Suzanne Fast has a lot of great ideas. Whether it's a design for a new or modern space or she's refurbishing or updating a traditional old home, Suzanne knows how to make a place look impressive. She knows how to add zest with paint colors, where to put what, how to design new spaces, decorate offices and to create wow appeal with focal pieces such as a new door. Suzanne designed the finishes and windows for a custom door that has created a buzz in the neighborhood. Suzanne rescued me when my 16 yo daughter drove through the carriageway floor to ceiling window in front of our tiny parking spot. An easy mistake for a new driver and we saw it as a chance to renovate that section. Suzanne did a fabulous job re-designing the area, and her husband John Grass, General Manager at Pat Powers Construction, worked with his team to rebuild it. They decided to frame the bottom section, then put in new windows and door. Suzanne chose sandblast glass as a window finish for privacy and dark brown paint for the outside and trim. It's stunning. Suzanne is now choosing paint colors for the office and helping with suggestions for the waiting room. Suzanne is flexible and has fluid ideas. She doesn't get stuck on one style of design, instead she generates lots of ideas. She makes time to meet with clients soon after they contact her, and she is always on time. Suzanne has a great attitude and is fun to work with. She makes small changes that have a big impact for those on a limited budget, and can handle big budgets for those lucky enough to make dreams come true with a custom home, cottage or office. Notes to the door: it was inspired when on a tour of German countryside where many houses had doors with personality. Doors were researched on Houzz and I found one I loved. Frank Hawley, Sales Representative at Aaben Windows in Kingston, coordinated the project. He asked Bruce Schaus from Fibercraft Door Company to custom make the door. Suzanne Fast chose finishing stains and door handles, she selected the privacy glass for the windows, and was involved in all design aspects for the door.

Suzanne has been an invaluable resource for us over the past 6 years. She has helped guide us through 1 cottage and 2 home renovations during that time. Suzanne listened carefully to what we liked/hoped for and was able to custom tailor her extensive knowledge and skill to enable our vision to be realized. She walked us through initial design layouts right through to choosing fixtures and paint colours, and so much more. Her attention to detail helped us avoid issues we couldn't have anticipated.

We have worked with Suzanne on a number of projects - a Kitchen Renovation, an Attic Restoration and a Lake Home Build, and she is a real pleasure to work with. She is insightful and creative and has amazing technical skills. She's works with clients and the trades with grace and professionalism.As a client who often reaches a design decision by process of elimination, Suzanne has always been very helpful in guiding us through the process to find what will work best for us. We would highly recommend Suzanne for projects of any size and scope.

Time and time again, when ever I mention whom I was working with its the same response. "Suzanne is amazing".

We recently completed a whole home renovation and addition to our mid-century home. Suzanne was extremely helpful in keeping us on track with our continuity of design, making sure that all our elements related to one another, from the cabinetry, tile and lighting down to the fixtures and colour scheme. She really helped us see how we could pull new elements and modernity into our existing home and make it all work together with our existing pieces. Suzanne has great ideas, is mindful of budget, and has a very sharp eye that she uses to find just the right accent to make everything work. Always a calm and reassuring presence, Suzanne was a delight to work with and we learned a lot from her during the process.
