Client Testimonials

“We approached Jo at Colourplus Ashburton for her expertise in colour choices, window treatments and her overall interior/exterior design for our new home as we had a vision but did not know where to start. Jo was marvellous as she could see what we were looking to do and came up with a plan for us from the colour choice on the outside of the house to interior design from paint colours, tiles, carpet, drapes and shutters which complemented our overall look of the house. From there we purchased the shutters and drapes which were made beautifully. The installation team then came in and installed the drapes and shutters and we could not be more pleased. I would like to thank Jo and the team for all their input into our home as we couldn’t fault them in their reliability, awesome products and their ability to deliver what our vision was and it wouldn’t be the house it is today without them.”
Anna & Paul Cartney - Smiths & Sons

“We worked with Jo during the planning stages of our new home until the completion. Jo and her team are a pleasure to work with, the ground work is done before your appointment, your decisions are recorded and emailed to you. We are thrilled with the décor colours and furnishings and are especially pleased with our tile and internal shutter selections. The installation work of the team with the drapes and shutters is of high standard. The end result has surpassed all our expectations.”
Jenny & Roger West

“Colourplus have provided us with exceptional advice and service. Great pricing, great products and on-time delivery, we couldn’t ask for anything more”
