When I bought my condo, to say it needed a lot of work would have been an understatement. It wasn't painted, there were no blinds or curtains, it needed some minor construction, there was no furniture whatsoever - I was in way over my head, and the amount of work that needed to be done was overwhelming. As a guy in his late twenties with no experience with this kind of thing, I didn't know where I would even start. I came across Jackie's page online and decided to give her a call on a whim. She answered the phone herself, I told her what I needed and simply asked her if she could help me. We met shortly after at the condo so she could see the space and get to know me, the feel I was looking for, and my budget. Over the coming weeks, we developed our game plan: we determined our layout, we chose paints, fabrics, designed the furniture, found our materials for a custom brick accent wall - she was incredible. She was never pushy, knew what I wanted, helped me find everything, hired the contractors, the painters, the blinds guy, everyone! She was there at the condo for deliveries and coordination of the professionals while I was at work and couldn't be there. I would communicate with her, and she would communicate with them. She went as far as getting the mattresses, bed sheets, towels, bath mats - literally everything. When I needed her, she was a text, email, or phone call away. Her personal care and attention to detail were not only helpful, they were integral. She saw my vision, and she saw it through to completion. When there was a problem with the delivery, she took care of it. I couldn't be happier with the way the place turned out. Jackie is a professional with a personal touch, and I could not have done it without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone for anything, no matter how big or small the project is.
We took their advice and we were pleased with the results. My husband and I sought out Parsons Interiors of Oakville when we were getting quotes on finishing our basement. Parsons Interior's team and designers were involved right from the beginning by helping us figure out what we were trying to accomplish, our goal was to have a 21st Century man cave English pub style, but we also needed it to work with my likes as a woman and be functional for our young twins.
Parson's team came up with sketches, and floor plans while helped us with design layout, and style of furniture. Picking out all of the furnishing’s for the basement renovation was a big part of what we were looking for as well as fabric for cushions, drapes, area rugs as well as wallpaper for the bathroom. Jackie has a real talent for colour matching and I was amazed at what she was able to put together for us. With the floor plans, we were able to determine the proper size furniture for the room and order all the furniture so that it was ready by the time the basement was finished. Throughout the project, over the period of many months, Parsons Interiors have been very reliable and timely. Jackie tracked projects, kept on top of several suppliers and provided us with updates regularly.
Overall our experience was extremely pleasant and we would recommend Parsons Interiors to anyone looking for advice and help with home décor.

My family and I were making a huge transition from our 3000 sq. feet traditional home, that we had lived in for 20 years to a new custom built 6000+ sq feet home. We decided to let go of the traditional look and opted for something different. On the search for an interior decorator and designer we came across Parsons Interiors, we called and got in touch with Jackie. That same weekend Jackie had us in her office pulling samples and starting to design our new home. We had many meetings with Jackie as she took us through step by step, room by room what her plans were. It was truly an easy and stress-free process for us. Jackie was amazing! She knew instantly our likes and dislikes and gathered the most beautiful rugs, pieces of furniture and accessories too. Not only did Jackie pick out our furniture, she helped with designing our kitchen, washrooms, and both of our family rooms custom wall units. All of our walk-in closets were designed by Parsons Interiors including my dressing room. Some of our windows were very challenging but Jackie found a solution and came up with the most beautiful window coverings. Jackie was there every step of the way and spent countless hours at our home, laying down rugs, moving around furniture, making sure everything was perfect. Our experience with Jackie and Parsons Interior has been truly exceptional! We are so thankful to Jackie and her team for making our house into a home. We are so grateful to have found such a wonderful and spirited individual to design our home!

Faced with the task of downsizing into our 1800 sq. ft. condo we chose Parsons Interiors to handle the entire project, from design, colours, layout and sourcing of all pieces. Jackie Connolly exceeded our expectations meeting all our needs and operating within our budget. All deadlines were met and the coordination of all purchased furniture pieces arrived on moving day as she supervised the unpacking and placement ensuring all was as agreed to. Jackie made the whole process fun and easy!

We are so happy with our dining room furniture. I think the best part is the chairs. Everyone has commented about how comfortable they are. Thank you for your guidance in updating our home and giving us something unique.

