"When My husband and I decided to settle down in London, Ontario, we purchased a beautiful heritage home to start our family. While the home was perfectly kept by its previous owners dating back to the 1890’s, the decor was outdated and the layout of the home was quite awkward. This was when we met Vanessa, who, on her first visit, took pages of handwritten notes of every detail we talked about. I wanted the house to reflect our personality, but make life easier for us at the same time. Vanessa presented us with a design that was truly unique and jaw breaking, while keeping the integrity of the original home. She left no stone unturned and thought about every single detail to pull everything together. Things that we would have never thought about, like the kitchen ceiling, Vanessa would pay attention to. I would feel comfortable sharing even my craziest ideas and Vanessa would turn them into something classy, but not over the top. Vanessa is passionate about design and clearly loves her job. We were very lucky to have worked with her."
"We love our room! It is perfect! I can't tell you how great it was working with you. For once, we love it all.Thank you so much for everything. It was truly a pleasure to meet you."

"I always get excited to see Vanessa pull a room together.She puts the perfect sprinkling of 'wow' into a space without taking away the comfort of home. When working together with Vanessa, a client is always more at ease, as she is continually working to connect details between trades and resources."
"A friend told me my new living room looked like it was straight out of a magazine!"
"I have so enjoyed working with Vanessa. I met Vanessa through Riverside Construction who was doing our renovation. She gave expert design advice and worked very collaboratively with us and with Riverside. She listened to our vision for the house. When I wasn’t always sure how to realize that vision, she knew how. At the end of our renovation, the house was more beautiful than we could have achieved on our own, but it was still a true reflection of our own style and personality. I am continuing to work with Vanessa in finishing off all the details for the furnishings of our home."

"Watching the Oscars last night in my renovated basement made me think an award should go to you, Vanessa for your excellent work completely refinishing the largest space in my condo. New flooring, new lighting, new painting, new furniture and in addition a wall of custom builtins! Your eye for detail and understanding of this client resulted in the perfect happy place! Any obstacles along the way vanished. Best of all your delightful personality and wealth of insight was always a winning combination!
The award goes to Vanessa Cosgrove!"

“Vanessa has been such a pleasure to work with! She’s so creative and extremely professional. I would highly recommend her for your design needs.”
In 2019, we were introduced to Vanessa to assist with the design of our home renovations. From the beginning Vanessa was able to understand our style and create a unique vision that fit our budget and needs. We appreciated Vanessa’s warm and personal approach to designing and we always felt that she was available to answer questions and problem solve well, which made us feel at ease.
Our home turned out better than we could have imagined! We are now looking forward to working with Vanessa again as a new project begins."
"Vanessa from Mosaic Design was excellent. She took the time to get to know us and our design style, then gave us a comprehensive plan for our basement renovation. We now have the perfect living space thanks to her guidance."
We had the pleasure of working with Vanessa on a basement renovation last year. Vanessa was instrumental in making the entire project successful. She listened to our wish list and developed a plan that reflected our needs and wants. Throughout the process she was responsive to any concerns or questions. She worked well with the various tradespeople and was able to juggle a busy schedule to keep the project moving forward so that our renovation was completed on time. We love our new space and would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone looking for design services.
Having been in our current home 20 years, we had decided to update our master bedroom. We had wanted to make a dramatic change from antique with dark colours to something with strong mid-century modern themes and light colours with a functional walk-in closet. We met with Vanessa we were immediately impressed at how quickly she was able to connect to our vision and provide an innovative and exciting design that built on our desired themes perfectly. She provided a comprehensive plan incorporating existing elements we had collected as well as introducing new accessories to create a relaxing functional space with a quiet positive energy. Now complete, we are thrilled with the stunning visual presentation, but also the greatly improved functionality of the space. Every day the space just makes us happy and proud of our home.
Vanessa at Mosaic Design helped us transform a useless room into a perfect baby room. I was floored by the transformation. I could never of even imagined the room had potential to look as good as it does, and now it’s easily the nicest room in the house. Looks like it’s from a magazine. Vanessa is so awesome, professional and super smart. Clearly made for this profession. 10/10 would recommend. Hope to have her start some other jobs soon. Thanks Vanessa!
We have been working with Vanessa for more than 5 years now and would not venture elsewhere for our design needs. She is currently working with us on our third home and her services over the years have included consultation, design inspiration, contracting, and finishing touches. Vanessa excels at knowing her clients well. She is punctual, professional and sincere with a natural eye for design.

