Our spa bathrooms and chef kitchens have been featured in multiple magazine articles, including Dwell, House & Home, Style at Home and Toronto Home. Our integrated studio covers every size job, from bathroom and kitchen renovation to complete design-build—from construction through to interior fixtures, finishes and furnishings. Specializing in luxury, west-coast modern, our portfolio reaches across North America.
Over the course of her three-decade career, Juli has applied her signature west-coast modern style to dramatically transform some of Vancouver’s most iconoclastically mid-century houses. Operating with a design execution that’s uniquely hers, she helped define the modern, pop-retro ethos of the Aritzia and Blue Ruby chains. Her work has earned critical recognition from Vancouver magazine, Canadian House and Home, the Vancouver Sun, Toronto Home, Style at Home, Canadian Living, among others. Kelly Deck noted her “outstanding courage with materials and colour” while renowned architect Jeremy Sturgess described her approach as “lyrical and progressive—based on invention and a serious embrace of client context.”
