright, and so beautiful! We can’t thank you enough!
I am so pleased with my new spa bathroom! Diane had great recommendations and ideas on how to accomplish the vision of what I was hoping to achieve. Diane had suggestions for locally sourced products and recommendations for contractors and local BC companies that I preferred to support. The end result is a wonderful relaxing oasis! Thanks again Diane!
Diane was very professional and a pleasure to work with in our renovation of our main floor and update of our furniture.
She took time to understand our decorating style and gave us excellent options. She provided invaluable experience on the process, and necessary timing for ordering appliances, furniture, cabinets and materials. She gave great attention to details and kept us well informed on the progress. She initially provided itemized budget estimates which proved to be very accurate. Diane made our renovation a fun, positive experience.
We highly recommend Diane! She not only had great design ideas but was able to educate us on the “how and why” of some design choices. She was friendly, punctual, and respectful of our budget. She also took the time to listen to us and come up with design ideas in keeping with our vision of a practical (yet beautiful) family home. Thanks, Diane!!
We built a new house that was completed in 2020! We got to know Diane as she was the designer for the kitchen, bathroom, and office cabinets we were having made by Nickel’s Cabinets. She was professional, skilled, easy to discuss anything with, always available to solve any dilemma that arose, and creative.
She loves what she does and offers ideas quickly and is willing to take in more work if needed or wanted. We soon handed Diane many different aspects of our home that needed doing … finding stone for our fireplace, helping figure out wood beams and millwork design, choosing tiles, wallpaper, paint colours, lighting and flooring.
We really enjoyed working with her and she made the challenging work of building a house much easier because she took charge if we wanted/needed her to. We don’t hesitate to highly recommend her and will call upon her again!!
We loved working with Diane! Her incredible eye for detail, creative genius and design abilities to transform our dream into reality was second to none, while still allowing us our own style and ideas. She listened to our special requirements regarding what would work around our lifestyle and family then expertly designed our home to timelessly function for us while still looking stunning!
Her easygoing demeanour and great communication skills allowed her to expertly collaborate with my husband and myself, the contractor, suppliers as well as the trades people. Throughout the entire process she was able to help us visualize the project with samples and expert drawings.
Diane’s sense of space, perspective and balance seamlessly guided the project from conception to installation and completion.
We would not hesitate to work with her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a designer.
With Diane’s expert help we turned a run down apartment into a beautiful home!
Diane is a pleasant lady, easy to work with. It is obvious that she has much experience in
designing kitchens and bathrooms. She is a professional, has an excellent eye for colour and detail. All of her suggestions were tasteful as well as practical, though she also gave us
enough room for our own creativity.
I would not hesitate to do another renovation with her and will recommend her to my friends.
Wow! What a job. We hired Diane to help us design a kitchen remodel with Nickels Cabinets. We were 2000 miles away and worked with Diane over FaceTime. She did a tremendous job! Despite her having never stepped foot in our house, the kitchen remodel was a great success, and the cabinetry fits beautifully into place. She was great at communication and flexible in working with our schedule in a different timezone. Without a doubt, I would recommend her to my friends and family.
After interviewing several design companies, we interviewed Diane for our kitchen renovation. It quickly became evident that Diane would be the perfect fit to suit our design/reno needs. Her friendly, easy going manner comibined with a trained eye and attention to detail made her a pleasure to deal with for the duration of our renovation. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product and highly recommend Diane for any renovation or home improvement project!
We recently used Diane to help us in a complete remodel of our master en-suite bathroom. Diane took what was an overwhelming project for us and guided us through every step of the project including choice of materials and layout. She was always available when questions or problems arose and never made us feel like we were bothering her. This was our first time using a designer and Diane took away the stress and made it a fun and exciting experience. Our bathroom is now the calm and soothing room we were looking for! It was a pleasure to work with Diane and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again for our next project! Thanks Diane!
Diane did a great job taking our ideas, and those of our designer, and created a wonderful kitchen. She also orchestrated the cabinetry for our family room and powder room. She is extremely detail-oriented and managed to put up with my demanding expectations. Diane worked with the Nickels Cabinets to create something very special. If you wants something that is both functional and beautiful, Diane will help make it a reality.
This is the second time we have worked with Diane and once again we were very pleased with the process and the final product. Diane’s knowledge made choosing materials and styles extremely easy for us, and her professionalism brought our project in at budget and on time. The tradespeople Diane recommended were skilled, flexible and a pleasure to work with.
My husband and I have worked with Diane Moorhouse after undergoing a large renovation project. We sought her design advice regarding furniture placement, window treatments, custom designed storage needs, selecting counter top caesarstone, painting walls with feature wall colors, and she just recently hung all our paintings because my husband and I couldn’t agree how they should be hung (lol!). Let me tell you that she really knows her stuff! After the paintings were hung, we feel our home looks like a calm and beautiful space. In fact, now our new home FEELS LIKES home.
Besides being fun to work with, she has a background in both a business and architecture degree, so it is no wonder that she really knows what what she is doing. I trust Diane and wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again; it was money well spent.
Diane is an amazing designer…she really understood what I wanted in a kitchen. Our kitchen turned out amazing…she was there when needed for deliveries or consults with the installers and always answers calls or emails quickly! The cabinetry is top notch…beautiful…counters are amazing…and the timing was great… I would hire her again in a heartbeat!
Thank you Diane!
With the purchase of our home we had a large renovation to do which included both bathrooms, kitchen and all flooring. We had never done major renovations before so were really nervous about going ahead with it on our own and Diane was recommended to us. She was a delight to work with and soon understood who we were and what we were wanting to accomplish. Diane made us feel comfortable and helped us make our decisions on everything. Her excitement for our new kitchen was contagious and my fear soon turned to join her with the excitement. Diane was very up to date with the trends of today and informed me in a very gentle way that something that I was thinking of was from the 80’s and that I should maybe rethink that area. So glad she was bold enough to redirect me. We had picked a backsplash that was ok but not a wow look and Diane was able to come in one day with a new sample that gave us the wow we were wanting. I really appreciated her guiding us in the right direction. Diane was great at communicating every step of our renovations and everything came in on time. We also did not feel pressure from her to make any decisions, we were in the drivers seat at all times.
As we have finished our home I feel that I have a new friend in Diane and I would highly recommend Diane as a designer.
