Toni Johnston   Toni Johnston

Allied Member ASID

Toni Johnston grew up in Munster, Indiana on the outskirts of Chicago, in a traditional Greek family that loved gatherings, cooking, and entertaining. She grew up appreciating the comforting feeling of a beautiful home bustling with activity. A natural artist, Toni attended Indiana University and graduated from Indiana State University receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design with a minor in Fine Art.

Once out of college Toni worked with several design firms and retailers. While working for Ethan Allen she was recognized nationally for her talent as the recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award. The Circle of Excellence is a prestigious award presented to the top twelve designers across the nation based on their interior design skills.

In 1997, Toni left Ethan Allen to join her husband in their interior design business. While co-running her own design group she kept busy as an instructor at Moorpark College where she taught Basic Interior Design, Materials & Installation of Interior Architecture, Window Treatment Design, Faux Painting and Hand Painting on Silk.

Over the years, she realized she needed more options in art for the home and she chose to create her own paintings both for herself and her clients. Toni’s paintings are unique in that they relate to the space and style of your home; she creates an affinity between the painting and the home interior that’s not found in all artwork. Her hope is that you will feel the same passion for her artwork that she does and that it will bring a sense of serenity and completion to your home.

Toni specializes in custom design for new home construction with an emphasis in gourmet kitchen and high-end bath design.
