Cottage Fever Interior Design

7 January 2019

I hired Francis to photograph an interior design renovation project that I had recently completed. He responded to my enquiry quickly, was very clear on his pricing structure, found a time that worked for both of us and showed up on time. His edited photographs came back soon after the shoot and they were of outstanding quality. He was truly professional while on the job and made great suggestions to improve the shots. I highly recommend hiring Francis. More...

We hired Francis for interior portfolio photography services. We had a very small time frame to prep the locations and were running behind schedule, Francis jumped in to help and was hands on from start to finish. Turn-around time is excellent and he is very reasonably priced given the quality of his work. I can be a bit picky, and he accommodated all of my requests without a moment's hesitation. I would recommend his services to anyone marketing a home or service! More...

My wife and I hired Navin to design our first home - a three bedroom townhouse - and we could not have made a better choice. He helped us with room design as well as the selection of furniture, lighting, flooring, and paint colour.

Navin did a tremendous job of drawing on his own (extremely!) vast knowledge of design and decor concepts while also responding to our wishes and needs around style and functionality. I get the sense that he is very versatile in his ability to work with different styles, but that does not diminish the extent of his knowledge within any one style area. We went for a mid-century modern look and Navin was consistently able to find items that were even better (and cheaper) than what we had expected.

Navin's many talents are only matched by his kind and friendly demeanor. Did I mention he is one of the hardest working people I've ever met? You absolutely cannot go wrong with hiring Navin.

I engaged Navin to design the interiors for my client’s new home in Richmond this year. He went above and beyond my expectations as usual because he really puts passion into his work. On this particular project, the attention to detail and integrity of the design wowed us all. You've done it again, Navin! More...

I have worked with Navin on a few different projects now…. What really sets Navin apart from other interior designers is his true ability to listen to his clients and who they are and what they want. Navin is a pleasure to be around, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for advice on how to create a great space that they will love. More...

Navin helped me to create a space plan and furnishing concept for a new hi-rise Condo in Vancouver’s West Georgia downtown core. I was looking for a bachelor live-work concept, and I was tremendously pleased with his valuable suggestions in selecting several boutique design elements for the space. What I liked most about Navin is that he always respected my final decisions. Together with a contractor team, I succeeded in realizing my dream sanctuary. I found his services both trustworthy and enjoyable! More...

A couple years ago we were presenting our work at an interior design function where I first met Navin. We got chatting about our passion for furniture and designing so when presented the opportunity to work together on a custom piece of furniture I was thrilled. From the first moment I met Navin felt a deep respect and admiration and aspired to one day work with him.

He such a keen eye for proportion, detail , and knows a great deal about furniture. He was willing to work through the design process and realized that to design something well it must be well thought out. The walnut sofa with its removable arms for a day bed and 100% natural latex foam perfectly addressed both sustainability and style for this unique piece !

I would highly recommend Navin's services to anyone looking to design a unique piece of furniture or need help with spacial planing.

I admire his coordination of furnishings and attention to detail that work beautifully together in bringing out each unique space. From his interactions with clients I can tell they have always been very satisfied with the final look. I highly recommend Navin to the condo owner looking for the ideal design concept for their space. More...

“We consulted Navin for developing a design plan for our bedroom in our new home. He provided a few concepts for us to consider which could work nicely in our space, given his understanding of our style. We just finalized on one concept and are very happy with the look after its installation. Not only did he save us tremendous time in coming up with the ideal solution for our space, it was a joy to work with Navin! We can proudly recommend his service to anyone!” More...

Navin designed my penthouse with utmost professionalism and unparalleled attention. I felt comfortable with Navin from day one and appreciated his honesty on every single detail. With under 600 sq. ft. to work with, Navin was thoughtful on every nuance that impacted my space and was always courteous. My vision was easily transformed into the physical space thanks to Navin. I feel fortunate to have Navin on my team. More...
