Her trademark hair and big energy make Tiffany Pratt unforgettable. But her hands-on approach to design, and the care she has for her clients, make her irreplaceable. Tiffany fell in love with beautiful things at a young age when she would memorize every page of Vogue magazine. Today, that same appreciation for beauty has carried through into her day-to-day work. She sees exquisite in the unexpected, mixes old with new, merges elegant with livable, and she lives and breathes her truth that “this can be beautiful.”

She believes that we shouldn’t take our spaces too seriously, and that great design is not about how much money you spend, but rather how creative you can be. Amongst the many hats she wears, Leigh-Ann is a regular contributor on Cityline, a spokesperson for Black & Decker Canada and Rust-Oleum Canada. With a passion to educate and inspire, Leigh-Ann embraces every opportunity she gets to spark creativity and instill confidence in others who strive to “DO IT YOURSELF.”
