My name is Tracey MacKenzie and this is the space where I share the things I make and the articles I write, as well as content that I create on Beauty, Food, Lifestyle and Wellness. I hope that you will enjoy your time here.
I have somehow been intertwined in the world of art, design and nature since my first trip to Hawaii when I was nine. It was love at first sight and I have never forgotten the raw beauty of the landscape and the people I met there. They were wild like the ocean, poetic and kind. This natural kind of flow and respect for nature has affected my life and my interior designs for as long as I can remember. So much so that I am now in the process of getting ready to launch my own magazine with a line of handmade products I have made that are inspired by nature. I look forward to sharing this with you.
I am an interior designer, artist, writer and more recently ceramist, whose work has been shown regularly on TV and in magazines. I am currently working as a contributor for the Luxury magazine called Living Luxe as well as running my interior design business and prepping for a private Art & Ceramics exhibit.
I have also worked on and off as the Editorial manager and regular contributor to the magazine conglomerate called Movato Home (now called At Home in Canada), which comprised the magazines Montreal Home, Maison Montreal, Toronto Home and Vancouver Home, for the last 10 years. See my most recent blog posts and articles here.
I have also been a Feng Shui practitioner and interior designer for 25 years and have regularly given lectures on how to make your home your sanctuary in Canada and in Bermuda. I have also studied the work of John Zeisel concerning the effects of Neuroscience & design on Alzheimers and Dementia and have helped advise various care-giving organisations in Montreal. I also became the first interior designer in Canada to apply many of the principles to my regular design projects as of 2010.
My Feng Shui and interior design work has been portrayed in the following publications: The Montreal Gazette, The National Post, The Suburban, Wall to Wall Magazine, At Home in Canada Magazine, Le Soleil, The Globe and Mail and the “Royal Gazette” in Bermuda. I also wrote a Feng Shui Column for At Home in Canada Magazine. See one of the articles on Feng Shui here.
I have appeared on the television shows; Citymag, Take One, Salut Beauté, C’est simple comme bonjour and the HGTV show called Buy Me.
I was also a regular contributor to the TV show called Feng Shui Life and shot an episode in Bermuda at the Fairmont Southampton Resort as well as at the Chateau Mont-Sainte-Anne in Quebec.
From 2016 – 2018 I created a magazine for the breast cancer charity called Pink in the city which was distributed at their annual ball. Pink in the City raised over $300,000 for the breast cancer center at the MUHC during those three years.

In 2023 – After spending the last 10 years studying various modalities; art, ceramics, woodworking, textiles, jewelry making and aromatherapy, in addition to my interior design work, I feel ready to create a line of handmade products for the home under the brand name Tracey M. This line will be launched in 2024 along with an accompanying magazine, which I cannot wait to share with you.
Lots of love!
