Testimonials

“Jamie and Greer did an amazing job finishing and furnishing our home. We had nearly completed a full renovation of our character home but could not bring ourselves to complete the final steps, so we hired Jamie and Greer. They thought of everything, right down to water glasses, kid’s art displays and jewelry holders. They even went to the city archives to find a picture of a place that was meaningful to our family and blew it up to make a beautiful piece of art. I had seen homes that Jamie and Greer had done before so my expectations were high, but they will managed to exceed them. Thank you for helping to elevate our style, Jamie and Greer – we’re thrilled!”

“Greer and Jamie did a great job for us. They were fun to work with, and were quite responsive to our ideas and preferences.We contacted them prior to a move when my wife and I were having some difficulty settling on decor for the new home, and which furniture to replace/repair/reupholster, etc. We were moving into a fully restored house built over a century ago. Their careful planning balanced respect for the building’s heritage, and the demands of living in a modern house. The results are a home that is very, very beautiful, but still very much a home.”

Dan Tidball - Vancouver, B.C.

“Working with Jamie and Greer was an absolute pleasure and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for design services. My husband and I recently renovated and refurnished our townhouse and, thanks to Jamie and Greer, our place now looks amazing. Throughout the processes, Jamie and Greer provided thoughtful guidance and support, suggested new and innovative ideas and ultimately elevated our style. Even though we were involved throughout the process, the end result was beyond our wildest expectations. I would absolutely work with Jamie and Greer again.”

“My wife and I had purchased a new house in anticipation of our move to Vancouver from China. We hired Oliver Simon Design to furnish our house while we tied up loose ends back home. We wanted the home to be ready to move into when we arrived to start our new life in Canada.
Oliver Simon Design came highly recommended and were very professional throughout the project. The attention to detail was excellent and we were extremely pleased with everything they did. Our home is beautiful. We are thrilled to be living in Canada and to be starting our lives here in such lovely surroundings.”

“Wonderful people, wonderful service and great designs. I absolutely recommend Oliver Simon Design for anyone contemplating hiring interior design services.”

John Holland - Vancouver, B.C.

“I was building a new home and looking for an interior designer to help me from the very beginning of the project. After an initial consultation, they created a detailed report that included inspiration photos, layouts as well as specifications on all fixtures, lighting and tiles that we used to coordinate with the builder and the trades. They met all the deadlines and stayed within the budget I specified. Their excellent organizational and communication skills made my life so much easier during a stressful build.
They created a beautiful home that was exactly what I envisioned plus more. They gathered all my scattered ideas and photos and turned them into a cohesive look that will never go out of style! I highly recommend Oliver Simon Design to anyone wanting to create their dream home.”

Patricia Shew - Vancouver, B.C.

We hired Jamie and Greer to design the main floor and basement of our home. Their enthusiasm, creativity, professionalism and sourcing knowledge made the process very enjoyable. The end result is a beautiful space that reflects the tastes of both my husband and I. They were wonderful to work with and did an amazing job with our home! We would recommend them in a flash to anybody who’s looking for a strong collaborative design team.

Amy and Brent Disbrow - Vancouver, B.C.

What a delight it was to see my new, smaller home put together so artfully by Jamie and Greer. Their resourcefulness with new furniture in our living space works well for a small group of friends, yet is adaptable for a larger gathering. I truly love how they took my own art and treasures and arranged them in a way that is beautiful and unforgettable for us – brings back all the memories of our travels. I appreciate their knowledge and creativity while staying within a budget and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Barbara and Roger Purdy - North Vancouver, B.C.

Jamie and Greer were exactly what we were looking for. They truly made our house feel like a home, and seamlessly blended the most wonderful mix of eclectic and modern. We were not looking for a cookie cutter design, we wanted something that fit our neighbourhood (Railtown), and complemented our personalities. We got just that, and within our limited budget. We would highly recommend them to anyone.

Stefan and Chelsea - East Vancouver, B.C.

Oliver Simon Design provided us with excellent service when choosing and decorating our newly renovated home. Our taste and budget were taken into consideration and all was done in a timely manner.
We loved the “installment” service they offer. All furniture and decorative items were professionally assembled and placed, then “revealed” to us at the end of the day.
My husband and I found Jamie and Greer a pleasure to work with and would not hesitate to recommend their services or to use them again.

Jan Chadburn - White Rock, B.C.

We hired Oliver Simon Design based on a recommendation from a friend. We were thoroughly impressed by the level of professionalism and commitment they had to our project. They helped us with the finishings on a major renovation as well as interior design for our finished home. I felt they understood our style and worked within the budget and conditions we provided to them. We are very happy with the finished product and look forward to working with them again soon!

Natasha Trisko Pezzente - North Vancouver, B.C.

I was struggling to complete this project on my own and it became obvious that I was not being efficient with the use of my time and money. Jamie and Greer walked me through the process of furnishing and decorating my condo with great focus on the details. The project was managed very professionally and we had several meetings to scope the work, review the progress and make some decisions on the go and I felt that my feedback was always appreciated. I wanted to achieve something that shows my personality as well as my background and their work exceeded my expectations. When there were issues during the project they recommended different options to solve them and while the project lasted longer than expected and was above budget it was due to the fact that changes were incorporated on the go. If you are looking for a team that pays attention to the details and stand behind their work I strongly recommended working with Jamie and Greer, you will not regret your investment.

Santiago Cadena - Vancouver, B.C.

Jamie and Greer have the ability to recognize the needs of the client and tie it in successfully to the client’s budget while at the same time suggesting relevant ideas and furnishings. Presentations of ideas were timely and represented the client’s tastes, while at the same time opening up new and fresher looks and palettes. A very professional company, able to interact with and, most of all, listen to the client.
We found them to be easy to talk to, able to negotiate differing family points of view, and come up with ideas that worked. Delivery of services met expected deadlines and nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble,,,,even if we did change our minds. They appear to have good contacts with trades which in turn helps the client. We are very pleased with what we have achieved so far and look forward to the final result.

Pat and Clive Hanbury - Vancouver, B.C.

I worked with Oliver Simon Design to decorate and finish off my condo. I couldn’t be happier with the results, and Jamie and Greer were great to work with. The whole process was as stress-free as possible, and I was kept up to date at all times. I would highly recommend them to anyone redecorating or redesigning a space.

Michael Alderdice - Vancouver, B.C.

When I asked Jamie and Greer for a ‘zen beach castle in the sky’, they didn’t even flinch, in fact they were ecstatic. They got straight to work and presented incredibly unique and well thought out concepts, patterns and color schemes that seamlessly flowed throughout the apartment but still gave each area its own distinct character. Their ideas were consistently fitting to the theme, yet were practical, smart, and visually appropriate for each space. The outcome is truly exactly what I asked for and more – they took my idea and gave it wings, and now I sit everyday surrounded by stunning textures, hues and personal touches that were chosen with love, just for me. Their client service is second to none. They listen very well, read between the lines, and their passion and professionalism shined from start to finish. They always made me feel like I was part of the process even though their talent and eye for style was leaps and bounds beyond my own imagination. Making the choice to work with these professionals was the best decision I could have made to decorate my first home. I can’t wait to work with them again.
