Owner, Patricia Poohachoff looks forward to working with you to make your home your castle.
Greetings! My name is Patricia Poohachoff and I am your classic boomerang kid that has returned to her home town.
I completed my diploma in Arts Administration at Confederation College here in Thunder Bay. After graduation, my husband and I moved to Edmonton to pursue careers. I worked for many years with the arts and social sector organizations in events management, media relations and sponsorship, while my husband completed his Construction Engineering and worked in residential building. We were in Edmonton for 15 years; however after two kids and growing tired of the big city, we returned to Thunder Bay to be closer to family and nature!
I found great success in my career although I always felt something was missing. I needed a little more creativity and colour in my work. While in Edmonton I took the Residential Interiors Program at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Extension and loved every minute of it. Today I am the proud owner of a new interior decorating business in Thunder Bay- BLING!
I have renovated three homes which include my own residence, an investment and rental property. Most recently I have completed work for Design Build on their Lakeview Condominium Project. I met with all their customers to guide them in choosing their finishes from floors, kitchen counters, colour and light and plumbing fixtures.
My areas of specialty are complete interior decorating projects, space planning, virtual staging and colour consultations. I can simply help you choose paint colours or I can redecorate your entire home including hiring trades and overall project management.
Why choose me? I may be new on the block, but I have the education and years of hands on experience with decorating and renovations. I’ve done it all from creating computer aided drawings of a space, budgeting, picking the floor and paint to participating in the demolition stage alongside my husband.
Although skills and style are essential in this field, of equal importance are communication skills. This process of making a house the home of your dreams is about YOU! I am a great listener, customer driven and a detailed project manager. I want you to be happy and comfortable with your choices and with my direction.
If you think I am the decorator for you, please contact me and I’d be happy to give you and overview of what I can do for you!

"Imagine our delight and reassurance when we met Patricia, while anticipating our next adventure in life. As we look forward to our new excitement of "condo living", Patricia was quick to respect and honour our love for "Scandi - Canadian design". She creatively and carefully put together a Home that will welcome us and enhance how we want to wake up each morning! Her UP-BEAT and thoughtful presence as she listened ever so carefully, made us feel comfortable. Her artistic expertise came shining through while making us feel like we were still in charge of our goals and wishes! Thank you Patricia! We wish you all the best! Cheers,
Marja and Raimo Pehkonen
