Designers » Habitat Interiors

Habitat Interiors has been helping people create beautiful environments for over thirty years, integrating each client’s unique needs, personality and lifestyle.

We are honoured to have received many awards for excellence in interior design & renovation, including multiple Gold Tommie Awards from Canadian Home Builders Association in the Thompson Okanagan Housing Awards.

We have created more than twenty show homes in neighbourhoods throughout the Okanagan valley & have also been honoured to have been chosen to design two hospital charity Lottery Homes.
However, we truly feel the greatest gauge of success is that our clients continue to invite us back again & again & happily recommend us to their family & friends.

Our Story

Habitat Interiors was originally founded by Paulette Harte who worked in the design field her entire life, earning degrees in arts and design, she went on teach design at her university. Habitat Interiors was first opened in 1977 in Calgary, before the family ultimately moved to the beautiful Okanagan Valley in 1981, where Paulette worked as a well respected & award winning designer for over thirty years.

Growing up in the family business of design, Andrea Harte first studied fine arts at university and then continued her education, graduating with honours in her diploma in interior design. The mother & daughter team worked together side by side for over twenty years, before Andrea officially took over the business. Andrea has won multiple awards from the Canadian Home Builders Association & continues her creative enthusiasm for design.

The Habitat Interiors team also includes many highly qualified associates, including drapery seamstresses & installers, custom upholstery & wood furniture manufacturers, contractors, tile & hardwood installers, painters and many others. We have a team of experienced craftsmen at your service.
