Welcome to the world of Living in Style Design

“A house is much more than a mere shelter, it should lift us emotionally and spiritually.” – John Saladino

Welcome! My name is Marta Biela and I am the principal of Living in Style Design – a boutique interior design firm that specializes in providing interior design and decorating advice both here in Lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver. I am happy to introduce to you my brand new Living in Style Design blog where I will be posting articles about design, my latest project, plus anything and everything that I come across in my daily work that is interesting and share-worthy. It is my goal to provide you with answers, alternatives, and inspiration to fuel your imagination. I hope that my posts will help you dream, design, and create spaces that are truly yours.

Solving interior design challenges has always been my passion. The options, after all, are limitless! Consider the lifestyle, the needs, the taste, and the preferences – it all plays a role when planning to create or change your living spaces. From heritage-style West coast Craftsman-style home to elegant French Provincial style residence, it is my goal to not only understand your needs, but translate your lifestyle and your personal tastes to reflect the space you want to transform.

By combining my background of formal training in interior design with a bachelor`s degree in mathematics and computer science, I can easily switch between the art of pinpointing the perfect shade for your living room walls with that of making your project comply with building codes and meeting the set budgets. Add to that the fact that I had my first oil painting exhibit after turning eleven, plus extensive travels throughout Europe and you see that you can expect not just your average run-of-the mill design service but something that is unique, fresh, and complements your lifestyle and your home. My projects have ranged from large custom homes to single bathrooms in modest homes, from full-service kitchen and bath design to online, distance-based consultations and planning. I bring the same commitment to service and professionalism to each client, regardless of scope or budget.

Seeing happy customers once my project is finished is what gives me energy and inspires me to search for solutions and materials that make each space unique. There is truly nothing better than walking someone through a freshly-transformed space and delivering a result that marries homeowners` vision with my design.
