» About Us «
As Kawartha Design Co was built on creativity and using that creativity to work through grief as a suicide survivor, Mental Health is extremely important to us. Our handcrafted signs & decor pieces are aimed to bring inspiration into your life, whether they make you laugh, cry or feel empowered.
We love to give back to the community, therefore a portion of each sale on select products within our Collections will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association so that we can help make even a slight difference with those struggling; because we are all affected.
» About Me «
Hey! I'm Nikki, the she woman behind Kawartha Design Co, formerly known as Nikki .G. Designs.
When I started this business, my story wasn't openly a part of it but I knew I needed it to be a part of the bigger story. When I was 23 my boyfriend, Chris, completed suicide. As anyone who has experienced this type of loss & trauma knows, it's a complex & excruciating journey to walk.
Designing & creating helped me work through the grief I was experiencing as a suicide survivor. Like many, I've struggled with my Mental Health throughout my life and I believe that breaking the stigma and opening up the dialogue is fiercely vital.
Here we are today, a life I've rebuilt to be so thankful for, with the best partner in crime I could ask for, & our dog of course! With my vision finally coming to life - creating inspirational decor, bringing awareness & giving back to help those struggling with Mental Health.
I'm always working on expanding my knowledge & experience that give me the opportunity to create the best product that inspires you & I'm honoured when I'm asked to create a piece for the big moments in your lives.
