Learn about what we do and meet Lori.
I’m Lori Steeves, Founder and Creative Director of Simply Home Decorating, a boutique Interior Design Firm based in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
My passion is uncovering the hidden potential in my clients’ homes and transforming them into refined, collected and enduring spaces that they love.
I believe in the magic of GREAT design, the beauty and ease that comes from every detail being carefully considered, and I strive to bring that to every project.
Over the years I've honed a creative process that starts with listening – hearing what you want, understanding what you need and using what I learn from you to create the perfect backdrop for your life.
In addition to the hundreds of clients that I have served in my 20 years as an Interior Design professional, I have lived through eleven personal home renovations so I know first-hand the challenges that you face when updating your home.
You can count on me to put all of those years of hard earned experience to good use, expertly guiding you through the process, saving you time and helping you make the right decisions, resulting in a stylish home that is coordinated and comfortable, a house that you and your family will be proud to call home.
If you have just moved into a new home, if your rooms feel dated or unfinished, if you are ready to invest in your experience of home I want to hear from you. Click here to schedule your complimentary discovery call with me today.
“Lori did for us what no other decorator managed to do — she made us happy! She came back to us with a design concept full of genius! She took elements from each of our styles and blended them into one. Not only did we love the overall look but she incorporated each of the sentimental items that we wanted included, and it all worked together beautifully.”
B. Miller, Port Moody
“Lori truly has the eye of an artist, and fused her ideas with our needs and possessions to create a warm, energized and eclectic living environment that we love.”
C. Campbell, North Vancouver
“Our main floor is completely transformed, and we cannot wait to entertain family and friends in our new space. I cannot speak highly enough about Simply Home Decorating and I look forward to our next project together!”
S. Clarke, Port Moody
“Every day we look at each other and just smile at our new place. We absolutely love the design and furnishings! Would we hire Lori again? In a heartbeat! Would we recommend her to our family and friends? A resounding YES!”
Colin and Kevin, Vancouver, B.C.
