Fresh Start Interiors -
Creating beautiful interiors for your home or office

I possess a passion for interior colour and style, and a natural ability for furniture placement. I have great enthusiasm for my work, and have a warm, pleasant personality. All is multiplied by a sharp talent for interior decorating.

I not only know how to logically present a project with an artistic flair, but can preconceive how the final result will look, flow and feel.

I started my journey into the interior decorating industry in Barrie, ON when I was only 11 years old. Being to young to start any educational adventures, I indulged in small personal projects and tasks with my mother in our new home. From there I continued researching all avenues, and became more daring with hands-on-projects.

I have completed non-credit and certificate courses at Georgian College in Barrie, while maintaining a 84% GPA. Some of these courses included things like Basic Drafting, and Colour Theory and Applications.

Over the past 3 years, while in the Ottawa area, I have received my diploma for Professional Colour Consultant from the QC Design School. I have also completed many certificate courses, as well as, attended certificate seminars through Banjamin Moore Paints.

I have been employed at Rooms By Design, where I have had the opportunity to use my skills and knowledge on almost a dialy basis.

My hands-on-experience leaves no doubt that I will complete projects with expertise and high standards.



I enjoy meeting with my clients in their homes, where I can get a sense of their lifestyles, their likes and dislikes and their personal enviroments. This is a requirement BEFORE I can offer any suggestions on interior colour and/or style.
