Emily Griffin Design is an award-winning Toronto-based Interior Design firm that has built a reputation for creating beautiful and timeless interiors.

With every project we take on, EG Design stylishly weaves together design with function to create beautiful spaces that are grounded in real life. We don’t have a singular “look” - the houses we design vary in mood and style because we create homes that reflect our clients’ tastes and vision. Underlying all of our work though, are quality finishes, a layered mix of old and new, and a creative twist on the end product that doesn’t look like the neighbours.

For the past 15 years, almost all of our work has come from repeat clients and referrals because we consistently understand and respect our clients’ needs, budgets and timelines while achieving that “Wow” result at the end of every project. EG Design provides a full service solution for any design challenge – from complete new builds or re-builds, to renovations, to re-decorating a home in a way that truly reflects a homeowner’s lifestyle and personality.

Our Services


We take on all the design aspects of any project from the initial ‘vision’ meetings and the development of architectural plans in CAD; to the bidding process for builders, to the design of your kitchen and bathrooms including sourcing of all finishes and fixtures.


We oversee the entire renovation or building process from start to finish so that you don’t have to – from working with trades, to ensuring the design plans are implemented as intended, with quality and attention to every detail including managing budgets.


When the messy part is done, we bring your new space alive through the selection of colours, furniture, window treatments, rugs, lighting, and accessories. We don’t stop until your art is hung and the bookshelves and table tops are styled to your taste.
