Simple Sugar was founded by designers, Gizelle and Mike Vautour, once high school sweethearts, now husband and wife team. When designing their eldest son’s nursery, they knew they wanted a modern, personalized piece. However, with a non-traditional spelling of their son’s name, it was impossible to find. The nursery walls went bare for one whole year. Gizelle, having grown up with a non-traditional spelling as well, remembered the same difficulty finding personalized items as a child. So, with their son’s love of the alphabet, and their professional design skills, they created the Personalized Alphabet Initial™ print!
In March of 2013, they launched Simple Sugar Design, offering personalized wall decor for the home. They quickly gained popularity, and their designs have been featured on various morning shows such as Breakfast Television and CHCH Morning Live, as well as, a Levana spot. After several years of passion and hard work, Simple Sugar blossomed into what you see today!
Proudly Canadian, every art piece is handcrafted with love, from start to finish, right here in Canada!
Gizelle and Mike live in the beautiful Niagara region with their two boys and two goldendoodles.
