home rennovation

"Barbara was a professional". She kept to her plan and offered us the suggestions that we were looking for. It would have been easy for her to go beyond what I asked for but she held to the needs that I was seeking which is what I wanted. She came prepared and was ready to go into action the moment she arrived. Definitely a professional.

Home Staging and design assistance

I am a Real Estate Sales Representative in Toronto. I was initially referred to Barbara by a colleague due to her unique focus on not just beautifing homes but using 'Green' products like paints and cleaning supplies when given the oppurtunity. With numerous succesful sales to date and the continued satisfaction from my clients in terms of value for services provided, I not only refer Nikka design, but have encouraged other agents to do the same. Keep up the great work Barbara and I look forward to my next listing that we can work togehter on.
Many thanks

Choosing paint colours for living/dining area

I had a general idea of the colours I wanted for my living/dining area, but felt a little overwhelmed. Barbara helped focus my attention and offered tips on how to finalize the paint choice. She also got me thinking about related issues … such as moving the furniture and reducing the “comfortable clutter” in our living and dining rooms. It meant extra work in the short term, but a more beautiful space in the long run.

Design, refurbishing and renovation

A superb designer has 3 strengths
1. A compelling aesthetic and sense of design, while being current and comprehensive
2. An innate willingness to listen and respond with flexible and personalized design counsel.
3 A strong business and project management sense, coupled with absolute insistence on supplier service and quality.
Barbara Nyke is the complete package, She gave us design solutions that we felt were our own but would never have arrived at unaided.
We recommnd her wholeheartedly.

Renovations & Interior Design to Condo

In our initial interview we were “wowed” by Barbara. We realized she was the decorator for us, when after a brief discussion she suggested a simple rearrangement of our living room furniture (which by the way was dynamite!). By probing us with many questions she made sure she understood how we would use each room and she also took the time to learn a little about us so that she could put some of our personality into our home. When it came time to choose material, fabric and art work normally a daunting task, Barbara seemed to select only the samples which had the right “look and feel” for us. While we haven’t finished all the projects, we love what we have created together with Barbara.
She is great to work with and she is someone who cares. Her services have been great and we highly recommend her for any and all decorating projects.

Home Decorating

With the purchase of a new home, I knew in advance that I did not have an interest in decorating. The whole process seemed a bit intimidating. I am so happy with my decision to work with Barbara. She provided guidance and advice for all of my needs and challenges. She made the entire process very simple for me. From the initial contact by email to all subsequent meetings, Barbara was always friendly and professional. She was able to help me with space planning, colour selection, and furniture purchases to create a warm environment in my new home. She listened attentively to all of my requests and was able to create an inviting space that fit my timelines and my budget. I would have no hesitation in recommending [NIKKA] Design for any decorating needs.

Hi Sharon, thank you for your testimonial. It was our pleasure to fully design your brand new first home and condo. What a creative challenge it was for us to fully furnish and accessorize your home since you only brought your clothes and piano! We love projects like this! Enjoy it all.

Wow...Barbara has transformed my living space into a home that is warm and inviting. We worked together to pick colours, lighting, tile for back splash and a whole host of decorating ideas.

Design Consultation

Barbara came to my home and spent more time and energy than was expected in helping me to improve my home decor and design. She was extremely personable, helpful and insightful in recommending a wide range of improvements that I could consider, while being cognizant of my budget and timing issues. I was very impressed with her knowledge of environmentally friendly options as well as her design recommendations.

I've already made some of the changes that she recommended and now receive compliments on my home all the time. I look forward to being able to work with Barbara again in the future - she is great.
