renovation

I first heard about the services of Irene at Design Happens, when she helped friends of ours choose new paint colors for the interior of their home. The transformation was beautiful …what a difference the right color paint makes in a room. So when it was time to update in our home, I called Irene to consult with … in the past I would have gone to Home Depot, been overwhelmed by the thousands of paint chips, and chosen my favorite color without any consideration to the woodwork, flooring, furniture, lighting, etc. I probably wouldn’t have even looked at the colors Irene suggested …but they were and are perfect! This lady knows her stuff!! She suggested paint colors, organized the painters, brought samples of flooring, organized the installation of the new flooring, suggested window covering options and organized the measuring and installation. A stressfree renovation for me! Thanks Irene!

Colour Consultation

We were extremely pleased with the colour consultation that Irene did for the interior paint for our home. We had a general sence of what we would like, and Irene was able to transfer our "vague ideas" into a masterpiece. The colours look amazing and really complement our furniture and existing art work. She took the time to ensure we were happy with our selections, and provided us with other decorating tips while she was here. Her expertise, combined with her warm personality made the whole process stress-free and fun! It was well worth the investment.

Paint Color and Design

Irene is amazing with color! She has helped 3 other family members pick colors and design their homes. So, when I got my place she was the first person I called. She listens to your likes and dislikes and takes into consideration everything: location, lighting, accent colors, current furnishings and future purchases. Not only did she help me pick colors to make my home feel like ME, she also had great ideas on decorating and furniture placement. She knows what stores to shop at and where the best deals can be found. You never think picking paint is stressful till you are sitting on the floor of your living room surrounded by 50 paint swatches thinking to yourself “how can there be so many versions of white?!?” Irene takes that stress away!

I am happy that everything worked out well for you. Colour can be stressful and overwhelming in addition to other decorating choices, and yes there are many versions of white, its is all a matter of the undertones. Enjoy your space.

Interior Design

Irene has an amazing eye for colour and is an extremely talented designer. My parents hired her to work on their townhome and were very happy with the results. I thought i couldn't afford Irene, so started to use my parent's colours in my home - $80 in paint later I called Irene.She immediately zeroed in on the problems with my home and took the time to find just the right colours for me. I had her give me colours for all my rooms, even though I was only painting the main floor, but I was so happy with the way the colour transformed the space that I kept going and painted the entire house. Irene went way beyond paint colours, recommending design options for now and in the future, and gave me many cost saving tips so that I could accomplish the changes on my very limited budget. I have been in my home for 10 years, and it now feels like an entirely different house. It looks elegent, modern, and tranquil. I love it! I have a design direction for my home to help me with shopping for accessories, and know just what to look for in flooring, carpet, etc. Irene has many contacts in the interior deisgn business and gave me names of trusted contractors and places to get the best prices on flooring and accessories. Irene is wonderful to work with and a truely talented disigner. I highly recommend her.

Paint Colour Advice

Irene, (I call her our Colour Godess) was absolutely amazing!! We moved into a brand new home in Coquitlam with no paint on any wall and she nailed our tastes as well as talked us out of spending thousands more having the entire house done and just concentrate on certain accent walls and carrying the colour through. We are so thrilled with the outcome of the bedrooms, bathrooms and the main Colour carried throughout our home. She is patient and really listens to what your tastes are and takes her time with you. So nice and just could not be happier with the Colour choices in our home. Amazingly talented and sure has the designer eye for what looks good. Would recommend her to anyone and it was the best money we spent as it saved us from making mistakes with choosing and matching ourselves.

Colour Service

Irene Fraser lays the foundation for a beautiful home. Through her experience and service, she added polish, class, and value to our home. She listened to our ideas, created an amazing palette of colours, and generally guided us on selecting complementary finishes like counters, flooring, and backsplash. Additionally, Irene allowed us to use her contractor discounts, which were very useful for helping us achieve amazing results while staying on budget. Hiring Design Happens easily paid for itself.

Design and colour consultation

I have had the pleasure of working with Irene Fraser from Design Happens on several occasions and would highly recommend her to anyone considering any type of home design or renovation. I needed help in choosing colours for my townhouse and had no idea where to start, Irene helped me choose colours and window coverings that fit my style and transformed plain rooms into designer styled. I always received compliments on the colours that I chose and when it came time to sell my house it was a big factor in receiving offers over my asking price. Irene was one of the first people I called when I bought my new place and I have been so impressed with her professionalism and great knowledge of design as well as her great team of professionals. I cannot recommend Irene enough, she is fantastic to work with and achieves amazing results!
