What Clients Say About David Crosson Design Collective
“We were extremely thrilled when David said he would work with us on a few projects here at the Calgary Petroleum Club. We have worked on many projects with many professionals before, and working with David was a delight. He was completely hands on and guided us through the process with professionalism and a complete understanding of our needs and what was important to us. We were so impressed with David’s creativity and just how seamless each project was that he managed. The finished product, on all projects, were elegant, under budget and on schedule. We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend David to anyone.”K. Price – Calgary Petroleum Club
“David’s nuanced understanding of colour and his appreciation for fine art set him apart from other designers. I was drawn to David’s portfolio through his masterful use of a Ted Godwin painting in one particular photograph. I also have a small Godwin, and he did an outstanding job of integrating our piece into the design.
David brings a substantive understanding and depth to working with art. He also listens carefully, moulding his ideas to our tastes and budget but taking it a step further with his own exceptional colour schemes. Working with David and his excellent team of craftspeople (who were kind and considerate, to boot) has been a wonderful experience.”J. Saunders
“I am extremely satisfied with the work completed at my home. The advice I was given on colour, fabric, texture, furniture, accessories and finishings was expert. The end result is fantastic and has received many compliments. David was able to manage the budget precisely and there were no surprises; rare in home renovations. He was resourceful, innovative and most important, did not impose his tastes on me. He listened and distilled my wishes into a style that is truly reflective of me. David is professional in every way and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”L. Lockwood
“I highly recommend David Crosson Design Collective for interior design and home renovation. David has worked with me on two homes and I’ve been extremely pleased; in both cases he made everything work for me regardless of what the budget was. Every step of the way, David was there—making it very easy for me to pick finishes, paints, furniture, lighting, electrical outlet placement and much, much more. What David is particularly good at is making a home beautiful without breaking the budget and I’m very happy with our latest project. I only wish I had known him when I renovated my first house and spent all that money on poor results!”D. LeClaire
“David has the ability to understand personal style and what it important to a client by carefully assessing their objects, colour preferences and space. He then takes that style and weaves in ideas that complement, highlight and support those tastes. When working with David you have a voice, even though he is there to guide your choices, make suggestions and hold your hand when you need it. Still, he never takes over; he merely makes the overwhelming become pleasant, manageable and do-able.
He works with many different artisans, craftspeople and trades with whom he has built a relationship of trust and respect. As a home and small business owner, I am proud that my renovation project supported numerous local businesses and independent tradespeople. David works with the best in Calgary, keeps current with new products and continues his education in design and innovation for a variety of spaces.
I look forward to working with him on future renovation projects.”M. Bennie, Director Autism Awareness Centre Inc.
“Our thirty-seven year old house needed significant upgrading and remodeling to help enhance our lifestyle for the next ten to twenty years. The flooring and painting were already upgraded, but it was the outdated master bath and kitchen that needed to be more functional and glamorous. David helped us achieve this goal.
We presented him with an idea to completely reconfigure the layout of the master bath and customize a “floating” back-to-back vanity centered in the room. With David’s help this lovely bright room also includes a free-standing tub, custom shower, gorgeous tile, functional clothes cupboards and heated floor. It is truly a beautiful room.
The kitchen was transformed to appear bigger and brighter by removing the false ceiling, adding plenty of light and enhancing the clean and workable space with new cupboards, pullout drawers and modern doors all complementing the new state-of-the-art appliances.
What a difference! We really appreciated David’s help and advice and his wonderful team in achieving the results we were looking for.”M. Zingle
“Working with David was a pleasure. What I appreciated the most was his ability to get to know our family and make the décor work for us. I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out. I am proud to recommend his services.”C. McConachie
“From the first phone call to the end of the project, I thoroughly enjoyed working with David. He was always on top of all aspects of the design, furniture selection and installation of the entertainment area, from bringing in fresh new ideas to making sure we were happy with the final results. David made sure I felt like a top priority in his busy schedule by immediately returning my phone calls, emails and working within our schedule and budget. We are extremely pleased and would not hesitate to recommend David to any neighbour, relative or friend!”M. Walko
“The lobby of our condominium building had a lovely, if dated, marble floor from the late 1960s. Over the years we have doctored the walls with paint trying to complement the dark green and salmon tiles but the foyer has never looked amazing. This spring we engaged David Crosson to implement a fresh new design and, using the colour in the tiles as a jumping-off point, he came up with a paint palette and furniture scheme that transformed the space into an attractive garden-style room. All it took was his keen eye to put together a simple, cost-effective design that works for our space—including the marble floors. Park Place owners are very happy with the new and inviting foyer of the building and very appreciative of his efforts.”L. Bakken, Park Place Condominium Board
“At first I didn’t know if I needed a designer for our recent bathroom reno but after a few trips to suppliers that left me feeling overwhelmed, I realized there was no way I was going to be able to put together the look I was going for without professional help. We didn’t have endless funds but we also couldn’t afford to make expensive mistakes because it’s not like you can rip up a tile floor and re-sell it on Kijiji to recoup some of the cost.
