Thanks to your vision and ability to see the big picture of how everything works together,
our renovation has far exceeded our expectations.
Your effective designing of space allowed us to get everything we wanted out of the renovation within the existing footprint.

What at first felt like an overwhelming task – choosing fabrics, colours, furniture, cabinets, hardware, countertop, flooring, lighting, art work – was in fact an organized and seamless process under your expert guidance. You understood our tastes immediately and helped us narrow down our choices quickly.

You listened carefully and steered us in the right direction to make the right choices and always within our budget. The end result of your expertise is a beautiful newly renovated home where we feel completely comfortable. Our new space suits our family's tastes and needs perfectly.

Shannon, you are a delight to work with and we could not have completed the renovation without you. Thank you!

Shannon is fabulous at putting a room together based on your taste and your family’s needs.
I’m happy and so is my husband – we’ve received such great value for the money we spent. I recommend Shannon to all my friends looking for help with design and decorating although I do admit I sometimes hesitate sharing her with others. I have a new list of home projects I want to complete and I want to be sure Shannon is always available to help me!


updated living room, dining room and family room through wall colour, window treatments, furniture and accessories + renovated basement for more useable family space and storage
I recently renovated two bathrooms in my home. This was the second time I worked with McDonald Designs. As always and as expected, the project went smoothly from start to finish. Shannon provides knowledge and expertise about how to source products and makes sure things move along seamlessly. Her attention to detail means nothing is missed and the finished product is a beautiful space.
Working with Shannon saved us valuable time and energy.
McDonald Designs will always save clients time and money. Thanks, Shannon.

I am giving thanks and praise to Shannon McDonald. My husband and I have just finished having our entire kitchen renovated.
This enormous task was successful because of Shannon’s direction, input, insight and expertise.

When we started we did not grasp the scope of the project, which is why it would have been overwhelming without Shannon. We are in awe of her professional design approach and meticulous planning. She kept us abreast of all decisions needing to be made and always set appropriate timelines. Shannon has a wealth of contacts so she was able to guide us to the best resources and people.

We could always count on Shannon to follow through on plans and schedule meetings with our contractor team. We simply could not have tackled this kitchen renovation project without her. It is with utmost respect that I recommend Shannon McDonald.

We have always come to Shannon when we want expert help sprucing up a room.
Everything Shannon has done for us – we’re thrilled!
We recommend her to all our friends and family. Recently she made our family room feel so comfortable and homey. Shannon found us the perfect sofa, the perfect rug and then all the perfect accessories. Whether you’re planning a big project or just want help finding the perfect sofa, we recommend Shannon without hesitation.
