Hibou Design & Co. specializes in residential interior renovations and decor. Whether you are looking for a one room remodel or a full gut renovation, we are a full service firm who's aim is to make your dreams a reality.
We are an innovative team of designers, certified as Maria Killam True Colour Experts. To say that we are creative would be a cliché – but it would also be correct. Hibou Design & Co. has been featured in Les Idees de Ma Maison, Montreal Home, Montreal Gazette, La Presse and Style Me Pretty. Our projects have ranged widely in size, scope and budget and we work in sync to bring the best in our combined backgrounds, education and experience to make your space suit your needs and lifestyle.
One of our most important goals is to make our clients’ design project as easy and stress-free as possible by foreseeing and preventing common problems that result in wasted time and money.
But what we really want to see is, when we leave a room, that the entire space has been pulled together and transformed into something beautiful -- and beautifully functional.
