Anne Marie Wolochatiuk
Anne Marie’s passion for colour and design began when she first held a crayon in her little hand. Later, Anne Marie expressed herself as an artist through her paintings where she was inspired by color and light. It was a logical next step for Anne Marie to use that inspiration in her home decors.
Recently returning to North America after living abroad, Anne Marie brings her extensive international experiences to her artistic and decorating style. Over the last twenty years, Anne Marie has visited over 40 different countries and has lived in South Korea and Singapore where she first began her restyling career.
Anne Marie took advantage of her unique circumstances and immersed herself in local cultures. She was in her element, and her natural penchant for getting a bargain was kicked into high gear during her travels. It wasn’t surprising to see Anne Marie haggling at the night market in Changmai, perusing peddler’s wares on the roadside in Ubud, or brushing the dust off found treasures at a flea market in Puerto Banus. Her clients were quick to realize Anne Marie’s gift of achieving a high-end look without a high-end price.
Her style? Chic and eclectic. Hip yet elegant. Classic sophistication that is warm and welcoming.
Anne Marie graduated from Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, with an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration degree, as well as having her ASP accreditation. She currently resides with her husband in Austin, Texas but spends a substantial amount of time in her home in the Niagara region. She has two daughters; one who continues her post graduate studies and the other who lives abroad.
