Melissa Davis

Farm girl, urbanite, eternal optimist and interior designer, Melissa is a creator of spectacular spaces, and all that is required for existing within them. With more than 15 years’ experience in design, architecture and construction Melissa wears many hats. 

Partner at  Catherine + Davis Interior Design, her work regularly graces the pages of  top decor publications. Melissa is Art Department Head, and Series Designer on the Award-winning television series Income Property (airing in more than 40 countries worldwide) on HGTV and DIY networks.  Melissa is also a founding partner at Part-Time Utopian, a product design firm,  and Grain Floors. Melissa can also be seen as a regular guest on The Marilyn Denis Show, and CHCH

Juan Antonio Fontina

Artistic talent, and technical skill come together when Juan Antonio Fontina takes on a renovation. Torn between art and engineering, Juan has found a way to weave his love of all things aesthetic and technical into a successful career as a contractor.

After three years of graphic design school, it became clear to Juan that his interests lay elsewhere. After acting as an engineering manager, Juan’s side jobs soon became his passion.  Whether it was painting, installing siding, or renovating a kitchen, Juan had a knack for making old spaces new and beautiful. In Juan’s early career, he partnered with a friend to flip a house, and after that home, he took the plunge into full time renovations and never looked back.

Sandra Pella

Need some advice about perennials, pruning, spring gardening, shrubs, weeds, or simply some old fashioned practical gardening advice?  Sandra Pella has got you covered. A past Canada Blooms presenter, and frequent media go-to, Sandra handles the toughest gardening topics with ease and humour.

Sandra had an unusual start to her career, she did not study Horticulture or Botany, but rather graduated with a BA, Political Science from the University of Western Ontario.  Beginning her career in the financial sector, Sandra has held the position of Head Gardener for the Toronto Botanical Garden since 2008.
