Jamie and her team did a wonderful job transforming our new apartment into a space we love. After downsizing by half, we were daunted by the prospect of making the space functional AND beautiful. We achieved that and had a lot of fun in the process.

We could not have done our renovation without SHIFT INTERIORS! They have inspired us, guided us, and taken the project on as if it was their own home. Their design presentations have given us great ideas and we have been grateful to see how hands on they have been. They have remained focused on keeping within our budget but have given us new options along the way. SHIFT has taken care of soo many of the details (things we would not have even thought about). I cant imagine taking on such a project without them!

Project: IDS West – Benjamin Moore Booth

“Benjamin Moore worked with Shift Interiors to put together a beautiful booth space at IDS West 2015. Jamie and her team delivered everything they promised and more. From the start of the project, they were personable and professional. They were clear in their communication styles, listened to our vision and needs, and set and stuck to manageable deadlines. They remained attentive to detail, not allowing any facet of our project to go without thought.
I highly recommend Shift Interiors. You’ll find the team is: nimble —quickly providing alternate options if “Plan A” is disrupted; hard-working —handling endless logistical details with grace and ease; well-connected —working with great local resources and vendors; and finally, authentic —remaining committed to Shift’s vision of helping clients enhance their spaces through positive energy and subtle nods to nature.”

Project: New West Home

We hired Shift Interiors for their expertise in making small spaces function like larger ones, in addition to their decor and design services. We completed an extensive structural and design renovation project with them that included all new furniture and decor. The results exceeded our expectations and we would recommend them again.

Project: False Creek Condo
Jamie Deck has been an absolute joy to work with from Day one. She guided me through the process of designing our new 1200 square foot Condo in Vancouver with grace, wisdom, and a clarity that a newbie like myself was BEYOND grateful for. The best part is that she truly cares about her clients and about helping them to create a home that is “them”. I have been recommending her to everyone who will listen :)

Project: West 21st Home

We hired Jamie Deck, once the principal at After Design (soon to be rebranded Shift Interiors) in May of 2013 and completed our project in December 2014. We gutted and renovated the 1994 ‘Pink Palace’ 5 bedroom residential home we had acquired for our quickly growing family.My husband had worked with Jamie briefly once before so brought her name forward for our project. The renovation included a full redo of our kitchen and entire main floor, all bathrooms, bedrooms and a portion of our basement. Jamie and her team developed the layout, completed the drawings, selected and sourced materials and finishes (inclusive of decorative lighting) and completed all spec packages.Overall Jamie and her team were a pleasure to work with. Jamie has that rare combination of creativity, practicality, and efficiency. She worked with is as our partner to understand what we envisioned and then build on that, bringing entirely new and interesting ideas to the table. In the execution phase of the project, her insight and expertise were invaluable. I don’t know what we would have done without her.What is unique with Jamie is the approach she takes in terms of really understanding what we wanted to accomplish and then truly partnering with us to make it happen without forcing her own agenda. She was highly professional, organized, reliable and personable.

Project Price: $1,000-$9,999

We purchased a home built in 1912 and loved the charm, but weren’t as keen on the most recent renovation done in the 80’s. With a modest design budget we wanted to tackle as many of the projects ourselves as we could but knew that we would need someone with a keen eye to help point us in the right direction and make the most of our dollars.Jamie stepped in and immediately at put us both at ease. We had spent hours trying to decide what color to paint our eldest son’s room and were feeling overwhelmed at the idea of painting the rest of the house. Within an hour, she made recommendations on the entire house including accent walls taking into account all of the renovation decisions we had already made. We painted the house almost immediately and could not be happier with the results.Jamie has spent time with our family and gotten to know how we live allowing her to make informed recommendations on layout, organization and design. Since we have been working with her hourly, it has allowed us to make changes on a timeline we are comfortable with and has enabled us to manage our budget most effectively.We have really appreciated Jamie’s skill and experience throughout the design and layout of our home and look forward to continuing our work with her.

As a builder we have worked with a number of interior designers and After Design is by far and away the easiest to work with. Jamie’s attention to detail and adaptability are phenomenal – she truly goes the extra mile to ensure the finished product is achieved. Top notch in all aspects. Guy Taylor – Averra Developments

The After Design team helped us with a large renovation that transformed a newly purchased home into an amazing space for our young family and that truly reflected our tastes. They were heavily involved with the renovation process and added creative and design advice to all aspects of the renovation. In addition, they helped us design custom furniture that complemented the overall design and were highly functional for our children.

Our graphic design studio was so fortunate to work with Jamie Deck on a couple projects which included the re-structuring/interior design of our loft studio along with a successful launch of curated lifestyle videos promoting the mixed-use of condo living for a real-estate development project. Jamie has that fine balance of professionalism with ease. She arrived at every meeting well-equipped for the agenda, came up with solutions or alternatives, and had timely follow-through for everything that needed to be done. What was most enjoyable working with someone like Jamie was it felt like a talented friend looking out for you and your project the whole way through.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jamie and her team for several projects now. Ive worked with many designers in my 20+ years of construction and I can honestly say working with After Design has superseded any of my expectations of a design firm. Her team makes my job easy and enjoyable. In order for me to get the job done on budget and on time there needs to be a team that works well together and excels to the finish line. Hearing the words of gratitude from our clients validates the very reason why I chose to work in this industry. I would highly recommend After Design to anyone who wishes their build or update process to be simple and their space to be functional, sleek and stylish. Tyler Melenchuk

I have been fortunate to have worked with Jamie on many levels. We have worked together as colleagues at a Design firm, I have done some contract work for her, and she has helped me greatly with the website www.west41st.com, in which she has graciously allowed some of her talented design to be showcased. Jamie is a true professional. She is an incredibly hard worker, with natural talent that is hard to find. I have seen Jamie grow and develop a signature style that is truly inspiring. She creates spaces that I dream to live in. I would without any ounce of hesitation recommend After Design for your Design project.R.Bertrand, former Registered Interior Designer
