Andria Cowan Molyneaux ACM

Andria Cowan Molyneaux

Founder/Principal

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.

Jody Lavergne ACM Designs

Jody Lavergne

Operations Manager

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.

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.
