Executive Office

"When I traded in my "Partner" office on Bay Street for the "CEO suite" uptown and was afforded an opportunity to do anything I wanted with my workspace, I turned to Svetlana and Estee Design to create my ideal office. I had seen some of Estee Design's work elsewhere and my first instinct was to ask Svetlana to recreate that for me in my new executive suite. But she did more and much better than that. She designed something that was right for ME, that reflected MY personality, MY temperament, MY aesthetic, MY style and MY work habits. As a professional, she would not have been content to simply reproduce something "off the shelf" or something that had been designed for someone else.

The result was a spectuacular, unique, modern, totally customized "look and feel" that dazzles every guest who sees it and that fills me with a sense of pride, comfort and confidence every time I get to the office and sit down at my desk. Svetlana made a point of finding out not just what I like, but who I am, how I work and I how I feel. Only then did she set out to design my space. In the process, I ended up with a space that was totally created FOR ME because it is ABOUT ME. Svetlana raised my standards and my expectations of what an office could and should be.

And she delivered."

About Svetlana Tryaskina
"Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation." - Charles Baudelaire

Svetlana Tryaskina is an interior designer and founder of ESTEE DESIGN INC. Born in Moscow in a family of a professional musicians, Svetlana was introduced to the world of art from an early age. Svetlana's grandfather was a prominent artist in Soviet Russia and her grandmother a professional actress. After receiving her degree in music from the prestigious Russian Academy of Music, Svetlana moved to New York, where she began her career as a textile artist.

During her years in New York City, working with many fashion designers and creating her own original work, Svetlana discovered her love for colors, textures, patterns and textiles. Her extensive work experience with companies like Ralph Lauren, Jones New York, Escada, to name a few, has taught her strong communication and organizational skills and an overall good work ethic.

In 2001, Svetlana and her family moved to Toronto. Following her passion for interior design, Svetlana enrolled into the International Academy of Design and Technology of Toronto. During her last year at the Academy, Svetlana began her career as an interior designer, helping developers restore old buildings all around Toronto.

Svetlana is creative, detail-oriented and enthusiastic about her work. In each project, she takes great pleasure in designing spaces where a mix of volumes, textures, light and colors result in the creation of a comfortable atmosphere and restful interior. Svetlana's clear feeling for color, composition and materials like fabrics and wall coverings, woods and stone, her interest in unique objects and art, helped express her personality and develop a signature style of enduring, organic and timeless appeal.

"Design should make a difference! For me design is not just about putting objects and colors together. It is a way of organizing a personal space, whether it is a house or a work place, to express the personality and intellect of those who inhabit them. When I meet with my clients for the first time I ask a lot of questions trying to figure out their habits and life styles, their likes and dislikes. I pay attention to all the little details and everything is important. I take great pleasure in positively impacting people's lives by helping execute my client's own vision in designing spaces that make them happier and their interiors more enjoyable!"
