When I first moved to St Catharines in early 2017, I noticed a sweet little hole-in-the-wall store right next to the Farmers Market with a “For Lease” sign hanging in the window. The bare white wooden interior was just begging for something hip to happen there.
Thankfully, Interior Design Consultant, Heather Rusk, saw the same opportunity and has transformed the space into an eclectic interiors and gift store called Everlove Design.
There is something gorgeous here for most interior tastes from cottage-style coziness to minimalist modern. You will find a mix of products by local artists and makers, as well as discoveries from Canada and around the world.
If you find choosing a “design style” a little overwhelming, or just can’t land on a colour scheme to suit your home, you are in the right hands here. Heather has spent much of her career so far staging homes for sale, and has relished renovating and decorating her own investment properties.
She says her passion is finding design solutions for a space, and opening Everlove felt like a logical next step. She also hopes to expand into in-home personal design consultations soon.
“I am already enjoying answering customer’s design and decor questions when they come in,” Heather said. “I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to blend all of my passions at Everlove and share them with our awesome community.”
Heather, a “born and raised Niagara girl” has lived in central St Catharines for most of her life. Now, after a couple of years in Fonthill, she has been drawn back to the city and loves living downtown.
“Downtown St Catharines is transforming into a vibrant centre with a beautiful mix of people of all ages who either work here or enjoy coming downtown to take in the growing food, sports and cultural experiences that it has to offer,” she said.
“There is a renewed feeling of optimism here that is inspiring.”
