“We were very pleased with the experience and overall final results achieved through Alice D’Andrea Design. Prior to bringing Alice on board to assist us with our new home build, we felt so overwhelmed by the endless array of choices and design elements we encountered out in the market place of interior design. Her knowledge, experience and eye to detail quickly made us feel assured in our decision to use Alice’s talents. She was able to not only capture our vision, but also confidently bring it all together and apply it in our home in such a way that literally transformed a blank canvas into a work of art and expression. Throughout our journey of home building, she educated us on the use of certain new materials vs other commonly used ones and helped eliminate many fears we had in the selection process. Alice is very grounded, and always made us feel comfortable. Throughout our collaboration she consistently presented us with updates to various ideas, techniques and schemes through samples, sketches and 3D imagery. Perhaps more importantly, Alice always welcomed our thoughts and ideas. I would highly recommend using Alice D’Andrea Design for any new home build, renovation or simply an upgrade to your interior design project.”
Alice D’Andrea Design was founded in 2015 with the desire to design spaces that reflected our clients lifestyle and brand identity. Our services span residential design, retail and commercial design. Through the years we helped clients all around the Greater Vancouver, Whistler, Vancouver Island and the United States. Our approach and process make it possible to deliver projects remotely. We believe each space has its own story, the location itself sometime speaks revealing which direction the design should go. We are here to facilitate the idea to emerge, make it tangible by guiding you through the design phases, step by step. Functionality, human-centric design and distinction are the principles we based our work on.
Born and raised in Italy surrounded by natural and architectural beauties, which inspired her studies, she obtained a master’s degree in Architecture. After graduation, she worked for an international company as an Interior Designer and moved to Vancouver in 2012.
Here she had the opportunity to develop her design vision, bringing European and North American cultures in sync. Listening to her client’s goals is what Alice thinks is key for the best outcome in a project.
“I feel lucky and grateful for what I do: I want my client to enjoy the adventure and relax during the design process because they feel they are in good hands. My approach is direct, fully involved, and streamlined, helping client to take an informed decision.”
“Alice was amazing to work with. She was extremely flexible and patient. This was my husband and I’s first time building a house – we went back and forth on several decisions and she was never frustrated with us. We needed lots of hand holding and she was perfect for us. She has an amazing eye. We are so pleased with how everything turned out. Would highly recommend Alice’s services and we would happily use her again in the future should we require her help. You are in great hands with Alice!”
“Alice helped us with the design of our kitchen and she did an excellent job. Her ideas made the kitchen a lot more functional and easy to move around, and now that it is completed, it looks fantastic. She helped us with finding the different trades including a local Millworker. Her expertise and design were very valuable and essential for our kitchen renovation.We are very happy with her services.”
“Alice did a wonderful job helping us modernize an older home. We weren’t even in the same city for the first few months, but she went to the home, listened to our wants and needs and made a design plan which fit our budget. During the renovation, she checked in with us and the contractors regularly to make sure everything was going according to plan. She also helped us select some furniture to help complete the whole look. She was very easy to talk to and very receptive to our ideas. We would definitely recommend Alice!”
