The Simply Home Decorating Design Studio is located in the beautiful community of Deep Cove in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
I like to be at home when my daughter gets home from school each day so having an office that is close to home is of the utmost importance to me. When the opportunity came along to design and build an extension to our home and add a new legal suite that would become SHD headquarters, I was thrilled!
I worked with architect Matthew Hansen, also based in North Vancouver, to come up with a design that was completely integrated with the existing house. His design was all that I had dreamed of and more. Our home was transformed from a modest 1950's side split with a converted carport/garage to what looks like a brand new home with a two car garage and a legal bachelor apartment suite.
When it came to the interior, there was no question that I would spare no expense in making my new office exactly what I had always dreamed. I also had to keep in mind that one day, when I retire or my business outgrows the space, we may want to use it as rental apartment or in-law suite so the design had to be carefully crafted to suit both of these purposes.
The result is a fabulous creative space full of light that houses my successful design business and I couldn't be happier "working from home."
