Dianne was WONDERFUL to work with! We met her at the Homeshow at the Sports Centre in Belleville. Right away she was very kind, informative, and helpful. A couple days after the show she called us to step up an appointment. She spent a few hours at our home looking at plans, asking questions about interests and our thoughts on decor. The meeting was very pleasant and insightful.
Dianne very easily took my confusing thoughts and ideas and made sense of our vision. She took pictures of our special belongings that would be going into the space to make sure that it all flowed nicely together. After the meeting we waited a couple of days (she is very quick) and we sat down with her to go through her design. it was spectacular!! It was more than what we were looking for. She nailed our vision on the head.
The paint colours were perfect, the flow of them through the house, and the tile for the bathroom was amazing! We ordered exactly what she wrote down for us because we loved it so much! In addition, Dianne went above and beyond as she made sure that the tile company had the tile sorted and ready for us to check it out. I have only wonderful things to say about Dianne. She is a lovely woman to work with and incredibly talented. I would not hesitate to hire her again.

Since moving to our home in 2007, we have use the services of Dianne on three occasions and were very satisfied with her decorative arrangements. From colour suggestions, reorganizing furniture, window dressing to light fixtures. We are pleased with the end product.

Very professional. She listened to our requirements and made suggestions and recommendation based on these. She did a good follow up in a timely manner. Although we did not continue with the project renovation we would definitely use her again for other projects as well as recommend her to others.

I first learned of Dianne's remarkable talent when I entered her Old East Hill home. Her colour choices were dynamic and exciting. Her sense of style and proportion were excellent. I asked to see her portfolio of work she had done in Toronto, including her Beaches home. She had the Wow! factor in every single room. Immediately, I asked her to design our new kitchen.
We were very pleased to discover that she took our lifestyle in mind when she began her process. She knew that we love to entertain and explored our cupboards to find out what items I would need to store. The initial design was gorgeous. With a bit of tweaking, she expanded on her original ideas and we have a beautiful room that is amazing.
Her attention to detail is excellent. Her understanding of colour is exceptional. I always thought i could differentiate colours, but quickly learned that I had to stand back and let a pro do it.
She helped me pick my wall colours, she advised me not to choose the stain for the wood that we had picked and told me the many reasons why, she streamlined for us the arduous tasks of selecting granite, then patiently picked through stacks of tile samples. The sinks, the taps, the barstools that she found for a discounted price on the internet... they all ad up to the word I was looking for. When people walk into our kitchen, they say wow!
I thank Dianne for everything she did to help Dave and I and would happily recommend her services to everyone!

We had the pleasure of hiring Dianne Bartlett for an interior design consultation this past summer.
Although I knew her in a social sense, Dianne presented herself as a consummate professional and was prompt and efficient in all aspects of our meeting. She had wonderful ideas for our home that took into consideration our particular needs and tastes, and she listened to what we liked and wanted as well. We are putting many of her ideas into place as we speak! Dianne gave us some great referrals for the work we needed done, and when she found out we were having trouble booking people because of the busy summer season, went above and beyond and followed up further with new references. Her follow up has been great, it's not often you have a service provider that will actually stand behind their recommendations and follow up with you months later.
We would highly recommend Dianne to do any and all aspects of design consult and would not hesitate to use her services again in the future.

Thirteen years ago when I bought my condo, Dianne provided guidance when I was overwhelmed with choosing tiles, flooring and cabinet finishes. She explained what to look for and helped me make choices that are still in good shape today. She also selected a paint palette for my home that I continue to adhere to.
Dianne has an excellent eye and is respectful of her clients' tastes. I found her easy to work with and would happily work with her again.
