Making your home a work of art. Interior decorating services and original artwork by Tahnee Pereira.

Tahnee Pereira, President & Creative Director of not your mother’s house believes that the physical structure of a house shelters you from nature’s elements; it is the transformation of that house into your home that feeds your soul. The interior design should provide both physical and spiritual comfort; a haven to retreat to at the end of each day, to relax, rejuvenate and refresh – it includes beautiful things, and it must be designed for easy living. not your mother’s house was created to help you make your home a work of art – surrounding you with the colours, patterns and textures you love.

Tahnee has an extensive background in the visual arts. She studied Fine Art at the Ontario College of Art prior to taking on a decade-long career in arts fundraising and promotion for non-profit arts organizations across North America. She left this career behind in 2006 to focus on her family and raise her two children. While at home, Tahnee earned her diploma in Professional Design & Decorating from QC Design School and launched her own company, not your mother’s house, with the intent of making your home a work of art. In 2011, Tahnee added another service to her interior decorating company, going back to her artistic roots; she now creates original contemporary artwork.


not your mother’s house provides full interior decorating services, which includes free initial consultation, full presentation of the design concepts, drawings, floor plans, shopping assistance and final decoration and organization of the space. We will also work with you to choose the best contractors that are necessary to complete the project to your satisfaction.
We also have a “design-to-go” service, which includes a free initial consultation, and a completed design-in-a-box for you to keep.
not your mother’s house provides one or two hour consultations in colour, overall design and art selection and installation, and we sell original contemporary artwork by Tahnee Pereira, President & Creative Director of not your mother’s house.


“not your mother's house did a wonderful job on our office renovation! Our open concept office was dark and drab, but after bringing Tahnee in, it is now a lively and desirable work environment. Tahnee picked colour that would inspire conversation, just what we need in a marketing office, and the use of painted pin boards has proved to be practical for use, but attractive too! Some art and frames were added that make me happy to sit at my desk. Thanks, not your mother's house!”

Desiree Harder, PWSi

“We were moving into a new house and didn't even know where to start when it came to colours and décor. Tahnee did an amazing job of incorporating our current pieces (and suggesting new ones) into the design. Our dining room, in particular, turned out amazing and the result was something that we could have never done on our own. Thanks, Tahnee.”
