Our Story

Expertise & Transparency

URBAN THEORY

TASTEMAKERS        PROBLEM-SOLVERS        PEOPLE-READERS

 

We are the narrators of personality, core values, and unique lifestyles – our stories are displayed in the collection of spaces we’ve conceived for the vast range of clients we’ve partnered with since launching in 2003. Our team has been involved in hundreds of residential/commercial projects spanning across Canada’s Western Provinces, including everything from straight-forward decorating and remodeling projects, to full-service luxury new builds and complex renovations.

 

OUR EXPERTISE

In addition to full-service work, over the years we’ve become uniquely experienced in assisting numerous out-of-town & province clients with their new builds and renovations – making us an authority on project execution for clients living abroad. Project coordination, trades management, design deliverables, furnishing installations, full home styling… we are your eyes and ears on the ground from start to finish, pouring the wine and handing you the keys when you finally arrive in town.

 

Our team embodies a distinct flavor and dynamic with each new project, while our foundations are always built around integrity and transparency.  We work with clients just like you; hardworking, busy individuals and companies who value their time and financial investment – individuals seeking an overall personalized experience who want to be sure they’re making wise and sound financial design decisions.

We are on a mission to share fantastically chic and organically designed spaces with the world; perhaps your space will be next!
