Maria Carreón – B.I.D – Principal

“Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.” –Charles Eames

Very early, Maria discovered her passion for interior design and the thrill that comes with creating exceptional, thoughtful spaces that fulfil the needs and wants of her clients. With every project, Maria digs deep to meet that challenge. Her collaborative nature, humility, and ability to listen make her a highly sought-after design professional.


Kwantlen University College, Richmond, BC (2007, Bachelor of Interior Design)
Langara College, Vancouver, BC (2003, Diploma in Display and Design)

Heather Cousins – D.I.D – Principal

“If you love something, it will work—that’s the only real rule.”

Heather believes every space should tell a story and act as a culmination of what a client needs, wants, or loves. She is highly creative and works hard to make sure her clients are happy, involved, and at ease during the entire design process. With every project, she is passionate about designing for real life—to support how people really live and how they occupy their spaces. What a client needs is not necessarily what they ask for, and it’s up to her to know the difference.

Heather has been designing for over 10 years and is an active member of IDIBC (The Interior Designers Institute of British Columbia).


Georgian College, Barrie Ontario          (2004 Diploma in Interior Design)

Krystina Lutsenko – D.I.D – Junior Designer

“Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.”
-Dieter Rams

Krystina loves the balance between functionality, practicality and creativity and ensures a design that well serves its purpose. She believes that the objective of every project is to illustrate a design that portrays the clients’ vision, while incorporating current and innovative solutions.

Her passion is the driving force that provides her with the means to truly complete each project with eagerness and ambition.
