When did Gabriella first discover her passion for design consulting?
If you check out the House of Borg website, you’re immediately met with tons of colour and personality! As the founder, Gabriella Nassief Borg sanctions her love of design and spaces starting from a young age. She attended art school growing up and has a background in the visual arts. It also doesn’t hurt that both of her parents are artists, so her home “was always a creative space”. And about eight years ago, she made the decision to delve a little deeper into the world of interior design.
In her work as the founding design consultant at House of Borg, Gabriella really takes pride in her “obsessive eye for flow”. She also really has a knack for “creative design solutions”. They offer a number of different services to Toronto and the GTA. Everything from full space consultations to revamping just a single room in your house. House of Borg also offers unique services, such as upcycling consultations and design solutions.

So, how does House of Borg’s design process work?
For Gabriella, she describes her design aesthetic as first and foremost leading with colour. She gravitates toward bright colours and textures due to the energy they give a space. Personally, she‘s also drawn to ‘‘pieces and homes that have that other-world feel”. In that, along with other environmental reasons, is why she tries to be a ”champion of vintage and thrifted decor”. She likes to think that her aesthetic as a professional design consultant rests somewhere between old and new.
For clients, House of Borg likes to customize her approach for each customer and tailor it to their specific needs. Gabriella starts with a short ‘‘discovery conversation‘‘ to determine the scope of the project. And from there they find a service that ”feels like a good starting place” and have discussions pertaining to goals, budget and style. As a design consultant, Gabriella provides a ”comprehensive design package” to her clients that serves as a ”blueprint” moving forward.
