In 2005 we purchased a new home in California. Colleen had been a neighbor and friend of ours in Canada before she relocated to California. We were delighted that she had the time to take on the project of decorating our home. To start with, she took us to various furniture shops and galleries to get a sense of our personal taste. From that point on, she collaborated with us in terms of design, layout, fabric choices and artwork. She was wonderful to work with and the final result was fabulous. In July one year later, we had a flood that required a complete make-over. We hired Colleen as contractor with the goal of putting the house back together again. She was able to put trades in place and tend to all decisions that were necessary. The house was completed on budget and on time for us to enjoy by November. It was truly amazing. She is careful to work within the style and taste of her clients. She has wonderful ideas that add character to the decor. Colleen is very positive and an absolute delight to work with. I would highly recommend her."   Jeannie and Gordon Steele.  La Quinta, California
