Design Done Right
Welcome to Lenore Brooks Design. If you have a home you need to prepare for sale, or one you want to decorate or renovate, I can help.
I’m a designer with over a decade of experience at architecture and design firms in Toronto. But before that, I grew up in a DIY-loving family that moved a lot, so I know home renovation and home staging inside and out. I bring all of this to you when helping you with your projects.
Whether you are a home owner, a realtor, or a general contractor, I can work with you to make a space that you will love. Take a look at how we can work together on projects ranging from home staging to decorating and design and read some client success stories below.
Get the help you need to market your home and lessen the stress of moving. From planning consultations to complete home staging, I provide custom staging that will set your home apart.
Home Design and Decorating
Whether your project is big or small, design can help. I offer a range of services from colour consultations to permit-ready drawings to major renovations.
Just wanted to thank you for an incredible to-do-list and being so professional to help us stage our home to sell. It worked! We had an offer within days, and our home is sold. Your job certainly isn’t easy, as I know how much work it was to de-clutter and put away some of my favourite things, but I’m so glad I listened to all of your tips for selling.

If you’re ever in need of a stager, I recommend Lenore Brooks. She has now done several stagings for my clients, and the results have been great. Most importantly the clients like her, she doesn’t come across as your typical pushy stager. She’s got great ideas and gets them across in a non-threatening way.

When we bought our house, we brought in Lenore to consult on colour and furnishing. Throughout the process she was helpful and professional, interested in letting us articulate our vision rather than imposing her own; she was not shy about sharing her opinions (and the reasoning behind them) when asked, but made it clear that the final decisions were ours. We will definitely return to her when we start planning to renovate our home.
—Matt Walsh, home owner
Just want to give you a big thank you for helping me so many times with picking colours for my clients. A perfect example: a client had a hard time finding the colours for her living room. She had been out 3 different times, came home with colours and didn’t like any of them. I said, I will see what Lenore suggests. I came back with Lenore’s picks for the main colour and and accent wall colour and my client and her husband loved it. The room took on a charm that we never envisioned. Thanks to you, Lenore, everyone was happy. This has happened every time I ask Lenore for a colour consultation. So in closing I am more than happy to recommend Lenore’s colour consultations to everyone. She knows her stuff and my happy clients are proof of her talents.

Lenore helped us with a kitchen renovation project in 2013. We really appreciated her flexibility in being willing to help, or not help, with whatever aspects of the project suited us. Lenore was patient and understood that sometimes the decision-making involved a couple of steps forward and then a couple back. I wanted someone who would be honest, and not just tell me what I wanted to hear, and Lenore provided that. I felt that Lenore really listened and wanted to make sure to address special needs or concerns that I had. I never felt that Lenore was trying to impose a vision on me of what the end product would be. When the project was finished I thought the kitchen looked wonderful and I could see in Lenore’s eyes that she felt the same way.

I can’t imagine what we would have done without Lenore’s design support for our Centre’s new office. As a not-for-profit organization, we were truly excited about creating our space but we were also completely out of our element. Lenore’s expertise, ideas, talent and connections made a complex process infinitely more manageable. We are forever grateful to her for working with us to create a beautiful, bright and professional space for our clients, staff members and volunteers. We love our new space.
