We’ve Done it Again… Meet our Newest Team Member!

Well, we’ve done it again — we swooped up another talented lady for our team! Guilty as charged. 😉

Allow me to introduce… Laurie!

NAME: Laurie Bratt

LBI ROLE: Intermediate Senior Designer

Laurie’s diverse background and sunny personality immediately got our attention. Originally from Brooks in Alberta, Laurie crossed the pond to study International Business at Schiller University in Madrid, Spain. 

After returning to Canada and working in the building industry for several years with her husband, she caught the design bug — and began studying interior design at the Academy of Design in Ontario. 

Before she knew it, she was working in commercial interior design yet dreaming of residential… which brought her to our doorstep! 

We couldn’t be more grateful to add Laurie’s expertise and design and business background to our team. After all, a design project involves more than an eye for what looks good — it takes management, organization, number crunching and more. And she’s got it. 😉

But let’s hear from the woman of the hour herself…

Q&A WITH INTERMEDIATE SENIOR DESIGNER, LAURIE BRATT

My favorite part of design is… 
the ability to change the lives of our clients through design, adapting the space to create cohesive and aesthetically pleasing environments which completely changes the feeling and mood of a space

I believe that successful design…
is created through experience, open communication and close attention to detail

People say I’m…  
an outgoing and determined individual person with a love of conversation

I cannot live without… 
a good book on my bedside table, especially when it’s a juicy crime novel

I love… 
traveling to off-the-beaten-path spots, discovering how the locals live, and experiencing how they interact with their environment

Someday I would love to… 
road trip through Argentina with my husband Vaughn in a funky VW van

Welcome to the team, Laurie! We are so happy you’re here and can’t wait to change people’s homes and lives together.

And to you, my lovely reader, I can’t wait to show you more of what we do and inspire you to live your best life — inside your home and out of it. 😉

  • One question I hear frequently is, “Can my project be completed by a specific date?”⠀
⠀
Well we aim to please!💛 We love  generous, realistic timeframes, as this allows us to provide the best results both aesthetically and budget wise. ⠀
We make and execute plans quickly. We take care of all the details, and we use tried-and-true trades, suppliers & methods.⠀
⠀
It's best to call us as early as possible to make sure we can complete a project on time for you, but there are many elements on a project out of our control. We can always discuss what has to give to hit a tight timeline.⏱ ⠀

  • As an interior designer I am a huge fan of CAD (Computer Aided Design) ever wonder what makes the difference?⠀
⠀
..... Well grab your coffee and let me tell you! ☕️ ⠀
⠀
1. COMMUNICATION - Our schematics tell our contractors and trades exactly what to do. Our drawing sets include everything from lighting locations, millwork design, tile layouts, to locations of new partitions. ⠀
⠀
2. THE DETAILS - The difference between good design and great design is in the details. Our drawings always include construction details to deal with tricky on-site conditions. CAD allows us to clearly communicate those details to our clients and trades.⠀
⠀
3. COST SAVINGS: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Mistakes in the construction phase can be very costly so getting everything right at the onset can save you huge. Invest in a good set of drawings to ensure everyone is on the same page and things are executed exactly the way you envision.⠀
⠀
While designing offers a time for creativity and inspiration the execution of theses plans needs strategy. We hope this inspires you to use a design professional, and get the drawings you need, for your next project!⠀

  • How to design an kitchen that makes your life easier?⠀
⠀
My team and I designed a kitchen for a large family with a penchant for entertaining — and nearly every design decision we made catered precisely to their needs. As I wrote that post for you, it got me thinking: Wouldn’t you like to know how we design spaces that work hard for you? 💭 ⠀
⠀
In the design world, form follows function — we can’t design a great space until we know exactly what you need it to do for you.⠀
Head over to our latest post to see the first 5 questions we ask before designing your dream kitchen. 👩‍🍳 ⠀
