SHIFT Interiors recently completed a complete overhaul of our 650 sq ft Kits condo, and we were impressed with their work from beginning to end.
What really stood out:
* Jamie is a fantastic leader and her entire SHIFT team is skilled and personable, from design to deliveries to bookkeeping
* They know how to work with small spaces: Our tiny space feels so much bigger now, with many more storage options
* They are exceptional communicators: We liked their design process because it was efficient but also included plenty of room for dialogue
* Their outstanding network of contractors: Top-notch work from people who care
We are so grateful for the opportunity we’ve had to work with Jamie and everyone from SHIFT. Can’t give a higher recommendation!
Shift Interiors is a pleasure to work with. Jamie and her team produce top quality drawings and specifications that allow us to create accurate budgets and schedules for clients. Shift is able to create synergy between the client, designer and builder for excellent results.
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
We are proud advocates of Jamie and her team, knowing they will always provide clients with beautiful design, savvy budget solutions, and exceptional client care. Our firm has referred Jamie for small – midsized decorating and renovation projects and received nothing but rave reviews from her patrons.
Working with Shift Interiors has been a fantastic experience. Jamie and her team were able to create a space that truly reflects me. They distilled my thoughts, likes, dislikes, ideas and style into a design that I could never have imagined on my own and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Shift’s team was organized, methodical, creative and professional. I already hired them twice to work with and if I had more space I’d do it again!

As a builder we have worked with a number of interior designers and Shift Interiors 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.
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
I have photographed with Jamie Deck on numerous projects over the span of a year and have really enjoyed working with such a talented designer who is focused, efficient, creative and has an eye for detail. Her spaces exude simplicity, style, cutting edge and fun.
“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.”
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.
Shift Interiors are a super group of design professionals to work with. Great at communication and executing the ‘ideas’ from paper to reality. Excellent at creating form and function with small spaces, this where they shine. Also have a unique style of what the modern home should be, warm with a comfortable touch.
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 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.
While we fell in love with the location and the ‘bones’ of our new home, there were many challenges to be addressed: storage, adding in heritage elements, updating certain aspects and overall creation of a clean, open design that flowed yet created modern, simple and distinct spaces. Jamie listened, brainstormed, and then created a plan that reflected our taste and lifestyle, and that was managed with an achievable budget. Her enthusiasm and highly collaborative nature made her a pleasure to work with. We love our new home – thanks to Jamie and the team!
I have had the pleasure of working with Jamie on a number of projects where not only was she the Interior Designer, but also the de facto project manager, coordinating the various trades & logistics on behalf of her client. My company’s participation in these projects was the design and installation of custom closet organizers. I found Jamie to have a keen sense of style & design, with an easy going yet highly professional management modus operandi. Clients and suppliers alike thoroughly enjoy working with her, and I shall look forward to continue doing so.
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.
