WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

WINSTON LEE

I have used Huong and the Spotted Frog Design team on 3 separate projects. Most recently is our 100 year old character home renovation. The other two renovations consisted of a 70’s home and a early 2000’s craftman style house. For each project Huong worked with us to understand what our goal is for the renovation. She gets a sense of what style and look we were aiming to achieve. She also worked with us to understand the objective and function for each room. With style and function in mind, Huong presented different design options utilizing materials suited for our budget. Huong is our go to person for anything interior design related. We are constantly tapping into her knowledge and experience in not only design but home builds and renovations. We couldn’t be happier with the results and definitely would recommend to anyone looking for an interior designer.

TSIPPY AND MICHAEL ZACK-SIMON

My husband and I are thrilled to share our experience working with Huong Nguyen, Founder & Creative Director of The Spotted Frog Furniture Company. After years of dreaming, and walking through Huong’s beautiful boutique furniture store in the quaint Steveston Village in Richmond, BC, we finally decided to buy some new furniture pieces for our home that we had aspired to purchase for years. The problem with bringing new and beautiful furniture into an unrenovated space is that you suddenly feel like you have to renovate; and so began our journey which GREW by the day and month!!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Huong. Her goal is not only to create your dream spaces that are stunning, but also ones that fit your family’s lifestyle. She does not believe in suggesting products, styles, materials or designs that are purely for design sake; they must serve a purpose and represent your family’s unique taste. She was very quick to redirect us if she thought that what we wanted would not hold up to our expectations over time because it was not a durable or practical option for a family with three older teenagers. We valued and appreciated her candid and professional opinions.

Furthermore, Huong was always just a quick phone call, email or drive away. She was never too busy to answer a question, or to go over something again, if and when we were rethinking or overthinking a choice. She met our contractors on-sight at times, and if she wasn’t able to, she was available by phone to speak with the contractors in a crunch situation.

Huong made us feel like she really cared about our project and that she wasn’t just trying to sell us products and services for her benefit. She was personable, reliable, confident in her suggestions, and detail-oriented. Huong was a great listener who heard what we loved and wanted, and really executed a plan that paired with our dream wish-list.

The Spotted Frog offers services and products that follow the most up-to-date trends, with their own special touch. If we chose to renovate more of our current home again, we would not think twice about using Huong’s creative design talent and The Spotted Frog.

BUD AND LYNDA FRIER

This is a big thank you to the Spotted Frog and a heads up for people considering renovations to their living space as we were in downsizing from a house to a condo.  We never doubted that we have great taste, not to mention that of our grown children who have homes of their own, but in view of the scope of our reno ($150,000), we thought that it would be a good idea to get an outsider’s perspective for something fresh and bright.  Well, we hit the jackpot with The Spotted Frog and we are delighted at the final results in our new home.  Huong’s team are true professionals.  They are energetic, knowledgeable, current, patient, and adaptable.  They actually listened to us as they guided us through a wide range of options and was refreshingly mindful of timelines.  Thank you Huong!  We have no reservations in recommending The Spotted Frog to prospective clients in similar circumstances.

PAUL WONG

Huong has transformed my house into a home and made it clear that the design process is really “all about me!”  She patiently analyzed my lifestyle, my needs and my “look” to create a beautiful home that receives tons of compliments and more importantly, that I love every single day.  Although she does challenge me a bit to new ideas, she is always respectful of my overall personality and never imposes a solution or style I am not comfortable with which I really appreciated.

MAJORMAKI HOLDINGS LLC

Huong and her team are a rare breed and we have been so impressed with their work that we have used them for six of our investment projects, including several of our personal properties.  Her professionalism and entertaining personality makes the design process fun and unintimidating.  She takes the time to really understand our needs, can beautifully design unique spaces and implements everything on time.  Her creative talent is quite expansive as each of our properties have a very different style, is never duplicated and always complimented on.  For anyone that wants a company that treats you like you’re their number one priority, doesn’t want to make costly mistakes that you regret later and wants a “marriage counsellor” that creates win-win compromises then I would highly recommend The Spotted Frog.

JOHN DEAN, RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPER FOR REALLY SMART HOMES INC

We worked with Huong for a luxury group of four homes in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood.  We wanted a designer that understood the Westcoast style of keeping the charm and grace of the established neighbourhood while keeping the interiors a more contemporary so we selected The Spotted Frog to accentuate the fine features of our high end development.  The Spotted Frog fused the elements together beautifully, enhancing design and architecture with beautiful furniture and décor that was on trend and also inspiring.  Their overall expertise and professional integrity made the venture not only successful but enjoyable as well.

