We’re a tight group of dog-loving designers, who design intimate, customized spaces. Known for richly layered colour schemes, and one-of-a-kind approach to skillfully represent our clients’ taste with a sense of comfort and elegance. We’ve never met a colour or texture we didn’t love to explore, or a challenge we’re not eager to meet. We’re thrilled to come to work every day to create for our clients.
But, it’s not really about us. This is your story we are creating. We’re here to take the journey with you, to uncover what sets you apart and discover your style for living.See our Process
You’d be hard pressed to find a designer where their early talents didn’t show up in childhood. In my case it was a plywood dollhouse in my family’s basement, lovingly built by my Dad, to my exacting specifications. It was artfully decorated with cuttings from the Sears catalogue, Styrofoam packing forms and hand-me-down doll furniture. It gave me so much joy.
Fast forward to today and after almost twenty years in design each project I work on, every client I work with, brings me back to that feeling. The child-like delight of creating homes for families to thrive in, to make memories in, to retreat from chaos ion, will never grow old for me.
Really, I get how charmingly chaotic family life can be. I know that storage, easy to clean and function are the biggest things that need to be addressed but you don’t want to lose the ‘magazine-ready’ look in the process.
After developing our formula for creating functional and exquisite family spaces, I love focusing on doing what I do best (and love): elegant and easy living homes.
I’ve managed to somehow turn my penchant for organization, obsession with living in beauty, and the need to have things ‘just so’ into a career I love.CONNECT WITH ME
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Alexa thrives in structure and planning, and brings an artistic flair to her inherent organizational skills. Alexa is always prepared with a novel resolution, sometimes before we even realize there is a hitch. She is our cheerful greeting in the morning, and kind support throughout the day, and at the ready with another delightful tale of Kiwi, the wee orange tabby she shares her home with.
