Jennifer Easton

Interior Designer

Jennifer is originally from Toronto Canada and relocated to Grand Cayman with her husband and young son in 2017. Although she was born and raised in Toronto, her parents were immigrants from the small European country of Portugal and came to Canada before she was born. Yearly family trips to Portugal are where her eye for luxury design and passion for all things beautiful began to grow. Her father was in the construction industry so she grew up visiting job sites as a young girl and fell in love with the building business as a result. She has worked in the interior design industry for over 15 years and completed 5 years of education with a degree in interior design from a top school in Toronto. Her career started out in corporate office design and then transitioned into the intense world of high rise residential development. After a 10 year career in the fast paced Toronto market she decided to open up her own interior design firm. Over the next few years while working with clients in the Dominican Republic she quickly determined that she wanted to leave the snow behind and relocate to an island to fulfill her dreams of working in the construction of luxury villas and vacation properties. Throughout Jennifer’s career she has continued to challenge herself with visionary designs, award winning design solutions and by establishing an exceptional reputation with her colleagues and clientele. Her passion for design that began at a young age is even stronger today as she continues to follow her dreams within this exciting and dynamic industry.