B TAGUIAM

This is the second time using The Spotted Frog for their design services, as well as furniture and art purchases. I was dying to refresh two rooms in my house (Flex/playroom and Family room). I had a lot of ideas in my head, but didn’t know where to begin or how to put it all together. Huong Nguyen is the owner. She had one of her designers, guide me through the process and after going through my overall vision, she created design options. It was simple and took all of the worries and stress I had away. Though being the owner, Huong was still very hands on throughout and available to answer any questions or concerns I had. She continues to follow-up. The results were above and beyond what I had expected. Both spaces are amazing and are getting so much more use than they were previously. I would highly recommend Huong and her team to anyone.

JUSTIN NGUYEN

My wife and I hired The Spotted Frog Designs to completely gut and reno our townhouse and they did an outstanding job!! From the moment we decided to do this reno we were always worried having never taken on such a large and costly project before. But Huong’s team were great with easing us into the project, breaking it down into manageable sections so the task didn’t seem so daunting for us.
They were extremely professional throughout the whole process, making sure there were clear lines of communication as the project move from one stage to the next, while at the same time ensuring that we stayed on budget.
Their knowledge and expertise were invaluable as it helped guide us through some very tough decisions. They were very attuned to our style and selected pieces and finishes that really excited us.
The end result was a place that my wife and I are very proud to call home and it could not have been possible without the tremendous work of everyone at The Spotted Frog.

AMANDA HANSEN

Having just purchased a new condo, downsizing from our family house, I approached Huong’s team with a general idea of what I was looking for and no idea where to begin. Within minutes I knew I had made the right decision. They created stunning design concepts and as a team with Huong sourced some amazing pieces of furniture and accessories. From suggesting colour palettes through to working daily with the contractor I felt fully supported and confident every step of the way. At times they had to hold my hand as they encouraged me to explore new ideas, but without a doubt I trusted them completely! The project was completed on time and on budget. The end result was beyond my wildest dreams. My family and I wake up each morning surrounded by peace tranquility and beauty. We continually receive compliments on our new home and are quick to credit the outstanding support we received from the folks at Spotted Frog!!!!

LISA WIDDESS

After renovating most of our nearly 30 year old home on our own we had yet to tackle our master bedroom, closet and bathroom. This time we wanted a professional who would think every detail through to create the serene spa like space that we had envisioned. Having bought a lot of our furniture from the Spotted Frog we couldn’t think of anyone with better taste than Huong and her team. They knew our taste, our budget and they wanted to make it an amazing space and they did. Huong listened to our needs and was able to create the perfect design layout and there is not one thing we would change.
The end product was absolutely stunning and surpassed every expectation. Our friends are envious of our luxurious retreat! Thank you Huong and the team of the Spotted Frog

NANCY LAWRENCE

Downsizing from a house to a condo can be stressful, but I had nothing to worry about once I hired the design services at The Spotted Frog. Huong’s team worked with me to create the “exact” space I wanted to achieve. They provided ideas, samples and opinions on every question I had. Most the time, they knew what I needed or wanted before I did, but ultimately it was me who made the final decision. Their knowledge, guidance and experience was amazing and I truly enjoyed every minute I worked with them. I tell everyone it was money well spent and I would recommend them to anyone deciding to downsize or just create a new space. Together we created a relaxing, bright, stunning new home that we love to live in!

GEORGE & BARBARA VISHNIAKOFF

Upon downsizing from a 2700 sq.ft. home to a new build 1200 sq.ft. condominium, we were seeking help in designing this space. We found the task somewhat overwhelming therefore a designer was important to us. The Spotted Frog helped us immensely in deriving a comprehensive plan. They were very helpful in offering various themes and visions that we should consider along with both our visions. Their flair for design gave us some interesting decisions to make. To tie it altogether was necessary, and their guidance and professionalism helped us achieve that. Budgets and deadlines were monitored so that we did not go off the beaten track. Their attention to detail was very impressive as was the time frame for all the furniture deliveries. We all want to thank Huong for her contribution and support through the entire process.

JOHN & SHARON LUTZ

Huong has the ability to know what her clients want even before they do. Her exceptional attention to detail and terrific communication skills allows her clients to be confident that the finished product will be what they asked for. We worked with her on our living room and dining room. We would have no hesitation in hiring her again for our next project. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone.

GARY & ROSEMARY NYGARD

We used The Spotted Frog’s services to decorate our condo. We were moving from a house to a condo, so space and storage were an issue. Huong’s team carefully listened to our list of needs for our space and worked with us to come up with the right look for our home. We are extremely happy with the results. The Spotted Frog are fun and friendly to work with, and very helpful.

Many times items were proposed that at first I wasn’t sure about…but when I saw them in our home, I LOVED them…so definitely trust that they know what is best for your place because they do 🙂

The furniture quality and design is lovely. Drawers and cupboards move easily, and the pieces are all custom made to fit with our space and design.

