The Decorator's Decorator
A Master of Details
How He Got Started
After working at several furniture, lifestyle and decorating stores in Brantford, David A. B. Bailey set out to start his own decorating business by word of mouth. Today, his business is established in the Victorian Village neighbourhood of St. George, Ontario, where clients are free to walk-in.
David has clients all over Ontario – from Buckhorn Bay to Windsor, Point Pelee to Tobermory, with many clients residing in the growing residential regions of London and Toronto.
Originally from the Brantford area, David has lived in both Toronto and Europe during his formal training. He has since returned to his rural roots, establishing his business in scenic St. George. Giving back to the community is something he holds near and dear.
