Hello! I wanted to take a minute to thank you again for all of your hard work on our renovation. This Christmas Eve we hosted 28 with ease. The main floor was everything we hoped and more. On a large-scale hosting is a pleasure. Day to day, our main floor has never been used so much, it is the family space we never had. I’ve never seen a kitchen function so well or be so easy to keep clean and organized. So, after one year out, we are still so grateful we chose all of you! Believe me, we brag about you to anyone who asks, and even if they don’t ask!

Sheri was so incredibly patient with us throughout the entire process. Sheri ensured that she understood exactly what we were looking for and guided us through the many decisions that needed to be made. Having her manage the renovation from design through to completion was invaluable as she managed the timeline and most of the trades. It was especially critical to have Sheri’s help when our renovation hit a snag and Sheri ensured that we still ended up with the home of our dreams without compromising. Thank you Sheri. We absolutely could not have done this without you.
Don and I are hopeless when it comes to envisioning colors, fabrics and furniture selection for our home interior. In the past we tended to order what we could see on the showroom floor. When we bought our newly renovated house we knew we desperately needed help in making our new home warm and inviting. Through our search on Houzz for a decorating professional, we selected Sheri largely based on the encouraging testimonials about her professionalism, design and decorating knowledge, colour expertise, positive client relationships and ability to work to a budget. We met Sheri and instantly knew she was a lady we could work with and also have some fun in the process! We had a long timeline for possession of our home but were going to be away for 3 months of critical timing. We needed to make some initial furniture, fabric and colour choices for custom ordering lead times. Sheri made herself available to us at all hours during our early crunch time to get to know us, our desires and personal style. She has an amazing architectural computer program in which she entered our floor plan. We were able to load it onto our lap top and take it with us – what a fabulous tool! Sheri selected furniture, fabric options and colour choices which we could see in 3D imaging so we were able to make many of our decisions from afar. Sheri listened to what we envisioned and worked along side us to assist in all our choices and made smart recommendations not only to suit our taste, but also for our budget dollars. As our project manager, Sheri suggested a number of trades and suppliers she had worked with, who all did outstanding work. When there were some glitches (as appears to happen with a renovation) Sheri was on site and resolved the issue(s) in a timely manner. Sheri is warm, easy going, friendly and seemingly unflappable. We loved working with Sheri and are thrilled with the results in our new home. We would highly recommend Sheri for any decorating, design or renovation projects. Thank you Sheri!
Sheri was the best money we spent on our reno’s. She guided us thru the process listening and working with us to get what we wanted. Always calm, collected and organized, which was so important to us. She’s aware of costs, giving you choices allowing us to be more in control. A pleasure to work with her. Positive, proactive, professional and a sense of humour. Thanks Sheri love what we’ve done.
We hired a trade’s person to coordinate our bathroom renovation, but soon discovered that we needed the help of a designer as nothing we could buy from the box stores would fit. The bathroom was a mass of angled walls that became difficult to work with. Sheri called it the wonky bathroom. We hired Sheri to prepare a design for us and to pick out the fixtures. She did a marvellous job at designing a functional bathroom that accommodated the complex layout and choose the colours and fixtures that complemented it. Throughout this project she kept us informed of any cost variances for the supplies she acquired. Like any renovation problems did arise, however Sheri was always on top of these to get them rectified and ensure the trades’ people delivered. She is very professional and committed to her clients. We would use Sheri again and highly recommend her for any type of renovation project.

Sheri was everything we were looking for! Not only did she design our kitchen, she was the Project manager. She listened to exactly what we wanted, and she made solid recommendations. The results speak for themselves. Our kitchen is Gorgeous!
We found Sheri to be very easy to talk to. Very professional and respectful of our time as we lead a busy life. My husband talks about value in everything we do, and the Value we received from Sheri, for the work that she did was outstanding. We honestly don’t think she charged enough for her services. We are already talking about our next “Project” and we definitely use her again! Thank you Sheri.

We have worked on a number of projects with Sheri Bruneau of Get It Together as a supplier of cabinetry on her projects. We work with a number of designers, and we certainly love working with Sheri. She has a great eye for design and is wonderful to work with collaboratively to create the best possible cabinet solution for the client. She is friendly and personable and always puts her clients first. We would not hesitate to recommend her.

