5 Canadian designers you need to know about

For every interior decorator/designer you might have seen or heard of on your favourite home improvement show, there are legions of highly talented, Canadian interior designers with whom you might not be familiar. However, we want to change that.

Coming off the heels of last week’s amazing Interior Design Show in Toronto, our love of gorgeous Canadian interior design has been rejuvenated to the nth degree. It is with that in mind that we want to showcase some of the incredible Canadian design pros we follow on social media.

Designs that Dreams are Made of

Tanya Collins Interior Design

Principal Designer: Tanya Collins

Location: Ottawa

What we love about this designer

Ms. Collins designs rooms that inspire the dreams of so many décor-loving homeowners. Her interiors are absolute perfection and achingly chic, from the lighting fixtures to the colours and furniture placements. Hers are the designs have that intangible “it-factor” that makes you obsess over how beautiful they are.

High Style Meets Comfort

Meghan Carter Design

Principal Designer: Meghan Carter

Location: GTA

What we love about this designer

In addition to being fantastically gorgeous, Meghan Carter’s designs look incredibly livable. Oftentimes you see a designed interior and think that while it is certainly lovely to look at, it isn’t the sort of place for binge watching your favourite show or preparing a meal with family. This is not so with Ms. Carter’s designs.

A room by Meghan Carter looks like a space that was meant to be inhabited. We love that about her designs.

In Living Colour

Simply Home Decorating

Principal Designer: Lori Steeves

Location: North Vancouver

What we love about this designer

The usage of colour in Ms. Steeves designs is positively mesmerizing. Whether as a quiet interjection or a lingering theme, the placement and selection of colour in her rooms defines the space’s personality. There is joy in these spaces. When you look at them, you can’t help but smile.

The Soft Sell

Barlow Reid Design Inc

Principal Designer: Jennifer Reid

Location: Toronto

What we love about this designer

Jennifer Reid has a masterful grasp of softness. Many of her designs are light and pretty, but always tempered by a firm backbone of sophistication.

Masterful Makeovers

Michael Lambie Interiors

Principal Designer: Michael Lambie

Location: GTA

What we love about this designer

It’s not just the cool, contemporary style Mr. Lambie pours into his interiors that we love, but just how functional they seem to be. The space is always well-planned and allowed to breathe. We also enjoy seeing the original artwork that often finds a home in his interiors.
