my very serious bio

CYNTHIA IS AN INTERIOR AND FLORAL DESIGNER KNOWN FOR CHARACTER-FILLED SPACES AND CAREFREE FLOWER DISPLAYS.

With an infectious creative spirit and a belief that we all need more beautiful in our lives, Cynthia shares inspiration as a floral and interiors editorial stylist and content contributor, blogger and workshop teacher. Her work is regularly featured in leading lifestyle media.

An advocate of the Slow Flower Movement, Cynthia sustainably grows small-batch speciality blooms and designs unfussy seasonal arrangements. This soulful aesthetic spills into Cynthia's interiors which are true-to-the-space, trendless mash-ups of scale, texture and colour.

Cynthia and her husband Graham share a passion for saving forgotten houses and have restored a range of period properties.  

 

A former public relations executive, Cynthia now devotes her time to family and creative projects from her home base in Toronto.

design philosophy

DON'T DO WHAT YOU'RE TOLD. PLEASE YOURSELF. DON'T DISPOSE. SEE POTENTIAL. DON'T BE AFRAID. TAKE A CHANCE.

TREND LESS

Get turned on by the lasting not the fleeting. Live with things that are older than you. Embrace the classics and quality. Work with what you've got.

MOTHER NATURE IS THE ORIGINAL STYLIST

And her candy is flowers. We should always have them. They lift a space and our spirits. They unite us. Source local and sustainable. Grow your own. Forage responsibly.

HOMES HAVE SOULS

Let your house speak. Love and care for her. Fill her with the people, creatures and things that bring joy and make you smile. 

YOU DO YOU

High and low. Treasures and trash. Big box and boutique. Diy and couture. Old and new. When you surround yourself with what you love, it all goes together.

we all need more beautiful in our lives
