Owner Spotlight: Lesley Wong
I’m Lesley Wong, proud owner of Lesley Wong Interiors.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
I grew up in Scotland but immigrated to Canada when I was young. I went to school in Huntsville, Ontario.
Interior design and decorating have been my passion since I was a little girl. I've always been drawn to beautiful and creative spaces. People laugh when I tell them my favorite memory was making furniture for my Barbie dolls.
Four years ago, I made it my goal to launch my company to take all that I've learned and share it with clients. I'm in business because I love design and want to give clients the opportunity to love their space. We all see wonderful homes on TV and magazines and want the same. With creative flair and resourcefulness, we can bring a space to life.
On average, I work in the office for eight hours, but I'm always looking, researching and creating even outside the nine-to-five schedule.
The day starts with a review of each project. I want to keep on top of all developments and communicate these with my clients. This open discussion makes for a transparent process.
I love each opportunity to meet new clients. I learn what they want and need for their space. We talk about plans and dreams, and the excitement builds as we get creative about possibilities.
As a business owner and designer, there are so many decisions to make. Each day is different, with its own set of challenges. I feel accomplished when I've found a solution that goes beyond the expected.
Interacting with clients is my favorite part of the job. The reactions to the completed spaces make it all worthwhile.
Besides my own business, I always gravitate toward other small business owners who work hard and experience the highs and lows. I relate to this and admire determination and commitment. I do my best to support the small business owners of my community.
I attribute my success to my desire to please and a good work ethic. However, the support of my family and friends is where my strength lies. I'm a family-oriented person, so when not working, I love to entertain in my home.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