I would highly recommend Mosaic Design for any project small or large!

I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted my baby’s nursery to look like - just one meeting with Vanessa and she understood exactly what I was looking for. Vanessa listened to me, gave sound advice and was extremely professional and thorough. The end result is an absolutely gorgeous little girls nursery with every detail so thoughtfully picked out and placed. It is more than I could have ever imagined! I can’t wait to have Vanessa help us design more spaces in our home!
Vanessa was great. She took all the anxiety away from my renovation. It was relieving to hire this company. Don't go anywhere else. Thanks Mosaic.
Thank you Mosaic for helping us redesign our home office, working from home has been a pain this year but it feels great to have a well designed and productive space to work in, you could say it "sparks joy" - Thank you!
Vanessa is an extremely talented designer. She is punctual, professional and sincere in her work with her clients. Vanessa has worked with us on many projects from initial consult to contracting services to final touches. She is most recently helping us with the very overwhelming task of selecting finishes for our new build. Vanessa strives to know her clients well to bring their vision to reality.
Vanessa is my daughter so she has done a few jobs for us over the years. She redid our kitchen and both bathrooms. She did a wonderful job. She has also picked out all our paint colours in the house. I am colour blind and it is impossible for me. The colours are perfect, she has a great eye for colour. Thanks Vanessa don't know what I'd do without you!
Thank you Vanessa for turning our great room and kitchen dining area into something beyond our expectations. We enjoyed your positive, professional and friendly manner and would definitely call on you again. We would also highly recommend you to our friends and family. Well done.
Vanessa came recommended to us from several friends and we’re so happy we reached out. She was professional and worked within our budget to create a design plan for our new house. The design plan was so helpful and we refer to it constantly for ideas and measurements. Highly recommend!!
I highly recommend Vanessa and the Mosaic team. From the very beginning, she was very responsive, asked great questions about my style and brought forward affordable options. Vanessa was so easy to get along with and I was very comfortable sharing my thoughts and ideas. I loved her creativity and she hit the nail on the head with my design vision of my new home.

client/ THE SIEMENS HOME TEAM
Vanessa is awesome! Everything we didn't know we wanted she delivered on. She has helped with 2 projects so far and we have been more than pleased with her help in making a vision board and helping through the process. She was able to take a landscape photo that we loved and used it as inspiration to make our home a place that we Can retreat to. ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!!
We recently worked with Mosaic Design for a first floor renovation. Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with - she nailed what we wanted (when we did not even know) and the result is a cohesive, much loved space.
Vanessa made the renovation process positive and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Mosaic Design for any of the services offered. Thank you!
I worked with Vanessa at Mosaic Design when I finished my basement. I was comfortable creating my own layout but definitely needed help with design elements such as options and choices for materials (wall tile, flooring, hardware, cabinetry, fixtures) and furniture, paint colour, accessories, etc. From start to finish it was a collaborative effort; sometimes she would do the research and present me with options; other times I would do the research and seek her opinion. She listened to my needs and ideas. At times, she opened my eyes to things I would not otherwise have considered, and together we created a beautiful end product that is a reflection of my taste and style. She is always very responsive, patient and supportive. I loved working with Vanessa and would hire her again without question.
Vanessa is wonderful to work with. She works creatively and collaboratively with her clients and helped me achieve my vision of the perfect home!
