Having grown up in a household with a very dynamic mother, however physically challenged she became (having suffered through severe Arthritis after WWII), it never stopped her brilliant mind. Nor did it stop her teaching of everything myself and my brother needed to know. For me, it was antiques and my love of Architecture and design, being the most passionate.
My family, having a substantial amount of old blue and white china, created such a huge imprint, that to this day, on most occasions I recognize most patterns by name and maker.
With this passionate beginning it is no surprise that now, after about five career choices, I am so excited about interior decorating and Historic Restoration.
I love modern interiors as well, but my passion is Georgian and Regency, Empire and the like.
In the last decade I undertook, with help of partners , two huge Historical undertakings – both in the Cabbagetown-Cork Town area in the east end of Toronto.
This cemented my need to restore and express my discriminating taste, which as we all know is subjective and forever changing.
I look back and would change a lot.
In the fall of 2011, I was asked to collaborate on a fantastic undertaking in Yorkville West at 28 Bozwell Avenue. These are the photos of the project on the opening page display. It was fantastic and a great step forward.
I am forever reading, studying and buying “Objects du Art.”
To continue this dynamic, passionate love affair I have with interiors!
I look forward to working and bringing sophisticated style glamour and adding reflections of the past to our new dynamic century.
