My husband and I hired Mary for a complete renovation of a large condo in an older building. Mary worked very well with the contractor and my husband, both of whom had very definite opinions. The result is spectacular. From floors to ceilings, paint colours to tile/marble selections, wall paper and new curtains and furniture, her selections were great. She even helped us hang all our pictures. I felt she was practical, sensitive to costs, while at the same time, clearly understanding our style. She suggesting re-using/recovering furniture, had great suggestions for layout and design, came up for practical solutions for layout that incorporated difficult electrical and plumbing constraints, and knew where to insist on changes, and when to leave things as they were. I had great confidence in her opinions, and her ability to clearly convey expectations to the contractor and his team.

A note to thank you for the excellent job you did on our complete kitchen renovation. We enjoyed working with you and appreciated your input on the selection of materials and finishes for the flooring, cabinets, granite counters, lighting and paint colour. It all came together beautifully. We also appreciated your commitment to complete the project in the six weeks we were away from home, and we believe that your knowledge and familiarity with the various trade contractors went a long way to achieving completion in the promised time of six weeks.
We were looking for the "Wow! factor in this renovation and you certainly achieved that. A true test of this was the number of people who have come in to have a look and their reaction was "Wow!"
Mary, it was a pleasure working with you and we have no hesitation in recommending your design and project management services to anyone who may be contemplating renovations.

What a joy it was working with Mary Stanton. She is an amazing interior designer, with a great eye for color and style. Hiring her has been a stress-free and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help in designing their space, be it a complete renovation or minor modification.
I'm thrilled with my new custom cabinetry, stunning window treatments, a new palette of soft wall colors, as well as ideas for editing and updating accessories in various rooms.
Thank you, so much, Mary.

We were very pleased with your recommendations on the layout of the bathrooms and the kitchen. Your assistance with choosing paint colours, bathroom/kitchen fixtures, lights, marble counter tops made the entire process of renovating our new house so much easier and stress free. Throughout the entire renovation, you were nothing but respectful, kind, calm, creative and professional. We appreciate the time you spent with us searching for fabrics and furniture to make sure they met our taste and accentuated our love for art deco.
Again, thank you for all your expertise and recommendations. It was a pleasure working with you in making our house look so beautiful!

We recently had the pleasure of dealing with Mary Stanton when we purchased our 3250 square foot condominium about one year ago. We were still living in our home for several months after our purchase as we had the entire condominium gutted to the bare cement. Since we lived some distance from the unit, Mary provided supervision during the entire demolition period lasting several months. Mary was invaluable during this period as she arranged everything from contractor access to booking of elevators. She maintained her presence at our unit during much of the demolition period, which removed a huge burden from us. Once the unit was gutted, Mary presided over the entire installation period She was present to provide guidance to all of the trades to ensure the work was in accordance with the Condominium codes, was done professionally and proceeded in a timely fashion. Having her available to schedule the work and be physically at the unit saved my wife and I an enormous amount of time and expense.
As the unit was becoming tenantable, Mary assisted us in developing our vision of how we wanted to furnish and decorate our new condo. She was able to get us fabulous deals on everything from furniture to artwork with her network of connections in the retail and wholesale sector. We had the benefit of a researched list of outlets to visit to pick out our furnishings that offered the best selection at incredible prices.
Since we settled in our condominium, we are enjoying the fruits of Mary’s labour. She has visited us on several occasions since our move to ensure that any issues we might have get addressed in a timely & efficient manner. Mary was so much more to us than a Designer & Project Manager. From the beginning to end, Mary demonstrated to us what a true professional is capable of.
We would recommend Mary’s company to anyone who wants a service provider that goes far beyond what is expected of them. She is an amazing person with high energy and a fantastic attitude.

Thank you so much for your assistance in downsizing my two bedroom condominium at The Palace Pier into a one bedroom at the Hazleton Place. Your ideas about which furnishings to take, how to place my furnishings, paint colours, and decorating made the move fun and relatively painless.
I would highly recommend your company to anyone contemplating downsizing.
» Lillian, Waterfront Condo
I want to thank you for all your help in renovating my condominium. I could not have done it without your assistance. The move to a condo from a house is a difficult experience and one where help and guidance are priceless. Your professional help with ideas, choices, contractors, timing, and follow up was invaluable. Every aspect of the job was detailed in regular written updates providing constant reassurance that the time lines would be met.
You made a very stressful experience, a delight.
It would be my pleasure to recommend your services to anyone contemplating renovations to their home.

