Although Colleen is new to the Luxe family, she joins us with decades of design experience and furniture product knowledge. After many years of living in Vancouver and Kelowna, Colleen has happily returned to the city of her birth, Victoria. With interests that include art, music, cooking and architecture Colleen lives and breathes design personally and professionally. She is innovative, resourceful, resilient and expresses great gratitude for her family.
An ardent follower of the dynamic Canadian design duo, Yabu Pushelberg and Kelly Hoppen, Colleen describes her personal style as casually elegant. “Nothing to precious or slick,” she says. “Natural linens layered in with timeless velvets and warm mid-tone woods. When you cross the threshold of my home, I want you to feel a sense of calm and graciously welcomed. Kick off your shoes and curl up.”
You may be surprised to know that Colleen is a TV Star! She was a regular guest on the Urban Designer program that aired on Vancouver's CTV Morning Show in 2008. She will gladly provide autographs when asked, but insists that the Paparazzi keep photographs to a minimum please.
The best part of her day at Luxe Home Interiors is the ability to create beautiful rooms that are timeless, functional and highlights each client’s personality and lifestyle. Having started her career just steps away in Victoria’s historic downtown, Colleen is excited that our move to Yates Street has created a full circle moment.
