Our History

swash

When Addie and her husband moved back to Winnipeg after a stint up North, Addie decided to take a course in Business Administration. One of the requirements in her subject was to research a small business. This is what sparked her idea on opening a decorating centre in the small town of Selkirk.

Since 1993, Addie’s World of Color has become a well established business serving Selkirk and surrounding areas from Winnipeg to the Interlake to the Beaches and beyond for over 24 years. Our focus is residential and commercial decorating.

Addie and her staff are professional, knowledgeable, focussed and friendly. We listen to our clients and integrate our experience with your wants, desires, and decorating dreams. We are constantly training, learning, and upgrading our knowledge to ensure the right solutions are found and decisions made.
People who come to Addie’s trust our recommendations and keep coming back. We have a steady and loyal clientele. Since we opened, our employees have decorated 3 generations of family homes. Our loyalty and commitment is to our clients.

If you have a vision you want brought to life, a design challenge or a decorating dream, come see us at Addie’s.
