Testimonials

"I worked with Garna on a complete re-do of my 3-bedroom condo which included floors throughout, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, new counter tops, painting, and all new furniture. It was a pleasure to work with her and all her contractors, all of whom were completely professional and punctual. Garna's sense of colour took me to completely new places in terms of decorating and a year after completion, I still love my new look. Garna was always quick to get back to me and answered all of my questions. She had great sources, and took me to places with pieces exactly to my taste and our concept, saving me a huge amount of time. I don't have an ounce of decorating ability but Garna had the big picture and made it all happen. " — S Sims, Mississauga

"I have repeatedly used Creative Colour Works to help choose paint colours, carpet choices and furniture recovering. Garna has always been punctual, friendly, knowledgeable, always offering great ideas and suggestions. She accompanied me shopping to find 'pieces' to compliment the redecorated living and dining room. She made the experience extremely positive and fun."
— B Fischer, Burlington

Can work with all budgets and is an unrelenting taskmaster when it comes to managing contractors and other suppliers. Full service offered, available weekends, extensive network, can recommend contractors and suppliers who have all been pre-vetted. Have nothing but good to say about Creative Colour Works, have used them repeatedly and wouldn't consider anyone else. Enormous value-added in each project undertaken." — E Martin, Toronto

"We have employed Garna Tracy of Creative Colour Works for a number of projects and because of our great satisfaction have just used her services again. This project was to update our main floor laundry room, powder room and rear entryway.

Garna has an enthusiasm and passion for her work. She listens carefully to her clients, quickly and accurately assesses and evaluates their level of risk and need for support and then provides a variety of options reflecting this." — L&D Wright, Toronto

"My husband and I have a long-standing relationship with Creative Colour Works and it's owner Garna Tracy. There are many things we love about Garna's decorating style.

The value added here is Garna's passion for helping people. She understands that we don't have her knowledge of decorating and always ensures that whatever her team does meets her high standard." — K Donovan, Ottawa

"Garna Tracy of Creative Colour Works helped us in every way. First she suggested what should be done to our new-to-us townhouse in order to bring it up to the modern day. She then brought in all the trades we required and project managed them to bring it all in on budget.

It was a complete service from start to finish and she always wore a smile. Thank you!" — N Datrino, Mississauga
