About Emerge
 

It’s the relationships that matter. We value active correspondence and enjoy getting to know people on a personal level. We inspire working environments that will be filled with laughter and life’s simple pleasures.

Our passion for travelling greatly influences our spaces with bold sense of colour and is one of the most important aspects of my life. At Emerge we exist to have highly inventive. Unique ideas that make us uncomfortable are great ideas.

"Living in the Lower Mainland, Kootenays and the Peace Region, I am constantly captivated by my surroundings. I can't think of a better place to draw creative inspiration from. I believe natures influence can provide inspiration, functional clues and aesthetic forms for a basis in design."

Testimonials
In Their Words
"We hired Emerge Design to update our deck in 2016. Gwyntie and team did such a fantastic job, when it came time to start planning a major kitchen/living room/powder room reno, we immediately returned to Emerge Design. Boy... did she deliver! She transformed our house into a home and had it all done whilst we were away at work. Gwyntie's eye for design is simply brilliant and she managed to capture the exact feel and look we wanted for our home. Nothing was too big a deal and she made sure we both got what we liked in the design. The entire process was so fun to work on and she made sure we were a part of it throughout. Anytime we wanted to connect she set up a Skype call and went through everything in great detail. We couldn't wait to return home to see it completed and we couldn't have been happier with the finished result. If you want an interior designer who has a fantastic vision, is fun and reliable, then look no further than Gwyntie and her team at Emerge Design."

John-Paul & Bo Lamb, Homeowner, Client
"I had the pleasure of working extensively with Gwyntie following the opening of the new Fort St. John Hospital & Peace Villa Residential Care Facility on the interior design project. Gwyntie was able to create a therapeutic and community oriented environment by working with local artists in which she introduced nature and a real sense of healing to the facility.

We have received numerous compliments from the public regarding the interior ambiance of the facility. Gwyntie was provided a detailed work plan and proposed a reasonable budget and she was able to stay on budget and on time."

Angela De Smit, Chief Operating Officer at Fort St. John Hospital & Peace Villas Residential Care Facility
"Emerge is a real addition to any project and a time saver. We have been able to work as a successful team, and keep projects on budget. Working with Gwyn has been a major factor in client satisfaction on our projects, true story!"

Eric Bell, Principal at Northern Legendary Construction
"One word... AMAZING! The ladies at Emerge are professional, prompt and truly talented! Gwyntie was able to determine my style and likes from a simple questionnaire. And I did not know what my style was. Absolutely thrilled with the end results!"

Kim Rossi, Client
"We first worked with Gwyntie to redesign our kitchen, dinning room and then our great room. Gwyntie was very enjoyable to work with and a professional with her designing knowledge and drawings. Gwyntie's hard working and cheerful attitude make easy to recommend her for any interior project."

Bryan Gardner, Client
"Gwyntie has been a pleasure to work with. She has a lovely easy going personality, great ideas and taste,and is a great listener.
I've appreciated how she handled and organized all of the different trades with confidence. She is very organized, and was always available when i needed her.
I would highly recommend her."

Annette Schrober, Client
"Being new to Canada, we had no idea how to go about a remodel on our house or shop for new accessories. Gwyntie and her crew made our experience so easy....everything from finding our contractor to providing multiple choices for us to choose from. Everything from paint colors, furniture, art work, and all other items, she brought right to us! Emerge Designs made the whole affair so easy and stress-free!"

Cece & Hod Irvine, Client
"Emerge Design was contracted to do an extensive renovation for Lake View Credit Union in 2012. I worked closely with Gwyntie van Tuyl throughout the renovations, from the design stage through to completion. I was immediately impressed with Gwyntie as she took the time to understand the culture at Lake View Credit Union before drafting any design plans.

Gwyntie considered our values every step of the way, inkling re-using as much existing office furniture as possible. This was an onerous task that Gwyntie undertook with energy and drive that ensured our values were respected. Through the inevitable hiccups along the path of a major renovation, Gwyntie was professional, accountable, and treated everyone around her with respect and kindness. Gwyntie found a way to make our building warm and inviting, while ensuring that our requirements around privacy were met and the needs of our staff were fulfilled.

Most importantly, Gwyntie kept the values of Lake View Credit Union front of mind, even though this made her job more difficult at various stages of the renovations. Gwyntie is a bright, refreshing individual who puts the needs and wants of her clients first. I highly recommend Emerge Design for any renovation or design build project."
