McNicol Interior Designs

client testimonials

"We hired Julie to design our kitchen and main floor powder room from the ground up including all fixtures and finishes. Additionally, she designed new built-ins throughout the house, created the lighting plan, and guided us through interior and exterior colour selections. The overall goal was to rebuild/update several key areas in the house while retaining and enhancing the existing character. 

Julie is very well organized, responsive, and professional in her work. She has great, practical ideas to meet the needs of her client while remaining conscious of the budget with which she is working. She is well versed in different design styles and has a wide range of suppliers with whom she works. Probably at least as important, she is very pleasant and easy to work with and has made what could be a stressful process a lot of fun. 
The kitchen is a reasonable size, but not huge by any means. Julie has created a very functional and well optimized space, that meets all of our needs and wants, and is also gorgeous to look at. The powder room was carved out of underused space and is beautifully consistent with the character of the rest of the house, looking like it has always been there. Julie designed built-ins to create storage in awkward and underused spaces that have enabled us to make better use of the space throughout the house, ensuring that everything has a place. She really knows the small details that make a huge difference in design. 
Julie has been a very effective point person for the interior construction, working well with all of the suppliers, ensuring the contractor has all the information needed, but always keeping the needs of her client at the forefront. I would have no hesitation to work with her again or to recommend her to friends." - Anthony Smith, Mississauga


"We have been fortunate enough to have Julie design and execute both our basement and kitchen in our current house. We were impressed with her professionalism and courteous nature while managing to meet our timeline and budget estimates. Julie is extremely talented in how she views space; her creativity shines through in how she purposefully executes designs that are beautiful and relevant while being timeless. Both our kitchen and basement have been show pieces with friends and family, our ears ringing with "ooohs" and "aaaahs" at every visit. We 100% recommend Julie for all your design needs!!!" - Jake Currie, Whitby


 "After recommended by a friend, I asked Julie to help me with the design and project management of a complete refurbishment of an up-market apartment. Being overseas, I communicated to Julie mainly via email. After sending her some photos of the styles I like, Julie was able to design two new bathrooms, open plan kitchen as well as selecting all the fixtures, floor and wall colour to suit my needs and my preferred style quickly and on budget, . She has an eye for detail, communicates clearly, and is very accommodating and extremely responsible. I feel very lucky to have hired her, and would recommend her highly." - Jennifer Yu, England

"Julie provided exceptional design ideas and plans for my custom home implementing architectural and finish details throughout. All of her suggestions created maximum impact to the look and feel, making our house a home. She delivered all with tremendous efficiency, thoughtfulness and respect for our vision; on time and on budget. A true caring professional who our trades people and suppliers loved, not loathed!!" - Jack Fratia, Mississauga


"Julie is truly a talented Interior Designer and I would highly recommend her services! 
My husband and I lack artistic/design abilities especially when transforming large living spaces. Julie's ability to interpret our ideas, our likes and dislikes gave us full confidence in her talent. She brought tremendous amount of creativity and suggested ideas/floor plans/colors and furniture pieces we never thought or imagined. Julie is very easy to work with, communicates openly, provides honest feedback and her attention to detail is incredible. We worked with Julie on 2 major projects; completing our unfinished basement into a cozy adult TV living space, a craft area and a separate play/sleepover space for our daughter and her friends AND a full tear out and rebuild of our dream kitchen. We have also used Julie's talent to help us accessorize our home and select paint colours. Our next project is our bathrooms and without a doubt, Julie will design perfection!!" - Lisa Currie, Whitby


"Julie McNicol is an excellent Designer. She has assisted us with several home renovation and refurnishing projects over the years. Julie is very organized and professional. Her work has been a big help to us." - Daniel Glassberg, Toronto


"I had the good fortune of meeting Julie McNicol about three years ago and, since then, she has assisted me with two interior design projects. The first project entailed decorating for an expansion to my office and the second was to decorate a condo I had purchased. Julie has a great eye and is an amazing designer. She also has a wonderful personality and is extremely easy to do business with. Without a doubt Julie and I will work together again in the future and my wife and I have no plans to discuss any future design projects with anyone else." - Jeffrey Dawson, Toronto
