Our Work Speaks for Itself
Our mixed portfolio of cottage, home and commercial design, and close collaboration with local craftspeople, help us think broadly and creatively about every project we do. Our growing award shelf highlights the beautiful works we’ve completed for Highlands residents—design that uses the latest in materials and techniques. We take an active role in a Canada’s major design associations to stay at the forefront of trade suppliers, trends, and industry changes.

Clients are often surprised to learn that decorating & design is my second career—a long-time passion pursued after years working as a police officer. To me, it’s been a natural progression.
Because of my experience, I opened ACM Designs with total clarity about what I want to offer you as a client: happiness in your new beautiful space, and a great experience creating it. There are so many things that go into making this happen: how we treat you as a client, collaborations with local craftspeople, pursuing multiple certifications and licenses, and heading the Decorators & Designers Association of Canada, just to name a few.
Meet Jody, our clients love her and so do we. If you love how uber organized and efficient we are, you can thank Jody. Her domain is, well, everything “non” design–and that’s an awful lot of stuff! From project paperwork to invoicing, she’s our Chef de Mission. Jody studied business management at Humber College (did we mention that she’s the most sensible one on our team?) Don’t let her business acumen fool you because she’s actually the most enthusiastic crafter here, not to mention just as quirky as the rest of us.
Pukar is our in-house kitchen and bath expert, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone more passionate about the craft. Seriously. He’s a details guy whose incredible renderings will enable you to visualize your finished space. Don’t let his professional demeanour fool you, he is the biggest joker around here (yes, even more than Andria).
Pukar has a diploma in interior decorating, and postgraduate in kitchen and bath design from Georgian College.
Recognized as one of the rising stars in the Canadian design profession, Katie was added to the prestigious “Top 30 Under 30” designer list (2019) and won the Best New Designer award (2020) by the National Kitchen & Bath Association. She has also earned multiple design awards from the Decorators & Designers Association of Canada. Katie graduated with honors from Algonquin College’s design program. Her specialty is decor and styling, and she’s one of the best people to talk to when it comes to textiles.
