"My interest in design has always been very clear to me, even at a very young age I knew that I was meant to fulfill my passion for design. Constantly drawing, producing picture after picture of creative ideas, sketching out room settings or picturing designs in my mind. Attending art classes to learn how to draw with different angles and perspectives, always kept my passion for design alive. I so enjoy studying blueprints...imagining myself in the rooms and spaces that they depict.
I have spent hours drawing up home designs...and finally, using one of my own home designs as my dream home. From the blueprints to the finished product, I immersed myself into the whole process of the project and created an amazing home.
Embarking in the interior decorating field of study was truly a remarkable and gratifying experience, both personally and professionally. It enhanced my design creativity exponentially, provided me with a wealth of detailed knowledge, and emphasized the value of always and only striving for the highest standards of design. Now, fully connected to this amazing industry, I cannot imagine a better way to carry out my vision and apply my creativity, while enjoying every moment of it...truly."

Maurette LaForest, owner of MAUR Design Ideas, created a wonderful shower closet bathroom for us. Using earth tone tiles and chrome accessories with a see through glass shower door and glass wall to give the feeling of open space. Installing a second lighting fixture with a separate switch over the sink and mirror that illuminates the room in a soft light was the ultimate touch that completed the room. She turned a small unappealing second bathroom into a beautiful spa like atmosphere that is a pleasure to be in. Thank you for your professional touch of ambiance and elegance Maurette!

Transforming our bedroom into a much needed retreat after having our children was a must. Maurette of Maur Design was able to give us a room that radiated comfort and a sense of escaping to our own little exotic space. With the custom designed animal print pillow shams and duvet along with the soft coloured painted walls, accessories and beautiful black crystal chandelier, the feeling of romance is back whenever we enter the room. Thanks Maurette.

Opening a new store is overwelming in itself. With the guidance and professional services from Maurette with MAUR Design Ideas, we were able to create a beautiful and inviting ambiance that depicts what a lingerie boutique should be and feel like. Thank you so much Maurette!
