When looking for a decorator to assist us with our previous and current renovations, we were looking for someone who could combine some of our older pieces of furniture with our desire to update our home. We found Maureen Coates, Principal at Modecor. 

Thanks to Maureen’s vast knowledge of design, colour and texture, and her ability to mix old with new, our 1963-built home is now styled to 2017 standards. She was able to work within our budget, implement our own design ideas, and keep us grounded during our renovation process, which was exactly what we needed. Maureen was also particularly helpful in ensuring clear communications with our contractor. We were exceptionally pleased with Maureen’s services and highly recommend MODECOR! — Kelley and Stephen Johnson, Toronto

We are thrilled with all the work Maureen has done for us over the past several years.  Whether dealing with large projects or even smaller touches like rearranging existing furniture to enhance the flow of our rooms, her design skills are unsurpassed.  She is excellent at quickly zoning in on personal taste and incorporating that into her vision for you.   Maureen's bubbly personality and endless enthusiasm make any renovations, large or small, a pleasure rather than a stressful experience. — Cindy and Bob Vervaeke, Ottawa

When I first approached Maureen it was to help me with a unique challenge. My ex-husband had just died and my teenage daughter and I wanted to reimagine our home to incorporate her father’s cherished pieces alongside my family antiques, while injecting an energy and freshness to brighten the home and reflect our optimism for our future. Maureen brought enthusiasm, positivity and creativity to every room she took on. She was able to translate our ideas into spaces that were functional and had purpose. At the same time she recognized the furniture and art that contain our memories, updating our favourite pieces in colours and textures that make us smile. Our home is now a seamless reflection of where we have been, who we are, and where we are going. Working with Maureen has been a dream. — Kathleen
