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 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.

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 – Junior Interior Designer
I grew up among the orchards of the Okanagan Valley and was encouraged from an early age to explore my creative side and to adventure often. From a very young age, and with my hands in as many art classes as possible, I knew that working towards a life-long career in “creating” would always be my goal.

Upon attending the British Columbia Institute of Technology, I was awarded a diploma in commercial design with distinction as well as multiple awards of recognition. I'm returning to school in the Fall to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design at B.C.I.T. and I'm looking forward to adding my new skills back into this amazing team.

Inspired by innovative design practices, I always keep an eye to the details when designing spaces, ensuring they're tailored to the clients' wants, needs and lifestyle.

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.

When I’m not working with Kendall and her team, I can be found here:
