I love my family and friends. I love travelling and I love cooking and discovering new food. I love my home but it is always a work in progress.
I love my dog.
I believe good design does not have to be expensive or overwhelming. I think Ikea has a place in our homes as much as the most expensive furniture store. I also believe that a lot of what we own can easily be repurposed and reutilized. Sometimes the fun lies in redesigning something we already have! There are so many fun and exciting options out there and it is my job to bring that world of possibility to you.
Now I am fully immersed in all things design and color. I have studied color in depth in Canada, the United States and Europe. In my spare time, I do color trend forecasting with Color Marketing Group. I am on the Board of Directors and I have developed their education program with another member of the board that was rolled out last November. Every year in May I chair a future color trends workshop in Toronto. People come from all over North America to attend.
I live outside of Toronto with two dogs and my husband and we have a large family. Although I think I am much too young, I have several grandchildren and they are fantastic.
I am in love with learning and exploring the world around me and design is the perfect vehicle for that. It is ever changing and has taken me to so many interesting places and allowed me to meet wonderful people. I am so grateful.
