what our clients are saying...

"Mimi is magnificent!"

"Ten years ago, my husband & I wrestled with the decision to move to one-level living in a luxury condo in Westboro, a very desirable neighbourhood in Ottawa, with our four-year old daughter. Mimi guided us from reviewing the floor plans (to see if we could really do this!) to a complete interior design of the condo.

From the paint colour to the furniture, to window treatments, she made us realize that every choice we made for our home impacted the overall look and feel. Mimi helped us blend chic with practical & for our daughter’s room created a gorgeous retreat where she could have fun or relax. Mimi helped us make use of all the space wisely through innovative built-ins. Thanks to her ingenuity, we have no wasted space!

Choosing fabrics, furniture & even knobs & trying to ensure sure it all flows together can be a daunting task. Mimi was able to determine our tastes, style & budget and then gather products from reputable suppliers (i.e. paint samples, fabrics, furniture) and tradespeople & provide us with three or four packages of options to chose from. This service was so valuable!

Because our condo is well designed and well thought out, it is a pleasure to come home to. We love our home & could not have achieved this sophisticated yet family-friendly comfortable space without Mimi’s help!"

​​"When it came time to renovate our heritage home in Cabbagetown, we called on Mimi to help us. Our goal was to maintain the beauty of the traditional style, while giving the house a refreshing contemporary feel. The rooms involved were the kitchen and bathroom. We had a good idea of what we wanted to do, but didn’t know how to achieve it. The biggest challenge was to reconfigure the rooms to improve the functionality within the limits of the space. Mimi did a great job of guiding us through her clear renderings and precise measurements. She also helped us to choose the right furnishings, lighting, colours, and finishes. Her choices resonated with our personal taste, while expanding our minds to new possibilities. The finished products are more beautiful and functional than we could have imagined. Most of all, Mimi was professional, creative, and pleasure to work with. Now we love entertaining in our home and we beam with pride when guests complement our impeccable taste. Thank you Mimi!"

"We have used Mimi's services for two condos - one a refit of an old unit the other the design of a new build unit - and have been exceptionally pleased with the results both times. Mimi has excellent space design capabilities - with the refitted condo the amount of usable space increased dramatically and the whole condo opened up. Mimi was also able to expertly translate our conceptual ideas into a finished product as we envisioned. We were able to incorporate custom elements into the design at reasonable costs. We have received many complements on both units. The fact that Mimi could co-ordinate the onsite work and supervision was an added bonus for our busy work schedule. We received regular and timely updates on budgets and Mimi was flexible to accommodate changes to the design work, within reason, as the project progressed. We would definitely use Mimi again for future projects and would recommend her services to others."

"Mimi has given us excellent, creative design advice on a number of projects over many years. Most recently, she came up with a design to modernize the living area of our cottage and created a beautiful, peaceful, spacious room where we love to unwind and entertain. In the past, Mimi has redesigned the bedroom, bathroom and living room in our Toronto home with spectacular results! Mimi has always given us excellent advice when selecting paint colours and fabrics. She is responsive, approachable, friendly and keeps to her client's budget. We are happy to recommend Mimi Pineau Design!"

"Mimi has an excellent sense of style and a keen eye for colour. She is easy to talk and does not push her ideas onto you. She listens to the client and gently suggests ideas. She has a good sense of humour which is reflected in her ideas and suggestions. She uses wonderful tradespeople who are very respectful and talented. "

"Great experience working with Mimi Pineau. She designed my master bedroom ensuite bath in 2008 and I recently just sold my house. Everyone loved the renovation and it is still so contemporary. I also saw some of her work in other houses and she does very nice work."