Stanton Interiors recently undertook the renovation of our 3625 square foot condominium while we were still living in Montreal as our house had not sold. We often traveled to Toronto for business and visited the condo on many occasions during the renovation. Mary was able to meet our goals to modernize our home while maintaining a classic design. She was able to incorporate our preferences for colours and our own design vision while at the same time maximizing the impact her sense of colour, space, & perspective would have on the finished product. She listens well and in turn explains why certain renovations, textures, colours, and furniture placements would maximize the overall impact. She knows how to make things "pop"!
Mary Stanton has an incredible team of associates to handle all aspects of renovations. Their quotations and completion dates were met and they maintained a clean safe working environment while providing quality workmanship. Mary is a ‘hands-on’ Project Manager with an incredible knowledge about every aspect of renovations. Her associates enjoy working for Mary because she challenges them artistically while maintaining realistic expectations and making functionality a priority.
When the renovations were completed, Mary decorated our home beautifully.
Her contacts in the wholesale and retail world are astounding. These are a further testament to her ability to establish excellent working relationships.
She took the time to find the perfect pieces of furniture and décor items. We are especially thrilled with our window treatments.
We highly recommend Stanton Interiors to anyone contemplating renovating their home. Mary made the entire experience less stressful while we traveled between Montreal and Toronto. We are thrilled with the results.
» Kirsten, Downtown Condo
It's under 900 square feet of condo space but it is my little castle. Mary worked with me every step of the way with exemplary service in regards to colour and wallpaper choices, crown moulding selection and furniture purchase and placement. Mary created a gorgeous space with her fine eye for decor. As a result, the value of my unit has increased significantly. Lastly, consider using Mary's silk floral arrangements. These have added just the right touch of elegance to both my home (and office). Mary Stanton comes very highly recommended and I will continue to use her expertise.
» Debbie & Matthew, Waterfront Condo
I am happy to recommend Mary Stanton to anyone interested in redecorating or renovating their home. Mary worked with us when my husband and I recently renovated our condominium, and we are delighted with the results. Mary really listened to us, and we felt she worked to accommodate our preferences. She gave us some exceptional ideas, was patient with our moments of indecision, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with!
We were so thrilled with Mary’s help that when our daughter recently bought her first home, our house-warming gift to her was a session with Mary!
» Graham & Cathy, Ripley Ave. Condo
We are very pleased with our new window coverings you designed for us. The improvement to all three windows is amazing. From beginning to end, you were very helpful and professional in helping us to choose patterns and designs to suit, as well as meticulous in overseeing the installation by your wonderful team.
Thank you for making an anticipated chore into an enjoyable experience.

Mary was project manager for a complete renovation of our 3,300 square foot Palace Pier condominium. The project included new kitchen and appliances, two new bathrooms, raised ceilings, new marble flooring, fireplace, as well as painting and decorating throughout. The project was completed on time/on budget and we are thoroughly pleased with our spectacular "new" home.

What stood out for me was Mary's flair for design, her unbounded enthusiasm for her work, her ability to coordinate the project, and her talent for melding her creativity and professional craft with my own ideas and vision. The result was very impressive.
» Irene, Waterfront Condo
Enlisting the services of Mary Stanton was a "delightful" experience With an "astute eye" for design and colour, along with your wish list, your entire home or that special room becomes transformed into a beauty. Mary Stanton belongs in every home ... she is amazing!
» Ines & Paul, Mississauga Home
After living in our home for 54 years, we decided to renovate our bathroom not only for new fixtures but also for health reasons. We had to remove a cast iron tub to make room for a walk-in shower. Mary Stanton took over and with her expertise got her crew in and did a terrific job. She sure knows how to go about it! I would highly recommend her.
» Carol & George, Kingsway Home
Mary Stanton helped us transform a very "tired and needy" mid-century house into a "showpiece" home that is, first and foremost, inviting, comfortable, and efficient. She clearly understood our design vision and executed the work in a professional and proficient manner. We are especially thrilled with how she creatively integrated new furnishings with our existing artwork and antiques. We confidently recommend the services of Stanton Interiors for those in search of an experienced and talented Interior Design professional.
» Karen and Don, Hearthstone by the Lake Condo
This past year we were privileged to have Mary help us with our move from our home into a brand new condo. She offered us advice on what furnishings we should bring with us, and measured them , and went with us to measure the spaces available in the condo for these items. She helped us place everything and we are extremely pleased with the way our condo looks.
In addition, she assisted us in decorating the condo, including having custom built cabinets installed in our very small 3 x 6 foot " den," converting it to an office, and also customizing our two clothes closets. Then she helped us shop for various items (rugs, chandeliers, etc.) including accompanying us to several auctions where she advised us and assisted us in getting the best items at the best price. Not only that, but she shopped with us for various other furnishings she suggested we might need, and got us an electrician to help install ceiling lights. She even hung our pictures for us herself.
We simply could not have done this without Mary, and we would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an expert interior designer/decorator.
» Dianne, Waterfront Condo
I've been with Mary Stanton as a client for close to two years now. From the first moment Mary came to my condo, I knew I was in capable hands. She exuded knowledge, confidence and professionalism at the outset. She listened to what I was looking for in my decor and advised accordingly to what was best suited to my home, lifestyle and appropriateness to the environment. Mary was relentless in searching out the best piece whether it was a lighting fixture for my dining room or an antique dresser for my bedroom. She custom designed my drapery treatments, bedding, and TV/Fireplace wall unit. Her suppliers are reliable, competent, and the workmanship is of exceptional quality. I am now looking forward to planning my kitchen renovation with total confidence. It is always a pleasure dealing with someone who practices a very ethical work standard as well as providing extensive creative aspects of their profession. I would not hesitate to recommend her to honour any obligation in which she enters.
» Corina & Gord, Waterfront Condo
We felt comfortable with Mary from the moment we met her. Her easy going attitude belies the focus and attention to detail that was evident during the course of our renovation. Upon first entering our condo her ideas started flowing. She had the experience and style that we were looking for. She was there for us during the entire process, from gutting the condo to decorating the condo, and even the move which occurred during a family crisis that required us to travel abroad and had to leave the entire move in Mary's capable hands.
Mary helped select a contractor, attended all of our contractor meetings, designed the kitchen and bathrooms layouts, made suggestions as to the choice of appliances, and ironed out lighting, plumbing and electrical issues (just to name a few). Her choices of colour, cabinetry, flooring, furniture, and window coverings are beautiful and our condo flows nicely from the moment you enter our front door. She always gave us several choices at different price points to help us determine what fit into our budget.
Mary's involvement in the entire process ensured that we had the perfect living space suited to our lifestyle. We absolutely love what she created for us and we know that we would not have our dream condo without her vision and experience.
