We all have a personal style and your home should reflect it. Whether it’s a splash of your favourite colour on the wall, or full room inspiration drawn from a cherished accessory, my goal is to help you turn your home into a personalized oasis.
I know it can be nerve-racking to make big changes or venture into the world of colour, but my mission is to make redesigning your space a fun, engaging, and creative process for everyone.
After leaving a successful career in sales, I studied interior design at BCIT and jumped into the industry in 2006. I moved to Victoria in 2008 and, a year later, started I Dare-Ya Designs as a side hustle.
Since then, I’ve worked with over 150 clients including countless families and couples creating homes they love.
When I’m not designing dream homes and fabrics, you’ll usually find me running the beach, kayaking, cycling, or hiking. Here on Vancouver Island, it’s easy to draw inspiration from endless nature, a laid back pace of life, and that quintessential artistic Islander flair.
