Meet the Team
Kendall Ansell – Principal
The principal of Kendall Ansell Interiors in Vancouver, Canada, Kendall Ansell has always believed that happiness starts at home. Growing up, Kendall spent most of her weekends helping her contractor father with family projects and shaping her passion for how people live, one nail and paint swatch at a time.
Her childhood passion soon translated into career ambition, and inspired her to study architectural drafting at Kwantlen Polytechnic University before completing the Interior Design Management program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Keen to start her own business and sit in the boss’ seat, Kendall launched Cherry Interior Design in 2010 with a focus on helping her clients reflect their personal style in their home before rebranding to Kendall Ansell Interiors in 2013. Today, Kendall and her team continue to create beautiful spaces for their clients that are as unique as they are, and with Kendall’s signature eye for design (and love of colour!).
Kendall’s inclusive approach and knowledge of classical design and construction lends to her unique ability to create homes and offices with substance and style that turn her clients’ design dreams into reality. This special touch has earned Kendall four prestigious awards from Houzz.com in their Best of Houzz category from 2014-2019, and an accolade as the 2017 - 2019 Best Interior Design Firm in Burnaby Now.
As an award-winning design expert with a handful of wins under her belt, Kendall has provided insight and tips on seasonal trends and easy renovation projects in Western Living, BC Living, the Vancouver Sun, and others, and designed a capsule collection of pillows with Joue Design. She has also collaborated with such brands as Urban Barn, the Vancouver Home + Design Show, the BC Home + Garden Show and Floform Interiors, among others. With a growing team of passionate and creative individuals, Kendall has continued to develop her business’ reputation as a leading interior design firm that creates dream spaces for clients on the daily, and she isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
When she isn’t making home dreams come true all over the Lower Mainland, Kendall enjoys spending time with her husband and three year old son, Fraser.
Luke Hull – General Manager
Luke Hull started in management at age 16 and through the following years, with positions in some of the most prominent companies around the world, continued to develop those skills. Having earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree with a double major in Business and Theatre, he has developed a range of skills to help develop leaders and manage operations. Luke decided to switch gears for a couple years to obtain his professional designation as a Mortgage Broker from the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business. He was able to broaden his skill set before realizing his true passion for operations and returned to become the General Manager of Kendall Ansell Interiors and Belle Construction. His personal time is generally split between family and friends exploring new places or visiting Vancouver’s craft cocktail hot-spots.
Katelyn Woods – Intermediate Interior Designer
My interest in interior design started at a young age. Growing up with a family continuously building and renovating, I always loved to see the “before and after” results.
After graduating, I went straight to the Art Institute of Vancouver to complete my diploma in Interior Design. I proceeded to start off my career in the hospitality and commercial markets but always knew that I wanted to end up in residential design.
Working with Kendall allows me to explore my passion for residential design and tackle both creative and technical problems.
Ashley Mortensen – Interior Designer
Ashley has recently graduated with a Bachelor of Interior Design from British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver. Recognized by AWMAC as one of the top three students at BCIT for custom millwork design, Ashley’s detail-oriented technical skill is proven. With an exceptional eye for detail, she enjoys working through the various stages of the design process.
With three years of experience working in commercial and residential design, Ashley brings a well-rounded perspective to her design work. Ashley’s strengths lie in her ability to create innovative concepts that translate into detailed designs within the built environment. Furthermore, the experience Ashley gained at BCIT and in the industry has evoked her passion for wellness design, and she is striving towards attaining WELL Building Standard certification and becoming a Registered Interior Designer.
Jessica Campbell – Graphic Designer
Working with Kendall means I get to wear a couple of different hats, which is just how I like it.
As a graphic designer, I have the pleasure of handling the printed collateral for Kendall Ansell Interiors and keeping the website looking tip-top. However, when Kendall and her team complete a job, I also love swooping in to add the finishing touches on a home in preparation for its glamorous photo shoot.
