"We first worked with Leo in 2015 while re-decorating our dining room. In 2016 we decided to re-decorate the rest of the house. We approached Leo because I appreciated his attention to detail and his colour expertise. Georgina was also brought on board.
The result was a home that flows with welcoming colours, with each room a coordinated, complimentary part of the whole. We have a beautiful "new house"!
What I particularly liked was their focus on the customer's vision of the project. Ideas were freely exchanged and welcomed, while being mindful of budgetary guidelines. In short ----- no frictions!
I would recommend D'NOVO to people who want a Team who will harness the best of their expertise to make their decorating needs a reality."

"Georgina connected me with a number of her current and past clients who were in need of flooring or window coverings. On many occasions, I have visited these clients at their homes and have had the opportunity to see the colour palletes that Georgina has designed for them. I work with a number of designers and design firms, and can recognize the exceptional quality of Georgina’s work. What makes Georgina stand out is her ability to select colours that not only work together and look amazing, but also suit the tastes and expectations of her customers. This takes real talent and experience, and she brings both, leaving behind smiling customers who love the look of their homes."

"To say that Leo loves his work is an understatement. Leo worked on my condo, never rushing, always taking the time to check the final product. I was very pleased with his ability to transfer my ideas into the real thing.
Leo is innovative and creative regardless of the size of the project. The smaller the project, the bigger the challenge and Leo loves a challenge. He has an incredible eye for colour and style and will meticulously pick the exact shade and accessories. When a change is required he has the skill to think outside-the-box while still managing to work within the budget.
Thanks Leo for a job well done!"

"Georgina is a professional in every sense of the word. Her eye for detail and especially colour is amazing. She is extremely innovative and has the ability to create a personal style and mood to any home. Working with Georgina over the years has been enjoyable particularly with her warm personality and entertaining sense of humor. I highly recommend Georgina as the experience will linger for as long as the interior design she has created for you."

"I waited fifteen years and experienced futility with numerous other interior designers until I found Leo. Unlike other designers who have a “vision” for your space and just don’t listen to your desires or needs, Leo has a very practical and aim to please approach. Leo helped me pull together a perfect decor for my needs from paint to furniture, accessories, and wall art. He has a wonderful color sense and offers a very personalized service including shopping trips which are a lot of fun! I love my place now, it’s perfectly suited to my needs. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Leo as an interior designer. He has a wonderful personality and his rates are very affordable, thank you Leo!"

"From Shabby to Chic!
Chic may be a stretch for a West Coast “Box”, however, our house is the envy of the neighbourhood. We had a tired old standard house that we wanted to spruce up. Georgina gave us some amazing ideas for window trim to sharpen the look, and most importantly, a 4-colour palette that looks absolutely amazing. Our neighbours comment on how great it looks.
Georgina also helped us develop a great colour palette for our bathroom. My wife hated the bathroom because it felt tall and skinny. Georgina provided a two tone combination that not only coordinated the old tub with a new vanity, but the colours "magically" gave the bathroom a much cozier and less cavernous feeling.
Not only would I highly recommend Georgina for any advice, I will use her on my future projects to make sure we get it right the first time.
Thank you Georgina!"

"Leo Santana did a fabulous job helping to plan and host my birthday party at a local hall. He had lots of excellent suggestions for ways to decorate the rooms.
There was great attention to detail in sorting out the table settings, birthday themed accents around the hall. There were engaging activities for people to take part in for the party. It was very festive and memorable occasion."
