"We hired Veronica to help us on the renovation of our family cottage near Ottawa. We decided to hire a designer because we needed a capable expert to help guide us through the construction and design process while facilitating communication and decision-making between four owners/siblings.
Veronica's scope of work was to deliver a full construction drawings package along with furniture and lighting specifications. Veronica consistently exceeded expectations. She was extremely diligent, professional and very open and responsive to our feedback throughout the project.
We truly felt like she was a team player and helped make the entire experience a true delight.
Her years of experience shone through. She has the perfect combination of a great design eye along with excellent attention to detail, outstanding technical skill and excellent project management. This combination of skills can be very rare in a designer and is extremely valuable in ensuring the end product is both beautiful and on budget.
We would not hesitate to recommend Veronica to anyone. You won't be disappointed!"
"Working with Veronica has been a delight. She is thorough, thoughtful, and able to quickly, quietly and competently interpret your needs and wishes in a hallmark, classically modern style that will endure for years to come. She is comfortable and reliable to work with, and her design solutions are budget sensitive when that is an important consideration. Her strong sense of the fundamental elements of design such as composition, proportion, and scale delivers a casual elegance and restrained dramatic impact in even the smallest of details."

"We have worked with Veronica on a cottage construction for the last several months and it has been a pleasure. She listens extremely well and has a delightful manner. Her vision is clear and stylish, and she is decisive with her direction. Her working drawings are precise and produced in a timely manner. She is smart, organized, practical and unflappable. Our builder and architect consider her a valuable part of the team; her input has been critical to the cottage construction. We highly recommend her."
"We became clients of Veronica Martin in 2015. We were going through a major renovation in our home which included our kitchen, mudroom, laundry room, powder room and family room. While we felt we could handle most of the design decisions on our own, it soon became apparent that we needed help. We were becoming overwhelmed with all of the decisions/selections, so we turned to Veronica who quickly jumped right in. She was always available for us, our architect or our contractor whether it was to attend meetings, participate in conference calls or to provide design information/plans/clarification. Her quick turnaround time on any request was appreciated. Veronica assisted us with the selections of plumbing and lighting fixtures, cabinetry finishes, countertops, tiles and paint colours. She also suggested tweaks to our kitchen plan to improve the workflow and efficiency and, now that we are using the kitchen, we are so glad that she suggested these changes. Our kitchen is stunning, the family room is updated and our mudroom & laundry room are more functional. Veronica was a pleasure to work with on this project. We would not hesitate to recommend her or use her again in future."
"Our 2,000 sq ft 1970's home was in great need of a renovation. Veronica provided us with an updated floor plan and layout that 'wowed' us - use of space; attention to flow and sight lines; and addressing problem areas. This was done within a quick turn around time and while meeting our requirement for universal design. She also provided us with advice on how best to incorporate our exterior living space. Veronica was a pleasure to work with."
"Veronica Martin exceeded our expectations when it came to the redesign of our kitchen. She did the drawings and oversaw the renovation. When it came time to order the lights, the window treatments and the furniture, she listened to what we wanted and came back with suggestions—and we ultimately went with her choices each time. I would recommend her services to anyone. Our new kitchen is stunning."
“Veronica was outstanding. She took us through the process of transforming two rooms in our house faster than I could have imagined. Veronica was systematic in her approach and made the process simple for us. She met with us initially to determine our tastes then returned with a proposed layout and design scheme. She was extremely skilled in providing us with options that suited our tastes and were within our budget. She has a very good understanding of the design scene in Canada and can easily source furniture for any project. I would recommend Veronica without hesitation.”
“One of the biggest challenges people face with construction is staying within budget. Veronica has shown herself to be essential in keeping projects on track by coming into them with a well defined design plan which results in fewer changes and additional charges. Her creativity, knowledge, and structure, ensure that each project is inspiring and functional.”
