We had a brilliant experience working with Finishing Touch on our extensive home renovations and complete furnishings. Given that we live in the US, we were very trepidatious about relying on a design firm to manage our project from so far away. However, both the process and the end result absolutely exceeded our expectations. Tanis and her highly skilled team are respected and very well-connected to reliable, skilled subcontractors. When a few significant, unexpected challenges arose along the way, Finishing Touch were resourceful and creative problem solvers. They productively and diligently managed our project to deliver high quality design and workmanship. They offered innovative ideas and designs that stretched our thinking, delivered on our vision, and truly surpassed what we were imagining. We had complete confidence in Finishing Touch and could not have achieved our spectacular outcome without their guidance and expertise. Every person who visits our condo is awestruck at the transformation as well as the beautiful, comfortable environment that has been established. What’s more, it was a joy to partner with Tanis and her team. They are loyal, authentic, committed professionals.
We had the pleasure of getting Finishing Touch to reimagine , renovate and decorate our place at the Somerset. Tanis is an experienced professional and she and Siobhan were delightful, responsive and fun to work with. Our place came out better than we had even imagined. Their creative ideas for integrating the space into the beautiful surroundings were terrific.
Absolutely love what they did- stunning work.

We have worked with Tanis and her team at Finishing Touch since 2018. We engaged Tanis to help us plan and oversee the renovation of our villa in chalk sound. We are thrilled with the result. Our vision for the property has been completely realized despite many challenges and obstacles that had to be overcome along the way!
As the name Finishing Touch implies, the team has an eye for creativity, detail and quality. Finishing Touch helped develop a vision for the property, produced the renovation plans, selected a GC, created the interior design and sourced all the materials and furnishings including the artwork.
Through out all these phases of work the team has been an absolute pleasure to work with and we have felt like a valued client through out. If we are ever fortunate enough to renovate another property in TCI we would work with Finishing Touch again without hesitation.
Chalk Sound, Providenciales
We recently contracted with Finishing Touch to design and oversee the refurbishing of our beach-front condo. It was unbelievable how well they understood our needs and how eager they were to do the job properly. The process of design was such that with their impeccable taste, it allowed us to easily pick the furniture and accessories we liked. Having never worked with a designer before, the technique of design they used was amazingly ingenious and made us feel like we not only had a hand in the design but also that our choices selected were in fact the correct one. They were also very careful to suit things within our desired our budget. Everything was definitely custom for our unit and our lifestyle. The compliments we receive daily from friends and relatives are never ending. We absolutely love our new home!
From the design and furniture/accessory’s supply to the contracting and supervision of the trades, we were so impressed,we are continuing to use their services on all our present other projects.
“Knowing how much work it was to furnish our home in the US, we were overwhelmed thinking of furnishing our new home in the Islands. The professionals at Finishing Touch made the process easier than it was in the States. Their knowledge of which fabrics and woods perform best in the harsh tropical environment prevented us from making costly mistakes. Their use of email and digital photos allowed us to make long distance selections with ease. And best of all, the first time we walked into our home, everything down to the silverware was in its place. No boxes to open, no packing materials to dispose of. Finishing Touch didn’t just claim to provide turnkey service, they truly delivered.”

“Tanis and her team were amazing to work with. They are all extremely warm-hearted, kind individuals, and they made the process fun and almost easy from New York! They helped transform our unit to an open concept which is bright and beautiful. They are detailed, efficient and listened to our needs. Our home is truly paradise ! ”

