Katie Rioux

Modern, Elevated, Comfortable

Katie designs first and foremost with intention, creating spaces that are fresh, uncluttered, and elevated with a warm, modern touch. She thoughtfully crafts purposeful places for everyday items and weaves boldness into her designs with pops of color or unexpected patterns. Experimenting with natural elements and layering rich textures balances style with comfort, supporting her ultimate goal of creating spaces that clients feel utterly at home with, and never want to leave.

Connect with Katie if you dig health food (really), could use a workout buddy, and like to think BIG!

Jenn MacDonald

Timeless, Balanced, Versatile

Jenn loves the versatility of working with multiple schools of design, embracing inspiration from a wide variety of unique aesthetics. Her strength is working with couples with opposing styles; she loves the challenge of weaving together differing items and influences so that they flow together harmoniously. She appreciates balance in all her work, creating areas that are both carefree and comfortable. She mixes manmade and natural materials so each space comes together with holistic beauty that celebrates the personalities of the people it was designed for.

Reach out to Jenn if you need to balance your yin and yang, have a romantic side, and welcome camper ‘insider tips’!

Mhairi Loftus

Sophisticated, Distinctive, Worldly

As a mother of two, Mhairi (pronounced Vah – ree) is inspired by design that first and foremost creates a functional, warm space for a family to feel at home. Her interiors evoke this by emphasizing uncluttered, inviting design. Raised in Scotland, Mhairi brings European flair to her work, weaving together traditional and modern elements, and texture to create depth, visual interest and balance.

Get in touch with Mhairi if you collect kilts and whiskey, vibe on Broadway, and love a good to-do list!

Candice Arcuri

Eclectic, Dynamic, Thoughtful

Candice has the ability to conceptualize a complete, well planned space when she first enters a room. She brings individual style out in each of her clients' spaces by getting to the root of it all.  Incorporating well loved, sentimental pieces with a new, fresh design is what makes her approach so personal. She loves combining elements from nature with an organic vibe to weave warmth into her eclectic designs.

Connect with Candice if you share a love for a good 90's mix tape, like to eat and welcome a good sweat!

“We chose to work with Katie and Jenn to design our family room earlier this year. They were instrumental in completely transforming the space; they shared many options at different price points that allowed us to customize it to fit our budget. The end result was a gorgeous space that we LOVE to spend time in and that we still can't quite believe is "ours." We're working with them again on our master bedroom now and look forward to our next project together. I highly recommend the team from DWK Interiors - they are a pleasure to work with and their energy and excitement for their work is contagious!” 

Sarah, Mount Royal

“From start to finish, the DWK team exceeded my expectations. I contacted them in the Fall of 2017 to get their assistance in choosing appropriate renovations and the associated interior design required to turn my new home purchase into my dream home. Jenn and Katie were both extremely professional and prompt throughout the process. When original plans could not be executed, they quickly found appropriate alternative solutions. I would definitely utilize the DWK team again and would recommend them to anybody looking to update their space.” 

Krista, Priddis

“When we first contacted Katie we had a very general idea of how we would like to have our house decorated. In time, and as Katie applied her wonderful skills, we realized that she was not only bringing together the house of our dreams but going way beyond that. Every day we wake up we fall in love with the house over and over again. It’s absolutely great to be able to work with Katie and I can’t wait for what our future projects will bring!” 

Patricia, Mahogany

“We first worked with Katie in 2016 to help update our living room and dining room, and could not have been more pleased with the transformation. So when we bought a new house, we knew we had to call her again to help us fill our new spaces. Katie is a consummate professional with an incredible eye. She is mindful of your budget and provides lots of options and ideas. Added bonus: she has a wonderful personality and is so easy to work with and be around. I would highly recommend Katie and the team from DWK Interiors.” 

Colleen, Rosedale

“Katie and the DWK team were absolutely fantastic to work with! From the first meeting to the completion of the project they were professional, easy to work with, and always available with any questions. We were so amazed by the final result and it exceeded our expectations. I really appreciated their process in the early stages to ensure we were aligned, updates as we got closer to the reveal day, and couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. I would absolutely recommend DWK if you’re looking for a quality designer to work with on your project whether big or small.” 

Jeremy, Patterson

“We recently worked with DWK Interiors to redecorate and furnish most of our main floor - kitchen, dining room, great room and front entrance. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Kate and Mhairi were fun to work with. They listened to our likes and dislikes and worked patiently with us until we loved every one of our selections. I was hesitant about purchasing furniture sight unseen and without actually sitting on sofas and chairs, etc. I need not have worried. Mhairi shared specific specs and measurements with us in advance to answer all of my questions and the quality and comfort of the pieces is excellent. They communicated with us regularly throughout the process and kept us updated on progress and scheduling, which helped build our excitement. Most impressive is that they have helped us create a space that just feels so “us” - it encapsulates our tastes, style and how we live in and use each space. I did worry that using a designer we would end up with a space that felt staged or didn’t suit us or our lifestyle. In actual fact, I don’t think we could have achieved something so perfect for us without their help. It seems they got to know us even better than we know ourselves!” 

Tina, Kensington
