"Terri was a pleasure to work with. We knew right from the initial meeting we wanted to work with her. She listened to us and understood what our vision was. Her insight and experience were crucial throughout the renovation process. She knew how to keep our design and our expected budget in line. Her planning and organizational skills are second to none and we would not have been able to do it without her. She managed to alleviate all of our renovation stresses and as a result, we now have a main floor that is functional and one we truly love. Thank you, Terri, looking forward to working with you again."

"Terri did an awesome job helping us finish our first floor. She started by listening and taking the time to understand what we liked and needed. She is super organized, professional and patient. She has a great eye for colour and has creative ideas. We are so happy with the end result and cannot wait to work on the second floor. We would highly recommend Terri."

" We worked with Terri over a few months and enjoyed every session we had with her. She is professional and helped steer us in the right direction with colours and shared some tips with our daughter for her place. We were able to go to the stores where the carpets and fabrics are so that we could choose from a wide variety. Once that step was complete, Terri went shopping with us, so that we would pick the right size, colour, shape, etc. of items that we needed for the final touches. She has many contacts to be able to look after all types of items required such as draperies, reupholstery, refinishing, etc. I would highly recommend working with Terri."

"I can't say enough about Terri. I can’t thank her enough for her expertise and encouragement. She has made our renovation process so much easier and less overwhelming. I have sang her praises numerous times over the last several months. She is extremely professional, organized, has a great sense of style and a wonderful way of putting me at ease. From the very beginning, you realize that she has your style in the forefront and not hers. She is a designer and decorator so that not only do the colours and fabrics match but size, function and placement are always considered as part of every decision. There is a bit of work, but she wants to take everything and everyone in the family into consideration right from the start. Questions include: is anyone left handed, how tall are your family members, do you have any pets, what fabrics does everyone like, what colours do you like, what patterns, what will be the function of the room and who will be using it? Then there are summaries of every meeting with documented pictures of choices we made for reference. There are options for furniture layout, positions for artwork, lists of what has been done and what still has to be done. I am not good at visualizing what something will look like especially after we gutted the main floor and parts of the second floor, but Terri certainly does and it looks beautiful once all the flooring, paint, lighting, furniture, cabinetry and accessories were in place. I can't recommend her enough."

"Oh Terri was wonderful to work with. I loved how she was always so encouraging, positive, and patient throughout our decorating adventure. She offered so many great suggestions and options and was able to put together exactly what I had envisioned. The other professionals that she collaborates with for window treatments and upholstering were also fabulous. I really appreciated that she worked with my older, previously loved pieces. We upholstered a chair of my grandma's. Beautiful and sentimental. I would absolutely recommend Terri to friends and family. Thank you Terri. You know how I love my new living room!"

"Terri came into our project in the final stages after having experienced frustration with our designer. She was able to immediately analyse our needs, work within our budget, and complete our project in a very timely manner. Our expectations were exceeded. She provided us with the necessary tools to do some shopping on our own, and we could zero in on exactly what we needed because of this. and saved time and $. She was a pleasure to work with, professional, incredibly helpful and punctual. Wish we had her from the beginning, but definitely it was better late than never. She has an excellent eye and we appreciated all she did for us."

"Terri Chabot was a pleasure to work with. She is professional, friendly and very personable. I instantly felt confident that I had made the right choice in choosing Chabot Interiors. Terri spent time understanding my preferences and lifestyle via questionnaires she sent me, through my Houzz ideabooks, and during a visit to my home. She came up with a floor plan that I liked and adapted it to incorporate any feedback I had. The personal shopping day with Terri was my favorite part of the experience. The whole day was planned and organized. While we shopped, I made changes to my initial decisions on furniture, and Terri adapted and incorporated those changes into my family room design. Terri was always very accessible, responsive and willing to change anything I wasn't 100% sure about. Terri also recommended outside sources to make my drapes and refinish and recover a chair and both projects turned out beautifully. I just received my furniture deliveries last week and everything looks amazing. In fact, my aunt said "It looks like a room out of a magazine". I look forward to working with Chabot Interiors in the future and strongly recommend Terri for any other projects. Thank you Terri!"

