""Wow," and "omg" were the only words from my mouth when Eugenia opened the door to our condo. I couldn't believe how beautiful the space was. It was perfect! She listened and the result was exactly what we wanted this condo to look and feel like.
Only a couple of months earlier we hired Hibou Design to fully furnish our condo. They offered a turn key service. Imagine my relief when everything was going to be taken care of. From electrical to pots and pans. I handed the keys to Eugenia and Korina with utmost trust and confidence and they went right to work.
It all started when this condo was purchased for our business. We wanted to have a space where we could hang out on hockey nights with clients before a game. Also to have our out of town business guests stay. Instead of them having to book a hotel room whenever they came to town, we wanted to be good hosts to our guests. It's more than about making business deals. We have strong connections with these people with whom we've built these relationships over several decades and we consider them as close as family. It's also our pride in our city Montreal, and how better to showcase this than a downtown condo.
So one Saturday morning I went shopping with excitement. I said I'll start with a couch, that's easy enough, how hard can it be?
Oh, it was hard, very hard. Will it be mid-century or modern, sectional, a single couch or two. Leather, velvet or linen, grey, beige, black or any of the other 100 swatches. And this was only the couch. And only one store ......
My excitement turned to misery. All I could think was, everything else that went into fully furnishing a unit. I was overwhelmed and then panic set in...
I needed help, so I turned to my i pad . I was always on Houzz looking at beautiful
interiors and inspirations. So I searched for a design team. I read different reviews from different companies and Hibou stood out for me. So I put in my name, email address,
telephone number and pressed send......
So happy I
I have made so many mistakes and wasted so much money
I will never do it alone again.
Eugenia, Korina and Melinda . It was a pleasure working with you ladies . I'm truly impressed with your work. You made me feel so at ease and you reassured me that everything was going to be ok.
I'm so impressed, that I've already asked them to look into my next project.
Looking forward to working with you very soon"
"Eugenia et Korina de chez Hibou Design & Co sont fantastiques! Leur service est professionnel et courtois. Nous avons été impressionnés par leur disponibilité, leur minutie et leur efficacité. Elles ont une excellente vision de l'espace et savent offrir une gamme d'options tant esthétiques que pratiques. Grace à elles, notre décor est tout simplement magnifique! Nous sommes très satisfaits du résultat final et nous comptons fortement retravailler avec elles pour nos futurs projets."
Working with Eugenia and her team at Hibou Design has been both a pleasure and a very good learning experience. The project was a complete furnishing and painting of a condo and the end result went above and beyond my initial expectations. I highly recommend Hibou for your design needs!
You always hear about "renovation nightmares" but when you have the right team behind you, everything is possible!
We hired Hibou Design for the renovation of a new home we had purchased in December 2016. We didn't receive the keys until April 2017 and renovations were to be happening while I was pregnant with our first child and due to pop in June! I'm sure you can imagine how such timing would have caused for some stressful moments, but surprisingly, this was an absolute dream makeover that I would do again and again!
Hibou Design presented us with several options and provided us with a "mood board" that allowed us to truly visualize the space, something most people have trouble with. Once we decided on what direction (and budget) we were going with, everything fell into place. They suggested a contractor, a cabinet maker, painter, plumbing supplier, flooring supplier - all you have to do is make the final decision on what you want! Of course, we busted the original budget (!), but that is mostly because we figured if we are going to do this renovation, we might as well do it right from the start and make it as timeless as possible, and I don't regret a single thing!
Not only would I HIGHLY recommend Hibou Design & Co for anyone looking for design consultation or a major rehaul of their space, but I would definitely be using them on future projects!
Thank you again, Hibou Design & Co, for your knowledge and passion in making our new place truly Home.
We hired Hibou Design for a color consultation and we are very happy with the results and the consultation itself! Eugenia and her assistant were absolutely fantastic! She came up with a great choice of colors, gave us a ton of design/decor advise and answered our follow up questions.
We highly recommend Hibou Design! - super professional, friendly ladies with great taste and eye! Hope to work with you again.
Many thanks for all your help!
Hibou Design with Eugenia and her professional team have work with great dedication to submit a fabulous design for our renovation works. Always available and always attentive to our needs, they delivered innovative ideas to ensure they fit
I never dreamt of such a wonderful decor in my house! Hibou design team was professional and so caring with my needs all along the project. I couldn't get a better team! They also have many contacts (a great handyman!) in order to help us along the project. They adapted to my taste and my house is beautiful!
