I’ve always been enamored with good design. Whether I’m driving with my family or walking my dog, if I happen to see a home on my journey with a welcoming entrance, beautiful garden, or stylish porch, I'm hooked, dreaming about my next project and filing away the special details. In my own home, nothing is quite so fulfilling as making simple, quick updates in a room - relocating art, adding new throw pillows to the family room, or a simple shift of furniture. I love that good design can transform an out-of-the-box room into a space that’s infused with color, style and personality.
I've been fortunate to be surrounded by inspiring design for most of my career, including my role as Publisher of Canadian House & Home Magazine, and Vice President New Business, at an International marketing agency where I managed a creative team. For the past 13 years, I’ve owned and operated Plum Gift Co., a bespoke gift company that creates and manages custom gift programs for a variety of blue-chip clients. Plum has been fortunate to receive great reviews over the years, including the Globe & Mail which following our launch in 2007 reported “ Plum Gift Co. offers a refreshing new alternative... perfect for the holidays. Formerly of House and Home magazine, Toronto-based founder Jennifer McLean's ideas are as practical as they are pleasing".
