Our goal is to provide the very best in design services, solutions and products. We are lucky to work with some wonderful people and they have some lovely things to say about us! Read on for some of the notes and emails we have received recently from our clients. You can also find reviews on our Houzz, Facebook and Google.
We have recently built our dream home and were left with the daunting task of decorating and furnishing it. After being to many furniture and décor stores, I left more frustrated and unsure of the product I would be ordering, but that was not the case with Sonya. From the first time meeting to subsequent meetings after, I truly felt comfortable and at peace with my purchase decisions at “Surroundings/Windows of Fashion” . Sonya’s attention to detail for her clientele is second to none. Sonya listened to my desires and with her experience and talent was able to bring my vision to reality. She has decorated all rooms of our new home and we couldn’t be more pleased. We received compliment after compliment, affirming that we were in good hands. Her retail store and expert staff offer endless resources and provides the customer with never-ending options to choose from to tailor their needs. Windows of Fashion/Surroundings is truly one stop shopping with excellent service!
My very first love affair with Windows of Fashion began in 1993. Moved into Wpg and knew I needed help setting up my tiny apartment. Knowing nothing about fashion, styles, colour etc. I contacted your store and Sonya graciously consented to coming over and yes, “end of story”. I never looked back. From my tiny apartment to our home in cottage country, I was never let down or mislead from: floor plans, paint colours, furnishings, window treatments, and free advice. Who wouldn’t be happy? And oh yes, coffee if you wished. Sonya always gave me several choices and was never forced in making wrong decisions it was always “only if you really love it”. These things combined with honest and professionalism why would anyone want to shop elsewhere? To this day people still come into our home and say WOW. Besides loving your store and merchandise, Sonya has become a very good friend and trust her honesty and loyalty 100%. She really does spoil me!!!
I have used Windows of Fashion since 1980 and would never consider using anyone else as I treasure all the help that I have received over the years. A very Professional Company with the most helpful staff.
Thank you for making our home complete. Our lower level is so comfortable and exquisite! You are so talented!

Roman and I thank you for helping us select beautiful window blinds and bedding and excellent flooring for our condo. We love our beautiful designer furniture which we purchased from your store too. Sonya – you have decorated two homes for us now and you decorated again our condominium. You did it with love and care. You and your staff are talented, creative and very conscientious designers. Everyone is helpful and kind and very approachable. All of you work hard and go extra miles to please and satisfy your customers. Thank you for all you have done for us.
Sincerely, Your Happy Customers Roman and Maria
Many thanks to you for turning my hopes for our bedroom into reality. We are both just thrilled with the result. Ken has said it is quite spectacular and I couldn’t agree more. We are so pleased with our new bedding which is incredibly comfortable. Ken has already had his first sit and read in the new chair and had proclaimed it perfect. A special thank you to you and Byron for setting up everything so beautifully and to Byron for all the extras!
Sincerely, Mavis and Ken and Kaylee
As I sit here in my living room, I am reminded of when I took possession of the house. There is only one final room to paint! In a very short amount of time, everything has changed. The walls were peach, the wood was blonde, the blinds were an off-white almost yellow colour, and the four walls of the space were just a physical barrier. With your attention to detail, creativity, and vision, our house is now a home. I am overjoyed! I am forever in awe of how you transformed my wishes into a stunning space that I long to come home to at the end of the day. Marc and I see glimmers of our own family all around us in the placement of photos and family heirlooms. You were also able to bridge time with our antique furniture and contemporary lights. Also, thank you for the exquisite brass lamp that accents the bed in the spare room so perfectly. It was the final touch that was missing from the room. Now it is a reminder of our friendship, and of the phenomenal woman that I was privileged to work with while designing our new home which is a stepping stone in the journey of our lives. I am grateful to you for creating the perfect space for our future. Thank you for your hard work, dedication and support. Marc and I love our new home!
With gratitude, Carissa and Marc

We appreciate your help in stepping in and resolving these issues and we are all able to move forward. We look forward to making more changes to our home in the future and working with you to achieve our vision.
Warmest Regards, Sheryl and Wayne
Thank you so much for taking the time with me to help me pick out granite and backsplash for my kitchen counter project. I had started looking on my own and then quickly felt overwhelmed. I don’t know how you do it, but you just make things so easy and so perfect and all of a sudden a difficult decision is gone and I’m left with something I just love. I appreciate it so much.
The bathroom looks amazing!!! You came to my rescue when I was in need. Thank you for your support and kindness.
Thank you for helping me turn my vision into reality. You have made an impact in my daily life for each time I pass my bedroom door I smile with shear delight. Thank you for being so supportive, an inspiration and guiding light. I love your energy, skill and flair. I am still in awe of my beautiful bedroom. The only problem is that I have to mess it up by sleeping in the bed. After all these years and many projects later you still have the passion, dedication and enthusiasm for each project. It’s the reason why people, like myself, trust you and return again and again for your assistance. Sonya… you are a special decorating guru with impeccable taste!
Thank you for so graciously and generously giving your time and creative inspirations at my house yesterday. I am deeply grateful. I am looking forward to working together with you. I appreciate you!
As thanksgiving nears and we recall all than we are grateful for… each one of you comes to mind and heart. With being in Calgary so much this year, I do not feel that I have found enough moments to share my gratitude for and to each one of you. Thank you for all that you are. You give so much of yourselves. Thank you for all that you have done to help me begin to create “home” in our new condo. You have helped so deeply as I continue to bring heart and soul within the walls. I appreciate each one of you so very much!
I would like to thank you for helping me pick out new window coverings, duvet cover and pillow shams. It is a pleasure to walk into my bedroom and see the change. I absolutely love it all.
Thank you, Marg
Thank you seems inadequate to express the appreciation I feel for all of the time that you have spent with me in helping to make our house a home. You were very perceptive in figuring out the look that I was hoping to achieve both with the window coverings and furniture. We are both absolutely thrilled with all of our choices. We feel hat our home is looking very warm and inviting and we are totally enjoying our comfortable new furniture. I have always appreciated how comfortable you make me feel while we are trying on our different choices. I had great fun drinking tea and looking at samples, and making decisions I had every confidence would be good ones. My “surroundings” are giving me great pleasure – in no small part due to your input! I appreciate your work as a professional and totally enjoy and admire you as a person.
Warmest regards (and a hug), Mavis
Thanks for your service. The drapes and blinds look wonderful. Looking forward to sending you some customers and doing business with you again soon!
Thank you for taking the time again to help me “spruce up” my space – we are gradually getting there! Thanks for being such a special friend.
Thank you so much for being such a wonderful friend to me. Also for the beautiful curtains, I just love them.
With love, Anne
