Rachel
Interior Designer

Throughout life, Rachel has always had a passion for fine arts and design. As a child she expressed her creativity through building homes out of her brother’s Lego and she always enjoyed decorating her room. This interest only grew, and as she matured, Rachel drew inspiration from shows on HGTV and always found herself involved in any home improvement projects her parents would take on.

In 2009, Rachel decided to fulfill her dreams to pursue a career in Interior Design by enrolling at The Art Institute of Vancouver. After receiving a diploma in Interior Design and Foundation of Design, she started her professional career at a small boutique firm in the Fraser Valley. Rachel’s love for residential design only grew over the next four years and allowed her to develop her own design style through enhanced skills and techniques.

Then deciding to take some time to travel and live abroad, Rachel spent two years calling Scotland home and ventured around Europe and the Middle East. Her experience of diverse cultures, traditions, and architecture helped to create a new perspective and appreciation for design. Rachel returned home to accept a position at SGDI and has been working alongside homeowner’s to create their perfect functional drawn space ever since. She utilizes the endless inspiration experienced on her travels to create distinctly sophisticated spaces and hopes to continue her travels in the future and see as much of the world as possible.

“Form follows function – that has been misunderstood.
Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.” –
Frank Lloyd Wright

What People Are Saying

Lawrence Green

"I was impressed not only by Sarah's design ability, but also with her level of construction knowledge. I have heard that a lot of designers are good at making things pretty, but are not that great at understanding how things are actually built- Sarah is fantastic at both. I recommend them to anyone and everyone I know without hesitation."

Diane and Vince Grdina

"We had the pleasure of working with Sarah on the construction of our new home. We had a lot of fun working with them and found them always thoughtful, mindful, and professional. We would highly recommend their firm and would use them again without hesitation."

Pete Rackow

"We were immediately impressed with Sarah's ability to assess our needs and understand the type of home my wife and I wanted for us and our 3 boys. Her attention to detail is flawless and every inch of our fully renovated home is thoroughly thought through. I felt like they cared about our home as much as we the homeowners did."
