Vanessa holds an Associates Degree in Interior Design from the International Academy of Design & Technology in Toronto. She learned about colour principle, space planning and Autocad to name a few. She decided to go into interior design because she loves art and creating; she loves seeing the homeowner’s vision come to light!
Her design style would be “transitional” — she has a little modern mixed in with some traditional pieces. She also loves adding some rustic pieces in if she can. She is definitely not afraid of colour but does love the simplicity and brightness of soft, neutral colours.
When she first started with Homes by DeSantis, she was very excited to work on some very modern projects and interiors. Her favourite part of her job is meeting the homeowners during browsing hours at the studio. She loves seeing the inspiration pictures and learning about people’s styles and helping them see it all come together when they come in for the design studio appointment.
When you purchase a new home, the design process can be a little overwhelming. Vanessa wants to make sure that from the moment you walk into the studio for browsing to the end of your appointment, you have no worries and that you enjoy every moment! She does her very best to make this an enjoyable experience for every purchaser she meets.
Even as a small child, Jenny’s passion for Interior Design was evident, as she watched Home Design shows such as Trading Spaces while flipping through the pages of Architectural Digest. Her creativity and flare for design endured throughout high school, leading her to Sheridan College, where she graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Interior Design.
Jenny’s professional career started in Commercial Design, at a prestigious Hamilton Architectural Design firm. This tenure provided her with invaluable experience dealing with building and municipal codes, technical detailing and construction processes, all while offering an opportunity to hone her considerable design skills.
After deciding to make the transition from commercial to residential design, Jenny worked in a few specialized positions including colour consultations, space planning, and cabinet design. Her experience and enthusiasm for residential design brought Jenny to her “Dream” job here at Homes by DeSantis as an Interior Design Consultant.
Jenny’s design style is transitional, which allows her to easily tune into every homeowner’s personal style, while always keeping in mind practical design requirements. She always encourages homeowners to select coordinating neutral finishes, while recommending accents of colour through paint and décor. Homes By DeSantis’ huge selection of standard and upgraded finishes and features, make it easy for her to assist in creating original designs for every home, with any style or budget.
Jenny is so grateful for the opportunity to assist homeowners in creating their dream homes, and loves the challenge of making each and every project a unique experience for each and every unique Homes by DeSantis client!
