In pursuit of magic

Studio—

Studio Roslyn is a full-service interior design and consulting studio co-founded by principals Jessica Macdonald and Kate Snyder in Vancouver, British Columbia. We specialize in developing considered design solutions for built environments across the milieu of commercial, institutional and residential space.

We hold dear our core belief that true creativity is not to be in conflict with commerce, and that our work should not be bound by the divisions between art, design, fashion and architecture. We work closely with our clients to establish a strong understanding of their businesses, from finance and operations to aesthetics and brand, to form the foundation of each commission that we engage in. From this understanding, we create spaces that are at times unapologetically bold, sumptuously elegant or charming and playful. Each project is its own ecosystem—but we are constantly placing our client’s needs and desire for success at the forefront of our process. We listen well, research hard, think big and execute strong.

The muse of Roslyn personified provides a conceptual focal point of our studio and our aspiration as designers. She is fearless, provocative and highly intelligent. She knows how to ask the tough questions and make the hard decisions, but she also has a steady hand and a warm heart. She is at the core of what defines our spirit, ethos and aesthetic.
