Here's what our clients are saying about us...
I have watched Jil create amazing spaces and designs for over 11 years now. So naturally when I recently purchased my condo, there was no hesitation who I wanted to work with to conceptualize my dream home. Jil’s vast knowledge of colour and textures helped me choose the perfect combination of paint, tile and flooring that not only complimented each other but also inspired furniture choices. The furniture recommendations made by Jil have been brilliant and uniquely suited to my tastes. I was thrilled to receive mood boards that allowed me to visualize the final outcome. I am extremely excited to move into what will truly be my new “home”. Jil is a true professional with expertise in all aspects of interior design and I highly recommend her services.
"I hired Jil on a crazy timeline to do a lighting plan for my 900 so ft apartment. I had been trying, for months, to find a lighting designer but either my job is too small or the New York semi-designers are...difficult.
I have been working with Jil Sonia Interiors for over a year now. She continues to blow me away with her skill and amazing customer service.
Hiring Jil McDonald of Jil Sonia Interiors was the best decision we made, she is extremely skilled at what she does. Jil gives her clients 150% effort and customer service. She promptly attends to emails and welcomes feedback. She is very easy to work with. I think her biggest strength is her attention to detail. Every piece we ordered through her was PERFECT and by this I mean richness of color, depth, dimension - EVERYTHING . She nailed it every single time! I would highly recommend Jil Sonia McDonald"

Jil possesses a winning combination of solid design skills and business sense, and I would have no hesitation in collaborating with Jil again in the future or recommending her to potential design clients."
I hired Jil to give me advice on redecorating and I found her to be not only helpful but vitally needed. I wanted to install an expensive floor and in a certain area of my house and she warned me strongly against it. I argued with her, but in the end I realized she was right. Whew! If she hadn't been so adamant, I could have spent a lot of money on something completely unnecessary and not even desirable!
I am totally admiring the colours and design in my home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my home so gorgeous!"
I have worked with Jil McDonald on a number of projects. I am impressed with her professionalism, attention to detail, organization and knowledge.
Jil's interior design expertise gave us the support we needed to feel comfortable to move through the conceptual interior design stages, on to completion. She is very knowledgeable, responds back to us quickly and is a great communicator. We were thrilled to have her work with us.
Paint colour recommendations for interior painting:
Jil is professional, easy to work with, organized, and is really nice too! Jil made recommendations that were price sensitive, I was considering a new kitchen countertop and Jil didn't feel it was necessary. She was right - the existing countertop looks great with the changes we made. Jil made significant interior design updates making our home feel fresh and like it truly belongs to us."
I contracted Jil Sonia Interiors for an interior decoration project for my wife. Jil didn't make me feel undervalued with a lower budget. Everything she helped me pick was amazing. She kept me informed and listened to my input. I went back to her to do a bigger project and her designer choices and help once again were invaluable!"
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jil Sonia McDonald as an interior design expert. I made substantial renovations recently to a 100 year old heritage home. She did a masterful job and I was extremely pleased. Not only did she handle the interior design and color coordination work but she was instrumental in locating, pricing and selection of materials. Even today, I hear accolades from visitors to the house."
Jil is a client of my who takes the time to really become familiar with the products I work with. She does this in order to provide the best solution for her customers. Many designers take a cookie cutter approach, Jil doesn't. I know the attitude she takes with me is the same attitude she brings to all her projects."