"Chabot Interiors' Terri is everything I need as an advisor in redesigning my interior living spaces.
She listens carefully to my ideas, makes suggestions to stretch my thinking and then designs and modifies over time a plan that addresses my ideas, needs, budget and time line creatively and effectively. She is flexible, patient and professional.
A day of personal shopping with Terri was fun and very successful in sourcing several high ticket items. Terri's trade and on line sources fit my needs very well.
All financial transactions have been transparent and accurate.
I highly recommend Terri and Chabot Interiors."

"Terri was such a pleasure to work with. She helped direct me through all of the details in organizing our kitchen/bathroom renovations. Her attention to detail is outstanding, her eye for colour, textures and decor are much appreciated, and she has an up to date, sparkle in her design ideas and suggestions. I loved meeting together and "shopping" for materials and accessories. Her professionalism and service is one I would certainly recommend to any of my family and friends."

"Terri can look at a space and see it's potential. She has the ability to ask the right questions to understand exactly what is needed. I relied on her to create a beautiful and functional space on a limited budget and it turned out amazing. She is very resourceful, creative and easy to work with. Terri guides your decisions and takes off all the pressure of making the wrong choices. I highly recommend her for any interior design projects if you want them to turn out just the way you never thought possible. What I perceived to be an overwhelming task soon became enjoyable and rewarding under Terri's expertise and creativity. I highly recommend Terri for anyone seeking a solid design professional with a high degree of talent and integrity."
"Terri is incredibly good at what she does. After a major home renovation, Terri was hired to help turn our great house into what it is now, our beautiful home. Terri has an innate ability to understand my style needs and preferences, never imposing her own style on my selections. Terri is extremely organized, very detail oriented and demonstrates a great deal of care in everything she does. My experience working with Terri has been excellent. She is personable, creative and very professional."
Note regarding Angie: I am currently helping her with her cottage. It is going to look fabulous!
"We hired Terri when we undertook a major home renovation to help us with the selection of finishes such as cabinetry, flooring, tiles and back splashes, upholstery and fabrics for window treatments and cushions. Terri is a consumate professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of suppliers and various materials was of immense help in selecting and evaluating finishes and we are very pleased with the outcome. Terri is flexible and accommodating and always looking for the best results for her clients. Her expertise is reflected in the style and mood of every room and we have received many compliments from family, friends and visitors. We would highly recommend Terri's services to anyone considering home renovations or final selections for new home construction."

"Terri is a very talented designer who I have the good fortune to work with on many occasions. She is professional, very pleasant and is mindful of her client's needs and preferences. I highly recommend her".
"My wife and I recently (2011 and 2015) contracted Chabot Interiors for not one but two major renovations. We were so pleased with the first job we had no hesitation in asking Terri to handle the second one. Terri Chabot is a true professional and superbly organized who provided excellent and practical advice. We couldn't be happier!"

"We can highly recommend working with Terri Chabot of Chabot Interiors. What started out as a smaller project (2010) that was so successful that we turned our time with Terri into a multi staged renovation project that included moving our laundry room to a different level and taking down a supporting wall in our main living space. Working with Terri made a very stressful situation move very smoothly! Terri always arrived with multiple ideas which she always presented in various ways including colour/fabric charts, photographs, magazine ideas and actual accessories that she had purchased for us to give a real life example of how things would look. Terri always listened to our ideas and incorporated our input making gentle suggestions to maximize the best use for our space. Terri has a gift for both interior design and working with people. Chabot Interiors is a very professional company that is on time, on budget and keeps you informed every step along the way. I would highly suggest that if you are looking for someone to help you create a space that is both balanced in beauty and efficiency, Terri is an excellent choice. Several years later we are still getting compliments about our new space and how welcoming and beautiful it has made our home."
