INSPIRED BY NATURE
MAKER OF ONE-OF-A-KIND & RECLAIMED PIECES
Growing up in a small town just minutes outside of Waterloo, Ontario, I was raised with an appreciation and respect for the nature surrounding me. After renting cottages in Northern Ontario while raising our three kids, my husband and I purchased a cottage on Lake Manitouwabing.
After spending many years expressing my creativity through my professional career as a hairstylist, my passion for home decor expanded to something more than just a hobby.
Having always had a passion for interior design, I spent the next few years staging store fronts and doing seasonal decorating. After selling our cottage, I found myself looking to incorporate cottage inspired decor into our modern home. The start of White Birch Designs was influenced by my desire to put a modern rustic twist on cottage and home decor. As we became empty nesters, our love for Georgian Bay and the outdoors, and our appreciation for the unique qualities of small town living gave my husband and I the push we needed to make the move to Northern Ontario.
In the fall of 2017, we purchased a home on Otter Lake, just south of Parry Sound. The change of pace, and relaxing environment has given me the chance to enjoy my love of being creative while working alongside our lakefront.
Our one-of-a-kind cottage inspired pieces will remind you of being at the cottage all year round! Beautiful Maple Charcuterie boards, lemon & lime boards, pizza boards and Canoes!
What Our Customers Are Saying...
Kim’s canoes were so perfect for my HGTV design that I placed them front and centre on the coffee table. Not only is the finished product beautiful, but she was such a pleasure to work with and made the process super easy. I also used her Charcuterie board for the kitchen decor!
So happy to have stumbled upon a little slice of Lakeside Nautical Heaven! A lover of all things beachy….these paddles and canoes fit right into our decor!!! And why wouldn’t they, working directly with the artist herself she will customize exactly what you’re looking for….now that’s Beachside Service ~ treat yourself, you won’t be disappointed 🤍
Kim was amazing to deal with, friendly and personable, and was very responsive. I love my Hudson Bay inspired canoe, and change up the decor depending on the season. Her product is great quality, and I’ve had a lot of compliments. I live in Newfoundland so it’s nice to have a piece that reminds me of canoeing on the lakes in my home province of Ontario.
I own several pieces from White Birch Designs and have purchased pieces for gifts as well. I have always been impressed with not only the quality of the pieces that Kim creates but also with her creativity, attention to detail and ability to make such unique items! I always look forward to seeing what Kim will come up with next! You will never be disappointed in purchasing a White Birch design!
I first found out about White Birch Designs when one of Kim’s canoes was brought to our cottage as a gift. We loved having the canoe as our centerpiece so much that we bought canoes and serving boards for our family members for Christmas!! Can’t recommend White Birch Designs handcrafted pieces enough!
I was redecorating a spare room using my vintage HBC blanket as inspiration. When I saw the canoe online, I knew it would be the perfect piece of decor. The service and product were both excellent. Quality workmanship. Easy payment and delivery.
