I met Barb Ivey in 1984, after reading an article featuring her and her home in Flare magazine. For almost thirty years, I have had the great pleasure of a professional relationship with her and she has had enormous influence on our home. Barb is a very talented and gracious, thoughtful person. Her taste is eclectic, warm and sophisticated. Barb is a classic stylist. Ivey Design Concepts is an excellent choice for interior design & decoration.
We have had the pleasure of working with Barb Ivey on 8 projects in the past 35 years. There is no single “Barb Ivey Look”. Instead, she gets to know her client’s lifestyle, needs and desires and interprets them with her wonderful sense of style and design. This is done with grace and a keen sense of practicality.
ROSANNA H. AND EMORY B.
We have been clients of Barb’s for over a decade. She did an excellent job on the interior design work of our home. She was able to incorporate our ideas and wishes into a design plan that has stood the test of time. Barb was a team player and worked along side the architect and builder. We still love all the components of the décor of our home. Barb has also worked on a project at our cottage. Working with existing design features, she was able to update the décor of a main living area. We always seem to gather in that room now because it is so comfortable! Barb is able to present her ideas well, stay on budget and she has a marvelous eye for colour! We really enjoy working with Barb.
BRAD & KATHY B
I have worked with Barb on a number of occasions, first was when we were building a cottage, she was instrumental in working directly with the designers and builders on the interior, and the result was outstanding. On a couple of other situations, I had to take possession of a condominium(s) that were not furnished and asked Barb to make all the furniture purchases, without me seeing what she had selected and again the outcome was great. In the last situation, I relocated to Sydney for a few yeras, and was travelling throughout Asia so I did not have alot of time on my hands. Barb sourced all the furniture and had it delivered in time for my return which was a godsend.
Barb Ivey helped us renovate an investment property which we subsequently sold. We were very happy with the results and know we could not achieved them without Barb’s input and expertise. She was very diligent with our budget and easily achieved the “magazine” look we were after. We would not hesitate to recommend Barb for any future projects and will continue to work with her again. Thanks for a GREAT job
For nearly nine months, I worked very closely with Barb Ivey on the design and decorating of our Victorian house in Cabbagetown, Toronto. Barb’s experience, her attention to detail, her knowledge of the design industry, her rapport with the trades and especially her great sense of humour , made it a real delight working with her. Not only is Barb a true professional, she is also a very warm and caring person. She takes a real interest in the personal lives of her clients. I would highly recommend Barb
Hi Barb, Thank you, also, for all of your fine work before, during and after the move. I am very happy with everything and think I’ve now got everything I need. It’s been a pleasure working with you.
Barb was a lifesaver when we had to downsize and move into a condo. She helped with every aspect of the transition and recommended good services to hlep. She oversaw the design, renovation and decorating of our new home and worked hard to fit in the pieces we could not part with.
Barb Ivey was a truly outstanding designer who listened to our plans and whose expertise allowed her to make excellent suggestions. She delivered on time, and on budget. We have received many commments on our home renovation, and all are positive. I would strongly recommend Barb Ivey (Ivey Design Concepts) for any person considering a high quality renovation. When we renovate in the future, we will use Barb Ivey again, without any reservation!
