In October we had a contest for the best before and after picture of anything design related. At the months end we knew exactly who our winner was going to be, Carole Loquet of La Caroleuse!
Carole’s tile story starts in Brittany, France. She was renovating an old house with her boyfriend and ended up doing some demolition on the bathroom. Throughout this process she discovered that she loved construction and tile, and wanted to learn the trade. From here, Carole went to a construction school in France and learned the art of tile setting. After a few years out of school in 2005 it was time to open her own company, La Caroleuse. Her business is founded on offering quality & custom installation to all her customers. After a while Carole and her boyfriend decided to move to Canada, and La Caroleuse came with her! Through communicating with Carole she told me she is still learning English but wrote her story from the heart. Carole is passionate about the work she does and we love highlighting people who love the work they do. She ended her story with this, and I couldn’t have said it better myself,
“Only one life, so better to do what we like, isn’t it? Nothing is simple, nothing is impossible.”
Congratulations Carole, your work and spirit are beautiful!
