Last week, this letter from Jacqueline was sent out to our wonderful clients and friends. In case you are not on our formal mailing list, we wanted to include this on the blog for all of our treasured followers.

Dear Friends,

It has always been my greatest pleasure to design spaces for my incredible clients and to see those designs come to life.  I’ve been so lucky to work with talented craftspeople, amazing vendors and builders and architects that share my vision. I am so proud of the interiors that I have had a hand in and am so grateful for each experience. That is why it is with mixed emotions that I announce my difficult decision to leave Corea Sotropa Interior Design.

However, after 16 years I’m ready for a new challenge. I’ve realized that I have other goals and achievements I’d like to accomplish. But first, I’m planning on treating myself to a sabbatical which will include some travelling and spending more time with my husband and son. I’m also looking forward to making improvements on my own home and turning my enormous yard into the garden of my dreams. Then, I’ll see what the next chapter has in store for me. I’m really looking forward to the future and the possibilities it holds.

I have absolutely loved building this company from scratch and watching it grow into a leader among Calgary’s interior design industry.  Looking back I am so proud of the accomplishments of Corea Sotropa and can’t believe how much has been achieved.  I have had the honour of working alongside the best people and look forward to watching them continue forwards on the foundation I have helped to build. Corea Sotropa Interior Design will continue providing unparalleled design and service to our clientele under the leadership of Reena Sotropa. I have every confidence in her and the rest of the team and know you are all in good hands.

No doubt our paths will cross again in the future, and I look forward to that. Thank you all so much for the opportunities you have given me, your trust and your friendship.


Jacqueline Corea