I wanted to make our new house a home for my family. During the first meeting, Jackie took the time to talk with me to understand the style I was looking for. Jackie was able to understand the look and feel that I wanted in my house and make suggestions with my preferences in mind. Jackie was able to coordinate the painter and installers needed to complete the work. All trades people in my home were always professional and provided a high quality of work.
I have had the honor and privilege of working with Parsons Interiors for the past 5 years in making my house a home. Our first endeavor together was reupholstering my living room and front hall furniture. Jackie walked in and had the uncanny ability to know my taste right away. She never imposed her tastes on me but listened to what I had to say. She guided me through every aspect of the decoration. She fought hard to get me the right area carpets for all the rooms. When it came time to do a huge renovation on our main floor I called Jackie right away. She provided the name of a company for me and arranged all the meetings. Jackie dealt with everything for me arranging a private appt. to view appliances, all floor treatments, kitchen cabinets, the list is endless. I don't know how many times I said: "Jackie I don't know what I would do without you". Jackie made a project I had no idea where, to begin with a pleasure. Throughout the project, we laughed and enjoyed the odd glass of wine. Jackie knows me so well now that I don't even question her choices. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Jackie. The journey is not over. I would not hesitate to recommend Jackie. She has been my godsend.

I've interviewed and received quotes from a number of interior designers over the years and - I have to admit - have been less than impressed with the people that I have met; such that I've actually opted to not complete projects at all. All that changed with a gem of a designer named Jackie Connolly from Parsons Interiors! Jackie actually listened to me and heard what I was looking for, and has taken my taste into consideration every step of the way. Her ability to read people and adapt styles to her customer's needs is terrific and has yielded results that I am absolutely thrilled with. It's amazing working with a professional and that's exactly what Jackie is. Thank you Jackie! I look forward to our future projects together.

As a woman who uses a wheelchair for all of my mobility, I needed someone who could find and deliver the items necessary to completely refresh my living room and master bedroom. Jackie Connolly from Parsons Interiors did that and more. Jackie took the time to understand what I liked and why certain room configurations are not practical for a wheelchair user. Jackie was very patient while we worked together to create an environment that would make me happy. She provided photos, suggestions and many samples for me to consider. As a result, I now have a vibrant living room and a bedroom that I absolutely enjoy! Parsons Interiors added some new furniture piece that was needed and was able to keep some of existing furniture as well. I love the rich colours and expanded my decorative thinking by including a modern chandelier and accessories. A colleague at work recommended me to Parsons Interiors. I would definitely collaborate with Jackie again, the next time I want to change a part of my house.
Thank you, Jackie!

I met, Jackie Connolly from Parsons Interiors in 2012 while networking with the Mississauga Networking group. Jackie's people skills and knowledge as a certified interior decoator and home stager impressed me. The majority of home buyers search the internet, so the photos and virtual tours of my listings must be exceptional. Having the home staged ensures that when buyers are searching they will immediately put it on the list as one of the properties they would like to view. When they arrive they are greeted to a warm and inviting home. This also attracts other real estate agents when searching for listings. They would rather take their clients to a property that looks appealing rather than one that is empty and has very poor unattractive images. Jackie advises the clients in a very friendly manner. Going through the home room by room with the client, making suggestions to furniture arrangements, accent pieces required, etc. Parsons store carries beautiful Canadian made furniture and unusual artwork, accessories, and everything else that is needed to stage or decorate a home. After the staging has been completed, many clients want to hire Parsons Interiors to decorate their new home after seeing the results of what staging can do to their home. The homes that Parsons Interiors has staged for my clients, sold in record time, and for top dollar. I have recommended Jackie Connolly from Parsons Interiors to both my clients and to other agents.

I met Jackie Connolly through a referral from a friend of mine. Jackie came to my house, as I wanted to re-do my hallway, living room and dining room. After the initial consultation, I decided to give her a try. Well let me tell you she knows her stuff. Jackie was able to source many Canadian furniture suppliers which was one of my request. Jackie took me to a few manufacturers where I was able to see the quality first hand. We went through many pictures and ideas and she got a really good feel for what I like and what I don’t like. She is a genuine person, very fair and honest. She decorated my rooms the way I had asked and I was thoroughly satisfied. I will tell you I gave her a real run for her money, as I am very picky with pictures and lamps. She went through so many with me, always taking the time to satisfy me. Her motto is she wants you to be happy as you are going to live in it! I am so happy with the way these rooms turned out. In the end I had her do some updates to my family room, all with complete satisfaction. If you are looking for someone who will work hard for you, Jackie is the right lady!

