Designer Beatrice Tokayer grew up in Montreal, Canada and currently lives in Englewood, New Jersey with her husband and three boys. She considers herself a lifelong learner and speaks English, Spanish, French and Hebrew fluently.
She graduated from McGill University with a BSc in Psychology and quickly realized her true passion in interior design. She completed her Interior Design studies at the Institute of Art and Design in New York, along with a separate certificate in AutoCad and Sketchup, as well as color psychology and sensory integration.
She knew something wasn’t right with her family when her middle son wasn’t hitting the age-appropriate milestones on time. She had the innate sense many mothers do when something’s off and you can’t quite put your finger on what.
Her son wasn’t sleeping well, had too much energy without an outlet for it all, and was struggling socially and academically. Soon after, he was diagnosed with ADHD and sensory processing disorder, and Beatrice knew she needed to take extra steps to help him thrive with his unique needs. She began researching and collaborating with his child study team to gather more information about what would make him feel more at ease at home and in his bedroom. She discovered the world of sensory design and set about to tailor an environment in which her son could thrive.
Her own son’s sensory needs fueled her curiosity and passion for designing spaces that help children live happier, calmer and more balanced lives.
Seeing a greater need for sensory interior design, Beatrice has made it her mission to help others create environments that allow every individual to express their true selves as she delivers on the utmost of comfort and functionality.
