A dream doesn’t become a reality through magic;
it takes sweat determination and hard work

– Colin Powell

If you have a strong commitment to your goals and dreams, if you wake up everyday with a passion to your job, everything is possible

– Chantal Petitclerc
Your commitment, drive and balance of work and family is awe inspiring. The passion you hold inside for everything you do is evident as you strive for perfection. The first to arrive and the last to close the door each day shows commitment beyond compare.

Look how far we've come

I was lucky enough to meet Kathleen over 13 years ago. Since that time she has done every room in our home including our outdoor patio! Her expertise and style has warmed each of our rooms with such beauty. Kathleen works harder than anyone else I have ever met! If I send an email at 5am she responds in minutes already at showroom working. She has met all my holiday and party deadlines over the years. Not only has Kathleen been a great business lady to work with I am proud to call her a friend! Wishing her all the success today and in the future!

Dear Kathleen and the whole Timan team,
I can’t believe it’s been 30 years! I do believe I have been there almost since the beginning. I remember my first visit to the garage at your house. I was amazed that you had turned the garage into a place of business. From our original honeycomb blinds and custom draperies for our then new house in Brunswick to the redo of all those windows in the last 10 years we have always been so happy with the products, service,and attention to detail. You were always so patient with me when trying to pick a fabric and style. I feel so very fortunate to have found you. It always felt like a friend was coming over to help me, who just happened to be awesome at what she does. So often my family and friends will comment that our home is beautiful, warm and welcoming and that is a tribute to you Kathleen!! I realize you don’t do it alone. The whole team is very professional, prompt and knowledgeable! Your growth over the years is a testament to this. Your family has so much to be proud of and I’m happy to congratulate all of you on a job well done or should I say many jobs well done!! I look forward to working with you in the future and sharing stories about our grandchildren. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my mom as well. Gerry Zickes is another very satisfied customer. She asked me to send her best wishes on this special day. She just told me the other day she recently washed one of the draperies you made for one of the bedrooms at her house. She said how beautifully they washed and how well made they are. She is so happy with the quality and the service! I believe your service is unparalleled. I remember when we had new windows installed recently, all I had to do was make a phone call and there you were to take the brown silk draperies in my family room down and then returned to rehang them after the new windows were installed. That kind of service is hard to come by these days and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!
I hope your holidays were joyous and I wish you all the best in 2016!!
Looking forward to my next project with you whatever that may be.
Very Fondly,
Mary Ann Dziedzicki