We recently completed a full home renovation project and had the pleasure of working with Sheri Bruneau of Get It Together. Sheri helped us with the design aspect (colour, style, layout) of the project and we found ourselves saying more than once “I don’t know what we’d do without Sheri!”. She is amazing to work with…she is organized, accessible and deadline driven. She took the stress off of us on numerous occasions. Even in our times of indecisiveness, she gave us the confidence to stay the course and we’re super happy we did. We would recommend Sheri to anyone without hesitation. “Bag it!”

We contacted Sheri to assist us in choosing paint colours and updating an older house that we fell in love with for it’s ‘bones’. The house has some unique challenges and Sheri has been amazing at addressing our concerns.
The communication was clear, concise and prompt. I felt that I got an amazing ‘bang for my buck’ and will continue to use Sheri in the future. We have had tremendous positive feedback from all who have seen our house before and after!
As a (fussy!) Calgary-based General Contractor with 30 years of building experience, we are currently working on 2 projects (more on the way) with Sheri of Calgary’s ‘Get it Together. Sheri is knowledgeable in ALL aspects of design (balance, proportion, color, textures, lighting and materials). She is communicative, kind, positive and honest. She’s very collaborative and works WITH you as a TEAM. We discuss, she listens (as do I)… for together we both want the BEST result possible for my own property/projects and for those of our clients. I can (and have) recommend(ed) her to our clients with full confidence.

My husband Jim and I hired Sheri at Get It Together Inc. to help us when we purchased our new home. We were moving from our much loved acreage home into the city. Once we purchased our new house we called upon Sheri to help us make decisions about how to renovate and decorate to make the house our own, and to get as much value as possible for our renovation dollars.
Sheri met us at the new house, listened carefully not only to what we said, but also to what she could hear in what we did not say. She gave us several options, told us what her suggestions would be and left the decisions to us. When it was time for paint and flooring, Sheri patiently spent time with us as we selected a palate of colours that have made the house look simply stunning. We have had so many compliments on our newly professionally painted cabinets, by people who simply cannot believe that we did not have them replaced. It was Sheri’s recommendation to have them painted.
At all times during our moving and renovation project, Sheri promptly answered our calls and our questions. She checked in daily on the progress at the new house, and she treated us with the utmost kindness and respect.
Sheri delivered so much more than simply a service. She really put her heart into our project, and into our thoughts and feelings. Our adult son was visiting during the reno and his comment was that he and his girlfriend need to fly Sheri to Ontario when they are ready to renovate! High praise indeed!

We hired Sheri to help us with our master bath and main bath design. We wanted to pick colours that would work with our existing cabinets and create storage solutions for both bathrooms. Sheri worked with us throughout the design process and was always there to answer questions and give us advice during the renovation. We would definitely use her services in future renovations.

I would highly recommend Sheri to anyone who is in the midst of a ‘home change’ – big or small, move or stay, paint or knock out walls! We are so grateful to her for the excellent care she gave to us! I honestly wish I could put into words how perfect the colour we picked for my front entry is! After months of trying several colors, my husband really appreciates me not wanting to change it again! Thank you so much!!! You have a very special talent!!
Sheri, has helped manage several pieces of work for me. Each time I work with her I am more impressed with how invaluable she is. The most recent project that Sheri has worked with me on is a basement development. She helped with everything from design to sourcing to project completion. Sheri is extremely talented and high energy. Nothing is too much trouble and I always know she has my best interest at heart. She works closely with great contractors, manages work within your project and treats the work as though it is her own home she is developing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sheri for any home development or renovation project you you are thinking of starting.
Loved Sheri! She was recommended by a friend and we have not been disappointed. She works so hard and really goes the extra mile. Sheri is helping us redecorate our main floor and the range of products she can find at a good price is really amazing. Sheri is a joy to work with and has amazing design ideas that really fit with our taste. Thank you Sheri!

