Joyce MacFarlane

I’m  a Toronto writer and interior design consultant who is looking to share stories about creative Canadians who inspire me. I’ve written about design for The Toronto Star, The National Post, Toronto Life magazine and Canadian Home and Country magazine.

There are many bright lights on the Canadian design landscape and I think it’s time to spread the word about their talents.  Canadianoriginals will introduce you to interesting people you should know about. I want to be a champion for original thought, creativity and those who have chosen this path. Please join me on this new adventure.
