About Us

  • “Our opportunity, as designers, is to learn how to handle the complexity, rather than shy away from it, and to realize that the big art of design is to make complicated things simple.”

    – Tim Parsey

Bryan is a third generation tradesman who’s earliest memories include working alongside his father, a painter. He is inspired by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, the vibrancy of Latin America, and the soaring, gothic arches of Western Europe. He believes that colour should be approachable. Nature is the perfect mirror– offering balance, contrast and contour in precise proportion. This is at the forefront of Bryan’s design aesthetic and he translates this into every project. He has spent his career marrying artistry and craftsmanship in both commercial and residential applications and holds a Fundamentals Certificate in Interior Design from Heritage School of Interior Design.

“Through the years I have come to understand my work as something more than a trade that I inherited from my father. I now view my work as an opportunity to come alongside my clients and turn their design dilemmas into homes and businesses that inspire and work for them.”
