Happy Home Design is a boutique design company based in Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver island

Make your Vancouver Island home your happy place

Welcome to Happy Home Design. For the past 15 years, we have been designing happy homes for families who live in Vancouver. We recently followed God's leading within us to move to Nanaimo for His testimony there. It was a surprise to us, but we honestly couldn’t be happier and have not looked back. While we absolutely love the island life, Vancouver was our home for more than 30 years; so it is not without heartache, that we are announcing that we will be limiting our business in Vancouver so we can focus on our life and business in Nanaimo and within the central island region. We may still do online consultations as well as take on one day makeover projects, but we will not be doing full renovation projects.

While we used to specialize in small spaces, designing for bigger homes shares all the same design principles. Sometimes, a bigger home doesn't quite feel like a "home" because it lacks overall cohesiveness and coziness. It's not just about having bigger space, but better, more well-planned space.

Our projects range from small studios in the Olympic Village to luxury homes in Kerrisdale. We were named one of the 30 best interior design companies in Vancouver. We were also named one of the 8 best options for interior design in Vancouver for small space design by Handyman Reviewed. Whether you live in a big house or a small condo, your home should be your happy place by being a reflection of who you are. With our system of steps 1, 2, and 3, we offer you different options to take the headache and chaos out of decorating or renovating a home. Let us help you create your 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. You get two revisions in the design service package.
stage three:
implementation service
Step three is where we will execute and bring the vision 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.

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.
