Thank you Debbie for your help with choosing a perfect carpet and paint colour for my home. The change is amazing. I couldn’t have done it without your assistance, patience and expertise.

Thank you as well for your input in choosing the colour, carpet and flooring for Summer Tree Club House. A much needed face lift has transformed the Club House into an inviting place for entertaining and relaxing for the owners of Summer Tree.

Debbie has conducted many a home staging for our valued clients, and to date everyone has been more than satisfied with her service and suggestions. We are very happy to be able to work with Debbie to help our homesellers sell their homes faster and for more money. Thank you Debbie for all the care and attention you give to our clients!

Debbie was an inspiration to work with. She was dedicated, service oriented and extremely pleasant. She showed her respect by always being on time and following through on what she promised to do. Her enthusiasm and boundless energy was contagious. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our renovations and have had lots of compliments on the new look. Thank you Debbie for a job well done. You definitely are part of our family now.

It was a real treat to have Debbie in our home for the day! The care to detail was impressive – from placement of books by title, size and angles on the bookshelves, to colour combinations and accents of paintings, pottery and ornaments. It was evident that her detailed interview with us prior to the actual “move” was essential. She really HEARD our responses, requests and needs. She respected our limits yet the results were beyond our expectations of small spaces holding numerous collections of art, books, dishes and other favorite things. We were very impressed with the open, flexible and creative eyes that worked to greatly improve the flow and function of the rooms in our home. Many thanks for bringing to light what we already have and can now enjoy even more!

This house had been on the market for a YEAR and NO OFFERS but there was traffic. Well, thankfully I met Debbie from BY INSPIRED DESIGN. She came in and totally transformed that house in just one day. She used her existing furnishings and rearranged the home to showcase the home’s elegance and potential. She removed the personal items and put function back into the home. The best news: THE HOUSE SOLD IN 3 DAYS after she staged it. The clients were delighted & so am I. I look forward to working with her again very soon.

I appreciated working with Debbie Tolpinrud ( By Inspired Design ) !

We have now completed 2 builds with her, and working with Debbie has been a really great experience. She is very motivated and creative assisting me with the design , color , and coordinating when it came time choose the flooring, lighting fixtures, paint color, cabinetry, and a host  of other decisions in the building process.
Her personality is fun, witty, and so very easy to work with ! Even with her very busy schedule , she doesn’t rush the appointment time with her clients.
It has been a great experience working with her , and she is definitely an asset to you and her clients
