From the initial consultation to the final product Karla was great. She skillfully took our ideas and thoughts and crafted them into a gorgeous reality. She helped us redesign both the look and layout of our dining & living rooms to create a functional space with designer appeal and within a relatively modest budget. She was also a great sounding board as a neutral 3rd party whenever my husband and I had slightly different visions of specifics in the design. 😉 I would confidently recommend Karla to anyone looking to restyle their home. Her fees are very reasonable and she helped us create a space that we can’t wait to come home to.
Karla Dreyer Design assisted me with both sourcing and design of my living room and entry way. Karla, was exceptional at understanding the ‘look’ I wanted and provided design boards I was very happy with. Karla, also shared some design tips that I have used in other areas of my home. If you want a designer that works with you to define your vision and then sources a mixture of high end and cost effective pieces to achieve your vision, Karla Dreyer Design is the who you should call.
I used Karla Dreyer Design when I moved into my new condo and with her great ideas and selections of furniture, accessories, paint and wallpaper I have a condo I love. Karla made it into a place where I feel comfortable to be and yet its very stylish and beautiful. She was able to use my existing furniture, suggest pieces I wanted to replace and kept it well within the budget. Its a great mix of some higher end pieces yet there’s fabulous bargain pieces as well that always gets a girl very excited – chique yet cheap!! I have recommended Karla to other friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. She is a great designer who is not over the top expensive, she has a great eye for details, she takes time to understand her clients tastes and vision and she’s beautiful and extremely lovely to deal with.
For 4 years I had struggled with the look of my office, ever since we moved into our new home. Karla rescued me with a friendly, caring and helpful style for a novice like me but with a clear, “let’s get at it” work ethic. After discussing my needs and design preferences she went to work on a design board. Karla had some excellent suggestions and definitely has a flair for colours and placement. We settled on many beautiful and functional furniture items, a floor covering (love my rug!), lighting (chandelier of course), paint and wall paper. All very affordable as my budget was tight. I now not only enjoy sitting in my office to work but often just curl up in my cozy chair to read a book or just admire my lovely new space. It has become a show piece for our home. I look forward to working with Karla further in the near future and would not hesitate to recommend her work.
It continues to be a pleasure to deal with Karla! She created a very user friendly e-design board for us & it’s been so fun to execute. We are in the process of completing our living room/dining room decor – which I know would have been so much more difficult if we were doing it on our own. I look forward to other projects we can work with her on & have already recommend her to a few of our neighbours who needed interior design assistance.
We have a day spa that had not been updated in 12 years and Karla was a recommendation from a friend. I am leery of meeting designers as my experience in the past is that they do not listen all that well and don’t get the cost side of things. My experience with karla was not this way at all. She “held my hand” through the process of pretty significant colour changes and put together a wonderful design board for our new furniture and accessories. Karla was very patient with the whole process and never made me feel like I “just don’t get it”, respectful all the way. I have no hesitation in recommending Karla
