Vines Designs is a new Interior Design Business located in the rural community of North Wellington ( Palmerston ) Ontario.
My name is Judith and I have been happily married for 25 years, and we have lived in our home for 26 years. My addiction for design began when I started re-decorating, re-organizing, and changing the interior and exterior of our home. My passion for colour, textiles, furniture, and beautiful home decor makes any design job an exciting venture for me. I welcome the opportunity, and look forward to assisting you with your interior or exterior design projects!
Although we are a new Design company, this doesn't mean we are lacking in years of experience in the Interior Design field. I owned and operated my own Home Decor and Candle Shoppe from 2005 until 2015. We assisted our customers over the years with many design projects including: colour consulting, staging and interior redesigning. I created my own Candle and Soap line, assisted in wedding/event decorating, and have been an active Director on the Board for the local Chamber of Commerce for 8 years (3 years as acting President). My Design Studio is conveniently attached to my home. This allows me to be extremely accommodating, and available to clients. Rates are very competitive with market values, and I stay educated with the many changes which occur within the design world.
I am currently enrolled in the QC Career School Interior Design Program.
As a retail store owner I was honoured with the following awards: Entrepreneur of the year 2005, Individual of Character 2009, Readers Choice 2010,2012,2013,2014 and Local Focus Business 2012.
I offer the following to serve you: Colour consultation, Interior and Exterior Home Staging, Interior Design and Redesign. I welcome the opportunity in assisting you with your "Outdoor Living Space" as well, which has become almost as important as an indoor living space.
I have access to many experienced and highly recommended Contractors, Painters, Electricians, Plumbers and Landscapers. My knowledge of our area allows us to price shop as well as recommend reputable retailers for all of your design accessories and materials.
Your job will be the utmost importance to me, so in turn I will follow a procedure of steps to insure your experience will be a comfortable, and enjoyable one.
1. Verbally meet and greet, decide when a consultation date is suitable and convenient.
2. Visit your home for a consultation which will determine what your needs and expectations are.
3. In a timely and professional manner provide you with floor plans, presentation boards including colours and textiles and any further suggestions such as contractors and skilled trades people required for your job.
As the co-planner of Harriston's Annual Christmas House Tour we were honoured to have the home of Judith and Brian Vines featured. Judith's talent in portraying different decorating genres was very evident. Their garage as you entered was every man's dream. Her Kitchen and main floor living area was tastefully done in a traditional Christmas tone. Lots of metallic's tastefully used not leaving a square inch unattended but not in the least bit cluttered looking. Her studio was a stunning display of contemporary design. Her use of textures, pond and swans under her stunning white tree was very unique in itself. She showcased many of her functional pieces she could use in the staging end of her business. The overall impression was one of pure awe as you stepped down the stairs into this area. Judith engaged this project for our club with such positive enthusiasm and flare. She was such a gracious host and we had many new guests this year from a different geographical area due to her popularity and followers from her ownership of her well loved store in Listowel. I would totally hire Judith as a personal consultant/interior designer as she is well versed in the contemporary to traditional styling of today. Seeing her home I'm sure she can work in any budget given to her as her imagination to accessorize is fantastic. She will truly do well in this field with her talent and personality to personify it.

Having admired Judith's decorating and design abilities within her retail business, I approached her for colour ideas for painting the open concept main floor of our home. On a walk-through of our home, she noticed quickly the colour scheme and decor in the rest of the house, and capably suggested two complementing colours to use in the main living area. As well, she suggested the name of a competent painter, and we are more than pleased with the results! The new colours literally make the furniture pop! I find Judith to be friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. Give her a try.

Judith Vines was approached to be the guest speaker for our retired teachers' group, and was given the challenging topic "Christmas Decorating on a Dime", along with a time line of 45 minutes. She capably fulfilled her assignment on both counts. Not only did she create before our eyes, three projects suited to any age group and home, but also shared ideas for economical shopping for the required materials. Our group went home enthused and educated. Judith's pleasant, professional manner accented her delightful creativity.
