a few words about Creatif Design


Creatif Design Resource Inc. was opened 24 years ago after realizing a gap in the interior design & decorating market for good and affordable help.  Up to that time, I had already been designing and decorating friends' and family’s homes for years…just for fun!  The procedure was to design & decorate with their existing furnishings.  Extra purchases could be phased into the interior design process as desired.  In 1990, “working with what you own”, was a completely new concept in interior design & decorating.

During the last 18 years, residential & commercial renovations and commercial interior designs have been added to Creatif's interior design repertoire. This was a natural evolution.  When I was a child my father designed and built subdivisions where new families would often start their lives. I would accompany him to the various sites and to this day the smell of sawdust and paint still makes me happy. It has been my inspiration to create timeless beautiful environments that clients can come home to.  Years later, I discovered that my maternal grandmother was also an interior designer & decorator!

My career has allowed me to work and study interior design in diverse countries around the world, unique and exciting for sure.  Vancouver and environs however, is for me, the ultimate place to live and work.

I am looking forward to another exciting year of expansion and meeting wonderful new clients!  Creatif Design will be offering interior design consultations, room makeovers, home decorating, home staging, colour selection, kitchen and bathroom renovations, new home builds plus coaching for clients building new homes along with commercial interior design work of all descriptions.
