What they are saying about William MacDonald

default image

Bill is a Renaissance Man and an eclectic thinker. He did 2 projects for us: a complete re-think of our country property in Caledon and a 2nd floor renovation in our city house in Toronto. He has an amazing sense of space and how to utilize it. His knowledge of decorating and implementing décor is exceptional. Bill is jovial, but very professional. Perhaps is strongest aptitude is his ability to build a relationship with the client, while encouraging the client to think “out of the box” and outside their comfort zone i.e. the client finds new depth and breadth of their own creativity. My wife and I would not to do any project without Bill at our side!

Bill MacDonald helped us choose the furnishings and interior decorations for a new condo we had purchased off plan in Toronto. He and his assistant attended meetings with the builders and advised us before hand and debriefed afterwards and assisted further when the builders changed what was on offer. What could have overwhelmed us turned into a real pleasure and excitement of choosing with his guidance. He is a very approachable man who is easy to get on with but exudes knowledge and style. I cannot speak too highly of Mr. MacDonald.

William (I know him as Bill) helped me through a couple of phases of renovation and interior design. He worked with my style and offered unique ideas that gave my home special touches I would have never thought to do. I have had so many compliments on the colours in my home — Bill’s specialty!

After the first meeting, it just worked, William caught my vision right away and he really knew how to bring out what we were thinking of. He did all the finishing; he brought everything together. He’s the reason for it coming together the way it has.
