Sheri brings a breath of fresh air in approach, and she did a great job of balancing her input with our ideas and decisions. We hadn’t worked with a designer before and were afraid we would end up with a place that was hers, not ours. We had a very small window of time to outfit the home and we spent a couple of full days with Sheri shopping from place to place based on her knowledge of what was where. She had filtered through our combined ideas and saved us a huge amount of time in the actual stores. If we pointed out something one of us liked, she would either endorse it, or subtly shake her head no. We never felt rebuked, and laughed a lot during the process.
For those who haven’t used a designer before, you may not be aware of the cost savings afforded you by doing so. Sheri has a great working relationship with the folks in the design industry in Kelowna. We think a great working relationship between a designer and a client is one that is open and honest. We had that with Sheri. She knew our budget and we were able to make quick, concrete decisions with our choices.
The end result is one we love, and we have talked many times about how much fun the process was, and how we would like to do another house one day. The fact that we would choose Sheri in a heartbeat, even years after our project, tells me she did a great job. We would be happy to speak with anyone who is considering working with Sheri and who might have questions.
