Dawn Chapnick Designs (DCD) is a full service design firm. We are unique as we combine the art and science of design. Regardless of scope our goal is to create a framework within to bring our clients visions to life using Dawn’s passion for design and her unique imagination.
It is critical to understand how to execute the design build at the design concept stage. This ensures that the integrity of the design is fulfilled from concept through to the construction. We create all the interior design plans, elevations and layouts. We also can create custom furniture designs.
Dawn Chapnick Designs will manage your project from start to finish making sure there is no disconnect between design and construction. We offer a hands on approach with our clients and cater to clients needs throughout the duration of the project.
Dawn lives, breathes, and feels all things design and luxury. Drawing inspiration from her everyday surroundings, Dawn believes that design is a highly sensory experience reaching ones’ physical, psychological, and emotional being. Whether it is a lavish and rolling landscape, the unique contours and variations of a building’s architecture, the colors and layers of magically entwined haute couture fashion, or the rhythmic chime and passionate cadence of music, Dawn has demonstrated an innate ability to translate her surroundings into design inspirations unique to each client and to each space.
Dawn has been imparting her passion for design on various residential and commercial spaces throughout the City of Toronto. Over the past 15 years, Dawn has hand selected and built an extensive network of project managers, general contractors, and skilled artisans with whom she collaborates with on all of her design endeavors…
Dawn is both a designer and artist who conceives, designs and creates luxury spaces, both residential and commercial, which ultimately enhances a lifestyle. From the initial sketch to the placement of the very last accessory, Dawn is involved in skillfully orchestrating every design regardless how simple or elaborate the project scope is.
Fostering a positive working relationship with her clients is paramount to Dawn throughout the duration of the interior design process. Dawn ensures a comfortable working environment by investing the time required to become well acquainted with each client’s personality, lifestyle, preferences, visions, and needs. This often requires time to create a rhythm and flow for successful execution at each step. By truly understanding that no two clients are alike, Dawn is able to infuse each client’s uniqueness into every element and detail of the design project. With impeccable attention to detail, flawless execution, and an insatiable passion to bring her design visions to life, Dawn continues to exceed her clients’ expectations with each completed project.
