My Design Style
I would describe my personal design style as a “modern Victorian”. Give me a closed floor plan with individual rooms and lots of detail! I love a dramatic chandelier, wall paneling and ornate papers, and colour. Colour and millwork everywhere with simple, comfy furniture.
My Favourite Part of What I Do
As an interior designer, I love that I get to work with different people that prefer different styled homes. A little chic here, some glam there, and rustic over here… It’s important to me that, once a project is done, the home owner’s feel that their house is THEM – not who their designer was. When your friends and family walk into your freshly renovated house, my goal is for them to say, “This is so YOU”. My favourite part of what I do, is seeing your face light up when you walk into your safe place, your cozy retreat from the world – the place you call home and it FEELS like home. You know?
My Favourite Collab Project
I’ve got several, but currently one of my favourite Collaborative Construction projects would be Angus Street in the Lakeview area. It’s a heritage home, built in 1912 in the Queen Anne Revival style/free renaissance (late Victorian era). The goal of that renovation was to make it look like we never touched the place. I wanted the new kitchen, dining room, everything; to look as if it could be original.
