Thank you Toronto Life for the lovely piece in 2012 City Home Edition.
“Growing up across the pond, British designer Gillies knew from a young age that she wanted to be an interior designer (rearranging furniture was an early hobby). She moved to Canada 10 years ago, and her classic sensibility hasn’t strayed far from her roots: Gillies cites renowned English designer Kelly Hoppen as a major design inspiration. One dining room renovation took a traditional space – rosewood table, silk draperies – and gave it a colourful boost using a bold geometric carpet and a lamp with an oversized black drum shade and gold leaf interior. 415-489-6781.”
