Creating beautiful rooms for you with exceptional furnishings ... is my passion. I was educated in Toronto at the International Academy. My goal is to help you turn your house into a home that’s all about you, your family and friends. We will talk about what you love, where you have been, and what you have collected. Let me help you create your personal space to escape our busy world; whether it be beautiful and sumptuous, or dynamic and contemporary. With expertise and skill, I will carefully assist in selecting your furnishings and exacting details to transform your dreams into reality.
As a designer who draws inspiration from around the world, I love to travel and check out historical buildings where I collect new ideas for future projects. Although my personal style leans towards warm contemporary, I have a passion and appreciation for all types of design and I enjoy designing all areas of my clients’ homes especially unusual and unique spaces. "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched-they must be felt with the heart," Helen Keller.
I got my bachelor's degree in design and fine arts in eastern Europe. I worked as a furniture and interior designer until decided to move to Canada ten years ago. I'm extremely grateful for all the amazing people I've met there over the years. I get inspired by my clients and their homes and I’m happy to say that I love what I do. I enjoy being able to connect with my customers through beautiful, quality made furniture that will be a part of their lives for the next several years. Finding balance and harmony in design is my goal. Working with colour, texture and all the furniture options I have at hand here at Cottswood, we can together create a home that is perfectly you.
