MEET ABIGAIL

  
Hey Everyone, I’m Abigail; A prairie girl who fell in love with the big city but kept getting pulled back by those big blue skies (also attainable house prices!).

After too many years in school, I was living in Vancouver, had a great family life but hated my job, was barely scraping by and just could not find the right fit. My dad called and said “Hey, my office manager is leaving. Do you want to come back to Lethbridge part time and run the office while you figure out what your next move is?" I reluctantly said yes, thinking I was too good for the family business.

Well folks, that was 5 years ago. My dad is mostly retired (I’m sure he wishes fully retired) and I live and breathe this business. It is what fuels my fire, has grown my passion and this is how I impact the world.

My degree is in Political Science and I always pictured myself changing the world in a huge way but then, over time, I realized the way you impact the world is to change a life, create a space and encourage others to make decisions that over time create lasting change. So that’s what we do. 

We create spaces where couples, families and businesses can grow in a way that CHANGES.THE.WORLD.

And PS, if you were wondering, my family moved out to #YQL with me and although they don’t want to admit it, I think they love those big blue skies as well (I’m pretty sure they could do without -40 though).

Our Philosophy

We are believers in modern design.
This means clean lines, functional living and beautiful aesthetic.

We believe that every single being in a house needs to be thought of.
Do you have dogs? Their access to the backyard needs to be easy. Kids? You need a ton of storage to keep the mess to a minimum.

We believe function ALWAYS comes first.
If a space doesn't work for you and the way you live, who cares what it looks like.

We believe this is a two-way relationship.
Mutual respect, communication and creativity are expected. Nothing ever goes 100% to plan. We always have 3 different solutions on hand but you need to be open-minded to those options.

We believe that good design can be accessible to everyone.
Whether you have a budget of $5k or $50k, you can have a nice home. You do not have to settle for less. Our favourite clients are actually those on a budget. Nothing gets us on a high like finding a $12 tile for $3.50. You do not have to do this alone just because you aren't a millionaire!

We believe in making the world a better place.
This means we recycle when we can, we donate everything possible and we give back to our community. From highway cleanups to Operation Rednose to charity galas, we do what we can.

We believe in collaboration.
This is one of the most important aspects to us. We are a team. Our staff, trade partners, clients, friends, family and followers. We can only do this when everyone works together towards a common goal.
