Based in Burnaby, BC. Canada, Kendall Ansell Interiors is a successful, award winning interior design agency with a straightforward design goal. We craft amazing and highly functional home and small office spaces by reflecting the very best version of you.
We understand that a well-designed space should continually delight its owner. To achieve this, we prefer to partner with our clients in order to truly understand their lifestyle needs before crafting a design solution. We understand that good design ideas are everywhere, though the key to truly great design lies in how a space elegantly interacts with the everyday lifestyle needs of our clients.
As the founder, Kendall’s unwavering passion for Interior Design began from a very early age. Kendall’s father, a general contractor, taught her about the fundamentals of house construction early on, resulting in Kendall bringing both technical and functional know-how to every creative decision with our clients.
When you work with us, we will step you through the creative process together, always keeping you informed and empowered at every phase of the project.
