Happy Home Design is a boutique design company based in Nanaimo and serving clients in Central Vancouver Island, and occassionally Metro Vancouver.

let's make your home your happy place!

Our design philosophy is simple, your home should be your happy place. As Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, "There is no place like home." However, this doesn't happen through the clicking of rubber slippers or the waving of a magic wand, but through a series of thoughtful space planning, careful curation of furniture, art works, wall coverings, window treatments, and the right colour scheme. If you ever feel lost when shopping for furniture or choosing the right colour paint, we are here to help you navigate through all those difficult decisions. When your home is both functional and beautiful, and when you have achieved a feeling of home, you will be happier! If you don't believe me, just read what our past clients had to say about us.

We had our humble beginning in Vancouver in 2007 and in mid-2022, we relocated to Central Vancouver Island, and specifically, Nanaimo. Our projects range from luxury houses to small condos. To us, there is no home too big or too small. However, we do have a niche in creating beautiful and functional smaller homes.

We were named one of the 30 best interior design companies in Vancouver (when we were formerly known as CHAN + DEE DESIGNS)  for our specialty in small-space design. We were also named one of the 8 best options for interior design in Vancouver for small space design by Handyman Reviewed.

There are two ways for us to work with you. With our stage 1, 2, and 3, our full design service takes you step by step through the design process to take the headache and chaos out of decorating or renovating a home. Otherwise, our one day one room makeover is ideal if you want something done quickly and are willing to less "picky". We rely on experience, expertise, and impeccable integrity to complete projects on time, on budget, and with consistently happy results. So whether it's a small condo or a big house, let's make home your happy place!

there is a story behind every happy home

create your happy home in 3 easy steps

stage one:
initial design consultation

Our initial consultation gives you access to our small space designers for up to 2 hours to give you clarity and direction to create that beautiful home you've always wanted.  It's comprehensive enough to be a stand-alone session for some homeowners. It's a great way to kick start any decorating or renovation project that you have been planning for your home.

stage two:
design service
If the design consultation leaves you wanting more, then the next step is to proceed to our design service. We will give you a complete design for the room, complete with space planning, a floor plan, a mood board, and our most popular feature , 3D design to help you visualize the room. Two revisions are included in the design service package.

stage three:
implementation service
Stage three is where we will execute and bring the design to life. We begin to source out each furniture item, wall art, lighting, accessories, and so forth, and store them in our warehouse until installation day. We'll also order paints, wallpapers, and everything else and make arrangements for different trades to work in your home. Staying within our agreed budget is one of our top priorities. We will help you manage every aspect of the project so that it will be as stress-free as possible. We'll also do our best to keep a short time frame even though it's increasingly challenging sometimes.

testimonials from happy clients

"They are... really, really good at working with what's already there so that you aren't throwing out too much and saving money..."

"These guys are wonderful! Danny's design expertise combined with Sandra's organization and finishing touches make for a truly great design team. They have done four rooms for us so far: a home office for me, two kids bedrooms and another office/art room for the kids. They are great at working in small spaces and really, really good at working with what's already there so that you aren't throwing out too much and saving money at the same time. Highly recommended"

"I am amazed at how much more spacious my living area is now..."

Happy Home Design worked miracles in my 640 square foot condo... They have transformed my small space with all it’s quirky angles, limited lighting and family heirlooms into a spacious yet cozy, cohesive, calm and welcoming place. I am amazed at how much more spacious my living area is now... I approached this project with significant trepidation and wariness. Danny and Sandra spent time to get to know me and to find out what was important in my life. They did not rest until everything was completed and I was satisfied. I would recommend Happy Home Design for any small or large redesign home project you can imagine. Thank you, Happy Home Design Team. You are the best.

"They re-purposed my existing furniture and decorations, and made many functional changes. The results are wonderful!"

Danny and Sandra are outstanding! After my husband passed away, I needed changes done to my condo so that it would have a fresh, "new" feel. They re-purposed my existing furniture and decorations, and made many functional changes. The results are wonderful! As well, they are fun, listen well, and work very quickly. Thank you so much Danny and Sandra. I appreciate your supportive attitude and help. A truly creative couple.
