About Our Firm

Our mission is to design beautiful homes while focusing on style, overall comfort and liveability for our clients and their families.

We are an innovative team of designers, certified as Maria Killam True Colour Experts. To say that we are creative would be a cliché – but it would also be correct. Hibou Design & Co. has been featured in many local and international publications including Style at HomeMontreal Home, and Style Me Pretty. Based out of Montreal, but with clients in many countries, our projects have ranged widely in size, scope and budget and we work in sync to bring the best in our combined backgrounds, education and experience to make your space suit your needs and lifestyle. 

One of our most important goals is to make our clients’ design project as easy and stress-free as possible by foreseeing and preventing common problems that result in wasted time and money. 

But what we really want to see is, when we leave a room, that the entire space has been pulled together and transformed into something beautiful — and beautifully functional.
