Who we are:
Leclair Decor is an Ottawa-based interior decorating firm founded and co-owned by husband and wife team Sacha and Melissa Leclair. After love and marriage -but slightly before the baby carriage- we bought our first house and got to work revamping it from top to bottom. Through the process of working together to transform our house into a home, we fell in love again – this time with the art of decorating interior spaces. After sharing photos of our progress and final product online, we immediately received requests from friends and acquaintances to guide them in revitalizing their own condos and houses. Voila! Leclair Decor was born.
What we do:
Our specialties are project management, home decorating, and design consulting, which are provided to our clients through one-time consultations or more comprehensive project management services. Our clients are vibrant homeowners who want to create a beautiful space or home that looks both stylish and cozy. We love to mix finishes and styles to create truly personal spaces for our clients. Guiding our clients on where to spend and where to save is one of our fortes.
What sets us apart:
We absolutely love what we do! Nothing brings us greater satisfaction than the moment we get to reveal a newly beautified space to our clients. From the moment we sit down with a new client to the final day of installation, we’re excited about the project and work hard to share that excitement through strong communication and collaboration with the homeowner. We are young, energetic, outgoing and make a point of combining emerging trends with classic design principles to create beautiful, modern spaces.

Sacha is our creative powerhouse. With a background in graphic design and marketing, he always brings a contemporary edge to clients looking for something unique but timeless. He is an avid amateur photographer when not spending time with his two main loves: the business and the family. He also loves to hike and ski, and his appreciation for the outdoors is often apparent in his design.
Designer / Decorator / Project Manager
With a background in the arts and program development, Grace is equal parts creative and organized. As a decorator, this translates to an intuitive sense of style and impressive attention to detail; clients appreciate her strong communication skills and adaptability. She is fascinated by how people live, and loves to travel and play outside. The perfect room: “inspires and comforts at the same time. It looks like a haute couture gown but feels like flannel pyjamas.”
Designer / Decorator
Marcela is an interior decorator and industrial designer. Her technical skills in modelling and rendering have allowed us to bring our team’s ideas to life and given our clients further understanding and trust in our vision before a project has even started. Seeing clients’ happy responses to completed projects is one of the things Marcela enjoys most about the job. In her free time, she enjoys travelling to new countries where she’s able to take inspiration from people and cultures around the world.
