I am still completely overwhelmed with all of the “newness” of many areas vying for my attention. There is so much to look at and consider in the design and the accessorizing that I feel as if I am walking in a dream. My husband feels similarly as it is just so much to take in. That being said, my home looks stunning! I keep flashing back to the initial meetings with our Architect and then with you in which we communicated our desire to have a home to reflect a new chapter in our lives and which was not comfortable in the sense that our previous home, furnished before we had a cottage, was. We wanted something gracious, elegant and reflective of the fact that we have many influences in our lives coming from a myriad of directions. We are not defined by Restoration Hardware, an antique store in town or local furniture shops; we are all of those things and more put together in a unique blend that spells out O’Hanlon.
What you have given us in the completed areas is a blend of our wish list that is exciting yet elegant, chic but not boring, modern yet still comfortable. Above all, it is beautiful. Over the next few days I know I will be lifting every accessory and learning what it is and figuring out why it was placed there. I will be looking at each space in every light and from every angle to appreciate the secrets that each view unfolds as this is part of the complexity at which you excel.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Liz and Nicole in the renovation and in the interior design of our home. Your extensive expertise and guidance has updated and created a family home that we truly love because it is such a reflection of who we are and how we like to live. It is elegant and sophisticated yet comfortable, welcoming and warm. You are simply the best!
Elizabeth and Nicole were so keenly perceptive at understanding my vision and and design preferences, that they did an amazing job of bringing my dream-home to life. As a result of their extensive talent, they created the tailored, yet serene and relaxing environment I envisioned, with overwhelming success. I would never have been able to achieve my dream-home without their help and expertise. I greatly appreciated the time Elizabeth and Nicole took to provide insight and rationale behind their creative recommendations. I accordingly felt very engaged in the project, and found it interesting to also learn some of the theories behind design. Additionally, EM Design is supported by an excellent team of trustworthy, skilled and courteous trades, such as contractors, painters, carpenters, etc. Although I have lived in my house for close to 20 years, thanks to EM Design, this is honestly the first time I can truly say that I now love my home.
It is always a pleasure working with Liz on all of her projects. Her talent is very evident in every detail through every design. Her eye for colour and design intent allow Liz to select the right carpets for her client’s spaces. Elizabeth Metcalfe Interior & Design Inc. has an incredible ability to mix solids and pattern beautifully into a balanced harmony. We would, without a doubt, give our recommendation to anyone looking for an experienced designer who knows her clients needs, listens to them and produces gorgeous spaces!
We had enjoyed the pleasure of working with Liz and Nicole for many years and it truly is a pleasure. The work she creates is beyond beautiful and her eye for colour is the best. She takes some of the finest products that we distribute and uses them to create spaces as fine as any designer in North America. Whether a small or massive project she has the ability to create a living space which her customers love.
Timeless elegance would possibly be an apt description of her work. I would recommend her for any project where one is looking for the best.
We truly feel grateful we had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth Metcalfe Interiors and Design. Their transformation of our house has made us feel privileged to call this home. Throughout the entire design process, Liz and Nicole were approachable, sensitive to budget and clear communicators. They created an environment that is elegant and contemporary yet comfortable and reflective of our personalities and young family lifestyle. We are still overwhelmed by how incredible our home feels and cannot wait to work with them again.
