My Portfolio 

It has been my greatest pleasure to take peoples beloved pieces and renew them.


With almost a decade under my belt, I can honestly say it is imperative that I take the time to understand my clients personal needs when choosing finishes. Understanding their lifestyle, their décor preferences and their families needs has been my top priority. Because of this, my clients are not just clients to me, they are forever a part of the “New to You” family.


These are just some of my favourites. Scroll through, get ideas and inspiration

Styled Package Furniture

New to You offers already styled décor packages to compliment selected inventory pieces. Often I would hear, “that piece is staged so lovely, but I can’t make it look like that at home! I don’t have pretty décor and I don’t know where to begin with styling it?! I don’t know how?” Well now you can have that magazine worthy “staged” look too! We now offer furniture pieces and include, as an option, all the accessories that help make it fabulous in the picture. And what’s more, buy it all together and save!
