About eDesign & Orangetree Interiors
Orangetree Interiors is an online interior decorating (e-design) service that focuses on helping busy people across Canada (and abroad) create inspired interior spaces in an easy, convenient and efficient way. Between work, taking care of family, appointments, activities and social obligations, it's hard to get much else done. Nevermind finding the time to interview and meet up with a selection of interior designers or decorators to help refresh or create a new space. Our unique approach to interior decorating allows you to communicate with us easily and conveniently so that you can stay focused on what’s truly important.
Using our online e-design platform, we gather information from you that will help us to design a space that embodies you, your personal tastes and lifestyle. We are dedicated to customer happiness and pride ourselves on our ability to listen to clients to provide designs that meet their functional needs while reflecting their personality and style preferences.
Our online interior decorating process is meant to be enjoyable and as effortless as possible for clients. From the comfort of your own home, office or wherever else you have access to a smartphone, we’ll work with you to create your perfect space. No house cleaning needed. No worry of embarrassment. No need to even get out of your jammies if you don’t want to. Our professional, certified interior decorators will take all of your information online and over the phone to get the details of your project so that you can take whatever time you have leftover in a day to spend with the people you love, doing the things you enjoy, rather than being burdened with yet another obligation.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER (Val Malnar)
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.
You see, I had this innate drive to have a successful career due to my upbringing. However, as a mature adult, I also had this 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 could enjoy an interior design service that would leave them with more time for their families 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 clients as possible. The online interior design (e-design) platform I’ve created for Orangetree Interiors allows clients to collaborate with an e-designer over the phone, by email and via a Virtual Design Centre so that clients can stay focused on their daily tasks and personal obligations. What’s even better is that since clients don’t have to meet their e-designer in person, they save time AND money because they don’t have to pay for the e-designer’s 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. And, perhaps the best part is that this service allows our e-designers to provide photo-realistic images and/or renderings so that clients get to see the finished product before they buy any furnishings and decor - ensuring that they will love the overall design before they spend any money. Essentially they get to “try” before they “buy” eliminating any possibility of buyer’s remorse. This was something I could personally identify with and was really excited about providing for our clients.
“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."
