About Darlene Janeiro

When Darlene left her stable and increasingly successful career as a civil servant, she embraced a path of entrepreneurship fuelled by her passion for design and creating beautiful spaces … and never looked back.

Fast-forward 16 years and Darlene Janeiro, Principal of Darlene Janeiro Design, has charted her own unique course founding both an award-winning design studio and a bespoke, one-of-a-kind retail shop—all from her coveted downtown Oakville location.

From a one-woman décor/furnishings showroom business based out of her home, to a mid-size nimble design firm successfully executing the full gamut of residential, commercial and hospitality projects, Darlene is a consummate professional known for her breadth of knowledge in the industry and her natural propensity for consistently cultivating meaningful and authentic relationships. The outcome? Darlene Janeiro Design is synonymous with offering seamless white-glove service, ensuring all clients’ needs are heard and heeded to—that means delivering standout spaces that elevate yet reflect the client’s wish list and vision.

Whether she is selecting artful pieces for the store or sourcing the furnishings and finishes for a custom home, Darlene delivers both style and substance in everything she does. With sustainability at the forefront of her business, she handpicks tradespeople with the same mindset and only works with brands that uphold eco-conscious practices. An advocate for giving back and sharing her generosity of spirit with fellow entrepreneurs who dare to dream like she did, that passion for design she reports has grown even stronger from when she first struck out on her own and ventured into the unknown.

The world of design is her happy place and while creating "Elegant.Bold.Stunning" spaces, she makes it her mission to take care of the planet we all call home.

Join us in extending a warm welcome to Darlene as she brings her unique blend of experiences and insights to our board!
