Hard work, dedication & professionalism is what Kimberley Seldon prescribes as the three main ingredients for success in the Interior Design & Decorating Field. As Kimberley Seldon started of her career in TV production in Los Angeles, she has come a long way to be succesful in the Interior Design Industry as not only does this Toronto based designer have her own line of decor products, she is the current Decorating Editor for the Style At Home Magazine and she is also a regular guest star on the City Tv’s City Line hosted by Tracey Moore.
As Kimberley spent the last three days at the Custom Home Interiors showroom, hosting her Business Of Design seminar to the various Interior Designer’s and Decorators of Ottawa, as well as the budding Designers and Decorators, we got a chance to get up close and personal with Kimberley to get her thoughts on her recent Ottawa visit as well as get a sneak peak at what her seminar attendees had learned this past weekend!
I would like to thank Kimberley Seldon and the Kimberley Seldon Design Group for choosing Custom Home Interiors as her place of choice to host her Business of Design seminars. Also reserve a special thanks to all the staff at Custom Home Interiors for making this event possible!

Welcome to the Designers Desk!
Created with one goal in mind, the Designers Desk will share some of our cool “SECRET” designer tips and engage and connect with people not only interested in design and decorating but social media as well! In the design industry, many people believe the Internet is solely for email and searching for suppliers. We are here to prove the doubters wrong!
Custom Home Interiors is an innovative Ottawa based company that focuses on interior decorating, design and home outfitting. People that walk into our 8000 sq ft. showroom all share the same expression…”WHOA!” From our fabulous décor and design concepts, to our super cool home theater and automation display, we enjoy the simple things in life and love to help people out with their projects!
We want to use this blog as a platform to get to know all you wonderful people from all walks of life and to share our thoughts and advice on what we feel is important to note!
At the Designers Desk, we have four great individuals who will be contributing to this blog. Allow me to introduce them:
Big Man on Campus
The Marketing Guy
Dawn Simpson (not related to Homer; we checked to make sure)
The Decor Diva
Along with our friends at M2JL studio, Kimberley’s Design Dish , Design Ties as well as many others, we hope to bring to you a whole new perspective to interior design, decorating and the power of social media. So as opposed to reading the assembly instructions for your furniture, my hope is that this blog will make you color outside the lines!
