Exterior Home Renovation

Irene was recommended to me by our painting company and I'm so glad they did! She came to our house and listened to what we wanted, taking into account our style, as well as that of the house and the neighbourhood. She helped us select colours that really updated the look of our property and added value. I would definitely suggest her services to anyone looking to make a change. When you think about what you spend to repaint it really makes sense to invest a little in choosing the right colours the first time!

We were very impressed with the approach and commitment that Irene and her assistant Eileen provided us with.

They went the extra mile in selecting and completing our renovating project, and were always available to answer any questions we had.

We will use their services again,as well we will gladly recommend their services to others.

Kitchen reno, home colors

Working with Irene was a total pleasure, she is so helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Her color choices and design ideas, were just perfect. Our renovation started to flounder and she helped get everything back on track. I highly recommend Irene's services.

Exterior house color consultation

Irene's consultation support for selecting exterior house colors was outstanding ! She is incredibly patient, and skilled at collaboratively working towards the right color decisions. Irene made this process enjoyable and stress free. I would definately recommend her to family and friends.

Multiple renovations and builds

We've been using designhappens since 2008. Over 8 projects, Irene has provided us with an array of colours to keep the game fresh! From our first renovation in Coquitlam, to our most recent build in Burnaby we never stop to think who we will call first. She is quick to respond to emails and always wanting the best for our products. She treats them as if they were her own.

We have another project lined up and have already consulted her regarding the window colours!

5 stars all the way, she will not disappoint!

Colour Consultation

I needed advice on (a) colour to repaint the newly renovated kitchen to make the kitchen look less grey (b) a colour for the rest of the house, to blend the kitchen in with the existing furniture and agreeable to my colour palette (c) colour and type of tiles I should use on washroom floors that would blend with existing tub/ shower stall and the vanity top.
I had a very tight budget. Irene understood that and gave me cost reducing ideas and gave me the perfect colour combinations as well as her discounts. She charged a fee for the whole job and not by the hour which was great and was available for consultation during the job.
The colours Irene picked look great and the kitchen and the rest of the place blends in perfectly. I had so many complements on the finished product.
Thank you Irene for all your help and assistance which is greatly appreciated!

Exterior Color Consultation

Irene was part of the ProRise team who painted our house and deck last month. She was professional, thoughtful and approachable. She shared her insights and suggestions and was respectful as to our likes/dislikes. It was refreshing to have someone that looked at positives vs negatives. She took time to review colors with us and was very quick in responding to our many emails and questions. I was a bit hesitant about some of the colors but the end result was fabulous! The colors connected our house and deck and we have had many compliments on our house. I am glad we put our trust in her and look forward to future work with her.

Thank you for your kind words and for the trust you put in me. Exterior colour is usually a challenge for many people as colour changes with light. Pleased that you are happy with the end result. Contact me at any time should you have any further colour or design questions.

Exterior Paint Colours

When I decided to have the exterior my house re-painted, Joseph of ProRise Painting recommended and provided a colour consultation with Irene. While I have always considered myself quite naturally astute about design and colour, I quickly realized the benefits of knowledge and professionalism. Irene was patient, thoughtful, and considerate, keen to get a clear sense of the house and my general focus, then quick to find the colours that would bring my general idea to reality, and then patient again as I considered the options and sent more questions her way. I am very pleased with the colour combination she suggested; it has given my home a more contemporary, sophisticated look and has also enhanced its connection to its setting. I recommend her very highly and without hesitation.

Colour consultation

Irene was an absolute pleasure to work with. We are so glad it was her that walked through our door that day. We couldn’t be happier with the colours she suggested for our Condo and with the end result. Irene went beyond the colour consultation and offered many other helpful design suggestions. I have already recommended Irene to others and strongly, with confidence, recommend Irene to anybody looking for design assistance/advice.
