…I was a bit worried that everything I had done to make our house more appealing would be wrong and would need to be changed. You were incredibly tactful with your suggestions. As soon as you suggested changing something I could see that you were right and things did look better. You made the process fun for me! I felt like I was just hanging out with a girlfriend, switching things up! Not painful at all.
In 2018 I bought a house in Peterborough and found Angie Chapman through her website. I liked the premise of her business – that she put the client first, not only in matters of taste and style, but also in terms of the process and how she and the client work together.
From the moment we met, I found Angie to be flexible, personable and fun to work with. My new home was a big project, as I had virtually no furniture, so we were starting from scratch. For a little over a year, Angie and I worked closely together and met often, usually once or twice a week.
I was delighted with the process am totally delighted by the result. My home is filled with things that I love, that feel like ‘me’. Angie and I worked together to create that result. Some of her ideas – painting the guest room chest of drawers bright red, using two styles of dining chairs – were things I would never had thought of or dared to do, but that add another level of surprise and delight to my home.
Another benefit of using Angie was that she had connections to reliable and skilled tradespeople – painters, cabinet makers, construction people for some minor remodelling, tile and carpet installers, and so on, which made the process much easier than if I had had to source and hire them myself.
People say to me, ‘But using a designer is so expensive!’. My response is always that using a designer has saved me time but also has saved me money – the money I would have spent buying things that didn’t create the end result I really wanted. An unexpected benefit from working with Angie was that I developed more confidence in my own taste and purchasing decisions as I selected things and she (most of the time) agreed with my choices…and when she didn’t agree, could explain why that wasn’t a good choice, so I learned a lot along the way.
I highly recommend Angie Chapman and Interiors Just For You. Thanks to her, the year-plus process of outfitting my new house was a joy and I now delight in living in a home that pleases me in every respect.
Angie from Interiors Just For You was an absolute blessing in the overwhelming process of renovating our kitchen and bathroom. Her guidance and expertise was immeasurable. We are so very happy with our results! When the next renos begin, we will be sure to call Angie back!
When I decided to update my bathroom I was overwhelmed by all the different options I had to choose from so I called Angie at Interiors Just For You. Angie listened to what I wanted and helped me with all the details big and small. She coordinated and oversaw the whole renovation and made sure that everything was done correctly and on time.
I also decided to paint the kitchen cupboards and add a new tile backsplash. The tiles and colours Angie chose transformed my whole kitchen.
I am absolutely thrilled with the results and would highly recommend Angie to others.

We recently renovated our kitchen and Angie took the time to understand our style and our needs making the decisions easier. She helped us with the design, colours, cabinetry and all the details needed to work with our existing flooring and compliment the rest of our house. Her backsplash selection was absolutely inspiring. We love our kitchen – its more efficient, there is space for everything and easy to clean. Whenever we entertain, our guests are in awe of our new kitchen.

Angie’s sense of decorating, working with the various vendors, coordinating punctual installations and working within the homeowners budget was first class. We highly recommend her services.

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job you and your company have done with our farmhouse retreat. From a house that was nothing but drywall and dust you chose the paints, furniture, style and design for every room in our house. The results are amazing. We love it. We now enjoy a contemporary country style home that reflects our tastes and family perfectly. In particular, your company’s attention to detail in the kitchen and our daughter’s bedroom make these rooms feel so inviting and warm. Our friends and family have enjoyed many stays with us in our home away from home. All of which would not have been possible without your hard work. It was an absolute pleasure working with a company that can meet deadlines as well as budgets with such professional and aesthetically pleasing results. Look forward to working with you again soon.

Angie worked for me for 7 years on the front lines in my real estate brokerage. I have sold 2 of her homes both with multiple offers and way over list price. She has given my clients great staging and decorating advice to make them more money when they sold their homes. She gives great no-nonsense advice. I highly recommend Angie.

Dear Angie, Now that we are settled in our new home and enjoying the wonderful transformation you have brought about, we want to offer our thanks and appreciation. This was the first time we had engaged an interior designer to guide us in renovating a new home and we are glad we did. More importantly, we’re glad we chose you. Your insight into what we were hoping to achieve was what made the difference between just repainting or redecorating and completely upgrading to today’s standards of style and comfort. Your suggestions were both constructive and cost-effective and we now have a home that is far more satisfying – and valuable – than it otherwise would have been. And since we were living at a distance during the project, we could never have done it without you. You kept tabs on every detail and saw it through to completion.