Enter David Crosson. Oh. My. Goodness. David has that perfect mix of professionalism and creativeness with a dash of humour thrown in that went a long way to talking me off the reno ledge when I wasn’t sure if the choices I had made were right. His contacts within the design community were invaluable and gave me design options I wouldn’t have known existed if I hadn’t hired him. We were nervous to renovate our bathroom given all the horror stories that exist in the reno stratosphere but I knew from the first site visit that we were in good hands with David. Our reno experience was amazing and I can’t recommend David enough. Simply put: We love everything about our new bathroom. The entire experience was exceptional and we will definitely be hiring David when it comes time to redoing our kitchen. Can’t wait!”D. Diamond
“David was easy to work with and understood our desire to stick to a budget. He has a great eye and we love all the choices he helped us make. We’ve received a lot of compliments regarding our new décor.”N. Sit & D. LeBray
“David has helped me with several home decorating projects, all with terrific outcomes. From fabric selection that really captured my personality, to ensuring my wallpaper project had the right professional in place for installation, to gorgeous and creative pillows that enliven my living room, he tackles jobs big and small. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David for his professionalism, fabulous advice, and swift service.”C. Lavender
“David’s professionalism, sound advice and depth of knowledge is second to none. We would not hesitate to consult with David on our next project and would highly recommend him to others.”Troy G. & Jeff W.
“During our kitchen and bathroom renovation, David was great to work with. He listened to what we were looking for, was sensitive to our budget and offered input into every phase of the project. He helped us find and match colours to existing pieces, design a layout, and identify and source everything. He helped us choose contractors and secured discounts from his suppliers. We were delighted and would highly recommend his services.”J. Snelson
“David is great to work with; I would recommend his work and working with him. He spends time understanding his clients’ needs, and designs desirable interiors that are also realistic for the space. The result is a complete look for the room that seems to, well, just ‘fit’. David has completed several projects for us, always providing recommendations that reflect our taste, respect our comfort zone and fit our budget— which allows us to pursue more projects!”V. Midegs
“From the outset, David was a pleasure to work with and a great resource for interior design. He was dedicated, knowledgeable and helpful. His recommendations were well thought-out and have since been very well-received. Most importantly, the project was completed on time, on budget and as expected.”V. Saini, President of Air Partners
“I recently contracted David and his team to design and build my chiropractic clinic. He took the time to go through the details on how long the build would take, what steps were involved, what some of the potential sticking points were, how we could make this project come in on time and on budget despite my really tight deadlines as well as how to make it look like a million bucks.
I must say he truly delivered a wonderful, professional looking office despite my unrealistic timeframe and brought in some wonderful tradespeople to care of our needs.
When you set out to design your own space and you’re looking for someone you could trust to help you create what you have always imagined, I would highly recommend you work with David.”Jean-Paul Bohemier D.C.
“I had a wonderful experience working with David on a home rejuvenating project. He identified our style and encouraged us to be a bit bolder in some of our choices. He has a tremendous knowledge of products available and saved us a lot of time by honing in on what he thought would be right for us. His connections in the Calgary design community made our shopping excursions productive and fun. We are very pleased with the results.”Dr. A. Clarke
“I have worked with numerous designers, architects, marketing experts, brand management consultants and construction groups in the past and I can honestly say that I have never worked with anyone as multi-talented and committed as David Crosson. I believe that his success lies in his ability to understand, plan and define the scope of a project at its outset. David is creative yet strategic and highly driven to ensure his clients are happy and well-serviced throughout the project.”K. Mehr, Director of Retail Operations, Cococo/Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut
