SMC Interior Design provides interior design services to homeowners, builders and architects in the Lower Mainland.

Whether you’re renovating an existing home or building a new one, we can help. We specialize in interior design for high-end, single-family home renovation and new construction through to furnishings. We also offer design services for vacation properties and for individuals in the process of downsizing.

“I’ve been a contractor for more than 20 years in Whistler and have worked with several designers over the years. Detailing and a good set of plans are sometimes hard to come by. I definitely rate Susan as one of the top designers I have worked with.”
- John McSkimming, John McSkimming Construction Ltd.

We get to know our clients

Most of our clients have an idea of the design they want to achieve in their homes. That’s why we get to know their styles, wants, and needs before starting any work. At SMC Interior Design, we also partner with architects and builders to help them meet their clients’ interior design needs, so they can focus on the construction process.

Good interior design can be incorporated at any stage of the architectural, building, or renovation process, but it’s always easier – and less expensive – to add an interior designer to your team at the start of a project.
