I believe life is too short to not live in a space that doesn’t inspire us. Your space should speak to you.  Love your surroundings. Take pride in your investment.  You deserve it.  Show off your space.  It’s my goal to create dynamic and well-designed interiors that make you proud to call them yours.


After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design, Emilio worked internationally in Mexico. For the past 10 years he's taught interior design at the post-secondary level, and worked on residential, commercial, interior, exhibition and product design in Canada.

Emilio Barbero

BA in Interior Design

We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?

I love that I can benefit and impact people's lives through my designs.

Describe your ideal project:

For me, it's not so much the project, but the people that I enjoy working with.

I love creating relationships with people and teams by creating a mutual respect, learning from each other, and growing together.

Describe your go-to style:

At the moment, I'm drawn to simple lines, clean, square edges and pops of colour.  But, I do love modern and Scandinavian influences, shiny metals, and natural stones.

What drives you to design?

I love learning about design.  I love learning about and sharing with others the impact that other designers have had throughout history.  Learning from the past and seeing its influence today is what drives me to do what I do.

From books, movies, architecture, travel, and personal experiences while visiting spaces.

From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
