    MARY TSAI-CORINDIA, CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY

    “Annaliesse devoted a tremendous amount of time and patience to understanding our end users’ needs based on the various functions of our building. Her knowledge, expertise and creativity helped us ensure the practicality for each piece of furniture without sacrificing style and flair. AK Design was thorough and professional throughout the entire process and was a tremendous asset to the project.”


    LINDSAY McIVOR

    “Our family has entrusted the AK Design team on a few projects over the past several years and we cannot recommend Annaliesse more. Her style and vision, energy and professionalism, and willingness to honour our personal preferences, has set her apart.”


    CONSIGNMENT CANADA

    Fantastic work! Personal and patient. They were happy to revise our plans multiple times until we were confident that we were happy with our room layout. Great taste and vision. I love Annaliesse’s style!


    NATALIE SHAW

    Where do I EVEN begin! We were way over our heads when decided to completely renovate our newly purchased 3800SF house! AK Design guided us the entire way – from removing walls to bathroom tile selection. I found out I have Transitional Style (which really helps knowing when navigating through design sites) which helped us decide (among other things) to paint my 10ft kitchen island Van Dusen Blue, which looks awesome!

    She listens, she has amazing taste, is fashionable and is funny! A big reason why I keep using her…(we had to phase our renovation due to baby #2 arriving) is because she can make quick and amazing decisions – which for a busy mom of now 2 toddlers with a demanding job, is worth all the money. Call her today, she is busy for a good reason, because she is the best! Add value to your biggest asset by utilizing her!


    LAURA H.

    Annaliesse and her team have been an extraordinary addition to our project. Annaliesse has an amazing eye for the details and layers of design, and she is helping us put our vision on paper. She has added new dimensions and angles to our preliminary floor plans, taking our plan to the next level, with the contemporary and unique edge we aim to include.

    She and her team also have excellent ideas for selections and finishes to make the design feel cohesive and elegant. Her work product is top notch and impressive, and her concept packages and drawings help the client visualize the layers and dimensions of each space. Annaliesse’s enthusiasm and passion for design is very evident and contagious, and we appreciate her hard work, patience and honesty throughout the process. We highly recommend her company, and we are very thankful for her beautiful ideas and time to make our home *perfect* for us.


    JOAN M.

    We hired Annaliesse to design a complete renovation of our kitchen and family room. Without a doubt, it was the best decision we could have made. First, she is an amazing designer. She was able to completely capture our design style and bring our dream kitchen to reality. By nature, we are control-freaks but by the end when faced with a design decision, we would simply say “Annaliesse, you decide”. We trusted that she would make the right choice for us, and she always did. Second, she is a happy, positive person who is fun to be around.

    A major renovation involves a lot of headaches and stress, and to interact with someone with her personality makes the process much more enjoyable. We would work with Annaliesse again, and highly recommend her. We absolutely love our space.


    SAM ELLIS

    Annaliesse is such a fireball of talent and creativity. She is so passionate about what she does you can’t help but be passionate along with her! She genuinely cares about what her clients envision for their space and makes sure they’re involved in the process and are completely taken care of.

    She designed the interior of my new town home and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants a designer who will go the extra mile to make a space dream come true.


    DOUG KROEGER

    I am a custom cabinet sales person and have had the pleasure of working alongside Annaliesse and look forward to working together in the future. She is a professional designer who not only understands how to coordinate colours and various materials, but also designs to create spaces that are beautiful and functional. Her attention to detail shows in her drawings that are detailed, accurate, and realistic. I would recommend anyone looking for an interior design to contact Annaliesse for your next project.


    ATHENA PASCALE

    Annaliesse is an extraordinary talent and visionary! I can’t say enough great things about her. We worked together on our small kitchen remodel and she put as much care into the project as she would a much larger scope of work. She always ensured we were happy along the way and truly was excited about helping us create something beautiful.


    ALEX DAMPSEY

    I’ve been fortunate enough to work with AK Design on a few projects now, and am always impressed with the attention to detail they provide on both their designs and on the administrative side. Highly recommended and very reliable.


    AMANDA REGAMBLE

    Annalisse thinks through the details that we didn’t even know we needed to think about! I regularly see things in my home that I’m so grateful that they are the way they are. She’s got tremendous expertise and is a great resource. She’s someone you want on your team.


    CANDICE MORRIS

    Working with Annaliesse was a fantastic experience. She listened to our goals and created a beautiful and functional family home that I look forward to coming home to everyday. Annaliesse was a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to renovate or build their home and look forward to an opportunity to work with her again.


    MARGUERITE & RALF BEHRINGER

    Annaliesse Kelly has a great eye for design and took us through a thoughtful design process. She is very personable and stepped us through various design options, selection of furniture and helped us create a beautiful new space. We are ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED with the end product!


