Our Projects

At Emerge, we design commercial and residential environments that inspire, delight, and enhance our clients’ day-to-day. We balance our fresh and inventive aesthetic with our keen attention to functionality. Our varied clients are found all across British Columbia, other parts of Canada, and the United States.

A beautiful home reflects the personality and values of those who live within its walls. Carefully considered space-planning, finishes, materials and objects enable day-to-day living that is effortless and comfortable. At Emerge, we enjoy getting to know our residential clients as well as possible so we can design spaces unique to them.

A balance of practicality, navigation, aesthetics and branding is central to a well-designed work environment. Our focus is bright, open designs that result in spaces where employees like to work and customers like to visit.

In Their Words

“When I decided to renovate my home, I was overwhelmed by the number of choices and decisions which needed to be made. I quickly realized I couldn’t do it on my own. The best decision I made was to hire Emerge Design. Throughout the entire design process, Gwyntie and Jenna listened to what I wanted to accomplish, guided me through the final furniture decisions, and the end result exceeded my expectations. They presented ideas and options which I didn’t know existed and they made it easy, almost stress free, for me to make decisions. But the most fun was when we were working with their computer design of the renovations, knocking down walls and changing furniture placement, all so I could get an idea of what it would look like.

Gwyntie and her staff are professional as well as fun. They also worked seamlessly with my general contractor and her crew, who told me how much they appreciated the design book provided. These designers are worth every penny and will probably save you money in the long run by preventing bad decisions.”

Janet Thomas, Garden Bay, March, 2021

“We hired Emerge Design to update our deck in 2016. Gwyntie and team did such a fantastic job, when it came time to start planning a major kitchen/living room/powder room reno, we immediately returned to Emerge Design. Boy… did she deliver! She transformed our house into a home and had it all done whilst we were away at work.

Gwyntie’s eye for design is simply brilliant and she managed to capture the exact feel and look we wanted for our home. Nothing was too big a deal and she made sure we both got what we liked in the design. The entire process was so fun to work on and she made sure we were a part of it throughout. Anytime we wanted to connect she set up a Skype call and went through everything in great detail. We couldn’t wait to return home to see it completed and we couldn’t have been happier with the finished result. If you want an interior designer who has a fantastic vision, is fun and reliable, then look no further than Gwyntie and her team at Emerge Design.”

“We hosted a sneak preview this evening for our employees, directors and their families.“Wow” was the one constant word I kept hearing.
My sincerest “Thank You” for making the dream come to life!!”

Ken Dickson, CEO at Spruce Credit Union

“I had the pleasure of working extensively with Gwyntie following the opening of the new Fort St. John Hospital & Peace Villa Residential Care Facility on the interior design project. Gwyntie was able to create a therapeutic and community oriented environment by working with local artists in which she introduced nature and a real sense of healing to the facility.

We have received numerous compliments from the public regarding the interior ambiance of the facility. Gwyntie was provided a detailed work plan and proposed a reasonable budget and she was able to stay on budget and on time.”

Angela De Smit, Chief Operating Officer at Fort St. John Hospital & Peace Villas Residential Care Facility

“Emerge is a real addition to any project and a time saver. We have been able to work as a successful team, and keep projects on budget. Working with Gwyn has been a major factor in client satisfaction on our projects, true story!”

Eric Bell, Principal at Northern Legendary Construction

“One word… AMAZING! The ladies at Emerge are professional, prompt and truly talented! Gwyntie was able to determine my style and likes from a simple questionnaire. And I did not know what my style was. Absolutely thrilled with the end results!”

Kim Rossi, Client
“We first worked with Gwyntie to redesign our kitchen, dinning room and then our great room. Gwyntie was very enjoyable to work with and a professional with her designing knowledge and drawings. Gwyntie’s hard working and cheerful attitude make easy to recommend her for any interior project.”
Bryan Gardner, Client
