When I moved into a new home after leaving a 20-year relationship I turned to DesignTheory to help me establish my new home.  I could not describe what I wanted in terms of colour and things.  I could only describe what I wanted in terms of its “spirit.”  Dol and Leanne not only listened – they heard what I had to say and were able to translate my feelings and what I needed into tangible reality.  They provided just the right balance between taking charge and making decisions with securing my opinion only on an as needed basis which suited me 100%.  They never “forced an issue” but at the same time didn’t shrink from offering a strong opinion on what would be best with consideration for both aesthetics and functionality.  They were completely transparent in all of their transactions and so my trusting them throughout the process was an easy thing for me to do.  I guess the best testimonial is that 2 years later when I moved again – they were my first phone call!

I would highly recommend the Adolphina and Leanne from Designtheory.  As a general contractor managing client expectations, timeline and budget are crucial.  Both Dol and Leanne integrated into our team of trades and helped to deliver an outstanding finish product that we all are extremely proud of.  I look forward to working with them on future projects.

We valued the depth of knowledge that Leanne and Adolphina brought to our renovation – especially for technical details such as countertops and window dressings. Their recommendations went beyond aesthetics to include use, wear, and upkeep. Thanks to their advice, I feel that we didn’t just make purchases but investments that will work for us and last. Finally, Leanne and Adolphina are a whole lot of fun – they were a sheer pleasure to work with.

We recommend Designtheory Inc. to anyone in need of design support or such services requiring creative knowledge in this area. We are pleased to say we have received many positive comments on this projects outcome and are pleased to recommend Designtheory to our future clients. During the design process Leanne and Adolphina didn’t only see the clients overall vision but were able to communicate it to the rest of the team to support our build in a timely manner. They both showed a high level of dedication to the project, it was great to watch the project come to fruition.

Leanne and Adolphina of Designtheory Inc. were a pleasure to work with. We hired them to decorate our new modern custom home in Port Credit. Their level of service was excellent and accommodated our timeline and budget. They were open to incorporating some of our existing pieces into the design and suggested others that would compliment them. They took the time to come to various furniture and lighting showrooms with us to review the options we were contemplating and helped us narrow down the choices. They provided excellent advice on design direction in terms of style, fabric selections, overall colour palette, and quality and selection for furnishings.

We wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to family and friends – they did an outstanding job making our home exactly how we envisioned!

Designtheory Inc. is currently working with me on designing my home in Toronto. I am thrilled with everything we have worked on together and excited about the way the house is evolving. Dol and Leanne have worked tirelessly, from seeking out the perfect fabric to coordinating details with multiple vendors. They are organized, warm, extremely talented, and have a great ability for combining different elements harmoniously. They have quickly developed a sense of each of my family member’s tastes and has sought out the perfect pieces of furniture, fabric, pillows, drapes, area carpets, etc, to compliment and meet everyone’s needs. I recommend them highly and without reservation, and feel they possess a unique style which sets them apart from other designers.

We had been searching for an interior designer for a remodel of our newly purchased house in Toronto. After looking at a number of different designers, we were referred to Designtheory and we both loved their style. Upon meeting Leanne and Dol it was clear that we would enjoy working together and throughout the design process it felt as much like collaborating with friends as it did working with professionals. It has been six months since Designtheory helped transform our home, and friends and family always comment on how fantastic everything seems to work together. We could not give Dol and Leanne a higher recommendation.
