Sun Ah Brock

Founder & owner at LUX decor

Sun Ah is a passionate entrepreneur on a mission to build the most influential design community in North America.

She founded LUX decor in 2003 and scaled the business with the help of three things: her ability to bring together talented creative individuals, a strong work ethic and a constant drive to succeed.

LUX decor has gone on to do some incredible things. Our team has won Houzz awards for Service and Design for 6 consecutive years; we’ve won the 2019 Quebecois House of the Year Award and AIA Maine Award in 2023; we’ve been featured in publications including Canadian Home Trends, Maison et Demeure, and more; and we’ve grown our social media following to over 65,000 (and counting!)

In 2020, LUX decor experienced a make-over to become the epicentre of the Canadian design community. We launched a collaborative shared workspace where the country’s best designers and creatives could come together under one roof.

Our Team

Katrina Weary

Katrina Weary

Design Team Lead

Katrina began working for LUX decor in 2013 while studying Interior Design at Dawson College. On completion of her DEC, she joined the LUX decor design team full-time and has seen the completion of many beautiful transformations. Her goal is to create spaces that reflect her client’s unique personalities, all the while ensuring a stylish and functional space.

Waking up at dawn every Saturday morning and making homemade pancakes with her children creates a sense of home for her. She looks to incorporate the same feeling of homeliness in all her projects!

Melissa Torres

Melissa Torres

Lead Designer

After starting a degree in Art, Communication and Languages, Melissa realized that her passion lay in interior design and enrolled in an Interior Architecture school in Nice. Melissa has been working in the design industry for almost 14 years and her international background and extensive travel have allowed her to expand her design aesthetic.

Melissa appreciates the imperfections in her surroundings and takes the time to understand the stories they reveal. She was born in the south of France with Spanish roots, which may explain her love for the beach and the sun! Having arrived in Montreal over 10 years ago, Melissa has helped many LUX decor clients realize their dream homes, always to rave reviews.

 Tamara Wallace

With an extensive background in both residential and large-scale commercial projects, Tamara brings LUX decor a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective. She loves the planning process and her attention to detail is one of her greatest assets. In each project, she strives to find the balance between creativity and functionality.

When she is not working on projects at LUX, she enjoys the best that life has to offer: her family, her friends, and her gorgeous Labrador retriever, Griffin. Tamara feels her happiest when wrapped in a warm blanket with a cup of coffee on a weekend morning. For her, it’s the little things that create a sense of home.

 Cameron MacDonald

Cameron MacDonald

Designer

How did a background in horticulture lead to a passion for design and decor? Prior to joining the LUX decor team, Cameron managed a large nursery and decor shop for almost 10 years. This, coupled with his Bachelor of Arts in Urban Planning, transformed into a love of everything design related. Cameron loves spending time in the refuge of his garden at the end of a busy day, which is where he recharges and feels most at home. No wonder why he creates the most beautiful flower arrangements at client reveals!

When he isn’t designing, Cameron can be found working in his garden, or training for his next pole sport routine!

Gia Sarantidis

Gia Sarantidis

Designer

Gia’s love for renovation is what drew her to LUX. She grew up with her mother constantly changing the decor and moving things around, which is what sparked her interest for interior design. Gia enjoys a good moody design, and loves mixing different textures and natural stones. You’ll never find her without her best selection of pens, either on-site visiting a renovation project, or working alongside a pile of samples on her desk. 

On her time off, she enjoys travelling and going on long drives with her hubby and two kids visiting different neighborhoods to admire the architecture.

Niki Sarantidis

Niki Sarantidis

Design Associate

Gia was so great that we had to hire her sister, too! Niki fit in with the decor squad right from the get go. With a passion for interior design from young age, she has always walked into homes and right away pictured the changes she would do to it. Naturally, she found herself designing homes after completing her studies. Her design taste leans toward a California casual style with a love for earth ones, black and natural accents. Coming from a big Greek family, she knows how to create an overall warm and homey vibe in the home. 

On the weekends, you can usually find Niki spending quality time with family and friends, or indulging in a good movie. 

Maria Anthopoulos

Maria, of Greek and Egyptian background, was born and raised in Montreal. Maria has a unique talent for envisioning a space before production, for decorating and making any room come to life. There’s no doubt that she enjoys working on full service design consults with her trusty decor squad. She’s not only a Design Associate, but also LUX’s very own nurse and design mama. How could we be so lucky? 

Time spent in the comfort of her home with her soulmate, Peter, their three wonderful boys, and puppy Henry, is what makes her feel the most connected to her space. She has a keen understanding of the retail business, having spent over 8 years with Michael Kors. She developed her skills and love of design through her involvement in the development of investment properties with her husband. Her desire to continue to evolve led her to return to school to pursue a degree in Event Planning. During her studies, Maria led a team to fundraise over $10,000 dollars for the Autistic Children of Ste Justine Hospital.

Monique joined the Lux team in 2020 as Operations Manager bringing over 25 years of experience in Customer Service, Operations Management, and Accounting.

Monique finds pleasure in the simple things in life like listening to 80’s music, hanging in arenas watching her boys play hockey, and spending time with family and friends. For Monique, the beauty of home lies in the feeling she gets when baking with her children.

Although Monique is an exceptional team player, you will most often find her working diligently and quietly behind the scenes, exactly where she prefers to be. Monique has found a home away from home at LUX decor and is thrilled to be part of such a positive, supportive, and dynamic team.

You can usually find Lisa merchandising new arrivals in the showroom, or meeting with design members to help select and package items for a finishing service.

Home to Eric is a place where you can truly be yourself, without pretense.

It’s no surprise that Eric is studying acting. You can catch him on our latest IGTV giving us a tour of the office. Rest assured, he’s quite the comedian!

Marketing Intern

Starting off with an educational background in Health Sciences, Jayden quickly realized that was not the path for him… He wanted to explore a more creative field, which led him into the world of interior design, and to LUX! Since interning with us, he’s been a great help behind the lens styling photoshoots and making them picture perfect. 

Jayden loves plants, thrifting, and most of all loves his bird. When Jayden’s not working or at school, you can usually find him exploring Montreal, trying out new restaurants and discovering vintage boutiques.