Jackie from Parsons Interiors came to the rescue with a professional Decor consultation when we were at a loss as how to decorate and update our open concept main floor. With some furnishings staying and some going, some floors completed and some needing an update and our existing upgraded kitchen I was pleasantly surprised at how many ideas and suggestions Jackie had. With obvious skill and enthusiasm she made color and fabric suggestions, styling and placement plans and worked with what we had in directing us to accessories and pieces that would have maximum impact and pull it all together. I was very impressed and look forward to having her work with us, within our budget and time lines in the near future.
My name is Tammy, I'm an entrepreneur Makeup Artist, and a busy Mom. After the birth of my daughter, our whole house was taken over with baby stuff. I realized I needed help from a professional Interior Decorating firm so I gave Parson Interiors a call. Jackie Connolly gave me a floor plan that works to meet the needs of our current lifestyle. I wanted an elegant and modern home but didn't know where to start. After working with the floor plan that Jackie gave us, I now have started the exciting process of redecorating my house to meet the needs of all my family members. Thank you, Jackie for making my house comfortable and beautiful again.

Jackie has the ability to look at a room and create a flow of colours which complements your existing furnishings and lifestyle.

Jackie was really what I needed to organize my needs, find the products I need within my price range, and “ground” my selections so they would be items to last forever with more timeless choices! Jackie always provided several options as well as photographs of the choices whether on digital, paper or direction to websites, adding the visual element made the selections easier! I do not hesitate to refer Jackie's talent and bubbly personality!

We hired Jackie to reupholster two wingback chairs we've had for years but were in desperate need of an update. She helped us choose a fabric that matched our existing decor and was within our budget. Jackie did a great job of both and we absolutely love our 'new' chairs. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the workmanship, which was excellent and very meticulous.

The following is a letter of reference for Interior Decorator Jackie Connolly. I bought a home in Georgetown, Ontario in the spring of 2007. The house was completely unfurnished when I moved in from a one bedroom apartment. With the exception of a bed and a few bedroom furnishings, nothing else from my apartment could be used in my new home. In other words, the entire re-decorating effort was from scratch. In the past, I had always relied on my wife to look after the furnishing of our homes. I had absolutely no experience in interior decorating. As a result, I hired Jackie to help me do my interior decorating. I did not know where to begin, as I had no idea what I wanted. This was frustrating to both Jackie and me. She correctly recommended that we spend several Friday’s visiting various furniture stores. After several outings, she began to get a feel for what I wanted. This turned out to be a “traditional” style. The most important pieces of furniture were the chesterfield and wing back chairs. After searching many stores we could not find a piece that we liked. She recommended that we go to a furniture manufacturer in Vaughn. There, we finally found a chesterfield style that I liked. We then went through about a 100 different fabrics with a wide variety of patterns and colors. Jackie finally found a floral pattern that beautifully matched my blue carpet and burgundy walls. When we got the chesterfield six weeks later, it turned out to be a perfect match. The same was true how we chose the color and patterns for the wing back chairs. All this was done at a reasonable price, which Jackie was able to negotiate on my behalf. In total, she helped me purchase over 25 different pieces of furniture, artwork and other home furnishing items. I can say that all the pieces fit the “traditional” theme and melded together to stand out in a golden glow under the beautiful chandelier that she found. Jackie also saved me a fair bit of money by taking me to dealers that could only deal with Interior Decorators and there by getting me discounts. Jackie is sociable, fun and energetic. I highly recommend her for anyone needing an Interior Decorator.

I strongly recommend Jackie Connolly for all aspects of home decorating. She is superb … extremely knowledgeable, qualified, very enthusiastic (she loves her work), is very detailed and listens to her client! Her decorating flair nicely complements her knowledge.
Jackie did a wonderful job in sourcing and supervising the installation of windows and doors for my entire home. This was a big job requiring exact measuring and planning. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of the job. Thanks Jackie.
