25 years of Excellence in Local and International Design


Twenty-five years ago, I decided to shift my career from wild life technician to interior designer. After a year of formal training through the New York School of Interior Design, I worked for several years in an established design studio in Victoria British Columbia before setting up my own practice.

Still based in Victoria, I became the principal interior designer for Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort and Villas on Long Island in the Bahamas. That work continued for 14 years during which I moved to Whistler, where I established a busy and successful practice and design store.

My work in the Bahamas and Whistler led to an international clientele. I returned to Vancouver Island in 2005 and from my studio in Cobblehill I work for local and off-shore clients on the Island, at Whistler and in the Bahamas.

Over my 25 years as an interior designer I have developed a specialty in new construction and renovation of luxury homes, boutique resorts and building projects.



Low key, High style, Cost effective


I seek to create a sense of place and comfort for my clients at a reasonable cost and within a reasonable time frame.

This involves a specialized approach that recognizes the uniqueness of each client.I get to know my clients  - their needs and expectations.

I work with a range of styles from traditional to contemporary, reflecting my clients’ personal style and possessions.

I bring my awareness of the local environment – be it urban, coastal, mountain or tropical - into the design.

I keep up-to-date with current trends and sources of new and innovative design products.

 Tricia did the  tropical  furniture package  for our villa  at Cape Santa Maria in the Bahamas.  I loved everything  ,I love going there. She looked after all the logistic of  furnishing a luxury home on a remote island. We didn't have to worry about a thing and lost of fun!
