Let's get started!

My passion for interior decorating and design began as a pre-teen. As the first child of young parents, I grew up with humble beginnings and a family mantra to work hard so that I could have a better life. I always imagined having a beautiful home one day that I would be proud to bring people home to. Despite my passions, I began a career in Marketing certain that it would provide me with the means to design and pay for the home I had always dreamt about. Although I really enjoyed marketing, I felt something was missing. As a result, when I was on maternity leave with my first child, I went back to school to take steps toward living my passion and graduated with Honours from the Interior Decorating program at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario. Since then, I’ve worked under other companies as an Interior Decorator and Kitchen & Bathroom Preliminary Engineer. While I gained valuable experience with these companies, the amount of time I worked and travelled was taking time away from my young family. I decided I needed a better solution. I had, and still have this innate drive to have a successful career due to my upbringing. I also have a deep desire to be an awesome mom and wife. How could I have it all?...I thought. By creating an interior design service that was super convenient and efficient so that I could be home more with my family. The bonus part – I would create it so that other people like you could enjoy an interior design process that was less time-consuming - leaving you with more time for your family as well. As a parent, I have learned that TIME is a PRECIOUS commodity that should not be wasted. So, with efficiency and convenience in mind, I developed an easy way to provide interior decorating services with as little disruption to you as possible. Little did I know that this idea would blow up to be such a big part of the industry. The online interior design (eDesign) platform I created for Orangetree Interiors allows you to collaborate with me over the phone, by email and via my Virtual Design Centre so that you can stay focused on your daily tasks and personal obligations. Since you don’t have to meet me in person, you save time AND money because you don’t have to pay for my travel time and consultation visits. It was really important to me to develop my services in this way because I wanted to find a way to give MORE people access to professional interior decorating so that they could live in a home they were truly happy in and super proud of. I'm so grateful that since I started this business I've found the eDesign Tribe. It has helped me to further develop my skills and I'm certain it will help me to reach even more people so that I can help them transform the dissatisfaction they have with their home into a place they love and feel comfortable in. One of the things I like best about eDesign is that it's essentially a try before you buy service. You get to see everything put together (try) before you “buy” anything - eliminating any possibility of buyer’s remorse. As a person with a very frugal nature, this is something I can personally identify with and am really excited about providing for you. “E-design is a perfect solution for busy people, value-conscious people and people that just need a little help with visualization when it comes to their interior design projects. It is my mission to help as many people as possible love and be proud of where they live."

Testimonials


""Val is punctual, hard working, detail oriented and delivered more then I could have ever expected. When I opened the drawings I got pretty emotional. I am not a visual person and tend to continually pick up pieces that I am not that thrilled with when I get them home. Val, is an incredible communicator. Throughout the entire design process she was listening to my ideas while always steering me to the best design options for my space. 10 stars!""

~ Jodie L.

""The outcome was stunning! We had the pleasure of working with Val, Orangetree Interiors, on a complete makeover of our Family room, which now looks like something straight out of a magazine. Val took on a room that we have struggled with for years and in a very short time gave us the Family room we have dreamed of and more.""

~ Christy L.

""This is the second time I have used Val at Orangetree Interiors, and I am certain I will be using her again! Both times Val was able to take what I had in mind and turn it into reality! She is extremely talented! I highly recommend Val!""
