Home Expressions by Hélène... Let me help you re-invent your living space to express your personality.

Home Expressions by Hélène purpose is to help people in re-inventing their living space. I want to help them turn their house/apartment into their home. A place they will be looking forward to retreat to.

I believe this can be done by re-using many of their actual furniture in combination with new pieces, for one room or the whole house.

I will provide professional advice in all areas of decorating. I will work with the client to design a fabulous new interior, create the look you have in mind.

I will have a listing of local trades’ people, who I personally worked with and/or fully recommend, and I will oversee the project from start to finish, coordinating carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters, carpet and tile installers, seamstress, whatever is required, from design to the finish project. I will propose retail stores from the area as much as possible. A good rapport with all the involved people is essential which include paying them rapidly at the completion of the project.

Whether it is just for advice and tips or to begin a long term working relationship, a consultation is the place to start. Sample boards and drawings can be created to help better visualize the finished space. By working with the clients, their dream room can be achieved even on limited budget.

Decorating has been a passion of me or as long as I can remember. I started studying Interior Decorating in College while in Winnipeg, and then circumstances took me to Alberta and back to Ontario, where my artistic skills were used in desktop publishing, where I explore colours, balance and creativity.
During all these moves, I used my creativity to reuse my belongings and create a new home in different rental military housing which comes with many rules and limitations.
I finally took the Interior Design and Decorating course with QC Design School, I have now all the tools and insights to offer you personal and professional services.
