When you hire AVA INTERIOR DESIGN, you work with me, Ania Maternicki directly. You will see me throughout the assigned scope of work. AVA INTERIOR DESIGN billing is hourly and as needed only so that you have control as to how much you would like me to be involved throughout your project. I can also be the one shopping for your finishes from plumbing fixtures, electrical lighting fixtures, wallpaper, paint colours, furniture to accessories to compliment your space adding final touches. You can also be involved as little or much as you would like. I would be so happy to take on your project personally and fulfill the initial vision with a step by step design process and involvement.
My job is to take what might be the burden of design decision-making away from you and take control – or at least as much control as you wish to pass on. Some Clients have no time or interest in taking on design decision making and hand over the entire Interior Design and Decorating project to me, wishing to only see the end result and enjoy. There are also Clients who wish to be more involved such as making the final decision from a few great options that I bring forward.
I graduated from Ontario College of Art and Design, O.C.A.D. in 1999. It was a four-year, full time program After graduation and earning my AOCAD; the following years graced me with a different kind of hands on educational experience. I worked in the Interior Design and Builder’s world as an Interior Design Consultant, Interior Decorator, Design Finishes Customer Care and Finishes Project Coordinator. I worked with the most wonderful Co-workers, Trades, Consultants and Clients. I was fortunate to be working for high-end luxury projects names such as ‘No10 Bellair’ in Toronto Yorkville district and ‘Avignon on Bayview’.
I took a pause in my Career and after starting a Family I decided to start my own Business. For my company name, I decided on the initials of my sons and my own; ‘AVA’, adding in my consultation specialty hence; AVA INTERIOR DESIGN. Since having my own company, I have had the pleasure of getting to know my Clients, working on their high-end luxury homes in many parts of the GTA including Oakville, Mississauga, Etobicoke, The Kingsway in Etobicoke, Kleinburg, Aurora … Some of my larger projects included ‘The Private Residences of the Four Seasons’ in Toronto downtown and completing multiple luxury multi million dollar model homes for a well-known Builder. I have recently been a part of an entire interior massive renovation and implemented my Design Consultation to make this home most beautiful!
My style has been flexible keeping in mind what is most important; the end user(s), the Client. It is so rewarding having successfully completed rooms where the Husband and Wife have two different design tastes and they have both been happy with my result. The key is to keep a steady balance of great taste in beautiful things together with the ultimate function of the space, which is just as important. It is knowing when it is a good time to ‘break the design rules’ and to create a unique, beautiful space. My Design reputation is having a cultural sense of taste that has a flavour of traditional design where results are truly timeless and at the same time being able to instill modern touches of today’s influences; a perfect blend of history, the present and what will be in the future.
My design capabilities cover all parts of the home including; Home Theatre, Bedrooms, Home Offices, Mudrooms, Bathrooms, luxury walk in closets, Wine Cellars, Bars, Basement, Dining, Living & Family rooms, Kitchens and much more from pre-build stage to final touches and anything in between. My website shows some of my work; www.avainteriordesign.com but I post recent activity often on https://www.instagram.com/ania_maternicki/
