Contact: Laurette Coetzee
With a natural artistic flair and love of creating exquisite spaces that are not only functional but perfectly suited to the individual commissioning them, Laurette got her start in the interior industry as a design assistant. In 2005 she went into partnership with her mother, offering residential interior decorating services.
Her talents did not go unnoticed in the residential décor space and she was soon invited to work on a client’s corporate space. One project led to two and soon the referrals mounted, later landing her a consulting position at a leading design consultancy and furniture manufacturer. This position enabled her to work on large-scale commercial projects at some of South Africa’s large corporates.
It was during this time that she realised the extent to which most people battled to visualise abstract concepts and that the traditional mood boards and sketches fell short of the effectiveness of a well-crafted rendering when presenting design concepts to clients. The rest, as they say, is history…
Today, Laurette calls Toronto home and offers interior rendering and decoarting services to the trade, and homeowners alike. No job is too big or small, and Laurette always welcomes a chat about collaborations on upcoming and current projects that can help to pull ideas out of the realms of imagination and give clients a solid design vision.
When Laurette is not crafting interior renderings, she devotes her time to custom jewellery design using Canadian-sourced diamonds, running marathons and immersing herself in the vibrant arts and culture of Toronto.
