My husband and I have been working with Deb Lacroix over a year now with two separate projects. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with, she listens to our ideas and gets a sense of our style and then makes suggestions based on our discussions. She is reasonable and professional with great communication skills. One of our projects involved an insurance claim and she provided correspondence between us and the construction company hired to complete the job. I have to say, she made it so much easier, then if we were directly involved. We look forward to working with her on future projects.
We were fortunate to have been connected with Deb when we bought our condo in August 2019. Deb was excellent with communication and we really appreciated her pragmatic approach to updating the unit in a way that aligned with our goals of short-term rental. She really assisted us in getting the most out of our budget while still fostering a style that we loved. Beyond design, Deb was invaluable in connecting us with other local professionals that made the renovation process as smooth as we could ever hope for. I highly recommend Deb for your next project.
Deb Lacroix was referred to us by our realtor last fall to help us prepare our 3 bedroom Whistler town home for resale. My elderly parents, Keith and Susan Hillman, had purchased the property new in 1996, and it represented many fond memories for them over the years. Deb’s challenge was to update and completely refurnish the 1250 square foot space on a tight budget, and within a very short 6 week time frame, so that the unit could be listed by the beginning of December 2019, in time for the holiday surge. From the get-go, Deb exhibited tremendous sensitivity to the emotional attachment my parents held for their home as she undertook a literal transformation of their property. I was in constant awe of Deb’s knowledge and experience; her keen and tasteful eye; and ultimately her decisive, confident and results driven approach to the project. She knows her market and exactly where to invest time and money in order to get the most out of any budget. And Deb’s choices and decisions paid off. Our town home sold within 5 days for far more than many experts thought it would sell for, and we give Deb all the credit. Our entire family looks forward to working with Deb again and again for all our future interior design and renovation projects, and we enthusiastically recommend her for your next project.

Deb has been an amazing asset in our Whistler condo renovation. She was in her element helping us with the overwhelming task of coordinating the tile, paint, furniture and accessories. She has an eye for detail and flow in the space. She has great relationships with the construction team while creating and maintaining the detailed timeline for the complete renovation of our awesome ‘new’ condo!

Working with Deb was an absolute delight! Towards the end of our project we needed someone to fascilate trades, ensure we were on schedule, make quick decisions, shop and wrap up the project in a timely manner. Deb was extremely professional, stayed committed to the execution of our plans and worked extremely hard to ensure the jobs were done on point! I loved her attention to details, not only in how she could pick out the tiniest of deficiency but also how she helped me to accessorize our unit. There is no way the project would have completed when it did had it not been for her. I absolutely love what Deb did with our unit, we are extremely satisfied! I look forward to having her help us with any future project.
Just a quick email to let you know how delighted we are with the work you have done for us. As you well know we were pretty frustrated about furnishing our new one bedroom/loft unit on the Benchlands. Despite numerous attempts to rearrange furniture, buy new furniture, buy pictures, and buy accessories, we just could not make it work. After your first visit we knew immediately you had the Whistler touch that we were looking for. The renovations you suggested and your decorating transformed our small place into a super comfortable contemporary mountain home. Your renovation contractor was equally great and easy to work with and his work is top notch.
Our place looks great, it was a pleasure working with you, we can’t thank you enough! We are looking forward to working with you again and watching you work your magic in updating our home in Langley. Remember you promised!! Thanx again!

Deb’s approach to helping us redesign our home was just what we needed; she worked within our budget and with our existing furniture, which means we have a fresh, updated look without spending a fortune. Her patience and no fuss approach in helping us make choices was invaluable, always taking on board the need for durability and comfort within a ski home.