"Hiring Hibou Design was one of the best decisions I've ever made! Moving out on my own for the first time, I knew I would need some help making my newly built condo feel like home. After meeting with Eugenia and Korina for the consultation, hiring them was a no brainer. The girls really took the time to understand my taste and create amazing mood boards based on some images and ideas I had shared. Not only did Hibou have extensive knowledge of design, they were able to put everything together for my project in a relatively short time. The convenience of having Hibou work on my condo was worth more than money can buy (their services are also very affordable)! They made this process super fun and stress free. The fact that they are so responsive and accessible was also a huge plus! My condo looks absolutely beautiful, better than I could have ever even imagined! I would recommend Hibou Design to anyone looking for design help. I will definitely, 100% use them again!!! Thank so much girls!"
"When I decided to hire a designer for my cozy loft in Old Montreal; I wanted someone I could trust;
somebody who was going to be able to guide me through the process of turning a place that needed a
little more than some TLC….into my Home. Eugenia did just that and more.
From the entire renovation process to the very last decorating details; Eugi made me feel like I could
always go to her and receive professional advice which was creative, esthetic and always functional. By
the end of the project; I knew I could rely on her decisions completely. This was my first place and I had
never renovated anything before; so having someone like Eugenia guide me through the whole process
while making me feel comfortable was fantastic.
I absolutely love my place now and everybody that visits can hardly believe the transformation. My
place is small and because it is an old building; had a lot of obstacles (crooked walls, posts, beams, etc.)
however, Eugenia found a way to design it which is very functional and represents me completely.
Eugenia is great to work with and is incredibly talented.
All the best,
We hired Hibou Design for a colour consult and design advice and they went above our expectations. We met with Eugenia at our new condo: she was kind and very receptive.
She managed to beautifully reconcile my spouse and I's different design styles and gave us good advice. After our consult, she remained very responsive to our emails and questions.
We are planning on renovating our kitchen in a year and are already excited to have Hibou Design
"We hired Eugenia to help us design and conceptualize our nursery. She was so easy to work with, professional, creative and worked so efficiently, that we decided to have her assist us in all the finishing touches in our home including: a playroom, an office space and various other decor elements that were missing from our renovated home. With our a baby's Imminent arrival we have piece of mind and the satisfaction that our home/ spaces are finally complete.
We would highly recommend Eugenia and Triandos Creations to our friends and family and we look forward to using her services on future projects."
"How to create a space that is at once too big for a cozy atmosphere and too small to create two different spaces. My husband and I were faced with this dilemma. Thank you, Eugenia, for creating this wonderful cozy, inviting space where we can entertain and have our Saturday night tête à tête. It was wonderful working with a decorator whose original ideas aimed to meet our needs, our taste in decor, and our budget. We are very pleased with the final result. We hope to have an opportunity to work with you again.
Once again, thank you."

"Eugenia and Korina were a pleasure to work with. They were knowledgeable, responsive and professional. We even had some fun! They made what could be a stressful situation, a pleasant experience. They gave me options and made this process of renovating my bathroom so easy and enjoyable. I have already recommended them to my friends and family. I would hire them again in a minute!"
"Je désire par la présente faire part de mes commentaires concernant les services que Eugénia m'a rendus à titre de Designer.
D'abord, j'ai trouvé Mme Triandos sur internet. Je n'avais aucune référence. Ce que j'ai vue sur son site m'a inspiré confiance. Je lui ai parlé au téléphone et j'ai eu confiance en elle.
J'avais besoin d'aide pour faire des choix d'armoires, comptoirs, céramiques, couleurs, luminaires, quincaillerie, planchers, etc... pour la finition de la construction de mon condo. Eugénia s'est rendue avec moi sur place et elle m'a expliqué la raison de chaque choix. Elle a aussi choisi les couleurs à mettre sur les murs et m'a suggéré le style des cadres pour la décoration. Tous les choix ont été fait en tenant compte de mes goûts et de ma personnalité qu'elle a découvert en me parlant.
Enfin, je peux dire que Eugénia est une professionnelle consciencieuse, efficace et surtout, je la recommande fortement. Il va sans dire que j'ai reçu un service bien au-delà de ce que j'espérais."
"I have recently used the color consultation service and was highly satisfied with it. Eugenia quickly understood my style, was very easily approachable, and came up with color suggestions that pleased the entire family. This was definitely a nice investment!"
"Eugi is very professional, she listens carefully to what you would like and guides your choices to help you achieve the look you desire. She helps you integrate furniture you already have into your new design. Excellent service and followup. I highly recommend using her service for any size project. She has excellent taste in color and style and its a pleasure to work with her."