    TIM W.

    We talked to a few other local interior designers before hiring Annaliesse. We had high hopes and very high expectations after our first month of meetings and selecting materials. Annaliesse would tackle each obstacle patiently and creatively. I learned to trust her methods and instincts when a problem surfaced, she was our leader in this project and our job was to provide needs and concerns openly. Day after day, we worked together, our home’s completed!

    We have just moved into our “new home” and everyday we’re discovering bits and pieces of details Annaliesse put into the design of our home. Now looking back I’m really impressed how she was able to foresee all these functional and aesthetic little details at the beginning, and we’re not easily impressed. Hiring the right designer for our home was the key to our successful reno. We love our brand new home! Thank you Annaliesse.


    FAY TU

    Annaliesse worked with us on the interior design and construction plans for our house renovation. While we had already worked with an architect, Annaliesse improved upon the plans considerably; she took the concept to a whole new level and really maximized our house’s potential. As to the interior design, she was very thoughtful and observant. She was able to capture our quirky aesthetic, while maintaining practicality and adhering to a strict budget. Our house is now a space that perfectly reflects our unique needs and personalities.


    EDDIE LIN

    Annaliesse Kelly did the interior design for my new detached house in Burnaby and I am very happy with her service. As an enthusiast of interior design, I went through a few rounds of screening and interviews and finally chose AK, mainly for her outstanding aesthetic taste. The design from AK never disappoints me. Also, what impressed me most is her ability to listen to the customer’s needs and turn them into reality.

    My wife and I had a four-page wish list for the interior design. Annaliesse sat down with us and went through each item on the list, and discovered our needs through the lines then incorporated the needs into her design. I would recommend AK to anyone who wants to hire an outstanding interior designer with caring heart and great tastes.


    HEADLAND CONSTRUCTION

    Annaliesse is creative ball of energy that is unlike anything I have ever seen! Her passion for design runs deep…

    As a builder, we greatly appreciate her clear and organized design packages. This makes pricing and scheduling the project straightforward with no grey areas. We hope to continue to work with AK and her team and would highly recommend her for New Builds, Renovations & Commercial Projects.


    DEAN BAUMAN

    Annnaliesse and her AK Design team are true professionals and I highly recommend working with Annaliesse. I found Annaliesse to be very responsive to my questions, changes and issues that came up with my builder during the construction process. Her ideas and vision were clear and I am extremely happy with the outcome of my new home.


    ROBERT KENFIELD

    Dreamlife worked with AK Design team on the Morrison project in North Vancouver. Their design for the 40 Townhomes was beautifully crafted, and the selection of materials helped the client bring these homes to the market in a powerful and attractive way. Our company, Dreamlife was contracted to help visualize the designs and we had an opportunity to work first hand with AK Design’s team and it was both professional and fun. We would love to collaborate again and highly recommend their company.


    KAREN HARDIE

    We were delighted with the renovation and interior design by Annaliesse Kelly. We created a vision together for the result we were looking for and Annaliesse made it happen. She has a strong point of view and we valued her opinion, steering us toward superior choices that we would not have made on our own. She has a bright, professional demeanour and is a strong advocate for her clients. Everyone who visits our condo is in awe of the stunning outcome.


    BEN THORNHILL

    The AK Design team was fantastic.
    They had great ideas, great material sourcing, and great trades that executed our vision.


    URBAN FIREPLACES

    AK Design is a pleasure to work with. We find the friendly staff to be organized and knowledgeable. Their style is versatile; they will work with you to ensure you end up with the feel you are looking for.

    We highly recommend working with AK Design!


    MICHAEL EMMOTT

    Annaliesse’s approach and excellent taste was invaluable to me in designing and executing my apartment renovation. I had some ideas of course but Annaliesse quickly understood my preferences and personal tastes, and customised a beautiful renovation that still looks as good today as it did 8 years ago! Annaliesse is attentive, hard working and professional, with a fantastic attitude towards getting things done and making them look amazing. Highly recommended.


    ANDREW KARRASCH

    We had an amazing experience working with Annaliesse on the total renovation of our 3 bedroom condo in Yaletown. At the time she was with Shift Interiors, but our relationship was with Annaliesse. She listened to a long long list of requests and came up with an plan that we absolutely loved.

    She was always open to our input throughout the process, but her plan was so well nailed down there really wasn’t really anything to comment on. Annaliesse provided a short list of contractors to interview, and helped us through the process. Once demo and construction commenced she assisted when hiccups occurred – they will happen. The outcome is a space that we love.


    ASHLEY WEISSBERG

    Annaliesse Kelly and her AK Design team were integral to our renovations! AK offered us sound, cost-effective, & personalized leads on sourcing. They are the definition of integrity, striking design and passion!
