Marlie Waks creates a feminine space that reflects her magnetic personality with the help of her sister and Style at Home's design editor Jessica Waks.
Decorating with personality
Marlie Waks has the kind of magnetic personality – bright smile, infectious laugh – that attracts people like butterflies to summer blooms. Equally charming? Marlie’s design style, an eclectic mix of shabby chic and all-white rooms enlivened with pops of colour. “I’ve always loved white, but I grew up in a house with three sisters, three dogs and four cats, so it was never practical,” explains the Toronto leasing representative, who bought her first condo last year. “With my own home, I wanted to create a space that would really reflect who I am.”
