There's nothing better than a happy client at the end of a project!


Ana was referred to us by a friend and she absolutely did not disappoint! From our very first meeting, Ana's focus was to understand our needs and to offer a customized design that is a reflection of us and our family's needs. She is very easy to deal with, offers practical solutions and is very open and comfortable in receiving our feedback and suggestions. Ana delivered in managing our renovation from start to finish. She is trustworthy and dependable and went above and beyond in sourcing, managing the work and addressing any challenges. I would absolutely work with Ana again!

Ana was fantastic. She really listened and understood what we were trying to accomplish. She really brought the room to life and we are more than pleased with the results. We were able to keep the pieces we loved, while bringing in other pieces to tie the whole room together. She gave us lots of options and when we weren't sure about something, she came up with other alternatives until we were happy.  She made the whole process easy as we didn't have a lot of time. I would absolutely recommend her!

Ana Castanheira was a pleasure to work with. She is a very talented lady who listened to my thoughts and incorporated them with her design talent to create a great room. She was always available by email and phone and on time with our appointments.

Our initial contractor suggested Second Wind Interior Design services to design the bathroom and kitchen because we were completely renovating our home. Because we were so impressed with the work she had completed in the kitchen and bath areas we trusted her to aid in design of the remainder of the house, including furnishings, artwork, etc. Ana has been with us during our home renovations from start to finish and we could not be happier with her service. Our home looks amazing!

My small Arts & Crafts house was nearing its 100th birthday, and it looked tired. There was nothing specifically wrong with it; but taken all together, the colours, the wallpaper, the windows, the carpet created an effect that was cramped and dim. Then Ana worked her magic. While respecting every cherished architectural feature, such as the fine old woodwork, the stained glass windows and the living room’s timbered ceiling, she made my home fresh and new. For Ana’s clarity of vision and her professionalism in choosing the right craftsmen and in overseeing the work, I could not give higher praise.

We have had an extremely positive experience with Ana of Second Wind Interior Design. We were overwhelmed with the large scope of our main level reno once we expanded the project from a kitchen re-design. Ana was patient and she really listened and took the time to get to know our tastes and need for good function. She is very personable and worked collaboratively with our contractor; she was very skilled at keeping us focused on the priority of the moment. Ana was always timely in responding to our many questions and we felt her expert guidance ensured we achieved the end result we were looking for. Ana kept reminding us she wanted us to love our new space...and we do!! We would recommend her in a heartbeat!
