OUR HOMES AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Everything we do is filtered through a lens of sustainability. We partner with trades and companies that have adopted sustainable practices, we recommend products and home services that will help you live each day in a more conscious way leaving less of an impact. Wherever possible we source furnishings and décor that are made of natural, responsibly sourced materials, produced with green energy and are well made. Disposable furniture is not in our vocabulary, we are all for antiques, repurposed and heirloom pieces. We want you to be proud of your home and the impact your purchases have on the world.
When I moved back to Toronto and purchased my retirement home I asked Joan to transform my “nice new house” into a “great house”. She does a wonderful job of identifying a client’s taste and style and incorporating that into the design service she provides.
Joan has a great sense of colour/style and final vision. I continue to love her design choices in every room of my house, from the custom furniture, cabinets and drapery to the carpets, fabrics and paint.

I worked with Joan on our nursery in summer of 2016 and it is easily my favourite room in our house. Joan listened carefully to the theme I had envisioned and came up with the perfect design plan incorporating a few key pieces of furniture I wanted to use in the room.
I really appreciated that she challenged a few of my ideas and brought forward new colours and items I would never have considered. Her design and décor ideas were unique and resulted in a room I absolutely love.
