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 at 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.

Katie Golec

Junior Designer

Katie’s specialty is in kitchen and bath design, and she’s one of the best people to talk with when it comes to textiles! She’ll play an important role in developing the concept for your project, and creating the computer renderings that will enable you to visualize what your space will look like when it’s complete.

Recognized as one of the rising stars in the Canadian design profession, Katie is a certified aging in place specialist, and she holds two coveted awards from the  Decorators & Designers Association of Canada. She’s a graduate of Algonquin College’s design program, and launched a design company in northern Ontario prior to joining us.

Jody Lavergne

Operations Manager

Meet Jody, our clients love her and so do we. Love how uber organized and efficient we are? 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.
