About Me

Just a Girl who Decided to GO FOR IT!

 

I remember when I was perhaps 14 or so, I began discovering my passion for Design.

 Finding the perfect "balance" in a room was something that just came naturally.

I discovered how Colour was so exciting!! I loved how the perfect colour would make me feel!

My passion continued throughout the years, my friends would always comment favorably on how my homes had always looked.

Soooo...... I made the decision to take my first Interior Design course.

Finally!

After a few years, I eventually became a Colour Consultant for Benjamin Moore.

Colour! Wow! It is one amazing element! I absolutely LOVE colour!

We won the prestigious Consumer Choice Award the year I joined the team. Then again the next year, and the year after that. This was one of my defining moments in my career choice. 

I had to do more.

Then I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to build my own Custom home, twice, and to actually Design them myself.

Wow!

It was an amazing experience, and It was then that I discovered another level to my Designing passion!

I wanted to be a Kitchen Designer!

My second home became one of the floor plans offered as an option within the Builders portfolio, and the kitchen was featured in Western Living magazine. 

I was always frustrated by the way the layouts of homes did not make sense.

I always felt as though they were not designed for the way that you use them.

Little things like.... outlets...… never where you need them! 

Well, I got to have everything EXACTLY how I felt made sense.

So, I decided to " Go For It!"

I Took my Kitchen Design Training and I have been Designing Kitchens, baths, laundry rooms... etc.,  ever since.

THIS is what I was meant to do!

 That is how I Design today. I look at a space for how it makes sense, and how well it functions for the families that use it.

I lived most of my life in the country, and if I could not live in the country, I tried to have my home as far out of the city as I could.

I love the feel of the relaxed atmosphere of country life. The beauty that surrounds you,

always.

This has shaped my Designing Style.

My other passions are cooking,

my husband and I have been known to have last minute Pierogi and Ravioli making sessions at midnight.....

( but that's a whole other story )

Gardening.... there is something so very therapeutic about getting down and dirty in a wooden box.... hahaha, and then reaping the rewards of fresh garden vegetables! Mmmmm!

Today I am in the most beautiful setting that I could ever have imagined that I would be.

My home is in the Stunning Okanagan Valley.

I have an incredible family which consists of FOUR young adults..... I know....right?,

a Sheltie dog, a Ragdoll Cat ( who thinks he is a dog ),

and the most loving, supportive husband, ( aka pierogi, ravioli stuffer ).

It is definitely busy when we are all together!

My family is my everything, and I find inspiration in everything that we are.
