Hello ! I’m Zarina. The Founder. The Creative! And the overall passion behind Xeen Designs Interior Design Studio. 

Since childhood when all my siblings were busy studying hard, I was busy decorating the neighborhood houses. Growing up in multiple countries and moving around gave me insight to various cultures around the world. 

I gained knowledge and experience by working with acclaimed brand as Visual Stylist and decorated houses for Bollywood Celebs and businessmen while living in India. Then again I moved to Toronto, ON Canada to polish my skills. I graduated from George Brown College from Interior Design Technology in 2019. 

Just knowing that I get to live my passion while helping others and seeing their reaction when they fall in love with their home again gives me the strength to another day. 


When I’m not wearing one of my many day-time hats, I’m a regular mum to 2 wonderful children, wife to another entrepreneur (who is also my business partner), a traveler and a lover of all things nature inspired.

I believe every home should be a reflection of the people who live in it and I’m passionate about creating spaces that feel lived in and loved.

I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and help you realize your dream home.

Hi, I am Paras Thakur. The Co-Ordinator! I have many years of experience working with businesses from all kinds of industries and of all sizes.  From small startups to large international corporations.

I am primarily a numbers guy with a huge interest in home design and interior decorating. Having years of experience in construction industry with renowned builders back in India, I apply the basic principles and make it easy for others to thrive.

When I am not working, I spend my time with my children (the two naughty ones) and my beautiful entrepreneur wife, cooking new dishes, or creating new art!

I take pride in the level of co-ordination and work we put together to stage a house and make it successful for a client. Nothing makes me more happier than visiting a satisfied client and having a cup of Indian Chai!