Huong always made sure we were happy and guaranteed the furniture, carpets, etc. I would highly recommend them for any design or home renovation. They saved us money (and arguments) by helping us decide what we needed and also by helping us find the perfect pieces.

DAVID & LESLIE LYNCH-EDMISON

Huong has impeccable design sense with a photographic memory for all details involved in the project. She is enthusiastic and always accessible for help with all your decorating needs no matter how small.

DAVID & LIANA BOLLO

We enjoyed working with Huong on all levels of our project – from choosing the paint for the inside and outside of our house to furnishing our front room, living/dining room, and our daughter’s bedroom. Huong was very intuitive on incorporating the style we envisioned for our home and successfully guided us through the entire process.

For example, we would of never picked the flooring for our games room without Huong’s vision – a gorgeous gray. Our furniture (shown in the attached picture) proved to be a perfect for our family and entertaining needs. We received great service and communication was excellent.

Going forward, we continue to work with Huong on various upcoming renovations, such as redesigning our kitchen island and lighting.

ARIELLA TURNER

Working with Huong was an absolute dream. This was our first renovation experience and she made it so fun and manageable. Having her attention to detail and product knowledge was invaluable to creating a home that is not only stunning but practical. We look forward to working with Spotted Frog on future design plans.

SEAN CHEW

My wife and I decided to renovate our entire home in January of 2019. We have always desired to have a French vintage/accent home. We, therefore, decided to engage an interior designer to carry out this adventure.

After we shortlisted a few interior designers in our local cities, we engaged Ms. Huong, the principal of Spotted Frog, to lead us through the adventure.

Throughout the design and construction process, we found Ms. Huong was full of ideas and visions in keeping with our theme. She provided us with an abundance of design elements and ideas throughout the various spaces of our home. She has been patient, friendly, and easy to work with. She was proactive with suggestions but yet willing to listen to our imagination. We are particularly impressed with the general layout of elements and spaces, the color scheme of each room, and the gorgeous tile patterns throughout our home. As a side note, our project manager and a number of sub-trades of our construction team were also impressed with the overall interior design of our home.

We finally moved back into this gorgeous home in December of 2019. We are very satisfied with this French vintage/accent gem that we are living in now.

We highly recommend Spotted Frog for their interior design expertise.

N TAING

Huong completely transformed the look, feel and use of our living space for our family. Since our space was on the smaller side, we did not think there were many options to reconfigure our layout. Our initial hope/expectation was to have Huong give it a bit of a modern update. Huong walked us through the process and even encouraged us to think through what the next few years was going to look like for our family with two young kids. She provided us with some creative options and gave her expert opinion on our concerns and kept us focused on our end goal. We now have a completely different layout from before and our family is enjoying our new space. Huong succeeded in incorporating all our wants in her design. Our space is now much more functional, bright, organized and its beautiful! Huong was easy to deal with throughout the entire process and she was always available to answer our questions. We are very happy with Huong’s service!

SUSAN MEMORY

We have nothing but rave reviews! From start to finish, The Spotted Frog was there for us and did a magnificent job on our Master Bathroom renovation. We highly recommend Huong’s team at The Spotted Frog for anyone looking for professional interior designers with an amazing eye for detail and creativity.

CC

When we decided to renovate our house, we had absolutely no idea where or how to start. Luckily for us, we discovered the services of The Spotted Frog. WITH THEIR HELP were able to revamp our outdated family room and powder room. More recently, The Spotted Frog helped us renovate our family bathroom and the results are stunning. We have been so happy with their ideas, attention to detail, and customer service.

DAN ESPLEN

The best decision I ever made was hiring Huong to help me build my dream home. She assessed the original proposal from the architect and revised the floor plans for better flow, selected all the finishing materials from the exterior to the interiors and even completed the look with her awesome decorating! Her high level of integrity, attention to detail, creativity, impeccable organization skills, professionalism and humor turned a potentially stressful project to a much smoother process. Everyone, including myself, loves my new home and it’s all thanks to Huong’s talent, hard work and great style! She was worth every penny spent and I would highly recommend The Spotted Frog in a heartbeat.

DENIS BIDIN AND BRENDA NG

We have dealt with Huong and the staff at The Spotted Frog for some years and when we renovated our home it was a natural choice to go to the professionals. With the Spotted Frog we get good sound advice, exceptional products and service at what we believe is affordable pricing. We have been very pleased with the advice we received and the ability Huong has to lead you away from decisions that you would be sorry you made and focus you on the right way to go. When we remodeled our living room and dining room the Spotted Frog was able to give us a design layout that worked very well for an awkward space and provide furniture choices that will serve our needs for the years ahead. Huong has also put her creative influences on a number of other spaces throughout our home

PATTI AND COREY DEAN

We have used The Spotted Frog’s interior design services to assist us with the renovations of our main residence and our cabin in Whistler.  The staff are professional, knowledgeable and well versed on current trends.  Huong and her team have patiently guided us through the selection and ordering of custom made furniture to ensure it suited our needs and style. We appreciate The Spotted Frog’s comprehensive understanding of design whether we were selecting larger pieces of furniture or accent pieces to complete a room.  The Spotted Frog’s quality furniture, accessories and extraordinary staff have made our renovations a positive experience.

