Kimberley Boyd

Kimberley Boyd

comes to Novari Collective with an extensive background in sales and marketing. Her passion for design evolved after living through a full home renovation. One renovation became two, then three, and so on...and she slowly turned a hobby into a lucrative profession renovating and flipping homes. Joining the Staging Division was a perfect fit. 

A talented stylist, Kim is no rookie when it comes to design. Her natural ability to see the potential in any space was immediately apparent in her first  staging projects and Kim's devotion to customer satisfaction is second to none!  Since 2021 she has been busy staging up a storm and growing her list of happy clients. 

Kim's natural talent is reflected in the precision and detail she puts into each task and she is skilled at creating warm and inviting environments that will appeal to buyers.

Nathalie Enns

Nathalie Enns

stems from a longstanding career in the entertainment industry, as the owner of a dance studio and a highly regarded career in the arts (fun fact: she came in Top 6 on So You Think You Can Dance Canada!) but her true passion has always been in design. 

Nathalie first paired her love of styling interiors at the boutique store Liberty Design Inc. selling high end furniture, decor and offering in-home styling consultations for over four years. During this time, she successfully flipped two properties with her brand new hubby so she knows the hard work that goes in behind the scenes to create beautiful spaces.

In 2017 she took a leap of faith, closed her dance studio and became a Junior Stylist with a reputable Interior Design firm collaborating on dozens of projects and learning the tools of the trade.

Nathalie's years of experience and natural talent make her the perfect fit for our growing Design division and we can not imagine the Novari family without her. She looks forward to curating a space that pairs functionality and style tailor made just for you!

Kathryn Wood

Kathryn Wood

can't remember a time in her life that she wasn't passionate about creating harmony in her surroundings. Her career in the hotel and events industry took a pause when she started a family, which was just what she needed to really look at what made her happy. (besides her two little girls of course!)

This led her to pursue her dreams of working in the design industry, where she earned her diploma and worked on several large interior design projects before finding the perfect fit as a Property Stylist with Novari Collective back in 2021. 

Bringing her creativity and love of interiors together feels like it was meant to be and she could not be more delighted to be a part of the family.

(not pictured) Please say "hi" to the boys! 

Ben, Danny and Kyle take great pride in doing a job well done and understand the value in customer satisfaction.

Their main objective is to ensure that the revolving door of inventory flowing through the Novari warehouse is kept orderly and functioning. Our warehouse is a busy place and they all keep the chaos that can occur - with often daily multiple shipments - to an absolute minimum.

Our boys also provides assistance to our stylists on the road, delivering and packing up our many smaller projects that do not require a full truck. If you see any of them out driving the Novari van don't forget to give them a wave.
