From: Catherine Adams Interior Inc.
About Catherine Adams Interior Inc.: Catherine Adams is a Vancouver based interior designer, who studied interior design at BCIT. She has over 18 years of experience designing office environments, professional buildings, luxury hotels, furniture, and custom homes. What sets her apart is her ability to dive into her client’s roots and learn their personal history. This then develops into the owner’s home, exuding a unique quality and heritage. Catherine’s design philosophy was inspired from a wide range of world travel and mastered through years of experience. At a young age she was always interested in how fashion and interior design intermingled. This definitely shows in her stunning furniture collections and the way she uses colour in her designs. Catherine has always put a lot of focus on attention to detail. This is why any space she designs is a treat for the eyes and a special place for the home owner.

Cantu: What is your favourite project you have worked on and why?