NEIL WILSON

We purchased a sectional and chair from the Spotted Frog. Huong and the Spotted frog team went above and beyond to ensure the style and fabric and the look of the room met our family’s needs and aesthetics. The end result is a room that we enjoy more than any space in our house.

Richmond, BC

ROBERT & SUSAN CHOQUETTE

We already had a good relationship with The Spotted Frog before working on our three bathroom renovation project. Huong’s team helped to furnish our new home so once we enlisted their help, they already knew our style. Their enthusiasm was contagious and we knew we made the right choice in collaborating with her. Hiring a designer was the absolute best decision we made. The Spotted Frog did all the heavy lifting when it came to selecting different materials and fixtures. They were patient when I changed my mind back and forth before I ultimately reached the conclusion that she was right all along! In the end, our three bathrooms came together beautifully. I’d recommend Huong’s team to anyone who is looking to renovate their space!

The Spotted Frog did an awesome job with the design of our great room. We love it and it looks and works great in our place!

ANNE LEE

We were simply looking for a creative professional to help us out with some ideas for renovating our newly purchased “forever home”. What we got from Huong and her team at The Spotted Frog was so much more than that – a fun, sassy collaborator who challenged our imagination without losing sight of who we were (and our budget)! Many friends cautioned against getting a designer for fear that they might “take over” your vision. Our experience is that The Spotted Frog elevated our vision to a level we didn’t even know was possible! One of the best decisions we made during this renovation was to hire The Spotted Frog. We cannot wait to get Huong started on the next phase of our plans!

ELPHINSTONE

While strolling through Steveston we discovered The Spotted Frog and the shop’s owner Huong. We were very impressed with the selection of stylish furniture and accessories. We were particularly pleased that most of the furniture is made in Canada. We selected a beautiful bejeweled headboard, which Huong helped us customize. When our headboard arrived it was stunning. We knew we had struck gold in finding The Spotted Frog. Thrilled with our first purchase and the attention we received, we returned to Huong when we downsized to a new town house. Now empty nesters we wanted a complete interior style change but had no idea where to start. The Spotted Frog team was wonderful in walking us through the entire design process. After assessing our likes, dislikes, style and colour preferences and how we wanted to live in our new space, they presented us with several possible design plans, also paying extra attention in sizing the pieces so they fit the space perfectly. We were then able to pick and choose, mix and match. We now have a home that is absolutely tailor made for us. We love everything about it. It has been such an amazing experience working with these talented, enthusiastic people. We would highly recommend them for any project, large or small. Don’t hesitate…just take the leap to The Spotted Frog…you won’t regret it.

DOUG KROEGER, KITCHEN ART DESIGN

I had the pleasure of working alongside The Spotted Frog on a recent project. Their co-ordination of colours, design concepts and the accuracy of the cabinet layout was fantastic. The project turned out to be a great success.

Richmond, BC

ANDY & LISA HUANG

We hired Huong’s team for our house renovation. We redid our entire master ensuite, dining room, family room and kitchen; we also repainted our wall and got new floors done. They were excellent, always delivered what we wanted and sometimes even more (There were times when they surprised me with much better designs than what I had in mind!)
I’d definitely go back to them again in the future if I have another project and would highly recommend them to anyone!!

Richmond, BC

ROB & LOU FERNANDEZ

We decided to build a brand new house and did not have any experience. We were very lucky to find the Spotted Frog. Huong and her team were extremely helpful. They helped us with both the interior and exterior colour and material selections. We met with them several times over the course of a year and would not have the wonderful home we have today without them. Their price was very competitive and they would always find me a better price for furniture than I could find for myself online. My wife and I highly recommend the Spotted Frog for not only design services but also for furniture and art purchases.

DESIREE BARON

Last fall we hired The Spotted Frog to come up with a plan for our formal living and dining room. We had recently moved to a bigger house and didn’t have furniture. We have never hired a designer before, and boy, I was so glad we did. We had a limited budget and I was scared to go over that amount, but they guided us through the process. The Spotted Frog came over, did measurements, worked with us on what kind of style/feel we like, and came up with design package for us with 3 different layout options. Bottom line, we loved the look, feel and comfort of our furniture. Friends who come over all say how beautiful our space looks and I really credit Huong’s team for the vision to help us pull it together. They also helped me select a kitchen glass back splash that everyone loves. I would highly recommend The Spotted Frog and we are saving up to get more furniture — and for sure we’ll be hiring this team again!!
