  • GLDESIGN: Elevating Interior Design with Timeless Sophistication

Gill Lemley Design (GLD), a full-range interior design firm based in Vancouver, has been setting the standard for elevated project aesthetics since its establishment in the fall of 2021. With a combined experience of 10 years in the field, founders Shubneet Gill and Tessa Lemley have perfected the art of blending traditional and modern design styles to create spaces that evolve with their clients.

Shubneet Gill, co-founder, and principal designer highlights, "We specialize in luxury residential projects but also work with commercial and multi-residential clients, ensuring our design expertise reaches far and wide." The idea of founding GLD sprouted from the duo's mutual passion for design and their desire to carve out a niche of their own. "We were working at a design firm, where our friendship blossomed, and were given the opportunity to take on projects independently. The two of us were ready for a change and felt like we were at a point in our lives where we could take on the challenge of owning our own business.", recalls Tessa Lemley, co-founder, and principal designer.

Their partnership thrives on the dynamic fusion of their individual design aesthetics. Tessa's affinity for traditional design styles and Shubneet's penchant for modern eclectic designs create a perfect balance that sets GLD apart in the industry. "Our philosophy emphasizes the significance of interior spaces as avenues for self-expression. Whether crafting retail or residential projects, we prioritize understanding how our environment influences mood, productivity, and lifestyle.", shares Gill.

Over the years, GLD has spearheaded numerous memorable projects, including the Kelowna project and the Balsam project. While their journey has been marked by success, Gill and Lemley have also encountered challenges, particularly in navigating male-dominated trades within the industry. However, through perseverance and professionalism, they have overcome these obstacles and earned respect within the field.In addition to their design expertise, Gill Lemley Design is deeply committed to community involvement and supporting local businesses, through initiatives such as advocating for products made in Canada and participating in design events.

Client collaboration plays a pivotal role in their design process, ensuring that every project exceeds expectations. "We develop personal connections with all of our clients, striving to comprehend their daily routines to guarantee the creation of a functional home tailored to their family's needs.", explains Lemley. Looking ahead, GLD aims to preserve its boutique ambiance while expanding its reach into specialty restaurant and commercial design projects. With a commitment to timeless design principles and client satisfaction, GLD continues to redefine the boundaries of contemporary interior design.