“It was with great trepidation that we decided to build a home on Providenciales. New construction is challenging under the best of circumstances let alone when your primary residence is thousands of miles away. As luck would have it, we met a local building contractor a few days after we purchased our lot who told us about a few interior design companies that could be a great help to us. One of them was Finishing Touch.
Deciding to use their services proved to be one of the best decisions we ever made. They made a great effort to get to know us and understand our tastes.
They gave us many options for nearly every aspect of our new home including the lighting, furniture, kitchen and bath design, paint, tile, window treatments, etc. etc.
Their attention to detail was exceptional. Every recommendation was carefully thought out and beautifully presented.
After helping us reach these numerous decisions, they worked closely with our contractor. Their plans and drawings were meticulous. They visited the site frequently to ensure the plans were implemented correctly and to the highest standards.
Through their vast experience and relationships with many providers and vendors, they were able to purchase, deliver and set up all of our furniture, window treatments (including great motorized blinds), much of our kitchen equipment and more.
The end result far exceeded our expectations. We can’t recommend Finishing Touch highly enough. Working with them was an absolutely fantastic experience.”

“We had an amazing experience with Finishing Touch from our first encounter. The staff was very gracious and a delight to work with. Our entire house needed to be refurbished from inside to the pool area. They offered us several options for everything they did which made us feel a part of it. They took care of us from ordering and shipping to delivering to our home. It was entirely arranged in our home when we came back to the island. We’ve had many compliments from our guests. We can’t say enough about Finishing Touch.”
“Over the last 6 years I have had the pleasure of working with Finishing Touch on 2 properties. The first was the redecoration of a 2 bedroom condo and the second a much more extensive project. We gutted a house and then worked with the staff to redesign the layout of the house and decorate/furnish it. Everyone was talented and cooperative in working with me. I always felt that they listened and then worked together to arrive at the best solution for the redesign of the space and choosing, ordering and delivering of furniture, etc. This project also involved working amiably with the general contractor.
I was managing the work from Canada so to have someone on the ground who was totally reliable and honest made the whole process much easier. Tanis used local people wherever possible and then had an ordering process that made the importation of housewares/furniture seamless for me. Paying of duty and delivery and installation of goods was all handled by Finishing Touch. All we had to do was show up and enjoy our new property.”

“Our condo needed a complete overhaul, suffering from years of rental fatigue. Walls needed to be painted, furnishings needed to be purchased or recovered, drapes and blinds needed to be changed out. Everything had to be both fashionable yet functional as rental guests can be hard on furnishings. We weren’t sure where to start. We were introduced to FT by a trusted friend who was in the design business herself in Canada. FT paid us a visit and developed a complete turn key plan for our review. They gave us choices, several budget options and left it to us to choose which items we felt needed the most attention. They completed the job when we were off island and didn’t deviate a penny from our budget. We are very pleased by the overall quality of the products they recommended and their followup service to ensure we are pleased with how the products are performing over time.”
“Working with Tanis and her team at Finishing Touch was a joyful collaboration. I could not have been more satisfied with the experience and the finished results. Tanis is a great listener (mind reader) and work was completed when promised and on budget.”

“My husband and I could not have been more thrilled with the beautiful outcome of our home. Working with the Finishing Touch team was nothing but a pleasure. Being out of country is not easy making plans and their team went above and beyond our expectations.
Everything from the refurbishing to the decorating was simply done with the upmost of professionalism, taste and style. We wanted a dream come true
outcome…..what we received was simply breathtaking! We would recommend Finishing Touch to everyone on the Island. In fact, we wish they had an establishment here in the States! If so, we would have them decorate our home and all our friends and family homes.
We so appreciate all Finishing Touch’s hard work, and for making our house a beautiful home in the Turks and Caicos!”

“Finishing Touch offers truly excellent decorating expertise with great attention to detail which on an island can be very challenging. It was so easy to work with them in spite of the long distance between Turks and Florida. After one meeting, they knew exactly what we wanted even before we did. Their vision for the unit matched ours and their quick response to emails resulted in quick decisions and we never had to worry about anything after that. Thanks to Tanis, our unit turned out to be not just a generic condo unit but a beautifully decorated comfortable home tailored to us. Every time we walk in, we are amazed at how perfect it is.”

“We were so delighted with the work of Finishing Touch! Tanis and Siobhan took a glimmer of an idea and created a beautiful home for us! They were creative professionals who were wonderful to work with and delivered a marvelous finished product.”
