ABOUT VAL MALNAR
Founder + Principle Designer
My passion for interiors began as a pre-teen. As the first child of young parents, I grew up with humble beginnings and a family tradition of hard work. I dreamed of having a beautiful home
that I could share with others. Despite my passion for design, I began my career life in marketing in hopes that it would provide me with the stability to design the home I had imagined. Although I enjoyed marketing, something was missing. When I went on maternity leave with my first child, I saw an opportunity to make a change. I went back to school and graduated with honours from the Interior Decorating program at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario. Since then, I’ve worked as an Interior Decorator and Kitchen and Bathroom Preliminary Engineer. While these roles helped me to hone my skills, the amount of time spent away from home and family left me looking for a more fulfilling path.
I set out to create interior decorating services that were convenient and efficient, giving me more time for what matters most without sacrificing my career. The result is a business that does just that, and as a bonus, gives my clients the same freedom. The virtual nature of my business also makes it more accessible for clients of different lifestyles and stages. As someone who believes that beautiful, functional design is for everyone, that means more than I could ever express.
As a mother and small business owner, you can trust that I understand the needs of your household. I understand the importance of form and function. I understand the significance of the daily moments and milestone celebrations that take place under your roof. I’m honored to take the decorating off your plate so you can get back to your beautiful life.
