Trisha would like to impress you with her many degrees in interior design and architecture, but she is from a completely different background. She was a true born designer who spent 15 years as an Investment Advisor, managing people's money. She found herself in the unique position, after retiring to have kids, of getting to do what she loved and was naturally good at.
"I've been so blessed to be able to do the projects I was given. No advertising - just word of mouth. The best training I've received has been experience. I've done commercial, restaurant, hotel and residential. I like it all. Each area has it's own rewards and also it's own challenges. I like to see a project through from beginning to end. It is so exciting to see the look on my clients' faces as things begin to transform."
Art. That's what it is. Places to live and enjoy. Why not? It's just better that way!

Sarah moved to the Okanagan in 2011 from Scotland with an honor's degree in Interior Architecture. Having the opportunity to work in an architect's office throughout her studies in Scotland gave her great insight and an early experience in the design industry. She also had the opportunity to travel to multiple European cities, which encouraged her love for historic buildings and the contemporary take on combining old and new design elements.
Sarah is passionate about all design aspects from fashion to furniture. She strives on capturing each client's unique taste. Sarah believes it is important to communicate and involve her clients' which therefore allows them to be as enthusaistic about their project as she is, throughout the design process.
Landscape & Exterior Designer
Shanti has always been fascinated by what makes a home beautiful. This, coupled with her love of the outdoors led her to landscape design where her learning began in the trenches. (Ok, in the field during university summer employment.) Amazed this was actually a job, she was hooked. She promptly changed education paths, partnered in a design build company, and put her passion to work.
Designing ever since has resulted in a wealth of ‘exterior’ experience. She has enjoyed the privilege of working on projects of all kinds including many of the valley’s most prestigious. Every time, the goal is to create beautiful, comfortable, well used spaces that simultaneously reflect the client’s qualities and the site’s context.
The connection between who we are, our home, our yard, and our community,- this is an amazing thing to illustrate.
