“After a recent move from the Toronto area, we were given Caroline’s name to help us with some changes we hoped to make in our new house. She was incredible! We were unsure of how to actually make the house we bought our home, but with Caroline’s guidance, she did that and 100x more. She transformed the house we bought to a very warm, welcoming, cozy home. Her ideas and concepts are so unique, and her eye for design and attention to detail are no doubt some of the best in the industry. She was able to work with the ideas and wish list we had created and turn them all into a reality. Once Caroline started something she would not stop until every fine detail was completed. Working under her leadership are some of the best trades in the area. We were more and more impressed each time a new area in the house was finished.Everything she has done for us is far beyond our expectations. We could not be HAPPIER!”

“It was a delight working with Caroline to turn my very small, very dreary bathroom into a bright, functional and relaxing space. Caroline worked with my budget, and the crazy physical constraints of the project; she helped make what could have been a stressful renovation into fun. I was delighted with the professional relationships she created and maintained with my general contractor, subs and various sales people. Caroline turned my vague vision into a workable and wonderful bathroom. I would recommend Caroline Harrison Designs to anyone looking for a smart, professional designer with a fantastic eye for light, colour, space and style.”

We are so thrilled that Caroline assisted us with various projects in re-modeling our home including a new kitchen, a child’s bedroom, a living room and office space. Once you begin with Caroline, you just want her to do more and more because she created spaces that I would never have thought of, within the same budget! Caroline truly puts her clients first – she put herself in our shoes and really listened to what we were looking for. She cared about doing a great job that fulfilled our vision for what we wanted to achieve for our home and office. She has a great sense of style, design, and colour and can source almost anything. What sets her apart is her sense of practicality for the spaces she designs while always considering budget. She was great at determining which pieces and design elements were worth splurging on and which ones we did not need to. She has high standards and great attention to detail, noticing things we did not even think of. She even extends these standards to the individual trades people that she recommends – she would not recommend someone who she would not use herself. And her positive, hardworking and honest nature allowed her to work beautifully with our other suppliers. I appreciated how organized she was with a plan (which kept us organized!) and was the ultimate professional who met her commitments and timelines. I have recommended Caroline and will continue to do so – and, I will not take on any major design project without Caroline’s design advice!

Caroline Harrison of Caroline Harrison Designs worked with our family on two separate and distinctly different projects. The first, a modern office space in a new building. The second; a bedroom for a ten year old boy with a discerning eye and a keen interest in the decision making process. Her infinite attention to both detail and organization was invaluable. She carefully listened to requests and effortlessly facilitated the process of turning a conceptual vision into an actual space. She allowed my son the opportunity to articulate his point of view and responded in kind. Caroline was able to blend the world of design with the practical demands inherent in project completion. In other words the trades came when scheduled, furniture was delivered on time, walls painted, all done seamlessly. The less than elegant but oh so necessary aspect of renovation was practically managed. Caroline’s ability to combine artistry with the fundamental skills of design will leave clients wondering how it all seemed so easy.

I have hired Caroline Harrison Designs Inc for 2 large renovations in my house. Both have turned out beautifully. I love the organization and time she takes with me to ensure the job is done as close to the time line as possible. She listens closely to all details and pulls them together. She is very friendly yet respectful.

Our project was a complete renovation of both the exterior and interior of our 30 year old home. Caroline immediately understood our design requirements despite the fact we had difficulty expressing our vision. She guided us through the design and selection decisions with confidence and always reminded us that we needed to be completely satisfied with the choices we made before moving on to the next phase of the project. Caroline has excellent contacts whom she shares with her clients and this provided us with the opportunity to obtain discounts on our purchases.
I would highly recommend Caroline for her experience, talent, and most of all because she is a truly inspiring person to have as a partner in every project!

Caroline is an excellent designer and consultant. She was very helpful to me to design my condo and help me choose furniture for it. She took me to several places to look at things and allowed me to choose my finishes. She is easy going and we were able to blend both our styles. She is very creative and is up to date on the trends of today and the future. She is very well organized and I will highly recommend her to anyone.

Working with Caroline and her team was an absolute pleasure.
First off, always easy to get a hold of, with quick and timely responses. Caroline herself was an excellent person to collborate with, and used her own unique styles while completley understanding and recreating a space we invisioned. Often times ideas can be lost in translation, however caroline provided an experience that allowed us to make suggestions, but ultimately knew that we could trust her to do the job right. Great work!

Recently Caroline assisted me in choosing colours for my newly built home. During the process I had already purchased rugs, linens and furniture. I was also trying to use many of my existing pieces of furniture. I was concerned that we would have trouble finding colours that could go with cool and warm tones. Caroline helped me choose paint tones that worked with both. Once everything was moved into the new home, II was thrilled with the look. She knew exactly what she was doing and I would feel more than confident recommending her to friends and family. She is very easy to converse with and honest with her ideas. Thank you Caroline for making my new home look terrific!
