Hilary Farr

Hilary Farr is one of Toronto's top home designers. She has lived in Australia, England, California, and New York, but having been born in Toronto, is now happily back home in Canada. Her unique sense of design comes from her international lifestyle. 

From Hilary's properties in Los Angeles' Laurel Canyon and Hancock Park, to Santa Barbara, New York and Toronto, she has honed her talent. She understands the nuts and bolts of the business, from building from the ground up, to room additions, from renovations to the execution of design and beauty. She also understands the art of setting the stage and the importance of lighting to set the mood and atmosphere. But perhaps her designs' success are based upon her ability to listen to and understand the personalities of her clients.

With such a keen eye, Hilary became the first designer to "stage" properties for sale. Since that time she has watched that industry flourish. She continues to build and design homes in the downtown core where she herself owns properties.

"I love making houses into homes, watching families embrace their new lives, and knowing that I contributed to their happiness. My clients are from both sides of the border, some of whom have been with me from the day they were married to their fourth home and now their fourth child!"

Desta Ostapyk

Desta is a Toronto-based designer who graduated in 2004 from the Toronto International Academy of Design and Technology in Interior Design, and has since focused on a career in the Television Industry.

Her design sense is highly influenced by the environments around her. Living in downtown Toronto allows for constant exposure to art, architecture, antique shops, and so many different cultures that shape her as much as they do the city. She also draws a great deal of inspiration from the places she has visited while traveling. Desta loves the mixing of old and new, believing that “it just gives the space a personality.” Follow Desta on her blog.
