“We strive to create a unique design experience for our clients where they are involved and feel heard. Blue Alice Design takes the time to get to know our clients and build a relationship from the beginning. We dive into how you use your space, pay close attention to what works and what can function better. We treat our relationship with builders and contractors in the same manner, we learn about their process and work with their preferred suppliers.”
Blue Alice Design focuses on the design process and creating a detailed package for our clients, the pricing and construction process are passed over to the appropriate trades and contractors but we are there to the end to ensure the design is executed as planned.
ABOUT KARA GIBSON-GUYITT
Designer – Wife – Mom – Golfer – Denim Shirt Lover
Kara discovered her passion for design and creativity early on. When she began college with the intent of being a sports psychologist, she soon realized that would never give her a creative outlet. She read the course guide for “Interior Design & Architecture” and changed her path; it has led to a fulfilling career spanning two provinces and 20 years. After 12 years at a local design firm and most recently as Head Designer of Love It or List It Vancouver Season 5, Kara’s new venture is designed and planned with love.
She finds inspiration in everything around her: sunsets, water, travel, family. Her designs range in style from modern to farmhouse to rustic, all based on her client’s desire. When she’s not designing, she cherishes time with her son, Witten, and husband, Jason, and enjoys golf, travel and reading.
WHY THE NAME BLUE ALICE
As with all design projects, Kara has a personal connection to it, Alice was Kara’s grandmother, a business woman before her time with roots in clothing and fashion in Vancouver. With numerous mutual loves, the colour blue was one of those. From blues of the ocean and the sky that often brought the two together, the name sparked the start of this venture.
“Green calm below, blue quietness above.”
