Our Philosophy


Metrow Vink Design Group is based in the heart of Muskoka, Ontario. Muskoka is a thriving part of Canada’s cottage country. An area filled with beautiful homes and cottages, and unsurpassed natural beauty. Over the years Michelle and Carolyn have had the great pleasure of working alongside some of the areas premier builders, and tradespeople to create many of these outstanding properties. They are proud of the enduring relationships they have developed with both builders and trades who share the same professionalism and vision. Whether a new build, a renovation, or a commercial project Metrow Vink Design Group is fully equipped to help from the conceptual design phase to the finishing decorative elements.

Michelle and Carolyn find design to be an endlessly exciting and inspiring field, and strive to maintain a fresh outlook with each new project they take on. “We are always searching for new products and materials entering the marketplace that may enhance our clients spaces. While at the same time we also love to find unique ways to repurpose reclaimed materials and objects.” What can’t be found through retailers,  Metrow Vink Design Group will create custom. “We have relationships with talented craftspeople, artisans, and seamstresses who make our designs come to life.”

"We love our new cottage renovation! We contacted Michelle and Carolyn to give our dated cottage a facelift and could not be happier with our end result. They have great design ideas and are on top of all the current decorating trends. They were fast and efficient and a pleasure to work with."

− Sheryl & Warren