"I would like to start by thanking Eugenia for all of her hard work. Buying a new condo has a lot of decision making attached to it. Without her, this process would have been time consuming and frustrating.
Her professionalism and honesty made it a pleasure to work with her. Every time we walk into our condo, the feeling and look is exactly what we wanted for our first home. Her ideas came together perfectly and her suggestions really compliment our vision. Her talent for interior design is amazing but the way she put our wants, needs and desires together at a fair cost is beyond words .
Thank you for allowing us to live in our dream home!"

“Eugenia is a young professionnal that I recommend to anyone in need for designing their work place or house... She worked on our new office design and understood our needs from the begining. She proposed extremly good and creative solution and help us create a great work place.”
"Eugenia is full of good ideas, very professional and friendly. She also listens to you and presents you with ideas on how to make your vision real!"
"I worked with Eugenia on my kitchen renovation. She was a pleasure to work with and had really great ideas. I couldn't imagine completing the project without her. Before her help with my project, I was completely lost and I wasted a lot of time because I had no clue what I was doing. She respected my budget (and saved me a lot of money) and was always available to answer my design questions. I am now very happy with my new kitchen and would hire her again in a heartbeat."
"I had a good experience with Triandos Creations. The service was friendly and professional and done
I got all of what I wanted and none of what I did not want. I would hire them again if the opportunity arises.
I highly recommend them to get things done!"
"This is our second project with Eugenia,
We first had her design our condo and had great results. We actually sold our condo in 48 hours and I'm certain that her design input was the reason for the quick sale. ;)
We are now using her expertise for our home. She is a real life saver. We had a color consultation and we went shopping for the kitchen and bathrooms finishing. Without her opinions, my wife and I would have wasted a lot of time researching and choosing our final selections.
She has made our lives very easy and she is a joy to work with."
Tim & Sophia
"Eugi helped us pick out our curtains, wallpaper and paint
"We hired Triandos Creations to help us with the interior design of our new condo in Griffintown Montreal.
Eugenia help us with our paint colors, curtains, wallpaper, light fixtures, decorative pillows and
Eugenia is a very talented interior designer at competitive prices.
We couldn't be happier with the end result. Thank you!"
"I recently bought a house with my boyfriend. Although we wanted to take care of everything ourselves, one of my friends highly recommended Eugenia Triandos for a color consultation. Intrigued by my friend’s enthusiasm, and a bit overwhelmed by my cathedral ceilings and open spaces, we decided to meet with her for a two hours color consultation at home. When I opened the door, Eugenia was already makings notes and telling us that the yellow painted door and windows (an horrible idea from the previous owner) did not match the pink undertone of the brick! She was so passionate about it, we liked her instantly! She looked around the (completely empty) house, and looked at pictures of our furniture, and she just knew exactly what we wanted! She suggested colors for every room and we were so excited because every idea was dead on. She has an incredible eye for color. She created a beautiful palette, and suggested a few things around the house that we hadn’t thought about, like painting the railing, which is going to make all the difference. All in all, we were sooo happy to have met her. Even my boyfriend, who was at first reluctant at the idea of submitting his interior to a designer's tastes, agrees now that hiring her was a very good investment. We can truly say that she made a huge difference in our renovating project! Thanks Eugenia!"
"Just wanted to say thanks once again for your great recommendations!
My brain is a little scattered these days with so much going on, but you quickly picked up on my style/vibe which was terrific! Your expertise is invaluable in this area as you implemented a simple game-plan in no more than 2 hours, and my family and I will reap the benefits for years to come in our new, comfy and warm environment that we will now call HOME .....so A BIG THANK YOU!!!!!"
"Eugenia stepped in after our first designer went MIA. It was all for the better. Eugenia met us on a Monday and had plans for us on Wednesday. We were so relieved and happy that she was getting our renovations back on track. Her designs were right on target. She was full of great ideas and understood our needs for a functional and great looking farmhouse kitchen. She responded immediately to my many questions and guided me in the right way. As a result our kitchen is perfect!
We were so happy that we asked her to help us design our mudroom/laundry room, built-in closets and the built-on for our bedroom - all turned out to be beautiful and functional.
I am so thankful to have met Eugenia and plan to hire her again when we have new projects in the future."
"Amazing designers, very original design and most of all devoted and caring about
"Eugenia did a fantastic job in the choice of my colors in my new condo. I must say she took the time to view the furniture, my personal taste and once all painted, I love the choices she made, I would refer Eugenia to my best friends."
