“Chandra of Absolute Interior Design recently designed, managed and oversaw the construction of our new law offices on Bernard Avenue. We are extremely happy with the services she rendered and are constantly receiving complimentary comments from our clients about our new office style, function and décor. I previously engaged Chandra to design and manage the large scale renovation of our personal residence . Chandra demonstrated the same creative yet efficient professional skills with our home re-design as she did with our law office. I highly recommend Chandra and her team at Absolute Interior Design for potential new clients.”

“I originally contracted Chandra of Absolute Interior Design to help us when building our new home, and then again to help design the new Kelowna offices for Agility Fuel Systems. On both projects, I was immediately impressed with Chandra’s professionalism and knowledge of the design elements required create the unique vision that I had for the space. She listened to ideas, then offered her opinion and presented concise and creative options for consideration. Her understanding of not only interior design, but of the construction elements and timelines made her an invaluable asset. I am convinced that the expertise that she brought to these projects saved us both time and money! I would highly recommend Chandra and Absolute Interior Design for any residential or commercial project.”

“My husband and I realized we would need someone who had a good vision for design of our basement space. A respected friend recommended Chandra Payer. She met with us and also offered to act as the project manager for the project. The projected costs were always very accurate and the work carried out by the trades was beautifully done. I was impressed by how she identified our tastes almost immediately. Chandra certainly knew what would appeal to us. The completed project is beautiful yet practical and exactly what we hoped for. On top of all this, Chandra was friendly, helpful and not at all intimidating or over the top in her recommendations. We highly recommend Chandra’s service!”

Barb & Greg Andreen, West Kelowna

“We used to think hiring an Interior Designer was a frivolous expense. Working with Absolute Interior Design we have realized it’s the most important investment we made when embarking on our renovation. Chandra of Absolute Interior Design worked within our budget and put together a design for our home that exceeded expectations. In addition to having Absolute Interior Design do the design layout and providing advice on styles we hired her to act as the general contractor. We didn't have to coordinate the trades or chase people down to ensure the job ran smoothly. Hiring Absolute Interior Design was money well spent and I would recommend this company to anyone starting a renovation of any scale.”

Tiffany & John Woodfield, Kelowna

“Throughout the design process, we found Chandra to be thoughtful and respectful of our ideas, personal styles and concerns, listening carefully before offering suggestions. I enjoyed her enthusiasm and sense of humor. She is an excellent communicator and is dependable in her follow through. She exhibited extraordinary creativity and a strong knowledge of products, fabrics and services; her customer service skills are unmatched. ”

Lynnaya Frasch, Vernon

“Chandra and the team at Absolute Interior Design did a fabulous job from start to finish. From the design plans to the décor, Chandra took our ideas and made it a reality. Chandra was done on time, and on budget. We couldn’t be happier with the results, it has transformed how our house functions, we now have a “family space” for our kitchen that didn’t exist before! Thank You Chandra!”

Jillian & Roger Wong, Lake Country

“Already working with our contractor, we needed a designer to help “pull it all together”, so we hired Chandra. Chandra has a tremendous collaborative style and was very respectful of my ideas and individual taste. She listened carefully before offering suggestions. Chandra was also very respectful of budgetary constraints and we felt that her services most certainly were worth the money spent. We have had many, many positive comments on our beautiful new rooms and we have Chandra to thank for so much of it. I would highly recommend Absolute Interior Design and look forward to working with Chandra again one day.”

Kathy & Doug Manning, Kelowna

“Thank you so very much for your help with the furniture and paint selections for our home, we appreciate all of your help and advice!”

Michelle and Lonnie Kam, Kelowna

“Chandra, we can't thank you enough for everything that you have done for us with the extensive renovation to our Okanagan summer lake house. It was with apprehension that we set out on the journey to renovate the home and because of you, are so thankful that we did. You gave us confidence to proceed in each and every decision. You kept us informed throughout with budget information, decisions, choices and progress reports. Everything was exactly as you said it would be. You are truly gifted at what you do and it has been an absolute pleasure working with you and your team. Thanks a million!”

Mike and Mary Ellen Miller, Leduc Alberta

“I have had the pleasure of working with Chandra of Absolute Interior Design on two different projects and on each it was an excellent experience. As an experienced builder, I have worked with many different interior designers, yet have found Chandra’s skills to be unparalleled! I found her to be knowledgeable, organized and creative, yet collaborative and approachable. Her understanding of the construction process and vision for the overall design helped each project run more efficiently and actually made my job easier! I look forward to working with Chandra again and would highly recommend her services!”

Grant Petkau - Owner Cienne Construction Solutions Ltd, Kelowna

“When my wife and I decided to build a new home in Kelowna, we contracted a custom home builder. We thought that we would do the interior design work ourselves- it looked so easy! We soon realized that it was far more time consuming and not near as easy as we had thought, and we went looking for a professional to help us out. What a great decision! Chandra from Absolute Interior Design met with us, asked us detailed questions, and really listened to what we wanted our home to look and feel like, she did a wonderful job. She tastefully combined our wants with ideas that we didn't realize we could have, and the results are incredible. Her services not only reduced our stress level, but also added tremendous financial value, we feel like we live in the perfect home! We would recommend Chandra to anyone who appreciates high quality and exceptional service!”

Ken Hilsenteger, Kelowna BC

“Absolute Interior Design recently completed my Kelowna, Westpoint Road home renovation project. The interior design and construction quality was excellent and the project was finished on budget and within my very tight schedule. Chandra and Scott do a great job of managing their excellent network of trades and suppliers and creatively solving and executing challenging design and construction work. I would highly recommend Absolute Interior Design for quality interior design services and home renovation projects. ”

Maurice Pez, Architect, AIBC, MRAIC

“When we thought of doing a renovation to our home we had many concerns. We needed to be able to trust someone a lot as we were getting our home renovated while we were 2500 Km's away. We wanted quality work on time and on budget. We heard so many renovation horror stories and in fact the TV is littered with them. We decided Chandra was the one we would work with as she is there from the start to the finish. The whole process with her was actually amazing. She was easy to work with, had great people working with her and the final product was stunning. Chandra sat down with us and we discussed our vision, budget and concerns about the project. We sat and talked about our lifestyle and how the house would compliment it. Next, she designed our home the way we wanted. The plan was quite spectacular with only one revision being made. Because we were up north this all took place on skype, email, texting, and telephone calls with the occasional visit to Kelowna by us. The value of the ability to change plans, keep the flow of the house design, the wishes of the client while keeping the costs in mind is truly an art at which Chandra excels. Thank you, Chandra and Scott and your crew. You did a remarkable job.”

David and Jocelyn Tonge

“We hired Chandra and her team to do a complete kitchen renovation as well as a facelift for the entire first floor of an older home we recently bought. We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome . We had no difficulty communicating our vision of what we were hoping to achieve. Chandra and Don Waller the talent behind Wood Butcher cabinetry had our kitchen designed in about two meetings. We were impressed with all the trades people involved. They were all a pleasure to have in our home and it was obvious that Chandra commands a lot of respect from the people she works with . We were given a timeline agenda and knew when each stage of work was to happen . Communication with Chandra and her team was excellent . Special touches to the project came from the talented and resourceful Scott Payer. Our project finished within two weeks of the planned completion date and under the budget price we anticipated. How often does that happen !!! We give a big thumbs up to Absolute Interior Design !!”
