Canadian Decorators' Association Design Awards

Back in April, I flew to Toronto for the day to attend the Annual General Meeting of CDECA, where I was honoured with TWO design awards. 

In the "Bathroom Renovations Over 25k" category, I won GOLD for a two-story bathroom I designed for a client just outside of Ottawa. The project was incredibly challenging, and incredibly satisfying. Photos of the project will be posted shortly in the Portfolio section (keep an eye out for the bathroom with a tub UPSTAIRS in a loft space! And to top it off, the stairs are IN the bathroom!)

In the "Commercial" category, I won a BRONZE award for a boardroom I designed for Molson in Montreal. We pulled off a coup on a very challenging budget, and created a boardroom that has now become a favourite spot for lunch-time meetings! (Photos of this project are posted in the Portfolio in the "Commercial" section)

Presentation of award

   In addition to winning two awards, I was proud to represent the National Capital Region, sharing honours with fellow CDECA members, Sonya Kinkade and Mary Anne van Gaal. Together we took home 4 awards!
