Meet
J&J

Jonathan Mann and Julia Tuitt-Mann are a husband and wife interior design team.

With a background in creative arts, music and interior design, we offer our combined knowledge, expertise, sense of style and excellence to you, always.

We love people. We believe that each person has their own story, their own style and their own way of living. We believe that each space deserves attention to detail and should tell one’s unique story.

The J&J Story

We LOVE love!”

J&J first met at the age of 7 at church, and grew up being best friends.

“We can remember giggling together as kids, and always having such a great time – it was as if time stopped each moment we were together!”

As years went by, their friendship continued to blossom and by the age of 18, J&J fell in love… within a few short years of dating, they tied the knot!

“We always dreamed of working together” 

After a few years of Julia starting her business in interior design and Jonathan working in the creative arts, Jonathan and Julia partnered together in 2014 and launched J&J Interiors. They have had an incredible journey and have designed for clients in Montreal, Toronto, Florida, Paris and the Côte D’Azur.

“We are passionate about interior design, and would be honoured to meet with you to start planning your next design project!”

What's it like to work with your spouse?

“It’s definitely not all couples who can work together so harmoniously, but somehow, we thrive together when it comes to brainstorming, creating & working hard! We are both driven by the pursuit of excellence and we have this ability to bring beautiful designs to life! We are super invigorated by the aspect of design and serving each client with care! We love knowing that our clients are enjoying life a little bit more, because we were able to tailor make their space to their taste and their lifestyle! Being married and sharing in the joy of our own home, we know how special it is to live in a home that is beautiful, comfortable, unique…a place you’re proud of!”

– J & J

Do you prefer residential or commercial design?

“We often get asked this question, and the fact is, we actually enjoy the thrill of both residential and commercial design equally…it’s almost like asking a Hollywood star if they prefer acting on the big screen or on Broadway…both are awesome and unique! There are of course elements of both residential and commercial design that we look forward to, for instance, we love the personable aspect to residential design, getting to know the client and catering to their specific tastes and needs and guiding them through the process! It’s always fun to show clients new concepts and design tricks that they wouldn’t necessarily explore or think of on their own! On the other hand, we love the thrill of the fast pace at which commercial design projects tend to roll and the opportunity to explore new design elements on a larger scale! Commercial design is also invigorating to us, as our creative mindset is not only geared towards designing for an individual, a couple or a family, but rather, creating something unique, and appealing, all the while, catering to high traffic and a varied clientele.”

– J & J

What are some of your individual strengths/qualities in your work?

“We share a very natural chemistry as a couple and as working partners! When it comes to the design process, it’s as if we automatically get into the creative zone of who does what…”

– J & J

“Julia is a colour specialist. She has a definite gift for selecting paint colours and fabrics that blend seamlessly into each space! She’s not afraid of mixing colours and patterns in a unique way, clients love this about her! She is also very detail oriented, so whether we’re working on a lighting plan, a floor plan, a custom built-in or custom furniture etc., she brings a real fitness to each element of our designs!”

– J O N A T H A N

“Jonathan has a keen eye for balance, timeless design and for space planning. He is very gifted when it comes to conceptualizing overall designs. He is a gifted operations manager and is often busy coordinating and checking in on progress on-site! He is always quick to find solutions and keeps things running smoothly! He truly is my hero!”
