We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby
Hello extended family,
This is our first newsletter amongst other firsts. I am officially back from my unofficial maternity leave. On April 15th my husband Ian and I welcomed our baby boy London Mckenzie Mackay Moore to the world; weighing in at 7 pounds 10 ounces. The pregnancy feels as if it went by in the blink of an eye. My baby bump was slow to show so many were surprised at his seemingly quick arrival. With no official maternity leave for a business owner, little time was spent away from the design studio. Since his birth, London’s regular appearances at the office brighten everyone’s day. Juggling motherhood and design has been a challenge I’ve enjoyed facing. Ian and I didn’t know that something so small could turn our lives upside down. But we also didn’t know how much we would enjoy it.

A BIT OF HORN-TOOTING
This year we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary. This was made so much sweeter by being awarded the Consumer’s Choice Award for Best Interior Design Firm in Greater Vancouver. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our success. It means the world to us!
The past two years have brought much change to our boutique design firm. Beyond Beige has relocated to the North Shore in order to accommodate the largest sample showroom in Greater Vancouver. This brings great convenience to our clients. Now you are able view all of the sample materials for your project from our design studio. This relocation to a 3000 square foot design studio has also allowed for new additions to our team, as we are now a team of 8!
Recently we have also had the pleasure of completing a celebrity couple’s Vancouver heritage loft. The clients said ‘run with it’ and we did! As you could imagine our creativity went into overdrive. It was our desire to encapsulate the true character of the owners. We created a space rooted in urban industrial elements, rich in colour, fun, and coziness. Notoriously, when we love a project it tends to win awards. The kitchen from this project won the Red Beacon Home Service Award in the category of Best Kitchen.
To view photographs of our Hamilton project take a look on our Houzz profile as well as a video tour on our Youtube.
With now over 300 residential as well as over 20 hospitality and commercial projects we believe we have the expertise to take on anything. If you or anyone you know is thinking of doing a project we would greatly appreciate being considered for it. Not only do we offer a referral incentive, it just feels good to share something you love!
