"I am thrilled with my "new" living room thanks to Debbie. Her guidance and ideas at our initial consultation allowed me to confidently make my own choices for the furniture and yet avoid costly blunders. At our second consultation she helped select the paint and fine tune my choices of accessories for the room. She also made a few more recommendations that truly pulled it all together. She has an eye for details I would never have seen. She provided the foundation and I still had the opportunity to be creative (a nice way to say, shop) which really worked for me. By the way, I love watching those decorating shows and am proud to say I got a room I love and came in well under budget! Thank you, Debbie. I look forward to our next project. Whether you need someone to do it all or to simply add a trained eye to doing it yourself, Debbie brings an excellent level of professionalism and know how."

""They say good things come to those who wait. Well, I figured that, at age 49, I had waited long enough to have a nicely decorated house. The problem was, I didn't know where or how to begin fixing decades of decorating mistakes. Actually, to call what I had done "decorating" seriously insults anyone who has either professional training or amateur good taste. Rather, I was living in a house where no room flowed smoothly into the next -either in colour or style. Plus, the situation was made even more complicated by the fact that my husband, who travels all over the globe, had collected "treasures" from almost every country he visited. And, he expected each of these treasures to be displayed prominently Debbie MacIsaac, of Personally Yours Interiors came to my rescue. Debbie approached what really became a complete "overhaul" of .our home in a very logical fashion.
We first identified the colour scheme that we wanted to carry through the house, then proceeded with choosing fabrics, rugs, furniture-and its placement, window treatments, paint colours, lighting ,art, and, finally, accent pieces. The process was that Debbie did all the leg-work, then presented me with a selection of great choices! Patience is not my strong suit, but I couldn't be more please with the result. While we have a definite colour scheme throughout the house, in no way is any room a carbon copy of another. Each room has its own distinctive personality - a personality that is a reflection of our own (not Debbie's!). In fact, there were many things (e.g., my husband's treasures, our children's artwork, family memorabilia,gifts from friends) that were "not up for discussion", and Debbie incorporated those items into our newly decorated home with the same diligence as an item chosen from Horchow.
I often tell people that there are two people who have greatly increased the quality of my life: Martha Stewart, for my ever-expanding repertoire of recipes, and Debbie MacIsaac, for my beautifully decorated home. We love sitting down to a delicious meal in our gorgeous dining room, raising a toast to both of them!"

"What started as a desire to update our living room by recovering two sofas and an armchair, turned into repeated requests for Debbie to work her magic again and again. I admittedly question my colour choices and am intimidated by making decorating decisions. From the start Debbie recognized this and worked with me to discover what colour scheme I truly loved. The rest just followed. Her recommendations on accessorizing, where to shop and also providing some personal shopping, helped with our many room makeovers. Her business contacts have been a wonderful resource for us. She always gave a personal testimonial for each contact she provided.
Debbie has become our go to professional for all our decorating needs. She inspires confidence and produces results that we are thrilled to show off."
"Hiring Debbie MacIsaac of Personally Yours Interiors to help me pick out new paint for my main floor was the best investment of time and money. Working with the things I loved in my house and the natural light exposure, Debbie was able to find the perfect paint colour combination to enhance the decor of my home and achieve the look I was striving for. Debbie not only taught me about some of the things to be taken into consideration when choosing colour but she also helped me coordinate patterns and colours that could be integrated in the future. I highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to update their home."

"Debbie MacIsaac of Personally Yours Interiors has consulted with us on two projects. She recommends contractors and sub-contractors to use and carefully oversees all aspects of the jobs. We found her easy to work with and very knowledgeable. The results have been amazing.
The first project was a kitchen reno. Her insight, help and professionalism were invaluable. She saw what we were hoping for and made it happen. Her contacts in the industry are widespread. She helped with all aspects of the kitchen from new cupboards, new entrance into the dining room, counter colour and style, backsplash tiles and paint colours. The result was exactly what we were looking for.
Our second project was a major renovation of our family room, full basement, hardwood throughout the house and new spindles, railings and stairs (3 levels). She designed a whole new fireplace wall with shelving, cupboards and mantel. She also helped us to find the right granite surround plus helped choose the style for custom made doors. It looks amazing. Debbie recommended ar architect technologist and the general contractor, plus the painters and the hardwood people. She oversaw all aspects of the reno, including furniture placement (and purchase of new where required). Choosing the right pant colours was much more involved than I had ever thought about! It is amazing what the right paint colours add to rooms.
Debbie coordinated everything with the general contractor so everything ran smoothly. The whole project took about 5 months from start to finish. We are extremely pleased with all the work Debbie did for us and recommend her to all our friends. When we have new projects in mind she will be our first call."