Sheri was an integral member of a team that worked with me to prepare my home for sale. I set an ambitious target listing date and I could not have achieved that target without Sheri’s assistance. I found her to be very responsive with many wonderful ideas for refreshing and updating my home at a reasonable price. She also made the experience much less onerous for me by sourcing and delivering most of the items that were part of the updated look.
Sheri was a lot of fun to work with and always respectful of my budget. I was amazed at the transformation of my home that took place within weeks. I fell in love with my home all over again. Thanks to Sheri’s help, prospective buyers also fell in love with my home and I had a firm offer within days of listing.
Sheri’s assistance has continued as my moving date approaches. Her relationships and experience with movers have given me the confidence that my move to a different province will go smoothly and cost-effectively.”
Sheri was amazing to work with. She was an integral component to the success of our basement renovation. Sheri helped with space planning, material selection, paint colour and much more. We had difficulty finding a desk that would fit our vision for the office space so Sheri took matters into her own hands and constructed a beautiful work space ( with the help of our contractor). Who does that! Sheri and the contractor worked very closely throughout the project to stay on time and on budget. She added special touches like name plates for the baskets in our laundry room to really personalize our space. If your looking for a designer who will treat your renovation like her own then hire Get it Together!
Sheri is an absolute genius. Her eye for detail and her fun personality make her a joy to work with. She chose the perfect colours and design for us. I will recommend her to everyone I see!
Sheri was very efficient. She has a good knowledge of the products and pricing. She has a good knowledge of space management and decorating combinations. She did an excellent job.
I hire ” Get it together ” to assist my Clients in preparing their home for sale. Sheri continues to show knowledge, humour and communication skills that I and my Clients appreciate and we all walk away with the feeling on a terrific service and the tools to knowledge to complete the task at hand. Sheri is one of my first call and I will continue to use her services in the future .

When we decided to update our home we wanted to make sure we had the paint colours just right. We consulted with Sheri and then followed all of her colour suggestions. Her eye for colour is amazing, the paint colours chosen look absolutely gorgeous in our home. You were a pleasure to work with thank you so much.”

I just read your newsletter and so loved it because I have been doing much of that, but still have a long ways to go so always need regular reminders along the way. I really do think that all your “armchair counselling” has helped me…..particularly in terms of getting rid of things that were given to me, or have a history of who they came from etc. I think about all of this when I do go through my cleaning and purging which has been a regular happening this fall. From the “era” I was raised in, where my parents had to save every scrap of paper, clothes item etc. to ‘recycle’ in some way for survival, it has been a journey for me to face the necessary changes of our present times of “the throw away society” because we can easily replace things. Same goes for things of nostalgic value………where one may have received only a few very special cards, gifts, letters etc., we now have so many so choices are necessary so that our houses aren’t filled with such items. But it needs to begin ‘in the head’ and Sheri’s very continuous, helpful suggestions, have always helped me adjust my head!
Sheri was introduced to me as a referral from my realtor. With only a few days notice I hired Sheri to stage my house in preparation for a sale. After first presenting a staging strategy for approval Sheri used her time and budget efficiently to stage my home in a very appealing fashion. A variety of items were repositioned for maximal effect, many items eliminated to avoid a cluttered or overly personal atmosphere and several new items introduced to enhance the ambience, all on a very cost effective basis. I would definitely recommend Sheri to present your home in the best light possible.
Sheri was the ultimate professional, with a warm and affable personality. She focussed on the key elements required to upgrade our home. She also provided us with an extensive list of potential changes we could make, should our finances and time allow. Also recommended were companies who could do the renovations/repairs and their contact details. Altogether it was a pleasant experience having Sheri in our home.
With my family of 6, I was living a laundry nightmare, I was looking at baskets of clean clothes all the time. I had Sheri come and take a look at my situation and just like that she had a solution for me and my family that is working wonderfully. I wish I had my new system in place years ago!
Terrific, functional ideas, and affordable. Sheri has a great eye for colour, she worked with me to create a plan that will work well in my place, and fit in with my taste for cool colour tones, and she came up with some ideas to save me some cash. I am looking forward to implementing the plan we came up with. Wish I had called Sheri before I started my Reno’s last year. A true pro, and Sheri is easy to work with.
