The Online Design Service.

Virtual Design (also known as e-design) is an online interior design service. Perfect for remote clients (within North America) and also great for those local to Vancouver, BC that are seeking design guidance.

This service may be for you if…

/ your space doesn’t align with your current lifestyle, vision or values.

/ you feel like you’ve outgrown the hand-me-down furniture your grandparents gave you when you first moved out.

/ you have an idea of what you like but have a hard time cohesively putting the space together.

/ this a fresh start for you and you’re looking to make this space a reflection of your new life.

/ you are in a transitional period or welcoming a big change (newly single, having a baby, moving in with your partner or roommate, etc.)

/ you’ve always wanted to work with a designer and are excited about the simple process of doing this online!


The Three Step Process.

O N E

I send you a questionnaire which outlines your needs and values (lifestyle, aesthetic, budget + timeline) so we can get clear on the direction of this project from the start! Along with your completed questionnaire, you will send me photos & measurements of your space.

Based on the measurements you provide, I create a computerized floor plan (similar to this one)

*I will be referring to the photos you send to account for structural or fixed elements in the space that may need to be considered (windows, columns, lighting, baseboard heaters, electrical panels, etc).

My favourite part! After data collecting and producing a floor plan, I create a scheme (like this example). Depending on what your needs are for your space, this may include furniture/lighting/art/accessories that align with your questionnaire results and are a suitable scale to your floor plan. This will also include a resource shopping list with details of each item (dimensions, material, finish, lead time, price, etc.)

My Approach.

CURIOUS, RESOURCEFUL & CREATIVE.

I have many interests that ignite my passion for design - travel, nature & connecting with others especially inspires me. My approach to each project is intentional and purpose driven. My personal promise to each client is to listen, ask thoughtful questions & deliver exceptional service every step of the way.

My Style.

My personal design aesthetic is constantly evolving, through travel experiences, material exploration and collaboration with others in the industry. Currently, I would describe my style as simple, warm and modern with a love of subtle contrast. I often turn to Southern California for a laid back vibe and inspiration from the ocean. I’m also drawn to the simplicity, warm wood and beauty of Scandinavian interiors. I like to integrate design principles from both California & Scandinavia. That being said, I do not push my preferences on my clients. Rather, I love to help each client find their own personal style through the exploration of questions and visuals.

My Experience.

I was immersed into this industry ten years ago. After completing the Interior Design program at BCIT, I worked for a local Real Estate Developer, learning the ins and outs of residential construction from a sales and marketing perspective. Years later, I joined a staging company and worked as a designer transforming Real Estate properties. My last position before starting my own studio was working for an Award Winning design firm specializing in residential renovations for Vancouver homes and vacation properties.

I’m so grateful for all my experiences leading up to the creation of Kristy Vail Studio.

My mission is to create aligning spaces for my clients to enjoy. I love to show my clients the positive psychological impact interior design can have on our environments & how it can truly elevate our everyday life.
